Karen Gillan is an assassin on a mission in a new trailer teaser for Gunpowder Milkshake. Gillan first came to the attention of mainstream audiences thanks to her role as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. In 2017, the actress joined another big franchise when she co-starred with Dwayne Johnson in the smash hit reboot movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Those two action-heavy franchises certainly showed Gillan’s ability to take on physically demanding roles. In Gunpowder Milkshake, Gillan plays another kind of action heroine, taking on the role of a female assassin. The upcoming Netflix movie also stars Angela Bassett, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh and Paul Giamatti.

Few specifics have been revealed thus far about the plot of Gunpowder Milkshake. But more should become clear when the movie’s first trailer finally arrives. As revealed in Gillan’s own Twitter post, that trailer will be along next Tuesday. The teaser video featured in the post also gives fans their first good look at Gillan’s character while giving some hints about the movie’s plot. See the clip in the space below:

A previously released Gunpowder Milkshake plot synopsis reads, “A secret sisterhood of female assassins, over the course of a single night, fight to stop a cycle of violence while coming to the aid of a mother-daughter assassin duo.” That description is vague to be sure, but the new teaser does fill in a few important details. Firstly, it reveals the existence of an organization called “The Firm,” which seems reminiscent of the High Table from the John Wick universe. Giamatti’s character is clearly an important figure in The Firm, if he’s not the outright leader. Gillan’s character then is a decidedly John Wick-like character who is brought in to “clean up” when things go awry. But Gillan is clearly over The Firm, and it appears she and her fellow assassins Headey, Bassett, Gugino and Yeoh are ready to team up and take down the organization.

John Wick is the obvious first thing that comes to mind when viewing the teaser, though Kill Bill and Atomic Blonde are recalled as well. Judging by this new glimpse at Gunpowder Milkshake and particularly Gillan’s character, it seems the actress is ready to join Keanu Reeves, Uma Thurman and Charlize Theron as one of the movie world’s biggest action heroes. But don’t forget about Bassett, Headey, Gugino and Yeoh, all of whom have established their own action movie credentials over the years. Yeoh especially qualifies as an action movie icon thanks to her work in Hong Kong films in the 1990s as well as later works. Gunpowder Milkshake should give its female cast a great showcase for their various skills as they take on Giamatti and the evil Firm.
