'If Beale Street Could Talk' Trailer: Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Regina King Fight for Love and Justice
Annapurna Pictures launched the second trailer for Barry Jenkins' new film on Thursday.
Annapurna Pictures released a new trailer Thursday for Barry Jenkins' upcoming film If Beale Street Could Talk, starring Regina King, Kiki Layne and Stephan James.
Based on the novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk centers on James' Alonzo "Fonny" Hunt and Layne's Tish Rivers. The lovers must fight for freedom and for their newborn child when Fonny is falsely accused of rape.
The trailer takes a look at the early honeymoon stages of their relationship, as well as the fear that ensues after Fonny is arrested and Tish learns she is pregnant.
"I've never been more ready for anything in my whole life," Tish tells Fonny. "You know I love you, no matter what."
Their love is soon tested when Fonny is behind bars and Tish is carrying their child. But, as Tish's mother (King) reminds her, love is stronger than adversity.
"Remember, love is what brought you here," her mother coos. "And if you trusted love this far, don’t panic now. Trust it all the way."
Also starring Fear the Walking Dead's Colman Domingo, Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry, Rogue One's Diego Luna, Pedro Pascal and Dave Franco, If Beale Street Could Talk hits theaters Nov. 30.
