Daniel Kaluuya ("Get Out") and newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith star as a Black couple whose first date takes an unexpected turn when a white police officer pulls them over and gets shot for his troubles.

Queen & Slim is a modern spin on Bonnie & Clyde that takes on new meaning in the social media era. If you saw the 1985 movie The Legend of Billie Jean, you've seen this movie.

Directed by Melina Matsoukas, Queen & Slim also stars Chloë Sevigny, Bokeem Woodbine and Indya Moore.

Queen & Slim was written by Lena Waithe, so don't expect much in the way of real story telling. Expect a lot of virtue signaling and social and political issues.

Universal Pictures released a second trailer on Wednesday because the first trailer failed to generate the buzz they were hoping for.

If you saw the first trailer, it's not much different from this one. They added a few more protest scenes and civil unrest.

Question: Do you plan to see Queen & Slim, or have you seen this story played out too many times on social media?

    LMAO, "The Legend of Billie Jean" was my JAM back in the day! Thanks for reminding me about this one, I'ma see if I can find it for a weekend's been a minute.
    "I think I got my period!" LOL!

  • AmericanDream

    This is boring . I say this as someone who will watch almost anything . There's virtually no suspense and it seems to be awfully predictable ,at least based on the trailer

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Bokeem Woodbine
    Dang I cant stand Lena no more but I wanna support my boo. I will see.

  • Miss Lady

    I think I want to see this, it may be a fire stick viewing cuz it does not appear to be worth $13 at the theater. On another note....I see why guys take you out and think they gonna get sum poom poom. I took my boo to the movies and the tickets, large popcorn, two drinks and some candy was $50. Just that made me tell him, you know you giving me some when we get to the car. I cannot be mad when he does it now.

  • Dahl

    Well someone certainly is no Lena Waithe fan, sheesh...

  • SaltineCrackers

    Damn on Thanksgiving? They tryna start a damn race war to make room for...

  • OUBoyWonder

    Doing the Lords work Miss Lady...on behalf of men, thank you for your service. Taking your boo out was nice, of course not expected to be an every-time thing, but every once in THAT'S a lady.

  • KarmaBackAround

  • peribabes

  • Nina Ross

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sure, I’ll spend my coins tew see it but not on Thanksgiving

  • Cricket404

    My daughters' 7th grade reading list has 3 books on police brutality and killings in the black community, I'm emotionally exhausted and spent. I will wait for it on Amazon Prime .

  • Readytochokemothernature

    I don't even want to think of Thanksgiving this year. Nobody in the family can duplicate my two aunts recipes and they took it with them anyways. Is that a good opening day because shopping seems to be the go to that say.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Lord I just watched. Not sure if I am going to see the movie but for sure copping that soundtrack. The brothers Gibb sanging Stayin Alive will NEVER get old. Its acapella too. SHEWWW.

    *I also see my beautiful Angel Evangelista from Pose is in this movie

  • Ni Ni

    I fell in love with Bokeem in Jason's Lyric. Something about him being a good for nothing thug just turned me on.?

  • OvertheMississippi

    I wasn’t interested! Then I saw “her” name mentioned. Show not interested now!

  • Guest

    Jodie Turner-Smith is stunning. I'm starting to like Daniel Kaluuya more and more. And well, I have loved Bokeem since forever. I will see it.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I’ll pass.

  • Roderick2011

    Your body is only worth $50?
    I believe streetwalkers charge that for a bj.

  • EasyBreezy

    If 'Boo'keem is in it, I am am there! Fugg a story line......

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    I might see it on $6 Tuesday by myself sipping on some merlot?
    Why not ?????

  • Miss Lady

    Well RoderDick, it seems like you don't read with comprehension. That would make his body worth $50. He spent 2 years dating me before I laid down with him. Now we do what we want when we want, it is just shitz and giggles dumbazz.

  • MsPam

    I saw the preview when I went to see Once of a time Hollywood. It reminds me of the movie with Amanda Seals.

  • teather

    PASS! Can we stop with the racially charged BS. None of that has changed and the narrative does nothing to change reality.

  • Roderick2011

    "I see why guys take you out and think they gonna get sum poom poom"
    No context there.

  • Phillybruh

    I am looking forward to this movie!!!

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Yes I do.

  • onelove

    going to go see it afer i eat!!!!

  • MrsSpice1

    So dope!! Cant wait for this to come on demand me & my boo gon watch it!! We the original black bonnie and Clyde!???

  • TV

    For the culture I will certainly be seeing this. Stop hating Sandra, you are trying to minimize the skill level of Lena Waithe, but she is out front, where are you? Back here trying to be shady. Stop it!

  • TV

    We will stop with the racially charged bs when the racially charged bs stops. If we follow your advice we will be back in shackles and keeping quiet.

  • Banka

    I will watch it..!!

  • Rita

    Right...after I feed the monster in my belly.


