has released the first trailer for The Lovebirds
. This is the latest from director Michael Showalter
. The movie stars Kumail Nanjiani
(Silicon Valley) and Issa Rae
(Insecure) as a married couple who find themselves in something of an interesting predicament, to say the very least of it. This also happens to reunite Showalter and Nanjianai, who previously collaborated on The Big Sick
, which went on to become on Oscar-nominated hit. Based on this first trailer at least, it looks like the magic is still there with this creative combination.
The trailer wastes absolutely no time in getting to the point. We see glimpses of the relationship this couple has. They are quite happy. Yet, unfortunately, a simple night out for them is totally hijacked when someone jumps in their car and runs over a seemingly innocent pedestrian, then abandons them, making it look like they murdered him.
