Thanks to what is essentially a “lost year” due to Covid, it has now been almost two years since STX’s breakout smash Hustlers, a film that was supposed to represent a comeback of sorts for the mini-major. Lorene Scafaria’s acclaimed and buzzy crime caper, concerning a true-life story about strippers bilking their higher-end clients, earned $104 million domestic on a $20 million budget and arguably should have nabbed an Oscar nod for Jennifer Lopez (although Constance Wu was no slouch herself).
Whatever forward momentum was achieved by Hustlers (and Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen, which earned $115 million on a $35 million budget) was obviously muted by theaters shutting down for most of 2020. While they found fortune and glory via Gerard Butler’s Greenland thanks to decent overseas box office (around $45 million), PVOD and an HBO Max pay-tv deal, you might argue that Queenpins is essentially the “STX is back!” movie.
Written and directed by Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly, the “based on a true story” flick stars Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste (who also co-starred with Bell on The Good Place and on the fourth season of Veronica Mars) as two lower-middle-class women creating a lucrative scheme concerning grocery coupons. The how’s and why’s are laid out in the trailer, but the core appeal is presumably watching these underestimated and undervalued women cheat the system and temporarily live the high life before it all comes crashing down.
Offering able support will be Joel McHale (as Bell’s husband), Vince Vaughn (as a U.S Postal Inspector) and the always delightful Paul Walter Hauser as a Loss Prevention Officer who stumbles upon the diabolical scheme. For those so inclined, the film will open theatrically on September 10. Those who decry the lack of non-franchise, non-IP, star-driven, adult-skewing, diverse multiplex fare will have the chance to take in a double feature of Queenpins and James Wan’s original chiller Malignant.
I’m not optimistic (it’s not like John Travolta and Lisa Kudrow’s “cheat the lottery” crime comedy Lucky Numbers was a hit even back in 2000), but STX is hedging their bets with a Paramount+ post-theatrical debut. To the extent that Covid has made us all treat the theatrical fortunes of even stuff like F9, Space Jam: A New Legacy and Black Widow as “box office underdogs,” we still don’t quite know if there’s even less future than before for old-school studio programmers. Yes, Jason Statham’s Wrath of Man notched $99 million worldwide in May, and we can only hope that such a performance for the Guy Ritchie action is the rule rather than the exception.
Couponing goes criminal in the new trailer for Queenpins. From writer-directors Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly, the film stars Kristen Bell, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Paul Walter Hauser, Vince Vaughn and Bebe Rexha. In theaters September 10th and coming soon to Paramount+
Inspired by a true story, QUEENPINS is an outrageous comedy about a bored and frustrated suburban homemaker, Connie (Kristen Bell) and her best pal JoJo (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams, who turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar counterfeit coupon caper. After firing off a letter to the conglomerate behind a box of cereal gone stale, and receiving an apology along with dozens of freebies, the duo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that scams millions from mega-corporations and delivers deals to legions of fellow coupon clippers. On the trail to total coupon dominance, a hapless Loss Prevention Officer (Paul Walter Hauser) from the local supermarket chain joins forces with a determined U.S. Postal Inspector (Vince Vaughn) in hot pursuit of these newly-minted “Queenpins” of pink collar crime.
