Universal debuts poster and trailer for The King of Staten Island
Writer director Judd Apatow has been bringing the laughs for years with great films like The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Trainwreck. These films not only brought the laughs, but also help to take the stars to new levels in their careers. His latest film The King of Staten Island looks to do the same starring SNL alumni Pete Davidson in a fictionalized version of his life. The film features a great supporting cast including Marisa Tomei, Bill Burr, Bel Powley, Pamela Adlon, Maude Apatow and Steve Buscemi.
The King of Staten Island follows Scott who 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.
While you will have to wait until June 12th to see the film On Demand, you can check out the poster and trailer here now from Universal.
