Trailer: Amy Adams investigates murders in Sharp Objects series

Sharp Objects Amy Adams

Just over a month after a teaser was released for the upcoming HBO limited series Sharp Objects, which is based on the debut novel of GONE GIRL and DARK PLACES author Gillian Flynn, a full trailer has arrived online and can now be seen below.

Amy Adams stars in the series as 

reporter Camille Preaker — fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital — who faces a troubling assignment: She must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille hardly has 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.

Marti Noxon scripted the adaptation, with Jean-Marc Vallee directing.

In the cast with Adams are Patricia Clarkson, Eliza Scanlen, Henry Czerny, Elizabeth Perkins, Matt Craven, and Sophia Lillis.

I haven't read Flynn's novel (which you can purchase at THIS LINK), but judging by the trailer this adaptation will feature all the darkness and mental anguish I've come to expect from a Flynn story after GONE GIRL. Sharp Objects is high on my "to watch" list, and if you have HBO you can watch the series starting in July.
