Blake Lively Is a British Assassin in Action-Packed Trailer for The Rhythm Section
The Rhythm Section opens Jan. 31, 2020
Blake Lively is out for blood in her new action movie The Rhythm Section.
In the breathless trailer for the film, Lively, 32, plays Stephanie Patrick, a woman who sets out on a path of revenge after learning the airplane crash that killed her family was no accident. To uncover the truth, Stephanie adopts a new identity of an assassin — with the help of some disguises — to hunt down those responsible for the tragedy.
The film, co-starring Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown, is a modern adaptation of the first of British thriller writer Mark Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick series.
It was originally set to open in February but got pushed back after Lively sustained an injury to her hand whilst shooting in 2017.
