When Oscar Isaac was cast in The Wire creator David Simon‘s limited series Show Me a Hero, plenty of people knew he was a great talent, and there was plenty reason to be interested in a series that drew the two together. Now, however, we’ve all seen Isaac in Ex Machina, not to mention the trailers and photos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So it’s a great time for new info on the HBO series, however brief it may be. The Show Me a Hero premiere has been announced for August, and we’ve got a bit more info below. Read More »

The first True Detective season two trailer was all slow shots of sad faces. This second one has a lot more character — we hear from a few of the major players, including the bad guy played by Vince Vaughn, and the cops played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. The real standout so far looks to be McAdams, who comes off like a total badass in this footage. Check out the new True Detective trailer below. Read More »
There aren’t many actors who could be trusted to carry an entire feature film by themselves, but David Oyelowo is one of the special few. Following his exceptional (and sadly overlooked by awards) performance in Selma, Oyelowo leads the one-man show Nightingale for HBO.
At the center of the story is Peter Snowden, a war veteran spiraling out of control. In the aftermath of a terrible event, he desperately tries to reconnect with an old friend. Watch the Nightingale trailer after the jump. Read More »
There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.
See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season. Read More »
David Fincher got his start working at ILM many years ago, but really made his first marks as a music video director beginning in the early/mid ’80s. Now he’s helping chronicle the heady and anything-goes days of music video production in Los Angeles circa 1983 in a new HBO show.
The comedy series, now called Video Synchronicity (formerly Living on Video), features opening episodes co-written and directed by Fincher, and has been ordered to series by HBO. Along with that news comesa cast announcement that gives us more understanding of the ensemble cast that will surround lead Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society, seen above). Read More »

The solo show must be both one of the most appealing and among the most frightening prospects for an actor. David Oyelowo gets a chance to totally own the screen in HBO’s Nightingale, in which the actor plays a war veteran whose psyche is falling apart. That’s all I need to know, as Oyelowo is a powerful actor, and I would be happy to see his take on just about any role. Put him in a project like this, where it’s all on his shoulders, and the results might be spectacular.
The first Nightingale trailer only gives us a hint of where the film will go, but it’s enough to get across the sense that it’s going to be an emotional journey. Check it out below. Read More »

True Detective season two will premiere on June 21 on HBO, and now you can see the first footage from the new season. This tease doesn’t offer much, but the very first shot of a California highway interchange seems to link right to early reports about the season. Then there are shots of the primary cast, including Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, with some atmosphere that is similar to that of the first season — this looks just as heavy — but with a feel that is distinctly different. Check out the first True Detective S2 teaser below. Read More »
