Netflix has released the trailer for upcoming romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe, starring and co-written by Ali Wong and Randall Park.
The plot follows two childhood friends who meet again after not speaking for 15 years. Sasha (Wong) is now a successful celebrity chef and he (Park) is a musician that works for his dad and still lives at home. So, will they or won’t they?
The two leads are funny in their own right, so having them together here certainly bodes well. The old-school trailer showcases some strong chemistry between Wong and Park, and confidence in its light-hearted vibe. This could be a comfy winner. And yes, the fact there’s a surprise appearance by a certain ass-kicker at the end of the trailer furthers our anticipation.
This is the first feature for director Nahnatchka Khan, whose credits include episodes of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Fresh Off the Boat, the latter starring Park. Wong and Park wrote the screenplay with Michael Golamco (Grimm).
Always Be My Maybe will be hitting Netflix on May 31st. In the US, the film will be getting a limited theatrical release from the 29th.
Synopsis for Always Be My Maybe:
Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal — a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.
