There has been a big turn in the action genre thanks to films like John Wick. It seems now we are getting more and more that look to bring high octane action with actors that may not be always known for it. The latest, The Protégé features some veterans to the genre including Maggie Q, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson with Casino Royale and The Foreigner director Martin Campbell at the helm. 

The Protégé follows Anna, the world’s most skilled contract killer who was rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody and trained in the family business. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.

While you will have to wait until August 20th to see the film in theaters, you can check out the poster and trailer here now from Lionsgate.
