The Mexican-born actress, 54, stars alongside Owen Wilson in the sci-fi romance which will land on Amazon Prime next month.

In the film, Salma plays Isabel, a mysterious woman who initially appears to be homeless. With wild hair and smudged makeup, Salma's character in the film is miles away from her usual glamorous look.

However, all is not what it seems as later on in the trailer we see Salma's character again but this time she's wearing a lab coat -"Dr Isabel Clements", we hear someone refer to her as in the clip, meaning this is no ordinary story. Check out the trailer - and Salma's transformation - for yourself above!

The official synopsis for the film reads: "Bliss is a mind-bending love story following Greg who, after recently being divorced and then fired, meets the mysterious Isabel, a woman living on the streets and convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is nothing but a computer simulation.