    They both look masculine on the cover.... That had to be on purpose. I thought it was two dudes until they said couple. I was like LGBTQ film interesting but why does the woman look like a dude?? Intentional ... Then I read who made it.. all I can say is damn. I wonder if the chick is going to be more masculine than the guy in this .film

  • SpillyNillie

    I'm loving the Melanin...tis all...

  • KLove

    damn....2 years before you put out?? dude has the patience of a saint.....was he exclusive with you during this time??

  • Miss Lady

    I don't know if he was or wasn't. I just knew I was not putting out. When I decided I was ready I sprung it on him, bahahaha.

  • @yeuphonic

    Lena girl.. so a lawyer goes on a tinder date and instead of using her criminal justice/attorney background to clear up the death of the cop, it's let's go on the run? okay they said they were looking for "field slave" black woman for the character of Queen.
    Lena also protected that habitual sexual harasser. I'll pass.

  • Jacquelyn Eff

    Love it.

  • Gloria

    Am I rushing to the theater to see it? Eh.... but I do love a good BLACK love story. Have we had any other black love stories recently?

  • brooks hill

    No, not my age demo. i like the passion but i don`t need to see it. pass

  • leapyearpisces

    So a few things. I am sure this movie is being backed / funded by the Carter-Knowles camp, because I am pretty sure the Melina lady is a LONG TIME collaborator of B's (I think she directs most of her videos). My point in saying this is nothing other than, must be nice to be so wealthy that you can invest in things and bankrolled stuff and not even have your name attached anywhere to it, but you still getting that return. I will watch the movie when it comes to Netflix. It seems like a decent movie, but more of a "Saturday night, I don't want to go out, and aint nothing on tv and I am tired of seeing Ilyana call folks beloved as she wobbles around like a penguin, so let's watch a Netflix movie"-type of movie. I love Bokeem Woodbine as an actor, always have. Unfortunately, I heard that he struggles with mental issues kinda like Lisa Nicole Carson. I don't think he is schizo, but I do recall reading that he has had his struggles with his mental health. I am happy to see him out acting again.

  • Kimberly King

    Daniel is sexy to me. Can't put a finger on it.

  • leapyearpisces

    I said the same thing...when I heard the Pharcyde...I was like yep. Gonna download soundtrack when it gets on my Napsta.

  • leapyearpisces

    Emotionally spent? Girl, last night I had the misfortune of getting caught up in this Lebanese movie called "Caupernam". I will never forgive myself for doing that to myself. Any movie where children have to defend for themselves tugs at me, and this movie was like the " Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete" on steroids. Great movie, but dang issa hard one. We are so blessed to live in the United States, even homeless people should be glad they are homeless here and not in other countries because I honestly have seen homeless people live better than the little boy in this movie.

  • Raquel

    I came here to post JUST that! Yes he is, ma'am!!!! When I was watching Get Out when it came out, I was type mad because he had an ugly ass girlfriend....wasting all that good chocolate on this neanderthal beast. lol

  • leapyearpisces

    It is in his eyes. You know he will just ravish you.

  • Calikush

    Lol’n @ RoderDick! ???

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I’ll see it on streaming! But, it looks entertaining! I may not like all messages or plot-twists, but I’m interested to see how Lena handled this social commentary, outlaw film!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I saw him in Macy’s once with his mom.

  • Indies beauty

    This write up is not biased at alllllll

  • samuel severino

    Written by Lena Waithe? And get preached to for 2 hours? No thank you.

  • Maxx

    I will be watching just because Bokeem Woodbine is in it....I'm not going to judge him for his personal life, but his acting is always on point!

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I’m watching because of Daniel Kaluuya I really think he is a good actor and bokeem

  • dontgetblocked

    i watched Mary Poppins. I can't watch stressful stuff anymore.

  • MythCalledLove

    I just want to see " True To The Game 2" Dont care what he has done relationship wise in real life he played the hell out of that role. So did the guy that died alchohol issues the part when he was talking to Draya character made that movie even better

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I’m glad to see some variety in casting black peoples and the roles they play so yes I will give this a chance

  • MythCalledLove

    Especially in Black Mirror

  • dontgetblocked

    I can tell the storyline is shoddy. The shooting happened on their first date and they run away together? Why are people protesting?Why would any educated woman think she can outrun the cops? We all know how it ends. I'll watch it home on my couch.


    These black foreigners are really taking these roles from "AFRICAN AMERICANS" huh?

  • leapyearpisces

    I usually stay away from "make you wanna kill yourself " movies after Mississippi Damn. This movie tricked me. LOL.

  • Ni Ni


  • Nicol B

    I like him as an actor. WHat's going on in his life?

  • SandraRose

    Lena Waithe is a fraud. Remember where you heard it first.

  • TV

    If you are going to be something, be the best at it. It seems to be working out pretty nicely for her huh?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    And you can't go over there and get a got damn thing! ?


    Not a dammm thing
