With Summer Blockbuster season essentially canceled due to COVID-19, Netflix and other streaming services have dominated the entertainment landscape. The Old Guard is Netflix’s at-home summer action blockbuster for all the audiences that can’t make it to the theater.

The Netlfix original is Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (love & Basketball, Shots Fired) and stars Oscar Award winning actress Charlize Theron who also serves as a producer on the project. The crew in front of and behind the camera seems diverse and perfect for the current times.

The Old Guard follows a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), and a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die who have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka, The Old Guard is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.
