Get ready to see Nicole Kidman steal the show as Lucille Ball in the upcoming Aaron Sorkin-directed film Being the Ricardos!

On Tuesday, Amazon Studios debuted the first anticipated trailer for the movie which follows late comedy icon Lucille Ball (Kidman) and her husband Desi Arnaz (played by, Javier Bardem).

The trailer mostly teases Kidman's transformation with the Oscar-winning shown mostly from a distance or with her back turned towards the camera. The big reveal comes near the end as Kidman recreates Ball's iconic grape stomping scene from the hit sitcom, I Love Lucy.

The teaser also provides a glimpse at the biopic’s star-studded cast, including the aforementioned Javier Bardem, as well as Tony Hale, J.K. Simmons, and Jake Lacy.

Sorkin's script reportedly takes place over one week in the lives of Ball and Arnaz, depicting both the production of the famous I Love Lucy episode, "Lucy's Italian Movie," which aired in 1956 — as well as an off-camera personal crisis that has the potential to upend their status as Hollywood's reigning power couple.
