Love tears Harry Styles apart in My Policeman’s new trailer

Love is never easy even under the best of circumstances. And the circumstances are far from ideal in Prime Video‘s upcoming film, My Policeman. Harry Styles, one of the leads of Don’t Worry Darling, headlines the film as Tom Burgess, a police officer in the ’50s who has to hide the fact that he’s secretly gay. It was a different time back then, and even the hint of homosexuality could ruin lives. That’s why Tom married a school teacher named Marion Taylor. Marion truly loves Tom, but the titular policeman only has eyes for a local museum curator, Patrick Hazlewood. And that’s a volatile love triangle that may ultimately destroy all three of them.

The trailer primarily explores Tom’s bond with Patrick. In a different time and place, they wouldn’t have had to hide who they are. But by bringing Marion into his life, Tom is only inviting disaster. Marion is obviously upset that her husband loves someone more than he loves her. Especially when it’s another man. And in that era, Marion could potentially expose her rival and brand him a pariah. But she may not be prepared for the consequences of her own actions.

The cast of My Policeman.

The Crown‘s Emma Corrin co-stars in the film as Marion Taylor, with David Dawson as Patrick Hazlewood. Additionally, the scenes set in the ’90s will feature older versions of the leading characters as the repercussions of their decisions catch up to them later in life. Linus Roache appears as an older version of Tom, with Gina McKee as the older Marion, and Rupert Everett as the older Patrick.

Michael Grandage directed the film from a script by Ron Nyswaner based upon Bethan Roberts’ novel, My Policeman. The film will get a limited theatrical release on October 21.

Stranger things are happening in Paper Girls’ new trailer
The cast of Paper Girls.

In the next few weeks, you're going to see a lot of comparisons between Prime Video's new series Paper Girls and Netflix's breakout smash Stranger Things. It's a comparison that even we've made before, and it may seem like Prime Video is jumping on the bandwagon with this series. However, it's based on the Paper Girls comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang that debuted in 2015, almost a year before Stranger Things. The nostalgia factor is high in the first full trailer for the series, as we're about to go back to the '80s once again. And that's where things get weird ... and strange.

And in the first trailer, an international team of experts attempt to find a way to pull off the impossible. But even the most generous risk assessment suggests that there will be causalities.

My Fake Boyfriend review: A too-guilty pleasure of a rom-com
Andrew hangs out with his friends in My fake Boyfriend.

Is it progress to say that gay rom-coms can be as silly and stupid as straight ones? That's the dilemma one encounters when watching My Fake Boyfriend, a superficial entry into the world of romantic comedy that has no business being as enjoyable as it is. The thin material, stretched even thinner by an overabundance of jarring needle drops and conspicuous product placement, is saved by its trio of lead actors ... but only just barely.

The film is the latest release from Buzzfeed Studios, and it feels exactly like one of those pop culture lists that website churns out every 10 minutes: Short, peppy, and disposable, leaving you with a feeling of no knowledge gained and some time consumed, albeit pleasurably. It seems designed for viewers with nothing better to do, which is the highest praise one can give a film like this.
A decent premise
