Dead Ringers trailer has twice the Rachel Weisz

Rachel Weisz (Black Widow) is in double the trouble as the Oscar winner plays twins in Prime Video’s upcoming series Dead Ringers, which released its official trailer on Wednesday morning. The psychological thriller is a gender-flipped adaption of David Cronenberg’s 1988 film of the same name starring Jeremy Irons (House of Gucci).

Weisz plays Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twin gynecologists looking to push the limits of medical ethics and revolutionize women’s health care. As one of the twins says in the trailer, they do work that is “groundbreaking, but hopeful.” The twins are disturbingly codependent, as the women share everything from drugs to lovers and ideals. Set to the Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, the trailer shows how the twins seek to change how women give birth, even if it involves radical measures.

The ensemble cast includes Britne Oldford (The Umbrella Academy) as Genevieve, Michael Chernus (Severance) as Tom, Poppy Liu (Better Call Saul) as Greta, Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty) as Rebecca, Emily Meade (The Leftovers) as Susan, and Jeremy Shamos (The Undoing) as Joseph.

Dead Ringers is created and written by Alice Birch (The Wonder), who has written episodes of Succession and Normal People. Sean Durk (The Iron Claw) directed the first two episodes and co-directed the last episode. Other directors include Karena Evans (Snowfall), Lauren Wolkstein (A Friend of the Family), and Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body). Weisz, Birch, and Durkin will executive produce. The series is a co-production from Amazon Studios and Annapurna Television.

A ‘Game of Thrones’ fan has made the ultimate season 7 trailer

HBO's marketing team can take a break, because one enthusiastic Game of Thrones fan is helping them do their job. Recycling the season 7 footage released so far, YouTube user Sebastian Hughes has created the "ultimate trailer" -- a preview that absolutely lives up to its name.

Hughes had great source material to work with, thanks to HBO, but there is no arguing that the trailer is compelling in its own right. By combining footage from multiple previews, it is able to offer a more comprehensive look at the upcoming season than any of the previous ones have. The mashup is done very logically, too, with each individual character's scenes cut together in a way that, in most cases, lays out their season 7 goals and/or motivations. That is helpful, considering how many key players are involved and the fact that a year has now passed since the season 6 finale aired.

Rick’s back and ready to rumble in season 7 back-half trailer for ‘The Walking Dead’
The Walking Dead Season 7

While those of us who watched it are still reeling from the midseason finale of The Walking Dead which aired last night, AMC has already revealed a new trailer for season 7 of the series in February 2017. Warning: spoilers concerning the season finale ahead.

We left the group with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) realizing that caving to the demands of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) isn’t going to cut it. Clearly, Negan will do as he pleases, and find a warped and psychopathic way to justify it. He killed Spencer (Austin Nichols) to help Rick since Spencer was lobbying to take over. Aaron (Ross Marquand) was beaten up because his attackers felt like it. And Olivia (Ann Mahoney), well, she was just collateral damage. But they did Rick a favor since she was obviously significantly cutting into the food supply. It took these events and a pep talk from Michonne (Danai Gurira) to finally convince Rick that enough was enough.

Get ready to cry watching the season 7 trailer for ‘The Walking Dead’
walking dead negan comic con the season 7 poster

The trailer for the upcoming seventh season of hit AMC drama The Walking Dead was revealed at a Comic-Con panel Friday, and it will tug at your heartstrings and leave you reeling. Warning: major spoilers ahead.

Naturally, at the top of every mind is who did Negan kill, which will be revealed in the first episode. But that doesn’t stop the three-minute trailer from twisting the knife deep into the hearts of viewers by showing each potential victim’s face accompanied by clouded flashback scenes. There’s Glenn and Maggie staring lovingly into one another’s eyes, Rick embracing a young and once innocent Carl, Daryl feeding little Judith, glimpses of that budding romance between Abraham and Sasha -- the list goes on. Throwing one last bit of salt into the wound is a clip of Rick saying, “As long as it’s all of us, we can do anything.” Clearly, the group will soon be at least one person short of “all of us.” (And the latest theories suggest it may actually be two.)
