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

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...

Game of Thrones Season 3 Recap Show Now Live

The long and windy winds of winter are finally abating.  It’s been almost a complete year since Game of Thrones was last on the air.  That’s a long time for Sers and Ladies to keep the house mottos and banner colors straight.  But HBO understands this and usually gives us a re-cap video for the prior season.  Game of Thrones Season 3 is no different. Here’s a recap of all the big events that went down in Season Two: If you’re on a mobile device and having trouble viewing the above video, try this one…   I think that just about covers it. It’s never a bad day when you get to hear interviews from...

We’ve mentioned Lombardozzi,  Livingston &  Geraghty here and we now add to that list Jeffrey Wright. In Season Four Jeffrey Wright will play the role of Valentin Narcisse, Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist, student of culture and the man who runs Harlem.

He played Martin Luther King Jr. in the 2001 HBO Film BOYCOTT and recreated his stage role...

Quix Pix – BEHIND THE CANDELABRA in EW

Quix Pix – BEHIND THE CANDELABRA in EW

Gracing the cover of the next Entertainment Weekly  (on newsstands 03.08) is Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in character for HBO Films: BEHIND THE CANDELABRA. Since it is a cover shot there must be a featured article contained within the pages. It could possibly talk about an on-set visit to the film or at least offer some quotes from the actors and/or director Soderbergh about the uncomfortable portrayals the actors put themselves in to get this story told. Here is the glittery shot and EW’s coverage. HBO Films: BEHIND THE CANDELABRA premieres...

Houses of Westeros: The Riverlands, The Vale, & The Iron Islands

Houses of Westeros: The Riverlands, The Vale, & The Iron Islands

Welcome to the second installment of this multi-part series documenting the important houses from HBO’s Game of Thrones. If you have read the first part, “Houses of Westeros: The North”, you will already be familiar with my format and style. However, if you are new here, I will outline a few things before I begin. These articles are aimed at fans of the HBO show (hence them being published on this site) who have seen, and are familiar, with the first two seasons. While I do draw a lot of information from A Song of Ice and Fire, I only draw so much as to add more flavor to the houses as they are portrayed in the show. I include no...

CARNIVALE Comes to HBOGO!

CARNIVALE Comes to HBOGO!

UPDATE:  It appears that the episode will be available on March 27th!  Here’s the proof: As I was doing my routine digging around for HBO information to pass on to you I stumbled upon the following: CARNIVALE, the 2003-2005 dramatic series, is coming to HBO’s streaming service soon. My facts come from HBO itself which states that “Coming Soon” to HBOGO are all twenty-four episodes of the craftily created dark fantasy series from creator Daniel Knauf. This show is so rich with its mythology and religious themes, its historical settings and its freak show weirdness that it is hard to describe. It is more than just a battle of...

We Attend Paleyfest 2013 with Piers Morgan & Cast of The Newsroom

The 30th anniversary of the Paleyfest held by the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles kicked off Friday, March 1st. Paleyfest is an annual event held for two weeks, and it brings a lot of the actors and producers of some of television’s biggest shows to a live audience. The audience usually get treated with new, yet to be seen episodes or clips, and a live interaction with their favorite stars. I had the honor of attending three of the shows at Paleyfest; Walking Dead, Arrow and The Newsroom. I have been to past Paleyfest events and have become very fond of this organization. I have come to the conclusion that The Newsroom panel was...
