Gunpowder Milkshake knows girls just wanna have assassin bffs. (That’s how the saying goes, right?)

STX just released first look images at the upcoming action thriller. If you haven’t already heard about this one, you’re in for a treat. Gunpowder Milkshake boasts an incredible cast. Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Who star Karen Gillan stars alongside Game of Thrones Lena Headey. Plus, Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh, and Carla Gugino make deadly appearances as well.

Check out the first look images and a detailed description of Gunpowder Milkshake below.

Karen Gillan in Gunpowder Milkshake

Sam (Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Headey), an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal.

But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl – Emily (Chloe Coleman). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians (Bassett, Yeoh, and Gugino).

These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.

Gunpowder Milkshake has been described as Kill Bill meets Baby Driver. (I’ll throw a touch of Killing Eve into the mix as well.)

So, are you excited to watch Gillan and Headey take on assassin roles? Let us know in the comments.
