Better Call Saul: Season 3 Extended Sneak Preview And Bryan Cranston's Possible Return To The Franchise

15 January 2017 8:36 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Last week we were given a 30 second clip featuring the return of Giancarlo Esposito's Gus Fring in a Los Pollos Hermanos "commercial" spot. Yesterday however, the fans of the show were gifted a full 3 minutes of the upcoming season. The trailer is called "Crisis Averted" and it references Kim's (Rhea Seehorn) conversation with Jimmy aka Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), or perhaps it is the unreleased title of the first episode. Check it out:

Normally, at this time of the year we would all be highly anticipating the start of Better Call Saul, Fargo, and in a few months Game Of Thrones, but unfortunately all have been delayed for various reasons. Instead, we have to wait until April 10th for Better Call Saul, mid-April for Fargo and Summer for Game Of Thrones, leaving a void for a few months with only the 2nd half of CW shows, Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., »

‘Better Call Saul’: Giancarlo Esposito’s Gustavo Fring Returns for Season 3

14 January 2017 6:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Los Pollos Hermanos is open for business. Producers of “Better Call Saul” had a treat for reporters Saturday evening as AMC wrapped up its Television Critics Association presentation with a panel on the show’s third season, which bows April 10.

The surprise guest at the panel was Giancarlo Esposito, who played a key role in “Breaking Bad” as the meth supplier Gustavo Fring, who also runs a local fast-food chicken joint. Esposito got a round of applause as he walked on the TCA stage in Pasadena, Calif., confirming his involvement in the prequel series starring Bob Odenkirk.

Returning to the character was exciting for Esposito as an actor. But it’s a different Fring than the coolly efficient drug distribution middleman that he played on “Breaking Bad.” For one thing, he’s less experienced.

“We are at a time when he is a little more immature,” Esposito said. “He’s still finding his way. Gus »

Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood and More Stress Why Movies and TV Matter

13 January 2017 11:39 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Really, though — why do movies and television matter?

Clint Eastwood, Denzel Washington, Amy Adams, Kenneth Lonergan, Andrew Garfield, Vince Gilligan and Jeff Bridges are among those who answered the question during last week's AFI Awards luncheon.

"Art matters now, more than ever," said La La Land writer-director Damien Chazelle in the newly compiled video. Hell or High Water star Chris Pine added, "It's the modern equivalent of men and women around the campfire, telling stories."

This Is Us' Mandy Moore said she wants audiences to be "inherently moved" and "relate it back to the challenges and obstacles »

‘Sneaky Pete’: Bryan Cranston Tackles New Challenges With Amazon Drama Series

12 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bryan Cranston was moving around the set like a lion on the prowl.

On a soundstage in Brooklyn on a late September morning, he was in his element, working on a tense, confrontational scene with actors he had handpicked for the drama series “Sneaky Pete,” which drops Jan. 13 on Amazon. With each take, Cranston changed his approach to the showdown among unsavory characters in the backroom of a seedy gambling joint in New York City. He added and subtracted menacing physical gestures, throaty snorts, and nervous laughter. He switched the path of his pacing around a large table. He massaged his monologue, adding pauses and changing the inflection of key words from a guttural whisper to an angry bark.

As he experimented through at least eight lengthy takes that morning, he held the rapt attention of everyone on the set. Actors who weren’t even in the scene gathered around the periphery to catch a master class »

Breaking Bad villain teased in new Better Call Saul teasers

11 January 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A fan-favourite villain from Breaking Bad is all but confirmed to return in prequel series Better Call Saul’s third season.

A new teaser for the new season promotes the fictional fast-food restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos, run by drug kingpin Gus Fring. Gus’s return was hinted at in the second season finale, but Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have remained quiet on whether or not we’d actually see the infamous villain; however, the teaser strongly hints that Giancarlo Esposito will be reprising his famous role.

A second teaser also continues from the first, showing Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill getting booked for an unknown crime as he continues his transformation into Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman.

