The first Green Book movie trailer has arrived online following the news that it will receive its world premiere at next month’s Toronto International Film Festival. This looks to be a slight departure for director Peter Farrelly (yes, the Peter Farrelly behind the likes of Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary), and we LIKE it.

Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star iin the film, which is set to roll into U.S. cinemas in November, and then UK cinemas next February. Awards contender?

In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
