Cruise life takes a dark turn with a killer duck on the loose in first trailer for Wreck

Do not adjust your glasses. You read the headline correctly. A killer duck is on the loose aboard a cruise ship in the first trailer for Freemantle’s series Wreck.

In the horror comedy series, Jamie Walsh (Ladhood’s Oscar Kennedy) is a 19-year-old who takes a job aboard The MS Sacramentum cruise ship to investigate the disappearance of his sister. Jamie’s sister was working on the ship during its last charter, but went missing midway through the trip. Jamie slowly gets initiated into cruise life and the different groups that exist below deck. As Jamie learns more secrets aboard the ship, murders begin to take place at the hands of a murderer in a killer duck mask. Wreck combines British comedy with slasher horror for a six-episode season.

The first Fargo season 2 trailer takes us to a new era, introduces new cast
fx premiere dates fargo season 2

The first trailer for Fargo season 2 is here, and even though the series has moved to another time and place, it will still be jam-packed with blood, tears, punches, and cops. Along with the violence, the video weaves in the dark humor that the FX comedy-crime drama does so well.

"Do yourself a favor. Lock the door," is a major takeaway from the trailer (as well as the video's description on FX Network's YouTube channel), because it's clear that things are going to get dicey. Now set in 1979 and focusing on Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Luverne, Minnesota, in addition to Fargo, the plot lines will remain connected to the larger Fargo universe. Patrick Wilson will play a younger version of police officer Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in the first season, while Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons star as Peggy and Ed Blomquist.