Season three of Better Call Saul is expected to get underway in the Spring. »

Latest Better Call Saul Season 3 Promo Teases The Return Of A Drug Kingpin – And It’s Not Heisenberg

11 January 2017 10:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Los Pollos Hermanos, the iconic New Mexican food chain first introduced in Breaking Bad, fast became a fixture of Vince Gilligan’s crime saga throughout its five-season run. Headed up by Giancarlo Esposito’s cool, calm, and terrifying Gus Fring – arguably one of the show’s most iconic characters and the chief adversary to Walter White/Heisenberg – Los Pollos Hermanos swings its doors open once more in today’s all-new promo for Better Call Saul season 3.

Stylized as a deceptively innocent commercial – Fring’s restaurant acted as a front for his blood-stained drug empire, remember – this teasing snippet is a clever way to confirm Giancarlo Esposito’s addition to the Better Call Saul universe. It’s a meeting that has been long on the cards, particularly in light of season 2’s finale, which all but confirmed that Gus Fring was on the verge of becoming a long-time client to our Saul Goodman. »

‘Better Call Saul’ Surprise Teaser: ‘Breaking Bad’ Favorite [Spoiler] May Return

11 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The hype for the third season of “Better Call Saul” just kicked into high gear with the release of a new teaser, masking as an advertisement for a everyone’s favorite “Breaking Bad” restaurant. Spoilers ahead!

Proving a common fan theory possibly true, Gus Fring — the chicken king — is coming back. The “Breaking Bad” character, played by Giancarlo Esposito, was one of the biggest methamphetamine distributors in the Southwestern United States, and Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) arch nemesis. While his creative ruthlessness and disturbingly placid demeanor didn’t exactly endear him to fans, his complexity and notoriously stomach-churning demise make him a favorite in the “Breaking Bad” universe.

AFI Awards: Hollywood Veterans and Newcomers Come Together at Luncheon

6 January 2017 4:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showbiz veterans like Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, and Denzel Washington mingled with reps of New Hollywood such as Barry Jenkins, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Andrew Garfield at the 17th AFI Awards luncheon Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

The mixture of longtime figures and newbies was also reflected in the TV honorees, as NBC (the sole broadcast network repped) was side by side with relative newcomers Netflix and Espn Films, and with TV fare ranging from reliables like “Game of Thrones” to the new “This Is Us” and “Stranger Things.”

AFI announced its 21 honorees last month, with 10 films and 10 TV shows cited as “outstanding creative endeavors” during 2016; there was also one special award, to Espn Films’ “O.J.: Made in America.” The big winners, with three apiece, were Paramount (“Arrival,” “Fences,” and “Silence”), FX (“The Americans,” “Atlanta,” and “The People v.

Westworld” and “Stranger Things” both broke into the drama series race. The two will contend for the prize at the Jan. 28 ceremony against HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the reigning Emmy winner for drama series and the PGA’s 2016 pick, AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”

Atlanta” was the sole newbie in the comedy series heat.

Better Call Saul Season 3 Promo: There’s A Fine Line Between Criminal And Lawyer

5 January 2017 8:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Con artist. Trickster. Criminal. Lawyer? Whatever moniker you ascribe to Bob Odenkirk’s dastardly hustler, few TV characters hold a candle to Jimmy McGill. Across two fairly successful seasons of Better Call Saul, viewers have become acquainted with Odenkirk’s bumbling lawman in his rise to prominence, and though it’s unlikely to ever reach the dizzying heights of its forebear, Breaking Bad, AMC’s prequel spinoff series boasts all of Vince Gilligan’s arresting hallmarks – multi-layered storytelling, flashforwards, and a whole heap of nail-biting drama.

As we teeter on the brink of the show’s third season, AMC is beginning to ramp up its marketing push for Better Call Saul season 3, beginning with Odenkirk’s criminal/lawyer posing for a mugshot. A sullen, downbeat expression indicates that Slippin’ Jimmy has once again found himself in the eye of the storm, with all signs pointing to a fallout between him and his older sibling, »
