I wasn’t immediately taken by The Leftovers when I watched the pilot on HBO, but over the course of the first few episodes the show really grabbed me. Created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, the show has a very cool mystery set-up (set two years after 2% of the world’s population mysteriously disappeared) but focuses more on the characters and drama (and even though I think the character focus works here better than in Lost, I’m still drawn more to the mysterious twists). The Leftovers season 2 teaser trailer has been released by HBO and can be watched now after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

The second season of True Detective arrives in just a couple weeks, on June 21, and the tension is rising as we await the debut of a new set of characters, played by Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. The two primary promos so far — a teaser and a trailer — have left us with more questions than answers. And, frankly, we don’t really want the answers until the come from the show itself.
But if you’d like to have just a little something to tide you over, there’s more info via a new True Detective season 2 synopsis, and a premiere logline and some episode titles. Oh, and in case you’ve missed them, there are a couple short new video promos, too. Read More »
Last weekend’s episode of Game of Thrones, packed with Wildlings, White Walkers, and wights, was among the show’s most jaw-droppingly impressive, and that’s saying a lot for a show that has already floored viewers with events like The Battle of Blackwater and the Red Wedding.
The last half of the episode was an effects-heavy affair shot on a giant, sturdy set with hundreds of extras. Now a behind the scenes video breaks down the creation of the Hardhome effects, and fans who loved the episode will want to watch this more than once. Read More »

Jon Snow isn’t exactly known for his lively sense of humor, but actor Kit Harington clearly doesn’t mind getting in touch with his silly side from time to time. Even as Game of Thrones races toward another (we assume) grim finale, HBO has released the first funny promo for Harington’s other HBO project, 7 Days in Hell.
The Christopher Guest-style mockumentary centers on a fictional tennis match that goes down in history as the longest ever. Harington and Andy Samberg play the exhausted rivals. Watch the 7 Days in Hell teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
And now for someone else’s take on Entourage. I’ve been pretty vocal about my fandom of the show turned movie, which opens June 3, and you can read about that at these links. But I’m just one person. What about the legions of people who don’t like Entourage for its seat-of-your-pants lifestyle and language? Well, for today at least, they’re being represented by the best people to take 8 seasons of a show and boil down to a scathing 6 minutes, the team at Honest Trailers.
They’ve made an Entourage Honest Trailer centered on the show and it’s incredibly funny. It lambasts the show for everything people want it to be called out for, and does it with the same zest for life the show has. Unlike the movie, even if you aren’t a fan of Entourage, you’ll love this Honest Trailer. Read More »

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 »
