New trailers: Locked Down, Supernova, Losing Alice and more


So with all the chaos of the past week, you might have missed this Friday was the last episode of Jeopardy! with Alex Trebek as host. Trebek, who died in November at the age of 80 after a battle with cancer, hosted the answer and question game show for 37 years. The show has released a best-of of Trebek’s performances over the years (remember the hubbub when he shaved his mustache ?!) and that can get you a bit ripped. My favorite appreciation of Trebek was of James Poniewozik in the New York Times, who concludes: “He was our trusted man with the answers, even in times when reality came to us in the form of a question.”

This week’s new trailers range from dark and creepy to quirky to creepy (which, to be completely honest, I prefer all of the above to the syrupy holiday flicks). Let’s go.

Losing Alice

A director worried about her age meets a mysterious screenwriter on a train, and the two are drawn into a strange relationship. I love a good film noir. Losing Alice was written and directed by Sigal Avin. Ayelet Zurer and Lihi Kornowski are the stars of the eight-episode streaming series which will be released on Apple TV Plus on January 22.


Look, I just love Anne Hathaway, so I’m willing to at least give everything she’s got a chance. Couple in quarantine during pandemic just after deciding to break up, eh, okay. But rebound, they’re also planning a jewelry theft from the Harrod department store to steal a billion dollar diamond. Now I am on board. Chiwetel Ejiofor (another favorite) also stars in Locked, which hits HBO Max on January 14.

Derek DelGaudio is in himself

What is it about? Put simply, this is a one-man show by Derek DelGuadio, who describes himself as a “conceptual storyteller and magician.” The IndieWire review says it’s a mixture of “deception on stage and alluring autobiographical sides”, it’s also a “meditation on existential desire”. Hey, I’m all for anything. Directed by Frank Oz and produced by Steven Colbert (yep and yep!), In and of itself hits Hulu on January 22.


Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth are the 20-year-old partners who travel across England to visit family and friends. It’s not just a nice road trip movie, however; Tucci’s character Tusker has dementia and slowly loses his memory, so the couple are keenly aware of the value of their time together. Supernova is slated to hit theaters on January 29, with a “digital release” on February 16.
