'Malcolm & Marie': Netflix Drops Trailer for Zendaya and John David Washington Starrer Filmed in Quarantine

The black-and-white romantic drama from 'Euphoria' director Sam Levinson was shot amid the pandemic and is set to start streaming on Feb. 5.

Netflix on Friday released a trailer for the romantic drama Malcolm & Marie.

Starring Zendaya (Euphoria) and John David Washington (BlackKklansman, Tenet), the black-and-white film follows how a director's relationship with his girlfriend is tested when they return home from a movie premiere and await responses from critics.

"You are by far the most excruciating, difficult, stubbornly obnoxious woman I've ever met in my entire life," Washington's character Malcolm declares in the trailer. "I fucking love you." Later on, Malcolm tells her, "I love the way you see the world, Marie."

As the two-and-a-half minute trailer progresses, Marie comes to the conclusion, "You know what, Malcolm? I feel like once you know someone's there for you and once you know they love you, you never actually think of them again. It's not until you're about to lose someone that you finally pay attention."

Helming the project as writer and director is Sam Levinson (Euphoria). Netflix acquired the film, which was shot on 35 mm with a small crew amid the COVID-19 pandemic, last September for $30 million following a bidding war between several distributors. The streamer plans to launch an Oscar campaign for the project.

Malcolm & Marie will be available on Netflix Feb. 5. View the trailer below.
