HBO Confirms The Leftovers Season 2 Premiere Date

HBO Confirms The Leftovers Season 2 Premiere Date

Are you still hungry for another helping of leftovers? HBO is looking to serve up a freshly rebooted series to you on October 4th, 2015. Will we find out what The Departure really was this season? Almost certainly not but we can hope to get a few clues that, at the very least make us stop and think. HBOs fall schedule is looking a bit depressed at the moment. While there are a pair of mini-series and a few other smaller series, The Leftovers is actually the “biggest” launch we’ll see until 2016 after True Detective stops airing in two weeks. This is a departure from fall of 2014 where we still had The Newsroom and...

What’s On: HBO Schedule for August 2015

Man, time sure flies. Here we are almost through summer and I haven’t even gone on my week-long vacation yet. The beach is calling, but so is what is on HBO in August.

I hope everyone is eagerly anticipating what will appear soon starting with the big movies and specials coming up in August 2015.

True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

This season of True Detective has been unjustly maligned by many critics who have decided to ignore great performances, and the nearly identical tone to the beloved first season. Episodes like “Church In Ruins” go far in proving these criticisms as moot points. This episode is full of tension from the opening scene to the finale. “I have a sense of justice” Starting from where we left last episode we immediately go full tilt into the confrontation between Velcoro and Semyon. This scene is full of tension so rich it would make Alfred Hitchcock squeal in glee. The fact that both characters are seemingly having a normal...

Cast Changes Announced at WESTWORLD

Cast Changes  Announced at WESTWORLD

Now don’t fret because Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton are all still in the highly anticipated WESTWORLD series. Miranda Otto and Eion Bailey, on the other hand, are out. Come on, if we are going to get WESTWORLD out by 1Q of 2016  let’s get moving here. Here are the details. Miranda Otto has been replaced by one Sidse Babbitt Knudsen (pictured) playing the role of Westworld’s head of operations named Theresa Cullen. Is that to say everything goes haywire under her watch? Uh-oh.  Replacing Bailey is Ben Barnes who will take up the role of Logan. That character is a...

EXCLUSIVE: Ramsay Snow Funko Pop Figure Coming in October

If you’ve ever wanted an effigy of a ruthlessly sadistic psychopath to proudly display on your living room book shelf, then you’re in luck! Fans of the one and only Ramsay Bolton (née Snow) will have the opportunity to take home a round eyed, square headed, adorable vinyl version of their favorite flayer.

Good news for already established collectors of Funko Pop’s Game of...

Movie Review: The Drop

Movie Review: The Drop

Warning: This review contains some spoilers. Michaël R. Roskam’s 2014 film The Drop features talent that is familiar to HBO viewers: Dennis Lehane (writer: The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), Ann Dowd (True Detective, Olive Kitteridge), and most notably, the late James Gandolfini in his final film role. Adapted by Lehane from his own short story “Animal Rescue,” The Drop stars Tom Hardy as Bob, a soft-spoken man who lives in a rough Brooklyn neighborhood. Tom works as a bartender at Marv’s, and has little in common with the rowdy regulars who patronize the establishment. Bob also has little in common with Marv himself...

Is Jon Snow Coming Back? Kit Harington’s Whereabouts May Offer Clues

Is Jon Snow Coming Back? Kit Harington’s Whereabouts May Offer Clues

WARNING: Major Game of Thrones spoilers below. Ever since Game of Thrones‘ latest season ended with the supposed death of fan-favorite Jon Snow, many have been in debate as to whether the character is truly dead or not. While some argue that no one can survive multiple stabbings to the vital organs, surprisingly, most fans are of the opinion that Jon’s story isn’t over. The internet abounds with fan theories about how Jon Snow will survive his attack, or even be resurrected from death, but while some shrug them off as merely the fantasies of heart-sick viewers who cannot accept their favorite character’s  death,...

Scorsese’s ROCK-N-ROLL PROJECT Gives us Red Hot Olivia Wilde!

Scorsese’s ROCK-N-ROLL PROJECT Gives us Red Hot Olivia Wilde!

