One of the most exciting Netflix Original releases after the summer season is, without a doubt, the action thriller Kate (2021). The movie centers on a female assassin who, after being poisoned, has 24 hours to get vengeance on her murderer before she dies. She goes on a manhunt through the streets of Tokyo. In the process, she befriends the young daughter of a past target.
This is the new movie from Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, a visual effects artist that was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Achievement in Visual Effects for Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) and already debuted as a director with The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016). Umair Aleem, the writer of the action thriller Extraction (2015), has been in charge of the screenplay.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, whose movies are always a must-see after she gained high credit in Death Proof (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), The Thing (2011), and 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), plays the title character. Another name that is synonymous with entertainment, Woody Harrelson, is the second attraction of the main cast. Miku Patricia Martineau, Tadanobu Asano, Jun Kunimura, Michiel Huisman, Miyavi, and Mari Yamamoto also star.
In October 2017, Netflix acquired Umair Aleem‘s script Kate (2021), with David Leitch, Kelly McCormick, Bryan Unkeless, and Scott Morgan producing the film. Filming commenced on September 16, 2019, and concluded on November 29, 2019. Shooting locations include Thailand, Tokyo, Japan, and Los Angeles, California.
Kate (2021) is Rated R for strong bloody violence and language throughout. Here you can watch its official trailer.
