New “The Matrix Resurrections” & “Dune” Footage Revealed During Emmys
If you want to tease the fact that your premium streaming service has two of the biggest movies of the year coming soon, doing so during the Emmys Telecast is the way to go. Such was the case last night when HBO Max revealed a new trailer teasing their upcoming shows and films.
The new trailer highlights returning series like Insecure, Succession, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. It teases new series like The Sex Lives of College Girls, the new chapter of Sex and the City called And Just Like That…, Gossip Girl, and The Suicide Squad spinoff series Peacemaker.
On the film side, HBO Max has some really big titles coming. The Will Smith-led King Richard, where Smith plays Richard Williams, the father of Serena and Venus Williams, is certainly an intriguing film, and arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on November 19. Then there are the two massive blockbusters that will be appearing this year—Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, which arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on October 22, and Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix Resurrections, which comes two months later on December 22. These are two films that we think really ought to be seen on the biggest screen possible, probably multiple times.
While the trailer is only a minute and change long, the footage is gripping. It seems like only yesterday when Netflix was the only big streaming service in town—those days are obviously over (as last night’s Emmys reminded us—although Netflix topped all networks and streamers with 44 Emmys). Now, there’s an mind-melting amount of new series and big films to choose from on HBO Max, Disney+, Paramount+, Apple TV, Amazon Prime. This trailer is a vivid reminder of that.
