The tough and reality-bruised Captain JJ Collins (Elsa Pataky) 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.

With 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. Interceptor is directed by Australian writer / producer / filmmaker Matthew Reilly, making his feature directorial debut with this. The screenplay is by Matthew Reilly and Stuart Beattie. It's produced by Michael Boughen, Matthew Street, Stuart Beattie. Netflix debuts Reilly's Interceptor streaming on Netflix starting June 3rd, 2022. Who's in?
