Amazon Prime Video has released the first trailer for a great dark comedy titled Emergencythat plays over a wild night. I had the opportunity to see this film at Sundance earlier this year and it was actually one of the better films I’ve seen there this year.
The story follows two friends in college who embark on an epic night as they attempt to be the first black students to complete their school’s legendary frat party tour, during which they attend seven frat parties. Their whole plan fails when they find a white girl passed out on her living room floor, and things quickly escalate into a chaotic mess. You feel like you’ve got yourself into a terrible situation.
I said in my review, “The whole night escapes a crazy intense ending that will leave the audience in suspense. There are things you expect to happen, but in a way it undermines those expectations, which I appreciated. The film takes the audience on a pretty harrowing journey and leads to a pretty powerful ending.”
Here is the summary:
Straight-a-college student Kunle and his laid-back best friend Sean are about to have the most epic night of their lives. Determined to be the first black students to graduate from their school’s legendary frat party, the friends buckle up for their ultimate assignment, Solo mugs in hand. But a quick pit stop at home changes their plans when they find a white girl passed out on the living room floor. Kunle, Sean and their Latino roommate Carlos must find a way to de-escalate the situation before it’s too late.
The film was directed Carey Williams (“R#J”) and written by KD Davila (Homeland: Fort Salem) and it stars RJ Cyler, Donald Elise Watkinsand Sebastian Chaçon.
The emergency will be released on May 27th.
