THE MOVIE THAT WILL RESET THE ACTION GENRE
Written by Pate Narawa on October 9, 2021
Is Jessica Chastain the new go-to female lead for action movies?
Seems like it as her last movie Ava was also an action flick. In The 355 she is joined by other women not afraid to get their hands dirty in a scrap.
Here’s a synopsis of the film:
When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Fan Bingbing), who is tracking their every move.
The 355 is set for a January 7, 2022 release.
