Netflix released a slew of trailers this week, although The King seems to have captivated the internet the most. Based off of Shakespeare's plays, the movie follows Timothee Chalamet's King Henry V as he ascends to the throne.

Netflix's latest romantic comedy comes from director Nzingha Stewart.

Jodi is played by newcomer Ava Michelle, with a cast rounded out by The Office's Angela Kinsey, Steve Zahn, and Private Practice alum Griffin Gluck. Tall Girl will become available to stream September 13th.
Netflix's The Laundromat trailer also made a splash this week, with a zany tone and killer cast. From the mind of Steven Soderbergh, the biographical dramedy follows Meryl Streep's Ellen Martin as she attempts to expose a Panama City law firm and its shady dealings. Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas are those quirky lawyers, responsible for the shady dealings of millionaires. The cast also includes Sharon Stone, David Schwimmer, and Jeffrey Wright.
