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.
Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron strike up a hilarious romance in the first ‘Long Shot’ trailer
Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival next month, Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Long Shot, the eagerly awaited romantic comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen from The Night Before and 50/50 director Jonathan Levine.
Long Shot follows Fred Flarsky (Rogen), an unemployed journalist who reunites with his first crush (and former babysitter) Charlotte Field (Theron), one of the most influential women in the world. As she begins eyeing a run for the Presidency, she hires Fred as her speechwriter, making him a fish out of water on her elite team.
However, despite Fred’s unpreparedness for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight, sparks begin to fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a serious of unexpected (and somewhat dangerous) incidents.
In addition to the dynamic duo that is Rogen and Theron, Long Shot‘s incredible ensemble cast also includes the likes of O’Shea Jackson Jr., Alexander Skarsgård, Andy Serkis, Ravi Patel, Randall Park, and June Diane Raphael.
Long Shot will have its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 9 before opening in theaters nationwide on May 3.

‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’ trailer teases Chiwetel Ejiofor’s moving directorial debut
Netflix has released the first trailer for Chiwetel Ejiofor’s directorial debut The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. The film, which was also written by and stars Ejiofor, is based on the bestselling book of the same name written by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer.
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind tells the story of 13-year-old William Kamkwamba (newcomer Maxwell Simba), who is thrown out of the school he loves when his family can no longer afford the pricey cost of attendance that comes with it.
After getting kicked out, William sneaks back into the school’s library and discovers a way to build a windmill using the bones of the bicycle belonging to his father Trywell (Ejiofor), which ultimately helps saves his Malawian village from famine.
“A global story, such as this, requires a global platform and I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix on bringing William’s extraordinary tale of determination and inventiveness to audiences worldwide,” Ejiofor said in a statement last year when Netflix acquired global distribution rights to the film.
The film, which was shot on location in the African country of Malawi, was produced by Andrea Calderwood and Gail Egan and also stars Aïssa Maïga, Lily Banda, Lemogang Tsipa, Philbert Falakeza, Joseph Marcell, and Noma Dumezweni.
Netflix will launch The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind globally on their streaming service and in select theaters in the U.S. and U.K. beginning March 1.
