Ozark Holiday Teaser Trailer
Ozark Season 1’s plot synopsis from Netflix:
A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss.
The series will feature, via IMDB, Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Jason Butler Harner, Anthony Collins, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Christopher James Baker, Carson Holmes, Marc Menchaca, McKinnley Belcher III, Lisa Emery, Kevin L. Johnson, and Michael Tourek.
As a teaser, the trailer doesn’t reveal much about the film’s plot, but the little we can gather appears pretty intense. Sweet images of children playing with loving parents are juxtaposed with shots of blood being scrubbed off floors and bodies being carried away. Although the first half of the trailer seems to take place in a rural area, probably a resort of some kind, the second half introduces an urban city environment where Jason Bateman’s character stands before a corpse in the street. The significance of this, of course, is unrevealed.
If there’s one thing I didn’t like about the trailer, it’s the canned use of “America the Beautiful” to make some vaguely ironic statement about the seemingly perfect family we are seeing and the vague unpleasantness that is apparently to come. It feels very tired and uninspired, particularly after The Purge used the same song to similar effect.
