Leave it to the Duplass Brothers, Mark and Jay, to take a seemingly simple concept—talking animals in New York City—and shape it into something that’s worthy of HBO. The show is called Animals, it premieres February 5, and the twisted trailer is here.
News broke over the weekend that the highly anticipated HBO sci-fi series Westworld has shut down production. And while that’s true and sounds like incredibly bad news, it’s actually the opposite.
Last year, a deal was announced that brought the public broadcasting legend Sesame Street to the premium cable network HBO. And now, thanks to The New York Times, we know a bunch of details about the revamped show. How you feel is going to depend a lot on how you feel about change. And yuppies.
When we first met Game of Thrones’ Bran Stark, he was a tower-climbing scamp who had a most unfortunate encounter with Jaime Lannister. As Entertainment Weekly, which unveiled this photo, points out, actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright is now 16 years old and nearly six feet tall.
Sesame Street is moving to HBO for the next few seasons starting in January and the first trailer is now out. And it’s basically delightful.
In the last season of Game of Thrones, there was some pretty horrific moments depicting rape, which has added on a level of scrutiny to the HBO show and its depiction of sexual assault. Now, it looks like showrunners are reacting to the criticism for the upcoming season.
Great news for anyone (myself included) who enjoyed the hell out of The Leftovers’ innovative and consistently surprising second season, which just wrapped up on Sunday: it’s been renewed for a third and final season.
In HBO’s year-end “Look how awesome we were in 2015, we’ll also be awesome in 2016,” there are about four seconds of footage from season six of Game of Thrones. You can either skip to 2:15 in the video above, or see it in gif form below. Your choice.
Okay, so, if you’re worried about spoilers, this first teaser for the next season of Game of Thrones doesn’t actually have any new footage in it—but it’s got one hell of an awesomely portentous bit of dialogue over it that has some spoilery connotations. So consider this your warning!
When last we saw Kevin Garvey, he was twitching in poison-induced death spasms, shortly before Virgil, the man who pledged to revive him, shot himself in the head. But Virgil’s grandson, Michael, appeared to assist—and this week, Michael’s only line of dialogue sums up the episode rather well: “Holy shit.”
This is a spoiler alert. So is this. And this. This makes four spoiler alerts. Seriously, by clicking on this article, you acknowledge that you understand the risks herein, okay? No one is allowed to complain about being spoiled.
We loved True Detective season one. We wanted to like season two, but creator Nic Pizzolatto had trouble keeping the anthology series’ magic alive in a new setting with new characters. There might be chance for redemption, now that Pizzolatto has signed a new HBO deal—but TD3 isn’t a sure thing yet.
True Blood bit its last throat in 2014, but NBC is hoping it can duplicate HBO’s mega-success by adapting another fantasy series from works by author Charlaine Harris, called Midnight, Texas. It’s based on Harris’ trilogy about a small town filled with spooky secrets.
We still don’t know where all the departed people went, and that includes the newly-missing Evie Murphy and friends. And what’s more, “A Matter of Geography” introduces some new mysteries into The Leftovers’ roiling pot of WTF ... most of them revolving around Kevin Garvey.
It’s a whole new Leftovers, y’all—in the intriguing season two opener, “Axis Mundi,” we’ve left the dark insanity of Mapleton, New York for Miracle, Texas, a town that’s been re-named as such because none of its residents were raptured on that fateful October 14.
Watchmen is one of those comic books people hold incredibly near and dear to their hearts. It’s difficult, it’s dark, and it’s been incredibly influential on everything that followed. Which is why, no matter how he tackled it, Zack Snyder’s movie had its back against a wall.
HBO has received a lot of criticism for the insane sexual violence in Game of Thrones, especially the latest season. But the network seems determined to keep pushing the porn-envelope further, judging by a casting call that makes its new series Westworld look like porn with human furniture. The network is backpedaling…
Whenever a familiar name pops up as being new to the Game of Thrones cast, it’s a shock. Mostly because we’d thought they’d run out of British actors we could easily identify a long time ago. This week: Richard E. Grant.
HBO and Sesame Street just announced a surprise deal that will put America’s most famous children’s TV program on the same network as Game of Thrones.
