Romantic comedy Red, White & Royal Blue lands on Amazon Prime Video next month, and the first trailer has landed.
Matthew Lopez is an award winning playwright, his 2019 play The Inheritance is the most honored play of a generation, sweeping the Tony, Olivier, Critic’s Choice and a plethora of other awards.
He now makes his directorial debut with romantic comedy Red, White & Royal Blue. The synopsis reads as follows…
Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez), the son of the first woman President of the United States (Uma Thurman), and Britain’s Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) have a lot in common: stunning good looks, undeniable charisma, international popularity… and a total disdain for each other. Separated by an ocean, their long-running feud hasn’t really been an issue, until a disastrous—and very public—altercation at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. Going into damage control mode, their powerful families and respective handlers force the two rivals into a staged “truce.” But as Alex and Henry’s icy relationship unexpectedly begins to thaw into a tentative friendship, the friction that existed between them sparks something deeper than they ever expected.
The cast is completed by Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Stephen Fry, Ellie Bamber, Thomas Flynn, Malcolm Atobrah, and Akshay Khanna.
Lopez directed the film and co-wrote the script with Ted Malawer, based on the novel of the same name by Casey McQuiston.
Red, White & Royal Blue streams on Amazon Prime Video from the 11th August.
