Have you ever been stood behind one of those shoppers who unfolds reams of coupons at the cash register? Well, you probably won’t have been next in line to someone quite like Kristen Bell’s discount don in Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet’s Queenpins.
A based-on-a-true-story coupon comedy from STX Films, who were also behind 2019’s similarly themed breakout hit Hustlers, this tells the story of a suburban housewife (Bell) who becomes fed up with being dismissed and overlooked by her husband and society, so decides to take back control of her life by starting an illegal coupon club. Check out the trailer below…
Inspired by a true story, QUEENPINS is an outrageous comedy about a bored and frustrated suburban homemaker, Connie (Kristen Bell) and her best pal JoJo (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams, who turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar counterfeit coupon caper. After firing off a letter to the conglomerate behind a box of cereal gone stale, and receiving an apology along with dozens of freebies, the duo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that scams millions from mega-corporations and delivers deals to legions of fellow coupon clippers. On the trail to total coupon dominance, a hapless Loss Prevention Officer (Paul Walter Hauser) from the local supermarket chain joins forces with a determined U.S. Postal Inspector (Vince Vaughn) in hot pursuit of these newly-minted “Queenpins” of pink collar crime.
Queenpins hits cinemas in the U.S. on September 10th 2021.
