The latest movie from Judd Apatow, The King of Staten Island stars Pete Davidson in a semi-autobiographical comedy. It is Pete's first lead role in a film after rising to fame as the youngest ever cast member on Saturday Night Live (SNL). The King of Staten Island follows Scott, a bit of a waster whose life has been passing him by since his firefighter dad died 17-years before. Scott reluctance to face life is tested and events force him to make some changes.
Covid-19 forced many films to postpone their cinema release or to go for an online premiere. The King of Staten Island opted for the latter and was released on Amazon Prime Video and Vudu on June 12th. It is the same price across all platforms at $19.99.
