If John Wick and The Punisher had a baby that grew up to be a soccer mom, it would be Jennifer Garner’s character in the movie Peppermint. There’s not really much more to say about it after checking out this trailer. It’s Garner on a rampage to avenge her family after they get gunned down by a drug cartel. It doesn’t look like there’s much more to the plot than that, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun. We’ll know for sure when it hits theaters this fall.
“Peppermint” 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.
