The first full trailer for Reese Witherspoon’s limited series ‘Big Little Lies’ has arrived, and it will make your jaw drop. The tight-knit community of Monterrey completely unravels from all the lies and betrayal. All the drama builds up to one epic climax — a MURDER! Click to WATCH the trailer now!
The first trailer opens up with a two women, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Celeste (Nicole Kidman), welcoming a new mom to the Monterrey community. “This is Monterey. We pound people with nice,” Madeline tells Jane (Shailene Woodley) in the trailer. “To death,” Celeste adds.
The trailer cuts to some very salty parents, who go on and on about how Madeline causes all the drama in Monterrey. Well, she’s not exactly calm, cool, and collected. She even asks her husband if she’s psychotic, and he doesn’t exactly tell her she’s not. One mom calls Madeline a “ticking time bomb.” Madeline has no problem with brutal honesty either. When Renata (Laura Dern) thinks Jane is a nanny, Madeline snaps, “Renata, Jane is not a nanny. She’s a mom. She’s young. Like you used to be.” Ouch.
The parents of Monterrey get together for a trivia night, and it doesn’t end well. For anyone. If you’ve read the book, written by Liane Moriarty, you know what happens at trivia night. We’re not going to spoil it here. But there’s blood and a lot of it. The trailer ends with someone saying, “So, we’re seriously using the word murder?”
Big Little Lies also stars Alexander Skarsgard, James Tupper, Zoe Kravitz, and Adam Scott. The series will premiere Feb. 19 on HBO.
