The second day of Geeked Week brought more thrills and chills with exclusive clips of The School for Good & Evil and The Gray Man.
Best friends find themselves on opposite sides when they are both taken to an enchanted school where young heroes and villains are trained to protect the balance between good and evil. The School for Good & Evil includes Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Sophia Anne Caruso, Sofia Wylie, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Patti LuPone and Rachel Bloom. Paul Feig directs.
It’s spy vs. spy in a new clip from The Gray Man, which premieres in select theaters on July 15 and streams on Netflix on July 22. Ryan Gosling is a former CIA operative who becomes the target of Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), who will stop at nothing to take down his adversary. The Gray Man is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame) and written by Joe Russo, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Day 2 of Geeked Week included a panel with The Russo Brothers discussing how they balanced action and humor in The Gray Man. “Joe and I like to play with tone and very odd mixtures. And the reason we do that is because the audience doesn’t know where you’ll go next,” Anthony Russo explained.
Netflix also released a new clip from Spiderhead, premiering on June 17. Chris Hemsworth stars as a brilliant but manipulative visionary who runs a state-of-the-art penitentiary and experiments on his subjects with mind-altering drugs. The cast includes Miles Teller (Top Gun: Maverick) and Jurnee Smollett (Birds of Prey).
