'Emergency' Trailer Sees Teens Navigate A Wild Night Gone Wrong In Tense Comedic Thriller At Prime Video

Amazon’s Prime Video has dropped the trailer for Emergency, the upcoming film starring RJ Cyler, Donald Elise Watkins and Sabrina Carpenter.

Here's the official description:

Kunle and his best friend, Sean, are both seniors in college about to embark on an epic night of Spring Break parties. Sean has the whole night planned out, including every party they will hit on their “legendary tour”. Kunle is down but mostly concerned with finishing up his mold experiment in his lab, as his acceptance to Princeton is hinging on the results. They return to their apartment to pre-game, but find that their roommate, Carlos, left the door open. As they enter with trepidation, Sean and Kunle discover a drunk, semi-conscious white girl they don’t know on the floor and an oblivious Carlos, who didn’t hear her come in over the videogame blaring in his ears. Kunle wants to call the cops but Sean vehemently opposes the idea concerned how it will look when the cops show up (two black men, one Latinx man, and a passed out white woman). Together, Carlos, Sean and Kunle load the girl (who they nickname Goldilocks, but whose real name is Emma) into Sean’s van, with the intention of taking her somewhere safe rather than calling the police. Meanwhile, Emma’s sister, Maddy, has realized that Emma left the party they were at, and begins to search for her in a drunk panic using Emma’s phone’s location. What ensues is a chaotic, hilarious, and tension-filled chase all over town as our trio grapples with their differences while attempting to bring Emma to safety.

The film debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival

Emergency also stars Sebastian Chacon, Maddie Nichols, Madison Thompson, and Diego Abraham.

It is written by KD Davila and directed by Carey Williams.

The film hits select theaters May 20 and releases on Prime Video May 27.
