Netflix Has Dropped the Trailer for Sultry Zendaya-Starring Romantic Drama 'Malcolm & Marie'
Co-starring John David Washington, the film is written and directed by 'Euphoria' creator Sam Levinson.
Big, bustling blockbusters have been absent from cinema screens for much of the past 12 months, as film studios adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to coronavirus restrictions, hygiene requirements and protocols, huge movies filled with hordes of people haven't been the easiest things to shoot of late, either. So, cinephiles can expect more than a few new features to hit both the big screen and streaming services in the coming weeks, months and years that have been made under much more intimate circumstances.
Malcolm & Marie is one of them, and it's heading to Netflix from Friday, February 5. The black-and-white film stars recent Euphoria Emmy-winner Zendaya opposite Tenet and BlacKkKlansman's John David Washington, with the pair playing a couple who've just returned home from a movie premiere — and end up spending what started as a celebratory evening working through the ups and downs of their relationship.
The streaming service has just dropped its first trailer for the feature — which, as well as proving as intimate as expected, also promises an acting showcase from its two stars. Malcolm & Marie may be a talk-heavy film, focusing on its titular characters chatting about their feelings, but both Zendaya and Washington look set to continue their recent impressive runs.
In Zendaya's case, she's also reuniting with writer/director Sam Levinson, who created Euphoria. Cinematographer Marcell Rév also has a history on the show — so if you're fond of vivid and expressive imagery, you'll be able to see what he can do while working in monochrome.
Check out the trailer below:
