Netflix unveiled a new trailer for “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” the Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron, on Tuesday and announced a release of May 3 for when the film will be available on the streamer and in select theaters.
After begging thirsty people on Twitter to stop calling Ted Bundy “hot,” Netflix has further scaled back some of the snappy, light-hearted tone of the original trailer, which was released ahead of its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
“This is all going to end,” Efron’s Bundy says solemnly in the trailer. “It’s all going to end with the truth,” Lily Collins replies to him during prison visit.
John Malkovich and Jim Parsons also have a more prominent role in the second trailer, with Malkovich playing the judge who put Bundy away.
“Extremely Wicked” is a chronicle of the crimes of Bundy from the perspective of Liz, his longtime girlfriend, who refused to believe the truth about him for years. It’s based on the book “The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy” by Elizabeth Kendall.
Kaya Scodelario, Jeffrey Donovan, Angela Sarafyan, Dylan Baker, Brian Geraghty, Terry Kinney, Haley Joel Osment, James Hetfield Grace and Victoria Cox also star. Joe Berlinger directed “Extremely Wicked” from a screenplay by Michael Werwie.
Michael Costigan, Nicolas Chartier, Ara Keshishian, Michael Simkin and Berlinger produced the film. Efron, Michael Werwie, Jonathan Deckter and Jason Barrett are executive producers.
