Here’s the latest trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming action flick The Last Stand. Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzmán, Peter Stormare, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander and Genesis Rodriguez are also in the movie. The movie, directed by South Korea’s Kim Jee-woon, opens January 18th.
Here’s the trailer. It’s about what you expect, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Looks like HBO is doing some house cleaning before the new year as the network has decided to cancel several of its shows and give at least one another chance. That’s right, if you’re a fan of Hung, How to Make It in America or Bored to Death, you’re probably not going to like what I’m about to tell you: HBO has canceled all three of those shows.
The network has decided to give the Laura Dern comedy Enlightened at least one more season, however. So, if you’re a fan of that show, at least the day isn’t a total loss for you.
Of the three getting the axe today, I’m particularly sad to see Bored to Death go. I really liked it and its quirky blend of humor and drama. Plus, the three leads: Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis really worked well together. Bummer.
I’m also a bit disappointed to see How to Make It In America go as well, mostly because it had the awesome Luis Guzman and the fetching Lake Bell in it. Plus, I was really interested in finding out, you know, how to make it in America. Now I’ll never know.
I gave the Enlightened pilot a chance, but it din’t grab me. Oh well, kudos to Mike White and star Laura Dern. You’ve got another season to make it sing. Break a leg.
In case you haven’t noticed, HBO has some pretty great shows. Some you’ve probably heard of, like The Sopranos, Game of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire, and maybe one or two you haven’t. One you may not be as familiar with is How to Make it In America.
The show, which takes place in New York and chronicles the exploits of several twenty and thirty-somethings trying to find their way and, well, make it, has a nice blend of humor, drama and some very engaging and charming characters. Plus, it’s well done and really fun to watch.
That’s probably why HBO has given it another season. To help get you ready for season two or to let you see a how that you should be checking out, we’ve got the new trailer and poster for season two for you today.
In them, you get a look at the cast, what they are trying to do and how they are trying to do it. Plus, the poster is pretty cool and helps evoke the “artsy” vibe of the show.
Oh, one more thing, the show also features the great Luis Guzman. That’s all I really needed to start watching it in the first place. That’s all you should need to know too.
Check out the trailer after the jump. How to Make it In America, which also stars Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rusak, Lake Bell, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Shannyn Sossamon, premieres Sunday, October 2 at 10:30PM on HBO.
Something has been lost in translation in this ill-advised and disappointing remake of Arthur (1984). The original featured the late comedic talent Dudley Moore, and was nominated for four Academy Awards. It’s a pretty safe assumption that this film won’t be picking up any trophies come awards season.
Russell Brand plays Arthur, a perpetually drunk playboy suffering from a chronic case of arrested development. He lives in a fabulous highrise building in New York, and surrounds himself with gadgets, toys, and booze.
His sole companion is his live-in nanny Hobson, played by Helen Mirren. Hobson has played the role of surrogate mom since Arthur’s birth. She accepts Arthur unconditionally, and serves as his confidante, nursemaid, and cook. Arthur also pals around with his driver Bitterman (Luis Guzman) on any given night.
The first night we see the two step out on the town, they are dressed as Batman and Robin, and Bitterman drives a Batmobile through the streets. Naturally, they get arrested, which seems to be a common occurrence for the two.
Mere moments later, Arthur has posted bail for everyone in the slammer, and all is good in the world. Arthur lives the life of unfettered hedonism, with no obvious consequences to any of his actions. It’s the life of Riley.
