Queen & Slim go on the run in their new trailer

“Well, if it isn’t the Black Bonnie and Clyde.” That’s about the most succinct summary you can get for Queen & Slim, Melina Matsoukas and Lena Waithe’s upcoming drama about two very attractive people on an awkward first date that turns into a combustive romance when they’re forced to go on the run together. Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Widows) stars alongside up-and-comer Jodie Turner-Smith, for a film that blends social commentary—the couple flees their Ohio hometown after Slim (Kaluuya) accidentally kills a cop during a racist traffic stop—with sexy thrills.

Queen & Slim opens on November 29.
