DUBAI: Netflix released the trailer for the Arabic adaption of the hit Italian feature “Perfect Strangers,” set for release on Jan. 20, on Thursday.
The trailer shows seven close friends who get together for dinner, and decide to play a game that involves placing their cell phones on the dinner table and agreeing to share every call, text and voice message as it comes.
What starts out as fun quickly unravels as untold secrets reveal more than expected.
The Arabic version, titled “As-hab wala A’az,” features a pan-Arab cast, including Lebanese award-winning director and actor Nadine Labaki, Egyptian star Mona Zaki, Jordanian-Egyptian icon Eyad Nassar, and Lebanese actors Georges Khabbaz and Adel Karam, Fouad Yammine and Diamand Abou Abboud.
The stars of the movie, which is filmmaker Wissam Smayra’s directorial debut, quickly took to Instagram to tease fans with the trailer on their profiles.
“I wonder what this moon is hiding,” wrote Nassar on his Instagram, while Yammine said: “In one week!”
“Perfect Stangers” has had 18 remakes around the world, including France, Germany, Spain, Greece and South Korea.
