This newly cut version of the spot begins with the announcement that a body has been found and a woman was seen fleeing town: “The girl fit the description of our old friend Jane. We will question every living soul, turn over every rock, until that snake slithers out into sight. And when she does, you bring me her head.”
But as soon as we catch our first glimpse of Jane, it’s clear that she’s not a “girl,” but a dangerous woman. Maybe she’s a cunning snake, but she’s equal parts ferocious lion.
A gang wants to get rid of Jane and her husband (Noah Emmerich, “The Americans”). Jane’s willing to do anything to protect her daughter, so she gets a gun from her former flame (Joel Edgerton, “Black Mass”) and learns how to use it. When the time comes, she doesn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. At one point Jane terrifyingly warns, “You so much as flinch and I will blow your head off,” with a loaded gun pointed at someone’s face.
“Jane Got a Gun” lands in theaters January 29, 2016.
