An absolute flurry of TV trailers have been cut from Marvel’s Black Panther film, but most have centered around Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa, who moonlights as the catsuited hero. Its latest, entitled “Entourage,” is nothing like the HBO series of the same name, because its focus is on its women.

The supporting cast of Wakanda is full of heavy hitters, with Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, and Danai Gurira with exciting characters whose action we simply haven’t gotten to see. Until now.

Take a look:

Nakia (Nyong’o) shows off her armor and blades while Okoye (Gurira) kills a car with a spear (while wearing a hell of a dress) after sighing, “Guns … so primitive.” Shuri (Wright) sure gets a kick out of it.

The futuristic weaponry and vehicles get plenty of screen time as we watch a handful of superwomen wreak havoc on the world around them, all building up to Black Panther’s highly anticipated (and record-breakingly pre-sold) February 16 release.
