It’s the movie that set the stage for Kravitz and Tatum’s meet-cute.

We’re all about to be able to take in the project that made Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum a bona fide Hollywood It couple. Blink Twice, out in theaters on Aug. 23finally dropped its first trailer and it has everything audiences need to get excited: namely, a shirtless Channing Tatum. The film, which is billed as a horror but doesn’t quite look like a traditional slasher film, is Kravtiz’s directorial debut, but she also co-wrote the movie, which also stars Naomi Ackie, Christian Slater, Simon Rex, Adria Arjona, Kyle MacLachlan, Haley Joel Osment, Geena Davis, and Alia Shawkat.

No one wants this trip to end, but as strange things start to happen, Frida begins to question her reality. There is something wrong with this place. She’ll have to uncover the truth if she wants to make it out of this party alive.”

Speaking about the movie’s title change—it was called Pussy Island when it was in productionKravitz said it was a reflection of the time period of the film and wasn’t meant to be provocative.

“The title came from that world. The title is the seed of the story,” she told The Wall Street Journal. “It represents this time where it would be acceptable for a group of men to call a place that, and the illusion that we’re out of that time now.”

In the same interview, she mentioned why she chose Tatum as her leading man. Kravitz explained that she “wanted to find someone who hadn’t played a dark character before, because I think that’s exciting to watch someone who’s mostly played boy next door, good guy, love interest, all of that.” 

“I felt, even from afar, before I knew him, that he was a feminist and that he wasn’t afraid of exploring that darkness,” she continued. “Because he knows he’s not that. That’s why I was drawn to him and wanted to meet with him. And I was right.”

Tatum echoed her sentiment in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying that the role is “someone a little darker than I’ve ever played,” adding that the experience was “scary.”

“We are definitely exploring some very uncomfortable themes, and, I don’t want to give away too much, but I’ve definitely never played a character like [this],” he said. “It was scary to play, because it’s definitely going to be a talk piece when it comes out. I think people are really gonna want to talk about it. That’s kind of the point, in a way. It’s meant to unsettle you.”
