FIRST LOOK: Rihanna and Donald Glover in ‘Guava Island’
The superstars are taking their talents to the big screen.
Donald Glover finally shared a sneak peek of the mysterious film he’s starring in with Rihanna and we can’t wait to learn more about the flick, Guava Island.
Glover shared the trailer for the movie that also features Black Panther star, Letitia Wright and is directed by Hiro Murai over the weekend during his stint at his three-day music and virtual reality festival, PHAROS, in Auckland, New Zealand.
Footage is making the rounds on social media thanks to someone who captured it on their phone. Check it out:
In the trailer, Glover’s character seems to highlight what the movie will be about.
“We live in paradise, but none of us have the time or the means to actually live here,” he says. “We work hard, we deserve a day off.”
There’s not a ton of info on the project as of yet, but we’re able to gather that Rihanna plays Glover’s character’s partner in the film. We also catch a glimpse of Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie, but no word on how their roles tie in to the bigger picture.
The secrecy surrounding this project makes it even more intriguing than its impressive cast and we can’t help but wonder if this isn’t some sort of last hoorah from Glover’s alter ego, Childish Gambino, considering he headlined the festival under that moniker and the trailer bills Guava Island as “a Childish Gambino Film.”
Could this flick be more like a super long music video? Fans will have to wait and see.
