Every epic summer blockbuster needs a heart-pounding preview. HBO has dropped a new trailer starring the superheroes in silver and blue as the network’s Hard Knocks: The Dallas Cowboys series gets set to kick off next Tuesday.
This clip has it all, from quick edits and slow-motion action set to a stirring orchestral score to cryptic shots without context meant to pose questions that will only be answered by tuning in. (Who, for instance, is the Cowboys player identified by his DYMO helmet label as “Donkey?”)
Watch the trailer here. (And turn up the sound for the full ready-to-run-through-a-wall soundtrack.)
America’s team is back.

Not too much here in the way of revealing Easter eggs, but plenty of moments to look forward to. Dak Prescott unleashing a bomb. Dan Quinn shoving around one of his defensive charges. Micah Parsons drilling hard. DeMarcus Lawrence letting out a primal scream. A hard hit jarring the ball loose. Mike McCarthy looking off symbolically in the distance. Jaylon Smith getting hyped about… something. Even a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-glimpse of Amari Cooper catching a pass.
But Hard Knocks is also known for its lighter moments, and there will be plenty of those, too, over the show’s five-episode run. NFL Films shared an early peek of one of those, in which running back Ezekiel Elliott gets winded and more than a little frustrated trying to find his hotel room.
