HBO Special JENNIFER LOPEZ: DANCE AGAIN on New Year’s Eve

You read that correctly. HBO is slipping in an end-of-the-year special with JLo herself.

WESTWORLD Images Under the Microscope

WESTWORLD Images Under the Microscope

It started with that crazy Vine loop. Yeah it is that one with the scrambled code and the fuzzy pictures. Now we have three more images to observe regarding the exciting sci-fi series WESTWORLD coming our way in 2015. We are pulling some imagery from the HBO “Yearender” and taking a look at a photo used by Entertainment Weekly from a piece that singles out the show as one to watch in the new year. This post is not just about sharing the images in one locale, but to give a bit of analysis of what they may reveal about the series. First, here is a quick reminder of the movie’s premise as stated in an earlier post. In this story, an...

Mark Duplass Talks TOGETHERNESS

Mark Duplass Talks TOGETHERNESS

As we know Mark Duplass and his brother Jay are behind the new comedy coming to HBO on 01.11.15. They are prolific duo mostly in movies but have moved to TV fare with The League on FX and now with TOGETHERNESS. Mark himself places the lead. If you recall, it is about an extended family of sorts heading towards their 40’s and into stresses with their relationships.     Mr. Duplass was recently interviewed by IndieWire. There is more to the interview which can be read on that site, but here is what pertains to the new HBO comedy. IndieWire: Like a lot of people in the industry, you’ve moved into television. I imagine much of your support...

Movie Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Movie Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel is the latest spectacular offering from cinema’s most symmetrical director, Wes Anderson. Best known for crafting the critically acclaimed Fantastic Mr Fox and The Royal Tennenbaums, Anderson really pulls it out the bag with The Grand Budapest Hotel, with the help of a perfect cast consisting of (deep breath) Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum and Adrian Brody. If you could direct dreams, I would want Wes Anderson directing mine and filling them with an inspirational cast because The Grand Budapest Hotel...

Another Glimpse at LOOKING Season Two

Another Glimpse at LOOKING Season Two

HBOWatch has given fans a good solid post and trailer for Season Two of LOOKING. We are able now to follow up with some more video and a few quotes not yet seen on the site. We start with a quick quote from executive producer Andrew Haigh about how we get into the sophomore season. He says – “All of them have been in flux since the end of the last season, and they’ve all been doing their own thing a little bit. This first episode is them being determined to spend more time together and go away to Russian River, which is, like, two hours outside San Francisco. It’s this really beautiful, tranquil place along the redwoods.” They...

ENTOURAGE: THE MOVIE Trailer & Premiere Date

ENTOURAGE: THE MOVIE Trailer & Premiere Date

Way back on 07.08.11 HBOWatch started the first buzz about an ENTOURAGE movie. Then there was nothing until Jeremy Piven spoke up in a post dated 12.02.11. It wasn’t until 01.29.13 that we got some solid news that Warner Bros. actually gave the movie the green light. If you can detect the pattern months at a time go by before any major news surfaces. The movie seemed to be off and on so many times. We reported on 10.28.13 that it was finally a sure bet. Now we got a premiere date of 06.05.15 and an awesome trailer. Wait until you see this! The boys are back in town! Vincent, E, Johnny Drama and a slimmed down Turtle are still living...

Linsons of “Sons of Anarchy” to Develop Vietnam War Concept for HBO

Linsons of “Sons of Anarchy” to Develop Vietnam War Concept for HBO

Art and John Linson, the executive producers behind Sons of Anarchy, have secured rights to a book that will flesh out to be a drama series on the Vietnam War era. The work obtained is a Pulitzer Prize winning book entitled “The Long Gray Line: The American Journey of West Point’s Class of 1966” by Rick Atkinson. Publisher’s Weekly said of the tome – “Since its founding by Thomas Jefferson in 1802, the United States Military Academy, “fortress of virtue, preserve of the nation’s values,” has exerted a powerful and lasting influence on its graduates. As revealed in this Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter’s...

