Trailers You Missed: What A Buncha Maniacs
Is it just me, or has this week been long as hell? Honestly, even if you told me today was Wednesday I’d be like, “Screw you, I’m still putting out a Friday round-up of trailers because we deserve the distraction.” What I’m saying is: if today isn’t actually Friday, please don’t burst my bubble. Just… let me have this.
So Netflix dropped a whole lotta stuff this week:
GLOW — Season 2 launching on Netflix June 29th, 2018
OK, so technically this is a date announcement, not a trailer. But whatever, it’s a Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling music video for “Maniac” — top THAT, other trailers!
Anon — On Netflix May 4
Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried star in this tale about a future where technology has eliminated privacy… except for this one assassin, who doesn’t seems to have any visual records. Also, eyeballs get hacked? Directed by Gattaca’s Andrew Niccol.
Candy Jar — On Netflix April 27th
Dueling high school debate champs are forced to work together to succeed, and OBVIOUSLY they’re totally gonna fall in love, right? Ugh, I can feel the hormones and angst from here. I love it. The adults in this one are pretty great too: Christina Hendricks, Uzo Aduba, Helen Hunt, and Tom Bergeron star.
And in non-Netflix news:
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom — June 22, 2018
I don’t really have anything to say about this. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the implications of Cocktail Dino:
Welcome to Parks and T. Rex. @PrattPrattPratt is back for ‘@JurassicWorld: #FallenKingdom,’ the franchise’s darkest installment yet. Get exclusive scoop on the film, plus 68 more summer movies here: https://t.co/YcseGflGmq pic.twitter.com/q5P3xaGsm9— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) April 18, 2018
Blindspotting — In Select Cities July 20th
Longtime friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this tale, set in a rapidly gentrifying Oakland. It opened at Sundance this year, and though I missed it at SXSW, it’s got the coveted Seth stamp of approval:
I haven’t finished my review of this yet because I’m a slacker, but I’ll take any opportunity to crow about it anyway. Guys. Blindspotting is SO FUCKING GOOD. Keep it in mind for July. https://t.co/lN0N7NJU2a— Seth Becomes Her (@LuvSpackle) April 19, 2018
Hereditary — June 8th
Speaking of stuff the Overlords watched at SXSW, Kristy saw Hereditary and just hearing her talk about it gave me the heebie-jeebies. And then this new trailer just solidified it. Like, I can’t wait to see this movie. But also? I’m not ready.
