Apple TV+ drops the first teaser for comedy thriller Sharper

It’s never too early to begin promoting next year’s movies. And Apple TV+ is getting a head start with its new comedy thriller, Sharper. The first teaser for the film doesn’t really tell us much of anything about it. Instead, it relies on the star power of its five leading cast members, only three of whom actually speak in the video. This is more about setting the mood than anything else, even though plot information is withheld as if it was a state secret.


Julianne Moore’s character is the one who says “if they’re not looking for you, they don’t see you,” while Sebastian Stan’s character adds that “you can’t cheat an honest man.”  Justice Smith and Briana Middleton are only briefly shown, but they don’t get a chance to offer any lines. Instead, it’s John Lithgow’s voice that closes the teaser with some sage advice: “If you’re gonna steal, steal a lot.”

That doesn’t exactly tell us what to expect, although the “bad boy” expression that Stan strikes at the end says a lot about who he’s playing. Perhaps he’s the one listening to the words of Lithgow’s character.

Apple TV+’s synopsis for the film is not very descriptive at all, but it is all we have to go on at the moment.

Sharper unfolds within the secrets of New York City, from the penthouses of Fifth Avenue to the shadowy corners of Queens. Motivations are suspect and expectations are turned upside down when nothing is as it seems.”

Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka wrote the script for Sharper, which landed a place on The Black List in 2020. Benjamin Caron directed the film, which will premiere on Apple TV+ on February 17, 2023.

Via Deadline, Ford is slated to star in Shrinking, a new Apple TV+ original comedy opposite Jason Segel. From the description provided by Apple TV+, Segel's role is the main character. He is described as a grieving therapist who starts to "break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks.

And no one can say that Apple didn't line up some very big names!

One of the most impressive new projects is Luck, an animated feature from Skydance Animation that seems to have captured the flavor of Pixar's early films. Eva Noblezada stars as Sam, a young woman who may be the unluckiest person in the entire world. After finding a literal lucky penny, Sam discovers that she has been transported to the Land of Luck, which is populated by talking magical creatures as voiced by Jane Fond, Lil Rel Howery, Whoopi Goldberg, Simon Pegg, and John Ratzenberger.
