First Teaser for 'A Simple Favor' Starring Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively
"Everybody has a dark side… Some of us are better at hiding it than others." Lionsgate has released the teaser trailer for a film titled A Simple Favor, the latest from acclaimed director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy, Ghostbusters). Even though he's been making comedies, this film is not a comedy, more of a mystery thriller in the vein of Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. Anna Kendrick plays a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's sudden disappearance from their small town. Blake Lively co-stars as Emily, and this also stars Linda Cardellini, Henry Golding, Rupert Friend, Eric Johnson, Jean Smart, Sarah Baker, and Andrew Rannells. I'm glad to see Feig shaking things up and doing something different, and this first tease is very slick - I dig the music and the mysterious clues.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ teaser poster) for Paul Feig's A Simple Favor, direct from YouTube:
