I’ve never been a big Angelina Jolie fan, but I will admit that when she does action flicks like “Wanted” “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” or “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” she’s great. So when I saw yesterday afternoon that she had a new movie trailer, I was kinda “meh.” However the title, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” intrigued me, so I clicked “play.” And wow, am I glad I did.
The movie is based on a novel of the same name and is officially described as “a female-driven neo-Western set against a wildfire in the Montana wilderness. A teenage murder witness finds himself pursued by twin assassins in the Montana wilderness with a survival expert tasked with protecting him and a forest fire threatening to consume them all.” All I know is it has fire, guns, car crashes, and lots of other stuff I dig. “Those Who Wish Me Dead” will be out May 14th in theaters and on HBO Max.
