TRUE DETECTIVE Season Two Tease and Date

TRUE DETECTIVE Season Two Tease and Date

We have had plenty of casting news and a few photo stills, but HBO has now released a short Tease about TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2. It also tags at the end the premiere date for the Nick Pizzolatto series. It debuts SUNDAY, JUNE 21 and looks like the anchor for the summer season of shows on HBO. Without further delay here is that Tease:It does what a tease is supposed to do – it sets a tone. As expected the sophomore season gives us a totally new set of characters and locales, but sets up the same tone of rawness and danger. We have shadows and muted lighting (this time is a neon vibe). We have brooding moments and bursts of anger; we have...

What To Expect From Season Five of Game of Thrones

What To Expect From Season Five of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is set to premiere in a mere four days, and the long wait for Season Five is almost at an end. As the new season has drawn ever closer, we have been flooded with a flurry of trailers, interviews with actors, writers, and producers of the show, in-depth analyses of the first episode by early viewers and so much more information that sometimes it can be hard to keep it all straight. We know there’s a lot to look forward too—but with complex storylines spanning across an enormous fantastical world, it’s no wonder that it’s hard to remember all the new events, characters, and locations that we have been teased with. With...

HBO Now is Available… Now

HBO Now is Available… Now

Today is one of the most important days in HBO’s history.  For decades now, HBO has been a premium cable channel, available via a traditional subscription and access to a coaxial cable in your living room wall.  A few years back HBO launched HBO Go, a streaming app that allows you to watch HBO shows on the go.  But there was just one problem: you still needed a traditional cable package from a corporation like Comcast, Time Warner Cable or DISH Network.  Not a problem for everyone but for some, it was everything. Effective immediately, the game has changed forever.  HBO Now, the new streaming service similar to HBO Go is available...

G. R. R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

G. R. R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

George R. R. Martin is in collaboration with HBO to create a sci-fi drama work under the title of CAPTAIN COSMOS! At first I thought this a belated April Fool’s Day joke when the above bit of news came to our attention. Mr. Martin, creator of the “The Song Of Fire & Ice” series of fantasy novels, cannot even finish his current project let alone ramp up something new, so surely this wasn’t true. It wasn’t until we recalled that George was indeed in a first-look development deal with Home Box Office to create new material that it dawned on us that this could be fact. Another hint that he is carving time out to work on the new...

Movie Review: Jersey Boys

Movie Review: Jersey Boys

This movie is about the rise and fall of one of music’s famous quartets, The Four Seasons. It also showcases the backdoor hustling, deal making and schmoozing that went on in the music industry during the 1950s. You either had luck, talent or both to make it in the music scene. But like all good things, money starts to become an issue; trust amongst the group is shattered; personal and professional relationships shatter and tempers flare. Familiar faces include Christopher Walken as mob boss Angelo DeCarlo and Vincent Piazza as Tommy DeVito. Interesting to note, the movie gives four distinct perspectives on what really went down. It’s...

New Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Released

New Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Released

With all the talk of the books catching up with the TV show as the sixth book in the series falls farther and farther into the future– George RR Martin may be trying to belay some spoilers.  Yesterday, the author released an an excerpt from a chapter in  The Winds of Winter.  The chapter is from Sansa’s point of view and obviously contains some major spoilers (even for book readers!) Here’s a taste if you’re into that sort of thing:  No man can wed me so long as my dwarf husband still lives somewhere in this world. Queen Cersei had collected the head of a dozen dwarfs, Petyr claimed, but none were Tyrion’s....

More than likely this post will be updated often over the course of the year as HBO Sports tracks down the best possible team to be the star attraction in 2015’s edition of HARD KNOCKS.

The eligible teams are listed here. Two teams heard from voicing their opinion on the matter have been the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns. First, up in Orchard Park, NY we...

Entourage Movie Preview Released!

Entourage Movie Preview Released!

HBO pretty much holds the staple on developing amazing shows that stick with viewers years after their off the air. In the past decade, they’ve capitalized on this by taking famous shows and turning them into motion pictures as a way to give their audience another taste of the shows they love. The success of the Sex In The City movies (2008) was unparalleled, leading to two profitable sequels and a very happy fanbase. HBO is taking a leaf from the SATC book and making another famous show into a motion picture. The Entourage movie, a long awaited look into the crazy acting world we were all devastated to say goodbye to, will premiere on...
