Andromache of Scythia

Andromache and her comrades confront existential crises outside of Marrakesh, Morocco.


Andromache of Schythia, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Charlize Theron“I’ve been here before… over and over again, and each time the same question.  Is this it?  Will this time be the one?  And each time the same answer.  And I’m just so tired of it.” — Andromache of Scythia

“Yeah.  I did.  And I got you something.  Mmm-hmm.  It wasn’t.  So why am I here, Booker?  CIA.  No, Booker.  We don’t do repeats.  You know that.  It’s too risky.  Joe and Nicky?  Would you like me to take one for you?  There you go.  Mmm!  You look okay.  Nicky!  Mmm!  Baklava.  No.  Really?  Mmm!  Hazelnut, not walnut.  The Black Sea.  Rosewater.  Pomegranate.  Mmm!  Eastern Turkey.  I did.  Some good means nothing.  I don’t know about this, guys.  We’re not helping.  I’ll hear him out.  Last time I checked, you had to an American to be in the CIA.  So why did you leave the agency, Mr. Copley?  Sorry for your loss.  That means they’re moving them soon.  We’ll invoice you when it’s done.  Motherfuck– everyone still with me?  Joe?  There never were any girls.  We’ve been set up.  I knew this was gonna happen.  I said it.  And what did it get us, Nicky?  What?  Nothing.  We’ve done nothing.  The world isn’t getting better.  It’s getting worse.  They know who we are.  They know what we are.  We have to find Copley.  We have to tie this thing off.  And then nothing.  The world can burn for all I care.  I’m done.” — Andromache of Scythia

“What the… no.  No, not another one.  Not now.  She’s a Marine.  Combat.  Or near-combat duty.  Afghanistan.  It’s been over 200 years.  Why now?  I’ll handle the retrieval.  If we’re dreaming about her, she’s dreaming about us.  That makes her a beacon straight to us.  Get to France.  Use the Charlie safe house.  I’ll meet you there.  Find Copley.  Jesus.  She’s just a baby.” — Andromache of Scythia

“Andromache the Schythian.  But you can call me Andy.  Why does it have to be so goddamn slow the first couple of times?  I did.  I need you to get back in the car, please.  You haven’t figured this out yet?  You can’t die.  Get up.  Argh!  Fuck!  Can you please not do that again?  I lead a group of immortals.  An army, I guess.  Soldiers.  Fighters like you.  Look… you’ve got questions, kid.  I get it.  You want answers?  Get back in the car.” — Andromache of Scythia

“Put those on.  Paris.  You’ve got blood in your hair.  Well, sometimes you gotta work with people you don’t wanna eat with.  Does it really matter?  You found Copley?  Keep looking.  He’s doing the same to us.  I have the new one.  Well, she stabbed me, so I think she has potential.  I wish I knew.  I didn’t say you’d like them.  Are you praying?  God doesn’t exist.  You know, there was a time when I was worshiped as a god.  Was that Him?  Don’t worry, I can’t do shit like that.  None of it means anything anyway.  Four.  No.  This is some bullshit.  And I was the one who cut your throat.  Right?  Listen, kid.  You already believe in… you should just keep following that illogic.  You’re already on board with the supernatural.  If I were you, I’d get some sleep.” — Andromache of Scythia

“Andrei.  Come here.  Stand up!  Trust me.  She’s not gonna shoot you.  I am.  We don’t need a pilot.  We can jump and survive.  Whoa!  Shit!  Maybe we do need a pilot.  I can fly a plane.  You don’t speak Russian do you?  Because I told the pilot to play dead.  You really want to do this, kid?  We’re done.  I said we’re done.  You’re very good.  What’s your name?  You see?  You’re already healing faster.  You’re not a Marine anymore.  They’re going to lock you up.” — Andromache of Scythia

“We’re just outside of Paris.  This is Goussainville.  This place has been abandoned for 50 years.  What he said.  Yeah.  Old.  Too old.  Nothing that lives lives forever.  I know what I said.  And we mostly are, but we can die.  And one of us did.  He… he was a warrior, just like us.  A long time ago.  One day your wounds just don’t heal up anymore, and… we don’t know when or why.  You’re too new.  You tell her that.” — Andromache of Scythia


