Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick have Tricks Up their sleeves in ‘A Simple Favor’ moving posters

Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick have Tricks Up their sleeves in ‘A Simple Favor’ moving posters

People Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively are out to trick you in moving posters — exclusive to PEOPLE — for their twisty new thriller, A Simple Favor.

Directed by Paul Feig (BridesmaidsSpy), A Simple Favor stars Kendrick, 33, as Stephanie, a mommy vlogger who attempts to figure out why and how her best friend Emily (Lively, 31) went missing. In the process, she discovers Emily isn’t exactly who she said she was.

The cheeky moving posters give a wink and nod to classic Americana like the Saturday Evening PostGood Housekeeping and American Gothic — but with a distinctly dark twist. Just as in the unpredictable movie, nothing is quite as it seems.

The posters, titled “The Domestic Bliss Series,” were photographed by Tim Palen.

Our Domestic Bliss Series is our way of having fun with the audience’s expectations of what they think this movie will be,” Feig tells PEOPLE. “It’s a slice of Saturday Evening Post, a dollop of Bad Housekeeping and a generous sprinkling of the Haunted Mansion on top.

Our movie is all about appearances being not what they seem and so we loved the idea of playing with the concept of ‘It’s not what you think.’ And I think these morphing photos do this in the most fun way possible.”

A Simple Favor opens Sept. 14.

People – A Simple Favor, the new movie starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively and directed by Paul Feig comes out next Friday, Sept. 14th. But if you were believe a funny spoof video — exclusive to PEOPLE — they just released where they try and pitch the idea to a movie studio, the dark comic thriller would have been a totally different movie. (More like Bad Moms mixed with a little bit of Bad Teacher.)

The video also makes fun of the idea that director Paul Feig has deemed it “OK for women to be funny!” (Feig, who created Freaks and Geeks also directed Bridesmaids and Spy.)

In the film, Kendrick, 33, plays Stephanie, a mommy vlogger who attempts to figure out why and how her best friend Emily (Lively) went missing—and though it isn’t exactly Bad Moms, the two do share a kiss at one point, which she recently opened up about.

“I mean, all I’m ever thinking about in [kissing] scenes is, who has gum? Who has a mint?” she told PrideSource in an interview. “And I think Blake is probably the same because I’ve never experienced a guy, searching for gum. So, we were the mintiest, freshest two people to have ever kissed in the history of America.”

A Simple Favor opens Sept. 14.

Blake Lively Opens Up about the “Most Intense Film” of Her Career

How All I See Is You challenged Lively to dig into a difficult role and see nude scenes in a new light.

In the upcoming drama All I See Is You, Blake Lively plays a nearly blind woman whose sight is restored after an urgent, miraculous surgery. The character, Gina, then goes through a whirlwind of change, discovering new things about herself, her sexuality, and her marriage. It’s a fraught psychological affair, with Gina’s husband (played by Jason Clarke) slowly realizing that he misses the days when his wife was wholly dependent on him.

“It’s the performance that I’m most proud of,” Lively tells Vanity Fair.

Directed by Marc Forster, the film requires a lot of Lively, who appears in nearly every scene as her character transforms from a meek woman into a determined siren. Forster shapes the drama with experimental flair, featuring kaleidoscopic imagery and racy scenes that required Lively to appear partially nude on screen for the first time in her career.

That was so outside her wheelhouse that Lively almost never saw the script in the first place; her team assumed she would not be interested in a role that required nudity, and Forster was unwilling to remove it. “I thought well, he’s not unmoving. Let me read it and if it’s great, then I’ll [talk] him out of it.”

So Lively read the script, and instantly fell in love—nude scene and all. The way Forster had written it actually changed the way Lively viewed on-screen nudity: “I always find nudity distracting,” she says. “I’m very in love with my husband, but if there’s a pair of boobs out, I’m a human being! You’re like ‘boobs!’ It doesn’t mean I’m lusting for them, [but] when there’s naked boobies, you look at them.”

For character research, Lively consulted with blind friends and experimented with using blackout glasses. Throughout the film, the actress also has to wear a variety of contact lenses to show her character’s evolving states of visibility. In an act of true kismet, the on-set lens technician who worked with Lively had actually gone through something similar to her character’s experience, and was able to serve as an instant resource for the actress.

“I was really acting for her,” she says. “[I would ask] is this the accurate reaction? How do you feel? If I would make her laugh, or if I would make her cry . . . then I knew I was doing my job.”

The film took place and was actually shot in Thailand last year. Lively leapt right into the job just four months after giving birth to her second daughter, working grueling 19-hour work days. “I don’t remember a moment that we weren’t filming,” she says. “It was the most intense film I’d ever been on.”

When asked how one manages to keep up regular 19-hour work days, Lively laughs: “You just stop sleeping at night.”

All I See Is You hits theaters on October 27. Check out an poster and screencaps we have added to the gallery…
