Trailer Trash: Finally, A Movie About a Racist White Man Who Gains His Redemption!
Welcome to another edition of Trailer Trash. We will begin the trailer for Burden. Based on a true story, it stars Forest Whitaker and Garrett Hedlund. It’s about an “unlikely friendship” between a Black reverend who offers shelter to Mike Burden, a member of the KKK, and his single-mother girlfriend (Andrea Riseborough). It premiered at this year’s Sundance and opens in February. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I’m pretty sure the racist white guy is the hero. Cue the gospel music: “I ain’t no Klansmen no more.”
Next up is the Netflix flick, Let It Snow, which looks like a cheesy ’90s rom-com. I ain’t mad at it, though. It stars Keirnan Shipka from Mad Men, Isabella Moner (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), Jacob Batalon from the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies, Shameik Moore from Spider-Man Into the Spider-verse), Joan Cusack, and the amazing Liv Hewson from Santa Clarita Diet. Seventy-kabillion people are going to watch it, and no one is going to remember having done so by the next Christmas.
Antlers comes from director Scott Cooper and producer Guillermo del Toro. It stars Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, and a really creepy kid. I don’t know what’s going on, but I am super into it.
Finally, I have no idea how Seth Meyers finds the time to write and perform a stand-up special for Netflix, but here’s the trailer for it.
The special, Lobby Baby, premieres on November 5th.
