‘Gunpowder Milkshake’ Trailer: Karen Gillan and Lena Headey go full John Wick and I’m here for it!

John Wick has brought upon the cinematic flesh-plane a lot of imitators and homages. Ain’t no denying that. But, the good news is this usually means gloriously choreographed violence, which I’m always down for. The latest to pay fealty to Goat Wick? Gunpowder Milkshake. I’m more than down for it, dude. Let me see Karen Gillan mirk dudes and break bones. Sold.


Navot Papushado, who was previously nominated for a Chainsaw Award for his 2010 horror film Rabies, is turning to assassins-focused action with this year’s Gunpowder Milkshake.

On Tuesday, a new trailer for the film—which hits Netflix in the U.S. and theaters nationwide this July—was released by StudioCanal. The stylized action entry stars Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Chloe Coleman, Angela Bassett, Paul Giamatti, Michelle Yeoh, Carla Gugino, and more.

In an interview last year with A Book Of, Coleman—who plays the adopted daughter of Gillan’s character—explained that the film’s plot focused on a multigenerational team of assassins.

“Gunpowder is a completely feminine-based film focusing on this three generation of assassins, and my character Emily is the third who sort of changes their ways and it’s sort of a symbol to the anti-violence,” Coleman said. “It has an amazing cast.”
