Are you ready to see Michelle Yeoh make her way through another fast-paced action project? In just a few months, we’ll be introduced to her new Netflix series The Brothers Sun, and in the series’ new teaser, she’s more powerful than ever.
Netflix released the first sneak peek footage on November 10, which reveals that the show’s tagline appears to be “Mama Knows Best,” a reference to Yeoh. The 40-second clip features plenty of cool action sequences, and even a moment where Yeoh appears to put a drill into an enemy’s body. Pretty intense stuff.
