It has been three years since MMA star Gina Carano stepped out of the ring and kicked ass on the big screen, with her first leading role in Steven Soderbergh‘s “Haywire.” Since then, she hasn’t rushed into the movie biz, only banking a role in “Fast & Furious 6” in the interim. But now she’s back as the leading lady with “In The Blood” and the first trailer is here.
Co-starring Luis Guzman, Danny Trejo and Stephen Lang, the film follows Ava, a newlywed whose husband disappears while they are on their honeymoon in the Caribbean. Little did they know the bride was Gina Carano. As you might expect, the grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men she believes kidnapped and killed him, uncovering a conspiracy along the way. Basically, your standard genre stuff which is mostly a format to allow Carano to lay waste to a variety of bad guys, which she’ll do here.
Watch below. “In The Blood” opens in limited release on April 4th.
