The Lovebirds trailer: Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani get caught up in a strange murder mystery
The Big Sick is the film that put Kumail Nanjiani on the map (and the new super-sized version of the comedian is set to be unleashed in The Eternals) and he returns to work with the film's director Michael Showalter in his new rom-com, The Lovebirds. Issa Rae has also been building her profile on the big screen after finding success with the HBO TV hit Insecure and her dig at the Academy while presenting the Oscar nominations earlier this week was pretty enjoyable too. While this seems to be the perfect fit for Sunance, it will actually be making its debut at SXSW instead. Check out the trailer for The Lovebirds above.
On the very brink of breaking up, a couple gets unintentionally embroiled in a bizarre murder mystery. As they get closer to clearing their names and solving the case, they need to figure out how they, and their relationship, can survive the night.
Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) directs a cast starring Issa Rae, Kumail Nanjiani, Anna Camp, Kelly Murtagh, Moses Storm and Betsy Borrego.
The Lovebirds arrives in US cinemas on April 3 and in the UK April 24.
