Release date: April 5

The romantic comedy action-adventure film stars Chris Evans as Cole, a regular dude who falls head over heels for Sadie (Ana de Armas), who turns out to be a secret agent. Before they can decide on a second date, the pair are swept away on an international adventure to save the world. Fun fact, Scarlett Johansson was originally cast to play Sadie before scheduling conflicts got in the way. But we are sure Ana de Armas will do a great job too.
