In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard – One Direction has a movie coming out! This Is Us hits the theaters on August 30, and Zayn Malik did a little promo of his own. He posted this pic on Instagram and wrote, “#Thisisus x”
Zayn has one of the more touching moments in the movie – the 20-year-old bought his mom a house and the cameras captured the moment she spoke with her son after seeing her new home for the first time.
“It was quite strange filming because it was the first time I’d actually spoken to my mum about it and she’d gone round the house,” he recalls. “It was quite strange but it was good and it’s amazing thing to do.
“I can look back on that in a few years time and I’ve got amazing footage of my mum seeing the house for the first time.”
In the movie, Zayn‘s mom Trisha calls her son after she’s toured her new home. “I know that you always used to say, ‘I’ll get you a house one day when I’m older’. But thank you for what you’ve done for us. I’m so proud of you,” she says tearfully.
A choked-up Zayn replies, “Well, get off the phone then before I start crying.”
