Paramount+ Drops First Steamy and Suspenseful Trailer for Fatal Attraction RebootPhoto Courtesy of Paramount+ TV News Fatal Attraction
In 1987, Fatal Attraction, starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, was a box office juggernaut. Making over $300 million on a budget of $14 million cemented it as a true hit, and a defining touchstone in pop culture. So, it makes sense that Paramount+ wants to bring it back, and the series’ newest trailer establishes the series as familiar and, well, fatal.
In a press release, this new Fatal Attraction is described as “a deep dive reimagining of the 1980s cultural touchstone Fatal Attraction through the lens of privilege, personality disorders, family dynamics and murder. In the present day, after serving 15 years in prison for the murder of Alexandra Forrest (Lizzy Caplan), Daniel Gallagher (Joshua Jackson) is paroled with the goals of reconnecting with his family and proving his innocence. In 2008, Dan first meets Alex and his world begins to unravel after their brief affair threatens to destroy the life he’s built with his wife, Beth (Amanda Peet).”
Toby Huss as Mike Gerard, Brian Goodman as Arthur Tomlinson, Alyssa Jirrels as Ellen Gallagher, and Reno Wilson as Detective Earl Brooker round out the rest of the central cast, with Alexandra Cunningham (Dirty John, Chance) acting as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
Filled with intrigue, romance, and tension, the trailer showcases the central mystery surrounding Alex’s death and the events that led up to it, all backed by flashes of heartbreaking performances and stand-out cinematography. In the final moments of the trailer, Dan promises: “I did not kill that woman, and I’m going to prove it.”
Check out the trailer below; Fatal Attraction premieres Sunday, April 30th on Paramount+.