Booker, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Matthias SchoenaertsBooker

“You good?  Yeah? You travel?  What’s that?  Ooh, first edition Don Quixote. That couldn’t have been cheap.  You remember Surabaya eight years ago, right?  Yeah.  The guy who hired us, James Copley, reached out.  He has a hostage situation in Sudan.  Andy.  At the hotel.  Family.  All right.  All in.  Here it is.  Ow!  It’s a job, guys.  I know you needed a break, but it’s been over a year, boss.  Mr. Copley.  Trust me, I have.  Yeah.  I checked him completely, and… everything seemed legit.  I’m sorry, guys.  And then what?  I saw… I saw part of a name tag.  Yeah.  And a medevac.  I felt her die.  No, we stick to the plan.  We find Copley.  No, we’re in the open.  We’re the ones who are exposed now.  Nicky– hey, boss, come on.  What do we do in the meantime?” — Booker

“Hey, boss.  Nothing but dead ends.  He knows we’re hunting him.  And?  I’ll see you soon.  No, more like misery loves company.  Yeah, I died fighting with Napoleon.  That’s not gonna help her.” — Booker


Joe, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Marwan KenzariJoe

“You look great.  Thank you!  Thank you!  All in!  No, no, no.  Don’t worry.  Admit it, boss.  You missed us.  I know you needed a break, but it’s been over a year, boss.  Very pissed off.  Those shoes were a particularly grotesque touch.  I saw an older woman in a Hijab.  What did you see?  Uh, yeah.  Free… free something.  Yeah, so maybe a, uh… a coalition… medical team.  We have to find her.  So we just leave her out in the open?” — Joe

“Depends on the century.  We dream of each other.  They stop when we meet.  Mmm… Nicky and I met in the Crusades.  We… we killed each other.  Yeah.  Come with me.  I’ll show you.  She wants to talk to her family.” — Joe


Nicky, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Luca MarinelliNicky

“And I have something for you.  Five hundred, Booker.  All in! We can do some good.  This is what we do, Andy.  Peace be with you.  Are we too late?  So where are the girls?  One has to admire Mr. Copley’s attention to detail.  We did it right, Andy.  For the right reasons.  It was a woman.  A black woman.  Dirt floor, clay walls.  The knife was a pesh-kabz.  Pashtun.  Everything happens for a reason, boss.  Not like her.  Not like her.  You can’t tell me you don’t remember what it was like.  Whoever she is, she’s confused, and she’s scared, and she’s more alone than she has ever been in her entire life.  We all remember what it was like.  She needs us.” — Nicky

“We fight for what we think is right.  I believe it’s because we… we’re meant to find each other.  It’s like destiny.  It used to take years to track a new one.  Booker was the last.  1812.  The love of my life was of the people I’ve been taught to hate.  Many times.  It is a lot to understand.  I think you should get some rest.” — Nicky


Copley, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Chiwetel EjioforCopley

“Mr. Booker, bonjour.  It’s a pleasure to finally meet you.  I was born in Boston.  Moved to London when I was three.  My wife got sick.  ALS.  She died two years ago.  Just haven’t found my way back yet.  Thank you.  You haven’t aged a day, Booker.  Yeah.  Yesterday afternoon local, a school southwest of Juba was attacked by a militia.  They murdered the teachers and abducted 17 of the students at gunpoint.  The youngest was eight… oldest, 13.  South Sudanese asked the US for help, but current administration’s policy is to deny aid to any nonstrategic allies.  Some of my ex-colleagues at the CIA feel differently.  They reached out to me, and I’m reaching out to you.  The last overfly confirmed the personnel on site.  No food or water being brought in.  And when they do, most likely they’ll be separated, and odds are we’ll never find them again.  Has to be done quickly… by the best, and your team’s the best I’ve ever seen.  You can name your price.  Yeah, I got it.  Yeah.” — Copley

“You’ve seen my research.  Now you know they’re for real.  Recovering an uncontaminated sample of the site proved impossible.  There was an unanticipated amount of carnage.  But the footage– I think I can get you one.  These are extraordinary individuals.  They are extremely resistant to capture.” — Copley


Nile Freeman, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, KiKi LayneNile Freeman

