Between the “Underworld” franchise and movies like “Total Recall” and “Van Helsing,” Kate Beckinsale has been known for action in the past – though not recently.
That changes today with a trailer for “Jolt,” an R-rated “Crank”-like action vehicle for the star which also boasts a solid supporting cast including Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Jai Courtney, Bobby Cannavale, Laverne Cox and David Bradley.
Beckinsale plays a woman with a disorder causing her to experience sporadic rage-filled impulses only stoppable with a special electrode device. When she finds her lover murdered, she embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer.
Tanya Wexler (“Hysteria”) directs the film which will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on July 23rd.
