The trailer for Zoë Kravitz's directorial debut, the psychological thriller “Blink Twice,” has been released. 

Tatum stars in the film as billionaire Slater King, who whisks two young women, Frida (Naomi Ackie) and Jess (Alia Shawkat), away for a luxurious island getaway.

But as the trailer reveals, paradise takes a dark turn when their dream vacation becomes a fight for survival.

“Blink Twice” also marks the real-life meet-cute story of Kravitz and Tatum

Kravitz cast her fiancé in the lead role in 2021, and their working relationship blossomed into a romance. In an interview with GQ in November 2022, Kravitz credits Tatum for his unwavering support during filming.

“Whether it was making me tea or pouring me a drink or going to whip someone into shape or whatever,” she said. “He really was my protector and it was really wonderful and sweet. I think if you can do something like that together, it's a good test. And we came out even stronger.”

Kravitz also spoke about their shared passion for film, “We love to watch a film and break it down and talk about it and challenge each other.”

Even  Zoë's dad, Lenny Kravitz, seems to be a fan of the union.  In a recent appearance on Sherri, Lenny gave his seal of approval to Channing, calling him a “great guy” with “manners and class.” 

He also highlighted the perfect timing of their relationship, suggesting they both came into each other's lives at a point where they were ready for a relationship.

“Blink Twice” hits theaters on August 23rd.
