Have you ever stood behind such a shopkeeper unfolding stacks of receipts at the checkout? Well, you probably won’t have been next in line for someone like Kristen Bell’s discount at Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet’s queenpins.
A coupon comedy based on a true story from STX Films, who was also behind the 2019 breakout hit with the same theme Hustlers, tells the story of a suburban housewife (Bell) who grows tired of being fired and overlooked by her husband and society, so she decides to take back control of her life by an illegal Coupon Club to start. Watch the trailer below…
Inspired by a true story, QUEENPINS is an outrageous comedy about a bored and frustrated suburban housewife, Connie (Kristen Bell) and her best friend JoJo (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams that turn a hobby into millions. dollar counterfeit coupon caper. After sending a letter to the conglomerate behind a box of stale cereal and receiving an apology along with dozens of free gifts, the duo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that rips millions off from mega-corporations and delivers deals to legions of fellow coupon cutters. On the road to total coupon dominance, an hapless Loss Prevention Officer (Paul Walter Hauser) from the local supermarket chain joins forces with a determined US Postal Inspector (Vince Vaughn) in pursuit of these newly minted “Queenpins” of rose-collar crime.
Queenpins opens in US cinemas on September 10, 2021.
