“Why are you the only man who wants to stay with me?” Hulu has revealed a teaser trailer on Valentine’s Day for the psychological thriller Deep Water, about a married couple who have fallen out of love. The film stars Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas and is skipping theaters entirely, heading straight to Hulu this March. This is the project when Affleck & de Armas first met and started dating, even though their romance as seen through the gossip rags seems a lot like the plot of the film anyway. Their loveless marriage is held together only by a precarious arrangement whereby, in order to avoid the messiness of divorce, Melinda is allowed to take any number of lovers as long as she does not desert her family. But her husband becomes a suspect when her lovers start showing up dead. Is he the one with a problem or is something else going on? The cast also includes Tracy Letts, Rachel Blanchard, Lil Rel Howery, Finn Wittrock, Jacob Elordi, Dash Mihok, and Kristen Connolly. This is one suy teaser, oh my!! Don’t even need to see more than this.
