Watch Jennifer Lopez in the first official trailer for Netflix action-thriller ‘The Mother’

Netflix has released the first official trailer for The Mother, Jennifer Lopez‘s upcoming action-thriller – you can watch it above.

Directed by Niki Caro (Mulan), the film stars Lopez as an assassin who will do anything to protect her daughter, having been forced to give her up at birth.

“I’m a killer. And I’m also a mother,” says Lopez’s character in the action-packed trailer, which sees her headbutt, stab and shoot a variety of bad guys who threaten both her and her daughter.

A synopsis of the film reads: “A deadly female assassin comes out of hiding to protect the daughter that she gave up years before, while on the run from dangerous men.”

The trailer opens with Lopez in a flashback giving birth to her daughter. An FBI agent then tells her that the only way to protect her newborn from two dangerous enemies is to disappear.

“They’ll find you. Both of you,” Lopez is warned.

12 years later, Lopez’s character is forced into action after her daughter (played by Lucy Paez) is kidnapped. We later see the pair teaming up in the Alaskan wilderness to take on the numerous threats that present themselves.

The Mother, which also stars Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci and Gael Garcia Bernal, will be available to stream on Netflix from May 12.
