Donald Glover’s Guava Island Finally Comes Out On Saturday
Donald Glover’s highly-anticipated film, Guava Island, will be available on Amazon Prime this Saturday, April 13. The multi-talented creator announced the film’s release on his Twitter page, also announcing a show where he would be premiering the movie for free this weekend.
This movie has been on everyone’s radar since that famous picture of Rihanna and Donald Glover together started to float around the internet. Of course, people were hoping the photo meant a music collaboration was coming from the two, but a movie is definitely the next best thing.
The film, which has been described as being a “tropical thriller,” was shot in Havana, Cuba. The movie is about “a local musician [who] is determined to throw a festival for everyone to enjoy.”
Guava Island stars both Donald Glover and Rihanna and was written by Stephen Glover, inspired by the movies City of God and Prince’s Purple Rain. Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright also stars in the movie, which was directed by Hiro Murai.
Guava Island will become available on the streaming platform starting at 12:01 a.m. PST on Saturday, April 13. According to reports from Vanity Fair, the film will be free to watch for 18 hours. The film will also be live-streamed on Coachella’s YouTube Channel and on Amazon’s Twitch page at 5 P.M. on Saturday.
