The first trailer and poster for John Stockwell’s In the Blood, starring Gina Carano, are now available for you to enjoy. The actioner finds Carano’s character on a violent path to track down the people responsible for kidnapping her husband during a tropical vacation. The interesting thing about this first look at In the Blood isn’t so much the plot (we’ve seen similar stories in decades of male-fronted action films), but the fact that the gender roles have been inverted. You can see for yourself after the jump, but Carano isn’t just playing the action star – she’s the real deal.
Also starring Cam Gigandet, Luis Guzmán, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordoba, Treat Williams, Stephen Lang, and Danny Trejo, In the Blood opens April 4th. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer and poster.
A while back, we talked to Carano about In the Blood during her press rounds for Fast & Furious 6. She was understandably excited for people to see it and said she “really felt like [she] tapped into something good there.” Now’s your chance to check it out for yourself. Watch the first trailer for In the Blood, followed by the film’s synopsis and poster below:
Gina Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter with a dark past. When her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise. Armed with a deadly set of skills, Ava sets out to discover the truth — and to take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, one by one.
