Ozark Holiday Teaser Trailer

Netflix‘s Ozark: Season 1: Holiday Teaser TV Show Trailer stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney. The teaser seems to hint at an ominous series of events that are to come.

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.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
