Netflix has always been a great streaming service for discovering hidden gems and the trend looks to continue with the new action flick, “Interceptor.”
Fast and Furious star, Elsa Pataky, looks to steal some of her real life husband, Chris Hemsworth, Netflix thunder (get it…because he’s Thor…moving on..) and become their household’s biggest action star. Next, the actress will appear as the tough Captain JJ Collins in the Netflix action movie Interceptor. It’s actually a family affair, as Hemsworth will serve as an executive producer on the movie.
Releasing this June, Interceptor is directed by Matthew Reilly. Reilly also worked on the script with Stuart Beattie. Besides the Thor star, the film is also being executive produced by Christopher Mapp, Robert Slaviero, Kathy Morgan and Peter D. Graves.
The tough and reality-bruised Captain JJ Collins (Elsa Pataky) finds herself in charge of a lone nuclear missile interceptor base in the middle of the Pacific Ocean after she is wrongfully drummed out of her dream job at the Pentagon. When a simultaneous coordinated attack then threatens the base itself, Collins comes face-to-face with the charismatic yet crooked Alexander Kessel (Luke Bracey), a former US military intelligence officer intent on carrying out an unthinkable plan. With only minutes on the clock, Collins must utilize her years of tactical training and military expertise to determine who she can trust and stop Kessel and his covert mercenaries from completing their twisted and terrible mission.
Interceptor will arrive on Netflix Friday, June 3, 2022.
