STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment have set a September 7 domestic release date for the Jennifer Garner action-thriller Peppermint.
Directed by Pierre Morel from a script by Chad St. John, Garner portrays a mother who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system shields the murderers from justice, she sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerrilla – as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.
Peppermint also stars John Ortiz, Juan Pablo Raba, John Gallagher Jr., Annie Ilonzeh, Pell James and Richard Cabral.
STXfilms noted that Peppermint is the latest in a series of its female-led releases including the two Bad Moms films, The Edge of Seventeen, and Molly’s Game. It’s coming up with Amy Schumer’s comedy I Feel Pretty, and Shailene Woodley’s sailing drama Adrift.
