White Noise Trailer brings Don DeLilo’s iconic novel starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig to life

Don DeLilo’s groundbreaking 1985 novel is brought to life on the big screen for the first time in the upcoming adaptation, White Noise.

DeLilo’s book won the National Book Award for Fiction and was on Time’s list of greatest novels from 1923 to 2005, but it had never been adapted until now.

Writer-director Noah Baumbach brings this iconic story to life, starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig as parents in this new film, which debuts November 25 in select theaters before debuting December 30 on Netflix.

The trailer begins with some cryptic imagery, including a train coming out of a tunnel as Jack Gladney (Adam Driver) and his wife Babbette (Greta Gerwig) are awakened in a panic.

“Okay, roll film,” says a voice as we meet the Gladney family while Babbette is checking out packs of CareFree gum when she’s interrupted by Denise (Raffey Cassidy).

“That stuff causes cancer in laboratory animals, in case you didn’t know,” says Denise, though Babbette says, “I either chew gum or I smoke.”

Murray Siskind (Don Cheadle) talks to Jack at the grocery store and asks if all of these kids are his.

“This is mine from wives one and three, this is Babette’s from husband 2, Wilder is ours, we’re each other’s fourth,” explains Jack.

Later, Babbette says, “Life is good, Jack, I hope it lasts forever,” as we watch the event that sets the real drama in motion.

A railroad crossing arm crashes… but inexplicably, a tanker truck crashed halfway into the train, causing a massive derailment and eventually a large explosion.

The Gladley family watches footage of the explosion, but Jack asks them to watch “a sitcom or something,” but all the kids say “no” at the same time.

Jack’s son Heinrich (Sam Nivola) says, “They call it the Airborne Toxic Event” while looking through binoculars at the cloud of toxic smoke swirling nearby.

Jack insists over dinner that the cloud “won’t come here,” but Babbette wonders, “What if it’s dangerous?”

Police cars are patrolling in front of her home, telling everyone to “evacuate where you live,” while we see hordes of families rushing to make it.

The Gladneys are on their way and Jack says, “We’ll just have to get out of the way,” but his little son says, “They’re overtaking us, Dad.”

“Technically, it’s illegal,” says Jack, when the car that passed them is involved in an accident and the family chants.

One of the kids asks if “sheep have lashes,” but Jack is more concerned that their station wagon is submerged in water and being carried by the river current.

Jack says to Murray, “I wish there was something I could do. I wish I could reconsider the issue.

Murray tells Jack, “There are two kinds of people in the world: killers and dying. Most of us are diers.’

The trailer ends with a series of dramatic shots, while the trailer ends with the Gladney station wagon blowing up.

Other leading roles are played by Andre Benjamin, Jodie Turner-Smith and Lars Eidinger.
