Chris Evans & Ana de Armas Take Love on the Run in First “Ghosted” Trailer
You can’t ask for a better pairing for an action rom-com than Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, and that’s precisely what Apple TV’s Ghosted is offering. The twist is that Captain America himself isn’t the one doing the wooing and the rescuing; in fact, Evans plays a likable if “average” (despite still looking like, you know, Chris Evans) guy named Cole who falls in love with Sadie (de Armas) who seems equally enthused about the relationship until, per the title, she ghosts him.
But Cole isn’t going to give up just yet—the man is smitten—so he heads off to London to track the mysterious Sadie down. Cole describes it as a “grand romantic gesture,” eschewing some cold hard facts, like how he and Sadie barely know each other and that Sadie, you know, ghosted him. Cole arrives in London, believing that perhaps Sadie hasn’t ghosted him but simply doesn’t have an international calling plan (riiiiiight), and ends up getting kidnapped by some bad dudes intent on torturing him because, it seems, they believe he’s a spy.
Again, this isn’t Evans in Captain America-form, or Evans as the heartless assassin from Netflix’s The Gray Man, either. In Ghosted, he’s utterly helpless, and that’s when Sadie makes her grand re-entrance. It turns out she’s a spy herself, and before Cole can ask her out for a second date, he’s swept up in the world of international intrigue that is Sadie’s bread and butter.
You couldn’t ask for two more likable, talented stars than Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, and the trailer makes clear that director Dexter Fletcher knew what he had in his two leads. The script comes from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and Spider-Man: No Way Home scribe Chris McKenna. The supporting cast includes Amy Sedaris, Adrien Brody, Tim Blake Nelson, Tate Donovan, Marwan Kenzari, and Lizze Broadway. All these ingredients add up to what could be a delightful romp.
Check out the trailer below. Ghosted arrives on Apple TV on April 21.
