DC Readers: Attend Tonight’s Free Early Screening Of ‘The Protege’

We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend tonight’s free early screening of The Protege, starring Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Keaton. The film is directed by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale).

Synopsis: Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly, and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves ever tighter.

The screening takes place tonight at 7:00pm at AMC Tysons Corner. If you’d like to attend, simply go to the Lionsgate ticketing site here! Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you will need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!

The Protege opens on August 20th.
