Today, Netflix released a first Trailer for Malcolm & Marie, another movie they hope will be an Academy Award contender for them. Starring Zendaya and John Davis Washington, this film from Sam Levinson is going to be one of the final potential awards season X factors. Will it be an acting contender? Perhaps something that can contend in Best Picture? An afterthought? All possibilities are on the table right now. However, we at least now have a Trailer to look at, and it’s one that suggests that the quality from Levinson and company is certainly there. Read on for more, and of course, you can see the Trailer for Malcolm & Marie at the end of the post.
The film is a small scale drama. Here is the official synopsis from Netflix: “When filmmaker Malcolm (John David Washington) and his girlfriend Marie (Zendaya), return home from a movie premiere and await his film’s critical response, the evening takes a turn as revelations about their relationship surface, testing the couple’s love. Directed & written by Sam Levinson.” Zendaya and John David Washington make up the entire cast for Sam Levinson, while Marcell Rév handles the cinematography.
This looks like an intense flick. Zendaya and Washington appear to be in fine form for Levinson. It’s still a big mystery, but consider me more than a little bit intrigued. Coming to Netflix on February 5th (and select theaters later on this month), can it shake up the Oscar race? We shall see. In the meantime, we just have to wait. For now, here is the Trailer for Malcolm & Marie. Enjoy:
Stay tuned for more on Malcolm & Marie between now and its Netflix release date of February 5th…
