What does the trailer show?

The brand-new trailer sees Susan and Christopher arrive back in the UK and immediately picked up by police.

Christopher urges them “tell their story, no need to make anything up”.

But as they’re both held for questioning, Susan’s overactive imagination takes over.

And as time goes by, the trailer shows the pair in scenes from classic movies as real life and imagination clash.
