Pete Davidson‘s semi-autobiographical film The King of Staten Island was originally slated to arrive in theaters this summer. However, the Judd Apatow-directed film will now release on VOD this June as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trailer above introduces Davidson as Scott Ready, a 24-year old man who lives at home and has been stuck in a rut ever since the death of his firefighter father. Although his younger sister (Maude Apatow) is moving on to college and his mother (Marisa Tomei) is finally dating someone new (Bill Burr). Ready is unable to build a life of his own. When he finds out the man his mother is dating is also a firefighter, it sends him into a spiral that will make him confront his past and allow him to grow up. Bel Powley, Steve Buscemi, Pamela Adlon, and Machine Gun Kelly round out the cast.

Davidson’s upbringing was rough even before he made it into Hollywood. His father was an actual firefighter who died in service during 9/11. He’s also suffered through substance abuse issues and went on to make headlines for his relationships with Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale, alongside his frequent check-ins to rehab.

Catch The King of Staten Island when it arrives on VOD services, like Apple TV, Google Play and Prime Video, on June 12.
