parimalSeptember 24, 2021

Netflix has dropped the trailer for Attack of the Hollywood Clichés!, a one-off special featuring some of the most famous movies in cinematic history along with a plethora of Hollywood A-Listers, Screenwriters, Academics, and Critics as they “guide us through the funny, weird and controversial clichés which appear on our cinema screens.” You can check out the brand new trailer below.

“Thousands of movies are released every year. That’s a lot of stories,” host Rob Lowe says in the trailer. “Stock characters, familiar story beats, and convenient plot devices have crept in over time. Tonight, we celebrate the clichés that have made cinema what it is today.”

Posed in a classic crisp suit, Lowe invites viewers to examine the Hollywood clichés filmmakers can’t help but use, time and time again. With the help of the experts, Attack of the Hollywood Clichés analyses the origins and evolutions of everything from ‘The Ticking Time Bomb’, to the ‘Meet-Cute’, and ‘Females Running in Stilettos’ – there’s also a ‘Wilhelm Scream’ montage for real movie buffs.

Attack of the Hollywood Clichés! is produced by Broke and Bones, with executive producers Rob Lowe, Jon Petrie, Charlie Brooker, and Annabel Jones. It is produced and directed by Sean Doherty, with Alice Mathias, and Ricky Kelehar also serving as directors. Ben Caudell serves as the head writer alongside Dane Baptiste, Sean Doherty, Erika Ehler, Jason Hazeley, Daniel Maier, Michael Odewale, Charlie Skelton.
