Gifted: The Movie That Brought Chris Evans And Jenny Slate Together [Trailer]

Ever wondered how couple Chris Evans and Jenny Slate started and crossed paths?

Before walking the red carpet together as a couple, Chris Evans and Jenny Slate were just two Hollywood stars working together on a motion picture.

The unique venture was director Marc Webb’s upcoming drama titled Gifted.

The official trailer released on Tuesday morning shows Frank Adler (Evans) fight for the custody of his deceased sister’s daughter, Mary. Slate plays the role of Mary’s teacher who cannot help but notice the young girl’s exceptional intelligence that lead to a big debate.

“I think your niece may be gifted,” Slate tells Evans while suggesting a school for gifted students. “I promised my sister I’d give Mary a normal life,” Evans replied.

Along with Chris Evans and Jenny Slate, cast members also include Octavia Spencer, Lindsay Duncan and newcomer McKenna Grace.

For those who are unaware of Chris Evans and Jenny Slate’s relationship, E! News confirmed back in May that the two was indeed a couple. Additionally, before the public found out about their relationship status, the pair shared their first impressions on each other on Anna Faris’ Unqualified podcast.

“I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris. I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, Well, I don’t know him. He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?” Slate said. “[But] the first night that we hung out, I was like, ‘Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.’”

Chris added, “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.”

After that, Chris Evans and Jenny Slate made their red carpet debut as a couple in New York at the premiere of the animated film The Secret Life of Pets.

The Secret Life of Pets was fantastic! @jennyslate was a personal favorite,” Chris tweeted.

Gifted will hit theaters on April 12, 2017. In the meantime, watch the trailer here:
