Netflix has dropped the official trailer of Sam Levinson’s upcoming romantic drama, Malcolm & Marie.
Starring Euphoria‘s Zendaya and TENET‘s John David Washington as the titular characters, the film is not billed as love story but rather a “story of love.” The monochromatic trailer sees the highs and lows of the couple as they dive deeper into the structure of their relationship, resulting in “revelations” that puts a strain on their love:
“Writer/Director Sam Levinson teams up with Zendaya and John David Washington for an achingly romantic drama in which a filmmaker (Washington) and his girlfriend (Zendaya) return home following a celebratory movie premiere as he awaits what’s sure to be imminent critical and financial success. The evening suddenly takes a turn as revelations about their relationships begin to surface, testing the strength of their love.
Working with cinematographer Marcell Rev, Levinson creates a film of rare originality; an ode to the great Hollywood romances as well as a heartfelt expression of faith in the medium’s future.”
Watch the full trailer above. Malcolm & Marie premieres February 5 on Netflix.
