The first trailer for A24’s film Zola has finally arrived.
The film is based on the epic journey of twists and turns that was released as a Twitter thread back in 2015. Now, we’re getting a full movie, directed by Janicza Bravo and starring Taylour Paige alongside Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun, and Colman Domingo.
While the teaser doesn’t indicate a release date, it does launch with the first tweet that began Zola’s story. “You wanna hear a story about how me and this bitch here fell out? It’s kinda long but it’s full of suspense,” Twitter user @_zolarmoon wrote in her first post. As the story continued on twitter, it unfolded into a 150-tweet tale packed with violence, pimps, scams, and even murder.
Watch the trailer for Zola below.
