Netflix released a trailer for its upcoming new action movie titled Interceptor. The story is set on a nuclear missile interceptor base in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and a young army captain that is sent there to run it. As you might expect, things take a turn for the worst shortly after she arrives.
She must “use her years of tactical training and military expertise when a coordinated terrorist attack threatens the remote missile interceptor station she is in command of in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.”
The movie looks silly and cheesy, but it also looks like it could be a good time. I’m willing to give it a shot! Here’s the synopsis:
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 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 was directed by Matthew Reilly, who is directing from a script he co-wrote with Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow When the War Began, I, Frankenstein). Pataky is joined by Luke Bracey, Aaron Glenane, Mayen Mehta, Rhys Muldoon, Belinda Jombwe, Marcus Johnson, Colin Friels, and Zoe Carides.
Interceptor will stream on Netflix starting June 3rd, 2022.
