Ozark Teaser Trailer – Jason Bateman Hides His Family In The Woods

With the premiere set for July 21st, you might hope to have a little more to go on than a teaser trailer, but at least we get a look at something for Netflix’ Ozark.

The teaser doesn’t offer much, but we at least get a look at the mood and perhaps get a sense of how dark this thing may go.

Jason Bateman stars as Marty Byrde, a financial advisor who launders money for a drug cartel from Mexico. Things go wrong, as they are wont to do when serving as the more or less expendable money man for criminals, and Marty has to hide his wife (Laura Linney) and kids. He decides upon the Missouri Ozarks and, we have to imagine, hilarity does not exactly ensue.

It’s already a show that has all it needs going for it. A clever concept, and two of the better actors working today. Bateman easily has the potential to make this one of the most talked about shows of the summer.

What we, unfortunately, don’t get from the teaser is a sense if the broader theory. There will certainly be more released as the premiere date approaches, but it would solidify expectations if we got more detail about Marty’s theory, and who the other key players in these events are. Will we just watch as the show spins into life off the grid, or does Marty have plans to set in motion that will get him out of his predicament?

Take a look above, and leave us a comment or visit the forum to let us know what you think of this one.

The show also stars Esai Morales, Julia Garner, Marc Menchaca, Jason Butler Harner and Harris Yulin.

The Astronaut Wives Club has too much going on to rocket out of the gates, but it has the potential to easily rate a 9 or 10 after six episodes. The complexities are legion, and there are more characters than you know what to do with. If it settles down into the spin on pseudo-drama it suggests, it could be a winner.
