Viola Davis stars in the upcoming historical epic “The Woman King”. It’s a movie focused on the Dahomey Amazons, a name given to the brave and tenacious all-female military regiment who defended the West African kingdom of Dahomey during the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood whose last movie was the not-so-good “The Old Guard” for Netflix. This one looks more promising with Lashana Lynch, Thuso Mbedu and John Boyega co-starring.
In the film’s first trailer we see Davis playing General Nanisca, the ruthless leader of the Agoji warrior women. The film follows their intense training and eventually their fight to protect their kingdom from the influx of white settlers. Judging by this first look, the movie looks to be epic in scale with incredibly detailed costume design by Gersha Phillips and some intense action-fueled set pieces. How in-depth will the story be? That’s the question. But everything else looks impressive.
“The Woman King” hits theaters September 6th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
