Paramount has just released the first trailer for The Rhythm Section, an adaptation of Mark Burnell’s book of the same name, starring Blake Lively.
Okay, I’m in. Lively seems like an actress that isn’t afraid to jump across different genres in her career (similar to her co-star Jude Law). This film gives me some serious Atomic Blonde vibes, which can only be a good thing.
The Rhythm Section is the first in a series of novels centered on Stephanie Patrick, so there’s a chance Paramount and Lively could have a franchise on their hands. The January 2020 release date means that this could be a sleeper hit, or it means it will be overlooked in what is often called the worst month for theatrical releases.
Either way, I’m digging what I’ve seen so far, and Lively is one to watch, so Paramount has one ticket sold for next January.
The Rhythm Section hits theaters January 31, 2020.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
