To paraphrase the great Todd Rundgren, I saw the summoned light oozing out of her forearm and now I need therapy. Help?!?! In the trailer for Netflix’s newest YA fantasy Shadow and Bone , based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels , an orphan teen mapmaker (played by Jessie Mei Li) possesses this extraordinary gift, which kind of looks like what happens when the Doctors regenerate in Doctor Who . Everyone around her, including a hot villain , insists this means that their enemies are threatened by her mere existence, but what does she want to do with it? Maybe start a revolution? Train with an elite army of magical soldiers? Wear fashionable capes? “Everybody’s looking at me like I’m the answer,” she muses. “So no pressure.” Shadow and Bone will premiere on Netflix on April 23. … [Read more...] about Trailer: Come On Baby, Light My Fire

Sunny day , a Sesame Street documentary is on its way. Screen Media has released the first trailer for Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street , which follows the history of the educational children’s show (now on air for over five decades ), as it grew from an idea to a household name. “This was an experiment,” Sesame Street co-founder Joan Ganz Cooney says over the series’ jaunty theme song. “No one had ever seen anything like it.” Inspired by the 1960s civil-rights movement, Cooney and Lloyd Morisett sought to use the power of television to reach and teach children across the country, particularly in urban areas. The doc features over 20 interviews with the original writers, cast, and crew involved in that mission , including Muppets creator Jim Henson . And the new trailer packs in plenty of nostalgic archival footage, like behind-the-scenes glimpses at Frank Oz and Henson joking around as Bert and Ernie . Based on a nonfiction book of the same name, the Marilyn Agrelo–directed film had its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival . Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street will premiere in theaters on April 23, and on demand on May 7. … [Read more...] about Trailer: Jim Henson and His Beard Spread Joy
The show that convinced us isolation wouldn’t be that bad last spring is back! This time on season two of The Circle , both audiences and contestants know better. The U.S. version of the Netflix reality-competition series returns with new twists, new catfish, and one familiar face: Chloe from Too Hot to Handle , another Netflix reality show. (Does this mean last year’s winner, our boy Joey Sasso , is heading for a summer of love or what?) Playing over a “voice-activated social media platform,” a.k.a. a production team frantically transcribing their messages , The Circle contestants compete for $100,000 and a chance at romance. That is, if they aren’t fooled by catfish and red herrings. Are people really going to believe former boy-band superstar, Lance Bass , is on the show? “Who is N-S-Y-N-C?” British babe Chloe wonders in the trailer. The confusion begins. It’s gonna be revealed when the first four episodes of The Circle season two hit Netflix on April 14. Say it with us: “Crying emoji. Heart emoji. Crying emoji! Heart emoji!” … [Read more...] about Season Two Trailer Is Literally Too Hot to Handle
Category is: grand finales. The trailer for Pose season three is here and with it, a final glimpse at the groundbreaking series. The show’s last season takes place in 1994 where we find Blanca (Mj Rodriguez) struggling to balance being a mother with her career as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS continues to wipe out Americans ages 24 to 44, Pray Tell deals with unexpected health issues. Billy Porter’s performance in the trailer alone deserves a standing ovation. Blanca convinces her old friends to return to ballroom by — what else? — giving one of her empowering speeches. “We’ll do it together, as a family,” she says in the trailer. “I’m done running from myself, my destiny. I’m not running no more. Who’s with me?” Girl, us! Pose also stars Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Dyllón Burnside, and Angel Bismark Curiel, along with Dominique Jackson and all of her fabulousness. The legacy continues May 2 on FX. … [Read more...] about Season 3 Trailer: The Final Walk Begins May 2

We are once again asking : When will Amy Adams know peace? The Woman in the Window has a new trailer, two years after the first one dropped. The Amy Adams thriller was pushed from its May 2020 theatrical release to Netflix, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Based on the book by A.J. Finn, Adams plays the agoraphobic Anna Fox who believes she witnessed the murder of her new neighbor and friend, played by Julianne Moore . She’s determined to find out the truth, even if that means pushing herself beyond the safety of her home. At this point in the pandemic, we do not relate.

At least you know this is authentic suspense. The Woman in the Window also stars Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Anthony Mackie, Tracy Letts, and Gary Oldman. Finally, that woman will be in your browser window May 14, only on Netflix. … [Read more...] about Trailer: Amy Adams Still Knows No Peace
