While the internet continues to revel in all the drama – spit-related and otherwise – around Harry Styles‘ latest movie Don’t worry honey, the singer-actor is all set for them to catch a glimpse of another film he is starring in.
On Wednesday (September 7), Prime Video revealed first official trailer for upcoming movies My policeman, starring Styles. Styles portrays Tom, an English policeman in the 1950s who lives with his loving wife Marion (Emma Corrin) and forms a close friendship with museum curator Patrick (David Dawson). And then that friendship becomes a little more than personal as Styles’ character questions his sexuality and falls in love with his friend.
What then follows is a series of vignettes in which Styles is seen kissing both Corrin and Dawson in increasingly steamy settings as his character struggles to come to terms with his burgeoning queerness. “You don’t know anything about being married, so stop telling me what to think about it,” he screams at his lover in a particularly emotional sequence.
The trailer then flashes forward to the late 1990s, where older versions of Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee) and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are all trying to heal from their tumultuous younger years – revealed in additional snippets that showing even more sensual moments as well as some violence from Styles’ character.
The new trailer comes amid a firestorm of off-screen drama surrounding the premiere of the pop star’s latest film Don’t worry honey. The latest crunch involved whether or not Styles spat on Chris Pine during a screening of the film at the Venice Film Festival. While some Twitter users were convinced the star spat on her co-star’s lap, a rep for Pine Told you no spat was hurled, calling the online speculation “a blatant attempt to create drama that simply doesn’t exist.”
My policeman will be released in selected cinemas in October. 21, before becoming available to stream on Amazon Prime Video on Nov. 4. Watch the full trailer below:
