Witches, and warlocks, and demons, oh my! The fine folks over at Netflix have debuted a spooky new trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which appears to be very much my shit and cannot get here soon enough. Who would’ve guessed this thing would look as good as it does?
A far cry from the beloved, lighthearted 90s sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart, this new rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a dark coming-of-age story that finds the titular character (Kiernan Shipka) wrestling to reconcile her dual half-witch, half-mortal nature with plenty of horror, occult, and, of course, witchcraft sprinkled in.
Sabrina comes courtesy of the team behind Riverdale, a guilty pleasure of mine, which is probably the reason why I’m so excited to see what they’ve done with this new series. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa scripted the show and executive produces alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger.
The town Sabrina takes place in is called Greendale, which is a neighboring town to Riverdale (and the same place where Jason Blossom attempted to fake his own death), so chances are we’ll be seeing a Sabrina/Riverdale crossover happen eventually. Honestly, I’m down for that! Just don’t do another one of those insufferable musical episodes, please and thank you.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also stars Ross Lynch, Jaz Sinclair, Lachlan Watson, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, and Michelle Gomez, and will hit Netflix on October 26. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
Leonardo DiCaprio torches a bunch of Nazis in the new ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ trailer
Stop whatever it is that you’re doing, scroll to the bottom of this post, and watch the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood right fuckin’ now. And then watch it again immediately after. And maybe one more time after that.
There’s so much to unpack here, but let me begin by saying this new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer makes the movie look like an absolute blast and I am beyond jealous of all of the lucky bastards who get to see it two whole months (!) early at Cannes today. I envy every single one of them.
Between seeing Al Pacino in a movie for the first time in god knows how long, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton lighting up a bunch of Nazis with a flamethrower, Margot Robbie playing Sharon Tate, and Brad Pitt just being charming as hell, I am officially 100% in on this movie if I wasn’t already.
Critics are currently getting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood projected into their eyeholes at Cannes as we speak, so we should be getting the first reviews for the film within the next couple of hours, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will hit theaters on July 26. Now go watch that new trailer again.
Woody Allen just self-released the trailer for ‘A Rainy Day in New York’ on his Facebook page
It was once thought that Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York, the film at the center of the director’s $68 million lawsuit against Amazon, would never see the light of day given the rise of the #MeToo movement and renewed attention towards the sexual abuse accusations made against Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.
However, that no longer seems to be the case as a trailer for A Rainy Day in New York popped up on yesterday Allen’s official Facebook page, revealing our first look at the film starring Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning as a young couple who arrive in New York City to spend a weekend together.
It wasn’t up until January of last year, though, that literally almost everybody involved with this project slowly began to distance themselves from it, with many of the film’s stars donating their salaries to charity and Amazon Studios shelving the movie indefinitely.
This, of course, did not bode well with Allen, prompting him to take Amazon to New York federal court, where he’s asking for a $68 million payday in a case that is still pending.
Now, on one hand, I applaud Amazon for taking such great lengths to distance themselves from an accused child molester and all-around creep like Woody Allen. On the other hand, though, I say fuck them for even getting into business with an accused child molester and all-around creep like Woody Allen in the first place.
Amazon could’ve avoided this whole situation had they not signed a multi-million dollar five-picture deal with Allen to begin with, especially after he made that god-awful Crisis in Six Scenes miniseries for them a few years ago.
Case in point: don’t work with Woody Allen under any circumstances, folks.
Anyway, a couple of overseas distributors have said that they’re willing to release Allen’s movie despite his questionable past and the sexual abuse allegations against him, hence this new trailer for A Rainy Day in New York, which you can check out below:
Keanu Reeves makes what is probably the best cameo ever in the ‘Always Be My Maybe’ trailer
I wasn’t really expecting much when I first clicked on the trailer for Netflix‘s new original movie Always Be My Maybe, but that was before I realized it stars Ali Wong, Randall Park, and Keanu motherfucking Reeves, who makes what is quite possibly the best cameo ever at the end of this trailer.
Wong stars here as Sasha, a celebrity chef in Los Angeles who returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant. Little does she know, though, that she’ll run into her old pal Marcus (Park), a musician still living at home and working for his dad.
At first, Sasha and Marcus are a little reluctant to reconnect given how they had a falling out when they were kids and haven’t spoken to each other for 15 years. However, it isn’t long before they find the old sparks that they used to have—and maybe even some new ones.
So where does Keanu Reeves‘ character fall into this whole story? Well, it seems at one point in the film Sasha finds herself a new boyfriend who, uh, we’ll just say is very good with his thumbs. Very, very good with his thumbs. *Insert several winking and purple devil emojis here*
Nahnatchka Khan, one of the executive producers on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat series, makes her feature film directorial debut here with Always Be My Maybe, working from a script Park wrote along with Michael Golamco.
Always Be My Maybe will hit Netflix on May 31.
