Now and Then trailer reveals blackmail and hidden secrets

Next month, Apple TV+ is unleashing Now and Then, a new bilingual thriller that follows six friends across two decades, and the secret that has strained their bond for 20 years. In the first trailer for the series, we witness the beach party where things went wrong. One of the friends, Alejandro, suddenly becomes deathly ill. And as the group races to save Alejandro, they end up taking someone else’s life in a fatal car accident.

The decision to keep the accident a secret may have kept the group out of jail, but it opens them up to blackmail in the present. It also means that they’ve made an enemy out of Flora (Rosie Perez), a police detective who is determined to expose the friends when they reenter her orbit as murder suspects.

Stranger Things 4 trailer teases dark times on the horizon
The cast of Stranger Things 4.

Are you familiar with the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, and its connection to the Upside Down? The new Stranger Things 4 trailer has arrived, and it's proving just how little we've truly learned in the first three seasons. The one thing we do know is that the evil from the Upside Down is not some abstract being. It has a voice, and it has a plan. And for the first time, we truly get to see what it looks like in an almost human form.

There's not a lot in the trailer that sheds light on specific plot points. But we do see Eleven approached by the same organization that once gave her powers. And the man has a warning that Eleven can't ignore. Humanity can't prevail against the Upside Down without her, and she doesn't have any powers left. Meanwhile in Hawkins, Max's graveside visit to her brother is both confession and revelation. But is Max being attacked by something, or has she come into her own powers?

Colin Firth and Toni Collette in The Staircase.

If you know the name Michael Peterson, t's probably not because you've read one of his novels. Instead, Peterson's claim to infamy is his sensational trial near the turn of the 21st century for the murder of his wife, Kathleen Peterson. Incredibly, Peterson allowed a French documentary crew to record him and his family in the aftermath of the murder charge. Now, HBO Max is dramatizing the story of Michael and Kathleen Peterson in a new miniseries called The Staircase.

In the first trailer for The Staircase, Michael discovers the body of his wife at the bottom of the staircase with head trauma. However, suspicion soon turns to Michael himself due to some sordid details in his personal life coming to light. Regardless, Michael is so convinced that he will be found innocent that he opens up his family to additional scrutiny from outsiders.
