A teaser trailer for a project featuring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o and Danny Glover has arrived from an unexpected place — the CEO of Sprint's Twitter account.
Though details are scarce, we do know that the film is in partnership with Sprint and will be streamed exclusively on Tidal. Sprint recently bought part of the streaming company and yesterday announced a free six-month membership to Tidal for all Sprint users— leading us to believe the project will drop sometime today.
Beyond the cast and the title, 4:44 , little is known about the movie's plot, though it does have an NC-17 rating meaning we can probably expect some nudity, swearing or violence, or a combination of all three. The teaser trailer doesn't exactly elucidate things either, the short clip entirely consists of a moody Mahershala Ali boxing.
There are rumors that the project is part of a tie in for JAY-Z’s next album, but its still unclear whether 4:44 is a music video, or a longer form project, or whether it's even related to JAY-Z at all. Check back for more info on the project as it comes in.
