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?
