Billions teaser trailer

Fans of Showtime’s series Homeland will soon get to see Emmy-winning actor Damian Lewis in a whole new light in the cable network’s political and financial drama series Billions.

The 12-episode first season doesn’t start airing until 2016, but the first teaser trailer has just arrived online, showcasing in intense game of cat and mouse as a corrupt billionaire hedge fund king (Lewis) is pursued by U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti). This looks like quite a compelling drama, even in just this single-minute teaser.

Now a new Queen of the Desert trailer has been released, and you can watch it after the jump. Damian Lewis and James Franco also star.

Queen of the Desert Trailer

Since the last foray into historical drama by Nicole Kidman resulted in the continuously delayed and forgotten Grace of Monaco, maybe teaming up with the eccentric Werner Herzog for his narrative Queen of the Desert might yield better results.

The first trailer for the Berlin Film Festival selection has just arrived, showcasing the story of cartographer Gertrude Bell, an explorer who negotiated with Arab nations and helped establish the countries of Iraq and Jordan. The film follows around ten years of Bell’s life, focusing mostly on how her career was impacted by various romances over the years with suitors played by Robert Pattinson, James Franco and Damian Lewis.

Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle

We hate spoilers. And so does actress Jennifer Lawrence. While doing an interview on the red carpet of the SAG Awards, one of the interviewers decided to spoil the ending of season three of Showtime’s television series Homeland even though Lawrence had just told the “reporter” that she had only seen the first two seasons. Watch the video after the jump to see Jennifer Lawrence try to channel her anger into comedy. I’m not sure I could keep it that calm.

Homeland Damian Lewis

Briefly: For a couple years, Werner Herzog has been moving towards a new dramatic feature, Queen of the Desert, which will chronicle the story of pioneering anthropologist/explorer/political advisor Gertrude Bell. While Naomi Watts was once set to play Bell, the role will now be filled by Nicole Kidman. To play Bell’s paramour, Lt. Col. Charles Doughty-Wylie, Herzog has now recruited Damian Lewis, whose notable recent work is on the Showtime series Homeland.

Deadline reports that the film will shoot beginning in December of this year.

The character to be played by Lewis was a British war hero who, while married, engaged in an affair with Bell during the last years of his life. But it was a very chaste affair, conducted entirely via letter correspondence. How does that become a compelling screen story? There can be quite a lot of narration and longing looks aimed to a point off-screen, for starters. But this could also be a device to let the screen version of Bell voice observations and frustrations as she goes about her work building what became the the early political incarnation of the modern Middle East.

Homeland Season 3 - Brody

Season 3 of Homeland has been all about Brody, in the sense that nearly everything that’s happened so far is a reaction to his alleged actions from Season 2. But the man himself has been curiously MIA so far, so we can only speculate about what he’s been up to this whole time.

Happily, it seems we’re about to find out. The show is teaming with Audible.com to release a half-hour audio episode narrated by Brody (Damian Lewis), setting up a story that’ll fit into the early episodes of Season 3. Hit the jump for more details on this collaboration.

Homeland

Loyalty has always been a major theme on Homeland. The entire premise of Season 1 was Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul (Mandy Patinkin) trying to suss out just whom Brody (Damian Lewis) was working for. Things got more complicated still for Brody in Season 2, what with all the double- and triple-crossing. Now, in Season 3, it may be Carrie’s turn to pick a side once and for all.

Showtime has revealed another teaser and a new set of posters from the next season of Homeland. The new tagline, “Pledge Allegiance,” suggests that our main characters will have to take a stand — and, judging by the somber expressions on their faces, that it won’t be easy for any of them. Hit the jump to check them out. (Spoilers for Season 2 ahead.)
