John Cena and Awkwafina in the Jackpot Trailer

Amazon MGM Studios has released the official trailer and poster for the action comedy Jackpot, which will premiere globally on Prime Video on August 15, 2024.

In the near future, a “Grand Lottery” has been newly established in California—the catch: Kill the winner before sundown to legally claim their multi-billion dollar jackpot.

When Katie Kim (Awkwafina) moves to Los Angeles, she mistakenly finds herself with the winning ticket.

Desperate to survive the hordes of jackpot hunters, she reluctantly joins forces with amateur lottery protection agent Noel Cassidy (John Cena), who will do everything in his power to get her to sundown in exchange for a piece of her prize.

However, Noel must face off with his slick rival Louis Lewis (Simu Liu), who also seeks to collect Katie’s commission at all costs. Jackpot was rated R by the MPA for pervasive language, violence, and sexual references.

Jackpot was directed by Paul Feig and written by Rob Yescombe. The cast includes Awkwafina, John Cena, Ayden Mayeri, Donald Elise Watkins, Sam Asghari, Murray Hill, and Simu Liu.
