You Shouldn’t Have Come Here Trailer: Tomb Raider!

With an Oscar®-winning lead and an Oscar®-winning director – Alicia Vikander and Graham Kin, respectively – you should probably expect a certain level of quality in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Tomb Raider.

The film’s first trailer suggests that young Lara Croft will be a force to be reckoned with – and Walton Goggins will be one helluva villain.

Tomb Raider opens on March 16, 2018.

Jesse Eiseneberg Action Hero Trailer: American Ultra

Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) is the prototypical stoner/convenience store clerk – or so it seems. When a CIA agent (Connie Britton) makes a purchase while spouting what sounds to Mike like gibberish, his first response is, ‘Is that a lyric from something?’

But when he catches two guys messing with his car, suddenly he’s Jason Bourne – and the guys messing with car (CIA agents, WTF?) are dead. When he tells his girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), her first response is ‘That’s awesome.’ (Clearly she doesn’t believe him.)

Now Mike and Phoebe are in a situation – life, death, the future of the world at stake, yadda-yadda-yadda.

American Ultra was written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X). It opens on August 21st. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Tonight, FX’s Justified (Tuesdays, 10/9) returns with all the panache we’ve come to expect from the Elmore Leonard-based series. This season, we meet the Florida branch of the Crowe family, while Boyd Crowder and new regular Wynn Duffy try to deal with some problems that arise from their business with Detroit. Raylan gets the equivalent of posterized in court and we meet the newest member of the Givens family.

First Full Trailer: Justified!

JUSTIFIED -- (Season Premiere, Tuesday, January 7, 10:00 pm e/p) -- Pictured: Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens -- CR: Kurt Iswarienko/FX Networks

Justified has often been described as Shakespearean, and it’s true that Elmore Leonard has a great deal in common with the Bard: big themes (love, death, loyalty, justice, family, etc.) and a reliance on dialogue to define characters and tell the story.

The new trailer for the show’s fifth season has just been released. Check it out after the jump. Justified returns to FX Tuesday, January 7th at 10/9C.

Justified: The Complete Third Season – Lines Will Be Crossed!

Justified-Season-3-DVD

After the magnificent performance by Margo Martindale as Mags Bennett in season two, Justified could be excused if it slipped a bit in season three – but it didn’t. Instead, it took a different tack, shifting from the internal dynamics of the region to the intrusion of an outside force to keep the drama high and the comic moments unexpected.

Justified Returns In January – We Have Clips!

In two short seasons, Justified [FX, Tuesdays] has become one of the best shows on television – garnering an Emmy for Margo Martindale for her season two antagonist Mags Bennett. Like The Sopranos and Deadwood before it, Justified mixes folksy and sophisticated in ways that are practically Shakespearean.

FX has released four clips in support of the show’s third season – which premieres on Tuesday, January 17th. Check out the remaining three following the jump.

Walton Goggins Digs Into The Psyche Of Justified’s Boyd Crowder!

Walton-Goggins

Not only is Walton Goggins doing a bang-up job portraying the unpredictable Boyd Crowder on the FX hit Justified [Wednesdays, 10/9C], he is clearly delighted to be doing promotion for the show.

I had the chance to take part in a conference call Q&A with Goggins earlier this week [my third such opportunity]. Despite a glitch that obscured part of the opening question, the session was great fun – Goggins was as thoughtful, articulate and engaging as ever. Such is his enthusiasm that it is easy to believe that he would enjoy going on about the show, and Boyd, for hours – instead of the mere half hour we usually get with him.

Joelle Carter Talks Being In The Middle Of The ‘Man Storm’ On Justified!

justified-Joelle-Carter

Last week, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A session with Joelle Carter who plays Ava on FX’s hit series, Justified [Wednesdays, 10/9C]. She spoke about Ava’s survival instincts and her burgeoning relationship with Walt Goggins’ Boyd Crowder – a relationship that is unique because, in the series premiere, she had just killed her abusive husband, who was Boyd’s brother.

Just as Justified is a unique series, Carter is a unique woman, with an interesting take on her part in the series.

Justified’s Timothy Olyphant Is A Straight Shooter!

justified-season-2b

FX’s hit, Justified [Tuesdays, 10/8C], features a classic hero – filtered through Elmore Leonard’s unique style – in Raylan Givens. I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call with the series’ star, Timothy Olyphant and, as you will see, he’s tough to put one over on. Like Givens, he calls ‘em like he sees ‘em.

Warning – Olyphant does use occasional strong language.

Justified: The Complete First Season – Elmore’s Lawman Sparks Terrific DVD Release!

Justified, S1

The story of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens marks the first time that Elmore Leonard’s work has worked on television. Thanks to cable network FX, the series has been allowed to depict the quirkiness, humor and unexpected bursts violence of Leonard’s work – as well as his crackling dialogue. The first season DVD includes some excellent bonus material that goes into detail about that was done, making it well worth investigating if you’re a fan of great crime fiction and TV.
