NetFlix Trigger Warning – Official first look

Trigger Warning

Special Forces commando Parker (Jessica Alba) is on active duty overseas when she gets called back to her hometown with the tragic news that her father has suddenly died. Now the owner of the family bar, Parker reconnects with her former boyfriend-turned-sheriff Jesse (Mark Webber), his hot-tempered brother Elvis (Jake Weary) and their powerful father Senator Swann (Anthony Michael Hall), as she looks to understand what actually happened to her dad.
Parker’s search for answers quickly goes south and she soon finds herself at odds with a violent gang running rampant in her hometown. Unsure of who she can truly trust, Parker draws on her commando training and proves herself a force to be reckoned with as she hunts down the truth and attempts to right what has gone wrong in Swann County, with the help of her covert ops partner and hacker Spider (Tone Bell) and connected local dealer Mike (Gabriel Basso). Directed by Mouly Surya, written by John Brancato & Josh Olson and Halley Gross, and produced by Erica Lee, Basil Iwanyk and Esther Hornstein, Trigger Warning also stars Kaiwi Lyman and Hari Dhillon.

What’s Trigger Warning about?

Alba’s leading role fulfills a longtime dream to be an action hero, just like a few of her childhood heroes. “I loved Luc Besson’s La Femme Nikita,” she says. “I also loved Ripley [in Alien], and I love Sarah Connor in Terminator.” (On Dark Angel, Alba worked with James Cameron, the man who made Ripley and Sarah Connor action icons.)

For director Surya, the story had unexpected power. “I think one of the things that attracted me is there’s loss in this film,” Surya says. “And I really connected with that grief of losing… my father a few years before.” 

Alba also connected to her character’s grief. “My grandfather passed away in the process of developing this movie,” she says. “I drew from a lot of that personal experience when I was doing the movie just because it literally just happened, and I got to actually use a lot of my family’s photos in the scenes in the bar.” It’s a family story, after all.
