With the fall movie season well underway, we have new promos for two releases due out in November. The first is a 90-second spot for Flight, Robert Zemeckis‘ long-awaited return to live action. Denzel Washington stars as a pilot who’s lauded as a hero when miraculously saves a plane full of passengers with a deft crash-landing. But as an investigation digs deeper into the circumstances surrounding the incident, the story and his life begins to unravel.

The other is an extended TV spot for Rise of the Guardians, a DreamWorks Animation tale about all the mythological figures of childhood imagination — Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc. — banding together to save the world from an evil spirit called Pitch. Watch both videos after the jump.

After years spent directing mo-capped animated films, Robert Zemeckis has returned to live-action with Flight. The film casts Denzel Washington as an airline captain who lands a plane that is about to crash, only to be forced to face his own demons as the investigation into the crash goes on.

This is a pretty thrilling trailer, as it intercuts moments from the crash and its aftermath with the fallout that takes place afterward. And Denzel’s particular brand of cocky command is just right for a capable pilot. I hope this film pushes him out of the comfort zone he’s been in for a while; the trailer suggests it might. It also seems to give a lot away, so we’ll hope it is less revealing than it first appears. Read More »

When we first reported on the impending Miles Davis biopic from Notorious director George Tillman Jr. this past fall, we wondered how that news might affect the other Davis picture, which actor Don Cheadle has been developing for the past several years. As it turns out, Cheadle’s not too worried — because his story won’t be a straightforward biopic so much as a “cubist” “gangster pic” set in 1979, when the iconic American musician wasn’t even active in the music world. Wait, what? Read his quotes after the jump.

Dexter and Homeland ended their respective seasons last month, but the New Year brings some promising new reasons not to cancel your Showtime subscription just yet. Both Californication and Shameless are set to premiere this Sunday, as does the one I’ve really been looking forward to — freshman series House of Lies.

Based on a memoir by Martin Kihn, the series stars Don Cheadle as a successful but self-loathing management consultant, with Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, and Josh Lawson rounding out the cast as Cheadle’s colleagues. The network has put the entire first episode online ahead of its January 8 debut, and you can watch it after the jump. Be warned, however, that although the video has been modified for nudity and language, it’s not exactly workplace-friendly.

There’s plenty of good stuff in today’s TV Bits, including new trailers for HBO’s Luck and Showtime’s House of Lies, which I’m hoping will help the one bit of really bad news go down a bit easier: NBC’s benching its highly praised but under-watched Community. After the jump:

  • NBC puts Community on hiatus and picks up new show Legends
  • HBO’s Luck, starring Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, gets a trailer
  • Showrunner Matthew Weiner reveals how he wants AMC’s Mad Men to end
  • Showtime renews Weeds and drops a teaser for House of Lies
