Awards season is heating up, and it’s bringing many amazing movies our way, including Noah Baumbach’s White Noise. Netflix just shared the first full trailer for this black comedy starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig ahead of its limited theatrical release.

White Noise draws inspiration from Don DeLillo’s book of the same name, and Baumbach serves as both the writer and director of its big-screen adaptation. He previously collaborated with Netflix on The Meyerowitz Stories and Marriage Story, which brought six Oscar nominations to the streaming giant.

Netflix’s official logline describes White Noise as “horrifying, lyrical and absurd, ordinary and apocalyptic”, adding it “dramatizes a contemporary American family’s attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life.”

Netflix previously dropped a teaser trailer for White Noise, but they decided to give us a closer look at the film ahead of its limited theatrical release on November 25. The full trailer does a better job fleshing out the characters, including the leading duo played by Driver and Gerwig, as they go through an airborne toxic event with their four children.

The supporting cast of White Noise includes Raffey Cassidy, André Benjamin, Alessandro Nivola, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Don Cheadle. The film will start streaming on Netflix a few weeks after its theatrical release on December 30.
