This one offers a quick new glimpse into the film with the help of a signature track from chart-topping artist Kendrick Lamar. I hear the kids think he’s quite the fine rapper. Read More »

Barely Lethal

Here’s a slightly different spin on the “deadly operative just wants to lead a simple life” trope. Kyle Newman‘s Barely Lethal stars Hailee Steinfeld as a teenager who’s been trained since childhood to be an assassin. Kind of like Hit-Girl, or Hanna, or Marvel’s Black Widows. Only she decides she wants out so she can become a high schooler instead.

As always happens in these types of movies, though, she discovers that leaving her old life behind isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. Among those on her tail are Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, and Game of ThronesSophie Turner. Watch the Barely Lethal trailer after the jump.

Update: Newman points out this Barely Lethal trailer is the Arabic version, with an official version for the U.S. market to arrive shortly.
