War of the Worlds TV Series Trailer

Last year saw a BBC miniseries adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic sci-fi novel War of the Worlds bring the story of invading aliens to Edwardian England. But there’s another eight-part series coming from Epix that finds modern day Europe dealing with an extra terrestrial threat. However, as the War of the Worlds series trailer shows, it doesn’t look like we’ll see much of the initial attack on Earth like Steven Spielberg’s big screen take from 2005. Instead, we’ll be dealing with the aftermath in a way that feels like The Walking Dead or A Quiet Place. Read More »

Pennyworth trailer new

The first Pennyworth teaser, which debuted back in March, gave us little more than some quick flashes of the upcoming Epix show about the early days of Batman’s butler. But a full trailer has now arrived, and it paints a much fuller picture of the world that Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller and his team have created here. Check out the trailer below, but fair warning: If you watch this, there’s a 95% chance you will be tempted to do a Michael Caine impression for the rest of the day. Read More »

Pennyworth

The creators of Gotham are going even further back into the Batman legend with their Epix series Pennyworth. We’ve already learned how the origin story of Alfred Pennyworth will show how a young Alfred (Jack Bannon) met Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) in 1960s London and ends up battling the descendants of Jack the Ripper. Now we have a few more details.

Pennyworth creators Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon were on a Television Critics Association panel this weekend for Pennyworth along with cast members where they talked about taking a key cue from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, their alternate 1960s setting, and something you might not know about Bruce Wayne’s future butler.

Everyone is getting the “hot, young” treatment these days, so why not Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s loyal and trustworthy butler? The once stiff-lipped butler has already received a devil-may-care makeover in the Fox prequel series Gotham, but Pennyworth is kicking things up a notch. According to Pennyworth plot details shared by executive producer Danny Cannon, this Alfred (played by Jack Bannon) is a toughened former SAS soldier living in swinging ’60s London and battling the descendants of…Jack the Ripper?

Breaking news: the hot young Alfred show is still happening, and hot young Alfred has been found. Jack Bannon, who appeared in The Imitation Game and on Ripper Street, will play the future butler in Pennyworth, a new EPIX series. It seems that before Alfred started washing Batman’s socks and dusting the many bookcases in Wayne Manor, he was an ass-kicking soldier. In addition to Bannon, Fleabag actor Ben Aldridge will play Thomas Wayne, Batman’s dad.

Get Shorty trailer

We already have one great Get Shorty adaptation. Barry Sonnenfeld‘s 1995 film is a hugely faithful adaptation, one that captures not only the spirit of the book but doesn’t make many departures from Elmore Leonard‘s novel. The Epix series, on the other hand, is taking the story of a criminal breaking into the movie business in a different direction.

Below, watch the Get Shorty trailer.
