BookMyShow Stream is all set to stream Angelina Jolie starrer They Who Wish Me Dead from June 10 in India. In the US, the film was released simultaneously in theaters and on WarnerMedia’s streaming service HBO Max.
The neo-western action thriller, co-written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, has Jolie’s Hannah, a smoke jumper (firefighters whose job it is to stop wildfires), who takes charge of a child named Connor who is hunted by deadly killers.
Sheridan previously wrote the critically acclaimed 2016 neo-western Hell or High Water. He received an Oscar nomination for the film.

Jon Bernthal plays the role of the local sheriff who becomes involved in the hunt. The film also stars Tyler Perry, Jake Weber, James Jordan and Tory Kittles.
The official synopsis of The Who Wish Me Dead reads: “Oscar winner Jolie (“Girl, Interrupted”, the movies “Maleficent”) plays Hannah, a smoke jumper still reeling from the loss of three lives she didn’t. has been able to save from a fire when she encounters a traumatized 12-year-old boy with nowhere else to turn.”
The film has received mostly positive reviews. It has a 62 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus reads, “An all-traditional 90s-style action thriller, They Who Wish Me Dead is elevated by Taylor Sheridan’s propulsive direction.”
