Conversations With Friends trailer reveals a secret affair

Two years ago, Hulu and BBC Three adapted Sally Rooney’s second novel, Normal People, as a miniseries. Later this year, BBC Three and Hulu are reteaming for a new adaptation of Rooney’s debut novel, Conversations With Friends. Now, the first trailer for the miniseries has arrived, and it reveals the complicated relationships within.

The main characters are Frances and Bobbi, two young women who were previously in a relationship with each other. Despite the end of their romance, Frances and Bobbi are still seemingly joined at the hip. They even perform spoken word poetry together. However, their unity is challenged when they meet another couple, Melissa and Nick. And while the couples are fast friends, it isn’t long until Frances and Nick develop an undeniable attraction to each other.

The trailer, we see the first moments of Frances and Nick’s extramarital affair. Subsequently, Frances openly questions whether the affair makes them bad people. The other half of each couple aren’t entirely blameless. Melissa and Bobbi are openly flirting in front of Nick and Frances. The key difference is that Frances and Bobbi aren’t together anymore. Regardless, both Bobbi and Melissa will likely see the affair as a betrayal.

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, there was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment where it was revealed that Nick Fury's absence from Earth is known among Damage Control's agents. And the last time we saw Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was somewhere out in space with the Skrulls enjoying a vacation of sorts. But the vacation is over in the upcoming series, Secret Invasion. In the latest trailer for the series, Fury is not only back on Earth, but he's also the most wanted man in the world!

The Flash’s new trailer reveals a world without superheroes
Ezra Miller in The Flash.

Perhaps the only thing more alarming than running into Pennywise the Dancing Clown would be to encounter two Ezra Millers in a bad mood. But regardless of what the embattled actor has done in the past, Miller is headlining The Flash as two different versions of Barry Allen. The good news is that Warner Bros. has so much faith in the work of It director Andy Muschietti's work that The Flash is being screened today at CinemaCon, well over a month before it hits theaters. Those of us who aren't in Las Vegas will just have to settle for a rousing trailer, which you can see below.
