A new trailer has dropped for Queen & Slim, bringing fans to tears.

The film, penned by Lena Waithe and directed by Melina Matsoukas, focuses on a black couple who are forced to go on the run when they kill a white police officer in self-defence.

The trailer begins with Daniel Kaluuya (Slim) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen) on the way home from their first date, when they are pulled over by a policeman.

You failed to execute a turn signal back there, the officer explains, before asking Slim to step out of the car.

When he refuses to give a reason, things escalate and Slim shoots the officer in self-defence, which then becomes front page news.

The couple flee their homes and go on the run, being greeted as heroes by some, and vicious criminals by others.

Daniel previously opened up about filming Queen & Slim – which also stars Fle and Chloe Sevigny – admitting the whole thing messed him up.

It kind of messed me up a little bit. It was dark, being in that space, he told Complex on filming in Cleveland.

We are so desensitised to that imagery of black people being beaten up by the police that you dont realise that if you [are] beaten up by somebody, you cant actually beat back.

I cant beat him up. Thats crazy. Its very intimate to me.
