If there's one thing we can ask for with all the hype stemming from the fanfare building since the Fantastic Fest premiere of director Joe Lynch's newest action thriller, Everly, is that we finally get to see some footage. Thankfully, an international version of the latest trailer started going viral, and if you're expecting to see actress Salma Hayek as a one-woman army singlehandedly take on the Yakuza in festive display of bullets, blades and buckets of blood, then that's exactly what you're going to get.
It’s Christmastime, but all is not well in the world of Everly (Salma Hayek). A call girl by trade, Everly has turned against her gangster boss Taiko (Hiroyuki Watanabe) and become a police informant. In response, Taiko has put out a hit on Everly and her family. Soon, every criminal in town wants to cash in. Everly’s survival instincts quickly kick in as she matches wits and firepower with Taiko and a seemingly endless stream of killers.Also starring are actors Togo Igawa and Masashi Fujimoto. The film is co-written by Yale Hannon and is produced by Adam Ripp, Rob Paris and Luke Rivett, and co-produced by Brett Hedblom, with action sequences designed by Akihiro "Yuji" Noguchi (Special Forces, Ninja, Travelers).
