The second semester of 2021 is looking better and better every day. You know why? Because every day we get announcements for new movies and shows we’ll get to watch. Today, we bring you the next big action movie you’ll definitely want to watch out for in August: The Protégé. But before we say anything else, check out the trailer:
By now, you probably know we love a good action-packed production. So when we heard of The Protégé, it’s safe to say we were hyped. Then we saw the cast list, and it got better! You can’t go wrong having Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, and Maggie Q as your stars, can you?
And on top of a great cast, The Protégé also has a fascinating storyline. Maggie Q’s character, Anna, was rescued as a child by Moody (Samuel L. Jackson), who raised her. But here’s the thing: he’s an assassin, and trained her to be as good, if not better than him. But, as in every action movie, the happy family never stays happy for long, right? So, when Moody is murdered, Anna is out for blood and revenge against those responsible. This leads her to Rembrandt (Michael Keaton), a mysterious man who’s really interested in her for some reason.
So far, that’s what we know about The Protégé. Well, that and the fact that it comes out on August 20, as much as we’d love to have it sooner, we’re more than willing to wait anxiously for it. We know it’ll be worth it.
