Eurovision Song Contest and Wasp Network Trailers Debut

-

Netflix has brought online the official trailers for feature films Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (available June 26) and Wasp Network (available June 19).

In Eurovision Song Contest, when aspiring musicians Lars (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit (Rachel McAdams) are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition, they finally have a chance to prove that any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.

Directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers, The Judge), the movie also stars Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens, and Demi Lovato. Brosnan plays Erick Erickssong, Lars’ father and the most handsome man in Iceland, Dan Stevens is Alexander Lemtov, a Russian contestant in the Eurovision song contest, and Lovato portrays Katiana, one of the best and most angelic singers in all of Iceland.

Ferrell wrote the script with Andrew Steele. The producers are Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Chris Henchy from Gary Sanchez Productions. Adam McKay is executive producing.

The streaming service previously released “Volcano Man,” a song performed by Lars Erickssong (Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (McAdams).

Also coming to Netflix is Wasp Network, starring Penélope Cruz, Edgar Ramírez, Gaël Garcia Bernal, Ana de Armas, Leonardo Sbaraglia, and Wagner Moura. Written and directed by Olivier Assayas, the film was produced by Rodrigo Teixeira, Charles Gillibert, and Lourenço Sant’Anna.

René González (Edgar Ramírez) is a Cuban pilot who leaves his wife (Penelope Cruz) and young daughter behind in the communist island nation to defect to the United States and begin a new life of freedom in the early 1990s. But René is not the upstart American striver he appears to be.

Joining forces with a group of Cuban exiles in South Florida known as the Wasp Network — led by undercover operative Manuel Viramontez a.k.a. Gerardo Hernandez (Gaël García Bernal) — he becomes part of a pro-Castro spy ring tasked with observing and infiltrating Cuban-American terror groups intent upon attacking the socialist republic.

Based on the true story of The Cuban Five — intelligence officers including González who were arrested in Florida in September 1998 and later convicted of espionage and other illegal activities — Wasp Network is a gripping and stylish political thriller that wears many faces, bringing together a rogue’s gallery of Cuban nationals and Cuban-American exiles engaged in a complex and deeply nuanced battle of competing ideologies and shifting loyalties.

Inspired by Fernando Morais’ book The Last Soldiers of the Cold War, writer-director Olivier Assayas (Carlos, Personal Shopper) gathers an ensemble cast including Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramírez, Gaël Garcia Bernal, Ana De Armas, Leonardo Sbaraglia, and Wagner Moura for an explosive and urgent spy game fought in a hall of mirrors across neighboring states whose decades-long standoff casts shadows into the present day.
