Blake Lively turns vengeful assassin in The Rhythm Section trailer

If Peppermint gave Jennifer Garner her Punisher, well, it seems The Rhythm Section is giving Blake Lively her PeppermINTERNATIONAL. Have a look with this first trailer.

Lively stars as a woman whose family is tragically killed in a plane accident. OR WAS IT AN ACCIDENT???

No. It wasn’t an accident.

So, after the requisite scene where she hastily hacks her long hair off in a mirror (not shown in the trailer, but heavily implied), she heads off to hunt down the terrorists responsible for the crash. Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown help her with that somehow.

It seems like a pretty stock revenge action-thriller script, but thanks to Emmy-winning cinematographer-turned-director Reed Morano (I Think We’re Alone Now, Handmaid’s Tale), at least it looks elevated from that.

The Rhythm Section’s January 31 release isn’t very promising though.

Please help these sad nobodies and:
