'I've gotten even more film roles where I haven't been the show'
I have to give major props to Viola Davis real quick because when you keep it this real, props must be given. As many of you know the Oscar-nominated actress has joined Shondaland and is the star of a new series How To Get Away With Murder. The show airs on September 25, on the same day as the Scandal Season Four premiere, and you already know not to call me on Thursday nights. I’m so excited, and I was thrilled to read Viola Davis‘ thoughts on the new show, and how it stand apart from other work she’s gotten as a black actress. Click inside for more!
"Things are changing"
We here in the US are a long way off from the season 5 premiere of Downton Abbey but in the UK, the show will return with its new season in just a couple of months … therefore, the promo push for the new season has gotten underway. ITV has released the first teaser video for Downtown Abbey season 5 and as you can see above, this first promo doesn’t really show much of anything … but we are teased by the voiceover nonetheless. Click the embed above to have a look and get excited! Downtown Abbey is nearly back!

The Devil may be in the details
Way back in October of 2012 we got our first look at actor Daniel Radcliffe in character in the upcoming new movie Horns, based on the 2010 novel of the same name by author Joe Hill (son of Stephen King). Today we get to see DanRad in action in Horns in the just-leaked first trailer for the movie. Horns tells the tale of a young man who wakes up one day with horns growing out of his head and the fallout that he experiences when the public assumes he is guilty of murder. It’s a compelling, interesting and novel story. I know we are supposed to be disconcerted by the sight of Daniel with massive horns growing out of his skull but I’m more weirded out by the fact that he is speaking with an American accent in this trailer. Creepy. Click the embed above to see the trailer then click below to see the first official movie poster for Horns. More »

An impressively elaborate fake :(
Blah! Yesterday I shared a teaser video that was believed to be the first from the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show which was cryptic and creepy … which is what we have come to expect from the promos for AHS. Today we learn that the teaser promo is a fanmade fake. A very elaborate fanmade fake. The video was uploaded to an AHS FX You Tube page which is also a fake. Damnit. It seemed a bit early for AHS promos to come out but the video looked so professionally done I didn’t really question its validity. BLAH! Stay tuned, the real AHS: Freak Show promos should be coming along in a few weeks.
Wait for it ...
It’s here! The first teaser video for the forthcoming season of American Horror Story: Freak Show has been released! As you may know, series creator Ryan Murphy has been teasing creepy elements of the new season for the past couple of months and last month, we got our first look at the character(s) that actress Sarah Paulson will play on the show. Today, we get to see the FIRST teaser. Click the embed above to see this Fallen Angel teaser. It starts out innocently enough but … just watch ’til the end :D Enjoy!
On Friday we learned that HBO will air in full a concert special from Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s summer On The Run Tour and today we get our first look at the first trailer for the event. The performance that will air on HBO in September will be filmed live in France so the trailer above features footage from the shows the pair have performed here in the US already. It’s a short tease but should give you a taste of what’s to come. I can’t wait!
Ain't nobody got time for this
Swedish filmmaker Anders Weberg is readying the release of the longest film in history which will be preceded by promo trailers, the first of which we get to see today. Click the embed above to watch the 72-minute short teaser for Weberg‘s Ambiancé … but watch it while you can because it will be taken offline forever in a few weeks. In 2016, he will release the second trailer which will be 440-minutes long. The final trailer, clocking in at 4320-minutes, will be released in 2018 and the full 43,200-minute film will be released on December 31, 2020 (it will run continuously for the entire month of January 2021). So, if you’ve got some time, take a look.

Based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed
Last July we learned that Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to adapt the best-selling memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed into a feature film. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the film. In February, I finally read the book for myself and really enjoyed it. As I read, I could envision in my head how a film adaptation might look. This trailer gives us our actual first taste of the final product. Click the embed above to see this first trailer for Wild and see what you think. Wild will open in theaters in December.

This is Capitol TV
Last month we got to see the first teaser video for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which will open in theaters at the end of this year. Today we get to see the just-released second teaser video for the film. Like the first teaser, this new video is presented as an announcement from President Snow via Capitol TV but unlike the first teaser, this new video gets interrupted by the rebels hiding out in District 13. The video is just under a minute long but you must watch all the way to the end. Then, click below to see the new poster art that was released in conjunction with this new video teaser. More »
Thou Shalt Watch this Trailer
Last week we got to see a batch of promo photos from the upcoming Ridley Scott Biblical epic film Exodus: Gods and Kings, which stars Christian Bale as Moses. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the film. If you know the story of Moses (or the Charleton Heston film The 10 Commandments) then many of the scenes in this trailer will look very familiar to you. If not, then you are in for a very large, very dramatic story when this film is released in theaters. I like what I see in this first trailer but my initial reaction was that the scenes don’t look big enough. A story of this magnitude has to be larger than life … and perhaps watching the trailer on You Tube just won’t cut it. Even still, I’m encouraged that this movie will turn out well when it is shown on the big screen — in 3D. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters in December.
