Henson Literally Slays as a Hit Woman in the Proud Mary Trailer

The music choice is beyond on the nose, but fans of blaxploitation goddesses like Pam Grier and Tamara Dobson will still find something to get excited about in the trailer for Proud Mary.

Indeed, the Proud Mary trailer offers very little explanation, nor does it seem to demand any.

Michael Oher of 'The Blind Side' released from Panthers following concussion issues
Whether or not he can return from his concussion remains to be seen, but if he does return, it won't be with the Panthers. After leaving Baltimore, he spent a season with the Tennessee Titans before eventually landing with the Panthers.

Try to relax a bit after seeing that trailer, because we have time until its release - Proud Mary hits theaters January 12, 2018.

Everything takes a turn for the assassin when one of her hits goes terribly wrong and she crosses paths with a precocious young boy. Did you see that slide and shoot combo!? Figuratively. And then literally. There are so many little brown and black girls who will see this trailer, and, later, the actual movie, and think, "I can be just a courageous as her". It's awesome, we get to see her do it in our own backyard of Boston, and we only wish Isaac Hayes or James Brown were around to score it. There are too many Black girls, including me, who are hungry for heroes, or even antiheroes, that look like us. The award-winning actress is reportedly set to star in the new action film, Proud Mary as a sexy assassin with a ton of high-powered weapons.
