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.

This article contains spoilers for 1899 season 1.

1899 is a weird, dense sci-fi series. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who watched Dark, the previous Netflix original series from 1899 creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar. After stringing out its mysteries across its first six episodes, though, 1899’s final two installments finally offer the answers to many of the questions that were introduced in the show’s premiere. 1899 episode 7 even confirms, via a key line of dialogue from Daniel Solace (Aneurin Barnard), that the show’s steamship-centric world is, indeed, part of a simulation.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio trailer reimagines the classic tale
A happy moment from Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio.

It may seem like Pinocchio is some timeless fairy tale that has been with us forever, but it's a relatively recent story that was written by Italian author Carlo Collodi in 1883. Collodi's original novel was considerably darker than the two Disney adaptations, including the one that came out earlier this year. There's also quite a bit of darkness in director Guillermo del Toro's take on the classic tale of the puppet who wants to be human. And as you can see in the trailer below, Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio also embraces a bit of whimsy and pathos that the Disney films lacked.

Glass Onion trailer unveils a new Knives Out murder mystery
Daniel Craig in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

In the original Knives Out, the film established that Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc was a world-famous detective from the moment he was first shown on screen. Thanks to the success of that film, Blanc's one-off murder mystery has become a full-blown franchise. In the first of two Netflix-produced sequels, Blanc will return to theaters later this month in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. And unlike the previous movie, Blanc is a part of the mystery from the very first moment.
