Watch: Justin Theroux Searches for Answers in HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Teaser

14 April 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bright blue ribbon tied to a post and words from Walt Whitman’s poetry serve as an ominous start to the teaser for HBO’s new drama series “The Leftovers.”

Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, the series follows police chief and father of two Kevin Garvey (played by Justin Theroux) as he tries to maintain normalcy in a world in which two percent of the population has disappeared without explanation.

While the majority of the teaser is rather calm, the intensity amps up in the final seconds, giving viewers the sense that they should expect the unexpected in a world where people vanish without a trace.

The show, exec produced by ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof along with Perrotta and ‘Friday Night Lights’ exec producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey, also stars Amy BrennemanChristopher EcclestonLiv Tyler, and Ann Dowd. Lindelof, no stranger to shows about mysterious disappearances, »

New Teaser Trailer Reveals The Leftovers

14 April 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s an interesting premise – a TV show set after The Rapture, created by Damon Lindelof (World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost) and Tom Perrotta (Little Children) – but these kinds of projects fail more often than they succeed, because they lack the necessary tone. If the latest teaser trailer for The Leftovers is anything to go by, however, that won’t be the case with this latest endeavour from HBO.

Starring Justin Theroux (Wanderlust), Amy Brenneman (Private Practice), Carrie Coon (Intelligence), Christopher Eccleston (Thor: The Dark World) and Liv Tyler (Robot And Frank), The Leftovers is a brand new drama that focuses on the small American town of Mapleton after a large-scale disappearance. The trailer sets a mournful scene, as residents of this suburban community struggle to deal with the vanishing of over 100 people.

With Game of Thrones opening to universal praise over the weekend, HBO are showing no signs of letting up for the rest of the year, using the new season’s premiere to launch the first teaser for their upcoming new series, The Leftovers.

When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to understand just what they’re supposed to do about it. The new drama series ‘The Leftovers’ is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.

See a Teaser for Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers

7 April 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's your first look at HBO's upcoming The Leftovers, a drama from Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta based on Perrotta's 2011 book of the same name. The series is set three years after a rapturelike event causes 2 percent of the population to vanish — the kind of gripping central mystery that attracted Lindelof to the project in the first place, he told Vulture in 2012. Peter Berg directed the pilot, which stars Justin Theroux as a police chief and Liv Tyler as a woman being targeted by a cult. This teaser doesn't really give us much from the show, but the brief glimpse is very ominous. »

First teaser for HBO's The Leftovers

6 April 2014 11:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Trailer Louisa Mellor 7 Apr 2014 - 07:35

HBO has adapted Tom Perrotta's Rapture fantasy novel, The Leftovers, and here's the first teaser...

For a teaser trailer, the below does an admirably solid job of explaining rather than mystifying the premise of new HBO drama, The Leftovers. Adapted from Tom Perrotta's 2013 novel, the ten-episode first series tells the story of life after 140 million people inexplicably disappeared in a single moment, through the focus of the surviving characters in a small American town.

The phenomenon, labelled the Rapture by many, and explained in countless hostile ways by others (especially the God-fearing who were left behind) splinters families and sets characters on unprecedented paths. It's a warm, accessible novel with a dark edge, and if anyone can bring it to the screen, then HBO can.

Christopher Eccleston, Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler and more appear in the series, which was co-written by Lost »

Watch: First Teaser Trailer For Damon Lindelof's HBO Series 'The Leftovers'

6 April 2014 6:28 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Your thoughts about "Lost," "Prometheus" and "Cowboys & Aliens" (among others) may influence how you feel about writer/producer Damon Lindelof, equally successful and controversial given his contributions to a variety of high-profile projects. His next gig finds him returning to the world of episodic television, this time on HBO with "The Leftovers," another supernatural story with an intriguing premise. One of our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014, the show is based on the 2011 novel by Tom Perotta, focusing on those in a suburban community left behind after the Rapture summons most of humanity up to heaven (or did it?). As a concept for a show? Great stuff. It's hard not to be compelled by the material—and the cast is pretty solid too, with Justin Theroux in the lead and supporting players including Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Michael Gaston and Ann Dowd. And hell, Peter Berg directed the pilot. »

Unused Hancock Scene From The Mind Of Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan

2 April 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Before Vince Gilligan went off to tell a story about a high school chemistry teacher that gets cancer and turns to cooking and selling meth to pay for his treatment, he was working on the screenplay to Will Smith's Hancock. At that time, the script was known as Tonight He Comes and was about: "a superhero alcoholic who could not make love because if he climaxed, he would kill a woman with the power of his climax." That version was described as "dark" and "twisted." Clearly, we didn't get to see that version in Peter Berg's Hancock, but we can take a glimpse of it with storyboards that were created by storyboard artist Peter Rubin. "In the original version, Bateman's character tries to set Hancock up with a new, do-gooder, Superman-like image, and debuts it at a big fundraising event with giant corporate sponsors and name music acts. »

