Nicole Kidman comes undone in the teaser for HBO's The Undoing

Nicole Kidman comes undone in the teaser for HBO's The Undoing

David E. Kelley struck gold with his A-list HBO adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, which thrived in part due to the indefatigable star power of Nicole Kidman. Now, Kelley—who’s also behind the Audience Network’s Mr. Mercedes —is reuniting with both Kidman and HBO for a new limited series, The Undoing.

Directed by The Night Manager ’s Susanne Bier, who won an Oscar for In a Better...

Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer

Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer

Anybody who’s ever gotten lost in the winding, identical streets of a subdivision will relate to this trailer for Vivarium, a supernatural comedy about a couple (Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots) who become imprisoned in a labyrinth-like maze of green houses.

Lorcan Finnegan’s film looks thematically heavy-handed, sure—they’ll only be released if they raise a child they grow to hate, which,...

Bo Peep's Toy Story 4 transformation to be explored in new Disney+ short film

Bo Peep's Toy Story 4 transformation to be explored in new Disney+ short film

Bo Peep made a triumphant return in Toy Story 4, having refashioned herself, as our review put it , as a “take-no-shit nomad survivor, liberated by life on the road and her lack of attachment to any one child.” Well, if you’re wondering how she snapped off that lamp, found her voice, and landed in a thrift store, you’re in luck, as Disney+ is dropping a short film later this month that tells...

New To All The Boys sequel trailer puts the spotlight on Kitty, as is right and just

New To All The Boys sequel trailer puts the spotlight on Kitty, as is right and just

In one installment of her When Romance Met Comedy column , our own Caroline Siede wrote, “To All The Boys combines the stylized cinematography of a Wes Anderson movie with the heart of a John Hughes film and the spirit of the best of the 1990s high school rom-coms.” That’s about as good a summation of the appeal of one of 2018's most welcome surprises one could want. But there’s one thing...

Dee Rees adapts Joan Didion with Anne Hathaway in this trailer for Netflix's The Last Thing He Wanted

Dee Rees, whose powerful Mudbound scored a handful of Oscar nominations in 2017, returns to Netflix next month with The Last Thing He Wanted, an adaptation of Joan Didion’s 1997 novel of the same name. A journalistic thriller set against the Iran–Contra affair of the mid-80s, it features an enticing cast that includes Ben Affleck, Rosie Perez, Willem Dafoe, and a very sweaty Anne...

Post Malone is Mark Wahlberg’s prison rival in the Spenser Confidential trailer

Post Malone is Mark Wahlberg’s prison rival in the Spenser Confidential trailer

Netflix continues its foray into big-name action movies: Following the execrable Michael Bay production 6 Underground comes Spenser Confidential, Peter Berg’s attempt at a gritty, ’70s-style cop production, based on the novel Wonderland by Ace Atkins, which is in turn based on Robert B. Parker’s series of Spenser detective novels (check your dad’s bookshelf). Netflix is billing this movie as...

The trailer for Jason Segel's Dispatches From Elsewhere would like to play a game

Jason Segel’s been keeping a low profile over the past few years—after his excellent turn as David Foster Wallace in The End Of The Tour , he appeared in Netflix’s The Discovery and a few indies—but the actor and writer is returning in grand fashion with his new AMC show, Dispatches From Elsewhere. 

We previously shared a teaser for the series, but AMC’s new trailer digs deeper into the...

Here's a trailer for Apple TV+'s LGBTQ documentary series Visible: Out On Television

Apple TV+ hasn’t quite landed with the kind of undeniable buzz as something like the similarly named Disney+, but this trailer for its upcoming documentary series Visible: Out On Television makes a strong case of the streaming service’s continued existence. It’s not that this isn’t the sort of thing another streaming service couldn’t do, but it is something the other streaming...

Here's Sam Elliott reciting the lyrics of "Old Town Road" for Doritos, against humanity

Few elements of modern television production strive harder to emulate the fast-moving, nausea-inducing, Tetsuo-from-the-end-of-Akira-level pace of viral internet content more closely than the annual Super Bowl ad, the proverbial Big Game of “Hey, look at me for 20 seconds!” attention-seeking behavior. We are, of course, already well into the era of human history in which various...

Zoë Kravitz scours the wreckage of her love life in this trailer for Hulu's High Fidelity series

Zoë Kravitz scours the wreckage of her love life in this trailer for Hulu's High Fidelity series

It’s okay to be skeptical of Hulu’s riff on High Fidelity , the 1995 Nick Hornby novel that became the beloved 2000 film starring John Cusack. The first full trailer for the series apes some of the original film’s best scenes, and reveals that Zoë Kravitz’s lead is still named Rob.

But it’s also clear that the series has its own aesthetic, airier and more amiable. And shifting the location...

Rick Rubin, Rob Zombie reflect on Ozzy's legacy in the Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy trailer

“Ozzy changed everything,” Rick Rubin says in this trailer for Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy, a documentary in which the Prince Of Darkness himself takes a sober look at his wild days as a pioneering metal god. Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and even Post Malone offer similar sentiments, with the latter saying that Ozzy’s music “makes me cry and gives me the chills.” Sharon, Jack, and Kelly,...

"Will they or won't they" applies to a few things in Sex Education's season 2 trailer

The second season of Netflix’s raunchy comedy Sex Education is all about moving forward, especially for unlicensed junior sex therapist Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield). He’s closing up the underground sex therapy clinic, moving on from his ostensibly fruitless crush on Maeve (Emma Mackey), and cultivating his relationship with the relentlessly adorable Ola (Patricia Allison).

Daniel Radcliffe is a loser with gun hands in this loony trailer for Guns Akimbo

Daniel Radcliffe is a loser with gun hands in this loony trailer for Guns Akimbo

Daniel Radcliffe, refined English thespian, has guns bloodily bolted to his hands in the trailer for Guns Akimbo, a grimy-looking exploitation flick tapping, at least in the below trailer, into that Neveldine-Taylor magic. That’s not to be reductive, of course, as Kiwi director Jason Lei Howden has an aesthetic all his own—his 2015 gore comedy Deathgasm  was an absolute riot—but the sweaty...

Per Pitchfork, Taylor Swift has revealed the release date for her Netflix documentary Miss Americana: January 31.

Before it begins streaming, Miss Americana will...

BoJack Horseman braces for a reckoning in this trailer for the sad Netflix comedy's final bow

BoJack Horseman braces for a reckoning in this trailer for the sad Netflix comedy's final bow

It became at least somewhat clear why this final season of BoJack Horseman was split into two parts following that game-changing midseason finale , which are our own Les Chappell wrote pivots the show “from building to BoJack’s redemption to asking the question if he even deserves it in the first place.” It was a depressing finale, sure, but it also intrigued the ever-loving hell out of us.
