Universal Pictures releases its second trailer for the Bonnie & Clyde thriller starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, Queen & Slim.
The unflinching new drama tells the story about Queen and Slim, a couple pulled over in their vehicle and the situation escalates when Slim is forced to kill the police officer in self-defense. In a complicated situation predicated on a history of state-sanctioned violence and criminal injustice against African-Americans, the two fear for their lives and is forced to go on the run.
The feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas (executive producer/director of HBO’s Insecure) stars Academy Award® nominee Daniel Kaluuya as “Slim” and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith, as “Queen.” Waithe wrote the screenplay from a story by herself and bestselling author James Frey.
The film is produced by Frey, Waithe, Matsoukas, Michelle Knudsen, Andrew Coles, Brad Weston and Pamela Abdy. The executive producers are Pamela Hirsch, Kaluuya, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth.
