Kevin James is taking on a completely new role: the villain in a horror movie. The Kings & Queens comedy actor will be the central convict at play in the home-invasion thriller Becky. Along with its upcoming release on VOD this Friday. James’ latest role will also premiere in almost 50 drive-in theater screens this weekend.
As a select number of drive-in theaters nationwide start to open their doors to the public (with social distancing restrictions), Becky will be one of the few new releases available to view with an audience in some time. Many theaters are still playing films like Bloodshot, Bad Boys For Life, Sonic the Hedgehog and Jumanji: The Next Level on their screens – releases that are now months old.
Becky has been rated “R” for “Strong bloody violence, grisly images, and language.”
Becky stars Annabelle: Creation’s Lulu Wilson as a 13-year-old who is brought to a lake house by her father (Community’s Joel McHale) in an attempt to reconnect with her. As Kevin James’ relentless Dominick infiltrates the house in search for something, Becky pulls Home Alone-type antics, but amped up to an R-rated level.
Becky is directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, who were responsible for 2017’s underseen action-thriller Bushwick, and is written by Nick Morris and Ruckus Skye & Lane Skye. The movie costars Amanda Brugel and Robert Maillet.
Quiver Distribution and Redbox Entertainment are releasing Becky on VOD and Digital, June 5.
