Homeland season 7: first trailer arrives

Den Of Geek Dec 13, 2017

Homeland's seventh season is on the way, and we now have a gripping trailer to sink our teeth into...

Against all speculation about its fate, Homeland recaptured its previous glory during a dynamite sixth season, even offering a finale that left fans reeling. 

So what's next? Well, the good news is that, yes, Homeland season 7 is coming. In even better news, it sounds like Homeland season 8 is also a go. Last June came the first reports that the show was given a two-season renewal that is expected to conclude the series' run. That was confirmed later in the fall, with showrunner Alex Gansa doubling down on ending the series on a two-part high.

And unsurprisingly, it includes a lot of 'ripped from the headlines' political, cloak and dagger plotting.

The trailer is finally here, and the Showtime series promises a presidency gone rogue in its penultimate season.

Trump-Era Cinema: The Uncomfortable Necessity of Reliving the 2016 Election

The 2016 presidential election was a surreal period, with a November 8 outcome that unfolded with the intensity of a horror movie — you know, the kind where the monster that supposedly died a few minutes earlier springs back to life to launch a whole new franchise. Of course, some members of the electorate felt differently. Depending on your point of view, the Trump victory was either a traumatizing jolt or a happy ending, and as the one year anniversary looms we’ve got movies that wrestle with both sides of the equation.

One them is a sequel. In 2008, film distribution executive Jeff Deutchman launched the crowdsourced “11/4/08,” gathering footage from countless filmmakers who captured the highlights of a historic voting day. The result was a rah-rah celebration of the Obama victory on a personal scale, with intimate bonding scenes at voting stations and giddy faces generating a kind of utopian fever. In retrospect,

‘The Misogynists’ Teaser Trailer: A Trump Supporter Wreaks Havoc in Election Night Black Comedy

‘The Misogynists’ Teaser Trailer: A Trump Supporter Wreaks Havoc in Election Night Black Comedy
November 8, 2016 may be a day that will live in infamy for many. For Onur Tukel, it was inspiration for his next film. The indie provocateur behind “Catfight,” “Applesauce” and “Summer of Blood” decided to explore how a Trump supporter experienced the fateful night. This tongue-in-cheek exploration of a divided America digs deep into the night’s mass existential crisis, finding disquieting results. Dylan Baker (“The Americans”) leads the cast with a gleefully deranged performance, altnerately provoking and pontificating throughout the film’s wild first teaser trailer.

Smilf: Connie Britton Is Frankie Shaw's Self-Declared Bestie in Showtime's Single-Mom Comedy — Watch Trailer
After watching this first full trailer for Showtime’s Smilf, we kind of can’t blame Connie Britton’s Ally for wanting to be BFFs with Frankie Shaw’s Bridgette: From the looks of tthings, Bridgette is a rather awesome hot mess.

The roughly two-minute spot, released Thursday, introduces single mother Bridgette, a young single mom in South Boston whose work includes tutoring kids (and getting high with some of them?). Nashville alum Britton recurs as the mother of one of those children, and part of the trailer involves Ally decreeing to Bridgette, “You’re my best friend… y’know,

Shameless Season 8 Trailer: The Gallaghers (Literally) Dig Up the Past

Shameless Season 8 Trailer: The Gallaghers (Literally) Dig Up the Past
“Gallaghers are, generally, not normal humans.”

Well, that’s an understatement— and in a newly released trailer for Season 8 of Shameless, the clan proves just how much so.

For starters, the frequently drunk-and-high-beyond-words Frank St. Francis goes through a spiritual awakening after smoking his share of Monica’s meth. Speaking of drugs, it appears the Gallaghers’ last scheme-gone-awry requires the family to dig up Monica’s coffin, in which Fiona stashed her and Liam’s meth alongside her mother’s dead body.

Look for returning characters to dominate the category, with last year’s winner Hank Azaria likely to repeat his nom for his role as disgraced FBI Agent Ed Cochran in “Ray Donovan.” Beau Bridges should land his third consecutive nod for “Masters of Sex.” Mark Margolis was last nominated for playing Hector Salamanca on “Breaking Bad” in 2012, and that was with a minimum of dialogue, so he has a good shot for bringing a younger but no less terrifying Hector to “Better Call Saul.” Ben Mendelsohn previously won in the supporting category for “Bloodline” but this year he’s eligible as a guest star. year.
