Amy Adams goes poking around in her hometown for HBO’s Sharp Objects trailer

Based on Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn’s debut novel, starring Amy Adams, directed by Big Little Lies‘ Jean-Marc Vallée, and headed to HBO, Sharp Objects should be an obvious must-watch for anyone (come on, at least for an episode, right?). But if you need some more convincing, have a look at this first teaser trailer for the miniseries, which sees Adams as a reporter who, fresh out of a brief stint in a psych ward, is forced to return to her childhood home—and her neurotic mother—to cover a pair of murders in her hometown. Because is Gillian Flynn ever not a rollicking fun time?

You will be expected to be caught up weekly on Sharp Objects when it premieres in July.
