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.

3 underrated movies you need to watch in May 2024
A man leans against a wall in The Fall Guy.

April was a bit of a low-key month for movies, but there was still plenty of pleasure to be had at the theater. Indies were well-represented with the surreal sci-fi movie The Beast while multiplexes enjoyed the social commentary and IMAX action set pieces of Alex Garland's appropriately divisive Civil War.

May, however, will be a different story, as the summer season is set to begin on May 3 with the premiere of The Fall Guy, an action comedy starring everyone's favorite actor of the moment, Ryan Gosling. May will also see apes conquesting another planet, a biopic about Amy Winehouse that's already enraged people on social media, a different take on the slasher movie genre, and one of the most highly anticipated prequels of the last decade. Oh, and Garfield's back. Again. Which of these are worth seeing? Find out by checking out our top three picks out of all the movies scheduled for release in May 2024.
