When she’s not executive producing $100 million movies and signing new Netflix content deals, Jennifer Lopez is kicking ass and adopting names as a retired killer with guns of steel.
Now, a new teaser released by streaming giant Netflix gives us our first look at the exciting new project for the iconic superstar, and our interest in the parent-driven thriller is at an all-time high.
On the surface, The mother looks like a fast-paced, non-stop adrenaline ride – as well as an exploration of what it means to be a mother and the maternal obligation to protect and fight for a child.
While the details are still mostly under wraps, the teaser gives us a glimpse of what to expect from Lopez’s latest creative endeavor.
What is the plot of The mother?
On the tracks of John Wick and out of stock, The mother follows an ex-assassin in hiding (Lopez) who emerges from a life of solitude in her snowy mountain retreat to protect her now vulnerable daughter, who abandoned her years ago as she tries to outsmart and outsmart a dangerous couple pursuer.
Who is playing? The mother?
Jennifer Lopez stars as the unstoppable matriarch in this action-packed thriller starring Joseph Fiennes (The story of the maid) in supporting roles and Gael García Bernal (Y Tu Mama También), Paul Raci (sound of metal) and Omari Hardwick (Army of the Dead).
Fiennes and Bernal will reportedly take on the villainous roles of the underhand men trying to take down Lopez, while Hardwick will play an FBI agent.
Niki Caro (The keeper’s wife) sits in the director’s chair. Also on the creative team is Peter Craig (The Batman) and Misha Green (Lovecraft country).
With Lopez also at the helm as producer, The mother aims to be one of the most exciting and adrenaline-pumping films of 2023. It will also be the first feature film from Lopez’s production company, Nuyorican Productions.
Is there a trailer for The mother?
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait any longer to catch a glimpse of the vengeful Jennifer Lopez; Netflix has already released a teaser as part of its global fan event Tudum.
The teaser wastes no time in showing us just how hardcore Lopez’ character will be, with plenty of screen time accorded to her powerfully ripped physique, ferocious courage, and a display of deadly weaponry and resources.
We also get glimpses of James Bond-esque parkour-style chases and dodges, seemingly spanning countries and locations as Lopez will stop at nothing to protect her daughter.
Tenacious, deadly and tough as nails, Lopez seems like a force to be reckoned with.
what was said The mother?
Not many details have been released yet, but the collaboration between Lopez and Netflix appears to be the start of a wonderful friendship, with the film being the first part of a new production deal between the two parties.
“Jennifer Lopez has been an entertainment force in every aspect of her career,” Scott Stuber, Netflix’s head of global films, said in a statement. “By partnering with her and Nuyorican, we know she will continue to bring powerful stories, joy and inspiration to audiences around the world.”
Where and when can we watch The mother?
Although there is no specific release date yet, Netflix has announced that the film will be released on the streaming platform in May 2023.
