It’s like John Wick but with Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the leading role. What more do you want?
She plays the role of Kate in Netflix’s Kate, a ruthless assassin who’s been irreversibly poisoned with less than 24 hours to live and goes on a manhunt through the streets of Tokyo to exact revenge on her enemies and forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her previous targets.
Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate alongside Woody Harrelson, Tadanobu Asano, Miyavi, Jun Kunimura, Michiel Huisman, and introducing Miku Martineau, Kate premieres on 10 September 2021.
The synopsis reads:
Meticulous and preternaturally skilled, Kate is the perfect specimen of a finely tuned assassin at the height of her game.
But when she uncharacteristically blows an assignment targeting a member of the yakuza in Tokyo, she quickly discovers she’s been poisoned, a brutally slow execution that gives her less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her killers.
As her body swiftly deteriorates, Kate forms an unlikely bond with the teenage daughter of one of her past victims.
Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Woody Harrelson, and directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, Kate follows a burned assassin’s furious pursuit of one last self-appointed job.
