Zendaya and John David Washington star in the first trailer for Netflix’s Malcolm & Marie.
In the highly-anticipated film from “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson, filmmaker Malcolm (John David Washington) and his girlfriend Marie (Zendaya) return home from a movie premiere and await his film’s critical response. But the evening takes a turn as revelations about their relationship surface, testing the couple’s love.
The black-and-white film, which is already generating Oscar buzz, was shot in 14 days and 14 nights amid the quarantine lockdown last summer at the Caterpillar House in Carmel, Calif. It was picked up by Netflix in a huge $30 million deal in September.
“We made a bubble. We all quarantined and stayed in this very small area in the middle of nowhere. We shot in this house… we weren’t allowed to leave or go anywhere,” Zendaya told Pharrell’s “OTHERTone” podcast. “I’m doing my own hair and makeup in the bathroom and brought a lot of my clothes to help with set [decoration].”
Malcolm & Marie premieres Feb. 5 on Netflix.
