 Next Month’s Tease: For December your clue is – this 2015 movie takes place right after the events depicted in Peter Weir’s acclaimed 1981 film.

November’s answer was U2 iNNOCENCE + ePERIENCE LIVE FROM PARIS as the mentioned names of Mullen Jr. & Clayton join Bono & The Edge in concert. I’m looking forward to that, are U 2?


Final Clip: No movie clip this month ‘cause I’m sticking with some U2. Here is a tease and the end of this post. Enjoy and be thankful. 

  • Shannon

    For the teaser, I think you got the wrong Mel Gibson flick cause there’s nothing that take places after the events of Gallipoli. When I looked at the HBO dates even though the December schedule isn’t complete, I saw Get Hard and Insurgent as the two confirmed flicks premiering that month. There’s a good chance that Mad Max: Fury Road is coming to HBO.

    • Jef Dinsmore

      I never said it was a Mel Gibson movie. The movie is not showing up in HBO’s schedule yet; that would make this a bit too easy.

      • Shannon

        The Longest Ride and Water Diviner are also confirmed for next month. Looks like the correct Aussie film you are looking for is showing up. For some reason this and Gallipoli are similar because of a war after I read the synopsis for both films.
