This appears to be the day for sexy/fabulous trailers ’round these parts. Just when we got finished gagging over Cate Blanchett’s drag mother routine in Thor:Ragnorak, the gorgeously uplifting and super-Queer Sense8 season 2 trailer dropped in our laps (almost literally), with accompanying missive from Mr. Press Release.
First, the trailer, then the missive, then a bunch of gorgeous pictures.
“Sensates by their nature are a threat to secrecy. They must band together and fight for their survival. See how their epic journey unfolds in the new trailer for Sense8 season 2.
From renowned creative geniuses Lana Wachowski, Grant Hill (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas) and J. Michael Straczynski (Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, World War Z), Sense8 is centered around eight characters, from different parts of the world, who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by the experience. They become connected, able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, with access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must the eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out why their lives are now in jeopardy. In Season 2, dark forces continue to track the cluster of eight connected characters. The sensates will learn more about BPO, the secret organization searching for their cluster and others like them, and will work to protect themselves from this organization that is out to hunt and kill them.
The second season of Sense8 launches globally on Netflix on Friday, May 5.”
With the way the world is looking outside our front door right now, we’re super-primed for a sexy adventure story full of gorgeous queer people and their allies saving the world with their super-powers. Escapism? Pfft. #SquadGoals, darlings.
