There's nothing quite like a "one man against the world" action movie, except, perhaps, the "one woman against the world" action movie. Blake Lively is ready to show that she can do everything the boys can do in The Rhythm Section. The long delayed movie is finally ready to make a bow and the first trailer is here. Based on everything we see here, it looks like it was all worth the wait. Check out the trailer below.

The Rhythm Section stars Blake Lively as a woman whose life spirals out of control after she losses her entire family in a plane crash. While that could be enough to send anybody over the edge, the final push comes when she discovers the crash was not an accident, but an intentional bombing. Now Lively's character has found a purpose in life, revenge.

Of course, Lively's character, named Stephanie Patrick, is no super spy or military expert, so she needs help to learn how to do what she'll need to do to get that revenge. This is where Jude law comes in, as the reluctant teacher, who helps Patrick become the killer she'll need to become.

It's been something of a long road for The Rhythm Section to make it to the big screen. The movie was filming back in 2017 when Lively injured her hand performing a stunt. The movie had to be put on hold while the lead actress healed. While the injury was expected to cause only a minor delay, the movie ended up being suspended indefinitely when the hand took much longer than anticipated to heal.

The movie did get finished, of course, and was originally set to debut this past February, but then the movie got pushed to November. However, even that release date didn't stick. The movie would have been opening against Frozen II and other awards season competition, so the decision was made to push it out to January.

While a January release date doesn't traditionally inspire confidence, the fact is that these days there's no such thing as a bad release date. Audiences have shown that they'll come see a movie they're interested in regardless of when it arrives. Although, the film will open the same weekend as the 2020 Super Bowl, so one has to hope the film going audience isn't too distracted that weekend.

Blake Lively has been getting some great film projects of late. The Shallows was a surprisingly good thriller that Lively carried entirely on her own, showing how capable she truly is a leading lady. A Simple Favor was dark and stylish and a real treat. If this track record continues then The Rhythm Section could end up being one of the better installments in this genre in recent memory.

The Rhythm Section will be in theaters January 31, 2020
