Donald Glover And Rihanna's Film Has A Release Date

There hasn’t been any promo for the movie, but some stealth marketing appears to be underway.

Guava Island, the film featuring two of the most adored stars on Earth, is set for release very, very soon. 

Hype around the film, in which Donald Glover stars alongside Rihanna, started to build when a trailer was captured by an audience member at New Zealand’s Pharos Festival back in November.

Although unclear, far removed and altogether a rather unsatisfying watch, international intrigue ensued – largely as a result of Rihanna's Navy and Glover's wide-ranging reams of superfans. 

Fast-forward five months later and advertisements for the film have started to appear on Spotify.

“Guava Island, Saturday Night April 13” read one digital billboard, while Glover sings “I’ll see you at the show everyone” to the sound of his acoustic guitar in the background. If this is indeed the case, the project will premiere the day after Glover headlines Coachella as Childish Gambino.

The film – directed by Hiro Murai of Atlanta and This Is America fame – is set in Havana and also stars Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie as well as Glover and Rihanna, who plays Glover's love interest. 

In the opening clip, Glover strums his guitar and ponders his surroundings, saying: “We live in paradise, but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here."

From then on, one should expect vibrancy, atmosphere and movement-heavy cavorts through the Cuban capital. 

Glean what you want from the grainy video above, and tune into the respective celebrities' social channels for more insights into the timings of the launch on April 13.
