Preacher Trailer Parody

This weekend is a huge one for Seth Rogen. Not only does his comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising hit theaters starting with early shows at 7pm on Thursday night (watch the trailer right here), but his TV series adaptation of the comic book Preacher is also premiering on AMC on Sunday.

Rogen is easily one of the hardest working guys in Hollywood, but when it comes to his work at AMC for Preacher, he wasn’t satisfied with only being the executive producer and director of the show. At one point, Rogen decided he also wanted to star in the show. But he didn’t just want the lead role that ended up going to Dominic Cooper, he wanted to play every single role.

Watch the Preacher trailer parody to see how that turned out. Read More »

preacher opening scene

We’re less than a week away from the series premiere of AMC’s Preacher and I couldn’t be more intrigued to see what Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg have done with Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s twisted and hilarious comic series. By all accounts (the pilot was screened to a warm response at SXSW), the television adaptation uses the basic signposts of the acclaimed Vertigo comic while very much doing its own thing and that’s perfectly fine. I love Preacher to death, but it’s the kind of thing that needs to be massaged into shape for a television series.

AMC has released the opening scene from the first episode and it’s a doozy, somehow managing to sum up a great deal of what this series is all about in 240 seconds. There’s extreme violence, pitch-black comedy, a not-so-romantic look at Texas life, and the suggestion of a genuinely cosmic scale.

Preacher Trailer

Like the rest of AMC’s popular dramas, including The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the new comic book adaptation Preacher will be given an after show. Talking Preacher was announced on last night’s edition of Talking Dead since next week brings the series premiere of Preacher on May 22. However, this after show won’t be following every single new episode. You can get more details on the schedule after the jump.

If after shows aren’t your bag, but you’re still excited about Preacher arriving next weekend, there’s a new Preacher trailer for you to check out below as well, along with a pretty extensive batch of featurettes available online as well. Read More »

Preacher teaser

We’re less than two months away from the premiere of AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and illustrator Steve Dillons‘ Preacher. After a series of failed potential film adaptations, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) finally made this comic book adaptation a reality.

Before we finally get a chance to see Ennis’ characters brought to life, AMC has released another brief look at the series. Check out the latest Preacher teaser trailer below.

Preacher Image

We won’t get to see the supernatural comic book Preacher hit the air until May, but the word out of the pilot’s premiere at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this month is that the series is an outstanding adaptation of the source material from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, perfectly balancing the line between “delightfully visceral and absurdly cartoonish.”

Now one of the more cartoonish aspects of the show has been revealed with the first image of the character named Eugene Root (played by Ian Colletti). However, once you see the image after the jump, you’ll understand why this character is better known by the nickname “Arseface” Read More »

preacher cast

Preacher the television series will not be Preacher the comic. The trailer showed us that. Reactions from early screenings of the pilot have told us that. Even the casting of certain characters have made that clear. And that’s fine. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s infamous Vertigo comic series was never going to make the transition to the small screen intact and it probably shouldn’t. What works in the pages of comic book, what’s palatable in the pages of a comic book, doesn’t always translate to something that’s fun to actually watch.

But man, as a fan of the original series (occasionally embarrassing warts and all), it’s a genuine rush to see the trio of main characters brought to life. AMC has released new images of the three leads and they look just about perfect. We’ll see how their performances work out, but things are looking good.

supergirl renewed for season 2

The television landscape is a harsh landscape littered with broken dreams and the bodies of cancelled shows. Sure, we’re living through a TV golden age where it’s literally impossible to keep up with everything that is worth your time, but that doesn’t make the whole industry any less forgiving. There’s almost too much good stuff out there – a show that doesn’t strike a chord with audiences feels doomed.

So when you look at the news of Supergirl and Into the Badlands each receiving a second season, you can’t help but consider the context. Sophomore seasons were never a sure thing for either of these shows, but their networks obviously view them as strong long-term investments.

fear the walking dead season 2

While AMC’s The Walking Dead continues to grab headlines left and right as it casts strong actors as frightening villains and riles fans up with wacky plot twists and big developments, Fear the Walking Dead has just been kind of sitting there. The first season of the spin-off, which turns back to the clock to the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse and takes place on a separate coast entirely, received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. Every joy came coupled with a frustration, which really is the Walking Dead experience in a nutshell.

With Fear the Walking Dead returning next month, AMC has released new key art that seemingly teases the focus of the new season. Yep, it’s time explore the zombie apocalypse from a boat.
