I honestly didn’t think it was possible to have a title of a film actually pelt testosterone directly at my face, but that’s exactly what’s been done here with the action flick Gunpowder Milkshake, an action thriller produced by Studiocanal and The Picture Company. Though, with that being said, it’s probably about this time that I should be checking my preconceived notions at the door, as Gunpowder Milkshake is said to feature an all-female cast in an assassin story that spans multiple generations. At the center of this story will feature Karen Gillan, THR reports.
Gillan has a pretty extensive catalog of work, but she’s likely best recognized as Nebula from the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers franchises and Martha’s avatar in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Given that she already has an action background, this looks to be right up her alley.
While the actual plot of the movie is under wraps, it is being compared to Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, with the words “stylish,” “snappy,” and “violent” being thrown around. Those are some pretty big names to be just tossing out there, but will it actually live up to it?

Leading this film are Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado. I haven’t heard of them personally, but they put out a movie called Big Bad Wolves. You can check out the trailer for that movie down below and judge for yourselves if they can put out something Tarantino-esque. Of course, it all hinges on the script, which the pair co-wrote with Ehud Lavski, but in terms of filmmaking prowess, it looks pretty solid.
