As awards season is gearing up, Variety looks at emerging designers that will make their mark on the many red carpets ahead:

Bode

For the guys, Emily Bode’s eponymous line of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted clothing cut from antique fabrics and Victorian quilts has earned a following that includes Donald Glover, Dyllón Burnside, Ezra Miller, Leon Bridges, Jordan Peele and Henry Golding. “I particularly love how each piece has a sense of nostalgia and uniqueness, sure to stand out from the standard suit and tie,” says Ian Bradley, who dressed Lamar Johnson in a Bode jacket and shirt for a Toronto fest event last year after learning about the Atlanta-born designer through friends. “Once I saw one of her signature quilted/patchwork jackets, I was fully invested.” Bradley also works with Indya Moore and Sky Ferreira. The 3-year-old New York-based label has had a big year; Bode won Emerging Designer of

First Trailer for Psychological Thriller 'Rattlesnake' with Carmen Ejogo

"What was done to your daughter, doesn't come cheap..." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for a psychological horror-thriller called Rattlesnake, a very plain title for this film since it's about a rattlesnake (bite). Talented actress Carmen Ejogo, who we last saw in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, stars in this Netflix film. When a single mother accepts the help of a mysterious woman after her daughter is bitten by a rattlesnake, she finds herself forced to make an unthinkable deal to repay her debt. Described as a "pulse-pounding, psychological horror" also starring Theo Rossi and Emma Greenwell. This seems to be borrowing from (and then twisting) the Monkey's Paw concept, except it's only one thing that the mother must do in exchange for her daughter's life being spared. Might be good? Especially with Ejogo in the lead. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Zak Hilditch's Rattlesnake,

Netflix's Rattlesnake Trailer Conjures an Unthinkable Deal with the Devil

  • MovieWeb
Netflix has dropped the trailer for Rattlesnake. The horror thriller is the latest from 1922 director Zak Hilditch. The story focuses on a single mother accepting the help of a mysterious woman after her daughter is bitten by a rattlesnake. When the bite is magically fixed, she finds herself making an unthinkable deal to repay her debt.

The trailer offers some twists and turns in this tale, which looks very much in the style of Hilditch's last effort with the streaming platform. Though notably without the killer Mike Patton score.

Rattlesnake tells the tale of Katrina (Carmen Ejogo), who is a single mother driving cross country to start a new life with her young daughter Clara (Apollonia Pratt) when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. As Katrina changes the tire, Clara wanders off the desert road and is bitten by a venomous rattlesnake. Desperate to save her daughter's life,

Rattlesnake Trailer: Carmen Ejogo Stars in Netflix Horror Thriller

Joseph Baxter Oct 10, 2019

Carmen Ejogo headlines Netflix horror movie Rattlesnake, playing a mother who makes a dubious deal to save her snake-bit daughter.

Rattlesnake is one entry amongst a sizable slate of fall season horror offerings over at Netflix.

A psychological horror tale brandishing a tinge of supernatural themes, Rattlesnake – a title that’s simultaneously literal and metaphorical – is mainly a performance showcase for star Carmen Ejogo, who plays a single mother who unwittingly makes a Faustian bargain of sorts with a mysterious woman who wields the power to save her daughter, who was bit by a rattlesnake in a remote, cell-signal-deprived desert location. However, as expected, said bargain comes with a colossal cost, one for which a diverse array of seemingly-demonic individuals are coming to collect.

Zak Hilditch wrote and directed Rattlesnake, directly following up his 2017 Netflix Stephen King adaptation horror film, 1922.

The Rook Stars Talk Myfanwy's Puzzling Name, the Bechdel Test and That Hive-Mind Makeout Session

If you’ve watched an episode of Starz’s supernatural drama The Rook, you already know that Emma Greenwell‘s character’s name — Myfanwy — rhymes with “Tiffany.” But you might not know exactly why, and Greenwell was happy to explain when she stopped by TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019 interview suite.

We won’t go into the specifics here (click on the video above to get a full understanding of why the character foregoes the traditional pronunciation) but we will prepare you: Greenwell’s explanation kicked off a bit of silliness among co-stars Olivia Munn and Joely Richardson. Accents were bandied about.

Starz’s New Superpowered Spy Thriller ‘The Rook’ Heading To Comic-Con

  • Deadline
Exclusive: The Rook is bringing its intrigue to Comic-Con.

The superpowered fueled spy thriller that debuted June 30 on Starz is set for a panel July 19 in Room 6A of the San Diego Convention Center, I’ve learned. As you would hope for an inaugural appearance at the confab, The Rook’s stars Olivia Munn, Joely Richardson and Emma Greenwell will all be in attendance.

No word on who will be moderating the spyfest, but I do know it will take place starting at 6 Pm for those planning their Sdcc schedule.

Based on the often dark-humored 2012 novel by Daniel O’Malley, the series executive produced by Kari Skogland and Stephenie Meyer with showrunners Karyn Usher and Lisa Zwerling traces the steps and global-protecting lower-grade spycraft of Greenwell’s Myfanwy Thomas as she tries to reconstruct her memories after waking up in a very unusual situation underneath London’s Millennium Bridge.

The Rook: Season One Ratings

This summer, The Rook TV show makes its debut on Starz. Will the first season provide the kind of programming viewers want? Will The Rook be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
