Trust trailer

It took a tremendous amount of restraint for me not to include the words “Brendan Fraser” and “cowboy hat” somewhere in the headline of this article, and after you watch this trailer for the new FX series Trust, you’ll see what I mean.

Danny Boyle, the director of movies like Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, and 127 Hours, is heading to television to tell the story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, a true story that’s now familiar to anyone who’s seen Ridley Scott‘s All The Money in the World. But while Scott’s film leans more toward being gothic and stately, Boyle’s take on the same subject matter is bursting with the propulsive style for which he’s known.

Plus, Brendan Fraser wears a cowboy hat! Check out the full Trust trailer below.

Trust teaser

If you thought All The Money In the World was the only J. Paul Getty-related drama on the horizon, guess again: FX has an entire TV series about the Getty family coming up. The Danny Boyle-directed series, called Trust, features Donald Sutherland in the role of cold-hearted billionaire J. Paul Getty, and the first Trust teaser gives us a look at his sure-to-be-memorable performance.

Ridley Scott’s All The Money In the World made headlines recently when Scott decided to remove scenes involving actor Kevin Spacey and reshoot them with Christopher Plummer. Spacey, and now Plummer, plays J. Paul Getty, an oil tycoon who refused to pay the ransom when his grandson John Paul Getty III was kidnapped. We have yet to see what Plummer’s take on the performance may be, but he apparently has some competition from Donald Sutherland. Sutherland is playing the same role in the FX series Trust, and the first Trust teaser shows us Sutherland’s droll, darkly amusing take on the character. Watch it below. Read More »

T2 Trainspotting Featurette

Earlier this year, Danny Boyle brought back the drug-addled characters of his cult favorite Trainspotting for a sequel that took 20 years to get off the ground. T2 Trainspotting caught up with Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle as Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie at a drastically different time in their lives.

T2 Trainspotting is coming to Blu-ray and DVD next week, and in honor of the film’s home video release by Sony Pictures, we have an exclusive clip from one of the special features with director Danny Boyle sitting with his cast to talk about returning to these characters two decades later. It looks like a fascinating, casual chat.
