HBO’s Sharp Objects Trailer Starring Amy Adams


When HBO announced back in December that they would be bringing back Big Little Lies for a second season, they also announced that Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild) would not be returning to direct. I assume that is because he was busy with this other upcoming HBO mini-series: Sharp Objects. Based on the book by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, this is also a murder mystery of sorts although it seems to have a very different tone and is described as more of a Southern Gothic thriller. Amy Adams plays a mentally unstable journalist who returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri to report on a rash of killings. Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina and Elizabeth Perkins also co-star. Sharp Objects premieres on HBO in July; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
