Well, it's about time we had some exciting news for Pride month and now we can well and truly break out the rainbow confetti. After what has been a lengthy campaign of speculation, and many blurry behind the scenes stills, we finally have our first official look at Harry Styles and Emma Corrin's queer cop drama My Policeman.
Announced in 2020, the Amazon Prime film was originally slated to star Lily James in the co-lead role which Corrin has since taken over. While COVID-19 caused considerable delay the film is finally seeing the light of say with an official theatrical release date. And for fellow Style's rabid fans, the tail end of the year looks to be an exciting one with the promise of not one but two film roles in close conjunction. We've spoken here before about our pending excitement for Don't Worry Darling, but what else do we know about this latest morsel of Michael Grandage's queer period drama?
Here is your first look at the film.
In an exclusive from Vanity Fair, two newly-released stills have dropped with Patrick showing Marion and Tom some art at a gallery, Harry looking every bit the suave gent of the era.
