After having its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, NEON pictures has released the official trailer for Lupita Nyong’o‘s zombie rom-com Little Monsters.
The film follows Nyong’o as Miss Caroline, an elementary school teacher who suddenly finds herself protecting herself and her kids from an outbreak of flesh-eating zombies.
In the trailer, Nyong’o character is joined by a mediocre musician named Dave, played by Josh Gad, and a popular kids’ show personality named Teddy McGiggle, played by Alexander England. While on a field trip, the two vie for her affections, but things get off track once the zombies show up.
“My job is to keep you safe,” Nyong’o tells the kids in the trailer. “Stay here until I get back.”
The film serves as the Black Panther star’s follow-up to her hit movie Us, directed by Jordan Peele. It’s set to arrive in theaters on Hulu sometime this year, but there’s no official release date.
Meanwhile, another Black Panther star’s film has officially been pushed back.
According to Deadline, Chadwick Boseman‘s highly anticipated cop thriller 21 Bridges, which was originally schedule to drop on September 27, will now premiere on November 27.
Deadline reports that after the trailer for the movie got a “strong response” at San Diego Comic-Con, the decision was made to move the film away from a “crowded September.”
As previously reported, the film reunites Boseman with producers Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed him in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. It follows Boseman as an embattled NYPD detective who gets a shot at redemption after being called to help in a citywide manhunt for a cop killer.
