Trust: new trailer for Danny Boyle's series

Joseph Baxter Nick Harley Kirsten Howard Jan 10, 2018

Danny Boyle’s new crime series, Trust, focuses on the Getty kidnapping. An impressive cast has been assembled...

FX recently expanded its prestige drama lineup with Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s new anthology series, titled Trust. This particular offering dramatises one of the most intriguing public criminal incidents of recent history with the ransom-seeking kidnapping of curly-locked young heir John Paul Getty III, which shockingly resulted in apparent indifference and noncompliance from the family patriarch.

While this story might ring familiar to those who caught All the Money In The World, the latest film from director Ridley Scott, expect this limited series to delve deeper into the Getty calamity.

A new trailer for the series has just arrived. Take a look...

Trust release date

Trust is set to debut in the Us on 25th March. We'll bring you the UK broadcast details when we have them.

How Balthazar Getty 'Struggled' with Billionaire Family's Dark Legacy — and Survived Scandal

How Balthazar Getty 'Struggled' with Billionaire Family's Dark Legacy — and Survived Scandal
Despite growing up in one of the wealthiest families in the world, Balthazar Getty struggled to find his place in and make peace with the family’s complicated legacy, part of which is portrayed in the new movie All the Money in the World. His great-great grandfather was the cold and miserly J. Paul Getty, who was at one time the world’s richest private citizen and in 1973 famously refused to pay the ransom to return his kidnapped grandson John Paul Getty III, Balthazar’s father.

The actor, 42, who recently appeared on the new season of Twin Peaks, has admitted

Yes, Balthazar Getty Is the Son of Kidnapped John Paul Getty Heir in ‘All the Money in the World’
Ridley Scott’s new movie “All the Money in the World” follows the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the then-16-year-old grandson of billionaire oil magnate John Paul Getty. While the elder Getty (played by Christopher Plummer, replacing Kevin Spacey) is seen in the film making plans for the Getty Villa on the Malibu coast to house his extensive art collection, the film does not reference the family’s more recent Hollywood connection. Actor Balthazar Getty, best known for playing winery scion Tommy Walker on ABC’s mid-2000s drama “Brothers & Sisters,” is the son of John Paul Getty III.

Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World Trailer Teams Wahlberg and Spacey

  • MovieWeb
Sony Pictures has released the first trailer, poster and photo for All the Money in the World, which could very well be one of the early Oscar candidates this year, showcasing an incredible true story. Kevin Spacey stars as billionaire oil magnate J. Paul Getty, who was once considered the richest man in the history of the world, although he would not use that wealth to free his 16-year-old grandson John Paul Getty III, when he was kidnapped in 1973. What's perhaps the most impressive part of this trailer is how quickly this movie came together in the first place.

We first reported on this project almost exactly six months ago in March, when director Ridley Scott signed on to this kidnapping drama, with production slated to begin this past May, despite no cast members being attached. While production start dates often come and go without coming to fruition, the film wrapped principal photography in mid-August,

Twin Peaks: was this the long, perfect goodbye from David Lynch?

Twin Peaks: the Return was the culmination of Lynch’s life’s work. But its last, weary moments were surely proof that he’s bowing out on us

David Lynch’s debut Eraserhead was the greatest home movie ever made. Shot over five years in a disused stable block behind the American Film Institute where the director was living at the time, it was painstakingly constructed frame by frame by a group of committed friends – the very definition of a labour of love. Exactly 40 years later, Lynch has just completed his most personal project since. Twin Peaks: the Return may have had a starry cast, cutting-edge digital effects and an 18-hour run time. But at heart, it was just another home movie: the work of an artist coming full circle, incorporating everything he’s learned in four decades as a filmmaker back into the hands-on, Diy template he established with his first film.

Lord of the Flies Is Getting an All-Girl Reboot

Lord of the Flies Is Getting an All-Girl Reboot
The classic William Golding novel Lord of the Flies, which has been adapted twice for the big screen, will be adapted yet again, only this time, with a huge twist. Warner Bros. has finalized a deal with filmmakers Scott McGehee and David Siegel (What Maisie Knew) to write and direct a new version of Lord of the Files, which will have an all-female cast. The filmmakers will reportedly be incredibly faithful to the original novel, while, at the same time, gender-swapping all of the character.

Deadline reports that it took some time to get the film rights intact, since the whole situation is rather complicated. The original novel, which was published in 1954, was adapted into the 1963 film Lord of the Files, which starred James Aubrey, Tom Chapin and Hugh Edwards, and was directed by Peter Brook. Then in 1990, Castle Rock released a new adaptation from director Harry Hook, which starred

‘Twin Peaks’: Time Loops and Soup Offer Clues to the Town’s Dysfunction and Imminent Danger

‘Twin Peaks’: Time Loops and Soup Offer Clues to the Town’s Dysfunction and Imminent Danger
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return,” Season 3, “Part 13” (Episode 13).]

