The official trailer for "Being the Ricardos" has arrived.

The two-minute preview of the upcoming Aaron Sorkin-directed film, starring Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball and Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz, premiered on Wednesday.

The trailer shows the breakdown of Ball and Arnaz's marriage as they film their iconic sitcom, "I Love Lucy," while Ball is also being investigated for her alleged ties to the Communist Party.

"I need you to help me save my marriage," Lucille says in the trailer, while also questioning Desi about his alleged infidelity. Desi then tells his wife, "If they boo you, we're done."

Amazon Studios' description of the upcoming film about the famous "I Love Lucy" couple reads: "A revealing glimpse of the couple's complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers' room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom "I Love Lucy.'"

The first teaser of the film, released last month, featured a voiceover from Kidman as Ball, sharing, "I get paid a fortune to do exactly what I love doing. I work side-by-side with my husband, who is genuinely impressed by me."

"And all I have to do to keep it is kill for 36 weeks in a row and then do it again the next year," she continues. "You know I did this show so Desi and I could be together. I had no idea it was gonna be a hit."

The film arrives in theaters Dec. 10 and on Prime Video Dec. 21.

Sorkin's production has already received Ball and Arnaz's daughter's stamp of approval. Read more about her reaction to the film here.
