'Proud Mary' Trailer: Taraji P. Henson's Role as a Well-Dressed Hit Woman

Wearing red lipstick, all black, and five inch heels, Golden Globe award winner, Taraji P. Henson quickly shows us she means business in the Trailer of “Proud Mary” (directed by Babak Najafi). With an arsenal of guns concealed in a closet and an extensive wig collection, Taraji takes on the leading role as 'Mary', a bad behind hit-woman. Mary's life inevitably takes a turn after an assignment goes crooked and she crosses paths with a young boy who awakens her maternal instinct. 

In the action packed trailer, melodic tune “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner plays while Taraji makes bullets fly and sets things aflame. 

Accompanying the leading lady are castmates Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Danny Glover. We’ve seen Henson shine from “Baby Boy” to “Hidden Figures”. She has consistently proven she is worthy of being on the big screen and her hard work is paying off. It’s 2017, we’re more than ready to see a woman of color lead in an action packed film! 

“Proud Mary” is set to release January 12th, 2018. Check out the trailer to the action packed film below.
