The Lovebirds Trailer Starring Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae

thelovebirds

Last year’s Kumail Nanjiani / Dave Bautista comedy Stuber was a bit of a disappointment for Fox, not exactly a bomb per se, but it made just $32 million worldwide on a $16 million budget. Now Nanjiani is returning this year with a similar sort of action-comedy but this time he is bringing Issa Rae (Insecure) and The Big Sick director Michael Showalter with him. The Lovebirds finds him and Rae playing a couple on the verge of breaking up who witness a murder and get pulled into a criminal conspiracy. It definitely resembles Game Night and Netflix’s Murder Mystery, both of which were big hits in their own right. The Lovebirds will premiere at SXSW before hitting theatres on April 3rd. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

    The leads don’t seem to have any chemistry together. Crossing my fingers as I def like Nanjani.
