HBO has released the first teaser trailer for Veep creator Armando Iannucci‘s new comedy series Avenue 5, which is set 40 years in the future when traveling the solar system is no longer just a sci-fi fantasy, but a massive, multi-billion dollar industry.
Hugh Laurie stars here as Ryan Clark, the charming and perhaps overconfident captain of Avenue 5, a space cruise ship that features luxury amenities such as gourmet buffets, a spa, an observation deck, and yoga classes.
The ship’s eight-week orbit around Saturday seems to be going as planned until the ship unexpectedly begins to encounter an assortment of technical difficulties, and it’s up to Ryan and his rather disorderly crew to calm the disgruntled passengers.
The show’s cast also includes Josh Gad as billionaire Herman Judd, the creator of Avenue 5; Zach Woods as Matt Spencer, the head of customer relations; Rebecca Front as Karen Kelly, a strong-willed passenger; Suzy Nakamura as Iris Kimura, Judd’s right-hand woman; Lenora Crichlow as Billie McEvoy, the ship’s engineer; Nikki Amuka-Bird as Rav Mulcair, head of Judd Mission Control; and Ethan Phillips as Spike Martin, a space enthusiast and former astronaut.
Avenue 5, which is written, created, and executive produced by Iannucci, debuts on HBO in January.
The final ‘Antlers’ trailer further reveals Scott Cooper’s Guillermo del Toro-produced horror film
While Scott Cooper’s last film was a bit of a dud, it appears the Hostiles director is looking to redeem himself with Antlers, a Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick starring the terrific pairing of Keri Russell and Jesse Plemons.
Based on Nick Antosca’s short story The Quiet Boy, the film centers around a small-town Oregon teacher (Russell) and her brother (Plemons), the local sheriff, as they discover a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) is harboring a dangerous secret with so-called “frightening consequences.”
Though the latest trailer for Antlers certainly shines a bit more light on the plot than the previous marketing we’ve received, the overall mysterious quality of the film is still very much there and I can’t wait to see what kind of crazy shit unfolds, because you already know some wild stuff is going to go down in this thing if the trailers are any indication.
Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, and Amy Madigan also star in Antlers, which is set to hit theaters via Fox Searchlight on April 17.
‘No Time to Die’ trailer reveals a very exciting first look at Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie
Our first look at Daniel Craig‘s final outing as 007 finally arrived this morning as MGM dropped the eagerly awaited trailer for Cary Joji Fukunaga’s No Time to Die and it certainly looks like Craig is poised to go out with quite a bang.
No Time to Die — the 25th installment in the James Bond series — finds the titular spy having to leave his retirement in Jamaica behind to help his old CIA buddy Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) rescue a kidnapped scientist.
Unfortunately for Bond, this mission isn’t just any ordinary old spy gig and he’ll have to be forced down a dangerous plot that leads him onto the trail of a mysterious villain named Safin (Rami Malek), who’s armed with dangerous new technology.
The film’s stellar ensemble cast also includes the likes of Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, and Billy Magnussen.
No Time to Die hits theaters April 10, 2020.
Larry David faces off against a jammed toaster in this new ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ season 10 teaser
“We can’t wait either,” says the new teaser for the highly anticipated tenth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which will finally return to HBO this January more than two years after season 9 wrapped at the end of 2017.
In the minute-long teaser, we see Curb star and series creator Larry David staring down a two-slice toaster. At first, he just looks a little curious and probably just wants to check on the progress of his toast, you know?
But as he waits and waits and waits and time passes, Larry grows increasingly more impatient as his toast seemingly does not want to release the two presumably very delicious slices of bread trapped within its compartments.
He then proceeds to fiddle with the slider rather aggressively and slams the toaster on the table before proceeding to walk off the set in a fit of rage. It’s only then that the toaster decides to — you guessed it — release the bread.
As exciting as it is, the arrival of a new season of Curb will also be somewhat bittersweet, as it will be one of the first to not feature Bob Einstein, who played Larry’s unforgettable gravelly-voiced friend Marty Funkhouser. Einstein, who was also known for his Super Dave Osborne character on various TV shows, died shortly after being diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.
Season 10 of Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres January 19 on HBO.
