STXfilms just debuted the official full trailer for the gritty action thriller Peppermint along with releasing the film’s theatrical poster. The action drama stars Jennifer Garner as a woman out for revenge after the brutal murders of her daughter and husband. Unable to obtain justice in court, she takes matters into her own hands and trains for the day when she can exact revenge.
“Corrupt judges, dirty cops… What do I want? I want justice,” declares Jennifer Garner as Riley North in the two and a half minute trailer. Told she’s outgunned and outmanned and asked what she plans to do next, Garner’s character replies, “I will kill every one of you and then I’ll pretty much wing it from there.”
In addition to Jennifer Garner (The Tribes of Palos Verdes), the cast of Peppermint includes John Ortiz (The Cloverfield Paradox, Kong: Skull Island), John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom), and Juan Pablo Raba (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Narcos). Pierre Morel (From Paris with Love, Taken) directed from a script by Chad St. John. Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Eric Reid, and Richard Wright served as producers.
STXfilms is set to release Peppermint in theaters on September 7, 2018.
The Plot: Peppermint is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (Garner) 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.