“Hmm?  Here, Sergeant.  Roger that.  Keep it respectful.  Never hurts to repeat it.  My name is Nile.  I am an American Marine.  We are looking for this man.  He has killed many of our people and many of yours.  Have any of you seen him?  You do not disrespect your family by telling us where he is.  Thank you for allowing us into your home.  We will leave you in peace.  Breach!  Stop!  Clear!  Covering!  Lima 3, this is India 5.  Contact, over.  Jay, go check on the women.  Not if he bleeds out.  The wanted him alive, remember?  I’m trying to save you, man.  Dizzy, a little help, please?” — Nile

“What’s up, Jay?  What’s up, Dizzy?  Yeah, they, uh… they used this new skin graft or something.  Yeah.  That’s what they said.  Aye, Sergeant.  But I’m fine.  Sergeant– who are you?  You shot me.  This isn’t real.  No, none of this is real.  Who are you?” — Nile

“Where are you taking me?  Wonder why?  This guy’s a drug runner.  This the shit you into?  Is this even safe?  So why is this happening to me?  You said you had answers.  My God does.  You said there were others.  How many?  You’re an army of four?  So that’s you took me?  So I could join your army?  No.  This is some bullshit.  You must… …must have hypnotized me, or… or, uh, drugged me or something.  And that was a blank that you shot me with.” — Nile

“We’re not going to Paris.  Sit your ass down.  You do not listen to her.  You listen to me.  Land this plane.  Who’s gonna fly the plane?  I am not jumping from a plane!  Why?  Nile.  Is this real?  I got people that love me.  People that are gonna worry.  I’m a Marine.  They think I went AWOL.” — Nile

“I thought you said we were going to Paris.  Why?  So are you good guys or bad guys?  How are you all in my dreams?  Why?  No way.  So… you’re even older than him.  The Crusades?  You’re the oldest.  So how old are you?  How old?  So we really never die.  But… you said that we were immortal.  So if we can die, then why would you shoot me?  You could have killed me.” — Nile


Merrick, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Harry MellingMerrick

“Our average lifespan is 78 in developed nations.  Actually, two more years if you’re lucky enough to be born a female.  What can I say, ladies?  Now, all of this is because of everyone’s favorite love-to-hate… Big Pharma.  At my company, our research on telomere extension has reversed the chromosomal clock of human stem cells.  Dr. Kozak’s manipulation of the klotho hormone will, in time, completely arrest common cognitive decline.  Yes, we can all wave goodbye to dementia.  Now… wait!  Our work will add years of life to the collective world population.  Years.  Decades.  But it’s not cheap.  We need investment.  Investment drives my enthusiasm to take risks.  These risks improve countless lives.  My God.  What about the hard proof?  Blood, tissue, bone, DNA.  But you promised me hard proof.  No, no.  The footage is a two-million-dollar snuff film.  It doesn’t give her the how.  I need all of the, Copley.  No.  No, not one.  All.  Well, consult with Keane, make a plan, make it happen.  And quickly, before my competitors get wind of this.”


Jay

“Don’t we always?  Clear!  On it.”

“A little blood can look like a lot.  Adrenaline flying, everyone was seeing shit they didn’t.  You’d rather her be sent home in a body bag?  So come on.  Hey, look who’s up.  So let’s see the trophy.  Nile, there’s not even a scratch.”

Dizzy, The Old Guard, Netflix, Denver and Delilah Productions, Dune Films, Image Comics, Marc Platt Productions, Skydance Media, Natacha KaramDizzy

“Look at all this shit.  It’s jackpot.    No!  Medic!  Man down!  No!  Jesus!  Medic!  Stay with me!  Oh, my… God!  Jesus, no.  Look at me.  You’re gonna be okay.  Nile!  Nile!  You’re okay.  It’s okay.  Stay with me.  Just look at me.  Look at me.  Okay.  Medic’s on their way.  Medic’s on their way.  No, no.  It’s okay.  It’s okay.  The medic’s coming.”

“I know I saw her die.  I was holding her neck together in my hands.  No, of course not.  Nile?  Fuck me.  That what the doctor said?”

Target 1

“Do not… do not touch me.”

Clerk

“Come back again.  Thank you.  Welcome to El Fenn, sir.  Checking in?  What brings you to Marrakesh?”

