New TV Spot for Better Call Saul with New Footage

23 December 2014 8:22 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

AMC has rereleased a new promo for Better Call Saul that thankfully features a good amount of new footage from the Breaking Bad prequel/spin-off series. Bob Odenkirk is back as the shady attorney Saul Goodman. The show also stars Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, and Michael Mando. Here’s the synopsis:

The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, woven with dark humor.

Co-creator Vince Gilligan directed the first episode of the series, »

Michelle MacLaren Says No Greenlight For Wonder Woman Yet

23 December 2014 7:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The name Michelle MacLaren has steadily become one of the more recognizable monikers to those that pay attention to film and TV, thanks to her eye-catching work on the beloved television series, Breaking Bad. Despite a resume that spans over twenty years – including titles such as The X Files, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and NCIS – it was the story of Walter White that represented her biggest directorial break, and ultimately led to Wonder Woman.

MacLaren was interviewed recently by Vulture and was inevitably questioned about her involvement with the Amazon Warrior Princess.

“I really, really, really can’t talk about this. I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?”

However, as the article points out, the director does offer an update of sorts, urging caution.

“…at the moment there is no script, »

The new ‘Better Call Saul’ teaser is all about the money

22 December 2014 4:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The latest teaser for Better Call Saul might only be 30 seconds long, but this snippet gives fans a real taste of the show’s scope and tone. I’m not expecting the series to be better than Breaking Bad, but I’m confident that Vince Gilligan and co. will deliver another thrilling hit series. Better Call Saul premieres at 10 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8 but will air on Mondays at 10 p.m. in subsequent weeks. Watch the teaser below.

Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. »

New Better Call Saul Teaser Gets Caught Up In the Idea of Winning

22 December 2014 2:13 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yeeesh, is this my first Better Call Saul post?  Well let me go on the record and say that I'm cautiously optimistic for this new show.  We'll never get another Breaking Bad but, while playing in the same sandbox may seem like a bad idea, I'm fairly sure Vince Gilligan and company know that lightning never strikes twice and won't be 100% repeating themselves.  If the show has a different tone and objective, hopefully it avoids becoming the Joey of the Breaking Bad legacy. The new tone seems to be fairly evident in this 30-second teaser, which definitely operates under the assumption that we've seen Breaking Bad and know Bob Odenkirk's character since it consists primarily of people telling Saul things we already know run counter to his moral compass.  Hit the jump for the new Better Call Saul teaser.  The two-night series premiere begins on February 8th at 10/9c. »

Watch: New Trailer For 'Better Call Saul' Features Actual Scenes From The Prequel Series

22 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

AMC has been doing a good if somewhat frustrating job of marketing the hell out of their upcoming "Better Call Saul" without much in the way of images or footage from the series. There has been a very small amount, but it has been seemed wildly out of proportion with the amount of effort they are expending on a program that's still a good two months away from broadcast. But that changes today with the arrival of a new teaser trailer which, believe it or not, has actual scenes from the series. But there is a downside.... Running only thirty seconds long, this thing whips by in a flash but nonetheless lays down the show's groundwork. We're jumping back to 2002 to see the origins of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), or as he was known then, James M. McGill, a textbook shyster who seems even more desperate than he was in the days of "Breaking Bad, »

What The Crime Films of 2014 Owe to The End of ‘Breaking Bad’

19 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“Guess I got what I deserved.” Badfinger’s “Baby Blue” provided a fitting sendoff to arch criminal Walter White in the final scene of Vince Gilligan’s landmark television drama Breaking Bad. We guess that’s all the show had to say. All that remained was silence, and, honestly, a fairly formidable void. Where now would audiences go? What did we deserve? As far back as we can remember, crime films have been a staple of American cinema. From the roaring days of James Cagney and the Warner gangster movies to the golden age of Scorsese, it seemed evident that the one place crime almost always paid was at the theater. Still, when looking back over the year in film that was 2014, it can’t be denied that the genre took some rather interesting turns and indeed experienced an embarrassment of riches that would make Henry Hill’s Lufthansa heist seem like small potatoes.

