watch the trailer for Pete Davidson’s ‘King of Staten Island’ (dir. by Judd Apatow)
They've finally released a trailer for The King of Staten Island, the new movie starring SNL's Pete Davidson. He co-wrote the dramedy, which draws on elements of his actual life, with Judd Apatow, who directs, and the film also stars Marisa Tomei, comedian Bill Burr, Steve Buscemi, Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Bel Powley (The Morning Show), Ricky Velez (Master of None), Moises Arias, Kevin Corrigan, and Machine Gun Kelly. Here's the synopsis:
Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar, Igor and Richie—and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey.
But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray, it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.
Originally set for a theatrical release in June, with the pandemic The King of Staten Island is now being released straight to video on demand on June 12. Watch the trailer below.
Speaking of SNL, the show wraps up its 45th season, which didn't get quite as many episodes as it should've thanks to COVID-19, this Saturday (5/9) with another "SNL at Home" episode. Both the previous "At Home" episodes have been interesting and pretty good given the production restraints. No word on who the "host" or musical guest will be for the finale but you can watch a promo below.
