If you have DirecTV, you may have already seen the action thriller Barely Lethal, which debuted exclusively on the cable service April 30. For everyone else, the movie hits theaters on May 29. To celebrate, we have a new poster and an exciting clip that showcases stars Hailee Steinfeld and Samuel L. Jackson.
In Barely Lethal, Megan Walsh (Hailee Steinfeld) is a teenage special ops agent who yearns for a normal adolescence. After faking her own death she assumes the role of an exchange student and quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of a typical American high school can be even more difficult than international espionage. Will she continue to live as an all-American teenager? Or will she return to a life that is less alien and more comforting, even though it is far more deadly?
This second clip sets up the somewhat contentious relationship between Megan and her special ops trainer Hardman, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Hardman has been training Walsh from a very young age, and he sees something special in the girl. So you can understand his anger when she decides to flee. But her seemingly ideal alternative lifestyle may have her returning to a much more violent past quicker than she thinks. Check out the latest footage, along with the new neon pink poster that proudly proclaims, 'Click. Clique. Bang!'
