Second Trailer for Thriller 'The Rhythm Section' Starring Blake Lively
"I'm going to do this my way." Paramount has debuted a second official trailer for The Rhythm Section, an adaptation of the best-selling novel - the first book from the "Stephanie Patrick Thrillers" series by Mark Burnell. The Rhythm Section is described as an international spy thriller about a woman who takes on the identity of an assassin in order to seek out and get revenge on those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family. She is trained, then goes out on her own to find them. Blake Lively stars as Stephanie Patrick, along with Jude Law, Max Casella, Daniel Mays, Richard Brake, Raza Jaffrey, Tawfeek Barhom, and Sterling K. Brown. This actually looks pretty damn cool. I've been looking forward to this, and I hope it's as exhilarating as these trailers make it look. And now we know what the title is referencing.
Here's the second official trailer for Reed Morano's The Rhythm Section, from Paramount's YouTube:
The Rhythm Section is an international spy thriller that follows the story of Stephanie Patrick, a woman who seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family. After she discovers that the crash was not accidental, she embarks on a mission to track down those responsible by assuming the identity of an assassin. The Rhythm Section is directed by American cinematographer / filmmaker Reed Morano, director of the films Meadowland and I Think We're Alone Now previously, as well as TV work including "The Handmaid's Tale" and "The Power". The screenplay is written by Mark Burnell, adapted from Burnell's own book of the same name. Produced by Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, the same two who also produce the Bond movies at Eon. Paramount will release Morano's The Rhythm Section in theaters everywhere starting January 31st, 2020 at the end of this month. Who's planning to see this in theaters?
This is the best trailer so far. I'll check this out when it streams.

Honestly, it looks weak and derivative a bit ...

I agree that it does look a bit derivative, but most spy films are derivative of each other and mostly the same, but I don't agree that it looks weak. I think it looks strong, very strong, and I'm a big fan of Reed Morano and her filmmaking sensibilities.

Yea, I think it looks strong too. I like Blake Lively and totally bought her as this character. It's good to see a believable film with a lead character being a woman and the film being directed by a woman. I look forward to seeing this as it's more grounded in realism than the super hero comic book stuff.

it's the same script as " Peppermint " .. will it be any better than that , just because it's " international " gangsters ? or Lively instead of JGard ?

I disagree. It's a whole different thing altogether. It also has a different look...a different aesthetic and a different tone than Peppermint. Just from the silly and lame name of Peppermint this differentiates itself from that.
thespiritbo on Jan 22, 2020
the aesthetic is different , in that it looks like half the movie focuses on what Peppermint DIDN"T focus on ..i.e. how a housewife gets turned into an assassin , slowly , step by step . And it seems cooler cause it's set in Europe somewhere ;?)) not among the homeless on the streets of Cali But , it's the same plot , overall .... I didn't go see Peppermint either ,as much as I love JGard ..so I'll wait til this one is Free With My Cable Subscription , too ...Not really Entertained by movies that celebrate The Gun, or Assassins No gender bias - I hate the John Wick movies too ...

Ok, I'll trust to both of you (Bo included, right?) on this. I mean, so many of them looks very similar and those stories on spies and revenge are slowly wearing me down. But ok, this one is on you since I trust in your judgment and I'll try to report back after I see it to telly you was that experience rewarding for me. Deal?

I hope they make this a bit more realistic like the trailer hints at. If Lively instantly becomes a great killer that would be a let down.

Should be worth a watch. I've always liked Blake Lively.
