From Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, PROUD MARY blasts on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 10. The digital is available since March 27. With Academy Award® nominee and three-time Emmy® Award nominee Taraji P. Henson as she’s never been seen before in this action-packed gritty crime thriller. Henson explodes in the title role, playing a hit woman working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses during a professional hit. Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston, Danny Glover and Neal McDonough also star in the film.
To celebrate this release, I had a chance to talk to Taraji P. Henson’s on-set stunt double Cheryl Lewis who told me everything about her career, her inspirations, working with Taraji, and more.
Let’s check it out the video interview:
The digital, Blu-ray and DVD releases of PROUD MARY include three behind-the-scene featurettes. “Mary’s World” unlocks some of the mystery behind all things “Mary,” with the cast and filmmakers weighing in on Taraji P. Henson’s kick-ass turn as the assassin nobody sees coming and shows some of the tools of her trade that let everyone know this is one woman you don’t want to accidentally cross. “The Beginning of The End” dives deep into the film’s final set piece with interviews on Mary’s signature battle to sever her ties from her former life once and for all. Lastly, not only is Mary about the best there is in the world of hit people … she looks good doing it. “If Looks Could Kill” explores Mary’s signature look and killer style, from her Maserati to the clothes and wigs that become her metaphorical armor.
