manhattan night trailer

If you like trailers that probably reveal far too many plot points, then the trailer for Manhattan Night was cut just for you. The mystery — which might be hard to call a mystery after this trailer — involves a reporter that gets in over his head. Adrien Brody stars in the film, which looks like a bit like a throwback to the sexually-charged thrillers we rarely see these days.

Below, watch the Manhattan Night trailer.

sherlock season 4

Benedict Cumberbatch may have just wrapped production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange a few days ago, but he’s already started shooting Sherlock season 4. Call it keeping your nose to the grindstone. Call it having a supernatural ability to work with the bare minimum amount of sleep. In either case, Mr. Cumberbatch must have the same mutant gene as Dwayne Johnson. You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.

Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.

Archer Magnum PI

This is not the first time Archer has drastically changed the format for a whole season. Season five was Archer Vice, a pastel, florescent spoof of Miami Vice. The series was back to the spying game for season six, but season seven will find the Archer team working as private detectives instead.

No matter what they do, we can be sure the Archer gang will make outrageous, inappropriate claims and shout over each other in exasperated cacophonous chaos. We got to speak with Archer creator Adam Reed as he was putting the finishing touches on season seven. Archer returns Thursday, March 31 at 10PM on FX.  Read More »

Talented Mr. Ripley TV series

Patricia Highsmith‘s name may not be quite famous enough to be a brand unto itself, like Jane Austen or Stephen King, but you’ve been watching her work for ages even if you don’t realize it. Most recently, her novel The Price of Salt was turned into the remarkable drama Carol, but adaptations of her writing go all the way back to 1951’s Strangers on a Train.

Now the late author is headed to the small screen. Luthor creator Neil Cross is working on a TV series centered around Tom Ripley, the slippery con artist who features in several of Highsmith’s novels starting with The Talented Mr. RipleyRead More »

Gwendoline Christie in Game of Thrones

The first season of Jane Campion‘s Top of the Lake was a master class in tension and dread, a meticulously crafted mystery powered by pain and fury. Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss proved to be perfectly cast as the brittle detective at the heart of the action, trying to solve a puzzle in a hometown full of traumatic memories.

All of which means the second season has a pretty high bar to clear if it wants to live up to the first, let alone surpass it. But hiring Gwendoline Christie is probably a good first step. The Game of Thrones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress is set for a “major” role in the drama, and a bunch of new plot details have just been revealed to go along with that casting announcement.  Read More »

The Leftovers is never afraid of showing a little soul-crushing drama. The HBO show is often bleak, but it is about loss and suffering, so why wouldn’t it be? Perhaps the finest and most grueling scene in The Leftovers season two features Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) and Erika Murphy (Regina King), slowly poking each other’s wounds, and director Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah) uses some striking close-ups to fully convey their pain. It’s a powerful moment, one showrunner Damon Lindelof is quite fond of.

Below, read Lindelof’s thoughts on the show’s unconventional style of storytelling, director Mimi Leder‘s work, binge-watching, and more. (Spoilers are discussed).
