the door recap

We’ve reached the halfway point of Game of Thrones season six and the meticulously assembled dominos of the past five or so years have officially started tumbling down. “The Door” is an hour of major story progression, vital character development, and revelations that manage to redefine much of what we’ve seen before. If we didn’t already know that the show had an end in sight, episodes like this would clue us in to that fact. Game of Thrones is burning Westeros down this season and, as usual, no one is safe. Let’s run through the most important things that happened this week.

game of thrones season 6 posters

It seems like everyone with an ounce of artistic talent and a finger on the pulse of popular culture has paid tribute to HBO’s Game of Thrones at this point. You can’t walk two steps on the internet without stumbling over a cool poster or a nifty sketch or a fun re-imagining of the show’s characters. So it takes something special (like the brilliant Beautiful Death series) to stand out.

And these new Game of Thrones season 6 posters from artist Fernando Reza do stand out, taking a single image or concept from each episode and putting it to paper. And yes, they are available to purchase right now. Each poster should be considered a spoiler, of course.

No Tomorrow

Apocalypses and dystopias are all over TV right now. Divergent and The Maze Runner are carrying on The Hunger Games‘ dystopian YA torch on the big screen, while superhero movies promise destruction and doom on a regular basis. The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead are sending zombies shuffling through the AMC lineup, The Last Man on Earth is laughing through the end times over at Fox, and The 100 delivers post-apocalyptic teen drama from week to week on The CW.

But The CW’s next apocalyptic series comes with a bit of a twist. No Tomorrow is not a post-apocalyptic story, but a pre-apocalyptic one. Tori Anderson plays a risk-averse quality-control assessor who falls head over heels for a handsome neighbor (Joshua Sasse, late of Galavant). He takes a real “live like there’s no tomorrow” approach to life because, as it turns out, he actually thinks there’s no tomorrow — he’s fairly certain the world is going to end in a few months. Sarayu Blue, Amy Pietz, Jesse Rath and Jonathan Langdon also star.  Read More »

Don't Think Twice

Mike Birbiglia started out as a stand-up comedian before transitioning into filmmaking with 2011’s loosely autobiographical Sleepwalk With Me, based on one of his stand-up acts. It was solid and sweet and lots of fun, but it’s his second film, Don’t Think Twice, that should really mark him as an indie director to watch.

The dramedy, which premiered at SXSW this spring and is now headed for a summer release, follows the members of a scrappy New York improv troupe played by Birbiglia, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Gethard, Kate Micucci, and Tami Sagher. The close-knit circle finds itself in disarray when one of their number gets catches a huge break. It’s laugh-out-loud hilarious and painfully honest and above all, deeply empathetic, and it’ll ring all too true to anyone who’s ever found themselves feeling stuck in life. Watch the Don’t Think Twice trailer after the jump. Read More »

Frequency TV Series Trailer

You should know by now that  I love time-travel stories, so it should come as no surprise that I like the 2000 film Frequency which starred Jim Caviezel as a guy whose radio allowed him to speak with his dead father (played by Dennis Quaid), “with their communication being the portal into a thriller plot involving a serial killer.” Warner Bros Television has produced a new series based on this premise with Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver.

While the show won’t premiere on The CW until this fall, the network has released a first look trailer. Hit the jump and watch it now.

Elisabeth Moss

Since AMC’s Mad Men came to a satisfying conclusion, actress Elisabeth Moss has continued to work with very promising and very talented directors. She was most recently seen in Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, an abrasive and dense piece of filmmaking, and before that she collaborated twice with writer/director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up PhillipQueen of the Earth). Next, Moss will appear in Ruben Östlund‘s The Square. It’s the director’s follow-up to the fantastic Force Majeure, one of the best films of 2014 that was snubbed by the Academy Awards.

Warren Beatty pic

It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty return to the big screen this November when the actor, director, producer, and writer’s newest picture, now titled Rules Don’t Apply, finally opens in theaters.

Below check out the Rules Don’t Apply first look.
