WATCH: Selena Gomez’ Trans Gangster Film ‘Emilia Pérez’ Reveals Trailer

Emilia Perez

Selena Gomez’ trans gangster musical film ‘Emilia Pérez’ has released its thrilling trailer and Selenators are so hyped!

The former Disney actress stars as Jessi, the wife of trans cartel leader Emilia Pérez (played by Karla Sofia Gascón) in the Cannes breakout Spanish-language musical.

The trailer follows Mexico City lawyer Rita (Zoe Saldaña) who was entangled with cartel leader Manitas, also known as Emilia Pérez (Gascón), who made an unusual request to help the gang leader escape Mexico with her children and wife, Jessi (Gomez) so she could seek gender-affirming surgery in order to be able to live as the woman she believes she is.

The trailer is dark, gritty, and promises some amazing songs through its musical numbers, which will surely pique Gomez’ fans’ interest as this might be one of her last forrays into music as the singer announced that her upcoming album might be her final one.

After its release at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18 where the film received a standing ovation for over 10 minutes (the longest thus far this year), it also received a favorable Rotten Tomatoes score of 86% as of this writing.

Rolling Stone also called it “one of those films in which description on a page can’t do justice to the delirium onscreen.”

Jacques Audiard, known for directing ‘Paris’ and ‘13th District’, wrote and helmed the musical crime dramedy.

‘Emilia Pérez’ will hit French cinemas on August 21 before being distributed by Netflix in the US and UK which will be announced at a later date.
