New trailers: Castlevania, West Side Story, Sweet Tooth, Luca, and more
Simply began watching season 4 of The Handmaid’s Story and I bear in mind why I desire the weekly launch schedule for this present: Bingeing it’s completely draining (Monica Hesse makes this level a lot more eloquently in her principally spoiler-free overview within the Washington Submit). The present has a conundrum: it might’t kill off its essential character (which might be an unimaginable plot twist) and it might’t take her out of Gilead as a result of that’s the place the motion is. So June has to maintain struggling over and over. And over. After the primary three episodes, June’s accomplished loads of struggling already. Over the remainder of the season I’m actually hoping to see A) a lot more of Alexis Bledel and Samira Wiley and B) one thing good occur to June. Something.
Right here’s the roundup of this week’s trailers:
West Side Story
Steven Spielberg’s remake of the traditional musical seems to be quite a bit like the unique 1961 movie at first look (this side-by-side comparability from YouTuber Matt Skuta reveals the various variations). However whereas the sooner movie included white actors in make-up to play a number of the Puerto Rican characters, Spielberg sought performers of Puerto Rican descent for his up to date model. The spectacular Rita Moreno, who starred within the unique as Anita seems within the Spielberg model, and can be an govt producer on the movie. West Side Story hits theaters (after a prolonged COVID-related delay) in December.
The newest 10-episode season of Castlevania goes again to “the place it began,” in keeping with the brand new trailer. The official synopsis from Netflix says “Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions conflict” and mentions makes an attempt to carry Dracula again from the useless (!!). “These are the top occasions.” That is the ultimate season with this forged of characters (Deadline has reported Netflix could launch a brand new sequence within the Castlevania-verse however with completely different characters), so count on loads of blood. Season 4 of Castlevania drops on Netflix Could thirteenth.
OK in order a mother or father, I’m all the time a bit cautious of Disney/Pixar films, as a result of they’re sometimes emotionally devastating for fogeys to look at (see: Discovering Nemo, or maybe Inside Out, or perhaps the ultimate scene of Toy Story 3) (aaand I simply cried once more dammit). Luca is the story of two younger sea monsters who turn out to be human once they’re not within the water as they discover the floor world in a seaside city on the Italian Riviera. Appears secure sufficient and the trailer seems to be lovely however Pixar all the time will get you, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. Luca hits Disney Plus on June 18th.
Sweet Tooth is a post-apocalyptic fairytale based mostly on a DC Comedian, with Robert Downey, Jr. as govt producer (is that probably the most Verge-y sentence I’ve ever written? Presumably.). Our hero is a really cute hybrid deer-boy performed by Christian Convery, who’s trying to find a brand new starting after society has been upended by one thing known as The Nice Crumble. Sweet Tooth arrives on Netflix June 4th.
Rick and Morty Season 5
The second trailer for season 5 of Rick and Morty picks up the place the primary trailer left off, which is to say, in the midst of a chaotic house battle? with cyberpunk birds? that may be a parody of the Energy Rangers? Positive, why not. Rick and Morty returns to Grownup Swim on June twentieth.
