Girls Season 6 Trailer and Crashing Season 1 Teaser

HBO’s current run of original programming is winding down before the end of the year. Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all have their season finales in the next few weeks, but they’ll all be back with second seasons, presumably around the same time of the year in 2017. That means it’s time to look ahead at HBO’s original programming coming early next year, and that includes the end of one of their hit shows, and the first season for an all-new comedy series.

The final trailer for Lena Dunham‘s hit series Girls has arrived online along with the first trailer for Crashing, the new comedy series starring comedian and former late night host Pete Holmes. Watch them both after the jump. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we let the Duplass brothers take us into the world of animals and insects, unbox the world of people who can taste color, head to Uganda for shirtless dudes kicking ass, catch up with Tommy from Snatch and find he’s ready to throw down, and get to know a Nobel-laureate who has a fascinating tale to tell.

Judd Apatow Pete Holmes HBO Show

Comedy director Judd Apatow already has firm footing at HBO as the executive producer of the network’s hit show Girls from writer, director and star Lena Dunham, and now he’s hoping to add another show to the cable giant’s comedy line-up.

Comedian Pete Holmes, former star of his own TBS late night show, will star in a semi-autobiographical series called Crashing, playing a version of himself. If you’re not acquainted with the comedy of Pete Holmes, I suggest educating yourself immediately.

Pete Holmes' Batman vs Superman

The real Batman vs. Superman won’t hit theaters for another two years, but while we wait comedian Pete Holmes offers his own vision for us to ponder. In his Batman vs. Superman, the Man of Steel proposes a team-up — only for the Caped Crusader to shoot him down, dismissing him as “fucking whitebread.”

The gloves come off at that point, as they bicker about their secret identities, their symbols, and their dead parents (“Get over your dead parents already!”) Commissioner Gordon even gets involved, though he’s frankly not much help either. Check it out after the jump.
