Netflix's The Old Guard Releases Explosive New Trailer

The graphic novel adaptation will be released July 10.


Netflix has released a new trailer for its live-action adaptation of the popular graphic novel series, Old Guard. The movie will be released on the streaming platform July 10, and this trailer does a good job of both enticing existing fans and helping newcomers get up to speed: Charlize Theron stars as a warrior named Andy, the leader of a covert group of immortal mercenaries who have fought in wars for centuries--and all they have is each other.

Introducing himself to a new member of the group, one mercenary says with a smirk, "We met in the Crusades. We killed each other."

The movie chronicles the discovery and initiation of a new member into the secret, undying warrior tribe--and their being collectively forced to take up arms and fight for their freedom when it becomes clear their secret is out and they're being targeted.

Based on the comic 2017 comic of the same name written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Leandro Fernandez, the movie is written by Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. The film stars Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
