With the April 1 premiere date of Jordan Peele‘s highly anticipated reboot of The Twilight Zone just around the corner, CBS All Access has finally released the first full trailer for the upcoming series, which features one hell of an ensemble cast.
Thes show is hosted, narrated, and produced by Peele, and boasts an episodic cast list that includes the likes of Ike Barinholtz, John Cho, Lucinda Dryzek, Taissa Farmiga, Greg Kinnear, Luke Kirby, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Alison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Jefferson White, Jonathan Whitesell, Jessica Williams, DeWanda Wise, and Steven Yeun, among many others.
CBS Television Studios is producing the series in association with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg‘s Genre Films. Peele and Kinberg are also serving as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling, Rick Berg, and Greg Yaitanes.
The original Twilight Zone series was created by Rod Serling and ran for five seasons until 1964, ending with a total of 156 episodes that starred actors like Dennis Hopper, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Redford, and William Shatner. The show was known for using socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times.
“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time but prophesied issues of ours,” Peele said in a statement last year. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”
The series will be available exclusively to CBS All Access subscribers.

Trust me when I tell you that you are not prepared to watch the trailer for Tom Hooper’s ‘Cats’
Today has brought us excellent trailers for films like It Chapter Two and Top Gun: Maverick, so of course Tom Hooper’s adaptation of fucking Cats had to come along a ruin that. I cannot stress enough just how truly annoyed I am by the trailer for this godforsaken movie.
Based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage musical of the same name, Hooper aims to “reimagine the musical for a new generation with spectacular production design, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from classical ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, street dance to tap.”
The thing is, though, Cats doesn’t look “spectacular” at all — it looks creepy and dreadful. Like, even more so than It Chapter Two, which is a literal fucking horror movie. The images I witnessed while viewing the trailer will undoubtedly haunt me for the remainder of the day. Especially this one.
However, if this looks like your kind of thing, then good for you! I’m glad there are weirdos out there who enjoy entertaining themselves by watching humans in cat costumes run around on all fours for god knows how long while belting out show tunes. Certainly no judgment from me!
James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and Francesca Hayward all star in the nightmare of a film that is Cats, which will hit theaters on December 20.
Tom Cruise shocks San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H with surprise ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ trailer
In a surprise appearance, Tom Cruise took the stage during Paramount’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con to debut the first trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to Tony Scott’s 1986 original, which finds Cruise reprising his iconic role as Navy pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.
“For 34 years, you guys have been very patient with me and I felt it was my responsibility to finally really deliver for you,” Cruise told the raucous Hall H crowd after being introduced by Conan O’Brien, who was leading the panel.
He added, “Everything you see in this film is for real. We’re working with the Navy. I wanted to give you an experience of being inside that aircraft,” before later referring to the movie as “a love letter to aviation.”
In addition to Cruise, Maverick‘s all-star cast includes the likes of Val Kilmer, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Ed Harris, Jon Hamm, Lewis Pullman, and Manny Jacinto. Joseph Osinski directed the film from a script written by Justin Marks.
Producers on the sequel include Jerry Bruckheimer for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and David Ellison for Skydance Media. Tommy Harper, Chad Oman, Mike Stenson, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger are executive producers.
Top Gun: Maverick will fly into theaters on June 26, 2020.
A new ‘It Chapter Two’ trailer finds the Losers Club facing off against Pennywise one last time
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for It Chapter Two, the eagerly awaited follow-up to Andy Muschietti’s 2017 critically acclaimed box office smash based on Stephen King’s iconic horror novel of the same name.
Set 27 years after the events of the first movie, It Chapter Two stars Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley as they return to Derry to confront Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) one last time.
“Something happens to you when you leave this town. The farther away, the hazier it all gets,” we hear an adult Mike say as the trailer shows a flashback from the 2017 film. “But me — I never left. I remember all of it.”
Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor will all reprise their roles as the original members of the Losers Club from the first movie.
Muschietti directed It Chapter Two from a screenplay written by Gary Dauberman, based on King’s best-selling 1986 book. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producers, with Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg serving as executive producers.
It Chapter Two will float into theaters on September 6.
