From the newest look into The Weeknd’s The Idol to a preview of Pete Davidson’s semi-true story — this week’s trailer round-up is here.

The Boogeyman

20th Century Studios has released a second trailer for The Boogeyman and it’s just as scary as you may have imagined. The adaptation of Stephen King’s 1973 short story is set to release in theatres on June 2. The horror-thriller directed by Rob Savage follows a teenage girl as she and her sister cope with the death of their mother, an unexpected sadistic supernatural presence, and a grieving father whose attention is elsewhere. Just from the trailer, it is bound to evoke your inner childhood fears and mess with your heart and brain. Starring Yellowjacket’s Sophie Thatcher and ​​The Mindy Project’s Chris Messina, Savage’s self-proclaimed scariest movie yet supposedly had to be re-edited after terrifying viewers. Watch at your own risk — but we cannot wait.

All The Light We Cannot See

Netflix’s upcoming limited series officially has a trailer. The four-part show is adapted from the 2014 novel by Anthony Doerr, which received a Pulitzer Prize and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction in addition to critical acclaim and weeks on bestsellers lists. The trailer gives us a peek into the world of Marie-Laure, a blind French teenager, and Werner, a young German soldier, as their paths cross during an effort to survive World War II. Even without spoken dialogue, the trailer evokes intense emotion and displays the power of human connection that the series is bound to showcase. It serves as lead-actress Aria Mia Loberti’s debut project, and further stars Louis Hofmann and Mark Ruffalo. Directed and produced by Shawn Levy, All The Light We Cannot See will be released on November 2.

The Idol

After some scandalous rumours and the first three tantalising teasers — the fourth official teaser for the sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood is finally here, and with it, a release date for the moment we can binge on Tesfaye and Levinson’s tale of a not-so-relatable pop star who becomes romantically involved with an LA club owner and cult leader. Premiering June 4, the show documents the ‘sex-sells’ narrative in Hollywood with a cast as star-studded as its glittery visuals. This trailer sees Lily Rose-Depp‘s character once again indulging in fame, although this time showcases in greater detail the struggles of popstar life and the brainwashing nature of her relationship with Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye’s character. Fittingly set to the sound of Britney Spears’ “Gimme More”, this trailer makes us even more excited for the show — if that’s even possible.


A peek into a peek into Pete Davidson’s life is here with the official trailer for Bupkis. The comedy stars Davidson as himself in a hyper-exaggerated version of real life events and from the trailer we gain a little insight into the plot. In a combination of Pete’s beloved style of comedy and a heart wrenching earnestness, we see the star deal with rumours, struggle to understand himself, and get accused of running away from those who love him. It shows the highs and lows of being a public figure as the Saturday Night Live alum indulges in excess, googles himself, drives around carelessly, laughs and screams, and makes the world laugh. The Peacock series, also starring Joe Pesci, Chase Sui Wonders, and Edie Falco, premieres on May 4.

Sam: A Saxon

The mini-series based on a true story takes us into the challenging and devastating time of the Cold War in East Germany. It follows Samuel Meffire, the first Black police officer in East Germany, as he spreads hope and rises as the face of an anti-racism campaign. The trailer gives us an insight into Sam’s trajectory as he grapples with personal and professional struggles, discrimination, and prejudice in the country he calls home. The seven episode-series is a German Disney+ original and has been in the works for over fifteen years. Co-creators Jörg Winger and Tyron Ricketts believe that only in the past few years German viewers have been ready to engage with the project, as the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests sparked conversations and opened a dialogue for discussions regarding racism in the country. Starring Malick Bauer as Sam, the powerful, upsetting, and important story is out on Hulu on April 26.
