hugh grant next project

Hugh Grant has found his new niche playing the baddie. After shedding his rom-com leading man persona to play the flamboyant villain in Paddington 2 (in what is arguably his best role to date), Grant is digging deeper into the dark roles that are being offered him, recently coming off playing the sociopathic antagonist of David E. Kelley’s HBO series, The Undone. And he’s got one more under his belt, the actor teased, revealing that his next project will be a “mockumentary about 2020” from Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker.

The Undoing Trailer

Despite some reported creative woes behind the scenes, Nicole Kidman clearly loved teaming up with creator David E. Kelley on HBO’s Big Little Lies, because she’s stepping back into the world of murder mystery among the upper class with the new limited series The Undoing.

Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s New York Times best-selling book You Should Have Known, HBO’s The Undoing follows a successful therapist, Grace Fraser (Kidman), along with her husband, Jonathan (Hugh Grant, who’s been taking some tantalizingly seedier roles recently), and their young son (Noah Jupe), who attends an elite private school in New York City. But suddenly, all of their lives are shaken up by a violent murder, and her husband seems to be the primary suspect. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

In HBO’s Big Little Lies, Nicole Kidman plays a woman whose life slowly becomes unraveled after a violent death occurs. Now she’s about to reunite with Big Little Lies writer David E. Kelley for another series in which something very similar seems to happen.

In a new HBO limited series called The Undoing, Kidman returns to a high-status role playing a classy, big city author whose family’s life is thrown into utter chaos in the aftermath of a murder. Check out the newest trailer below.

hannibal casting

Hannibal is one of the best shows of the 21st century. A daring, strange, artistic blend of horror, lust, and fine dining, the Bryan Fuller series inspired by the books of Thomas Harris was so good that it was almost hard to believe it was a real network show. On top of all that, the series version of Hannibal Lecter, as played memorably by Mads Mikkelsen, became just as striking as Anthony Hopkins’ take on the character.

But according to Fuller, Mikkelsen’s take on the cannibal psychiatrist almost didn’t happen, as NBC wanted either John Cusack or Hugh Grant to play the role.

The Undoing trailer

Update: We’d previously covered HBO’s officially-released teasers for this show, but the premium channel has since replaced them with different versions. The biggest difference is that the earlier versions said the show would be premiering on May 10, 2020, but these new versions have changed the premiere date to a more vague “this fall.” Our original article continues.

Nicole Kidman continues her HBO show reign with The Undoing, a new limited series Kidman stars in and executive produces. Based on the novel You Should Have Known, the series finds Kidman playing a therapist whose life unravels following a murder and a public disaster that may or may not involve her husband, played by Hugh Grant. It’s all very mysterious and tense, and is likely designed to keep viewers addicted and hungry for more episodes. Watch The Undoing trailer below.

The Gentlemen Trailer

Since we’re almost to the end of 2019, it’s time to start looking forward to the movies of 2020. Normally, January is a dumping ground for some pretty bad movies, but one possible bright spot appears to be director Guy Ritchie‘s return to shady crime in London

The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, the overseer of a massive marijuana empire in London. But when word that he might be dropping out of the business gets around, he’s challenged by a young up-and-comer (Henry Golding), and soon everyone seems to be looking to fill the void that might get left behind. Watch a new The Gentlemen trailer below to get a look at some new footage. Read More »

the gentlemen trailer

Despite what its title implies, The Gentlemen is not afraid to get a little dirty. The poster for the Guy Ritchie crime comedy seems to suggest some sort of riff on Kingsman or even the director’s sleek 2015 spy thriller The Man from U.N.C.L.E. But with the release of its first trailer, The Gentlemen may in fact be a bit of an ironic title.

Originally named Toff GuysThe Gentlemen is more of a throwback to Ritchie’s grimy crime capers like Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Matthew McConaughey leads an all-star cast in The Gentlemen as a notorious American drug lord who finds himself embroiled in a London territory war. Watch The Gentlemen trailer below.

Grant’s career is long and storied, but if you’re curious as to what the actor thinks is the best movie he’s ever been in, look no further than Paddington 2.
