Noah Hawley did the seeming impossible, turning the Coen Brothers acclaimed film Fargo into a TV series. Not only did he do the name justice, but FX’s Fargo is one of the most acclaimed series on television in its own right, joining the ranks of Breaking Bad, Man Men, Game of Thrones and True Detective on lists and nominations. So far there have been no characters from the movie Fargo in the series, so no Marge Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard. It’s all been original characters like Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and police chief Molly Solverson (Alison Tolman).
For season two, Hawley took Fargo back to 1979 with an all new cast of characters. Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson play cops investigating the new crime, and Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons play a husband and wife who get wrapped up in it. I spoke with Hawley after FX’s Fargo panel for the Television Critics Association. Season two premieres October 12 at 10 on FX.

Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind Lawless, The Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.

I don’t know anything about the book The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but the title is so weird and awesome that I might have to buy it today. Or I could wait until the movie version comes out, and that might be pretty good, too, because Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones is in talks to lead the cast. This move does make me wonder about the future for Williams and the in-development film adaptation of The Last of Us, however, for reasons I’ll go into below. Read More »

The lowest-profile DC comics series on The CW seems to be iZombie, but that doesn’t exactly mean the show is struggling. It just doesn’t get the attention of The Flash or Arrow.
That said, iZombie had a healthy audience in its first season thanks in part to a combination of good casting and perfectly-pitched scripts. The series really inspired a solid core fanbase as it also garnered critical acclaim, with praise particularly directed at the show’s comic wit. The series returns for a second season in early October, and the new iZombie S2 trailer is here. Read More »
