Crossbones trailer

As we’ve seen over the past few years, Disney’s had some trouble getting a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie off the ground. In the meantime, though, TV’s been more than happy to fill that watery niche — first with Starz’s Black Sails, and now with NBC’s Crossbones.

The Peacock has just released the first Crossbones trailer, which stars John Malkovich as the legendary pirate Blackbeard. As if that’s not promising enough, Crossbones also happens to be the creation of Neil Cross, who was behind the acclaimed British drama Luther. Watch the video after the jump.

Anna Kendrick Little Mermaid

Later this year, Anna Kendrick will playing classic Disney princess Cinderella in the mash-up musical Into the Woods. But first, she got the chance to cycle through a few other Disney princesses during her Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend.

For her opening monologue, the Pitch Perfect star channeled Belle of Beauty and the Beast, flitting across the SNL stage as if it were an 18th century French village. Later on, she did her best take on a modernized The Little Mermaid as an Ariel who — much to Ursula’s horror — emulates contemporary pop singers like Britney Spears and Kesha. Hit the jump to watch both videos.

Rosemary's Baby tv teaser

Plenty of movies have taken inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby over the decades, including, recently, Hell Baby and Devil’s Due. But NBC is going the direct route by simply adapting Ira Levin‘s original novel into a four-part miniseries.

Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams play Rosemary and her husband Guy, a young couple who’ve just moved from New York to Paris. When they discover that she is pregnant with their first child, they’re initially thrilled. But joy turns to fear as strange things begin to happen.

While it’s not technically a remake of Roman Polanski‘s movie, the comparisons are going to be inevitable. So how does this new version stack up? Watch the first Rosemary’s Baby tv teaser after the jump and judge for yourself.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

If you tuned into Jimmy Fallon‘s debut as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show last night, you caught Spike Lee‘s latest project without even realizing it. The filmmaker directed the opening title sequence, which means, as Fallon happily put it, that “our show opens with a Spike Lee joint.”

The choice of Lee couldn’t be more appropriate as Fallon’s premiere also marked the return of The Tonight Show to New York City after four decades in Los Angeles. Watch the sequence after the jump.

John Constantine

Marvel may be running circles around DC in the big-screen franchise department, but the latter is doing quite well for itself on the small screen. One of several DC-based shows in the works right now is Constantine, and it’s moving quickly. The drama got a pilot order from NBC earlier this month, and has now picked up Neil Marshall (The Descent) to helm. More details after the jump.

Hannibal Season 2 header

One of the best food shows of last year wasn’t really a food show at all. In fact, all of the food on it was stuff you’d never, ever want to eat. But the way Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) expertly crafts his meals and then plates them just so… our stomachs couldn’t help but rumble even as our disgusted brains were screaming “But that meal is made of people!”

Well, with February coming in fast, and the Season 2 premiere of NBC’s Hannibal along with it, it’s time to get used to feeling that cognitive dissonance again. This first teaser should help ease you in. In it, Hannibal prepares yet another elegant-looking recipe, with some very special ingredients. Check it out, along with some new promo art, after the jump.
