I cannot wait to see the new thriller Becky which stars Kevin James in a change of pace role for the comedic actor who portrays a very nasty criminal who takes on a teenager looking to protect what’s hers. I’ve heard nothing but good things from the film and along with a Digital and VOD rollout this Friday, the movie will also hit select theaters and drive-ins which have had a resurgence since the pandemic broke.
Becky follows the story of a rebellious 14-year-old Becky as she’s brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to try to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (James), suddenly invade the lake house. Becky, not daddy’s little girl anymore, decides to take matters into her own hands.
James, who is well known for his comedy, plays a very different character then fans are used to as he plays the bike and merciless Dominick who leads a rag tag group of ruthless criminals who invade a family’s home only to get more than they bargained for from the 14 year old daughter who goes full on Rambo. Think Home Alone for not the faint of heart.
Lulu Wilson (Annabelle: Creation) plays the titular role of Becky and also starring are Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale), Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes) and Joel McHale (Community, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge).
Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (Bushwick) co-directed from a script penned by Nick Morris as well as Ruckus and Lane Skye.
I hear the action and violence is off the hook with this one and reviewers are saying LuLu Wilson gives Sly and Arnie a run for their money in the take ‘em all out category. Watch all the carnage in the official trailer that is out now!
The film will release in select cinemas and drive-ins starting this Friday and here’s a complete list of venues playing the film below! If it’s not playing near you then no worries because the movie also hits Digital and VOD venues on Friday as well courtesy of Quiver Distribution and Redbox !
