The Rhythm Section (2020) - New Trailer - Paramount Pictures.
Three years after her family's death in a plane crash, Stephanie Patrick (Blake Lively) works as a prostitute in London and is addicted to drugs. One day, she is approached at her brothel by a journalist, Keith Proctor (Raza Jaffrey), who tells her that the plane crash was not an accident, but was a terrorist attack covered up by the government.
Though she initially does not believe him, Stephanie visits his apartment, where she sees all of his research on the crash. He tells her that the plane crash was caused by a bomb made by a man named Reza, who attends university in London. Stephanie buys a gun and tracks Reza to the university cafeteria. She plans to kill him, but at the last second, she is unable to pull the trigger and Reza escapes. Hours later, Stephanie returns to Proctor's apartment, where she had been staying, and finds Proctor dead.
Through Proctor's notes, she discovers that his source for his research, B (an ex-MI6 agent), lives in a remote location in Scotland. She travels to Scotland to find B, who is disgusted with her quest to find and kill Reza. After she explains that she has nothing to lose, he reluctantly trains her to complete her quest. B, Iain Boyd (Jude Law), explains to her that Reza was hired by a radical terrorist, U-17, who downed the plane to kill liberal Muslim reformer Abdul Kaif. The rest of the plane crash was collateral damage. Stephanie is trained to assume the identity of an assassin, Petra Reuter, whom Boyd killed, but whose body was never found.
After months of extensive training, Boyd instructs her to go to Madrid to find Marc Serra, an information broker and ex-CIA agent, because Serra may be able to lead her to U-17. But Boyd can offer no funding, so Stephanie first visits Kaif's father Suleman and asks him to fund her mission, just as he had been funding Proctor's research. Suleman refuses. Proctor, he says, stole his money and vanished; Stephanie replies that this is false, that she herself caused Proctor's death, but Kaif orders her to leave. Kaif's mother Alia overhears, and she offers to fund Stephanie. Stephanie accepts and leaves her father's wedding ring with Alia, promising to return for it.
