Star Wars Rebels trailer

Star Wars Episode VII won’t be at San Diego Comic-Con this week, but Star Wars Rebels will be there in force. And before you roll your eyes, a new trailer has been revealed that’s as exciting and Star Wars-y as you’d hope it could be. The second trailer for the Disney XD show, which will premiere in October, offers lots more story, much more characterization and far more action than the first. Pair that with John Williams‘ iconic score, add in some super cool visuals and the new, extended Star Wars Rebels trailer officially has me pumped for the show.

We’ll have much more on Rebels in the coming week, including reactions to the first few episodes and interviews with the show’s creators. For now though, check out the awesome, extended Star Wars Rebels trailer. Read More »

Fargo season 2

Today FX announced the renewal of two of its most critically-acclaimed shows: Louie and Fargo. Writer/director/star/producer/editor Louis C.K. will create a fifth season of his unpredictable show. And Noah Hawley will get to make a second season of Fargo. But for the latter show there are some big changes ahead. The entire cast, story, and setting will be different for season two.

Update: Some story and setting details have been revealed about Fargo season 2 — that info is below. And part of this new info contradicts the previous report. The cast will be new, but a couple of characters will return, in younger incarnations.

Charlie Kaufman How and Why

For a while there, things were looking pretty good for Charlie Kaufman‘s return to TV. FX ordered his sitcom How & Why to pilot last year, and in short order it managed to attract talents like John Hawkes, Michael Cera, Sally Hawkins, and Catherine Keener.

But now the project has hit a snag. FX is reportedly passing on the sitcom, though producers are still hopeful it’ll get picked up elsewhere. Hit the jump for the latest details.

Simpsons Hollywood Bowl

When you’ve done 500 plus episodes over multiple decades, the backlog of content is staggering. In the case of The Simpsons, that doesn’t only mean hilarious jokes, animation cells and Emmy awards. It means music too. While most people associate the show’s music only with Danny Elfman‘s iconic theme, every week has lots of other music and that music is finally getting spotlighted.

The Simpsons Take the Bowl is live musical performance taking place for three nights this September at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. Hank Azaria will host an evening of music, cameos and never before seen footage. Read more about the Simpsons Hollywood Bowl performance below. Read More »

‘Homeland’ Season 4 Trailer: Carrie’s Back

Homeland Season 4 trailer

There were plenty of big plot developments in the last season of Homeland, but some things never change. Based on the new Season 4 trailer, people are still trusting Carrie (Claire Danes) to be on her best behavior in sensitive situations, even though that has worked out well approximately zero times in the history of the show.

But then again, watching Carrie break all the rules has always been part of the fun. Watch the first action-packed, drama-filled Homeland Season 4 trailer — and get details on the premiere — after the jump. (If you’re not caught up, be warned that spoilers follow.)

Twin Peaks blu-ray set

Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, the upcoming remastered blu-ray release of the two seasons of Twin Peaks and the feature film Fire Walk With Me, contains a huge treat for fans. One disc in the set features ‘The Missing Pieces,’ a feature-length compilation of deleted and extended scenes. Most are from Fire Walk With Me, but there are a few from the series itself. It’s an incredible collection of footage that for decades has been known to exist, but which has never been seen.

‘The Missing Pieces’ premiered in Los Angeles last night, and I’ve compiled a list of what I’d consider the ten most essential scenes. They are mostly character moments that give us something never seen elsewhere in the series or the film. With three exceptions all these picks are standalone scenes rather than extended edits. But two of the extended scenes are among the most-desired bits of film in the set, and the last one, which comes from the series itself, will be seen as an absolute treasure by some.

Note: There are no big Twin Peaks spoilers below but obviously there are some spoilers for the content of the new ‘Missing Pieces’ feature on the Blu-ray set. Read More »

David Lynch wood

David Lynch recognizes true beauty in wood.

Last night at the Vista Theater in Los Angeles, David Lynch, the American Film Institute, and the home entertainment divisions of CBS and Paramount held an unusual event: the theatrical premiere of deleted scenes from Twin Peaks and the feature film Fire Walk With Me. We don’t see too many theatrical premieres for deleted scenes, but in this case it was a feature-length footage presentation with David Lynch, much of the cast, and some of the crew of Fire Walk With Me in attendance.

The event really began with a short introduction from David Lynch, and anyone who hoped that he might talk about the context of the footage or the history of the show would find that Lynch had something else in mind. His short speech almost reads like a eulogy to the Twin Peaks character who suffered the strangest fate of any in the series, as he extols the grace and value of wood. Watch his introduction after the break. Read More »
