Judd Apatow’s COVID comedy about making blockbuster movies gets Netflix meta preview

At the start of COVID, it was revealed that Judd Apatow was writing a new film that was to tell the story of a group of actors having to make a film while in a pandemic “bubble” where they are cut off from most of the outside world. Since then, not much is known other than the cast, and if you just watch the new teaser of netflixyou won’t learn much else about “The bubble.”

As seen in the teaser, you won’t even know that the movie they’re promoting is actually called “The Bubble.” Instead of a typical trailer, Netflix decided to make a teaser for the movie-within-a-movie, “Cliff Beasts 6: The Battle for Everest.” This film feels like a mix of “Jurassic World” and “Jumanji”, as it follows a group of adventurers who must climb a mountain and fight monsters. It’s suitably cheesy, but it doesn’t do much to let us know what to expect from the actual movie, “The Bubble.”

“The Bubble” is set to follow the behind-the-scenes shenanigans that come with filming a blockbuster movie during COVID. The film features an all-star cast that includes Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Fred Armisen, Maria Bakalova, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Leslie Mann, Pedro Pascal, Peter Serafinowicz, and Rob Delaney.

Fittingly, “The Bubble” is set to hit Netflix on April Fool’s Day, aka April Fool’s Day. You can watch the teaser below:
