Allison Janney & Jurnee Smollett in Very Stormy Thriller 'Lou' Trailer
"The world's not a playground. Teach your kid to look out for herself." Netflix has revealed the trailer for a crime thriller titled Lou, from filmmaker Anna Foerster, who hasn't directed any other movie since making Underworld: Blood Wars in 2016. Produced by J.J. Abrams, this is heading straight to Netflix for streaming in September. A storm rages. A young girl is kidnapped. Her mother teams up with the mysterious woman next door to pursue the kidnapper, a journey that tests their limits and exposes shocking secrets from their pasts. Academy Award winner Allison Janney and Emmy Award nominee Jurnee Smollett star in Lou, alongside Logan Marshall-Green and Ridley Asha Bateman. Wow this looks intense!! Allison Janney stepping up and fighting back - damn. It's almost like she's playing Josephine Wick or something similar with that line about "we all have a past, we all have secrets" at the end. This might be worth a watch after all.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Anna Foerster's Lou, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
