    Umm, Taraji P. Henson Is Playing An Assassin And I Can't Stop Screaming

    Ready the smelling salts.

    Guys, I'm not gonna waste time with too much exposition, this is too important. Basically, Taraji P. Henson is fulfilling all our fantasies and starring in a new movie, Proud Mary, as a goddamn assassin.

    Get an exclusive look at the first trailer, and make sure you're near a fainting couch.

    Henson, who's also executive producing the film, stars as Mary, a hit woman who works for an organized crime family in Boston.

    Danny Glover and Billy Brown costar.

    But her life gets turned upside down when one of her jobs goes awry and she meets a young boy (Jahi Di'Allo Winston).

    But since she's clearly the greatest assassin of all time, she can handle it. JUST LOOK AT HER.

    EFFORTLESSLY WHIP ON THAT LEATHER JACKET.

    Tragically, the film doesn't open until Jan. 12, 2018, so feel free to watch this perfect Proud Mary hair toss on repeat until then.

    CORRECTION

    Danny Glover costars in Proud Mary with Henson. The actor was misidentified in a previous version of this post.
