There’s a new trailer for Dune: Part Two and it’s absolutely everything. From the relationship between Zendaya’s Chani and Timothée Chalamet’s Paul Atreides to insight into Florence Pugh’s character of Princess Irulen to a look at the bald Austin Butler as Feyd Rautha Harkonnen, we get a peek into the enigmatic and visually enchanting follow-up to the 2021 masterpiece. “In the shadows of Arrakis lie many secrets, but the darkest of them all may remain: the end of House Atreides,” says Florence Pugh. We will have to wait until November 3, when the film is out in theatres, to find out the full truth.
From a look into Florence Pugh alongside Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet in Dune: Part Two to a peek into the Hunger Games prequel, this week’s trailer roundup is here.
Dune: Part Two
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The first trailer for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is here! Starring Rachel Zegler and Tom Blyth, alongside Viola Davis and Hunter Schafer, the prequel follows Coriolanus Snow’s journey prior to becoming the president of Panem. As the Hunger Games forms a new focus on the “spectacle” aspect to raise viewership, many of the traditions we know from the Games are started. The trailer focuses on the relationship between Blyth’s Snow and Zegler’s Lucy Gray Baird, as Snow mentors the headstrong tribute from District 12. We see typical motifs of the series, such as Snow’s roses, and references to its beloved characters, such as Lucy’s mocking courtesy reminiscent of Katniss. Throughout the trailer, Dr. Gaul delivers a bone-chilling speech, reminding us how quickly a civilisation can lose its humanity. The film is out November 17.
The Witcher: Season 3
Netflix released a new trailer for The Witcher: Season 3 with a caption reading, “this summer, everything changes.” With the first installment dropping on June 29th, the season marks Henry Cavill’s final episodes as Geralt of Rivia — before Liam Hemsworth takes over for Season 4. In the first shot of the trailer, we see Cavill’s face change into an evil state, with red veins and soulless eyes, upon taking a sip from a drink. “Now for the first time, I understand real fear,” he says. With a focus on Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), this season is set to focus on the key trio’s emotional bond. And as they yell out for one another in the trailer, we get a glimpse into how powerful it is.
Black Mirror: Season Six
“You’ve been wondering. You’ve been waiting. You’ve been warned.” That’s the tagline of Emmy Award winning Black Mirror’s sixth season, which promises to be the most hectic season yet. In Netflix’s new trailer, we see a classic Black Mirror combination of science fiction and real life — but infused with a bit more physical action. Spaceships and car rides, dial-up internet and smartphones, and violence at a shop counter and paparazzi flashing lights are only some of the many clips we see from the upcoming season. Black Mirror Season 6, featuring Zazie Beetz, Michael Cera, and Aaron Paul, comes out this June on Netflix.
If you could rewrite your past, would you? The second trailer for The Flash is here and we’re contemplating everything. In a story as introspective as it is exciting, Ezra Miller is Barry Allen — the DC Comics superhero known as Flash who rewrites history. The trailer shows Miller’s character as he struggles to heal from his childhood trauma and the death of his parents, leading him to go back in time to save them. It gives us a peek into the disruption that his action sparks in a present-day world — and, spoiler alert, it’s chaotic. Ben Affleck and Sasha Calle star alongside Miller in the thought-provoking action film, as Batman and Supergirl. “The scars we have make us who we are,” Affleck’s character says in the trailer. “We’re not meant to go back and fix them”.
We also have a release date — June 16 — so get ready!
