The Good Place stars Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste have reunited to break bad together in the upcoming film Queenpins.
From STX Entertainment, the studio that brought audiences Hustlers, comes another Robin Hood tale based on the true story of two suburban women who started an illegal coupon club scheme.
As seen in the trailer, which dropped Thursday morning, Bell plays discontented housewife Connie Kaminski, who is best friends with Howell-Baptiste’s JoJo Johnson, a wishful vlogger. Together, the duo bond over their hobby of extreme couponing, but their ambitions start to spiral out of control after they write a sternly worded letter of complaint that convinces a conglomerate to send them dozens of freebies.

The small win takes them down a dangerous road, inspiring them to start their own counterfeit coupon ring and scam millions of dollars from mega-corporations, securing sweet deals for legions of fellow coupon enthusiasts.

As the money pours in, a sad-sack loss prevention officer (Paul Walter Hauser) and a driven U.S. postal inspector (Vince Vaughn) get suspicious and begin to pursue the pair to end the Queenpins’ reign.
