Jennifer Garner Channels Liam Neeson In Action Revenge Film ‘Peppermint’

The former Alias star returns to her action roots for her next role and she looks even more bad-ass today. Don’t mess with Jennifer Garner. Guess Ben Affleck learned that the hard way 😉

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.

The film looks like Taken meets Jennifer Lopez’s revenge thriller Enough. Makes sense given that French director Pierre Morel also worked on the Liam Neeson action film.

Peppermint arrives in theaters September 7. Check out the trailer below.
