It’s not summer unless there’s a new superhero movie, and even though Netflix’s latest big original movie premiere isn’t about that group of superheroes weren’t most familiar with, it’s still worth adding to your watch list.
Based on the comic book of the same name by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernández, The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron as Andy, a warrior who leads a team of mercenaries with the power to heal themselves have protected the mortal world for hundreds of years. But when their powers become exposed, they must stop those who seek to steal their abilities.
The Old Guard comes from director Gina Prince-Bythewood, who also directed such movies as Love & Basketball, Disappearing Acts, The Secret Life of Bees and Beyond the Lights. Theron follows up a string of well-received, sometimes award-nominated showings with another potential hit. Netflix keeps the ball rolling on an adventurous, action-packed summer full of movies and shows you don’t want to miss. Make sure not to miss Charlize Theron in The Old Guard when the movie makes its global streaming premiere on July 10.
