Film Released Next Week

HBO Max has released a trailer for comedy-heist Locked Down which stars Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor who hatch a plan to steal a diamond during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hathaway and Ejiofor portray a couple ready to separate, but the pair must continue to live in the same house together due to a mandatory lockdown measure that is put into place.

The couple eventually put aside their differences and team up in order to secure a diamond worth millions from luxury department store Harrods.

Here’s the trailer –

The official HBO Max synopsis reads –

“Just as they decide to separate, Linda (Hathaway) and Paxton (Ejiofor) find life has other plans when they are stuck at home in a mandatory lockdown. Co-habitation is proving to be a challenge, but fueled by poetry and copious amounts of wine, it will bring them closer together in the most surprising way.”

Coming from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, the film is directed by Doug Liman and features an impressive cast list of Ben Kingsley, Mindy Kaling, Ben Stiller, Stephen Merchant, Mark Gatiss, Lucy Boynton, Dulé Hill and Marek Larwood alongside Hathaway and Ejiofor.

Locked Down will premiere on HBO Max in the US on January 14th. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
