A new trailer has been released for Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film, ‘White Noise’

Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach making a film together sounds like a pretty dreamy combination to us, so luckily the new trailer for comedy White Noise has dropped. The film is slated to premiere on Netflix in December, much like Baumbach’s Marriage Story, and will had its theatrical debut at New York Film Festival.

What is in the new trailer for White Noise?

Now that the trailer has released, we have more of an idea of the plot of the film than earlier. White Noise is about a family whose life is upending when a train carrying nuclear waste crashes, releasing toxic fumes into the air and becoming a threat to local residents and life. An adaptation of the 1985 novel by Don DeLillo, the movie is likely set in the same period as the book, judging from Gerwig's blonde perm and Driver's wind swept comb over.

Our central protagonist is Jack (Driver), a professor of Hitler Studies, followed by wife Babette (Gerwig) and his four children from both his current marriage and Jack’s five – yes, FIVE – previous marriages. Once the waste descends upon the town, a black cloud forms across the region and residents must evacuate. Here, we see themes of death, panic and selflessness explored by Baumbach. You can watch the trailer for White Noise below. 

Alongside Driver and Gerwig, Don Cheadle, Jodie Turner-Smith and Raffey Cassidy also feature in the film. Off-screen, Baumbach not only directs but produces and wrote the screenplay for the film, with David Heyman and Uri Singer also producing with the director once again. 

When does White Noise release in Australia?

Your White Noise-less days are numbered my friends. A new month means Netflix has dropped its upcoming releases and Baumbach's adaptation is set for a December 30 release. Think of it as a belated Christmas gift.
