Caitlin Moran breathes life into her bestselling autobiographical novel for this coming-of-age comedy. Taking us from Midland council houses to backstage at a Sex Pistols concert, American star Beanie Feldstein plays a friendless nerdy sixth-former trying to reinvent herself as a super cool music journalist Dolly Wilde, while battling the sexist creeps and the dark side of the music industry. Starring Game of Thrones Alfie Allen and all-around superstar Dame Emma Thompson, we can’t wait to be thrown back in time for this coming of age tale.
How To Build a Girl and Dead To Me returns for season two in the film and TV trailers we’re obsessing over rn.
How To Build A Girl
It’s a good trailer when you’re left with an abundance of questions and theories. Dangerous Lies stars Riverdale actress Camila Mendes as Katie Franklin, a former struggling waitress taking a job as a caretaker to a wealthy elderly man. An untimely death leads to Katie inheriting all of his money and property but a complex web of lies, deception and murder is not far behind. If you loved Netflix’s Secret Obsession you’ll love this.
Selah and the Spades
An elite boarding school with self-possessed teenagers run this Pennsylvanian boarding school drama. Tayarisha Poe makes her feature film debut with Greenleaf actress Lovie Simone and newcomer Celeste O’Connor in this Gossip Girl style film. Cheerleader Selah is a senior in high school and is searching for her successor to take over her drug-dealing faction the Spades, with her right-hand man Maxxie, played by When They See Us actor Jharrel Jerome aiding and supporting her. The trailer feels very Euphoriaand Mean Girls with a small dash of Jordan Peele – we can’t wait!
Nicholas Hoult has given us range over the years, from a love-struck zombie to a blue furry mutant, and now he’s back as Russian Emperor Peter the Third – starring alongside Elle Fanning in this satirical comedic mini-series documenting the rise of Catherine the Great. Hoping for love and sunshine, a young romantic Catherine arrives in 18th-century Russia for an arranged marriage between her and Peter, and is thrown into the dangerous, deprived and backward world of Russian politics, and of course, marriage. The series provides much need comic relief in these challenging times and we’re buzzing for it.
From the director of the Oscar-winning film La La Land, comes Damien Chazelle’s new musical series The Eddy. Starring wonderbabe and former cover star Amandla Steinberg, the eight-part Netflix series follows Elliot Udo, a once-famous jazz musician who now owns a struggling club in the heart of Paris. The mini-series trailer promises plenty of fantastical musical numbers composed by Grammy Award Winner Glen Ballard to go along with the emotional drama, and we can’t think of a better series to binge watch for the rest of quarantine.
Dead To Me, S2
They say misery loves company, but when company comes in the form of free spirit Judy… run. The series takes us through an unlikely friendship between two grieving widows with polar opposite personalities. Jen’s cynical and blunt personality leaves her determined to find who killed her husband in a hit and run; and then there’s Judy, who is trying to shield Jen from the shocking secret that could destroy her life. The first series aired last year on Netflix and we were left with a nail-biting cliffhanger, but with the show returning in May, we can’t wait to pick up where we left off with the dynamic duo.
