Blake Lively is on a path of self-destruction, in her latest flick The Rhythm Section. After a several years attempting to bring the film to the big screen, today we get the First Trailer.
Based on the novel by Mark Burnell,Lively plays Stephanie Patrick is a woman on a mission. When she learns the airplane crash her family were involved in was not an accident. Cue revenge.
The premise of the film isn’t anything original. However a few tweaks, twists and turns can make a film an intriguing prospect. Nice to see Blake Lively show her diverse range of acting skills. Plenty of emotion and gritty storytelling might help this one succeed. With James Bond’s producers also producing this (Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson), you wonder if this could be Lively’s audition to become that female 007.
Thankfully the trailer does what a trailer should do…tease.
