Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Charlize Theron is an undead mercenary in the first trailer for the upcoming Netflix film “The Old Guard.” Well, maybe undead is too strong a word, and we should just use immortal instead.

In Greg Rucka and artist Leandro Fernadez‘s The Old Guard graphic novels, the series follows a band of immortal mercenaries led by Andromache “Andy” of Scythia. When their immortality is discovered, they must face their greatest challenge yet. The same story will roughly be told in this Netflix film.

Theron actually injured herself on “The Old Guard,” tearing a tendon in her thumb [ouch!]. She recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the experience, and how she didn’t want to stop filming:

“I definitely cried quite a bit. Everybody kept saying, ‘This is probably serious,’ and I was like, ‘We can’t talk about that right now. We just have to keep going because what are we going to do? We have three more weeks to shoot. We’ve got to get through it.’”

Forever is harder than it looks. Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (Kiki Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (“LOVE & BASKETBALL,” “BEYOND THE LIGHTS”), “THE OLD GUARD” is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.
