Queen & Slim Trailer

"Ya'll really gave us something to believe in." Universal has released the third trailer for Queen & Slim in theaters this fall, directed by music video filmmaker Melina Matsoukas, from a screenplay written by the very talented Lena Waithe. We've already posted two other excellent trailers for this, but a third one can't hurt especially since it looks damn good. A couple's first date takes an unexpected turn when a police officer pulls them over, but the man then kills the cop in self defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the two decide to go on the run. Starring Daniel Kaluuya as Slim, Jodie Turner-Smith (from "Nightflyers") as Queen. "Joining a legacy of films such as Bonnie & Clyde and Thelma & Louise, Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence." This also stars Bokeem Woodbine, Sturgill Simpson, Chloë Sevigny, and Scott Rapp. I'm still really looking forward to this, all of these trailers have been terrific at keeping my attention.

Here's the third official trailer for Melina Matsoukas' Queen & Slim, direct from Universal's YouTube:

You can still see the teaser trailer for Matsoukas' Queen & Slim here, or the other full-length trailer here.

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie 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 is directed by filmmaker Melina Matsoukas, making her feature directorial debut after a few short films and a bunch of music videos previously, including Beyonce’s "Formation" and the Nike "Equality" campaign. The screenplay is written by Lena Waithe, from a story by James Frey. Universal will debut Matsoukas' Queen & Slim in select US theaters starting November 27th, 2019 this fall. Looking good? Who wants to see this?

Yeah, I'm in. To see a police as an occupational force ...

I like this young actor, Daniel Kaluuya, more than any of the crop of young actors around today...white and black. He just seems authentic and the real deal to me. Even though I eventually didn't really care for Get Out, I liked him in it and his performance a lot. This kind of story regarding the inherent racism in our country and culture is important so I hope they have done a good job of not only making it, but putting it together in a workable and successful presentation. The Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma and Louise reference...I'm not too sure if that's going to help or hinder them with the comparisons to those two excellent films. Good luck to them.
