Demolition trailer

How do you mourn the death of a spouse you never really loved, who represented a life that you never really wanted? If you’re like Davis, the character played by Jake Gyllenhaal in Jean-Marc Vallée‘s Demolition, you start by writing a series of long, rambly, bizarrely confessional letters to the company behind the vending machine that failed to spit out the peanut M&Ms you paid for.

And because Demolition is an indie dramedy, those letters eventually lead Davis to a sympathetic customer service rep, Karen (Naomi Watts), who, along with her rambunctious son Chris (Judah Lewis), may be just what Davis needs to destroy his life so he can rebuild it again. Demolition is making its way into theaters this spring after debuting at TIFF last year, and you can watch the new trailer after the jump.  Read More »

manhattan canceled

Television is a fickle mistress. Here is a creative medium that places every possible roadblock in your way and then still finds a way to trip you after you’ve seemingly cleared every hurdle. And yet, some shows can recover when they have the right champions, like DC’s planned Teen Titans series, which may not be as dead as previously indicated. Meanwhile, WGN has officially pulled the plug on the critically acclaimed but under-watched Manhattan, retroactively transforming its season two finale into a series finale.

creative control trailer

The best thing I can say about Creative Control is that it would make a terrific double feature with Spike Jonze’s Her. This near-future slice of quasi-science fiction is a very funny and occasionally chilling look at what happens when the amazing technology within our grasp collides with the fact that human beings are, in general, Big Dumb Selfish Idiots.

Creative Control was snatched up from the 2015 SXSW Film Festival by Amazon Studios and Magnolia and they’ve just released the first trailer. Put this one on your radar.

Me Before You

Love is in the air, what with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and that means it’s the perfect time for Warner Bros. to try and get you to swoon for Me Before You. Emilia Clarke (of Game of Thrones fame) and Sam Claflin (of Hunger Games fame) meet and fall for each other in Thea Sharrock‘s adaptation of Jojo Moyes‘ bestselling novel.

This being a romantic drama, of course there’s a tragic twist: he’s basically given up on life following a terrible accent that’s left him a quadriplegic, and she’s his caretaker. Moyes wrote the screenplay with Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter, who basically specialize in tearjerker romances these days — they’re also the duo behind The Spectacular NowThe Fault in Our Stars, and Paper Towns. The first Me Before You trailer has arrived today, and you can watch it after the jump.

After season two of The Leftovers, it feels like season one hasn’t totally gotten its due. Admittedly, the HBO drama got off to a rough start, but midway through chapter one, the adaptation of Tom Perrotta‘s book began to soar. By the time “Guest” aired, directed by Carl Franklin (One False Move), The Leftovers began delving deeper into its world and characters — and season two continued to do the same. The main mystery became less of a burning question and the drama grew richer.

Showrunner and writer Damon Lindelof remains immensely proud of season one, but there were lessons learned that him and his collaborators kept in mind during season two. Below, read our conversation with Lindelof. (Spoilers for Season 2 of The Leftovers ahead.)

house of cards casts joel kinnaman

I’m just spitballing here, but what if House of Cards season 4 is really just a big elaborate prank? After all, the latest season of Netflix‘s flagship series is only a few weeks away and we’ve yet to see a full and proper trailer. Sure, the streaming giant doesn’t have to work too hard to sell this massively popular show, but you’d think they’d want to drum up some hype and give all of the voters, er, viewers a show of confidence after that lackluster third season. A handful of vague teasers won’t cut it!

Netflix has now revealed that actor Joel Kinnaman has joined House of Cards season 4, but they don’t have a single thing to say about who he is playing, how many episodes he’s in, and whether or not he’s being cast right now for a minor part or has been filming a larger part in secret. They did, however, release a picture of him in character.

twin peaks casts naomi watts

The new season of Twin Peaks is supposedly filming right now, but you wouldn’t know it. There is a dearth of solid information out there about Showtime‘s upcoming resurrection of David Lynch and Mark Frost‘s iconic series and the network has steadfastly refused to comment on the various cast members, old and new, who have reportedly joined the production. Laura Dern, Robert Knepper, Balthazar Getty, Amanda Seyfried, and Jennifer Jason Leigh have all reportedly been added to the cast, alongside original series stars Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Miguel Ferrer and Sherilyn Fenn, but only MacLachlan has been officially and publicly confirmed to be involved.

And now we have a new name to ponder as Lynch and Frost toil away in secret: Naomi Watts, a newcomer to the world of Twin Peaks but a veteran of Lynch’s special blend of weirdness.
