The first trailer for the romantic comedy The Weekend is now available for our viewing!

The movie stars SNL alum Sasheer Zamata as Zadie, a stand-up comedian who takes a road trip with her ex-boyfriend, Bradford (Tone Bell), to his mother’s bed and breakfast. As if that wasn’t much of a challenge, joining the ride is Margo (DeWanda Wise), Bradford’s current girlfriend. Y’lan Noel and Kym Whitley also star.

Directed by Stella Meghie, the film premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival office to a positive review. In S&A’s review of the film, Aramide A. Tinbu stated that “Meghie and the cast’s ability to tap into a great deal of humor with a whole lot of energy helps to minimize the cringe-worthy aspect of  some of the unfortunate circumstances the characters find themselves in.”

The Weekend premieres in a limited theatrical release on Sept 13. It will be available on demand the same day.

Watch the first trailer below.
