First ‘A Simple Favour’ Trailer Has Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively in a Twisty Mystery


Take a look at the first trailer to arrive for A Simple Favour, an upcoming mystery-thriller led by Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

Directed by Bridesmaids and Spy helmer Paul Feig, the film follows a mommy vlogger (Kendrick) who uncovers more than she bargained for when looks into the sudden disappearance of her stylish, enigmatic best friend (Lively). As Kendricks’ character says in the teaser below, “I”m realising I don’t know her as well as I thought I did.”

The first look keeps much of what’s going on under wraps, as it should… but it’s not a very enticing trailer. That final shot of Lively does intrigue, though.

We’ll see what we’re in for when the film, which Feig wrote with Jessica Sharzer (American Horror Story, Nerve), opens in the US on September 14.
