The new season of any TV show always comes with a certain level of anxiety and anticipation, but FX’s American Horror Story may inspire more curiosity than most. Whereas most shows simply continue the plot from the first season, creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that Season 2 of American Horror Story will start from scratch with fresh storylines and characters in a whole new setting. Even the title’s changed, somewhat — Season 2 is officially called American Horror Story: Asylum.
FX has already offered some clues as to the themes and imagery of the new season with its endless series of teasers, but now they’re giving us the best look yet. The first five minutes of American Horror Story: Asylum have just hit the web, and you can watch the (somewhat NSFW) video after the jump.

The film’s bound to draw some attention for its cast alone: Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Lynn Collins, Rosario Dawson, Kate Mara, Chris Pratt, Ari Graynor, Justin Long, Anthony Mackie, Ron Livingston, Aubrey Plaza, Oscar Isaac, Scott Porter, and Brian Geraghty all star. Watch the first trailer after the jump, and make sure you stick around for the adorably awkward old photos at the end.

Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, isn’t going to stop acting any time soon. And by the looks of his two most recent trailers — one for Things Fall Apart and this one for Setup — he might not start making good movies any time soon, either.
While Things Fall Apart looked like a saccharine feel-good drama gone horribly wrong, Setup looks like a heist thriller…gone horribly wrong. The film also stars Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe, both of whom look like they’re dragged down into the suck right alongside Mr. Jackson. See how much you can take, after the break. Read More »
