Watch: Oscar Isaac Stands Strong in David Simon’s HBO Miniseries ‘Show Me a Hero’

14 July 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Show Me a Hero” may be a period drama, but the trailer suggests that the upcoming HBO miniseries draws a lot of parallels to the current civil-rights battle in our country.

The story takes place in the 1980s and ’90s and follows Oscar Isaac as Nick Wasicsko, a young Yonkers mayor who finds himself at the crossroads of race and politics when he is instructed to build low-income housing units in his largely Caucasian community. He hopes to be on the right side of history, but at what cost?

Catherine Keener, Jim Belushi, Winona Ryder, Alfred Molina and Jon Bernthal also appear.

Set to be shown in six hourlong installments, the series is an adaptation of Lisa Belkin’s 1999 book and is penned by “The Wire’s” David Simon and William F. Zorzi and directed by Paul Haggis. All three are exec producing, along with Gail Mutrux and Nina Kostroff Noble. »

Watch the first trailer for David Simon’s miniseries ‘Show Me a Hero’

13 July 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As the author of the inspiration for the series Homicide: Life on the Street, as well as the creator of The Wire and Treme, writer David Simon has, over the course of his career, come to be synonymous with quality television for many fans of the medium. With his last series ending in 2013, many were curious about what Simon would do next, a curiosity that was answered with news that Simon would be doing a miniseries about Yonkers Mayor Nick Wasickso, titled Show Me A Hero. The miniseries synopsis can be read below.

Mayor Nick Wasicsko took office in 1987 during Yonkers’ worst crisis when federal courts ordered public housing built in the white, middle class side of town, dividing the city in a bitter battle fueled by fear, racism, murder and politics.

Oscar Isaac takes on the role of Wasicsko for the six-part miniseries, with a supporting cast that includes Winona Ryder, »

Watch: HBO's "Show Me a Hero" Trailer, New Miniseries from Creator of "The Wire"

13 July 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have only the final episode of season five of "The Wire" left to watch. I would have watched it last night, but it clocks in at 93 minutes and I was a little too tired and didn't want to miss a beat. So, it will have to wait. Maybe tonight, maybe next weekend, but at least I'm finally catching up to everyone else that has watched creator David Simon's excellent show in time to introduce to you his next project, "Show Me a Hero", a six-part miniseries premiering on HBO Sunday, August 16. The first trailer is below. Simon wrote the series with William F. Zorzi (story editor on "The Wire" and starred as Bill Zorzi in the fifth season), based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Lisa Belkin, and Paul Haggis (Crash) directs. Set in Yonkers, NY in the 1960s, the series stars Oscar Isaac as mayor Wasicsko, »

Oscar Isaac in the trailer for David Simon's new HBO miniseries 'Show Me a Hero'

13 July 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's only been a year and a half since the end of "Tremé," but that still feels like too long for HBO to be without a David Simon project. Fortunately, the debut of his new miniseries "Show Me a Hero" — directed by Paul Haggis, and starring Oscar Isaac, Winona Ryder, Alfred Molina and Simon regular Clarke Peters, among others — is barely a month away. Here's a trailer for the project, which stars Isaac as Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko, who in the late '80s ran into a lot of trouble trying to integrate the city's public housing: »

Watch the First Trailer for David Simon’s HBO Miniseries Show Me A Hero

13 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

After spending the last few days being embroiled in headlines from San Diego Comic-Con, it feels like Oscar Isaac is in everything right now (as well he should be!) He’s starring in two of the biggest upcoming movie blockbusters — Star Wars: Episode VII, and X-Men: Apocalypse — but he’s also the star of what could quietly be one of the best things on TV this year. The Wire’s David Simon is returning to HBO with the 6-part miniseries Show Me a Hero, which will study (once again, as is his wont) the frayed fabric of the American city. In this case, it’s Yonkers, NY, in the 1960s. Race, inequality, and the desire to do something good inside of a deeply broken system are all familiar ground for Simon (from The Wire to Treme to his most underrated project, Generation Kill), and he will be joined by »

Kenneth Branagh is in talks to direct a new film version of Agatha Christie’s genteel tale of train slaughter, Murder on the Orient Express.

If the film proceeds, it will be the fourth screen transfer for the story, which concerns a mysterious death on a train departing from Istanbul and boasting a picturesque selection of passengers. The novel was most famously adapted in 1974 for a film starring Albert Finney as Belgium sleuth Hercule Poirot; subsequent TV versions in 2001 and 2010 starred Alfred Molina and David Suchet.

16 June 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It looks like Kenneth Branagh might have found his Cinderella follow-up. According to The Wrap, Branagh is currently in talks to direct a new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. The novel was first published in 1934 and has been adapted four times since - there’s Sidney Lumet’s 1974 feature film starring Albert Finney, a five-part radio series for BBC Radio 4, a made-for-tv version starring Alfred Molina that aired on CBS, and then another rendition for the series Agatha Christie's Poirot. Michael Green (Green Lantern) is set to pen the new Murder on the Orient Express film for 20th Century Fox. The narrative features a private detective named Hercule Poirot. During a trip aboard the Orient Express, an American man is murdered and Poirot agrees to investigate and try to find out who did it. Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg are on board to produce the film alongside Mark Gordon. »

15 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How top secret is "American Horror Story: Hotel"? The actors haven't told their families what to expect when the latest installment debuts this October.

Moviefone caught up with Cheyenne Jackson June 7 at the Actors Fund Tony Awards viewing party, where the actor serenaded honoree Alfred Molina with a performance of Elton John's "Your Song."

So can we expect Jackson to sing on "Ahs: Hotel" as well? "I can't say. It's so top, top secret. Literally, not even my mom knows," he said. "I know it's set in a hotel and I know who's in the cast and I know it's scary and amazing. And that's all I know."

The cast, by the way, includes Lady Gaga in her her first TV role (she briefly appeared in "Machete Kills"), as well as Matt Bomer and Max Greenfield ("New Girl") and previous "Ahs" stars Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, »

DVD Review: 'Love Is Strange'

15 June 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Two stand-out performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina illuminate Love Is Strange (2014), the new film from Keep the Lights On (2012) director Ira Sachs. Like 2013's comparable Chilean offering Gloria, it's the story of love in an older generation and just as moving. Lithgow and Molina play Ben and George, two Manhattanites who take advantage of changes to the law and get married after 39 years together in Central Park. However, soon after their honeymoon, George is abruptly fired from his position as a music teacher at a Catholic school after its conservative headmaster worries over public perceptions of his recent marriage.

Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them.

Ten Songs Forever Changed By Movies

31 May 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

People have a pretty intimate relationship with music. The song that was playing when you had your first slow dance, broke up with that certain someone, or lost your virginity will rank higher for you than it will for some random listener. Even bad songs have a way of causing flashbacks, for better or worse. So when a movie ties a song to imagery we never imagined while making out in the back seat, it can shake up our reality a little. Say Anything permanently connected Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” with boom boxes and early-morning wake-ups, and who among us can hear Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” without regretting that they spent good money to see Sleeping with the Enemy? Here are some other songs that celluloid changed forever.
