"So, SO excited for this! What a kick ass way to start 2022," added another.

Penelope stars as Colombian psychologist Graciela

Her character Mace teams up with German agent Marie (Diane Kruger), British tech expert Khadijah (Lupita Nyong'o), Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penelope), and Chinese agent Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan) in the film while Edgar Ramirez and Sebastian Stan also star.

"I was seeing all these films with male action ensembles, but I’d never really seen a female action ensemble that took itself seriously [and] didn’t make it silly that girls were actually good at the job," Jessica shared in 2020.

"My experience on making Zero Dark Thirty, I discovered how many women are in espionage and how often they’re utilized. It kind of started from there, and I just went with a wish list of who I thought were the best actresses working today."
