Golden Globe winner Taraji P. Henson is giving us a different vibe in her next film. We’ve seen her play a mom on the Fox series ‘Empire’ and a mathematician in ‘Hidden Figures’. For this next film, we watch her suit up and strap up as a hit woman. ‘Proud Mary‘ brings Henson to the screen as a professional killer for an organized crime family in Boston.
While Henson aka Mary is in her kill-zone for most of the movie, she seems to take a turn for the better when she meets a kid during a hit gone bad. Instead of wanting to pursue her hit-woman ways, she tries to curb her kills and live civil. Watching Henson in bad-girl mode is pretty cool. We do get a glimpse of this behavior in Empire but she goes full throttle for Proud Mary. She plays the role alongside the likes of Danny Glover, Billy Brown, and Jahi Di’Allo Winston. This Sony film isn’t set to hit the theaters until January 12, 2018 but press play on the trailer above and let us know what you think.
