Poor Jim Gordon. The guy really wants to clean up Gotham, and is clearly willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. But in Season 1, he encountered, greed, corruption, and evil at every turn. And based on the fact that Season 2 is titled “Rise of the Villains,” we’re gonna guess that doesn’t really change in Season 2.
A fresh Gotham Season 2 promo and a bunch of new photos showcase some of the friends and foes Jim (Ben McKenzie) will be dealing with when the show returns in a few weeks. Of particular interest are new characters like GCPD captain Nathaniel Barnes (Michael Chiklis), billionaire industrialist Theo Galavan (James Frain), and his loyal sister / enforcer Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas). Watch the Gotham Season 2 promo and see the new photos after the jump.

I’m going to have to hold my thoughts on this footage for Rod Lurie‘s remake of the landmark Sam Peckinpah film Straw Dogs, because after watching the trailer a couple times I’m still second-guessing what the intentions are.
What I can see is that this trailer is selling a very straight-up thriller, in which James Marsden and Kate Bosworth (both looking better than I expected — this might be a career high for Kate Bosworth, not that such a thing means much) have to deal with the advances of a bunch of tough rednecks when they move back to her hometown in Louisiana. The trailer gives most of the structure of the film away — basically two acts of intimidation followed by one extended siege setpiece — but doesn’t really give away what the movie is doing. So is it really a straight thriller? I doubt it, because that’s not in the DNA of Peckinpah’s original, and I suspect Rod Lurie’s plans to remake the film were more ambitious than delivering a mere thriller.
Check the trailer after the break and see what you think. Read More »
