Zendaya Gives Fans an Intimate Look Behind the Scenes: Exclusive Video Diaries from the Set of Luca Guadagnino’s 'CHALLENGERS'

In Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming film, “Challengers,” viewers can brace themselves for a sizzling love triangle that transcends the boundaries of both the tennis court and personal relationships. The recently released trailer teases an intense storyline involving Tashi, played by Zendaya, navigating the complexities of love and competition.

As Tashi’s husband, Art, portrayed by Mike Faist, faces a formidable opponent in rising tennis star Patrick, played by Josh O’Connor, the film promises more than just a sports showdown. The stakes are heightened as Patrick turns out to be Tashi’s former flame and Art’s former best friend, turning the competition into a battleground of emotions and unresolved history.

Adding an intriguing layer to “Challengers” is the real-life connection of screenwriter Justin Kuritzkes to his partner, Celine Song, currently nominated for two Oscars for her love triangle drama, “Past Lives.” Audiences can anticipate a captivating exploration of personal experiences and emotions, with “Challengers” taking a potentially sexier and sweatier approach compared to its predecessor.

The film not only explores the dynamics of love and competition but also marks a significant collaboration between Kuritzkes and Guadagnino. Their partnership extends beyond “Challengers” as they are set to work together on the upcoming adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ novel, “Queer.” Additionally, the reunion of Guadagnino with composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, known for their work on “Bones and All,” adds another layer of anticipation for the film’s soundtrack.

A noteworthy aspect of “Challengers” is Zendaya’s debut as a producer, following her lockdown project, “Malcolm & Marie.” The film’s delay, attributed to last year’s actors’ strike, has only heightened expectations. Originally slated to open the 2023 Venice Film Festival, “Challengers” is now set for a theatrical release on April 26, 2024, promising audiences an intense and visually captivating cinematic experience.

For a glimpse into the world of passion, competition, and unresolved emotions, watch the enticing trailer for “Challengers” below. Get ready to witness the ultimate he said/she said realness on and off the tennis court.
