Ahead of the premiere of the third season of True Detective on Sunday, HBO aired a new Game of Thrones teaser which reveals April 14 as the debut date for the show’s upcoming six-episode eighth season.
The teaser, which was directed by David Nutter, who won an Emmy in 2015 for the season five finale of Game of Thrones, features an original score by Ramin Djawadi, who also picked up an Emmy for his work on the show in 2018 for the season seven finale.
Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who wrote the scripts for season eight with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill, also directed several episodes of the forthcoming season along with Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik.
While the eighth season of Game of Thrones will ultimately also be its last, HBO isn’t done with the property altogether, as the network has an assortment of different plans for the show tucked up their sleeves.
One of those plans is a spinoff series, which will be set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones and will chronicle the world’s descent from the so-called “Golden Age of Heroes” into its darkest period in history.
“We’re just starting the search for director [and] casting director,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in November, adding that he hopes the spinoff which is based on a story created by Jane Goldman and Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, will begin shooting this year.
Season eight of Game of Thrones will air at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
The first ‘High Life’ trailer finds Robert Pattinson on a mind-boggling space expedition
A24 has released the first trailer for High Life, the eagerly awaited English-language debut from French filmmaker Claire Denis, which debuted to rave reviews from critics following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.
The film follows Monte (Robert Pattison), the only crew member awake on a ship sent deep into outer space, as he rigorously tends to the ship to keep everyone onboard alive, including his infant daughter. However, as Monte’s self-discipline begins to slip, the crew awakens and conflict among the passengers subsequently begins to erupt.
High Life marks somewhat of a reunion for A24 and Pattinson, who starred in Josh and Benny Safdie’s adrenaline-filled crime thriller Good Time in 2017, which was also distributed by the New York City-based indie studio.
In addition to Pattinson, the space thriller features an all-star cast that includes the likes of Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, André Benjamin, Lars Eidinger, Agata Buzek, Ewan Mitchell, Claire Tran, and Gloria Obianyo.
Denis wrote the script for High Life along with Jean-Pol Fargeau and Geoff Cox. Oliver Dungey, Laurence Clerc, Olivier Thery-Lapiney, Andrew Lauren, and DJ Gugenheim are producers.
High Life will open in theaters on April 12.

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, the eagerly awaited next chapter in the Spider-Man series, which finds our friendly neighborhood web-slinger leaving his superhero duties in Brooklyn behind for a couple weeks to go on vacation to Europe with Ned and MJ.

Jon Watts is back in the director’s chair for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, working from a script written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios and Amy Pascal of Sony are producing.
Far From Home‘s all-star cast includes the likes of Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Zendaya as Michelle Jones, Jacob Batalon as Ned, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Laura Harrier as Liz, and Jake Gyllenhaal as the villainous Mysterio, who get a brief glimpse of in the trailer.
We’ll next see Spider-Man in Avengers: Endgame on April 26 before Far From Home opens in theaters this summer on July 5—the same weekend Homecoming was released before going on to gross more than $334 million at the domestic box office.

Jake Gyllenhaal is a snooty art critic in the mind-bending first trailer for ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’
Netflix has released the first trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw, which finds Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo reuniting with their Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy for what appears to be yet another mind-bending, Los Angeles-set thriller. The film is set to premiere at Sundance later this month.
Per the film’s official logline, Velvet Buzzsaw is set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce. However, when a new set of strange, bizarre-looking artwork arrives at the gallery, some rather unfortunate events, to say the least, begin to occur.
Velvet Buzzsaw, which was both written and directed by Gilroy, features an all-star cast that also includes the likes of Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, John Malkovich, Billy Magnussen, Natalia Dryer, Toni Collette, and Daveed Diggs.
In addition to his two main stars, Gilroy also brought back much of his Nightcrawler crew, including cinematographer Robert Elswit, editor John Gilroy, and producer Jennifer Fox, who produces alongside Betsy Danbury, Donald Sparks, and David Feinsibler.
After having its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on January 27, Velvet Buzzsaw will launch globally on Netflix and in select theaters beginning February 1.
