Jennifer Garner is... Peppermint?
Peppermint follows the story of Riley North, whose family was murdered in a drive-by shooting. The suspects, members of a cartel, are allowed to walk free due to corrupt justice officials. Riley then spends the next several years training to take down the cartel with her own two hands... and a lot of guns.
From the Director of Taken Pierre Morel, Peppermint stars Jennifer Garner as Riley North. This is concerning for one reason: Is Jennifer Garner ready to return to action? The only real action that we've seen her in was way back in the late '90s in the hit ABC show Alias. That is, however, if you don't count Daredevil/Elektra. Which I think most people are willing to forget. Since those years, we have really only seen her in dramas, comedies, or romance movies.
However, maybe starring in an action movie is like riding a bike. You never truly forget how to do it. From the trailer, it appears she going to handle it well. To be honest, I didn't even realize it was Jennifer Garner until a solid minute into the trailer. I personally enjoy mindless, vigilante-justice action movies. Let's just hope that Garner rekindles her Alias days, and this movie has a successful opening weekend. Peppermint hits theaters September 7th this year. Watch the trailer below.
