the stranger featurette

If you’ve ever watched a random double-feature of Michael Mann’s Collateral and Wes Craven’s Red Eye, and said: “Hey, someone should combine these two movies into one thing!”, Quibi is here for you. The Stranger, the latest original from the short-form streaming service, appears to be heavily influenced by both of those movies, as rideshare driver Maika Monroe finds herself targeted by a crazed killer, played by Dane DeHaan. A new The Stranger featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the series.

The Stranger trailer

In the series finale of Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister makes a grand speech about how there’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. I hope Maika Monroe‘s character in the new Quibi movie The Stranger saw that speech and took it to heart, because she’s going to need one hell of a story of her own if she wants to stay alive. She plays a ride share driver who picks up a deranged sociopath (played by Dane DeHaan), and he threatens to kill her unless she tells him “a really good story.” Check out the newest trailer below.

It’s still up in the air whether Quibi will be a force to be reckoned with in the streaming wars, or just another curious experiment, but the mobile video platform certainly has a talent for releasing star-studded trailers. The latest trailer stars Dane DeHaan and Maika Monroe in a thriller series that follows the rideshare from hell. The Stranger follows Monroe’s rideshare driver as she picks up DeHaan’s titular stranger, who claims to have just committed a murder and threatens to do the same to her unless she tells him “a great story.” Watch The Stranger teaser below.

Black and White movies supercut

Ever since motion pictures began adopting Technicolor, the once-traditional use of black and white photography eventually went out the window. After all, an overwhelming majority of the population sees the world in full color, so why wouldn’t they want to see movies in the same way?

But while most of our movies are presented in color today, whether it’s tinted, saturated, toned, there are still plenty of respectable and mesmerizing movies from past and present that look positively stunning in black and white. From Stanley Kubrick’s Killer’s Kiss in 1955 to Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List in 1993 to last year’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, there’s some amazing black and white imagery here.
