FX has announced renewals for the Emmy nominated Louie and Fargo, now how’s that for awesome? Louie will return next spring with an order for seven episodes and Fargo will return for a 10-episode second season with an all-new cast, a different time period, and a new “true crime” story. Both a critical and commercial success, Fargo quickly became one of my favorite TV shows of the year and a new season with a new story sounds perfect. Noah Hawley will return to produce and write the new season.

Reminder: FX’s FARGO Series Begins Tonight

FX – TONIGHT

I’ve been waiting patiently for this day and now it’s finally here, Fargo!  It’s not the movie, it’s not a remake and it’s not the same characters.  It is produced and was partially written by Ethan and Joel Coen (the writers and directors of the feature film of the same name).  On top of all that, the same tone and dark comedy that you loved from the film is intact – you have nothing to worry about.

The limited 10 episode series begins tonight and stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Joey King, and Julie Ann Emery.

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

The FX 10-episode limited series Fargo is gearing up to be a classic if the teasers and this longer trailer below are evidence.  It’s based on the classic Coen Brothers’ film of the same name but isn’t a straight adaptation, so don’t expect the same outcome.  It’s a story in the same place and looks to share the same tone and dark humor that made the film a classic.

The series stars Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Joey King, and Julie Ann Emery.

Trailer for JFK Assassination Drama PARKLAND Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Zac Efron and Paul Giamatti

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

parkland

Below is the first trailer for the upcoming drama Parkland, which revolves around the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd 1963.

Parkland Hospital is where Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Ruby all died.  The trailer is pretty heavy on the drama; I don’t expect it will stand with Oliver Stone’s JFK, which was more of a slow boil and quite frankly one of the best movies ever made.

Parkland is produced by Tom Hanks and stars Billy Bob Thornton, Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Ron Livingston, Colin Hanks, Tom Welling, Jeremy Strong, and David Harbour.  The film will debut at the Venice Film Festival and hits theaters later this year.

Trailer for Billy Bob Thornton’s JAYNE MANSFIELD’S CAR

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Jayne-Mansfield

Here is the first trailer for Billy Bob Thornton’s first feature directing job in over a decade, Jayne Mansfield’s Car.  The film takes place in the 1960′s and revolves around a man whose wife left him and moved England.  She has died and wishes to be returned to Alabama; cue the culture clash.

Thornton wrote, directed, and starred in one of my favorite movies of all time, Sling Blade.  This looks to be a return to form with a solid cast and blend of both comedy and drama.  This will certainly be on my radar once it gets a distribution deal and release date.  The cast I referred to includes Robert Duvall (legend), John Hurt, Kevin Bacon (loving his role here), Frances O’Connor, Robert Patrick (wow he looks different), and Ray Stevenson.
