In the 'House of Hammer' trailer, allegations against Armie Hammer are described as "the tip of the iceberg."

The trailer for Discovery+'s docuseries "House of Hammer" has arrived, promising "sinister secrets" and "disturbing details" about embattled actor Armie Hammer — as well as some other men in his famous family.

In the new trailer, series consultant Casey Hammer, the actor's aunt and granddaughter of oil tycoon Armand Hammer, says, "Magnify 'Succession' a million times and it was my family."

Interviews with Armie Hammer's alleged victims are among the details revealed, as are disturbing text and direct messages in which the "Call Me By Your Name" star allegedly asserts that he is "100% a cannibal" and wants to own the women or decide when and if they get to eat.

The trailer begins with a focus on two of Hammer's accusers, Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison, who share their alleged experiences with the actor.

"I have a fantasy about having someone prove their love and devotion and tying them up in a public place at night and making their body free use," one alleged Hammer message says, as shown onscreen and read aloud by Morrison.

"My bet was going to involve me showing up at your house and completely tying you up and incapacitating you and being able to do whatever I wanted to every single hole in your body until I was done with you," another alleged voice memo recording played in the trailer says.

The trailer then moves on to graphic missives allegedly written by Hammer and some of the allegations that led to his public downfall in 2021, when he was accused of raping a woman named Effie in 2017. Following that, more women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, as did an LAPD investigation, but the "On the Basis of Sex" star denied them all and dismissed them as "bull—."

According to Variety, Discovery+, which will premiere the three-episode series on Sept. 2, said the allegations against Hammer are only "the tip of the iceberg" because the show delves into the misdeeds of five generations of men in the wealthy dynasty, including Julius Hammer's manslaughter conviction in 1920 and Julian Hammer's self-defense killing of a man in the 1950s.

Casey Hammer also claims that her father, Julian Hammer, sexually abused her as a child, which she details in her self-published book "Surviving My Birthright," which was released in 2015.

The "House of Hammer" story will be brought to life in the documentary "via a trove of archive and interviews from survivors and family members," with the goal of highlighting "all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild," according to Discovery+.

The series will premiere in 2020, at the height of Armie Hammer's celebrity, and "each episode will shine a light on a depraved pattern of abuse that extends far beyond the accusations brought against the disgraced actor," according to the streamer.

Anthony Brettler, Hammer's attorney, did not immediately respond to The Times' request for comment on Wednesday.
