Netflix put out a summer sizzle reel earlier today...
...and amid all the random celebrities acting corny and one pretty cute Zack Snyder joke/cameo, we saw brief glimpses of each of the following genre properties:
Army of the Dead (see the full trailer here):
The most fleeting look of anything else Netflix debuted today, but it's still got a good amount of action, and the footage focuses more on – as a popcorn-munching Kevin Hart points out – "zombie Elvis" than "a goddamn zombie tiger."
Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans:
Guillermo del Toro teased a new announcement last night, and while the most diehard hope-against-hopers were clamoring for an At the Mountains of Madness update (keep the dream alive!), it was today's Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans trailer instead.
Here it is: RISE OF THE TITANS date! July 21st!! Watch the teaser here!! They will rise! https://t.co/88rXfQdoxO— Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) April 27, 2021
The Woman in the Window (see the full trailer here):
I can't actually confirm that the few seconds we catch of The Woman in the Window offers anything outside of what we saw in the trailer, but this long-delayed film is finally getting air time and that alone is worth noting.
Saving the absolutely most exciting for last (after all, Netflix did), we get our first real examination of Netflix's Fear Street trilogy, which are debuting one a month, all directed by Honeymoon and Scream: The TV Series' Leigh Janiak, and (of course) based on R.L. Stine's blockbuster YA horror series of the same name. Bloody Disgusting has the scoop on the individual films:
Movie 1: In 1994, in the aftermath of a brutal tragedy in Shadyside, Ohio, a group of teens discover that a series of horrifying events that have plagued their town over many years might not be random, and that they may be the next victims.
Movie 2: In 1978, Camp Nightwing is divided by the campers and counselors who hail from the of prosperous town of Sunnyvale and the campers and maintenance staffers from the downtrodden town of Shadyside, but when horrors from their towns shared history come alive, they must band together to solve a terrifying mystery before it’s too late.
Movie 3: In 1666, a colonial town is gripped by a hysterical witch-hunt that has deadly consequences for centuries to come, and it’s up to teenagers in 1994 to try and finally put an end to their town’s curse, before it’s too late.
