‘The Flight Attendant’ Trailer Mixes Mystery With Thrills & Humor (VIDEO)
“I feel like I’m losing my mind,” flight attendant Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) says in the trailer for the HBO Max thriller, and you might feel the same — in the best way possible.
The Flight Attendant‘s new preview, hauntingly set to Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” is full of mystery with a little dark humor thrown in for good measure. It all begins with Cassie eyeing a passenger in seat 3C, Alex (Michiel Huisman), and their fun moves from the plane bathroom to Bangkok for dinner and his hotel room. Then, the next morning, she wakes and finds blood on her hand — and he’s dead in the bed.
“When I woke up in the morning, he was so alive!” Cassie hysterically tells the FBI. “Think they know you’re lying?” Alex whispers in her ear. Yes, the dead Alex is sticking around to haunt and taunt her.
“The whole night just flickers,” Cassie later admits. “I can’t remember anything about it.” Her best friend Annie (Girls‘ Zosia Mamet) asks why she cleaned it up. “I don’t know,” the flight attendant admits. And just as Cassie is advised to not do “anything stupid,” she attends 3C’s funeral with another friend.
“I’m a crazy, drunk flight attendant, not a killer,” she insists. Is she? What exactly happened that night? Watch the trailer below for more from the series.
