The first trailer for Pain Hustlers, starring Chris Evans and Emily Blunt, has been released.
The upcoming Netflix drama follows Blunt’s character Liza Drake, a high school dropout who wants to provide a better life for her daughter.
Liza eventually lands a job at a failing pharmaceutical startup following a chance meeting with Evan's sales rep Pete Brenner, but things take a sinister turn when she becomes involved in an illegal conspiracy.
Netflix's official synopsis continues: "Dealing with her increasingly unhinged boss, the worsening medical condition of her daughter and a growing awareness of the devastation the company is causing forces Liza to examine her choices."
The trailer teases Liza and Pete's lavish lifestyle at the company, while we also learn that the movie "may cause increased energy, elevated mood, ecstasy, paranoia, aggression and greed". Consider us warned.
Pain Hustlers also stars Schitt's Creek's Catherine O'Hara, Father of the Bride's Andy García, Last Christmas' Amit Shah, Transparent's Jay Duplass, West Side Story's Brian d'Arcy James and Marry Me's Chloe Coleman.
And we might want to make the most of seeing Blunt on the big screen. The star, who recently starred in Christopher Nolan's biographical war drama Oppenheimer, revealed back in July that she's actually taking a break from acting to spend time with her family.
"This year, I'm not working. I worked quite a bit last year and my oldest baby is nine, so we're in the last year of single digits," the actress, who shares two children with husband John Krasinski, explained during an episode of iHeart's Table for Two podcast.
"And I just feel [like] there are cornerstones to their day that are so important when they're little."
Pain Hustlers will stream on Netflix from October 27.
