Deep Water, starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in lead roles, finally has a release platform and date. The erotic thriller will be streamed on Hulu in the USA, while Amazon Prime has bagged the rights to release it overseas on March 18. It was supposed to get a theatrical release on January 14 this year but was later pulled out from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures theatrical schedule.

The teaser, released on 14 February, shows Melinda (de Armas) asking Affleck’s Vic Van Allen “Do you love me?” and ends with her warning Vic with “there’s something wrong with me.” They are a married couple but have fallen out of love and start playing mind games that start hurting people around them fatally.
