The Barack and Michelle Obama movie Southside With You (portraying a time where our FLOTUS was still Michelle Robinson) that brings their first date to the big screen had its big debut Sunday night at the Sundance Film Festival at Eccles Center Theatre .

Tika Sumpter, who had a hand in bringing the project into fruition, co-stars as Michelle alongside Parker Sawyers who plays Barack Obama.

In case you missed the first sneak peek, we've got it HERE.

The cute "How To Get Away With Murder" star is spreading her wings in both the tv and film worlds, and it's a super smart move.  She's got the acting chops for both.

Aja was spotted picking up some gifts in the Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge on Sunday.
