What are you doing on Saturday? Make sure you clear your schedule for a couple of hours—because Rihanna and Donald Glover have a gift for you. Their new film, Guava Island, is coming out first thing in the morning.
The teaser was released today:
Guava Island is a 'tropical thriller' about a local musician who throws a music festival. Not much else is known about the film yet; the plot has been kept under wraps. It features brief shots of the two stars dancing by the beach—and that's pretty much it! You'll just have to watch to see what it's really all about. Variety reports that Glover is psyched for the film. 'I’m really humbled having the opportunity to present something this timely and timeless,' he . 'Between Rihanna and the people of Cuba, this is one of my favourite projects I’ve ever worked on.' Letitia Wright (Black Panther) and Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones) also star.
Last year, Rihanna and Glover were spotted filming in Cuba, fuelling excitement over the project.
According to , Guava Island will be available to watch on Amazon from 12:01 A.M. PST. Even if you don't have an Amazon Prime membership, there's a period of 18 hours during which you'll be able to watch it for free—until 6 P.M. that night. That's definitely one way to make sure people watch it straight away.
There's a specific reason for that : It follows the film's premiere at Coachella, where Glover is performing as Childish Gambino.
