Trust teaser

If you thought All The Money In the World was the only J. Paul Getty-related drama on the horizon, guess again: FX has an entire TV series about the Getty family coming up. The Danny Boyle-directed series, called Trust, features Donald Sutherland in the role of cold-hearted billionaire J. Paul Getty, and the first Trust teaser gives us a look at his sure-to-be-memorable performance.

Ridley Scott’s All The Money In the World made headlines recently when Scott decided to remove scenes involving actor Kevin Spacey and reshoot them with Christopher Plummer. Spacey, and now Plummer, plays J. Paul Getty, an oil tycoon who refused to pay the ransom when his grandson John Paul Getty III was kidnapped. We have yet to see what Plummer’s take on the performance may be, but he apparently has some competition from Donald Sutherland. Sutherland is playing the same role in the FX series Trust, and the first Trust teaser shows us Sutherland’s droll, darkly amusing take on the character. Watch it below. Read More »

Following up to the acclaimed first season of American Crime Story is a daunting task. How do you match the tour-de-force performance of Sarah Paulson and the tight character beats of The People v. O.J. Simpson? By leaning into the lurid, if the trailer for the second season of FX’s true-crime anthology series, titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, is anything to go by.

The murder of Gianni Versace is embroiled in Hollywood sensationalism. He was a renowned and openly gay fashion designer who was murdered by a spree killer who was enamored with him. The American Crime Story trailer hones in on the troubled relationship between Versace (Edgar Ramirez) and his killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss).

Detroit was Kathryn Bigelow‘s first feature film since 2012’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty, but the harrowing historical drama didn’t seem to have nearly as big an impact as Annapurna Pictures had hoped. The film garnered middling box office and mixed reviews and seemed to have faded from everyone’s memory after it left theaters. Now, sensing that this year’s Oscar race is slightly underwhelming, Annapurna is giving Bigelow’s film another chance with a re-release, and a new Detroit trailer has arrived to signal the new awards season push.
