A rush of TV promo trailers today worth a look.
HBO has unveiled a new teaser trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s “The New Pope,” its John Malkovich and Jude Law-led follow-up season to “The Young Pope”.
This time around, the Pope will be played by Malkovich whose character calls himself “irresponsible, indolent, pompous, conceited”. Law reprises his role of now former Pope Lenny Belardo. All nine episodes were directed by Sorrentino and the new season debuts January 2020.
Next, Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the second season of the cult comedy “The End of the F–king World”. The series picks up with Alyssa trying to figure out what to do next, but when she meets Bonnie, things begin to change once again. Jessica Barden and Naomi Ackie star with Charlie Covell once again penning all the episodes. The series returns November 5th.
Showtime has unleashed the first trailer for “Work in Progress,” the series launching December 9th that both stars Chicago improv superstar Abby McEnany and is produced by “The Matrix” co-director Lilly Wachowski.
McEnany plays a queer woman who struggles with her own neuroses, anxieties, and obsessions. When McEnany meets a new person in her life — a young trans man (Theo Germaine) who is attracted to McEnany immediately – she just might find the love she’s been looking for if her neuroses, anxieties, and obsessions don’t screw it all up first.
Netflix has released a trailer for the third season of its animated series “The Dragon Prince”. As war looms closer than ever, only the Dragon Prince is capable of healing the divide that threatens to tear the world to pieces. Though initially critically slammed, the series has improved and its third run of nine episodes debuts November 22nd.
Finally, and after their success with short films, Pixar began SparkShorts – a short film program aiming to cultivate new talent. Now, all six animated shorts from rising directors will soon debut on Disney+ this November at launch and a trailer for them has been released below. The shorts are titled “Float,” “Purl,” “Smash and Grab,” Kitbull,” “Wind,” and “Loop”.
