the third day trailer new

HBO’s new series The Third Day looks promising, and I was looking forward to seeing it next month. Sadly, I – and everyone else – will have to wait a little longer. The series is the latest bit of entertainment that’s had to shuffle its release due to the coronavirus outbreak, and now won’t be premiering until the fall. But in the meantime, you can check out a new trailer below.

HBO is ready to get immersive with The Third Day, a new limited series starring Jude Law and Naomie Harris. The series tells several stand-alone (but also interconnected stories) over six episodes.

The Nest review

In 2011, writer/director Sean Durkin left his mark on the Sundance Film Festival with Martha Marcy May Marlene, an intense cult drama that introduced the world to Elizabeth Olsen and won Durkin the festival’s U.S. Dramatic Directing Award. It’s been nine years since he’s made a movie, but he hasn’t missed a beat. Durkin has finally returned with his second feature, The Nest, which turns his focus to money – more specifically, one man’s desire for it and the chances he’ll take to get it. Read More »

the new pope trailer new

It’s Pope Season! Not only do we have The Two Popes arriving on Netflix this month, we also have The New Pope headed to HBO a month later. That’s enough popes for everyone, I think. The New Pope is the second season of The Young Pope, in which Jude Law wore sunglasess, smoked cigarettes, and also became the leader of the Catholic Church. This new season has a new pope (thus the title), played by John Malkovich. But Law’s pope isn’t out of the picture just yet. Watch The New Pope trailer below.

the new pope trailer

You can’t teach a new pope old tricks, and John Malkovich‘s John Paul III is certainly more of a stickler for tradition than Jude Law‘s flashy Pope Pius XIII of Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope. But thankfully, in the follow-up season of the HBO series The New Pope, this successor seems to have just as much of an ego.

“Everyone in the world should know who the pope is,” John Paul III tells his staff. “It’s not vanity; it’s necessity.” But despite enjoying the fruits of his new role, the new pope does harbor a paranoia that that mischievous young pope may wake from his coma after all. Watch The New Pope trailer.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

HBO’s trailer for The New Pope may not have you losing your religion, but it may just change your avenue of worship. I’m talking of course, about the trailer being mostly comprised of a slow-motion shot of Jude Law, dressed solely in a white Speedo, walking down a beach in front of bikini-clad girls playing volleyball. It’s heavenly. It’s bliss. It’s the next step in the meme-ification of The Young PopePaolo Sorrentino‘s wildly self-aware papal drama. The follow-up season to the acclaimed 2016 limited series, The New Pope introduces Lenny Belardo’s (Law) apparent successor, played by John Malkovich, who is much more buttoned up than his Speedo-clad predecessor. Watch The New Pope trailer below.
