The Effortlessly Cool New Atlanta Trailer Happened Last Night, Too

The Second Season of Donald Glover's FX Series Is Almost Here

Plenty of newsworthy events transpired at last night's Golden Globes. Oprah Winfrey unofficially launched her bid for president, with a stirring acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Natalie Portman, in a moment of unadulterated badass-ery, adlibbed a pointed critique of the industry's preference for white male directors. James Franco speech-blocked Tommy Wiseau. Timothée Chalamet was...simply present and available for viewers to look at every so often.

But for all the sharp-tongued jokes and #timesup fervor, the so-called "Drunk Oscars" suffered from a noticeable lack of cool. (This was an awards telecast, after all, that abruptly ended with Sam Rockwell thanking his agent.) 

Fortunately, one commercial break featured the trailer for season 2 of Donald Glover's groundbreaking FX show, Atlanta, and, in typical Glover fashion, it was cool as fuck. The teaser hauntingly roves around a diorama-like world of strip clubs and diners and front driveways, with a familiar cast of characters, to the tune of Sonder's "Too Fast." The second season premieres on March 1st. Check out the trailer here.
