For a little while now, we've been wondering just what the hell A24 was going to do with Slice, their pizza delivery horror picture starring Chance the Rapper and Atlanta's Zazie Beetz which is set in:
“...a spooky small town. When a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Chance and Beetz) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree."
There was a trailer for the movie released a few weeks back that went as such:
Well, now A24 is dropping Slice in theaters next week, via a set of one-night-only screenings in 21 select cities. Monday, September 10th (I know, right?) is the magical day pizza, murder, werewolves and ghosts will be delivered to your doorstep, per director Austin Vesely's announcement on Twitter:
I’m told LA, NYC, and CHI tickets will be live within the hour, sorry for the difficulties! ATL now available along with theeeeese places: pic.twitter.com/hStVfVILxp— Austin Vesely (@AustinVesely) September 4, 2018
While this sort of release pattern doesn't exactly fill us with hope, Slice still looks weird enough that we're willing to give it a go. Since a few of those locations are Alamos, you can bet we'll probably have a review for you come Tuesday morning. How the rest of Slice's release pattern looks remains to be seen, but one would assume that'd it'd just be VOD (think: The Ballad of Lefty Brown) sometime in October (to capitalize on the Halloween Season).
Stay tuned, boys and ghouls...
