Amy Adam is in trouble in this teaser for HBO's Sharp Objects

Right before the "Westworld" premiere, the very first trailer for the highly-anticipated TV adaptation of Gillian Flynn's "Sharp Objects" was unveiled.

In a New York Times interview, Adams described the character as "dark", and recounted her experience of having to do a tricky single of crawling on a bathroom floor "while weeping and drinking fake vomit she then had to spit up".

Adams will play the title role of journalist Camille Preaker, who returns to her hometown Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate two murders. One thing that does seem certain though is that the series is really aiming high in the horror stakes. "Mom says she saw a ghost once", a girl says in a voice-over. I also wouldn't be surprised if Adams ends up with an Emmy for her work unless that awards body wants to follow suit of the Oscars and just not give her all the awards she so richly deserves.

Qualcomm to lay off a reported 1500 workers in $1B cost-cutting push
The company revealed the size of the layoffs when it filed Worker Adjustment and Re-Training Act notices, as required by law. If Qualcomm is reportedly cutting jobs of 1,000 workers, it would affect about 3% of the global workforce of the company.

The trailer hasn't given much away but it basically shows a a mentally distraught Camille, a pair of seriously creepy twin girls and some other people who also have that shifty look. "One of them is unsafe, and the other one is in danger". The cast also includes Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven. Here is the official synopsis, "Based on the book by Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl, a reporter (Amy Adams) returns home to cover a grisly murder".

HBO dropped the first trailer over the weekend and the series itself is confirmed to air in July but a premiere date has not been set. Jean-Marc Vallée (Big Little Lies) directed the series with Marti Noxon (Mad Men) serving as showrunner. This series is definitely going to fill the Big Little Lies hole in your heart this summer.
