Taraji P. Henson is kicking butt and taking names in the newly released trailer for her upcoming film “Proud Mary.” It literally debuted a little over an hour ago and is spreading like wild fire.

As previously reported, the film stars the “Empire” actress as a hit woman whose life is turned completely around when she meets a young boy who awakens in her a maternal instinct she never knew she had.  It also stars Danny GloverMargaret Avery, Billy Brown, Neal McDonough, Xander Berkeley and “The New Edition Story” star Jahi Di’Allo Winston.

The film is directed by Babak Najafi with a script penned by John Stuart Newman and Christian Swegal. Henson also serves as one of the film’s executive producers.
