Angelina Jolie is turning up the heat in the action-packed trailer for her new film, Those Who Wish Me Dead.
Based on Michael Koryta’s novel, the trailer offers a glimpse at the main character Hannah Faber, an expert smoke jumper who is tasked with saving people from deadly fires. However, a failed mission leaves three people dead and Faber is traumatized. Later in life, she is seemingly offered an opportunity to redeem herself when a pre-teen boy named Connor Casserly comes into her life.
While stationed at a fire tower in a remote area, Faber finds Casserly stumbling and looking for safety. It is at this point that Faber learns that Casserly witnessed his father’s death and is fearful that hitmen are coming for him as well. Chased by a team of trained hitmen, Faber seeks to protect Casserly by using what she knows best, fire.
The thrilling picture features Jolie in the role of Faber and Finn Little as Casserly. Also making an appearance, Tyler Perry appears to play the ring leader of the hitmen team. Aiden Gillen of Game of Thrones and Nicholas Hoult of X-Men appear in the film as well. Check out the thrilling trailer below before its HBO Max on May 14.
