Get a Look at the First Trailer and Posters for ‘Pain Hustlers’

The first trailer for Pain Hustlers has been released. Directed by David Yates, with a screenplay by Wells Tower, the movie stars Chris Evans, Emily Blunt, Catherine O’Hara, Chloe Coleman, Jay Duplass, Brian d’Arcy James, Amit Shah, Aubrey Dollar, Willie Raysor and Andy Garcia. The movie is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Evan Hughes.

Here is the plot synopsis:

“Liza Drake (Emily Blunt) is a blue-collar single mom who has just lost her job and is at the end of her rope. A chance meeting with pharmaceutical sales rep Pete Brenner (Chris Evans) puts her on an upwards trajectory economically but dubious path ethically as she becomes entangled in a dangerous racketeering scheme. Dealing with her increasingly unhinged boss (Andy Garcia), the worsening medical condition of her daughter (Chloe Coleman), and a growing awareness of the devastation the company is causing forces Liza to examine her choices. Pain Hustlers is a sharp and revealing look at what some people do out of desperation and ot do out of greed.”

Additionally, two posters for Emily Blunt’s and Chris Evans’ characters were released, which you can look at below:
