As far as TV series finales go, Breaking Bad‘s was pretty great. Vince Gilligan gave satisfying sendoffs to our favorite characters, tying up all the loose ends in a big, beautiful bow. Well — most of the loose ends. The last we saw of Huell, he was waiting in the safe house for Hank and Gomez.

For the past two years, fans have wondered: Is Huell waiting there still? Thankfully, Gilligan finally has an answer for us. Hit the jump to learn about Breaking Bad Huell’s fate.  Read More »

Watch CBS’s new 2015-2016 TV series trailers

So far, the network with the most promising new shows coming in the fall seems to be ABC. Their upfronts presentation showed off the best comedies, including the return of The Muppets to television, and they have a couple intriguing dramas on the way as well. Now the network usually geared towards is chiming in with their forthcoming shows as CBS has unleashed the trailers for new programming that will premiere in the fall.

Cameron Crowe Aloha Troubles

This morning, I retweeted a tweet from Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times noting that the all-media screening of Cameron Crowe’s Aloha is set for May 26th, reviews are embargoed until May 28th in the afternoon pacific time, with the movie being released nationwide less than a day later on May 29th. At first glance, it doesn’t seem like a good sign for a movie from a filmmaker who is known to create audience pleasing dramedies. But is it fair to judge a movie based on a studio’s apparent lack of faith in a movie?

I explore the reported trouble behind Aloha and try to explore this question, after the jump.

Netflix Between

A quarantine is now in effect: Netflix has released the trailer for their next original series Between from 24 producer Jon Cassar, starring Jennette McCurdy (iCarly). The series has an interesting premise: it takes place in “a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under.” If this were a feature film I would be worried that its just another young adult novel adaptation but the trailer looks more interesting than many of those movies. Watch the Netflix Between trailer emebedded after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Simultaneously, they’re going to get very curious about Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, the film’s director who takes difficult subject matter and turns it into something incredible. Gomez-Rejon is already capitalizing on that buzz and has picked his next project. It’s called Collateral Beauty and will star Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara, who’ll soon be seen together in Pan.

The Tribe trailer

I saw The Tribe last September, and still think about the movie pretty much every day. No other film has impressed me quite like this one did with its unique creation of drama via sound and image. Few other performances have been as devastating and courageous as those from leads Grigoriy Fesenko and Yana Novikova.

Taking place at a boarding school for the deaf, the film features no spoken dialogue; the characters communicate in sign language and outbursts of violence. There are no subtitles for the sign language, but those communications come through just as clearly as the intent behind the violence. This debut feature from Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy is as confident as they come, and shocking in its unblinking frankness.

Check out the excellent The Tribe trailer below. Read More »
