And here is some more info:
Taraji P. Henson gets dressed to kill in the first trailer for Proud Mary, director Babak Najafi’s action movie with the Empire Golden Globe winner playing a hitwoman working for an organized crime family in Boston.
Set to the tune of — what else? — “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner (her solo version, sans Ike), the trailer has Henson suiting up in leather and heels, with a visit to a secret weapons closet that could make James Bond envious — all for what seems to be an action-packed and bullet-flying day of work.
Per the film’s logline, Mary’s life “is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.”
The cast for the Sony Pictures Entertainment film also includes Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Danny Glover. Najafi directs from a screenplay by John Stuart Newman & Christian Swegal and Steven Antin, based on a story by Newman & Swegal. Producers are Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan.
“Proud Mary” hits theaters at the 12th of Jan. 2018.
The trailer looks great, right?

Bob Gruen about Tina Turner:
“The first time I saw Tina Turner I remember the experience. She was amazing,” Gruen says about a 1970 show. “They (Ike and Tina) were opening for Sam and Dave. She danced off the stage with a strobe light flashing and I spent the rest of the night kind of looking at the curtain where she disappeared behind it. I think Sam and Dave came on and did an act, but I was just mesmerized by Tina.”
