Talk about musical powerhouses––two of the biggest names in the industry will be co-starring in a new movie together, and they are none other than Rihanna and Donald Glover (also known as Childish Gambino). The movie will be directed by Glover’s longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, who has worked alongside him on his projects such as Atlanta, and several of his music videos.
The trailer for the new movie premiered at Childish Gambino’s PHAROS festival in New Zealand. The film is called Guava Island, as reported by Cuban magazine Vistar back in August, though the title doesn’t actually make an appearance throughout the trailer. The trailer credits the movie as “A Childish Gambino film”. The official trailer hasn't been released yet, but below is fan footage of when it premiered.
The trailer opens with Glover playing a musician who just wants a break from the daily grind. “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.”
Rihanna plays his leading lady, but that’s really all the trailer reveals. People are speculating that this project indicates new music from Gambino, a filmed project with a social message that creatively channels his new music to fans––as Childish Gambino does always.
We have yet to really know more information. But stay tuned.
