Daniel Kaluuya Is In Love And On The Run In Powerful QUEEN & SLIM Trailer

Melina Matsoukas, the director behind iconic music videos such as Beyoncé’s “Formation” and Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” makes her feature debut with QUEEN & SLIM. Written by Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe, the film follows a black couple (Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith), who go on the run after a first date ends with them killing a police officer in self-defense. With a recording of the incident becoming viral, the pair, now deemed the “black Bonnie and Clyde,” become a symbol of trauma across the country. “Y’all really gave us something to believe in,” one of their admirers tells them.

QUEEN & SLIM hits UK cinemas on January 31.
