I stay with The Handmaid’s Tale for the moment; in the last episode we see a lot of very unlikely situations that have to happen to move the plot forward, but then, finally, the main story moves away from Gilead. Does that mean things are going well for June? I don’t think it’s a major spoiler to say “no, not really. But we can see a story of Janine, which asks June uncomfortable questions in the present. More of that, please. The second half of the season looks promising.
Our trailers this week have a theme of sorts: sequels. Trailers for suites at A quiet place and Strange things, and third trailers for Loki and In the heights.
A quiet place, part 2
As my colleague Alex Cranz noted, this film premiered in theaters last March, but was abruptly withdrawn from the mainstream soon after due to the pandemic. So Paramount is going to try again, because they really want to run it in theaters, apparently. The latest trailer shows flashbacks (hi John Krasinski!) To the attack on the sound-sensitive aliens that wiped out most of civilization, but most of what we see is the period immediately after the first ended. movie. Emily Blunt and Millicent Simmonds reprise their roles from the first film, trying to shut up and connect with other human survivors. A quiet place, part 2 also stars Cillian Murphy, Noah Jupe and Djimon Hounsou, and was directed by Krasinski. It hits theaters on March 28 and will be on the Paramount Plus streaming channel 45 days later.
Stranger Things 4
It’s a disturbing glimpse into what Eleven’s life was like before she escaped the facility where she had been experimenting on her – OK look. I liked the first season of this show because I’m a 1980s kid and forever Winona fan, and because Millie Bobby Brown gave a spectacular performance as the Abused Eleven. But I’m not sure if I can get through another season where she endures misery after misery (although I’m currently halfway through the final season of The Handmaid’s Tale therefore…). Please bring Hopper back for real, show? No release date for Season 4 yet, but as my colleague Andrew Webster pointed out the other day, if they don’t get along, the adorable kids of Hawkins, Indiana will be in their twenties. before it falls. Let’s go, Netflix!
Loki Trailer 3: “Doing Good”
The God of Evil (played by Tom Hiddleston) jump out of a plane in this latest trailer for Loki. We don’t have many new details on what comes from Marvel’s latest TV series in Trailer # 3, but can this show already hurry up and drop off please? Loki premieres on Disney Plus on June 9.
Ewan McGregor plays the larger-than-life fashion designer Halston who built a fashion empire amid all the excesses of the 1970s and 1980s. The miniseries also stars Bill Pullman, Vera Farmiga, Rory Culkin and Krysta Rodriguez (like Liza Minnelli!). Halston makes her Netflix debut on Mary 14th.
In the heights: 96000
The latest trailer for the film version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway play In the heights focuses on a major plot point: someone bought a lottery ticket worth $ 96,000 from the bodega where the main character Usnavi (played by Anthony Ramos) works. In the heights hits theaters and HBO Max on June 11.
