This winter’s been so mild that it feels more like April than February, but unfortunately, actual spring is still some weeks away — which means we’ve still got some waiting to do before HBO kicks off its spring schedule. Thankfully, the network’s been good about reminding us of exactly what we have to look forward to, in the form of teasers, trailers, clips, and the like.
Today, we have another new trailer for Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow‘s Girls, as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes for Armando Iannucci‘s Veep and of course, Game of Thrones. Watch them after the jump.

While I’m sure that Luck, Life’s Too Short, and Angry Boys each have their charms, it’s HBO’s spring lineup I’m really looking forward to. Between Game of Thrones‘ return and the debuts of Judd Apatow’s Girls and Armando Iannucci’s Veep, I already know exactly what I’ll be doing each Sunday from April through June. And now, at long last, the network’s provided some premiere dates to mark on the calendar. Get the details and watch the trailers after the jump.

Drew Goddard‘s long delayed deconstructive horror film, The Cabin in the Woods, is so good it deserves a massive coming out party. That’s exactly what it’s going to get this March.
The Cabin in the Woods was just announced as the opening night film of the 2012 South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival which will take place in Austin, Texas from March 9-17. Co-writer and producer Joss Whedon will be on hand for a conversation panel the day after the upcoming HBO TV show Girls, produced by Judd Apatow and starring Lena Dunham, will also debut, screening several episodes along with Q&As featuring much of the creative team. Read more about the film, the show and the festival itself after the jump. Read More »

If CBS’ 2 Broke Girls didn’t quite prove to be edgy enough for you, perhaps HBO’s thematically similar new series Girls will fit the bill. Created by Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and executive produced by Dunham, Judd Apatow, and Jenni Konner, the comedy follows a group of 20something women — aspiring writer Hannah (Dunham) and her BFFs (Jemima Kirke from Tiny Furniture and Brian Williams’ daughter Allison Williams) — as they struggle to make it in the big city. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Alan Ball goes to the well once again, Judd Apatow makes a return to TV and Professor Dumbledore bets the ponies. Just another day on the cable powerhouse that is HBO.
Ball, the Oscar-winning show runner of Six Feet Under and True Blood just shot a pilot called All Signs of Death, based on Charlie Huston‘s book The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death, which follows a trauma cleaning unit, much like Sunshine Cleaning, but less cute. Apatow, who made his name with TV shows Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, is executive producing a pilot called Girls, which was created by Lena Dunham, currently riding the wave off her indie film Tiny Furniture. It’s a more realistic take on the Sex and the City formula. Both shows are only in the pilot stage and neither has been picked up for series yet. It they do, Ball and Apatow will executive produce. (UPDATE: HBO passed on All Signs of Death.)
Finally, Michael Gambon has been cast as a recurring regular on the Michael Mann-produced series Luck, starring Dustin Hoffman, which is about the seedy underworld of horse racing. Read more about all three HBO nuggets of news after the jump. Read More »
