Zachary Quinto and Lukas Gage team up in the raunchy trailer for the chaotic new gay sex comedy film Down Low.

Quinto plays Gary, a closeted divorcee who has a sexual awakening when gay masseur Cameron (played by The White Lotus’ Gage) offers him a happy ending.

But when Cameron learns more about his middle-aged man’s repressed life, he’s determined to help the older man to help the man make up for lost time and help him have a real sexual experience.

Cameron invites a third over to Gary’s via hookup app Plungr. Unfortunately, things take a turn when Sammy (Sebastian Arroyo) arrives.

During the hookup, Sammy has second thoughts and falls out a second-storey window.

Gary and Cameron suddenly have a dead body to deal with, as well as a nosy, horny elderly neighbour and a dark web intruder.

“I am really glad I met you, even if multiple are dead because of it,” Gary eventually says to Cameron in the wild red-band trailer.

Lukas Gage co-wrote the Down Low screenplay

Lukas Gage co-wrote the script for Down Low. He recalled the project started as an “unhinged” riff on Pretty Woman‘s infamously darker original screenplay.

“Originally, we really wanted a fast-paced, fucked-up rom-com,” he told Vulture.

“But it was always about two very different people that are in this larger-than-life, crazy circumstance and what they learn from one another within this 24-hour period.

“There’s a little bit more heart in this version. It was needing a little bit more of a soul and a little bit more redeemability from the characters.”

Zachary Quinto said the film was exactly the “unexpected” and “unabashedly gay” comedic role he needed after the pandemic.

“It felt like something I hadn’t seen before in terms of the brand of humor,” he said.

Down Low is available to rent or buy on digital now.

YouTube won’t let you watch Down Low‘s age-restricted trailer in this article, but you can watch it here.
