Kate: Release Date, Cast And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)Mary Elizabeth Winstead is on one heck of a roll right now. The immensely talented Death Proof and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World actress has since set her sights on expanding her action chops, starring in the excellent horror/thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane before adding Gemini Man, Birds of Prey, and now Kate to her résumé. Those who haven't been paying attention might think of Winstead as the heartthrob from Scott Pilgrim, but you should be plenty excited to see her in full-blown assassin mode with Kate. Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming action flick.

Kate Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

Kate is set for a global release on September 102021 and will be streaming exclusively on Netflix.

What is Kate?

Take it straight from Mary Elizabeth Winstead herself: "Kate is a ruthless assassin who is on a job in Tokyo, and she gets poisoned. She finds out she has 24 hours to live before the poison kills her, so she sets out on a mission to find out who poisoned her and kill them before she dies. Along the way, she forges this bond with this teenage girl named Ani (Miku Martineau), and they end up taking on this mission together. It's a heartfelt, brutal, assassin story!"

Kate Synopsis

After she's irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
