Jessica Alba Wants To Prove Women Can Handle Action Movies With ’Trigger Warning’

The actress talks of her new action movie on Netflix.

Jessica Alba recently appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to talk about Netflix’s ‘Trigger Warning.’

The actress noted her love for action films and doing stunts during the interview. She also mentioned her new film’s significance for women in the genre:

“The producers that did ‘John Wick’ and ‘Sicario,’ they did this, and I was like, ‘I want to have, like, a grounded, cool, female-driven action movie.’ So, the director was a woman, and the writer who did ‘The Last Pass’ was a woman. The producers were women. The DP is a woman. Set deck women. And so, we had a lot of heads of departments in the genre that’s pretty dominated by men.”

Alba added:

“The most badass people I know are women. I mean, we, like, give birth. So, I was like, ‘Why can’t we sit here and, like, do this genre?’”

The Actress Plays A Strong Woman In The Film

Jessica Alba’s newly-founded Lady Spitfire company produced Netflix’s upcoming project along with Santa Monica, and California-based Thunder Road Films.

Alba explained the action film’s plot by saying it focused on her character, Parker, as she went back home following her father’s death. She noted:

“And it doesn’t smell right. Things are just not really adding up. And she is a Special Forces commando. She was in active duty when she got pulled out of it.”

‘Trigger Warning’ premieres on June 21 and stars Anthony Michael Hall as Senator Ezekiel Swann opposite Alba.
