Trailer: Queen and Slim

Posted on July 2, 2019 at 6:29 am

“Queen & Slim” is coming in November from writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s “Master of None”) and director Melina Matsoukas (Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign).

A first date goes very wrong when a black man (“Get Out’s” 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.
