Sky Cinema just announced the release of their new action movie, Gunpowder Milkshake, and it's giving us *major* strong independent woman vibes. The film features an all-female lead, including Karen Gillan and Lena Headey, and looks packed with edge-of-your-seat action.

Here's everything we know about the film so far.

What is Gunpowder Milkshake about?

The official movie synopsis says: "Gunpowder Milkshake tells the story of Sam, who was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet, 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. With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians."
