DFTG Recaps The Week’s Biggest TV/Movie Trailers: February 27th (VIDEO)
While there wasn’t any special event or big game to bring out the blockbuster trailers we’ve had in recent weeks, the week of February 27th had some pretty nice, yet bizarre inclusions from the TV side of things. Netflix is streaming a potentially murderous reality special, the Superman prequel is actually starting to look good, and pandas have been confirmed as the most adorable creatures alive. DFTG recaps the biggest TV and movie trailers of the week in the list below:
Derren Brown: The Push
What would compel an innocent person to commit murder? Mentalist and purveyor of “WTF” Derren Brown is looking to answer that question in the upcoming Netflix special Derren Brown: The Push. The trailer presents viewers with an ordinary man as Brown and a cast of actors attempt to lure him to the dark side through simple suggestion and peer pressure. If The Push looks familiar, the bizarre special had already made waves in 2016 when it originally aired for UK audiences. Netflix is likely looking to recapture similar buzz when the special begins streaming on February 27th.
Krypton – Season 1
On paper, Krypton seems like a curious premise to make a series about, especially since it’s a Superman prequel about the hero’s grandfather. However, the more behind-the-scenes details that’ve been revealed, the more it seems like the series could actually be worthwhile. The show features a fantastic visual adaptation of the DC alien world, and the introduction of rarely-utilized characters such as Adam Strange and Hawkgirl are definitely enticing. The most recent trailer is also a sight to behold as it notably features a pretty on-point representation of supervillain Brainiac. Krypton premieres on Syfy on March 21st.
Legion – Season 2
Season one of Legion provided one of the trippiest and most visually interesting shows of 2017, resulting in arguably the most unique X-Men adaptation in existence. In a newly revealed teaser, the insanity of last season’s cliffhanger finale is not expressly referenced, but we do get an unsettling monologue from actress Aubrey Plaza, continuing her sadistic role of confusing the show’s narrative. Maybe we’ll finally have an idea what’s actually going on when Season 2 of Legion premieres on FX April 3rd.
Lost in Space – Season 1
The classic 1960s series Lost in Space may be a delightful cheese-fest to watch nowadays, but one has to wonder how interesting the show’s “Swiss Family Robinson in space” premise could be handled with a modern approach. Netflix looks to be providing that with an upcoming reboot, and the first trailer provides an initial look at the Robinson Family as they board their spaceship, Jupiter 2. Shh, nobody tell them the title of the show! Season one of Lost in Space is set to begin streaming on Netflix on April 13th.
The amount of cuteness overload that’s in store for the upcoming Pandas documentary is unbearable. The film, captured with super-detailed IMAX cameras, follows newly born panda cubs in captivity that, with the help of scientists, prepare for their eventual introduction into the wild. Narrated by actress Kristen Bell and looking all-around beautiful, the whole experience seems like a pretty interesting adventure of positivity. Also, there are baby pandas tumbling down a little slide. Pandas hits IMAX theaters on April 6th.
