A24 Reveals First Teaser Trailer for 'Zola'

“You want to hear a story about how me and this bitch here fell out?”

When Zola premiered at Sundance Film Festival back in January, its novel premise — a true crime tale told in a series of 148 tweets — and screenplay co-written by Jeremy O. Harris made headlines. Now, A24 has released a first look at the film in a brief teaser trailer that quotes the viral Twitter thread: “You want to hear a story about how me and this bitch here fell out? It’s kind of long, but it’s full of suspense.”

In case you’re unfamiliar with the explosive thread: In 2015, Aziah “Zola” Wells, a stripper at the time, took to Twitter with an epic recount of a Florida trip that quickly turned into a nightmare. Zola had recently met fellow stripper Jessica, who invited her to dance at an upscale club in Tampa. Jessica’s roommate, Rudy, also came along — in a turn of events, Rudy turned out to be Jessica’s pimp, who proceeded to coerce both Zola and Jessica into prostitution.

Head to A24’s Twitter to watch the trailer for Zola, starring Taylour Paige as Zola and Riley Keough as Jessica. Due to the pandemic, it remains to be seen when the film will release.
