The First Disturbing Leaving Neverland Trailer Takes on Michael Jackson’s Abuse

The first trailer has been released for Leaving Neverland, the new two-part documentary series features home video footage filmed at Michael Jackson‘s Neverland Ranch, interspersed with commentary from Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who have both alleged they were abused by the singer as children.

Leaving Neverland debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

It was swiftly denounced by the Jackson Estate, who also called the documentary “one-sided” and “sensationalist” in a letter to HBO CEO Richard Plepler.

Director Dan Reed responded to the Estate’s complaints, saying the documentary is not about Jackson but is rather “an account of sexual abuse, how sexual abuse happens, and then how the consequences play out later in life.”

Leaving Neverland airs March 3 and 4 on HBO.

Long Shot

Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.

Madonna and the Breakfast Club

The incredible untold story of pop icon Madonna’s struggling pre-fame years in New York City with her musician boyfriend, Dan Gilroy, and their first band Breakfast Club.

The Hustle

A remake of the 1988 comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, in which two down-and-out con artists engage in a “loser leaves town” contest.

Frozen 2

The trailer is strangely tense, showing that Frozen II may not be a movie that’s quite for the faint of heart. It opens with Elsa alone on a black sand beach trying to fight the waves. She’s meeting with limited success. Why she’s fighting the current is not explained here, but the music and the look on her face make it clear that this is serious business.

Teen Spirit

Violet (Elle Fanning) is a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.
