It looks like The King of Staten Island might be headed down a dark path. Pete Davidson's upcoming movie, Bodies, Bodies, Bodies will be a dark comedy geared toward the Gen-Z crowd. From suspenseful scenes to ones that will have us laughing out loud, we have no doubt this movie will be a good one. Here's what the trailer revealed.

The movie will follow “a group of rich 20-somethings" who invite all their pals over for a party. The huge mansion is out in the middle of nowhere and thanks to the hurricane going on outside no one in the house has any cell service. To entertain themselves the group decided to play a pseudo murderous party game. But what they don't know is that soon enough, their fun time together turns into a terrifying scene. "A party game turns deadly in this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong," explained the official description of the A24 movie. "Our friend is dead. So if you could just, like, not escalate the situation, that'd be great," one character said in the teaser.

Pete Davidson will act as a fictionalized version of himself named David, which is something that is not new for the actor. In the past, he played himself in The King of State Island, and coming up is yet another new project, Bupkis, where once again the comedian will play himself. "That would be so f****** obvious if I were the killer," Davidson's character said in the trailer. "Well, I just look like I f **k, you know what I mean? I look like I f **k, and that's the vibe I like to put out there," he told the group. 

Alongside Davidson, Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott, and Lee Pac will be portraying the “backstabbing, fake friends” who are each suspected to be the murderer in the film. We cant wait to watch the movie and finally find out who the killer is when it hits theaters on August 5th... Stay tuned!
