We reported last July on "Southside With You," the upcoming John Legend-produced romance movie about Barack and Michelle Obama‘s first date. Miramax and Roadside Attractions released the movie’s first trailer, which you can see above. 

"Southside With You" depicts Michelle (Tika Sumpter) and Barack (Parker Sawyers) in 1989 as the two young lawyers walk around Chicago, visit an art museum, attend a community meeting and trade light-hearted jabs well before they became the couple they are today. The film hits theaters on August 26.
