Blake Lively Is a BFF You Never Wanted in Simple Favor Trailer

In the new visual, we learn her character Emily Nelson and co-star Anna Kendrick’s Stephanie Ward meet thanks to their sons, who request a play date.

A session of gab between girls commences as the ladies sip on martinis and Emily asks Stephanie to trade confessions, but according to the rest of the trailer, this isn’t a simple game of Never Have I Ever.

Instead, after issuing “a simple favor” to Stephanie to come over, Emily goes missing.

Her husband’s description of his spouse adds another layer to Emily’s emerging riddle.

“She’s an enigma, my wife,” he tells Stephanie.

We’re led to believe Stephanie may not be as innocent as she seems as the trailer includes a clip of what looks like an inappropriate dalliance with Emily’s husband.

Are the editors playing mind games with us-or is that Emily?

It seems like Blake Lively’s character Emily has the perfect life in the upcoming film A Simple Favor-but then she suddenly disappears, leaving her husband, son, and new friend Stephanie reeling.

As seen in the film’s first full trailer, which arrived Friday morning, it’s difficult to tell whether Emily was more indecipherable before or after her disappearance.

Before Emily Gone Girls herself, she befriends Stephanie, a mommy vlogger with a child in Emily’s son’s class.

Though Emily invites Stephanie to her gorgeous home to sip on midday martinis and “Trade confessions,” she continues to keep her earnest new sidekick at arm’s length, demanding that Stephanie delete a photo she took of Emily and advising her, “You do not wanna be friends with me. Trust me.”

Not long after that ominous warning, Emily calls Stephanie to ask her for the titular simple favor, at which point Stephanie and Sean discover that Emily is nowhere to be found.

The search to figure out what happened to Emily leads Stephanie to cover the town in “Have You Seen Me?” posters, discover that Sean may have taken out a $4 million life insurance policy on his wife before she vanished, and travel to a “Bible Camp” to meet with an artist who once painted a portrait of Emily in a Jessica Rabbit-esque red wig and matching red leather boots.

“She is not a normal person like you or me. I’ve never seen such a beautiful girl wanna be so invisible,” Cardellini’s character says.

Blake Lively is the new “Gone Girl.” On Friday, Lionsgate released the trailer for the mystery thriller “A Simple Favor,” starring Lively as the enigmatic Emily and Anna Kendrick as her friend, Stephanie, whose life is thrown into suspense when Emily suddenly goes missing.

“A Simple Favor” sees its A-list women become fast friends as mothers whose kids attend the same elementary school.

The plot soon darkens when Emily disappears after asking Stephanie to do her “a simple favor.”

The trailer opens innocently enough, with Emily and Stephanie meeting under the shelter of the elementary school building on a rainy pickup day.

“A few weeks ago, I met Emily, this wonderful, elegant person,” Kendrick’s voice explains.

Stephanie takes on a squeaky-clean mom role, while Emily seems to be hiding a dark secret.

“She’s an enigma, my wife,” warns Emily’s husband, played by Henry Golding.

The pair are then shown going about their normal lives until Stephanie snaps a picture of Emily.

Looking shocked, Emily does as she’s told before Stephanie warns about becoming too close to her.

The trailer cuts to a scene with Emily’s husband, who says: “She’s an enigma, my wife. She’s like a beautiful ghost.”

Fast-forward to a few days later and Stephanie receives a mysterious call from Emily asking her for “a simple favour”.

One ominously tells her: “Emily is not a normal person.”

As Stephanie desperately tries to work out what’s happened, it seems the answer could be closer to home – with Emily’s husband taking out an enormous life insurance policy for Emily just before she went missing.

While the trailer gives no clue as to whatactually happened to Emily, it looks as though that mystery will make A Simple Favor one of this year’s most hotly anticipated films.
