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.

exclusive bombshell clip

Bombshell wasn’t quite as explosive as its makers would’ve hoped, landing in theaters in December not with a bang but with more of a quiet poof of air.

But as the Jay Roach-directed dramedy gets ready for its home video release, Theron and co-star Nicole Kidman are speaking up in a behind-the-scenes featurette about the importance of telling stories of sexual harassment.

The Expatriates TV Series

Writer and director Lulu Wang made a huge splash this year with the Sundance selected indie sensation The Farewell. Though Wang herself didn’t score a nomination for directing from either the Indie Spirit Awards or Golden Globes, the film did, and it’s a fantastic showcase of her talents both on the page and behind the camera. Now she’ll get to flex those skills again with what will presumably be a bigger budget project in the form of an Amazon drama series called The Expatriates. Read More »

the northman

The Witch and The Lighthouse director Robert Eggers is already gearing up for his next project. Eggers will helm The Northman, a Viking drama that will star Alexander Skarsgard, with Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgard, and Willem Dafoe all in talks to join the cast. The movie is described as a “grounded” revenge story, which means it probably won’t have the supernatural elements prevalent in Eggers’ first two films – but will still end up being disturbing, since that seems to be what Eggers gravitates towards.
