Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez star in a revenge thriller entitled, Lila and Eve. The film closed the Sundance 2015 Film Festival, but the theatrical trailer has recently been released, just in time for its July 17th theatrical release.

Lila and Eve tells the story of Lila (Viola Davis), a grief-stricken mom who lost her son in a drive-by shooting, and Eve (Jennifer Lopez), who lost her daughter. The women meet in a grief support group, and when Lila encounters several challenges from the police in bringing justice for her son’s slaying, Eve urges Lila to track down her son’s killers on her own. The women embark on a violent quest for justice, as they immerse themselves in a criminal underworld to avenge the murder of Lila’s son.
