'The Peanut Butter Falcon': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else about the Shia LaBeouf starrer movie

'The Peanut Butter Falcon' is a story about a young boy on an adventure to fulfill his life-long dream.

Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz's American adventure film starring Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, and Bruce Dern is perhaps the most exciting hit from the SXSW Film Festival, where it won the festival's Narrative Spotlight audience award. Nilson and Schwartz's first feature film, 'The Peanut Butter Falcon' is a story about discovery and an adventure unto life. 

Release date

'The Peanut Butter and Falcon' is scheduled to release on August 9, 2019. 


According to the official synopsis, 'The Peanut Butter Falcon' tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church).  A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (LaBeouf), a small-time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whiskey, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor ( Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.
