Chris Evans S Movie With His Irl Girlfriend Drops First Trailer
Chris Evans ’s newest film doesn’t involve civil wars, crime fighting, or shields — but it does involve a super uncle.
In Gifted , which dropped its first trailer on Tuesday (November 1), Evans plays a devoted uncle to niece Mary (Mckenna Grace), whom he is raising as his own. When it’s revealed that Mary is a genius, the girl’s grandmother (Lindsay Duncan) comes out of the woodwork and dives headfirst into a viscous custody battle with her own son.
Jenny Slate plays Mary’s teacher and, coincidentally, is Evans’s real-life girlfriend. (See? Love isn’t dead just yet.) The couple was confirmed by People in May and met while filming Gifted . Evans said on Anna Faris ’s podcast, Unqualified , in April that he and Slate were the same animal. Whatever that means.
Check out the sweet, sappy trailer below.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7CAjpdRaXU
Gifted premieres in theaters April 12, 2017 .
