Empire and Hidden Figures Taraji P. Henson has taken Cookie’s feisty to a whole new level as she dons her black leather and takes up a gun to turn slick hit woman in the trailer for Proud Mary.

The all new female lead action film is directed by London has Fallen’s Babak Najafi from a screenplay by John Stuart Newman & Christian Swegal and Steven Antin, based on a story by Newman & Swegal. Producers are Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan.

Set to Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” (predictable), we are introduced to Mary (Henson) as she dresses herself in her lethal black leather outfit including her knee high kinky boots with heels so thin and high any normal woman wouldn’t be able to walk in let alone take out a bunch of musclebound men.

Arming herself with a gun from a wardrobe stocked to the nines, Mary goes along her merry little way, shooting her way through the trailer that tells us absolutely nothing about the film until she is finally asked by a young boy “and who are you” which she simply replies “Mary”

Joining Henson on the cast are Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Danny Glover.

The poster can be viewed below as well as the trailer.
