Jennifer Lopez buffs up, throws on fatigues and gets out the ammo to keep her daughter safe in the new Netflix film, “The Mother.”
“The Mother,” tells the story of a female assassin (Lopez), who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter that she gave up years before while on the run from dangerous men.
The video above shows Lopez in a remote cabin in the woods in the dead of a snowy winter. She’s building her muscles from her, prepping for the fight of her life from her. Or to be more specific, the fight for her daughter’s life.
“She needs protection right now,” she says of her daughter. And nothing will stop this Mama Bear from doing just that. She’s got the would-be kidnappers in her gun’s crosshairs and has absolutely no problem with pulling the trigger. “If there’s trouble,” she says grimly, “come find me.”

The film also stars Joseph Fiennes, Lucy Paez, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci and Gael Garcia Bernal, and will be seen on Netflix in May 2023.
“The Mother” is from an original screenplay by Misha Green, with revisions by Peter Craig. Lopez and Elaine Goldsmith Thomas are producing for Nuyorican Productions with Roy Lee and Miri Yoon for Vertigo along with Green, Benny Medina and Marc Evans. Molly Allen is executive producing.
