Lena Headey and Karen Gillan assassin film Gunpowder Milkshake finally gets its UK release date, September 17th.

We finally have our UK release date for Gunpowder Milkshake, the film will be hitting cinemas and Sky Cinema this September in a dual release across the UK and Ireland. It’s an unfortunately large gap between the US Netflix release date in July, so be sure to avoid spoilers over the coming months while we wait for its big screen debut.

Gunpowder Milkshake boasts an all-star cast including Karen Gillan (Avengers: Endgame), Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones), Carla Gugino (The Haunting Of Hill House) Chloe Coleman (My Spy), Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians), Angela Bassett (Black Panther) and Paul Giamatti (San Andreas).

The film tells the story of Sam (Gillan), who was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Headey), an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal.

But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl – Emily (Coleman). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians (Bassett, Yeoh and Gugino).

These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.

Directed and co-written by Navot Papushado(Big Bad Wolves) and produced by The Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman (Unknown, Non-StopThe Commuter and Come Play), the film is the must-see action-packed thriller for this Autumn. We posted the latest trialer a few weeks back, in case you need a reminder of how awesome it looks.

Gunpowder Milkshake will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema from 17 September. The film will also be available on streaming service NOW via the Sky Cinema Pass.
