When You, based on the Caroline Kepnes novel of the same name, premiered on Lifetime back in 2018, the drama about romantic obsession turned sinister, barely made an impression before the network unceremoniously canceled it. But then it got dropped on Netflix, where it became an overnight sensation. Now Penn Badgley returns as Joe Goldberg in season 2 of You, with a new identity and a new hunting ground — and presumably new victims to add to his body count. Watch the You season 2 trailer below.

Michael Almereyda is the latest to tweak William Shakespeare’s work to suit his purposes. Almereyda’s Cymbeline sees him teaming one more with Ethan Hawke, who starred in the director’s Hamlet in 2000. Cymbeline envisions the original text as “an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled America.” Ed Harris also stars, along with Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson and Anton Yelchin.

The first trailer we saw for Greetings From Tim Buckley, in which Penn Badgley acts and sings as the late musician Jeff Buckley, came in the wake of the film’s TIFF premiere, and has since gone offline. Good thing there’s now an official US trailer for you to check out.
Here, again, you can see Badgley’s solid take on the role, as he seeks to capture the point in Buckley’s life when he takes part in a benefit concert honoring his late father, Tim Buckley. Imogen Poots appears as the young woman who works for the organization putting on the benefit, and to whom Jeff Buckley has a strong attraction. This looks like a very similar trailer, but if you missed that first look last year, this is a good opportunity to give it a glance before the film hits digital platforms in a couple weeks.

Jeff Buckley, whose sole album Grace made him a cult favorite singer/songwriter, is not a figure many actors would be eager to play. Blessed with a distinctive voice and followed by a rabid fan base, Buckley, is often seen as a singular figure in the music world. But Penn Badgley accepted the challenge of playing (and singing as) Buckley for director Daniel Algrant in the film Greetings From Tim Buckley. The film follows Jeff as he is invited to perform at a 1991 benefit concert for his late father, Tim Buckley. The younger Buckley only barely knew the elder, who died of an overdose in 1975, and the concert represented his own eulogy to his father and also his breakthrough into the music industry.
There’s a lot in this trailer: scenes with Tim Buckley (played by Ben Rosenfield), and bits where Jeff is coming to terms with his father and playing the show, and then a great deal of time where he’s minimizing the import of the show by fooling around with a cute girl (Imogen Poots) who is staffing the concert. I don’t know how well those elements work together in the film, but most of them are appealing enough in the trailer, which you can see below. Read More »

Gossip Girl actor Penn Badgley has been tapped to star as Jeff Buckley in a new biopic about the singer-songwriter. No, not that one — the other one. In true Hollywood fashion, there are currently two Buckley-based projects in the works: the one Jake Scott’s making with Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert as executive producer, and this one, directed by Daniel Algrant (Naked in New York). Scott’s film will be look at Buckley’s (tragically brief) life and career arc, whereas Algrant’s will focus on Buckley’s breakthrough performance at a 1991 tribute concert for his father, the late Tim Buckley. According to The Playlist, Algrant’s will also include a romance between Buckley and a working at the concert.
I really only know Badgley from Easy A and the handful of Gossip Girl episodes I’ve seen, and I can’t say he’s ever left a strong impression on me. (Well — I hated his Gossip Girl character, but that’s probably less his fault than the writers’.) So I can’t say whether this will be a good thing or a bad thing. Either way, there’s a chance he’ll be going up against fellow teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson, who’s still rumored to be circling the corresponding role in Scott’s movie. [24 Frames]

At the end of this first weekend of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival there have been two major buys. One was made by Paramount for Like Crazy, one of the most-praised films at the fest so far. (Look for our review tomorrow morning.) And on the other side of the spectrum, LionsGate and Roadside Attractions have teamed up to buy J.C. Chandor‘s debut feature Margin Call, which has garnered some of the poorer reviews of the fest. Read More »
