Peppermint Trailer Starring Jennifer Garner: A Revenge Thriller from the Director of Taken


This year’s unexpected flood of revenge movies continues in a couple of months with the upcoming action thriller Peppermint starring Jennifer Garner. Directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, District B13) from a script by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen), the movie stars Garner as a woman who is let down by the justice system when her husband and daughter are killed by some connected criminals. She eventually takes matters into her own hands, training herself to dole out vengeance while remaining undetected by law enforcement. There isn’t a whole lot to set this one apart, but I guess it’s basically Death Wish from a female perspective. John Ortiz, John Gallagher, Jr. and Method Man co-star. Peppermint hits theatres on Sept. 7th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Ummm looks more direct to VOD cause I don’t see this movie gaining much traction in the theaters. Plus JG isn’t much of a star these days or was she ever outside of Alias?

    This buoys my theory that Hollywood is simply keeping actors working – regardless of the quality of the project. Quantity over quality.

    I imagine there’s stipulations in their contracts that they have to be put into something within a certain time period otherwise they are released from that contract,
    Similar to screenplays where if movie studios don’t develop it within a year or so they revert back to the author.

    i mean, she was in acclaimed movies like “juno” or “dallas buyers club”, but lately her career has gone awry, and she only stars in VOD trash and christian garbage.
