UPDATED: HBO Releases Another Game of Thrones Season 3 Trailer

UPDATED: HBO Releases Another Game of Thrones Season 3 Trailer

UPDATE 3/21: UPDATE:  And another: I guess good things come in threes cause we now have the third trailer for Season Three hitting the airwaves tonight before the Season Finale of Girls. The first two trailers, “War” and “Beast”, were released on Friday and we now have a third to add to the collection. Not quite sure why HBO decided to release all these trailers at once. Especially so close to the premiere. I’ve actually seen a few of these sprinkled in throughout regular TV commercials, but still seems like they have been a bit lagging on the trailer releases for this season. Oh well, who cares when it...

On All Fours: Did We Witness a Rape on Sunday’s Episode of Girls?

On All Fours: Did We Witness a Rape on Sunday’s Episode of Girls?

I think that HBO’s Girls is my favorite show. This is a big shocker to me, personally, as after watching the first episode, I really truly hated it. It was incredibly uncomfortable, but strangely fascinating, and like a car crash, I couldn’t bring myself to look away. As we approach the end of the second season, I find myself already mourning the loss of my Sunday nights with Hannah and company. In his March 12 recap of Girls Season 2, episode 9, Jacob Klein posed an interesting question to our readers. “Did Adam rape Natalia?” This is a question that my mind has been wandering back to revisit, even days later. After...

TWO New Game of Thrones Season 3 Spots

TWO New Game of Thrones Season 3 Spots

UPDATE I: HBO snuck another season 3 promo online tonight!  This one’s called: “The Beast”! HBO snuck another Game of Thrones trailer online tonight.  This shorter spot will most likely air with the season finale of Girls on Sunday night.  It also looks like one that could easily play on other networks as we get closer to the premiere on March 31st.  Here’s the spot: Alright so a little bit of new stuff in there. Can any book readers guess what some of the new scenes are? Here’s our favorite shot: UPDATE: And one...

Development Slate: Cate Blanchett To HBO and More

Development Slate: Cate Blanchett To HBO and More

It amazes me just how much news I can gather about HBO development options. Every week there is always some bit of news about deals & talks happening, pilots being commissioned and casting being done. It can get quite interesting and confusing keeping straight which projects get the fast track to series or just a pilot order and, of course, which ones get passed over. But, this diligent writer for HBOWatch keeps at it: here is the latest news. Cate Blanchett is Attached  to CANCER VIXEN Cate Blanchett, the actress behind such characters as Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films as well as Queen Elizabeth I and an...

True Blood Season 5 Arrives on DVD & Blu-Ray May 21

It’s the moment many Trubies have been waiting for.  True Blood Season 5 is arriving on DVD soon!  The May 21st date gives us a bit of insight into a possible True Blood Season 6 premiere date.  HBO times DVDs and Blu-Ray releases about 4-6 weeks before a new season premiere.  So this more or less confirms most people’s suspicions that the new season will premiere sometime in late spring / early summer.  Here are the details straight from HBO: A vampire civil war is brewing, Sookie’s best friend is dead and an old vampire foe has returned to wreak havoc on the human race. True Blood continues to be one of...

David Mamet on Making HBO Films: PHIL SPECTOR

David Mamet on Making HBO Films: PHIL SPECTOR

HBO Films: PHIL SPECTOR hits the channel on 03.24. To promote that movie HBO released a clip featuring the movie’s writer and director David Mamet. It is not often that an original film gets a behind-the-scenes featurette as they are usually reserved for the big series the channel airs. But here the ulta-insightful Mr. Mamet sets up the movie quite nicely as he almost over analyzes what the themes of PHIL SPECTOR is about. I’ll let him speak for himself. Here it is: HBOWatch will review HBOFilms: PHIL SPECTOR shortly after its premiere on 03.24 at 9:oopm E.T. Are you ready for the off-beat & wild ride into the mind of Phil...

Silicon Valley: Mike Judge’s HBO Comedy Series Begins Filming

Silicon Valley: Mike Judge’s HBO Comedy Series Begins Filming

Mike Judge, probably most famous for his creation of the animated series’ Bevis and Butthead and King of the Kill is heading to HBO. But his new series, Silicon Valley, is more in line with another of judge’s beloved projects: Office Space. We can confirm that Josh Brener (Glory Daze) and Lindsey Broad (The Office) have already been cast alongside Actor-comedians T.J. Miller (Yogi Bear) and Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign). Not huge names but some fresh faces may be just what this new series needs. Silicon Valley is set in the high tech gold rush of modern San Fransisco (“The Greater Bay Area”), where the people...

HBO FIlms: MARY AND MARTHA Premiere Date via a Tease

HBO FIlms: MARY AND MARTHA Premiere Date via a Tease

If you recall both HBO’s Winter Promo and the 2012 Yearender clip they showed us that HBO FILMS: MARY AND MARTHA was coming in the near future. Well, now a date has been announced via the Tease below. What you will see is two different landscapes; they must be North Carolina followed by Africa as these are the main locales in the movie. Take in the little tease and find more information about the HBO Film afterwards. That’s why they call it a Tease; not showing much but hopefully raising interest. Now, how about a bit about the plot, you ask? Well, I’ll  combine a post  I wrote back on 07.23.13 with a synopsis from HBO to give a...

Overview: This overview is straight from HBO’s press release: In a longtime ritual, retirees from the Northeast have fled the cold for life in Florida, seeking better weather and a less-stressful lifestyle.

Marnie Covers Kanye West on Captivating Episode of Girls

Marnie Covers Kanye West on Captivating Episode of Girls

This Sunday HBO’s girls went there.  Whether you thought the episode was Dark, Graphic or even ‘Boundry Crossing‘ you’ll more than likely never forget some of the moments that Lena Dunham served up this week.  Some are even questioning the writer’s taste at this point (re: the three links above). But darkness issues aside we wanted to highlight Marnie’s cover of the Kanye West single “Stronger”.  Some of you may love the character while others may hate her at the moment but we thought this cover was worth another listen so here it is: We’re also interested in your thoughts on the...
