Netflix The Bubble trailer Judd Apatow comedy movie pandemic all-star cast Cliff Beasts 6 Karon Gillen

The Bubble Is a Judd Apatow Netflix Movie About Making a Bad Movie During COVID

Over the course of the week Netflix dropped a trailer and retrospective for Cliff Beasts 6: Battle for Everest: Memories of a Requiem, a film that very obviously isn’t real. It was, in fact, the movie within a movie for the upcoming Judd Apatow film The Bubble, in which a group of actors and filmmakers are quarantined together in order to produce the sixth film in the “23rd largest Dino franchise ever.” Now we have the trailer for the actual movie The Bubble, which is coming to Netflix.

The Bubble follows a cast of actors as they struggle through production during lockdown thanks to COVID-19. As you may remember, most movie productions completely shut down during COVID, but a few, more low-budget films did indeed continue to make movies. Cliff Beasts 6 is fictionally one of them. Judging from the trailer for The Bubble, it appears that things get more out of hand than just actors going stir-crazy, as the movie studio takes some extreme measures to keep everyone on set. Also, there’s a lot of puking. This is a Judd Apatow comedy through and through. He wrote, directed, and produced the movie, though it seems a bit more gag-focused than his comedy bromance classics, which found humor in normal life and less in punchlines.

The cast for the film is massive and features a ton of Apatow regulars along with some new faces. Those include Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Fred Armisen, Maria Bakalova, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Leslie Mann, Pedro Pascal, Peter Serafinowicz, Vir Das, Rob Delaney, Galen Hopper, Samson Kayo, Guz Khan, Nick Kocher, Ross Lee, Harry Trevaldwyn, and Danielle Vitalis. That’s probably not including whatever random cameos he pulls in for quick laughs.

The Bubble releases April 1, 2022 on Netflix.
