Donald Glover and Rihanna Made a Secret Movie and Here's How to Watch It For Free

You won't want to miss this

You might want to cancel your plans for Saturday because Donald Glover has a very exciting surprise in store.

The Atlantastar teamed up with Rihanna to film a secret movie in Havana, Cuba, last year, and now it's about to drop online for free. Guava Island, which also stars Letitia Wright (Black Panther) and Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones), was written by his brother Stephen Glover and directed by Hiro Murai, both of whom have previously worked with Glover on Atlanta. Murai was also behind the lens for Childish Gambino's groundbreaking "This Is America" music video.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Donald Glover said of the project, "I'm really humbled having the opportunity to present something this timely and timeless. Between Rihanna and the people of Cuba, this is one of my favorite projects I've ever worked on."

Per Variety, Guava Island was inspired by films like City of God and Purple Rain and will be an hourlong thriller about Glover's character attempting to throw a music festival on his island.

The film will debut at Coachella on Thursday, a day before Childish Gambino's performance at the festival, and will subsequently be available for streaming on Amazon on Saturday, April 13 starting at 12:01 a.m. PST. The service will open it up to non-subscribers for the first 18 hours at amazon.com/guavaisland.
