After several major delays, Challengers is finally hitting the theaters this spring, and MGM just created some more hype for this film with a new trailer. Zendaya is gearing up to serve some major drama as a tennis pro-turned-coach in Luca Guadagnino’s next film.

The new trailer for Challengers opens with Zendaya’s Tashi Duncan on top of the world, ready to take the tennis world by storm. Everything goes upside down after she suffers a career-ending injury, which forces her to leave the tennis court behind and turn to coaching.

Years later, Tashi is helping her husband Art (Mike Faist) overcome a losing streak by signing him up for a Challenger event. To make the whole ordeal even worse, he’ll have to come face to face with his former best friend Patrick (Josh O’Connor)… who also happens to be Tashi’s ex-boyfriend.

Challengers was initially set for the world premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year, but Amazon MGM decided to pull it from the festival in the face of the SAG-AFTRA strike.

This project was later hit several delays before being set for an April 26 release date. MGM will release it in the United States, while Warner Bros. Pictures will handle the international distribution.
