‘The Bubble’ Trailer: Judd Apatow’s Netflix Comedy Shows Filming A Dinosaur Action Movie During Lockdown Is No Walk In The Jurassic Park

The Bubble

Sneaking out. Hooking up. Melting down. And bottled up.

Welcome to The Bubble, Judd Apatow’s stacked-cast lockdown comedy that looks at the high stakes and high jinks involved in filming a studio tentpole movie during Covid. Check out the first trailer above.

The scenario unfolds somewhere in England during the dark days of October 2020 as a group of actors is quarantining at a posh hotel while shooting Cliff Beasts 6, the latest in an action franchise about people battling dinosaurs. And it’s no walk in the Jurassic Park.

“Thank you for wearing proper PPE,” the ensemble is told. “Physical touch is, of course, off the table, so I would recommend making sweet eyes at each other.”

But there’s an incentive to keep the cameras rolling: “We are one of two movies in production right now — if we fail, the studio’s going to go down,” the studio chief  (Kate McKinnon) says via Zoom. So the show goes on, and we get the lighter side of greenscreen acting.

Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Fred Armisen, Maria Bakalova, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Leslie Mann, Pedro Pascal and Peter Serafinowicz star in the pic Apatow directed from a script he wrote with Pam Brady.

The film-within-a-film will hit Netflix on April 1.
