Hulu has released the first Deep Water teaser trailer for 20th Century Studios’ upcoming psychological thriller film, starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck and Golden Globe nominee Ana de Armas. Originally slated for a theatrical release, it will now be making its U.S. debut on March 18, 2022, exclusively on Hulu.
The Deep Water teaser trailer which you can check out below along with its key art post, offers us our first look at Affleck and De Armas as we get a preview of their characters’ intimate and unusual relationship.
Deep Water is directed by Fatal Attraction filmmaker Adrian Lyne from a script co-written by Zack Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (Euphoria), based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1957 novel of the same name. It stars Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas, Lil Rel Howery, Jacob Elordi, Finn Wittrock, Rachel Blanchard, Tracy Letts, Kristen Connolly, and Dash Mihok.
The film centers on Vic and Melinda Van Allen, who are an attractive married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface facade of American suburban life.
Garrett Basch and Steven Zaillian are executive producing the film along with Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady, Anthony Katagas, and Ben Forkner. Arnon Milchon is serving as a producer.
Lyne last directed the 2002 drama Unfaithful, starring Diane Lane and Richard Gere, and made a reputation with steamy erotic films such as Indecent Proposal, Fatal Attraction, and 9 1/2 Weeks.
