Daniel Kaluuya & Jodie Turner-Smith Are a New Bonnie & Clyde in ‘Queen & Slim’ Trailer

Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role, are a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in the new movie Queen & Slim!

The first trailer for the film, written by Lena Waithe and James Frey and directed by Melina Matsoukas, has been released.

Here is the film’s synopsis: While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Kaluuya) and a black woman (Turner-Smith), 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.

Queen & Slim hits theaters on November 27.