History repeating itself on “Twin Peaks” has so far fallen into the category of not learning from or not being able to move on from past mistakes. Shelly (Madchen Amick) married an abusive man when she was too young and is now romantically involved with Red (Balthazar Getty), a man who’s been shown to have violent tendencies. Her daughter Becky (Amanda Seyfried) also married an abusive man.

In this past Sunday’s episode, Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) reveals through a heartbreaking look that he’s still in love with Norma (Peggy Lipton), while she’s involved with someone else. Even Ed’s nephew James (James Marshall) gives viewers major deja vu with his rendition of “Just You,” a song he had crooned in Season 2 of the original series with two dark-haired ladies backing him up.

"Twin Peaks," Episode 11 Recap: I Want To Get Us There In One Piece

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.A study in contrasts. That's the best way to describe Part 11 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which opens with a brief moment of doom-laden calm—three young boys playing catch happening upon the bruised and beaten but very much alive Miriam Sullivan (Sarah Jean Long)—then details, for its first half, the many ways in which the titular town, as well as the few-states-over locale of Buckhorn, South Dakota, are coming unglued. But this is dramatic incident Lynch-style, which means that the narrative rhythms are always shifting (violently, unpredictably), as if someone was continually revving a car engine into the red, but never in a calculable way.There's madness in such extremity, as there's insanity in the blood-curdling scream

Twin Peaks Recap: Becky's Got a Gun

Twin Peaks Recap: Becky's Got a Gun
A bumpy Twin Peaks this week. Surprise horror, painfully drawn out moments, and at least one big revelation: Bobby Briggs seems to be Becky’s father. And at some point Shelly and Bobby were married, as we now know that Shelly’s last name is Briggs (more on the state of that marriage in a moment). So yes, it would seem that I was wrong last week about Leo being Becky’s father (and perhaps wrong about Becky killing Leo). But I would like to remind you that Shelly is still wearing that mysterious ring on a chain around her

The Little Hours Character Posters: "Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry."

Written and directed by Jeff Baena, The Little Hours stars Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Mucucci, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Nick Offerman, Adam Pally, Jon Gabrus, and Lauren Weedman.


Inconceivable Release Details: Press Release: "Los Angeles, June 22, 2017 -- As its June 30 theatrical and digital release approaches, actor/director/producer Jonathan Baker reflects on the theme of his film, which, safe to say, is an entertaining thriller with a cautionary message: if you’re thinking about IVF, surrogate motherhood or even just hiring a child minder, be careful. Rather like Jaws’ tagline, “You’ll never go in the water again,” after seeing Inconceivable, you just might want to think twice before leaving your child alone with a stranger, even as attractive and seductive one as Inconceivable star Nicky Whelan.

Baker cites nanny, surrogacy and IVF programs gone wrong when he talks about why he chose to do the film. “The movie is about a couple and their journey though In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), surrogate motherhood and a vindictive nanny. IVF is a topic that can be taboo, even in the USA. In addition to entertaining the audience, I wanted to shed light on this subject—which affects so many couples—in an open forum to help dispel the secrecy and even shame surrounding this topic. The film provides the space for a real problem to play out (in an admittedly extreme way) in a fictional world. There are many people who want children that need the help, and this film strings viewers along for their struggle, but in a very different, arguably darker, way.”

“While the film at first focuses on IVF, the focus naturally dips into surrogate motherhood as it becomes the route used to solve the couple [played by Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershon]’s infertility,” Baker continues. “But is the surrogate mother potentially signing her unborn child’s life away? For the average couple, surrogacy does not connect with losing a child; however this thriller is all about exploring that fear. Allowing a stranger into your world can be frightening in itself, but such vulnerability is amplified with surrogacy. The film proves that IVF and surrogacy can create a dangerous cocktail of tension, paranoia, and fear that can destroy a family.”

Deception doesn’t always come from where you expect it to; sometimes it comes from your most trusted nanny as seen with Inconceivable. When a stranger is in the home, it is natural to fear something might go wrong. Such incidents have been widely broadcast in cases such as with Gwen Stefani, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Balthazar Getty, among others. Isn’t it weird that we trust strangers with our most prized possessions: children? I wanted to combine these topics to bring these fears to the screen, because fear is what gets people talking. Through discussion, society can better address such topics.

