“It’s not a love story, it’s a love story. “
So over the summer, which looks like a million years ago, Zendaya, John David Washington and euphoria designer Sam Levinson has teamed up to Malcolm and Marie, a movie that was written and shot during the pandemic.
Sam Levinson wrote the script in just six days, filming only lasted two weeks, AND it was one of the first films to shoot under strict COVID-19 guidelines.
Basically I was excited about Malcolm and Marie since it was announced, and now we finally have a trailer and more details on it.
Selon Netflix, Malcolm and Marie follows a filmmaker (John David Washington) and his girlfriend (Zendaya) as they “come home from a festive movie premiere.”
As he waits for critics to revisit what is sure to be a blockbuster movie, the evening takes a turn when the couple suddenly reveal things about their relationship that ultimately test “the strength of their love.”
In the first trailer, we get a glimpse of some of the moments between them, and I can already tell there will be some AMAZING monologues from Zendaya and John David Washington.
I mean, I’m already getting chills and this trailer is barely 3 minutes long. Can you IMAGINE what the rest of the movie will look like?
Not to be dramatic, but I think it’s safe to say that Zendaya and John David Washington just competed in the 2021 Oscars race, and TBH, I’d give them a price based on that trailer alone.
Netflix also describes Malcolm and Marie as “an ode to great Hollywood romances” and says it is “a sincere expression of faith in the future of the medium”.
Honestly, it looks like this movie should come with a packet of tissues, because I’m already crying just thinking about it.
Malcolm and Marie will begin streaming on Netflix on February 5 and will be in select theaters in January.
