The trailer for “Southside With You”, the upcoming historical romcom (romcom? bioromcom?) about Barack and Michelle Obama’s “epic first date across Chicago’s south side,” was released today, and it looks incredibly charming. Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyer star as the First Couple when they were just a Potential Couple—they see Do the Right Thing, they talk about how they fit into the world, and (most importantly) they have their first kiss after sharing an ice cream cone.
“Southside With You” hits theaters on August 26, and is already being praised by critics. Trump Tower With Me, the follow-up about future First Couple Donald and Melania, will be released in 2024.
