Though there have been a lot of eyes on Netflix’s returning shows such as House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, plus the offerings from Marvel including Daredevil and A.K.A. Jessica Jones, the streaming service also has another original series set to debut next month, with Kyle Chandler headlining family drama Bloodline. The full trailer for the series is online and demands your eyeballs’ attention below.Bloodline finds Chandler as John Rayburn, part of the wealthy, contemporary Rayburn family that owns property in the Florida Keys. All seems to be well among them until eldest son Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns home and starts to reveal some of the darker secrets the clan has kept buried for years. Soon the family is tearing itself apart as skeletons come rattling out of the closet.It’s perhaps not surprising that there’s drama afoot given that this comes from Glenn Kessler, »
Over the course of his career in high-profile films, Kyle Chandler’s involvement has been in the form of the supporting role more often than not, with Zero Dark Thirty, Argo or The Wolf of Wall Street being the most recent examples. For his next project, though, the actor is set to change tact to embody John Rayburn in Netflix’s upcoming family drama Bloodline.
In the series, Chandler’s character is one of four adult children of a wealthy family situated in Florida Keys. But their affluent livelihoods aren’t filled with sunshine and rainbows 24/7, as evidenced by the abrupt arrival of their estranged eldest brother, Danny (Exodus: Gods and Kings‘ Ben Mendelsohn), who flips the convention of the prodigal son on its head.
The trailer above does a solid job of ramping up the tension without revealing the core reason behind Danny’s sudden return, but given that it seeds gunfights, »

Netflix wants to get subscribers excited for one of its upcoming original series. The streaming service has dropped the trailer and poster for the family drama Bloodline.
The Bloodline trailer begins by introducing viewers to Florida’s well-respected Rayburn family, currently celebrating the 45th anniversary of the parents’ hotel. But the images get less cheerful when the shunned, oldest brother Danny (played by Ben Mendelsohn) shows up and starts dredging up hidden family secrets. The trailer ends with the foreboding words featured on the Bloodline poster: “We’re not bad people, but we did a bad thing.”
Bloodline was announced back in October 2014, and six images from the series were released a month later. The Netflix original series is the brainchild of Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler, and Daniel Zelman, the creators of FX’s Emmy-winning show Damages. Bloodline stars Kyle Chandler, Sissy Spacek, Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Norbert Leo Butz, »

“We’re not bad people,” promises Kyle Chandler’s John Rayburn at the end of the first full trailer for Netflix’s new drama, Bloodline, “but we did a bad thing.” And since that sentence appears to be the dark and ominous slogan for the series, I’m guessing John is going to be a much different and, potentially, a much dangerous character than Coach Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights. Although Chandler is the headlining star, the cast of Bloodline features many familiar names and faces, including Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks, Mad Men), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Norbert Leo Butz (Dan in Real Life), Jamie McShane (Sons of Anarchy), Jacinda Barrett (Suits) and Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace). The series was created and is executive produced by Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler (Damages) and takes place in the Florida Keys, »

If you're a fan of Friday Night Lights, you might be pleased to hear that Kyle Chandler is starring in a new series for Netflix, called Bloodline. However, this series doesn't look like it's going to have much else in common with the beloved football series. The first trailer introduces the Rayburn family, a prominent Florida Keys family headed by Robert (Sam Shepard) and Sally (Sissy Spacek). The show centers on the family's four adult siblings (Chandler, Linda Cardellini, and Norbert Leo Butz) whose lives get shaken up when their black-sheep brother (Ben Mendelsohn) returns home. The trailer is haunting, partially thanks to a slow cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters." All 13 episodes of Bloodline will be available in March, so block off that whole month. Check out the first teaser, as well: »
You can keep "Better Call Saul," and let's hope "House Of Cards" returns to first season form when it drops later this month, but the drama series I'm most looking forward to at the moment is Netflix's "Bloodline." Why? Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, and Sissy Spacek — there's five reasons. And oh yeah, this first full length trailer is pretty great. From the folks who brought you "Damages," this new series follows a respectable, beautiful family who seem to have everything figured out on the surface, only for the dark sheep of the brood to return and bring trouble with him. And that black sheep? Played by the always fantastic Ben Mendelsohn. Frankly, Mendelsohn and Chandler alone in a show would have me watching, but they've got a great ensemble around them in what looks like a swampy, potent drama. "Bloodline" arrives on on Netflix on March 20th. »