Why Night At The Museum 3 Is Actually The Touching Sendoff Robin Williams Deserves

19 December 2014 8:37 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Very few of us get the opportunity to script our own farewell. David Chase and Vince Gilligan did it with their own brilliant television programs. Stephen Colbert did it last night. And the late, great Robin Williams pulls it off beautifully with Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb, which you can start seeing today. This column will talk openly about Night at the Museum, so bail now if you want to avoid all spoilers. Our own Mike Reyes mentioned this in his review of the third and final Night At The Museum chapter, commenting that director Shawn Levy and co-stars Robin Williams and Ben Stiller "end the film with an emotional finale that closes out the series in a bittersweet manner." Williams returns to his role of the wax-figure Teddy Roosevelt, who comes to life each evening to help museum security guard Larry (Stiller) on a series of »

Goodbye, 'Colbert Report'! We'll meet again some sunny day

19 December 2014 7:23 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

To watch a truly satisfying finale is that rare thing, like getting to see Abraham Lincoln's unicorn horn. Our expectations as fans are often so high, it's almost impossible to meet them. And it seemed like Stephen Colbert was winking at that idea in the final, go-big episode of The Colbert Report, which featured an all-star singalong to "We'll Meet Again" that included (among many others) Henry Kissinger, an astronaut, Big Bird, Bill Clinton, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan (who was still chained up in Colbert's basement after his own finale) before its host flew off in a sleigh with three beyond-your-wildest-dreams, »

Instead, Colbert's Colbert became immortal, and he closed out his nine-year Comedy Central run with a performance for the ages.

The host ended his Report with an all-star performance of Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again," featuring "We Are the World"-style appearances by an incredible cast of singers, actors, politicians and pundits. First out to »

Stephen Colbert Cheats Death in Star-Studded Final Episode of ‘The Colbert Report’

18 December 2014 10:02 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After nine years on his own show, and even longer as a correspondent on “The Daily Show,” Stephen Colbert finally bid farewell to his conservative pundit alter ego in the final episode of “The Colbert Report” Thursday night on Comedy Central.

“If this is your first time tuning in to ‘The Colbert Report,’ I have some terrible news,” he said. “This is in fact your last time tuning in to ‘The Colbert Report.'”

It was a star-studded farewell for the long-time host when Colbert broke into a goodbye song. He was joined on-stage by many of his favorite past guests including Jon Stewart, »

Stephen Colbert Signs Off ‘Colbert Report’ with Star-Packed Sing-Along

18 December 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Many wondered if Stephen Colbert, after playing a bloviating conservative for 1,447 episodes of his “Colbert Report,” might finally break character and just speak as Stephen Colbert, human being, in Thursday’s final episode. He did not.

Spoiler Alert: Don’t read this if you don’t want to learn details about Stephen Colbert’s final “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central before you’ve seen it for yourself.

In fact, Colbert took things in the opposite direction. In the show’s middle segment, he defeated death and then declared himself immortal. After a commercial break, he warbled the Ross Parke and Hughie Charles tune “We’ll Meet Again” with a wide-ranging and random assortment of well-wishers -ranging from George Lucas to Katie Couric, to Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy to Arianna Huffington to Cookie Monster – then took off in a sled to Eternity with Santa Claus, Abraham Lincoln and “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek. »

First Better Call Saul Poster Returns To New Mexico Desert

15 December 2014 3:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC will be heading back to the world of Breaking Bad next February, but viewers will have to deal with the absence of that series’ leads Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Spinoff Better Call Saul, which follows Bob Odenkirk’s conniving Saul Goodman as he rises to infamy as a less-than-reputable criminal attorney, is set years before Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) ever crossed his path.

Today, a new poster for the series has arrived. It doesn’t reveal a whole lot, but instead teases a return to Breaking Bad‘s New Mexico deserts. Though the poster doesn’t communicate a lot of plot, what we’ve heard thus far about the spinoff and its characters is cause for excitement.

Better Call Saul introduces viewers to a new side of Saul Goodman, opening on him as a good, honest attorney by the name of Jimmy McGill. Life’s not easy for Jimmy though, »

AMC Unveils First Better Call Saul Poster and New Teaser

15 December 2014 11:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It kind of feels like Breaking Bad only just came to an end a few months ago, so it’s hard to believe that the spinoff series Better Call Saul is set to debut in less than two months.  We’ve seen a number of brief video teasers for the Bob Odenkirk-fronted series, but today AMC unveiled the first Better Call Saul poster, which actually might give us a pretty good indication of the show's tone.  While creator Peter Gould and executive producer Vince Gilligan (the creator of Breaking Bad) initially envisioned Better Call Saul as a half-hour comedy series, the concept evolved throughout development to a one-hour series that Odenkirk describes as “85% drama, 15% comedy.”  Whatever the final tone may be, I’m incredibly curious to see if Gilligan and Gould can succeed in spinning off one of the best shows of all time.

Watch the Latest, Mysterious 'Better Call Saul' Teaser

Atticus Finch was a crusader for justice and Lt. Daniel Kaffee proved he could handle the truth — but neither has the mug to prove that they're the world's greatest lawyer. In fact, only one man is righteous enough to claim that title, and he's willing to pay half price for it too: Saul Goodman.

In this exclusive new teaser for AMC's Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul, a camera scans a shelf of "World's Greatest" mugs — "Girlfriend," "Teacher," and "Boss" — before finally landing on the "Lawyer" selection, with one missing. »
