Some Mistakes Cannot be Erased: Extracurricular premieres on April 29, only on Netflix

9:47:00 PM



Netflix debuted the main trailer of Extracurricular, that provides a stunning glimpse into the show in which four high school students risk their lives for dangerous choices.

Watch the trailer here

The trailer shows in vivid detail how the students make choices that send them down the wrong path and are ultimately forced to pay the price for crimes they committed without an ounce of guilt.



Jisoo (Kim Dong-hee) is a quiet model student who carries a secret inside that no one is aware of. He dreams of living a simple life, but to attain this dream, he leads a shocking double life and becomes involved in organized crime.


Gyuri (Park Ju-hyun) is the ‘it-girl’ at school with everything, money and brains included. But while it seems she has the perfect life, she feels suffocated by the overbearing expectations of her successful parents at home. To escape from her parents’ pressure, Gyuri becomes an accomplice to Jisoo and assists him with his operations without any consideration of whether he consents or not. At this point, the story takes a turn for the worse as Jisoo and Gyuri’s business activities spiral out of control, and they are led down a road they cannot go back.



To make matters worse, the school’s number one bad girl Minhee (Jung Da-bin) and her boyfriend Kitae (Nam Yoon Su), the undefeated school bully, become entangled in Jisoo and Gyuri’s mess, and all of their lives are thrown headlong into a whirlpool from which none of them can escape.

The big reveal of Denis Villenueve’s “Dune” adaptation has arrived.  Take your first look below at the brand new images of the cast led by Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin and Oscar Isaac.

In debuting the images, director Denis Villenueve says, “`Dune’ was made by people from all over the world. Many of these people are like family to me – and they’re very much in my thoughts. I’m so proud to showcase their hard work. I look forward to a time when we can all get together again as `Dune’ was made to be seen on the big screen.  Be safe.”








About “Dune”

Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name,” “Little Women”), Rebecca Ferguson (“Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”), Oscar Isaac (the “Star Wars” franchise) Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (“Avengers: Infinity War”), Stellan Skarsgård (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Dave Bautista (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, “Avengers: Endgame”), Stephen McKinley Henderson (“Lady Bird”), Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), David Dastmalchian (“The Dark Knight”), Chang Chen (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (“Assassin’s Creed”), with Jason Momoa (“Aquaman,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”). 

Villeneuve directed “Dune” from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert.  Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr.  The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.

Behind the scenes, Villeneuve reteamed with two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Patrice Vermette (“Arrival,” “Sicario”), two-time Oscar-nominated editor Joe Walker (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Arrival”), two-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Lambert (“First Man,” “Blade Runner 2049”), and Oscar-winning special effects supervisor Gerd Nefzer (“Blade Runner 2049”).  He also collaborated for the first time with Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”); three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Jacqueline West (“The Revenant”) and co-costume designer Bob Morgan; and stunt coordinator Tom Struthers (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Inception”).  Oscar-winning and multiple Oscar-nominated composer Hans Zimmer (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Inception,” “Gladiator,” “The Lion King”) is creating the score. 

“Dune” was filmed on location in Hungary and Jordan.  The film is slated for a December 18, 2020, worldwide release from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary.