Overall, my goal for this film was to make something that matters and really hits home with people. Infertility is a harsh reality for many prospective parents, and I wanted to help contribute to such an important dialogue as this. I want my movie to bring the topics out of hiding and into open discussion. That’s why ‘deception hits home’ is such a fraught tag line for the movie.”

Starring Nic Cage, Gina Gershon, Faye Dunaway and Nicky Whelan and co-starring Eva Marie and Jonathan Baker, Lionsgate Premiere is releasing Inconceivable June 30."

"Twin Peaks," Episode 6 Recap: Make Sense of It

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.A man walks into a bar—after cursing out Gene Kelly (because most of the time we don't feel like singin' in the rain). The bar, by the way, is named "Max Von's," surely after Erich von Stroheim's rabidly devoted butler Max von Mayerling from Sunset Blvd (1950). Of his employer, silent-film diva Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), Max once said, "Madame is the greatest star of them all." No more proper locale, then, for a star entrance: "Diane," says FBI forensics specialist Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer) to a platinum blond beauty nursing martini and cigarette. Around turns Diane Evans, the heretofore unseen confidante of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), and played (of course, how could there be any doubt?) by Laura Dern.

Twin Peaks Season 3 Episode 6 Review

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the sixth episode of Twin Peaks season 3…

Returns don’t have to mean the same thing but they’ve come to take on a certain form. Revisit old characters, see what their lives have been like, walk the familiar haunts. We’re a third of the way through Twin Peaks season three, and it might be time to reevaluate what David Lynch means by “return.” Fans have gotten over the hump of waiting for Twin Peaks to come back, but the characters on the show haven’t. They’re still fighting to return, and none more so than Cooper, whose difficulty breaking out of Dougie Jones’ persona has Mike in the Black Lodge anxious for him to wake up.

Dougie Jones always seemed temporary because Twin Peaks needed Cooper to feel like itself again. Whether you experience the same giddiness seeing Kyle MacLachlan smile at lights turning on,

'Twin Peaks' Recap: Hit and Run
Harry Dean Stanton is 90 years old, though he's looked so world weary for so long that he seems somehow ageless and immortal. In light of the key Twin Peaks players who've died before the series' return to the air – Jack Nance, Frank Silva, Frances Bay, Don S. Davis, Warren Frost, David Bowie, and most hauntingly Miguel Ferrer and Catherine Coulson, who reprised their roles as Albert Rosenfield and the Log Lady before they passed away – we're fortunate to have him. When his character, Carl Rodd, tells his younger companion "I've been smokin' for 75 years,

Twin Peaks Episode 6 Recap: 'Diane, That's a Damn Good Wig'
Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure) was rumored to have the part back in 1991. And theories swirled over the years suggesting Agent Cooper’s trusty Gal Friday might just be a figment of his imagination. But in Sunday’s Twin Peaks, the one and only “Diane” was finally revealed to be none other than Laura Dern. (Nifty that she played his Girl Friday back in Blue Velvet too, huh?) A satisfying moment 27 years in the making (even if most of us guessed and hoped it was coming). Now, Albert (who found her in Max Von’s Bar in Philadelphia – did that

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: The Person Everybody Has Been Waiting to See for Over 25 Years Doesn’t Disappoint

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: The Person Everybody Has Been Waiting to See for Over 25 Years Doesn’t Disappoint
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Twin Peaks” Episode 6, “Don’t Die.”]

While “Twin Peaks” continues to play the long game when it comes to its various mysteries, Sunday’s episode at least offered a tantalizing carrot to viewers one-third of the way through the season. Fans finally got to see whom Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) has been speaking to all of these years: The never-before-seen Diane, naturally portrayed by David Lynch favorite Laura Dern.

Diane was Cooper’s secretary from his earliest days in the FBI and the recipient of all of his audio reports and musings. She never appeared on screen, but he confided everything in her. Many speculated long before the show premiered that Dern, who had never been a part of the original “Twin Peaks” cast, would get the plum role of Diane.

The scene, while brief, is satisfying in its details. Albert’s (Miguel Ferrer) important work that evening is to follow up on that promise that he “knows where she drinks,

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 1 & 2 Recap: Do Not Drop Up

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The world's gone mad. Fortunately for FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), he's been able to sit out most of the real-life insanity of the last 25 years. Unfortunately—as surely known by those viewers familiar with Mark Frost and David Lynch's singular television series Twin Peaks, which returned Sunday, May 21st for a limited, 18-episode run on Showtime—that's because he's been trapped in the unearthly purgatory known as the Black Lodge, all while his devilish doppelgänger, a mortal manifestation of the murderous spirit known as Killer Bob, runs amok among mankind.Already it feels like I'm speaking in tongues.
