Here’s the first legit footage from Vinyl, which is the new HBO show from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter. And while we really liked the brief mood-setting teaser released earlier this week, this is something else altogether. Imagine the energy and approach Scorsese took to The Wolf of Wall Street, applied to a story set in the office of a struggling late ’70s record label and the stages and back rooms of the ’70s music scene.
Bobby Cannavale plays the president of the label American Century Records, and the first Vinyl trailer uses him as a way to introduce the first footage. Read More »

The show is set in the world of ’70s rock, specifically oriented around a fictional record label called American Century Records.
Bobby Cannavale plays the president of the struggling label, and there’s a huge cast to play friends, hangers-on, and various band members and budding stars. Not that you’ll see any of them in this first Vinyl teaser, which is all about boiling the scene down to iconic images, like instruments, lips, money, and drugs. Read More »

Jonathan Nolan arrived at Comic Con for his Person of Interest panel, but he brought a surprise: a trailer for his HBO series Westworld. The show takes its name and inspiration from a 1973 film by Michael Crichton, in which the robot “attractions” at a futuristic amusement park begin to run wild. The new show keeps the same basic conceit, but takes a more modern turn. HBO described it early on as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”
While we don’t have that Westworld trailer to share just yet, we do have a handful of new Westworld images such as the one above, showing star Anthony Hopkins. More of the cast awaits below. Read More »
