In new comedy / drama The King of Staten Island, standup comic Pete Davidson is Scott, a young man who’s been dealing with a case of arrested development ever since his father died.
Scott spends his days smoking marijuana and dreaming of being a tattoo artist until eventually he has face his grief and take charge of his life.
Directed and cowritten by Judd Apatow; additional key cast includes Bill Burr, Steve Buscemi and Marisa Tomei
I’m in to see how closely what happens in this movie is linked to Davidsons true life story. So far it looks like a lot is the same except they’ve swapped Davidson’s pursuit of a standup comedy career with a career as tattoo artist.
I also want to see this for the comedy greatness of Apatow and Burr; the latter being one of my absolute favourite comedians. He’s just so good! I know he’s not doing standup in this movie but simply seeing one of my favourite funny people, especially while he’s rocking that notable moustache is guaranteed to put a smile on my face.
Maude Apatow, Bel Powley, Pamela Adlon, Kevin Corrigan, Machine Gun Kelly, Jimmy Tatro, Moises Arias, Adriana DeMeo, Hank Strong and Domenick Lombardozzi also star.
The King of Staten Island Release Dates: June 12th, 2020 (US)…
