Challengers will enjoy a theatrical release in the United States on April 12, 2024. The film was initially slated to be released in September 2023, and had dropped its trailer accordingly on June 23.

Contents of the trailer and plot of Challengers

Challengers features Zendaya, who is currently enjoying the high of doing projects like Dune 2 and Euphoria, as Tashi, a young Tennis prodigy. Mike Faist, of West Side Story fame stars as Art, her husband, and The Crown actor Josh O’Connor as Patrick, Tasha’s ex-boyfriend and Art’s ex bestie. The trailer of Challengers showcases Tasha as an ambitious and highly passionate tennis player who plays like a dream.

As her wings are just beginning to aid her flight, she soars and frolics with fellow mediocre tennis players, bestie duo Art and Pat. After having a sizzling night of copulation together, the three continue spending time together, with Art falling first for Tasha, but the latter having little concern for matters like love.

But when Tasha ends up badly injuring her foot for life, she has to forsake her dream and retire from playing. With Art by her side, with almost brutal revenge, Tasha becomes a highly coveted tennis coach and makes her husband to be a World Slam Champion. But when he gets stuck on a losing streak, he enters a low-level pro tournament, a Challenger event.

And there his path crosses with Patrick, literally, on and off-court. Now it is up to Art to win both the game and his marriage, as his relationship with his strong wife has been dwindling for a long time and nothing would quite set fire to it like an old flame who plays a better game than her husband.
