Playing Chris Evans and Jenny Slate Get Emotional in New 'Gifted' Trailer

Chris Evans and Jenny Slate are quickly becoming one of Hollywood's favorite star couples, and the trailer for the movie that might have sparked their romance has finally been released.

The dynamic duo co-star in Gifted, which tells the story of Frank Adler (Evans), who is doing his best to raise his precocious, math-genius niece Mary (Mckenna Grace), after his sister's death.

Mary forms a bond with her grade school teacher, Bonnie (Slate), who recognizes her potential and encourages Frank to let Mary explore her talents. Meanwhile, Frank finds himself locked in a custody battle with his mother, Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), who thinks Frank is holding her grandchild back from intellectual greatness and is unfit to raise a little girl.

In the few short moments Evans and Slate share the screen in this brief new look, their chemistry is immediately apparent.

The pair made their first official public appearance at the New York premiere of her animated comedy The Secret Life of Pets back in June, and the two couldn't have looked cuter together.
