Issa Rae’s Trailer For ‘The Lovebirds’ Dropped - And It’s Hilarious

The dynamic duo go on a journey to clear their names by enduring one hilarious circumstance to the next while also figuring out if their relationship will survive the night.

How many times have you been on a date with your S.O. and accidentally become implicated in a murder mystery?

The first trailer for the film shows Nanjiani and Rae as a couple deeply in love when a man commandeers their vehicle in pursuit of a criminal.

The flick, which reunites Nanjiani with his The Big Sick director Michael Showalter, calls on the actors' well-exercised comedy chops but throws its fair share of fight scenes and weapons-yielding into the mix.

Paramount dropped the trailer of The lovebirds online this morning, before its debut in theaters this weekend. Tom Lassally, Oly Obst, Martin Gero, Todd Schulman and Jordana Mollick are producing.

"The Lovebirds" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March, where it will be seen accompanied by other fun headliners, including Judd Apatow's "The King of Staten Island", which will open the festival. The film is directed by Michael Showalter and written by both Aaron Abrams and Brendan Gall, with a story by Martin Gero. Watch the first trailer above.
