Way back in August of this year, the internet went crazy over a photo of Childish Gambino and Rihanna buddied up on what was speculated to be a movie set in Cuba.
And now as we know, the rumours were right.
Gambino confirmed our greatest dreams by previewing the trailer of the two’s upcoming movie Guava Island at PHAROS festival in New Zealand over the weekend, where we can see the Gambino and Rihanna alongside one another, as well as Black Panther’s Letitia Wright.
The film is also directed by none other than Hiro Murai, who also worked on Atlanta and multiple Gambino music videos. So naturally, we’re expecting the best.
Judging by what we’ve seen, it does seem that production could be close to wrapping up right now, if not already finished. There’s no release date just yet, but IMO it couldn’t come quicker.
Check out the trailer below – courtesy of a PHAROS festival-goer/our saviour – and stay tuned for updates on the big screen release.
