The rather timely release of news over .38 was a pretty smart move as it gets people looking in Taylor’s direction with Traffik now signaling moviegoers, and the trailer itself looks equally amazing. The tagline on the poster itself also helps illuminate much more on what the new thriller alludes as the footage also shows a woman, beaten and bloodied seemingly on the run. The rest is pretty much history with the messaging there which definitely makes this a much more layered work from Taylor.
