Streaming trailers of the week

1. Charm City Kings

Winner of the US Dramatic Special Jury Prize at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, Charm City Kings is an upcoming HBO Max film based on urban dirt bikers of West Baltimore. It tells the coming-of-age story of a 14-year-old boy named Mouse (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) who wants to join the dirt biking group Midnight Clique. With the death of his brother weighing on him and pressure from his peers, Mouse resorts to a life of crime in order to get his bike and achieve his dreams. Charm City Kings is based on a true story and is an adaptation of the documentary 12 O’Clock Boys by Lotfy Nathan. Check out the trailer below.

2. A Teacher

This upcoming Kate Mara and Nick Robinson miniseries explores the very illegal relationship between a student and his teacher, and the destructive consequences that follow. A Teacher is an FX original limited series that’ll stream on Hulu starting November 10. You’ll get to watch the first three episodes on premiere day, followed by a new episode every Tuesday. Watch the trailer below.

3. Rebecca

Netflix dropped the trailer for its modern-day adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s 1938 gothic novel this week. Titled Rebecca, the upcoming movie casts Armie Hammer, Lily James, and Kristin Scott Thomas in the lead roles. After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Hammer), a woman (Lily James) arrives at his sweeping family estate as his newlywed bride. Young and naive, she struggles to make herself at home as the sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Thomas) is determined to keep the memory of Maxim’s first wife alive. See the trailer below.

4. Ratched: Final trailer

We got the final streaming trailer for Ratched this week before it hits Netflix on September 18. The upcoming horror-drama from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan looks absolutely chilling in this new trailer, showing us a glimpse of the childhood of Nurse Ratched. We swear you’ll get the American Horror Story feels here, and if Murphy-Brennan collaborations from the past (read: Glee, Scream Queens) are anything to go by, Ratched will be one helluva series to watch.

5. Clouds

Disney’s Clouds is a movie based on the life of American singer-songwriter Zach Sobiech, whose single “Clouds” charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and garnered more than 3 million views on YouTube before he died from cancer. Sobiech was given a year to live by his doctors when he was only 17. The movie chronicles his last days and how he made the most of them by becoming a viral singing sensation and forming a band with his friends. Clouds hits Disney Plus on October 16. Check out the trailer below.

6. Monsterland

Hulu has released the first trailer for its upcoming eight-part anthology series, Monsterland. The TV show promises “encounters with mermaids, fallen angels, and other strange beasts,” all of which can be seen in the trailer. The series features some well-known talent, including Kaitlyn Dever, Jonathan Tucker, Charlie Tahan, Hamish Linklater, Taylor Schilling, and many more. Check out the spooky trailer below.

7. Hubie Halloween

Comedy meets horror in this Adam Sandler Halloween movie releasing on Netflix this October. The trailer sees Sandler as Hubie Dubois, a guy who loves Halloween and thanklessly tries to ensure everyone in his town celebrates it safely. But his strange mannerisms make him the butt of all jokes. No one takes him seriously until one Halloween townsfolk start disappearing mysteriously, and he’s the only one they can turn to for help. Check out the trailer below.
