Watch: First trailer for Noah Baumbach’s White Noise
James R | On 25, Aug 2022
Noah Baumbach is returning to Netflix this autumn and a new trailer gives us a first look at – and listen of – White Noise.
At once hilarious and horrifying, lyrical and absurd, ordinary and apocalyptic, White Noise dramatises a contemporary American family’s attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world.
Based on the book by Don DeLillo, the film stars Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Don Cheadle, Raffey Cassidy, Sam Nivola, May Nivola, Lars Eidinger, Andre Benjamin and Jodie Turner-Smith.
It will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on 31st August, before going on to debut worldwide later this autumn. Watch this space for a confirmed release date. Until then, here’s the trailer:

Jodie Turner-Smith is in talks to star in White Noise, Noah Baumbach’s new film for Netflix.
The movie, which was announced earlier this year, is the first as part of an exclusive multi-year deal inked by the Marriage Story helmer with the streaming giant. It marks the third film by Baumbach that has found a home at Netflix, including The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).
The film is based on Don DeLillo’s seminal novel of the same name. First published in 2011, White Noise follows Jack Gladney, the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. It charts his absurd life, which is disrupted by a chemical spill from a rail car that releases an airborne toxic event, forcing Jack to face his own mortality. It is a satire of rampant consumerism, media saturation and novelty intellectualism.
Turner-Smith, who starred in Queen & Slim, has reportedly joined the cast. She is no stranger to streaming, having starred in the Amazon Studios-acquired Without Remorse, opposite Michael B Jordan. She was most recently seen in Channel 5 drama Anne Boleyn. She will star opposite Baumbach veterans Driver and Gerwig, with Deadline also reporting that Raffey Cassidy, Sam Nivola and May Nivola are on board.
Baumbach will produce the film alongside David Heyman, with whom he also produced Marriage Story.
