westworld-trailer

From the man who gave us Jurassic Park, ER, Congo and Disclosure comes a fascinating new HBO series. Based on a 1973 film of the same name by Michael Crichton, Westworld is being described “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It takes place in a futuristic theme park called Westworld. J.J. Abrams is one of the co-producers.

Anthony Hopkins plays Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant creative director of the theme park. James Marsden is a newly arrived gunslinger in pursuit of a local beauty played by Evan Rachel Wood. She recently discovers her entire life is an elaborately constructed lie. Thandie Newton, Rodrigo Santoro, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward round out the cast.

Check out the first teaser below. Saddle up for a trippy futuristic ride.

the-leftovers-season-2

Without a doubt, the best part of the first season of The Leftovers was Justin Theroux jogging. That flopping thing between his legs had a mind of its own. No wonder Jennifer Aniston is always smiling ;) Fingers crossed, producers continue to let the 43-year-old actor go commando.

The Leftovers returns for its sophomore run on October 4. With last year covering the events of the source book in its entirety, the second season is completely original material. The action shifts from Mapleton, New York to a suburb in Texas, named Miracle. Turns out the Texan suburb experienced absolutely zero Sudden Departures. That is until the Garvey family arrives.

Joining Theroux for another round are Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley and Chris Zylka. New additions include Regina King, Kvin Carroll Janel Moloney and Family Matters‘ Darius McCrary. Check out the first trailer below.

The Leftovers Season 2

More than three years ago, 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanished. 140 million people, gone in an instant. No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero. This is the setting for a tale of two families: the Garveys, who have moved to this special place, and whose lives were forever changed by the Departure, and the Murphys, a local family, who seem to have been spared from an event that shook the rest of the world.

true-detective-season-2-poster

HBO just dropped another 60-second clip promoting the second season of True Detective. Like the first, this teaser trailer doesn’t shed too much light on the plotline, but hints at a darker tone for its sophomore run.

Each of the main cast members- Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch- are prominently featured and provide short voiceovers while new intense and violent footage is shared. True Detective 2 premieres on June 21. Check out the new promo below.

True Detective Season 2 Synopsis

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.

The highly-anticipated second season of True Detective is just a little over two months away. HBO just dropped the first teaser trailer of the critically-acclaimed drama.

Like American Horror Story, each season of the HBO series is independent from the previous one. Taking over for Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson is an equally impressive cast. Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, and Colin Farrell headline this year’s story.

The 60-second clip doesn’t give away too much in terms of plot, but shows some very intense moments. Get your first look below.

looking-canceled

It wasn’t the most engaging and exciting show, but I looked forward to my weekly fill of Jonathan Groff and his Castro crew. Sadly, HBO decided not to renew the gay dramedy for a third season. Given its very anemic ratings, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise. However, I was still hoping the underdog series could pull the horseshoe out of its proverbial ass.

There is a silver lining to this sad news though. The network announced a Looking movie to wrap up the storylines. Thank God!. I want to Dom (Murray Bartlett) to have his happy ending and for Patrick (Groff) to finally choose between Kevin (Russell Tovey) and Richie (Raul Castillo). Team Richie over here!!! As far as Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez), I couldn’t care less. His character is beyond unlikeable.

Check out HBO’s statement below, along with showrunner Michael Lannan’s tweet regarding the follow-up movie.

If you haven’t noticed yet, the promotional train for Game of Thrones is in overdrive. With a month to go until the Season 5 premiere, HBO is making sure everyone knows the fantasy drama is back on April 12.

Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Maisie Williams each grace their own separate cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. The magazine traveled with the cast and crew to three countries and spent ten days on set to give a preview of what’s to come this upcoming season. Don’t worry, it’s all spoiler free.

“Worlds are colliding,” showrunner David Benioff, said to EW.com. “One of the things we’ve been most excited about from the beginning of the series is we’ve had all these far-flung story lines across Westeros and Essos which almost never cross. Now some of these characters start to head on a collision course for each other.”

In addition to issuing four collectible covers, the publication devoted an unprecedented 30 pages exploring the past, present and future of the HBO series. This issue is a must-have for any hardcore fan. Check out the other covers snapped by photographer Marc Hom below.
