netflix's the crown trailer

It seems like every week now, Netflix releases a new trailer for a new original television series that seems too good to be true. The level of talent and material they are producing is just unmatched, even by HBO at this point.

Today’s trailer is for The Crown, a new original series which reunites Academy Award-nominated writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with three-time Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen). It’s an adaptation of the award-winning play The Audience, which tells the behind the scenes story of Queen Elizabeth II’s early reign, “revealing the personal intrigues, romances, and political rivalries behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th Century.”

Watch The Crown trailer after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

20th Century Women trailer

The first trailer for 20th Century Women opens with a familiar sound: a politician grandly diagnosing what he sees as the real problem with America. But the person talking isn’t anyone running for president this year — it’s Jimmy Carter, delivering his famous “Crisis of Confidence” speech in 1979. The characters watching the address seem largely unimpressed, save for Dorothea (Annette Bening). “I thought that was beautiful,” she says.

20th Century Women is the new feature by Mike Mills, who last put out the rather lovely romance Beginners. He’s lined up an impressive cast to bring to life his portrait of 1970s Santa Barbara, including Bening, Elle FanningGreta GerwigBilly Crudup, and Lucas Jade Zumann. Watch the 20th Century Women teaser trailer below.

king-cobra-trailer

Based on a true story, King Cobra shows James Franco and Christian Slater face off as gay porn producers, but there’s likely far more to writer-director Justin Kelly‘s movie than that summary. The drama is really about the rise of gay porn star Sean Paul Lockhart (known as Brent Corrigan), and the killing of the producer who helped start his career. Former Disney Channel star Garrett Clayton plays Lockhart in the film.

Fences Trailer

We’re almost in the thick of awards season now that it’s officially fall, and that means we’ll start seeing more trailers for the films hoping for Oscar glory early next year. Paramount Pictures has just thrown one of their entries into the ring with the first trailer for Fences, an adaptation of August Wilson‘s Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name.

Denzel Washington directs and stars in the film adaptation of the play, and he’s also brought his fellow stage star Viola Davis to reprise her role in the film. It’s an intense, powerful teaser trailer that already proves Washington and Davis turn in performances that will likely earn them acting nominations on the awards circuit.

The 13th trailer

2014’s Selma launched Ava DuVernay to a whole new level of fame and acclaim, but the filmmaker hasn’t been content to rest on her laurels. For the past couple of years she’s kept mostly off the radar, plugging away at her next few projects. This fall, we finally get to see two of them come to fruition. One is the OWN drama Queen Sugar, which debuted earlier this month to high praise. The other is The 13th, a documentary about mass incarceration in the United States.

The title refers to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery “except as a punishment for crime.” The film chronicles the path from the 13th Amendment to our modern-day criminal justice system. The 13th trailer opens with a shocking statistic — that nearly 1 out of 4 prisoners in the world are locked up in the U.S. — and promises a film that looks at how, exactly, we got here. Watch The 13th trailer below.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Dog Eat Dog

So far Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage‘s second collaboration, Dog Eat Dog, has divided critics, but they’ve still been kinder to the duo’s latest film than they were to Cold Dying of the Light, a butchered movie that got ripped out of Schrader’s hands. That unfortunate experience for the director helped bring him and Cage to Dog Eat Dog. For their second film, Schrader was intent on making it under the right circumstances, so he secured final cut for this comedic crime thriller. Also starring is Willem Dafoe, who’s no stranger to working with Schrader, having starred in Light Sleeper and Auto Focus.

Below, watch the promising Dog Eat Dog trailer.

Luke Cage trailer

Here’s hoping you had the foresight to clear your calendar for this weekend, because in case you’ve forgotten, we’re just a few days away from the highly anticipated premiere of Luke Cage. And if you really did forget, Netflix has one more Luke Cage trailer here today to remind you.

Following the events of Jessica Jones, Luke heads uptown to hide out in Harlem… only to find himself battling a whole new bunch of baddies, like crime boss Cornell Stokes (Mahershala Ali) and politician Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Fortunately, he has some new friends, too, including Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who first crossed paths with Luke in Jessica Jones, and Misty Knight (Simone Missick). Oh, and Method Man. Turns out the rapper’s a big fan, in the most endearing scene from the Luke Cage trailer. Check out the latest Luke Cage trailer below.  Read More »

The Duplass Brothers have a four-picture deal with Netflix. Last summer, the streaming service announced they’d finance four movies produced by Jay and Mark Duplass through their production company Duplass Brothers Productions. Unlike Netflix’s Adam Sandler movies, however, the brothers’ films will first go to theaters. The first film the Duplass brothers have produced for Netflix is Alex Lehmann’s feature directorial debut Blue Jay, which stars Duplass and recent Emmy winner Sarah Paulson (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story).
