Jennifer Garner jumps back into the action genre in a new film called Peppermint. It's been a long time since we've seen Garner kick some ass, and she does a lot of it in this first trailer for the film as she embarks on a mission of revenge and justice. After her husband and daughter are murdered and she is robbed of justice due to a corrupt system, she spends five years training to unleash hell on everyone involved. Here's the synopsis:
Peppermint tells the story of young mother Riley North (Garner, Alias) who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerilla. Channeling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force – eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI- as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.
It's great to see Garner in a new action movie! The film is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, District 13), and it also stars John Ortiz (Kong: Skull Island), John Gallagher, Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane), Method Man (Keanu), Richard Cabral (Lethal Weapon) and Tyson Ritter (Preacher).
Peppermint is set to be released on September 7th. Are you excited about seeing this one?