The game’s the same, it just got more fierce

The game’s the same, it just got more fierce

Finally, The Wire will re-air in HD December 26th http://hbowatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/the-wire-intro.mp4 I have never been to Baltimore, but I still find myself obsessed with the city. Two things recently rekindled this love. One being the immersive podcast Serial, which detailed the murder of a Baltimore high school student and mysteriously disorganized trial that followed. The other was the announcement that The Wire was being remastered and reaired in HD. Obsessive attention to detail and realism Through annual The Wire viewings and the continual pressure I place on everyone I know to spend the time immersing themselves in...

Two Sarahs, Parker & Silverman, Preparing HBO Pilots!

Two Sarahs, Parker & Silverman, Preparing HBO Pilots!

You recognized the lady above, right? That is Sarah Jessica Parker who, of course, personified Carrie Bradshaw on SEX AND THE CITY on HBO for six seasons between 1998 and 2004. Well, now she hopes for another half-hour comedy on the network. Yeah, you are reading that right. She is to star and executive produce DIVORCE. It is said to be a comedic take of a very, very, long divorce and evidently whomever SJP plays it will surely be the female lead in the marriage gone bad. The concept is just being written as a pilot right now. It is being penned by British writer and actress Sharon Horgan and even though no director is mentioned it is...

HBO’s “Yearender” Trailer Provides First Glimpse at Several New 2015 Series

HBO’s “Yearender” Trailer Provides First Glimpse at Several New 2015 Series

HBO sure knows how to make a trailer. Last year’s “yearender” trailer was just how it sounds: a trailer at the end of the year that wraps up a calendar full of great programming and previews the coming year’s attractions.  HBO saw several series give their final curtain call first with True Blood, then Boardwalk Empire and more recently The Newsrooms saying goodbye forever. But while all may be quiet on HBO right now for the Holidays, 2015 brings with it more new shows than ever before. We know it’s hard to believe but for each of the aforementioned closing series HBO has another lined up that promises similar...

HBO Boxing’s Best of 2014

HBO Boxing’s Best of 2014

Next week HBO will be serving up a series of its top fights of the year for several nights in a row starting Saturday December 27th through Tuesday December 30th.  They can also be seen anytime On Demand and on HBOGO. Saturday December 27th Golovkin vs Geale and Golovkin vs Rubio (11:30 pm) These two fights were the best opponents the fearsome fighter from Kazakhstan could get in the ring this year.  Geale was a quality fighter from England who gave his best in a high action, violent brawl. Rubio on the other hand came into the fight for a payday and nothing more in this farce of a fight. Golovkin stayed the course on his way up the pound...

David Fincher Planning Three Shows for HBO!

David Fincher Planning Three Shows for HBO!

Many around here have been excited about the notion of David Fincher (pictured right) working with HBO. It started back on 09.09.13 when HBOWatch first posted that Fincher wanted to bring the U. K series UTOPIA to HBO’s audience. Then on 09.09.14 (how about the coincidence) we reported that Fincher was teaming up with famed crime fiction writer James Ellroy(also pictured at lower left) on a potential project. Of the two concepts only additional mention of UTOPIA surfaced again. On 09.20.14 we announced that Fincher would be directing the entire first season of UTOPIA himself if the work was to be picked up. We are still waiting on...

Movie Review: Divergent

Movie Review: Divergent

I’m a huge fan of dystopian literature, especially young adult novels. Having enjoyed the books, I was thrilled to hear Divergent was being adapted.   Based in a post-apocalyptic Chicago, the society remaining has created a faction system.  When parents have children, they are raised in their parents’ faction until they turn 16 at which point they take an aptitude test to determine in which faction they truly belong.  The factions are Abnegation (the selfless), Erudite (the intelligent), Amity (the peaceful), Candor (the honest), and Dauntless (the brave).  If you cannot pick a faction or fail out of your choice, you become...
