There was a time when you could count the big blockbuster action films with women on one hand. In a jaw-dropping reflection on how things are changing in Hollywood, now you probably need to use both hands – and in fact, we are so advanced that women can now lay claim to an extremely problematic, culturally fetishistic shoot-em – on their own .

Yes, on September 10th, Netflix will release Kate, in which Scott Pilgrim vs. Mary Elizabeth Winstead from the world is an assassin who is poisoned during her last mission (when else?) And only has a few hours to hunt down her killers before it comes up and dies (this is one of those special movie poisons that apparently leaves you with no ill effects until it kills you). It looks incredibly cool – Winstead, an actress I adore, seems to have had a fondness for the action genre – or would if the trailer for the Japan-set flick wasn’t peppered with the kind of orientalism that an- racism that I thought we had left behind in the early 1990s when Japanese businessmen stopped being treated in every film as an acronym for a threat to American domination.

By Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, Kate, the director of the second film Snow White and the Huntsman, looks like a frenetic cross between John Wick and Crank and is at least as entertaining as the recent Netflix assassin film Gunpowder Milkshake, but it’s a real warning sign if your movie’s villain is is mentioned simply as “the yakuza”, the trusted East Asian boogeyman in films for western audiences. Maybe the end result doesn’t reduce an entire country to a series of tropes, I don’t know. Given the director calls it his “love letter to Japan”. it really could go one way or the other.

This is where everything else comes to streamer this month, including a new He-Man animated series (September 16) – a different one this time – and additional seasons of streaming favorites like Love on the Spectrum, Nailed It! and reality sensations. The circle.
