Watch 'stud' Bad Bunny and Gael García Bernal kiss in “Cassandro” clip

Prepare yourselves: Things are about to get muy caliente.

Ever since the movie Cassandro debuted at Sundance earlier this year, a kiss between Gael García Bernal and Bad Bunny's characters has been a topic of curiosity. And now, you can see what the fuss is all about in EW's exclusive look at the scene, above.

The movie centers on Saúl Armendáriz's (García Bernal) struggles as a gay lucha libre wrestler, his rise to success after becoming an exótico (in short, a luchador in drag) and taking on the Cassandro persona, and the important people in his life — his mother, a new trainer, friends — who helped build him up to tackle the homophobia and discrimination he faces in and out of the ring.

One of those people is Bad Bunny's Felipe, a drug dealer who's introduced to the wrestler by his new promoter. All the while, Felipe has played it coy with the attention, giving small hints that he might be interested but doesn't pursue in any way his own curiosities. But when Saúl finally decides to make his move (thanks, in part, to the persuasion of some substances), Felipe reciprocates...until he quickly stops Saúl and gently pushes him away.

"It's okay, don't worry. Don't freak out," Saúl calmly assures Felipe. "I'm sorry. See you around, stud."

While Felipe may have hesitations about the kiss, Bad Bunny, it seems, didn't. "If you're acting, you're being someone you're not," the music superstar told Time. "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 was co-written and directed by Oscar-winning documentarian Roger Ross Williams, who previously turned his camera on Armendáriz for his 2016 documentary short, The Man Without a Mask. The movie is now playing in select theaters and will be available to stream Sept. 22 on Prime Video. Watch the exclusive clip above.
