1899 trailer teases mystery at sea from Dark creators

Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, the creators behind Dark, are back with a new supernatural horror series called 1899. The German series is a mysterious tale set at sea and centers on a ship that encounters a missing vessel, which leads to a nightmare scenario for the passengers on board.

The Kerberos is a ship full of diverse European immigrants heading to New York in search of a better life. During their treacherous journey, the Kerebos comes into contact with the Prometheus, another ship that was believed to have gone missing during the previous months. The abandoned Prometheus begins to haunt the passengers of the Kerebos, leading to a series of strange, unexplainable occurrences.

1899 stars Emily Beecham as Maura Franklin, who is best known for her roles in Into The Badlands, Cruella, and The Pursuit of Love. The large ensemble also includes Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann, Anton Lesser, Maciej Musiał, Miguel Bernardeau, Rosalie Craig, Mathilde Ollivier, Jonas Bloquet, Martin Greis-Rosenthal, José Pimentão, Isabella Wei, and Gabby Wong.

This new series marks the second collaboration between Netflix and creators Friese and Odar. Dark, their previous series with the streamer, depicted a time-traveling mystery set in a German town after the disappearance of two young children. The series became Netflix’s first German-language original series upon its debut in 2017. It lasted for three seasons and ended up on many critics’ “Top 10” lists for 2020.

The series will consist of eight episodes. The first two episodes of 1899 premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival.

1899 streams globally on Netflix on November 17.

The Acolyte’s first trailer embraces the Dark Side of Star Wars
Amandla Stenberg in The Acolyte.

Since the launch of Disney+ in 2019, there have been four live-action Star Wars series, including The Mandalorian and Andor. But the one thing that each of those shows had in common was that they followed the hero of the story. This summer, The Acolyte is flipping the switch on that by putting the spotlight on Mae (Amandla Stenberg), a former Padawan in the Jedi Order who seems to have quite a grudge against her onetime masters. That may be why Mae is attacking and apparently killing Jedi with knives in the first trailer for The Acolyte.

Painkiller meets horror in The Fall of the House of Usher trailer
Bruce Greenwood in The Fall of the House of Usher.

If you've ever read Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, then you know that it doesn't have a story long enough to support eight episodes of television. However, for Mike Flanagan's final project at Netflix, the upcoming miniseries for The Fall of the House of Usher will be drawing upon more than just Poe's original story. Flanagan incorporates elements of Poe's other tales to expand the story of the doomed Usher family. And if the first trailer is any indication, Flanagan is also adding a touch of Painkiller and Succession to the gothic horror of Poe.

Netflix debuts first trailer for Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon
Jimmy the Robot Knight in "Rebel Moon."

In the early 1980s, one of the first responses to Star Wars was a legion of low-budget imitators, including the Roger Corman-produced film Battle Beyond the Stars. Director Zack Snyder has made no secret of the fact that Rebel Moon was originally his pitch for a Star Wars movie before Disney purchased Lucasfilm. And the early story elements from this film also seemed to lift some of the plot from Battle Beyond the Stars. But now that the first teaser trailer for the flick has arrived, it's showing even more Star Wars influence than we expected, including a look at glowing blue and red swords that shamelessly resemble lightsabers.
