Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.  

There is no trope in spyfi thrillers quite like the image of an assassin donning a carefully selected wig before strutting down a hallway, gun in hand, on their way to eliminate a target. Taraji P. Henson knows this and in the first trailer for Proud Mary, she absolutely kills it. Figuratively. And then literally.

Henson stars as the film‚Äôs titular Mary, a hitwoman on the Boston mafia‚Äôs payroll whose life is suddenly derailed when she‚Äôs interrupted by a young boy during a job. The trailer hits all the sorts of beats you‚Äôd expect from an assassin action-thriller‚ÄĒplenty of guns, punching, and explosions‚ÄĒbut there‚Äôs nothing quite like watching Taraji chug a bottle of Hennessy after a fight as Tina Turner‚Äôs ‚ÄúProud Mary‚ÄĚ blares in the background:

Proud Mary hits theaters January 12th, 2018.
