Greeting card writers don’t get a whole lot of movies made about them, but maybe they should. Between (500) Days of Summer and now Girlfriend’s Day, I’m starting to suspect their lives are actually super exciting.
Directed by Michael Paul Stephenson, Girlfriend’s Day stars Bob Odenkirk as Ray, the former “Bill Shakespeare of romance cards,” who finds himself stuck in a miserable rut. When a politician establishes a new holiday called “Girlfriend’s Day,” and announces a contest for the most romantic card, Ray decides to put himself out there… and soon finds himself tangled in a web of conspiracy and intrigue. Watch the Girlfriend’s Day trailer below. Read More »

Better Call Saul hasn’t exactly been subtle with its hints that Breaking Bad baddie Gus Fring would come knocking in the very near future. Last week, they went so far as to release a Los Pollos Hermanos “commercial” featuring Giancarlo Esposito back in character. But it’s only now they’ve finally gone and made it official. Yes, Gus Fring will be in Better Call Saul season 3 — and it sounds like he’ll be giving Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) something to chew on.
The first Better Call Saul clip, however, has nothing to do with chicken or drugs or Gus Fring whatsoever. Instead, it checks in on Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), who seem to be feeling a little awkward about the way things went down in season two.

It’s not like we really need to be convinced to tune in for Better Call Saul season three. The superb first two seasons are reason enough to return for another helping. But just in case you’d like something to whet your appetite, AMC’s cooked up a fun little promo — not for Better Call Saul, exactly, but for Los Pollos Hermanos.
Of course, Breaking Bad fans know this cheery fast food operation isn’t exactly what it seems. It’s actually a front for an extremely successful criminal enterprise run by ruthless kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). AMC still isn’t saying whether Fring’s back in season three. But they sure seem interested in reminding you that this guy’s currently kicking around Albuquerque somewhere. Make of that what you will. See the potential Better Call Saul Gus Fring tease below.

As of Better Call Saul season 2, Slippin’ Jimmy still has a ways to go before he fully transforms into Saul Goodman. Yes, he’s done some sketchy stuff, but he’s still trying to be a reasonably good person, and he’s still trying to build a respectable career as lawyer Jimmy McGill. But the tragedy of the show is that we already know exactly where those efforts will get him.
The first Better Call Saul season 3 teaser trailer emphasizes the “criminal” part of “criminal lawyer,” hinting that Jimmy could be headed for a big fall. Check it out below. Read More »

Hours ago we got a peek behind the scenes of Better Call Saul season two. Now we’ve got a little look ahead at season three, which will premiere in 2017.
As a spinoff to Breaking Bad, one of the most acclaimed TV dramas of all time, Better Call Saul came pre-loaded with massive hype and sky-high expectations. And the show has delivered. Over the course of its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has proven to be a worthy successor and complement to that earlier series — but it’s also emerged as its own thing, hilarious and thrilling and surprisingly heart-wrenching. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Slippin’ Jimmy, so click on through to see some Better Call Saul season 3 first look photos.

Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman has been a wonder to watch: precise, deliberate, gorgeously shot, impressively acted, and more than a little heartbreaking. And the evolution is going to continue for at least another year. AMC has just renewed Better Call Saul for a third season, just as the series hits the halfway point of its second. Read More »

With exactly one month to go until its return, Better Call Saul has finally, at long last, released the first bit of new footage from season 2. Jimmy McGill is still Jimmy McGill at this point, not Saul Goodman, but you can see a bit of good old Slippin’ Jimmy slipping out. And no wonder, given what we saw of his life last season. Watch the first Better Call Saul season 2 footage after the jump. Read More »

Better Call Saul may have Breaking Bad to thank for its initial wave of hype, but it was Better Call Saul‘s own achievements that won over the critics, and kept audiences coming back week after week. It didn’t take long for the spinoff series to establish itself as a worthwhile drama in its own right, with its own pitch-black sense of humor, painful emotional truths, and fully broken-in universe.
Not that there was ever much doubt, on AMC’s part anyway. The network renewed Better Call Saul for a second season months before the first season even premiered, and now we’re just a few short weeks away from reuniting with the future Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk). A new piece of Better Call Saul season 2 key art offers a (mostly metaphorical) trials to come for poor Jimmy in the coming season. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Better Call Saul might not be Breaking Bad-level dark, but it’s still not what you’d call a lighthearted comedy. The show breaks down, step by step, how Jimmy McGill, a born con artist trying desperately to go straight, transforms into Saul Goodman, the conscience-free “criminal lawyer” we met in Breaking Bad. It’s funny, sure, but it’s often sad and occasionally downright heart-wrenching.
And it looks like that blend of comedy and tragedy will continue next year, based on the first two teasers for Better Call Saul Season 2. The atmosphere on set, however, looks less “Greek tragedy” than “workplace sitcom,” as seen in a Better Call Saul gag reel. (Nothing breaks the tension quite like a prop that won’t stay put, or in the case of a certain dollar bill, a prop that stubbornly insists on staying put when it’s not supposed to.) Watch the Better Call Saul Season 2 teaser and Season 1 gag reel after the jump. Read More »
