Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith are ready to leave a legacy, and they're taking us on their black Bonnie & Clyde journey after they end up on the run after the killing of a cop.  Get into their bomb chemistry inside.

We're a little more than 2 months away from the Thanksgiving premiere of Melina Matsoukas' & Lena Waithe's upcoming super black cinematic masterpiece, Queen & Slim.  And the new trailer has us ready to hand over our credit card to cop all the tickets.

We're about to get the journey of a lifetime as a twosome's first date turns into...forever?  It's Queen & Slim against the world, in some bomb fashions in the most culturally relevant backdrops - especially because every beauty & fashion trend you see now originated in these places - of Florida, Cleveland and New Orleans, and showing what happens when a routine stop by police goes left.

Here's the synopsis:

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Joining a legacy of films such as Set It Off and Thelma & Louise, Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.

Watch the second trailer just released moments ago, below:
