Zendaya's new movie Challengers had got a steamy new trailer ahead of its upcoming release.

The film stars the Dune and Spider-Man actress opposite The Crown's Josh O'Connor and West Side Story's Mike Faist as tennis players who get involved in a love triangle. And things get intense, both in terms of emotions and on the court.

This new trailer treads a lot of the same ground as what we've seen previously, but dials up the sexiness with more of a focus on the personal dramas — and a remix of Nelly Furtado's 'Maneater.'

The film was originally set to be released last year, but was delayed due to the strikes in Hollywood which meant the cast couldn't do any promotion.

Speaking about the film last year, Zendaya described it as a pivotal moment in her career.

"I felt like it was a good step into a more, I guess you could say, 'grown-up' role and into that next phase," she explained while speaking to Elle.

"It was a little bit scary to take on, which I think is a good feeling. To be like, 'Ooh, can I do this?' You could run from that feeling and stay safe and comfortable, or you can go, 'You know what, f**k it.'"

Zendaya and O'Connor also previously opened up about the sex scenes as something viewers might not expect.

"The tennis is the sex," O'Connor told Empire. "Those moments are so sexy. The film is dealing with the tension before and after. The sex they're all desperate for is on the court."

Zendaya added: "What Luca's really good at is finding sensuality and desire. There's so much in just glances. The tension builds. Not having the release is a good thing sometimes."

Challengers will be released in the UK on April 26.
