Maggie and Negan unite in The Walking Dead: Dead City’s new trailer

Anyone who has ever watched The Walking Dead probably knows why the premise of the upcoming spinoff miniseries, The Walking Dead: Dead City, is more than a little bit flimsy. That’s because it pairs Maggie Rhees (Lauren Cohan) with the man who murdered her husband, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). And despite Negan’s efforts to reform, Maggie has never entirely let go of that grudge. But in the new trailer for Dead City, it appears that their reunion is not a coincidence. Someone from Negan’s past is luring him into a trap, and he’s using Maggie to set the bait.

Who is the mutual enemy of both Maggie and Negan? For now, all we know is that he is called The Croat (Željko Ivanek), and that he personally led the raid where Maggie’s son, Hershel (Logan Kim), was kidnapped. It’s not clear how Maggie made the link between Negan and The Croat, but she does strong-arm her former adversary into accompanying her into Manhattan, which remains hopelessly overrun by zombie hordes.

Regardless, there are some human survivors in Manhattan who are sympathetic toward Maggie and Negan’s shared mission. There are also plenty of adversaries, as well as some truly horrifying new walkers. In this trailer alone, multiple walkers appear to have fused into an even bigger zombie with multiple limbs. It’s by far the scariest-looking walker that the franchise has produced in a long time.

Gaius Charles co-stars in the six-episode event miniseries as Perlie Armstrong, with Jonathan Higginbotham as Tommaso, Mahina Napoleon as Ginny, Trey Santiago-Hudson as Jano, Charlie Solis as The Bartender, and Michael Anthony as Luther.

The Walking Dead: Dead City will premiere on AMC and AMC+ on Sunday, June 18.

Dead Ringers trailer has twice the Rachel Weisz
dead ringers trailer rachel weisz prime video

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.

Blood, gore, and demons return in Evil Dead Rise trailer
A woman with a bloody face holds a chainsaw in a scene from Evil Dead Rise.

The next chapter in the Evil Dead franchise takes the action from the woods to the city in Evil Dead Rise. The first trailer is bloody, gory, and full of Deadites. In other words, it's an Evil Dead movie.

Beth (I Met a Girl's Lily Sullivan) travels to Los Angeles to visit her older sister, Elie (Vikings's Alyssa Sutherland), and her three children. Elie struggles to raise the children as a single mother in their cramped L.A. apartment, so Beth's visit is much appreciated. However, the reunion is cut short when they find the Necronomicon, a book from previous Evil Dead films, in Ellie's building. The evil book unleashes the Deadites, flesh-possessing demons that wreak havoc and bring the horrors of hell to earth. As Elie becomes possessed, Beth becomes a defacto mother as she protects the children while battling the Deadites in all their bloody glory.
