Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock features in the first look at festive rom-com Boxing Day, which marks her movie debut.

Boxing Day finds Ameen playing a man returning from the US with his American fiancée (How to Get Away with Murder's Aja Naomi King) in tow, to spend the holidays with his British-Caribbean family.

Christmas usually signals chaos on the big screen (and in real life, let's be honest), but the movie has also been described as a celebration of love and familial bonds.

Writer/director/leading man Ameen previously commented: "It is such an honour to be teaming up with Warner Bros Pictures, Film4 and BFI to bring Black British Culture to the world in this universal holiday rom-com.

"It's long been a dream of mine to capture films that reflect the wonderfully multi-cultural city that raised me while sharing stories from the diary of my life."

Boxing Day is scheduled to hit the big screen this coming Christmas.
