The first official trailer for the Judd Apatow-directed comedy starring Pete Davidson is finally here.
The first look at The King of Staten Island is here ahead of its summer release. The film, set to open SXSW before a theatrical release, will now premiere June 12 on digital platforms.
The semi-autobiographical comedy is based in part on Davidson’s own life. It also stars Maude Apatow, Marisa Tomei, Bel Powley, Steve Buscemi, Pamela Adlon, Lou Wilson, and Moises Arias.
Check out the film’s official 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 (Apatow) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys — Oscar (Ricky Velez), Igor (Arias) and Richie (Wilson) — and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Powley). But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr), 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.”
