‘What/If’ Trailer: Renee Zellweger Shoots an Arrow at Jane Levy’s Head – and That’s the Least Insane Part (Video)

In the new trailer for Netflix’s neo-noir social thriller, “What/If,” Renée Zellweger shoots an arrow at Jane Levy’s head — and misses, thankfully — but that’s maybe the least insane thing that happens in the two-minute, 27-second preview for the upcoming show that “explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things.”

Per Netflix, the first season of “What/If” focuses on a mysterious woman’s (Zellweger) lucrative, but dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco newlyweds.

Watch the trailer above to see just how dubious that all gets as multiple people are playing with fire here in Zellweger’s character’s very dangerous game.

‘Mr. Robot’ Creator Sam Esmail Says Series Will End In Season-Long “Christmas Special’ – Tribeca Talks
Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail unwrapped only one big reveal about the coming final season of his series, which is known for tense action and psychological twists and turns.

“Is anybody here a fan of British television?” he asked a packed Tribeca Talks crowd at the Tribeca Film Festival. He then offered a gift he hopes will keep on giving. “Typically how [British shows] wrap up series, like the British [version of The] Office, you tend to do a Christmas special. So the final season of Mr. Robot is one very long Christmas special that will last about a week over Christmas of 2015,” Esmail said.

The panel, Tribeca Talks: A Farewell to Mr. Robot, saw series stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Carly Chaikin joining Esmail in reminiscing about the series, joined by moderator Scott Feinberg.

As to the question of exactly where the series will head, the cagey Esmail would only point to the show’s history,

Netflix has released a teaser for its upcoming anthology series “What/If” — and from the looks of it, everyone is just a pawn in Renée Zellweger’s chess game.

“What if I made you an offer too extraordinary to refuse?” Zellweger says in the teaser. “For anything, and anyone, to be yours for the taking. The players are all arranged. What would you risk for a chance to have it all?”

She’s later shown dangling a pawn and then dropping it, revealing a board of toppled-over chess pieces.

Premiering May 24, “What/If” stars Zellweger as Anne, described as a mysterious woman who makes a lucrative but dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco newlyweds. The 10-episode neo-noir social thriller explores what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things, with each season looking at a different tale of morality, per Netflix.
