Since Harry Styles was announced as the star of gay love story My Policeman, stans have been clamouring for a sneak preview of the film, lining the streets of the set in Brighton. Now, we finally have an official first look at Styles as the titular bobby, Tom Burgess, with the release of a teaser trailer.
Also starring Emma Corrin as Burgess’ wife, schoolteacher Marion Burgess, alongside David Dawson as museum curator Patrick Hazelwood (with whom he has a secret affair), My Policeman revolves around their love triangle in 1950s Britain, where homosexuality was still illegal. Some scenes will also fast-forward to the 90s, with the older characters portrayed by Gina McKee, Linus Roache, and Rupert Everett.
In the new teaser trailer from the film, we see Tom and Patrick share knowing glances over a Turner painting, Styles throwing it back to the five-inch inseam summer of 2020 on the beach (need we say more?), and the inevitable fallout of the affair.
My Policeman is based on Bethan Roberts’ 2012 novel of the same name, written by acclaimed screenwriter Ron Nyswaner, and directed by Michael Grandage. The film is set to debut in cinemas on October 21, and hit Prime Video on November 4. Of course, if you can’t wait that long to watch Harry Styles take his clothes off in the 1950s, then there’s also Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darlingto look forward to.