HBOWatch stumbled upon the pictures offered up from the set of the Martin Scorsese music series and would be remiss not to tell fans about them. After all we have not posted any word about this project yet this year, believe it or not. So, this post is mostly graphics of the players and the crew shooting the series in New York City this summer. Here is the steamy couple of Richie and Devon Finestra played by Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde. Don’t forget that it is the 1970’s and the heart of the music scene; that is what the show is all about. Richie Finestra is the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century...

HBO’s THE BRINK Gets Renewed For Season Two

HBO’s THE BRINK Gets Renewed For Season Two

Doomsday has been postponed! No one is going to push the Big Red Button just yet since THE BRINK gets to hold the calamity at bay for another season as HBO announces a sophomore season for the show.  So, the Benibib Brothers, Roberto and Kim, have got to find more ways for Secretary of State Walter Larson (Tim Robbins) and Foreign Service Officer Alex Talbot (Jack Black) to save the day. In the political satire, if you haven’t been watching the 10-part premiere season, we find a volatile situation in Pakistan. Nuclear armament could be the result if Secretary of State Larson can’t talk hawkish President Navarro, (Esai Morales) and the...

HBO Documentary Films: PACKED IN A TRUNK: THE LOST ART OF EDITH LAKE WILKINSON

HBO Documentary Films: PACKED IN A TRUNK: THE LOST ART OF EDITH LAKE WILKINSON

Overview: Jane Anderson has a story about her great-aunt, Edith Lake Wilkinson. One day in the mid-1960s, Jane’s mother suggested to her sister-in-law that they go up into the attic, where they discovered hundreds of Edith’s paintings packed into trunks. Jane’s mother brought the paintings back to California, and Jane grew up surrounded by Edith’s work. Back in 1924, Edith had been committed to an asylum at the age of 57, and Jane has spent much of her adult life trying to figure out how she got there. Piecing together fragments of information, Jane knows that Edith left her family home in 1888 to study art in New York. She met a...

True Detective: “Other Lives”

True Detective: “Other Lives”

After last week’s explosive episode, True Detective finally felt like it had hit the ground running—particularly after having spent half the season on character development and veiled clues. Ray, Ani, and Paul finally had a breakthrough in the investigation, leading to the pulse-pounding raid and shootout with Ledo Amarilla and his men. However, the dust didn’t settle quite as expected. Rather than picking up where it left off, “Other Lives” continues exactly 66 days after what has now been deemed “The Vinci Massacre.” Caspere’s murder case has been officially closed since the man believed to be responsible, Amarilla, is now...

Game of Thrones: The Best (or Worst) Moments of Season 5

Game of Thrones: The Best (or Worst) Moments of Season 5

I think there’s quite a few of of us out there still recovering from the fifth season of Game of Thrones. This post will be littered with spoilers so please be aware if you’re going to continue on. In one of our famous collaboration pieces, the writers of HBOWatch have gotten together to discuss the best (or worst, depending on your point of view) moments this season brought to us. The Doom of Valyria by Alexandra Mitchell: Valyria. It’s the mythical, magical place we’ve heard bits and pieces about since the beginning of the show. Valyrian steel can defeat white walkers. Dany speaks Old Valyrian, as House Targaryen is seated...

In Production- HBO Films: CONFIRMATION

In Production- HBO Films: CONFIRMATION

Back in March we mentioned that HBO Films: CONFIRMATION had signed on Kerry Washington of ABC’s Scandal to star. The movie, about the Clarence Thomas hearings, will see her as Anita Hill. That case offered America its first look at the issues of sexual harassment in the workplace which all boiled to the surface when Thomas was out to grab a seat as a Supreme Court judge. Joining Washington in the upcoming film is a who’s who of talents taking on the players in this big-arena story. We start off with the key role on the other side of the table. Playing Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas will be Wendell Pierce. Yes, that Wendell Pierce,...

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

If you’re one who thinks that the sudden free-for-all of young adult novels being turned into movies is a scourge on theaters I doubt this review is going to change your mind. The Maze Runner, as it stands, follows all the same tropes that make these films so scrutinized. Yet it also does just enough differently, and has enough pretty visuals, to make itself stand out from the pack and be worth watching, at least until the third act. But we’ll get to that part later. A young man wakes up in a freight elevator with no memory of who he is or where he’s being taken. He finds himself in a large green field, the Glade,...
