“ John Wick ” was released in cinemas around the world in 2014 and in the eight years since has not only received two sequels (a third is coming in 2023), it has also transformed Hollywood action cinema forever. You can also see that in the fact that the «John Wick» style — hand-made action in which the stars are replaced by stunt people as little as possible — is now becoming more and more popular. A recent example of this: “ The Princess ”.
In «The Princess,» the eponymous princess (played by «Kissing Booth» star Joey King ) is about to be married against her will to an evil ruler ( Dominic Cooper ) to whom she is betrothed, but steadfastly refuses. Nor can she be forced into marriage by being kidnapped and locked in a lonely tower. Rather, this is their chance to escape:
When two sinister fellows enter her cell, the princess breaks free, beats up the gunmen and then fights her way through the entire tower to escape and free her family from the clutches of her fiancé…
«The Princess» will start on July 1, 2022 on the US streaming service Hulu. Nothing is known about a German date. However, Hulu originals in Germany mostly appear on the Disney+ streaming service, which also belongs to Disney. So it wouldn’t surprise us if you can watch The Princess on Disney Plus starting July 1st.

“The Princess” is directed by Vietnamese director Le-Van Kiet , whose best-known film, the action thriller “ Furie ”, can be streamed on Netflix and who has now made his second English-language film after the lousy shark horror film “ The Requin ”. Has.
In any case, the trailer promises a much better movie, which not only comes up with an unusually powerful princess as the main character, but in which, according to the trailer, Joey King also performed most of the stunts himself.
The experience from her previous film may have been useful for her: King will also be seen in the action hit » Bullet Train » in 2022 alongside stars like Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Bullet Train was directed — and here we come full circle — by none other than John Wick co-director David Leitch .
«Bullet Train» will start in German cinemas on August 4, 2022.
