Blake Lively stars as a woman willing to sacrifice everything in her search for the people responsible for a plane crash that killed her family in the dramatic film, The Rhythm Section. The official two-minute trailer does a great job of setting up the events that unfold during her search while also confirming The Rhythm Section‘s classification as an action thriller. There’s a lot to take in in the two-minute trailer including car chases, fistfights, gun battles, and multiple disguises sported by Lively.
In addition to Blake Lively (A Simple Favor), the cast includes two-time Oscar nominee Jude Law (Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley) and two-time Emmy Award winner Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, American Crime Story).
The film’s based on the novel by Mark Burnell. Burnell adapted his book for the screen and Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale) directed. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli produced, with Burnell, Stuart Ford, Greg Shapiro, Rob Friedman, Vaishali Mistry, Donald Tang, Simon Williams, and Gregg Wilson executive producing.
Burnell’s behind the scenes team includes director of photography Sean Bobbitt, editor Joan Sobel, and production designer Tom Conroy.
Paramount Pictures has planned a January 31, 2020 theatrical release.