Netflix's latest series may be set at a sun-drenched resort, but it sure does look dark. Kyle Chandler stars as John Rayburn, who is a detective with the Monroe County Sheriff's office in the Florida Keys when his older brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns and throws the Rayburns' lives into disarray. "Sometimes you know something's coming," John says over the increasingly uneasy trailer. "You feel it in the air. You don't sleep at night. The voice in your head's telling you that something's going to go terribly wrong, and there's nothing you can do to stop it." For his part, »

Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick – Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth. »

This little vampire makes you believe she can bite, wrestle and choke a man twice her size to death. It’s like a trip back to...
For those veteran theatergoers who saw Paris but didn’t visit the Grand Guignol before it closed shop in 1962, the new stage adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel and screenplay “Let the Right One In” is a must-see. Stage director John Tiffany offers some superb reincarnations of the bloodsucking and bloodletting that distinguishes Tomas Alfredson’s 2008 vampire film, and he adds another grizzly touch, inspired by Brian De Palma, that will shock no »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »

Mateo Gil, co-writer of Alejandro Amenabar’s Oscar-winning “The Sea Inside” and director of Sam Shepard starrer “Blackthorn,” will go into production Monday on his third feature, “Project Lazarus,” a U.S.-set sci-fi love story starring Tom Hughes (“About Time”), Charlotte le Bon (“The Walk,” “Yves Saint Laurent”), Oona Chaplin (“Games of Thrones”) and Barry Ward (“Jimmy’s Hall”).
Also penned by Gil, also a co-scribe on Amenabar’s “Open Your Eyes” and “Agora,” “Project Lazarus” is produced by Ibon Cormenzana for Barcelona’s Arcadia Motion Pictures, which backed Claudia Llosa’s Berlin Competition player “Aloft,” with Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy and Melanie Laurent, a Sony Pictures Classics pick-up for North and Latin America. A co-producer on “Blackthorn” and Isabelle Coixet’s 2015 Berlin opener “Nobody Wants the Night, »

Exclusive: Writer, director, and producer E.L. “Evan” Katz, who won the 2013 SXSW Audience Award with his festival favorite dark comedy Cheap Thrills, has joined Jim Mickle and Nick Damici (Cold In July) as writer and producer on SundanceTV’s original scripted series Hap and Leonard.
Premiering in 2016, the series is adapted from author Joe Lansdale’s Southern noir books about an unlikely pair of best friends and martial arts experts who try to stay on the right side of the law in 1980s East Texas. SundanceTV ordered six one-hour episodes in November. Filming begins this year with Mickle set to direct a number of episodes.
The show marks Katz’s first foray into television after writing, directing, and producing his way up the genre film ranks. He also directed a slick entry in last year’s horror anthology ABCs of Death 2.
Hap and Leonard is the latest Lonsdale adaptation »

Jeff Nichols has been a steadily rising director since his excellent 2007 debut, Shotgun Stories, which first united him with star Michael Shannon, who has gone on to appear in all his features since. 2011’s Take Shelter, starring Shannon and Jessica Chastain, premiered at Sundance before hitting Cannes, while 2012’s Mud played in the main competition at Cannes before heading to Sundance. Each film has seen a significant increase in production value, so we’re not surprised to find Nichols finally working on a studio financed production with Midnight Special, starring Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, and returning cast members Shannon and Sam Shepard. A sci-fi film concerning a father and son that go on the run after discovering his child has special powers, this recalls a heyday of adult studio genre films from the 1980s, perhaps Stephen King’s Firestarter (1984)?

The semi-annual Television Critics Association’s winter press tour is well underway, and Netflix is taking the opportunity to shed some light on its future slate of originals. It was recently revealed that Marco Polo, a historical epic that is the streaming giant’s most ambitious series to date, has been picked for a second season of 13 episodes, to premiere sometime next year.
Production on the second season of Marco Polo will commence later this year. The show received mixed reviews in its first season, but it represents a huge step for Netflix’s original programming, so the streaming giant was always sure to stand behind it for multiple seasons. The John Fusco-created drama stars Lorenzo Richelmy as Marco and features Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Zhu Zhu, Chin Han, Olivia Cheng, Tom Wu, Remy Hii, Uli Latukefu, Mahesh Jadu, Claudia Kim and Rick Yune.
Netflix also announced premiere dates for several upcoming originals. »
