This week is pretty awesome trailer-wise for pop culture fans. In big screen news, Marvel dropped an epic look at its upcoming Doctor Strange drama. Featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, this teaser does its job well. We can’t wait for November. In fact, time needs to speed up drastically in order for us to see this movie sooner rather than later.

In small screen news, AMC does its part to feed the appetites for all the entertainment junkies out there. The cable network has released a brand new trailer for its highly anticipated mini-series, The Night Manager. Tom Hiddleston a hero? Hugh Laurie a villain? Sign us up for this drama based on John Le Carré’s best-selling novel.

On a shallow note, there’s a shirtless Hiddelston shot that we much appreciate. This project really looks like it could tell us whether the actor who’s known for playing a magnetic villain like Loki has what it takes to become a viable James Bond, n’est-ce pas?

Fans of Marvel and DC may recognize a couple of faces. Actress Elizabeth Debicki co-stars in a major role. She’s going to be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Meanwhile, actor David Harewood is also featured in the trailer below. The former Homeland star now plays J’onn J’onzz aka Martian Manhunter on CBS’ Supergirl.

Official AMC Synopsis for The Night Manager mini-series

A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré’s espionage drama – and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years – The Night Manager will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. The series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) who is recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of international businessman Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie) and detonate the unholy alliance he has ministered between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To get to the heart of Roper’s vast empire, Pine must withstand the suspicious interrogations of his venal chief of staff Major Corkoran (Tom Hollander) and the allure of Roper’s beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself.

Synopsis for Night 1 of The Night Manager
