In the beginning of 2020, we all entered lockdown due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. This led to a toilet paper shortage, people getting into Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and booze. Lots and lots of booze to beat back that good old existential dread.
You were also locked into a place for two weeks with the people inside of it. After, divorce rates and break-ups did go up.
In the trailer for HBO Max’s Locked Down, we meet a couple (Anne Hathaway, Chiwetel Ejiofor) on the verge of a split trapped in lockdown in the early pandemic days in London. There’s a lot of wine. Toilet paper being a rare commodity. Also employee furloughs and firings. So what better way to stick it to the man, so to speak, then mount a heist of a 3 million pound diamond to spice up your failing relationship?
Makes perfect sense.
Locked Down is directed by Doug Liman (Mr & Mrs Smith) and also stars Ben Kingsley and Mindy Kaling.
The film hits HBO Max on Jan 14.
