The acclaimed film Asking For It emerges from a successful festival run, and you can catch the trailer below.

If you enjoyed 2020’s Promising Young Woman then you may well want to place Asking For It on your radar. The upcoming film promises to take up the baton for feminist-edged thrillers and lead them into a new, more genre-based direction when it releases in the spring.

The film is directed by The Bad Batch‘s Eamon O’Rourke, and has been picking up lots of awards on the festival circuit. It’s due out in early March in the US, in cinemas and on digital, and whilst there are no UK release details as yet, we’d expect to see it around the same time.

Kiersey Clemons and Ezra Miller are just part of the ensemble, and if the early reviews are anything to go by, this will be one to watch. We’ll keep you updated on UK release details and leave you with the trailer, and the official synopsis, below.

Trailer first…

And here’s that synopsis…

After small town waitress Joey (Kiersey Clemons) is sexually assaulted after a date with her old friend Mike (Casey Cott), she befriends mysterious stranger Regina (Alexandra Shipp). Regina introduces her to The Cherry Bombers, an all femme gang including Beatrice (Vanessa Hudgens), Lily (Leslie Stratton), Sal (Radha Mitchell), Jett (Leyna Bloom), Angie (Lisa Yaro), Fala (Casey Camp-Horinek), and Rudy (Gabourey Sidibe). All suffering from past traumas, together they fight a misogynistic society by targeting violent frat boys, a corrupt police force of human traffickers led by Sheriff Morel (David Patrick Kelly), and the dangerous alt-right group MFM (Men’s First Movement) headed by Mark Vanderhill (Ezra Miller). As Joey is drawn further into their chaotic world, Sal’s old flame, Logan County Sheriff Vernon (Luke Hemsworth), investigates MFM, leading to a thrilling showdown.
