THE first trailer for a new LGBTQ+ drama featuring singer Harry Styles has been released.

Set in Brighton in the 1950s, My Policeman sees the musician play the role of Tom Burgess, a policeman who is secretly gay at a time when homosexuality was illegal.

The trailer sees Styles’ character Tom share a kiss with his on-screen wife Marion at their wedding, while also appearing troubled as he struggles to come to terms with his own sexuality.

The film sees Tom embark on a romance with museum curator Patrick Hazelwood, who is seen in the trailer sitting next to Tom in a cinema, as well as lovingly caressing Tom’s face.

The Palace Pier also makes an appearance, with Tom and Marion playing traditional funfair games at the Brighton landmark, with Tom also sitting on Brighton beach looking off into the distance at sunset.

Marion is also seen in the trailer looking upset and ripping up an item of clothing, with a policeman’s uniform also appearing on a makeshift bonfire.

Filming for the drama, produced by Amazon Studios, took place last year across the city, with shooting taking place at the Royal Pavilion and the Palace Pier, as well as at locations in Saltdean, Peacehaven and Newhaven.

The film, streaming worldwide from November 4, is based on a 2012 novel by Bethan Robert of the same name and sees Harry Styles act alongside Emma Corrin and David Dawson - star of BBC crime drama Luther and ITV’s Coronation Street.

Other notable cast members include Linus Roache, Rupert Everett and Line of Duty star Gina McKee.

Known for being one of the most successful members of boyband One Direction, the 28-year-old made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war film Dunkirk.

My Policeman is set for release in cinemas in the UK and the US on October 21.
