HBO's Sharp Objects — Official Trailer


added: Tue, Jun 5th '18

HBO has released the official trailer for "Sharp Objects," a new limited series that's based on the 2006 mystery novel by best-selling "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn, and stars five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams in her first television role in over a decade.

In the eight-episode mystery thriller, Adams plays an emotionally-scarred crime journalist who confronts her traumatic past when she returns to her small southern hometown to report on the grisly murders of two preteen girls.

Patricia Clarkson co-stars as Adams' passive-aggressive perfectionist mother, while "IT" actress Sophia Lillis is playing the young version of Adams' character in flashback scenes.

Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Jean-Marc Vallee (of "Dallas Buyers Club" and "Big Little Lies") directs the entire eight-episode run of the limited drama, which was developed into a series by "UnREAL" and "Dietland" creator Marti Noxon and is executive produced by "Get Out" producer Jason Blum working alongside Noxon, Adams and Flynn.

Co-starring Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Matt Craven, and Elizabeth Perkins, "Sharp Objects" is slated to premiere Sunday, July 8th on HBO.

Based on the book of the same name by The New York Times bestselling author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Dark Places), this eight-episode series tells the story of reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) who returns to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