Mark Wahlberg Reveals Role In 'Mojave,' Amy Ryan Joins 'Monster Trucks' & More

25 March 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While he'll be featuring in the self-described "biggest movie of 2014" with "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," the always busy Mark Wahlberg has a number of other movies percolating that are smaller and much more interesting (at least for us). And he's revealed the status of a few of them to the folks at Collider. In case you were wondering, Rupert Wyatt's "The Gambler" has wrapped, the actor revealed, with the William Monahan-written remake of the 1974 movie one to keep an eye out for. And Wahlberg added that he made another contribution to a Monahan-affiliated project, adding that he also took a "small part" in "Mojave," the next directorial effort from the writer starring Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund. Also, there's one more thing: Wahlberg reveals he'll be reuniting with "Lone Survivor" director Peter Berg to shoot "American Desperado" in September.  Fox 2000 are clearly pretty happy with "The Fault In Our Stars, »

CinemaCon 2014: Roundtable Interview with Dwayne Johnson for ‘Hercules’

25 March 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Nothing can be bigger than Hercules.

Then again, nothing can be bigger than Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson arrived early at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to speak to a small handful of journalists about the revealing of his “Hercules” trailer.

Latino-Review was present at this conversation. We’ve discussed many details about “Hercules” movie. And we even got into other topics about a possible superhero movie, G.I. Joe movie and San Andreas film.

“Hercules” will be in theaters on July 25.

Read the full transcript below.

Question: I’m very curious about the balance between playing it real versus fantasy. Is it like 300 exaggerations?

Dwayne Johnson: Well, there had been a few iterations in the past of Hercules. The idea was to take the spirit of the graphic novel, which we liked, and then create a script and a story based on that that still gave a very unique twist on the story of Hercules. »

Mark Wahlberg Talks Transformers 4, Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler, Peter Berg’s American Desperado, William Monahan’s Mojave, and More

24 March 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just a short time ago in Las Vegas, I landed a great video interview with Mark Wahlberg on the red carpet before Paramount's presentation at CinemaCon.  During the interview Wahlberg talked about making Transformers: Age of Extinction, the action sequences, working for director Michael Bay on a big budget summer movie versus a smaller film like Pain & Gain, Rupert Wyatt's The Gambler, Peter Berg's American DesperadoWilliam Monahan's Mojave, and the New England Patriots (we're both fans of the team). The big news is that Wahlberg revealed American Desperados will be shooting this September and he has a small role in Monahan's Mojave (which hadn't been revealed until tonight).  For those unfamiliar with the story for American Desperado, it's based on a series of interviews between Generation Kill author/journalist Evan Wright and super-criminal Jon Roberts, who was the focus of the documentary Cocaine Cowboys.  Roberts’ life »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 24th 2014

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not much to speak of in the pre-amble this week except that From Dusk Till Dawn episode 2 on Netflix continued in fine form and presented an interesting and somewhat unique version of a vampire which was actually quite scary. If you have written this off because it sounds cheap and forced (admittedly on paper it does) I urge you to give it a watch, the dialogue alone is better than most TV shows, “Got your balls on?” is a great line I will repeat ad nauseam henceforth.

In other news Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has criticised internet providers for not providing a good enough service to allow users to use Netflix to its full potential and the costs of maintaining such a connection, mainly what ISPs are expecting streaming companies to pay them. This has also kicked off a debate about net neutrality which I know little about. I believe »

Doug Liman In Talks To Helm ‘Splinter Cell’

21 March 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman is currently in talks to take on game adaptation Splinter Cell.

The project was previously in the hands of DreamWorks and Paramount, with Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) attached as director. However, Liman is now in the last stages to take on the film, with Tom Hardy already set to star as Sam Fisher, a spy working for anti-terror organisation Third Echelon. Eric Singer, the man behind American Hustle’s script, has already written the screenplay.

Splinter Cell is one of the biggest-selling game franchises, selling over 23 million units worldwide. As the project has been in and out of talks for a while, Ubisoft and New Regency are looking to start production in August, with a predicted release date set for 2015. Better get started soon then!

Local Hero: Lt. Col. Steven Cole Is Liaison Between Army and Hollywood

21 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lt. Col. Steven Cole likes to say that the U.S. Army has been working with Hollywood before Hollywood even existed. The longstanding relationship dates back to 1927, when the Army provided an airplane for “Wings,” the first Academy Award winner for best picture. As the deputy director of the U.S. Army film and television liaison office, Cole is the middle man between the entertainment industry and the service, helping provide production companies access to military equipment, bases, personnel and information.

Road to Tinseltown

Cole joined the Army 18 years ago. After serving as an armor officer for eight years, he attended the U. of Maryland at College Park, and received a master’s degree in African history. He taught in the military academy’s history department for three years before becoming a public affairs officer for the armed service.
