STX Released the first official trailer for “Peppermint” this week, showing off the upcoming Jennifer Garner action-thriller set to release this fall. Joining Garner on the big screen are John Ortiz, John Gallagher Jr., and Juan Pablo Raba. Garner plays a young mother on the hunt for revenge when the legal system fails her. The film was directed by Pierre Morel, working from a script written by Chad St. John. Garner isn’t new to the action scene, the actor also starred in the Marvel film “Elektra,” and the TV Series “Alias”.
Garner plays Riley North (Garner), a woman who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. The studio describes the story adding, “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.”
