Trailers: "Home Alone" Reboot, "The Shrink Next Door", "Colin in B&W"
Several streaming services have released official trailers for some of their upcoming projects. Namely the Home Alone reboot (Disney+), the limited series The Shrink Next Door (Apple+), and the limited documentary series Colin in Black and White (Netflix). Check them out below...
Home Sweet Home Alone
Announced quite awhile ago (to match ire from fans of the original), the reboot for Home Alone, titled Home Sweet Home Alone shows the new protagonist Max Mercer (Played by Archie Yates) being accidentally left behind by his parents when they leave for their Christmas vacation, only to end up facing off against home invaders Jeff (Played by Rob Delaney) and Pam (Ellie Kemper). The trailer seems to indicate the reboot won't stray too far from the franchise's formula (which was poorly repeated with 3 sequels after the first two that starred Macaulay Culkin). Though apparently, the reboot is set in the universe of the originals as there is a brief cameo from the original film’s Buzz McCallister (Devin Ratray), who is now a police officer. Check out the trailer below:
Home Sweet Home Alone co-stars Aisling Bea and Pete Holmes. It is directed by Dan Mazer and is scheduled to premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 12th.
The Shrink Next Door
In what essentially feels like an inverted version of What About Bob?, the upcoming Apple+ limited series The Shrink Next Door although far more twisted and is actually inspired by true events.
The story follows soft-spoken New Yorker Martin ‘Marty’ Markowitz (Played by Will Ferrell) and as his psychiatrist Dr. Isaac ‘Ike’ Herschkopf (Played by Paul Rudd) and who manipulates and exploits Marty for nearly three decades. Along the way, Marty marries Bonnie (Played by Casey Wilson) who is equally unsuspecting of Ike as her husband is and hMarty's sister Phyllis (Played by Kathryn Hahn). Phyllis seems more suspicious and may be the reason Marty makes it out alive. Check out the trailer below:
The Shrink Next Door is set to premiere on Apple+ on November 12th with the first three episodes (of eight). The remaining episodes will air weekly on the service until the finale on December 17th.
Colin in Black and White
Finally, Netflix has released the official trailer for the upcoming six-episode documentary series Colin in Black & White. It will examine the life and career of civil rights activist and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The series will consist of six-episodes and is notably produced by film director Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time). Check out the trailer below:
Colin in Black & White will land on Netflix on October 29th.
