The Pentaverate Releasing Date
The rest of the trailer features a slew of unlikely events that are reminiscent of the best moments from Mike Myers’ filmography. His absence from the industry can only be hoped to have re-energized him in order to produce something more in the vein of Austin Powers and less in the vein of The Cat in the Hat. When The Pentaverate premieres on Netflix on May 5, we’ll all be able to find out together.
Mike Myers’s one-of-a-kind comedic abilities have been missing from the world for a long time now. His most recent starring role outside of the Shrek universe was in The Love Guru, which was, to put it mildly, a critically panned film. Despite the risks associated with The Pentaverate, Netflix is willing to take a chance on the comedy series, which will see Myers make up for lost time by bringing eight new characters to life at once.
Check out the new trailer below:
The Pentaverate TrailerThe new trailer for the show almost completely depicts all of those roles, including the four current members of the titular group of five, who are also featured in the trailer. Myers is one of a group of powerful men who run things behind the scenes, evoking the Illuminati in a way that’s so obvious that the trailer makes jokes about how they’re similar to the organization in question. Along with these roles, Myers also appears as a floundering Canadian journalist and one of the reporter’s assistants, both of whom are attempting to expose the secret society and obtain one final big scoop.
Mike Myers is unable to portray every character on the show (at least not this time around), so he enlists the assistance of a stellar cast that includes Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders, and Lydia West, among many other notables. Rob Lowe also makes an appearance early on in the film to introduce some of Meyer’s characters in the way that only he can, though his appearance appears to be more of a cameo than anything else.
