If you haven’t already caught the hype about the new queer lucha libre movie Cassandro, starring Gael García Bernal, the new clips out today are bound to rope you in for this one.

Based on a true story, Cassandro follows gay amateur wrestler Saúl Armendáriz (Bernal) on his quest to gain international fame and respect as an “exótico,” something the trailer makes clear was never allowed to happen in the macho world of lucha libre.

It was also brazenly clear that there would be some fiery tension between Armendáriz and Felipe, played by rapper Bad Bunny in his first queer role. In celebration of its release in theaters today, Amazon shared several clips teasing that chemistry—including a kiss between the two.

Not only was this Bad Bunny’s first queer role, it was also his first on-screen kiss period. The “No Me Conoce” rapper previously opened up about the experience in conversation with TIME, noting, “My first kiss for a movie and it was with a man.”

“If you’re acting, you’re being someone you’re not,” he continued. “So when they asked me for that, I said, ‘Yes, I’m here for whatever you want.’ I think it was very cool; I didn’t feel uncomfortable.”

Cassandro already received positive reviews ahead of its theatrical release, which is only expected to last for one week before it jumps to Prime Video on September 22. It also stars Roberta Colindrez, Perla De La Rosa, Joaquín Cosio, and Raúl Castillo, and marks the narrative feature directing debut of Roger Ross Williams, who co-wrote the script with David Teague.
