The trailer for Joel Kim Booster's hilarious, sexy, and long-awaited Fire Island film is finally here!
A modern, gay AF retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Fire Island is, as the film's official description calls itself, "an unapologetic, modern day rom-com showcasing a diverse, multicultural examination of queerness and romance" that "centers around two best friends who set out to have a legendary summer adventure with the help of cheap rosé and their cadre of eclectic friends."
Directed by Spa Night director Andrew Ahn and written by Booster himself, Fire Island also co-stars Saturday Night Live's Bowen Yang, who spoke to Out during his recent March/April cover story about working on the film and getting to bring this kind of fun but important story to life.
"I got to play this character in Fire Island where it was not trauma-based, but it was still something so grounded and still something that I had to really dig into myself to take out, and it was such an educational, wonderful, challenging thing," Yang said. "I got to work with Andrew on this comedy where he was able to sort of marry those two things together because you still kind of do need the trauma background in order to contextualize queer joy. But that’s what makes queer joy so much more impactful, powerful, meaningful. It needs the underbelly of the suffering."
Fire Island premieres June 3 on Hulu.
