For a comedy, Girls‘ second season was pretty damn grim. Not meth empire / zombie apocalypse grim, perhaps, but dark nonetheless. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) skipped town, Marnie (Allison Williams) got fired, Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) struggled with her first real relationship, and Hannah (Lena Dunham) had a full-on nervous breakdown. But it looks like their fortunes are changing for the better in Season 3.
The first full-length trailer feels like a return to the lighter tone of Season 1, in contrast to the melancholy of Season 2. All of the women are still works in progress — that’s why we love them — but they seem to be better off than they were the last time we saw them. As Marnie puts it, “I am okay. I may not seem okay and I may not be okay now, but I am, like, okay.” Watch the trailer after the jump.

A comedian and a folk singer go on a tour. One’s a success, the other is not, but they’re friends and, no, this isn’t the setup for a joke. It’s the plot of Folk Hero & Funny Guy, a new Kickstarter project that just went online. It’ll star Alex Karpovsky, who you know from Girls, Sleepwalk With Me and Inside Llewyn Davis as the “Funny Guy” and is written by eventual director Jeff Grace, who produced and starred in It’s A Disaster.
We’re excited to debut the poster for the film, which you can see below, along with more details on the film. Read More »

As devotees of Louie and Sherlock are sighing over extralong gaps between seasons, Girls fans are enjoying some schedule shuffling in the opposite direction. Although the first season of Girls debuted in the spring, Season 2’s kicking off a little earlier than expected in January 2013. Which means the marketing push starts now.
HBO’s already offered up a not-terribly-revealing teaser and a handful of stills from the upcoming season. Now they’re ramping up the campaign with the first full trailer, which features a nice mix of fresh and familiar faces. Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her usual gang are all here, along with returning guest stars like Jorma Taccone and Chris O’Dowd and newcomers like Donald Glover, Patrick Wilson, and Rita Wilson. Watch it after the jump.