Tourist #1

“Say, ‘Marrakesh!’  Oh, thank you so much.  I just really suck at taking selfies.”

Tourists

“Marrakesh!  Thank you!”

Soldier

“Room clear!  Look out!  Reload!”

Soldier 1

“Oh, my God!”

Soldier 2

“Shit!  What the hell?”

Soldier 3

“Corporal Freeman.  Orders just came through.  They’re sending you to Landstuhl, Germany for more tests.  Plane’s fueling.  Pack your bags.  We took these off you when it happened.  Didn’t think you were coming back.”

Soldier 4

“That’s her.”

Soldier 5

“Corporal Freeman.  Been looking for you.  Wheels up on your ride.”

Marine Sergeant

“Freeman, where you at?  The women are holed up in the house with the arches.  Take a right at the building with the red carpet.  Get me some information.”

Afghanistan resident 1

“There are no men here.  To use women as shields is to be no man at all.”

“It’s not like there aren’t real Black heroes and kick-ass women in real life. Hollywood is so unrepresentative – period. Like this is led by two women and there is a woman directing this big ass action movie. It’s like wow, that’s crazy, but why is that even such a big topic of conversation? Women kick ass every day; women are in the armed forces and there are amazing female directors. Hollywood is just so slow with representing the world. So being able to play Nile, I definitely felt a deeper sense of love for this opportunity ’cause yes, I got to portray a young Black female kick-ass hero saving the day and being the leader.” Thank you @wonderland 😊 Link in bio to the full interview with @daynaxmarie and more dope ass photos from @blaircaldwell @oldguardmovie out on Netflix now 😁😁😁😁

“KiKi Layne is Breaking Down Hollywood Barriers One Exceptional Project at a Time” Thank you @whowhatwear for having me on your July cover. 😊😊😁 . . And thank you for supporting my ridiculously last minute request to change the cover photo that had already been decided on and change it to one featuring me wearing a Black brand (❤️🖤 @pyermoss) and including in my cover story a handwritten list of Black designers/brands/boutiques that we all, (this is for me as well) should support and pay more attention to. Before everything got shut down and cancelled, @waymanandmicah and I had planned to incorporate more Black designers for The Old Guard press tour. So this isn’t quite as special as slaying some carpets in these brands but it’s a place to start. And is something to help hold me accountable to representing and supporting Black Artists in Fashion like I do in Film. I know there’s more, but just to get started: @andreaiyamah @brothervellies @bruceglen @christopherjohnrogers @cushnie @demestik @fenty @fenoel @thefolklore @glemaud @gypsybyknature @hanifaofficial @heronpreston @houseofaama @weareivypark @jadeswim @karlkani @kennethize @laquan_smith @lorrainewestjewelry @lemlemofficial @shopmcmullen @omathelabel @omiwoods @pyermoss @romeohunte @samimirovintage @sergiohudson @sincerelytommy_ @slashedbytia @stellajean_sj_ @telfarglobal @tlretro @undracelestenewyork @walesbonner @yeezymafia And also @laviebyck and @imblackowned (Accidentally left off the final page I sent! 🤦🏾‍♀️) 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 And thanks @jbake21 for the great interview.

Trong truyện gốc, nhân vật "Quỳnh" vốn là người Nhật Bản, có tên Noriko. Tuy nhiên, khi Vân nhận vai, đã yêu cầu nhân vật có tên Việt Nam. 🤪☺ (Greg Rucka – đồng tác giả truyện tranh The Old Guard, tác giả kịch bản phim – nói với Polygon về ấn tượng dành cho Ngô Thanh Vân : "Khi Veronica được chọn, cô ấy nói tôi không phải người Nhật, tôi là người Việt Nam. Đạo diễn sau đó đã liên lạc với tôi và nói: ‘Chúng ta có thể thay đổi điều này không’ và tôi hoàn toàn đồng ý. Noriko trở thành Quỳnh, Quỳnh giờ là người Việt Nam. Chúng tôi tôn trọng điều đó".) Thank you❤ "Quỳnh" là nhân vật đang được khán giả kỳ vọng xuất hiện với vai trò lớn hơn ở phần tiếp theo. 👉có không ? #NgoThanhVan #TheOldGuard #quỳnh
