By now, movies should surely have taught us all that going to remote tropical paradises with mysterious billionaires should be right up there on the travel danger list with, say, flying Ryanair. Yet still people keep accepting those invitations. And we suppose when the person doing the asking is Channing Tatum in full Chanrisma mode, it's hard to turn it down, but Naomi Ackie finds that out to her cost in the first trailer for Blink Twice, which you can find below…

With Zoë Kravitz making her directorial debut here (working from a script she wrote with ET Feigenbaum, which was formerly titled Pussy Island), the film finds Ackie as cocktail waitress Frida, who meets tech billionaire Slater King (Tatum). There's an instant connection and soon he's whisking her and her best pal Jess (Alia Shawkat) away to his private island to party with his loopy trustafarian friends.

Initially, it all seems wonderful — sun soaked days, party-filled nights. But then strange things start to happen. Jess becomes concerned that there is something very wrong with the island paradise… and seemingly vanishes with no one besides Frida having memory of her. Can Frida figure out what's going on before it's too late?

Kravitz' cast here also includes Christian Slater, Simon Rex, Adria Arjona, Kyle MacLachlan, Haley Joel Osment and Geena Davis, and Blink Twice will be partying it up in UK cinemas on 23 August.
