First Looks at ‘Truth Seekers’, ‘Trial of the Chicago 7’, and ‘All Together Now’

Here is a roundup of first look images from three upcoming projects: the Amazon series Truth Seekers, and the Netflix original films The Trail of the Chicago 7 and All Together Now.

Truth Seekers

Amazon’s horror-comedy series Truth Seekers stars Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen.

Plot Synopsis:

Truth Seekers is a horror comedy series about a team of part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK, sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see. However, as they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers and abandoned hospitals with their array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more terrifying and even deadly, as they begin to uncover a conspiracy that could bring about Armageddon for the entire human race.

Set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters, Truth Seekers mixes the very funny with the very scary in an exciting take on genre storytelling.

Truther Seekers currently does not have a release date on Amazon.

The Trial of the Chicago 7

Vanity Fair has spoiled us by releasing the above images of The Trial of the Chicago 7 (more can be found at the link). The upcoming Netflix drama from Aaron Sorkin stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as prosecutor Richard Schultz; Sacha Baron Cohen and Jeremy Strong as Yippie activists Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Panther Party members Fred Hampton and Bobby Seale, Mark Rylance as defense attorney William Kunstler, and Eddie Redmayne as Tom Hayden, veteran of the Free Speech Movement. Other confirmed cast members include Michael KeatonFrank LangellaJohn Carroll Lynch, and Alex Sharp.

Plot Synopsis:

What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 will stream on Netflix later this year.

The film also stars Fred Armisen, Carol Burnett, Rhenzy Feliz, Judy Reyes, Justina Machado, Taylor Richardson, C.S. Lee, Anthony Jacques Jr., and Gerald Waters.

Plot Synopsis:

Amber Appleton (Auli’i Cravalho) remains an optimist even when her personal life is far less stable than it appears on the surface. A musically gifted high school student with aspirations to attend Carnegie Mellon, Amber balances her beloved high school drama club helmed by Mr. Franks (Fred Armisen) with working long hours at a donut shop to help support herself and her down-on-her-luck single mom (Justina Machado). She also spends time at the local retirement community, giving care and attention to her favorite pessimistic resident (Carol Burnett). When new obstacles present themselves that threaten her dreams, Amber must learn to lean on the strength of her chosen family to move forward.
