The first trailer for Apple TV+‘s Ghosted from director Dexter Fletcher, starring Chris Evans and Ana de Armas officially released. We couldn’t be more excited to see the duo back together for the third time, but now as romantic leads! After months of on-set images and tweets from Fletcher, they finally delivered with a trailer full of romance, comedy, and intense action.
It’s also “about damn time” we see Evans star again in a romantic-comedy!
What is Ghosted?
From the opening moments of the trailer, Ghosted seems like your typical romantic-comedy with Evans and de Armas playing lovers in a passionate story, but it quickly becomes clear that the film is much more than that.
Chris Evans plays a loveable, rural city dork named Cole, who falls for Ana de Armas’ Sadie, following a montage of their first date. Cole eventually takes it upon himself to travel to London, in what he hopes to be a romantic gesture, to track Sadie after she “ghosted” him. While in London, Cole gets entangled into a game of espionage, which leads him to discover the shocking truth about Sadie – she’s a secret CIA agent.
Before they’re able to decide on a second date, Cole and Sadie have to team up on an international adventure to save the world. As the trailer unfolds, we see the ‘Captain America‘ actor embracing his hero skills along with, de Armas’ action packed abilities. Action roles are becoming more and more familiar to her after starring in No Time To Die and The Gray Man as well as the upcoming John Wick spinoff movie Ballerina.
The cast and crew
Dexter Fletcher, best known for his work on the Elton John biopic Rocketman, directs the romantic-comedy action-adventure film.

When does Ghosted release?
After waiting months for a trailer, anticipation for this film could not be any higher. It’s intriguing to see Chris Evans play a damsel in distress and Ana de Armas play his hero. We only hope that we don’t “ghost” them when the movie comes out, and we have one great rollercoaster ride complete with romance, comedy, action, and adventure.
Ghosted streams exclusively on Apple TV+ on April 21. Let us know your thoughts on the trailer on our socials!
