Blake Lively has shared the trailer for her film, A Simple Favor, on Twitter.

The 30-year-old actress caused a stir when she deleted all her Instagram posts on Monday night after posting an image of a completed game of hangman, the answer to which was 'What happened to Emily?'.

Her 20.4 million followers wondered also why the actress then began following 27 women named Emily Nelson on the social media platform.

The stunt was to promote her new film, What Happened to Emily?, in which she stars opposite Anna Kendrick, who plays her best friend.

Kendrick plays a 'mommy vlogger' who tries to find out the truth behind her glamorous best friend Emily's disappearance.  Directed by Paul Feig the film is based on the book by Darcey Bell and releases in the US on September 4.
