The promos for Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama keeping getting more and more powerful.

The first full trailer shows Mark Ruffalo, his onscreen partner Matt Bomer and Julia Roberts fight to raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic in New York City in the early 1980s.

'The Normal Heart' Trailer: Mark Ruffalo Speaks Out (Video)

14 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A big mouth isn't always a problem; sometimes, it can be the solution.

That's the theme running through the trailer for the upcoming HBO film, "The Normal Heart." Directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy from a play by Larry Kramer, the movie chronicles the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s.

"The Normal Heart" covers a similar timeframe as the Oscar-nominated "Dallas Buyers Club," but focuses on a gay man (Mark Ruffalo) who becomes an activist. He teams up with a doctor (Julia Roberts) to raise awareness and lobby politicians to care about.

Ruffalo is all fire and passion, while Roberts is the cool, no-nonsense physician. And they're just two members of a sterling cast, which also includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. We have a feeling this will rake in the awards come Emmy time.

"The Normal Heart" premieres May 25 on HBO.

Watch The Trailer For HBO Films TV Drama Feature ‘The Normal Heart’

18 April 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last Year, HBO Films brought us the superb Behind The Candelabra, a film that was released theatrically in the UK, and one that went on to be nominated for a BAFTA. In 2014, the celebrated cable network is releasing Ryan Murphy’s TV movie The Normal Heart, which will almost certainly get a cinema bow overseas as well, and possibly grab some awards attention come next year too.

The film, written by Larry Kramer, based on his Tony award winning play of the same name, tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and the gay activist (played by Mark Ruffalo), who attempts to raise awareness of it.

Ruffalo joins Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts in the superb cast of this film, Murphy’s first feature since the Roberts vehicle Eat, Pray, Love.

Check out the first trailer for the film, »

Denis O'Hare Reveals Who His 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Character

18 April 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's pretty much nothing but question marks when it comes to the next season of "American Horror Story." We know that it will have the ominous subtitle "Freak Show," that it will be set in the fifties, and that much of the cast of the previous seasons (including Jessica Lange, supposedly in her last go-around) will return. But Vulture was able to get some details out of returning costar Denis O'Hare... Sort of.

He told the site that while last season he was hopelessly in love with Lange, this season their relationship will be altogether different. "I'm going to be working at cross-purposes with her," O'Hare explained. "We'll have lots of scenes with each other, but we'll be battling." The actor, who played the mute butler Spaulding on last year's smash "American Horror Story: Coven," also says that he'll be around in all 10 episodes of the next season, and where »

Full Trailer for Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart Starring Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, and Julia Roberts

18 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released a new, full-length The Normal Heart trailer for director Ryan Murphy’s (Glee, American Horror Story) adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Larry Kramer stage play.  The film follows the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and it looks at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.  Though Murphy is a bit hit and miss (his last two films were Running with Scissors and Eat, Pray, Love), I’m encouraged by The Normal Heart’s stellar ensemble cast and the fact that Kramer penned the screenplay.  Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch, in particular, look to be standouts, and the tone feels reminiscent of the heartwrenching documentary How to Survive a Plague, in which Kramer plays an integral role.

Watch: New Trailer For HBO's 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Battles The Establishment

Okay, so "The Normal Heart" didn't make the Cannes Film Festival lineup like I figured it would, but that doesn't mean we're not putting this one on our watch list for next month. A new trailer is here to remind you why you might want to tune into HBO in May to watch something other than "Game Of Thrones."  Directed by Ryan Murphy, starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons, and based on the play by Larry Kramer, the film chronciles the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, with doctors and activists trying to raise awareness about the disease, fighting against an indifferent medical community and politicians who won't come near the cause. Potent stuff, and it'll be a tricky balance to get across the drama without tipping too far into histrionics. But this is the kind of »

We've already seen a few preview clips for "The Normal Heart," the HBO film based on the Tony-Award winning play by Larry Kramer about the HIV/AIDS crisis that hits New York in the early 1980s, but a full length trailer has just arrived. Directed by Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "Glee"), "The Normal Heart" stars Mark Ruffalo as a gay-American man who tries to combat the lack of knowledge regarding the disease, which is seen as a "gay epidemic" by the public after it's first discovered. In the trailer below, we see Ruffalo desperately try to rally the masses, including his partner (Matt Bomer), brother (Alfred Molina), and friends. "The Normal Heart" looks to be a heartbreaking story about a period in our history that was shrouded in chaos and doubt. The cast, which includes Taylor Kitsch, Julia Roberts and Jonathan Groff, should help. Read More: With No 'Normal Heart, »

Final season of Glee will see big changes

17 April 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Fox series Glee has gone through a lot over the past year or so. Series regular Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, sadly died last July and the series has seen record lows in its ratings over this past season. However, the show still has one final season after its current season and creator Ryan Murphy plans on some changes.

Next season will see the show move away from its New York setting and will also jump in time. Murphy hasn’t revealed where the new setting will be but it certainly won’t take place in New York or Lima, where the show started out. He also hasn’t revealed how long of a jump in time there will be but the current season’s finale will apparently have something big happen that sets things up for the final season.

It would seem that the show was probably »
