In a scene shown in the trailer, both friends, Patrick and Art, are seen trying to seduce female actress Tashi Donaldson because both friends are invited by Tashi to come to her bed and kiss her.

As per Vanity Fair Reports, About that scene mentioned above shown in the trailer, Josh O’Connor has revealed what the filming of the scene was like, and what was planned and improvised to film this scene, O’Connor Said:-

“Luca had a very clear idea of what happens on the bed,”

“The idea of me and Mike, with Zendaya in the middle—this idea that it’s kissing, kissing, and then it turns into this three-way kiss—and then suddenly Mike and I are kissing. That was very clear. We all kind of figured out, how are we going to do this? How does this work?”

The actor further added:-

“There is an element of improvisation with it. It was fairly organic,”

“We did little things, like, when they’re sitting on the floor and she goes onto the bed, I was up in a flash and not holding back. That came from us knowing our characters well, and knowing the dynamics between the three of us.”
