Gunpowder Milkshake (2021) -- S: Gillan, Bassett, Headey, Gugino, Yeoh, Giamatti

After a slow start, the European Film Market is picking up pace as it enters the final stretch, with a series of big deals suggesting the upward trend seen at AFM and Sundance will continue in Berlin.

STXfilms closed one of the market's biggest pre-buys, taking rights in North America, Latin America and China for a reported eight-figure sum for the star-studded action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake, inking a deal with Studiocanal and UTA Independent Film Group.

Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Paul Giamatti, Carla Gugino and Chloe Coleman star in the film about three generations of female assassins who, over the course of a single night, fight to stop a cycle of violence. Studiocanal has already pre-sold the rest of the world. STX took the film following a promo screening in Berlin.

Studiocanal's Anna Marsh, Anne Cherel and Sophie Leuthreau negotiated the deal with STX's Jordan Lichtman and Carolyn Steinmetz and UTA Independent Film Group.

Navot Papushado directs and co-wrote Gunpowder Millshake with Ehud Lavski. The film marks Papushado's English-language debut as a director following his Israeli breakout film Big Bad Wolves.

Studiocanal financed Gunpowder Milkshake, which Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman's the Picture Company produced. The pair are international action specialists with credits that include Liam Neeson starrers The Commuter and Non-Stop.

STX is thought to be planning a wide theatrical release for the film in the U.S. and will go through the company's existing partners in Canada and Latin America and through a partner distributor in China.

Even though Papushado Co-Directed & Co-Wrote Big Bad Wolves (2013) with Aharon Keshales, if this film is even half as good at that one, I'll check it out.

Sold to Netflix and a sequel in development:
EXCLUSIVE: In competitive bidding, Netflix closed a deal to acquire U.S. rights to Gunpowder Milkshakefrom STX Films. The female-driven action film is directed by Navot Papushado, and produced by Studiocanal and The Picture Company. Studiocanal fully financed and will retain the international rights where they plan to distribute the film in their home territories with a planned international theatrical roll out around the world. I’ve confirmed that a sequel is already in early development.

As part of a substantial 8-figure deal, STX retains Canada, Latin America, and Chinese distribution rights. Studiocanal will release in the UK, France, Germany, AUZ/NZ. The film sold out worldwide.

Where does Netflix get all of this money? To my knowledge, the company has yet to actually turn a profit but has mountains of debt. Financials aside, when will this start to stream?

Sam (Karen Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Lena 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 (Chloe Coleman). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians (Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh and Carla 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.

looks amazing! that movie is going to fucking rock. i'm calling it now. hearing Nebula, sounding like Nebula (Gillan) was a little jarring, but Lena looks badass and this is going to be good, i have a feeling...

One thing I do like about Netflix's movie approach is that they don't release a trailer until the movie is just a little over a month away. That way you don't have too much wait time. What little I've seen reminds me a lot of Kingsman.

It looks like a mashup of many different stylized action movies. A little Kingman, John Wick.

From the look of the trailer, this would have been a fun flick to see at the drive-in or in theaters. But I will watch for free on Netflix.

I was expecting John Wick touches here and there but that looked like a complete John Wick ripoff.

Iíll check it out for Gillan but, based on the trailer, there doesnít seem to be an original idea in there.

JW is one man with a certain dirty, but elegant style. This is all chicks. I see similarities and sure not wholly original, but John Wick clone, nah. And who cares? JE redone with women? Why not. But, this def looks more stylized. Slo-mo. I don’t remember an slo-mo in any of the 3 JW’s. Definitely more Kingsman if anything.

I didnít call it a clone I called it a complete ripoff, which it is. Now, this is only judging it from the trailer. Itís possible the dudes who cut that trailer were purposely trying to ride the popularity of JW, or maybe the movie will turn out to be a complete ripoff.

I enjoyed the John Wick movies. More of the same isnít necessarily bad but then call it what it is, a ripoff.

I'm sure I will get to this by the weekend. Looks like a fun movie, not overly concerned about what critics say about a movie like this one.

It was decent. The cast was good and I thought the cinematography and production design were awesome. I would generally like the style the direction was going for, but this was way OVER stylized. It also needed to trim like 15 mins off the run time.

There are already plans in the works for a sequel.

really, what movie isnít a ripoff nowadays? Sad to say, but there is quite a dearth in originality in Hollywood. Sure, we get our 10 + Oscar contenders a year, but the rest, maybe 90%? though maybe highly enjoyable, ripoff of something else, Iím sure.
