A Simple Favor Trailer

“A Simple Favor” Trailer Keeps the Mystery Alive

Heavily touted as a “darker side of director Paul Feig”, the new trailer for thriller A Simple Favor does take the filmmaker in a totally new direction - especially when compared to his last film, the underwhelming Ghostbusters.

Anna Kendrick stars as Stephanie, a small-town mommy blogger whose new friend Emily (Blake Lively) has just gone missing.  A snippet from a phone conversation has Emily asking for a favor and suddenly the police are at Stephanie’s door looking for answers.

So what exactly happened?  Where did Emily go?  That’s what the cops are trying to find out - and while the stylish trailer won’t offer any clues, it was still unique, modern and somewhat sleazy montage of images, offering up a slight clue as to what we can expect from the novel by writer Darcey Bell.

Henry Golding, Andrew Rannells, Jean Smart, Rupert Friend and Linda Cardellini co-star in the murder mystery, which will invade theaters on September 14.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
