steven spielberg ranked bridge of spies

Sometimes director Steven Spielberg can toil away for years trying to find the perfect combination of elements to tell a story, and other times he’s able to fast-track the entire process from idea to finished product in less than a year. He’s doing the latter with a new film called The Papers (formerly known as The Post): he signed on in March and the movie comes out this December. It tells the true story of the controversial publication of classified documents known as the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s.

Spielberg had already managed to snag Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to star, but now he’s assembled a spectacular supporting cast to join his heavy hitters, including actors from Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Arrested DevelopmentFargo, and more. Ain’t no party like a Spielberg party. Read who else has come on board the filmmaker’s Pentagon Papers movie below.

Bob Odenkirk‘s Jimmy McGill is set to return on April 10, 2017 with Better Call Saul season 3.

Bob Odenkirk in Girlfriend's Day trailer

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 StephensonGirlfriend’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 Season 3 - Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring

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.

Better Call Saul Gus Fring Los Pollos Hermanos

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.  Read More »

Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul Season 3 Teaser

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 »

Better Call Saul season 3 first look photos

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.

‘Better Call Saul’ Will Be Back for Season 3

Better Call Saul Season 2

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 »

Better Call Saul Season 2

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 (1)

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 »
