‘Kate’ Trailer: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Has Less Than 24 Hrs to Kick Ass in Brutal Netflix Actioner


Mary Elizabeth Winstead looks to be kicking serious ass in Kate, the Netflix action film set to rock screens in September.

The official trailer has arrived for the film, which has Winstead playing a ruthless criminal operative who discovers she has less than 24 hours left to live after being poisoned. With a severe time limit on her hands, Kate embarks on a mission of vengeance. In the process, she forms an unexpected bond with Ani (Miku Martineau), the daughter of one of her past victims.

Woody Harrelson, Tadanobu Asano and Michiel Huisman are among the co-stars of Kate, which hails from director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and screenwriter Umair Aleem (who penned Extraction – the 2015 Bruce Willis one; not the 2020 Chris Hemsworth one).

It sure looks like a solid one for action buffs. Winstead has herself what appears to be a fun and brutal vehicle – and one that just may kick off a franchise? You just know Netflix is eyeing the potential. Providing further promise a strong actioner is having David Leitch (uncredited John Wick co-director and director of Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw) on board as producer, along with renowned fight and stunt coordinator Jonathan Eusebio (Avengers, John Wick movies, Black Panther, The Matrix 4).

Kate will be streaming on Netflix from September 10th. In the US, the film will also be in limited cinemas from the same day, which could be a promising sign of confidence from Netflix.

Here’s Netflix’s official synopsis for Kate:

Meticulous and preternaturally skilled, Kate is the perfect specimen of a finely tuned assassin at the height of her game. But when she uncharacteristically blows an assignment targeting a member of the yakuza in Tokyo, she quickly discovers she’s been poisoned, a brutally slow execution that gives her less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her killers. As her body swiftly deteriorates, Kate forms an unlikely bond with the teenage daughter of one of her past victims. Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Woody Harrelson, and directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, Kate follows a burned assassin’s furious pursuit of one last self-appointed job.
