'Zola,' Movie Based on a Viral Twitter Thread, Gets a Trailer - Watch!

Zola is coming!

The film, which was inspired by a viral Twitter thread in 2015, released its first trailer on Wednesday (March 31).

The movie is set to hit theaters on June 30, and was directed by Janicza Bravo and co-written with Jeremy O. Harris.

Here’s a plot summary: “The film centers on the dynamic between the title character, played by newcomer Taylor Paige, and Stefani (Riley Keough). It is based on a 2015 Twitter thread that took the internet by storm despite being only 148 words long. The tweets were by A’ziah King, who was then a 20-year-old Hooters waitress. She wrote about her chance encounter with a stripper and the resulting two-day Florida road-trip bacchanal involving prostitution, murder and a violent pimp known simply as Z.”

The film also stars Nicholas Braun, Ari’el Stachel and Colman Domingo.

Zola had its world premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Taylour also starred in another recent film that is getting a lot of acclaim.

Get Your First Look at Chadwick Boseman in His Final Movie, 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'

Netflix has debuted the first look at the upcoming movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, which is the final film that Chadwick Boseman made before he tragically passed away this summer.

The movie is based on the play by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson and stars Viola Davis in the title role. The film was directed by George C. Wolfe, adapted for the screen by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, and produced by Denzel Washington.

Here is the synopsis: Tensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary “Mother of the Blues,” Ma Rainey (Davis). Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music. As the band waits in the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious trumpeter Levee (Boseman) – who has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry – spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives.

Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman, Michael Potts, Taylour Paige, and Dusan Brown also star in the movie.

Netflix will be releasing the film on December 18 and it’s expected to get a big awards season campaign. Many are already predicting that Chadwick will win a posthumous Oscar for his work in the movie!
