A full trailer has finally arrived for the upcoming flick Queen & Slim and it’s sure to be a go-to movie for the fall.
The movie, directed by Melina Matsoukas and written/produced by Lena Waithe, will follow a couple on the run after one of them kills a cop.
The official description, according to Shadow and Act….
“While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a Black man and a Black woman, are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country. As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances, and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.”
The movie stars Daniel Kaluuya, Chloe Sevigny, Bokeem Woodbine and Indya Moore of Pose fame. The leading lady of the film is none other than Jodie Turner-Smith and after roles in sci-fi shows like The Last Ship, Nightflyers and Jett, this feature film is sure to be a breakout role for the actress.
