The theatrical summer movie season may not arrive this year, but if you have a big-ass TV and an air-conditioning in your home, you may be able to come close to replicating it with Old Guard, a Netflix sci-fi blockbuster starring Charlize Theron.

The film is about a covert team of immortal mercenaries who are suddenly exposed and must fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered. And if Charlize is not a big enough draw, Gina Prince-Bythewood — of Love and Baskeetball fame — is the director. She’s fantastic, and this trailer is exactly our shit. A little sci-fi, a little Atomic Blonde, and the villains are not all brown people.


The Old Guard, which also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, arrives in July. If Tenet doesn’t open, it may be the closest we get to a summer blockbuster in 2020.
