HBO releases first trailer for Sharp Objects

HBO’s Sharp Objects is shaping up to be one of the crime drama events of the year.

Starring Oscar-winner Amy Adams, it’s based on Gillian Flynn’s (excellent) novel of the same name.

News and plot reveals have been drip-fed over the past month or so, but with an 8th July (US) transmission date, with a UK date hot on its heels, we now have a proper trailer.

Here it is:

Sharp Objects tells the tale of journalist Camille Preaker, who, fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims – a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story, and survive this homecoming.
