We never thought a collab between “Euphoria” and “The Crown” would result in a pro tennis tournament, but here we are. On Feb. 11, MGM announced that Zendaya and Josh O’Connor are starring side by side in Luca Guadagnino’s new romantic drama titled “Challengers.” The movie — which is written by playwright Justin Kuritzkes — is produced by Zendaya, Guadagnino, and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” producer Amy Pascal.

In the first trailer for the film, which MGM dropped on June 20, Zendaya appears as up-and-coming tennis star Tashi Duncan. She meets two other young athletes on the circuit, played by O’Connor and Faist, and they quickly get entangled in a threesome. When Tashi is injured, Faist’s character rushes to her side. She pivots her tennis career to become his coach — and wife. All is well until O’Connor’s Patrick comes back into their lives years later. The entire high-energy clip is soundtracked by Rihanna‘s “S&M.”
