Paula Patton — and her fabulous collection of boss lady fashions — have no time for your criminal foolishness in EW’s exclusive trailer for the new BET+ movie Sacrifice.
You Got Served director Chris Stokes’ upcoming thriller stars the Precious actress as Daniella Hernandez, a no-nonsense Los Angeles entertainment lawyer whose bad-girl reputation — and roster of infamous clients — often gets in the way of her sorority-sister-turned-nemesis, Beverly Rucker, the city’s district attorney.
The clip (above) follows Hernandez as she juggles drug-fueled parties, music video shoots, and her wealthy clients’ wild ways while Rucker — whom she accuses of spearheading “the most murderous police force in the country” — breathes down her neck.
When a new threat begins attacking Hernandez’s clientele, however, she enlists the help of her resourceful assistant and a young ex-hacker to get to the bottom of the case — which may or may not have something to do with Rucker.
“This one needs to pay for what he did,” Patton teases ominously as the preview draws to a close.
