The first trailer has dropped for Gone, Heitor Dhalia‘s thriller about a young woman named Jill (Amanda Seyfried) who comes home to find that her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) has mysteriously vanished. Jill is sure Molly’s been kidnapped by the same serial killer Jill escaped from two years prior, but the police aren’t convinced — so Jill takes matters into her own hands to rescue her sister.

It’s a standard-issue thriller premise, and there’s not much about the trailer that really sets Gone apart from dozens of similar movies. (The utterly forgettable, SEO-unfriendly title doesn’t help matters, either.) Still, there’s always the possibility it’ll wind up a satisfying if not especially imaginative take on the genre, and Seyfried usually makes for a compelling lead. Watch the trailer after the jump.

To be honest, I suspect most of you who follow Dexter but don’t subscribe to Showtime have already downloaded an illegal copy of Sunday night’s Season 6 premiere. But on the off chance you haven’t gotten around to that just yet — or that you’re one of those rare law-abiding types — the network is providing you with an opportunity to watch it legally and for free, in hopes that you’ll consider shelling out the extra $12 or so a month to just subscribe to the channel already.

After the jump, watch the full-length episode via YouTube. A message at the start of the show states that “the following program has been edited from its original form” (read: slightly less blood and blurred-out boobies), but unless you’re a real completist about premium cable-approved nudity, I’m thinking the video below is good enough. Watch it after the jump.

The people behind the marketing for Dexter certainly haven’t been shy about showing off their wares. I feel like we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Season 6, thanks to all the featurettes, trailers, teasers, casting announcements, etc. Then again, knowing this show, I’m sure it’s got plenty more surprises and twists up its sleeve.

With just less than a week to go til the return of the series, we have two more previews that tease some of the plot points we’ll be seeing in Season 6. The first, “Guest Stars,” offers a glimpse at what we’ll be seeing from the new characters who’ll be facing off against Dexter (Michael C. Hall) this year; the second, “Tragedy Strikes,” shows everyone’s favorite serial killer at a low point, injured and reaching out for help. Watch them both after the jump.
