Quibi Trailer Roundup: ‘Survive’, ‘Most Dangerous Game’, ‘#FreeRayshawn’

Quibi, the streaming service for millennials, has released a new batch of trailers for their upcoming bite-sized projects. Let’s take a look at trailers for Survive, Most Dangerous Game, and #FreeRayshawn.


Survive

I don’t know how bite-sized episodes of 10 minutes or less is going to pan out in terms of editing, but this was a damn fine trailer. Sophie Turner and Corey Hawkins are both up-and-coming actors with a lot of potential, so I’m glad to see them as co-leads here.

Plot Synopsis:

Jane (Sophie Turner) wants to end it all. Then a plane crash almost ends it for her. Now she’s crawling from the wreckage with the only other survivor (Corey Hawkins) and a new drive to stay alive. Together they embark on a harrowing journey out of the wilderness, battling brutal conditions in this thrilling drama based on the critically acclaimed novel, Survive, by Alex Morel.

Most Dangerous Game

That’s two for two now on Quibi shows I’d probably watch. What is going on? But I’m always down for a one man against an army. Liam Hemsworth looks like he’s having fun. At least more fun than in Arkansas. And I’ll watch anything with Christoph Waltz in it.

Plot Synopsis:

Desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, Dodge Tynes (Liam Hemsworth) accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he’s the prey. This dystopian action-thriller explores the limits of how far someone would go to fight for their life and their family. Let the games begin.

#FreeRayshawn

And that makes three. Huh, Quibi you might just have a future subscriber.

Plot Synopsis:

#FREERAYSHAWN tells the story of a young, black Iraq War veteran named Rayshawn (Stephan James) who is set up by New Orleans police on a drug deal, runs for his life, and takes refuge inside his apartment building with his girlfriend and child. With New Orleans PD and the SWAT team outside ready to storm his home, a social media frenzy begins as community members and news outlets arrive at the scene. During this growing mayhem, a sympathetic cop named Steven Poincy (Laurence Fishburne) plays the role of negotiator, and, over the course of one brutally stressful day, Steven tries to get Rayshawn to calmly surrender in order to avoid an escalation of unnecessary violence.
