A surprise trailer has arrived for Donald Glover and Rihanna's new movie Guava Island, which they were rumoured to be filming in Cuba back in August.

In August Rihanna and Donald Glover posed for a picture and Cuban magazine Vistar hinted that the pair were in Cuba to film a new movie called Guava Island.

Guava Island was also rumoured to be directed by Hiro Murai, who is responsible for Gambino's "This Is America" music video, and Gambino's rap comedy series Atlanta.

Turns out that Vistar was correct, and the first trailer has been revealed at Glover’s curated Pharos festival in New Zealand.

The trailer even goes as far to say Guava Island is a "Donald Glover film", and reveals Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie will also be appearing in the movie.

Rihanna's role isn't her first on the big screen, having starred in Oceans Eight, Valerian, and Battleship.

Glover was expected to perform as his moniker Childish Gambino in London earlier this month, but has rescheduled the event to 24 March 2019 due to a foot injury he sustained after a slip on stage.
