New Trailers: Sweet Girl, Reservation Dogs, Flee, What We Do in the Shadows, and more

This brand-new half-hour funny series from Taika Waititi and Sterlin Harjo has to do with a gang of Indigenous teenagers in Oklahoma whose criminal activities (they take a chip delivery van in the trailer), belong to their larger plan to raise cash to get to California. Booking Dogs has strong Indigenous representation at every level of production and if the trailer is any indicator, its a wickedly amusing show that pokes holes in stereotypes of Indigenous individuals. DPharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis, and Lane Factor star in Reservation Dogs, which concerns FX on Hulu August 9th.

Sweet Girl

This weeks trailers consist of a number of comedies, and a Jason Momoa Netflix movie shot in Pittsburgh whose title puzzles me somewhat.

Appointment Dogs

Jason Momoa stars as Ray Cooper, whose cancer-stricken other half dies after shes not able to get a drug she requires. Rays out for revenge/justice, and his child Rachel (played by Isabel Merced, most likely the sweet woman of the title), is along for the quest. Sweet Girls trailer makes outstanding usage of Pittsburghs Golden Triangle area, many bridges, and even our light rail line as dramatic backgrounds for punching, stabbing, and throwing bad guys through windows.

Season among Loki is a wrap and while I know not everyone liked the ending, the show is my favorite of the Marvel/Disney streaming series so far. Thats due primarily to Tom Hiddlestons remarkable performance as the title character, once a bad guy whos evolved into … somebody else, not quite sure who. Lots of stories to choose up in Loki season 2 (yay).

And a reminder its Ted Lasso week; season two shows up on Apple TV Plus July 23rd. In the media buzz leading up to the new season, there has actually been some proof that Ted and creator Jason Sudeikis are kinda the same individual: At the shows world premiere, Sudeikis wore a t-shirt with the names of three England footballers who were subjected to racist vitriol on social media, to reveal his support. And Uproxx home entertainment author Mike Ryan shared a story about Sudeikis from a couple of years ago that provides even more credence to the Ted/Sudeikis theory. Love it.

What We Do in the Shadows

We got a short teaser for season 3 of Titans last month, but we get a lot more in this first official trailer, including a take a look at Red Hood, Vincent Kartheisers Scarecrow, and Gotham, the setting for this season. Titans comes to HBO Max for its 3rd season August 12th.

Season three of this extremely funny program about silly vampires is finally practically here, and we have this teaser that shows Nandor walking … in the sunshine!? Hes not going to rupture into flames, do not worry; hes simply using a VR headset. This is a good binge show and everyone has been telling you how amusing it is, so try to find time to capture up before season 3 hits FX on September 2nd (and Hulu a day later).

And a tip its Ted Lasso week; season two arrives on Apple TELEVISION Plus July 23rd. In the media buzz leading up to the new season, there has actually been some proof that Ted and creator Jason Sudeikis are kinda the exact same person: At the shows world best, Sudeikis wore a shirt with the names of 3 England footballers who were subjected to racist vitriol on social media, to show his assistance. Appointment Dogs has strong Indigenous representation at every level of production and if the trailer is any indication, its a wickedly funny program that pokes holes in stereotypes of Indigenous individuals.

Leave

TItans

It informs the story of a male, Amin Nawabi, who was a kid refugee from Afghanistan, and ran away to Moscow with his family. The trailer is just fascinating, utilizing pieces of an audio interview with Nawabi as the voiceover.

Season one of Loki is a wrap and while I know not everyone liked the finale, the show is my favorite of the Marvel/Disney streaming series so far. Plenty of storylines to pick up in Loki season two (yay).
