HBO has released the first trailer for its own upcoming anthology project, Room 104, and the first look suggests that the series will cover a lot of ground — all from a single motel room.The first trailer for Room 104 was accompanied by a full episode list — with a synopsis for each episode — offering an additional peek at what is to come for the series, which is created and executive produced by brothers Mark and Jay Duplass.Written and directed by a long list of writers and filmmakers, Room 104 tells a different story each episode featuring characters passing through the same room in an American chain motel over the years.The series will be set in different time periods throughout the season, and the episodes will cover a range of genres, from comedy to drama, and even horror.Although both Duplass brothers are serving as executive producers on the series, Mark Duplass — who starred in the FX series The League and created and starred in the HBO series Togetherness — also wrote half the episodes in the first season of the series.The full list of episodes provided by HBO for the first season of Room 104 reads as follows:
The Man in the High Castle is one of Amazon's most successful and popular original series, and season 3 should be even crazier than the first two.So far, New York Comic Con has been very kind to fans of Philip K. Dick, the legendary science fiction author whose works inspired popular (and occasionally groundbreaking) films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall, and A Scanner Darkly.In addition to blessing us with the first trailer for upcoming anthology series Electric Dreams, NYCC 2017 marked the debut of our second official look (following a teaser which dropped in January) at The Man in the High Castle‘s third season, in the form of a three-minute clip (viewable above).In the clip, SS Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) meets with a Nazi scientist who is overseeing experimentation on a young film courier, Fatima Hassan.The scientist explains to Smith that the woman is a “traveler” — a version of Hassan from an alternate reality within the “multiverse” — and provides evidence for his claim (along with the film reel she was carrying prior to her capture).The existence of alternate realities is a recurring thread in High Castle, featuring most prominently early in the first season and acting as a catalyst to bring together lead characters.
I’m not going to bandy about here: Amazon officially debuted a new, extended trailer for its upcoming anthology series Electric Dreams, based on the works of renowned scifi author Philip K. Dick, at New York Comic Con today.And man, does it look great.Obviously the show has nabbed an impressive group of actors, and just as obviously the episodes will range from speculative fiction to horror to contemporary fantasy.But it’s the hard scifi that has me most intrigued—I mean, look at this stuff:I’m not particularly well-versed in Dick’s work (although at least I’ve seen Blade Runner) so I don’t know which, if any, of his stories these scenes in the trailer correlate to; if you know, please share in the comments.The Amazon Prime series doesn’t have a release date yet, but whenever it arrives, it’s jumped to the top of my must-see list.
If you're a big fan of Stephen King, your arcane knowledge of the people, places and supernatural events that appear in his stories will finally pay off.King has teamed up with executive producer J.J. Abrams again for a TV series that will link some of his iconic characters and horrifying events to the mysterious locale of Castle Rock, Maine.In the new trailer that landed Sunday, we get more hints at what's to come in the upcoming anthology series "Castle Rock," debuting on Hulu in 2018.Plenty of cryptic moments fill the new trailer including a missing child poster, a piano fallen through a floor, a burning VHS tape, a funeral procession, a waving mascot standing on a rooftop... the list goes on.The prison from "The Shawshank Redemption" also turns up a few times in the trailer with scenes of a possible prison execution via lethal injection, prison inmates lining up for cell inspection, and an official Shawshank Penitentiary car sinking into a lake.There are new faces like André Holland as Henry Deaver, Melanie Lynskey as Molly Strand, and a few familiar faces too like Sissy Spacek who previously portrayed the telekinetic Carrie, but now portrays Ruth Deaver.
If you were still hankering for more of Solo: A Star Wars Story after yesterday's short Super Bowl TV spot, you're in luck — LucasFilm has released a second, longer teaser trailer for the upcoming anthology film.Roughly twice as long as yesterday's spot, the teaser features many of the same shots, only this time they're fleshed out with more context.The teaser also gives us our first sample of actor Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo voice, which, sounds nothing like Harrison Ford, to be honest.Still, there's plenty of roguish smirking going on, so maybe the rest of the actor's performance will make up for his somewhat whiny voice."Never tell me the odds!"Along with a heaping of action and spectacle, the teaser offers a bit of additional insight into Han Solo's backstory, with the character's voiceover stating "I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own."
