Big Little Lies: A New HBO Series with Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon

Does it seem like bigger and bigger stars are coming to HBO these days? You’ve got two star-studded seasons of True Detective on record, and stars like Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris all seem to be okay with doing television as well. Here are two more names for you: Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.  Both award winning actresses, both now committed to HBO for a limited series called “Big Little Lies”. The show will be based on a book of the same name.  Here’s how Amazon describes it: Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . . A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . ....

Westworld to Film in July; Late 2015 Premiere?

Westworld to Film in July; Late 2015 Premiere?

Ever since HBO gave us that Westworld tease last year we’ve been keeping a close eye on the production schedule. The pilot was shot in 2014 but the series itself has still yet to be filmed.  In an interview last week with Simon Quarterman, an actor who plays a character named Lee Sizemore on HBO’s Westworld, Simon says that they won’t begin filming until July: Just now, things are really beginning to take off. I start shooting Westworld for HBO in July. We shot the pilot last year and we got picked up so I’m very excited about that. I think everyone’s in for a real treat with that.

DVD & Blu-Ray Review – Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Series

When The Sopranos went off the air many never thought we’d see another gangster movie quite like it in their lifetime. And while The Sopranos is a unique and special show, Boardwalk Empire almost fills that void in many of our living rooms.  Gangster drama in the 1920’s? Who could resist. When the fifth season went dark last year an era of gangster TV ended with it. But on May 15th, 2015 you’ll be able to at least relive all of Boardwalk Empire on DVD and Blu-Ray!  Order your copy now before they pass prohibition. Packaging This is a sharp looking box-set! Each of the disc boxes (of which there are five) has the season...

Trio of True Detective Season 2 Posters Tease The Show We Deserve

You’re probably still humming that haunting song from the True Detective Season 2 trailer that aired a few weeks ago, an original composed exclusively for HBO’s new show.  But you want more, right? Well, we expect a second TD2 trailer to drop in the coming weeks but until then HBO has three promotional posters for you. But these aren’t just any posters!  They’re mini-videos.  Gifs, if you will.  Here’s the first one: We get the world we deserve. #TrueDetective pic.twitter.com/joLQ4R5b1H — True Detective (@TrueDetective) April 22, 2015 Sounds like Rustin Chole, to me.  Maybe we won’t miss him...

Reminder: HBO Now’s Apple Exclusivity is Temporary

Reminder: HBO Now’s Apple Exclusivity is Temporary

There’s been some confusion around the launch of HBO Now, HBO’s first ever stand-alone streaming service. And who can blame people for being confused? Between HBO Go and HBO Now it’s tough to know the differences.  Top that off with the fact that HBO limited the release to Apple devices only at launch and you’ve got a very complicated situation for non-technical people to try and wrap their heads around. So we wanted to at least dispel one of the more sinister rumors– that HBO Now will always require an Apple device.  Here’s a clip from HBO Now’s official FAQ page: So you’ll need an iOS...
