ABC is setting up an interesting 2017-18 season with programming ranging from pure soap to comic-book fantasy to science fiction. Here are my gut reactions (and rankings) of the trailers for ABC’s new fall and midseason shows.
A premium cable half-hour pilot that becomes an hour-long musical comedy; an outbreak drama and a superhero/villain team-up – these are the new shows that The CW will bring before us over the 2015-16 season: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Containment (above) and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Now there are trailers! Just follow the jump.
CBS has five new shows slated for fall premieres. Trailers have become available for all five – Angel From Hell, Code Black, Life In Pieces, Limitless (above) and Supergirl.
Check them – and a few thoughts – out following the jump.
FOX’s 2015-16 schedule ranges from sci-fi (The Frankenstein Code, Minority Report) to procedural (Rosewood); from comics adaptation (Lucifer) to satirical animation (Bordertown, above) to sitcoms (Grandfathered, The Grinder) – and beyond.
First Look trailers for the abovementioned seven titles have be released. check them out following the jump.
It’s always fun when a movie title describes precisely what’s in the box. Hector and the Search for Happiness. Seriously, what more do you need to know? Other than that it’s one of the films making its North American Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival – and that it stars Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno.
There are two trailers for Hector after the jump. One is apparently the regular theatrical trailer (which I like, a lot) and the other is for TIFF (which I also like, but a little less). Feel free to check them both out and let us know which makes you happier.
CBS has released trailers for their new summer and fall shows into the ether. Check them out after the jump.
‘They are the thieves, the bounty hunters… the neglected…’ says Zoe Saldana in this new behind-the-scenes look at Marvel’s newest summer blockbuster, The Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out after the jump.
Guardians of the Galaxy rockets into theaters on August 1st.
The illusion of characters driving in an action movie is greatly enhanced when they can do all or at least some of their own driving. In the case of Need For Speed, we get a chance to follow Dominic Cooper through his pre-shoot day at action driving school. If this acting thing doesn’t work out for him…
Check out the video after the jump. Need For Speed rolls into theaters on March 14th.
