‘Babylon’ TV Trailer: Danny Boyle Makes a Cop Show

Babylon

Before Danny Boyle jumps into Jobs, he’s taking a detour into television with Babylon. The British dramedy centers around the London police department, which is suffering from some serous public image issues. So Chief Constable Richard Miller (James Nesbitt) brings in some outside help in the form of Liz Garvey (Brit Marling), an American PR expert. She quickly discovers she has her work cut out for her, between a disgruntled, distrustful police force and a scandal-hungry media.

Babylon was written by Peep Show creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, and also stars Jill Halfpenny, Paterson Joseph, Bertie Carvel, and Adam Deacon. Watch the first Babylon trailer after the jump.

Zero Motivation

Each year, there are a handful of films that don’t quite seem to get the attention they deserve. Maybe they don’t star the right people or premiere at the right festivals, or maybe they suffer from plain bad luck. Whatever the case, the Tribeca Film Festival entry Zero Motivation is up there for me as one of the best films of 2014 that few people have heard of, much less seen.

The first feature from Talya Lavie, Zero Motivation centers around female Israeli soldiers stationed at a remote base. But it’s more Office Space than Black Hawk Down. When these young women aren’t filing papers or making coffee under their supervisor’s watchful eye, they’re playing Minesweeper and plotting elaborate pranks. Watch the Zero Motivation trailer after the jump.
