Based on the viral Twitter thread that was almost too crazy to be true, the first trailer for Zola is finally here.
Having already garnered glowing praise after it first premiered last year at Sundance, A24's film adaptation of a chance encounter turned spur of the moment Florida stripping excursion gone horribly awry is finally set to hit theaters this summer.
Directed by Janizca Brown and co-written by Jeremy O. Harris, Zola stars Taylour Paige as the movie's titular character and Riley Keough as Stefani, the girl about to suck her into a whole vortex of chaos.
As anyone who remembers reading the full thread when it first went viral will recall, what starts out innocently enough as a weekend trip to make some cash at a Florida strip club quickly devolves into a messy 48-hour journey involving sex, murder, run-ins with a Tampa gang, a nameless pimp, an idiot boyfriend and an attempted suicide.
