About the Film
The film promises a gut-punch of a ride including taut performances, frighteningly adept action choreography and catastrophic stakes.
The film will star Elsa Pataky who is popular for her role in the film series, Fast and Furious. Elsa will be playing the role of JJ Collins, an Army Caption of the United States of America and has been assigned the role of a commander at a remote nuclear missile interceptor station.
The role of terrorist is played by Luke Bracey, the G.I Joe: Retaliation, Hacksaw Ridge star. Luke is playing the role of Alexander who is a team leader for a group of terrorists and does the role of swarming the interceptor station. Here is where the two meet and Collins put her years of tactical military training to her advantage to act as the last line of defence between nuclear destruction and the safety of the United States.

Interceptor will mark the directional debut of Matthew Reilly, an action thriller author who originated the characters of jack West Jr. and Shane Schofield who starred in the series of novels about them written by Reilly.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

The Official Synopsis
The official synopsis of the film states that the character of Pataky the “tough and reality-bruised Captain Collins 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.”
“You planned for every possible outcome… but you couldn’t plan for me.”
