I can’t wait for the October return of Steven Soderbergh‘s The Knick, which will be going into its second season. Once again, Soderbergh directs and shoots every episode of the series, and probably does much of the editing as well. This new look at the second season is even more appealing than the last because it teases far more stuff, and far weirder stuff — for instance, what’s up with that fireball blowing up in some surgeon’s face towards the end of this latest The Knick trailer?

Clive Owen is going from early 20th century New York to futuristic outer space, thanks to director Luc Besson.

Here’s a gorgeous teaser for The Knick season two, which comes complete with an announcement that Steven Soderbergh‘s excellent series returns to Cinemax on October 16. Clive Owen and most of the rest of the S1 cast returns, but this time at least part of the story goes to San Francisco along with Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance). We still don’t know much about the thrust of this season, though we can expect it to deal with heroin, further competition over medical advances, and gangsters and loan sharking, for starters.
Not that you’ll see too much of all that in The Knick S2 teaser below, which is mostly lovely atmospheric shots, albeit ones that have a quiet beauty and sometimes even a grand sense of oppressiveness to them. Read More »
Way back in late 2012 the film The Last Knights was announced with Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen starring in a story about a warrior (Owen) who leads a force that seeks to avenge their dishonored master. The film was shot under the direction of Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya (The Legend of Goemon) based on a script by Michael Konyves (Barney’s Version). Then, well, it kinda sat around for a while. Now there’s a Last Knights trailer, featuring a lot of talk about honor and swordplay from Owen, and you can have a look at below. Read More »

I love Steven Soderbergh‘s “retirement,” and we haven’t even seen much of it yet. The Knick, the ten-episode Cinemax show directed by Soderbergh, doesn’t premiere until August 8. When it premieres, we’ll see Clive Owen as a surgeon, or what passed for a surgeon in 1900, when the Knickerbocker Hospital in New York was a barrier of sorts between life and death. Cinemax evidently likes the show enough to order a second season; the show’s renewal was announced today. Season two of The Knick will also be a ten-episode affair, and Soderbergh will once again direct the entire span.

There’s a lot of news today about television efforts from Steven Soderbergh. First, there was the cast info for his Amazon pilot Red Oaks, which Soderbergh is producing and David Gordon Green will direct. Now we’ve got a set of character posters for Soderbergh’s Cinemax show The Knick, which premieres later this year. The show stars Clive Owen as Dr. John W. Thackery, a forward-thinking surgeon at the New York Knickerbocker Hospital at the turn of the century.
A set of posters for the show supports the set of trailers we’ve seen so far, and gives a spotlight to many members of the supporting cast, and also to what appears to be an impressive attention to detail on the part of the wardrobe and production design departments. Additionally, Soderbergh has been talking about the show, and says that the bracing experience of making the first season has him eager to to a second. Read More »
We’ve been interested in The Knick for months — it’s Steven Soderbergh, after all, directing all ten episodes of a limited cable series on Cinemax. Even better, it has Clive Owen starring as a pioneering surgeon in New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital at the turn of the century. Oh, and the trailers up until this one have all featured the astounding sounds of saxophonist Colin Stetson. (Whose music is also used heavily in The Rover, FYI.) Now there’s a new trailer for The Knick, and it is the most revealing yet. This one prioritizes dialogue over sound and image, even if most of that dialogue is voice-over from Owen. Watch below.

Cinemax is going slow with the release of footage from Steven Soderbergh‘s TV show The Knick, but that’s OK. The series tells of the early days of modern surgical medicine, focusing on one doctor (played by Clive Owen) at New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital. The prior teases were basically still images with ominous music from saxophonist extraordinaire Colin Stetson. This one is still short at 30 seconds, but it at last gives us some dialogue and moving images. They’re still fairly ominous, and weirdly appealing. Check out the latest The Knick teaser below.
