One of the feature Tiff films that I’m most looking forward to seeing is Love is All You Need director Susanne Bier’s thriller A Second Chance. Last month we posted the trailer which was gripping, tense and dour (in a good way). As I said then, this project looks like a little bit of a twist on Gone Baby Gone (also a good thing) in that it explores thematic elements that could be seen as a counterpoint to that film. Now we have a series of five clips, totaling eight minutes of the film, that flesh about the characters a bit. The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Ulrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear. Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance clips. We also have new images from the film. »

Tying down the latest movies from three rising names in filmmaking from the Americas, Spain’s San Sebastian Festival has added to its main competition Canadian Maxime Giroux’s “Felix and Meira,” Chilean Cristian Jimenez’s “Voiceover” and Argentine Anahi Berneri’s “Open Air.”
The return to feature films of Quebec-based Giroux (“Jo for Jonathan”), “Felix” turns on the amour fou between a penniless eccentric Francophone and a married Hasidic Jewish mother.
Seen in preliminary rough cut at Miami’s Encuentros in March, “Voiceover” is an ambitious step up for Jimenez. Set in the small town of Valdivia, southern Chile – a place where everybody knows what everyone else is doing, although they won’t always recognize that – “Voiceover” bristles with characters and side-stories while portraying a family and its myriad multifarious members.

Today’s Tiff announcement marked the arrival of a new film from director Susanne Bier (Love Is All You Need), the thriller A Second Chance. And now a trailer has hit online. This movie looks really good at first glance, very tense and dour (and a little bit like a twist on some of the themes of Gone Baby Gone). The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Ulrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear. Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance trailer along with a few debut images.

A new film from Susanne Bier is always something to look forward to, but it's a little surprising the film chosen to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival is A Second Chance (En chance til) and not Serena as this is now Bier's second film to be released since Serena (which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper) completed filming. Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ("Game of Thrones") and Ulrich Thomsen, Second Chance asks How far are decent human beings willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjustc Written by Bier's frequent screenwriting collaborator, Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better World), this drama is about how easily we lose our grasp on justice when confronted with the unthinkable, and life as we know it hangs by a thread. Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen co-star. Check out the trailer below. sb id="963485" height »

Even though it will be about a year before Banshee returns to Cinemax for Season 3, the creative team is already hard at work on writing the scripts. While some questions have been answered and some relationships were resolved, there are plenty of new questions and new story threads to be explored. So, while you’re waiting to see how it all plays out next, Collider spoke to show creator/writer/executive producer Jonathan Tropper and director/executive producer Greg Yaitanes to get hints about what to expect from Season 3. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Jonathan Tropper and Greg Yaitanes talked about how satisfied they were with the results of Season 2, why they wanted closure with the Rabbit (Ben Cross) plotline, that we can expect to see Fat Au (Eddie Cooper) again, the ongoing battle between Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) and Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), why Emmett’s »

The Cinemax drama series Banshee is wrapping up its second season (and thankfully has already been picked up for a third), as Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who has assumed the identity of the town sheriff, continues to attempt to find a balance between his own criminal activities and solving crimes in a town with more bad elements than any one person can keep track of. It’s intense, violent and bad-ass, but it’s also one of the most fun roller-coaster rides on television. The show also stars Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, Demetrius Grosse, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Lili Simmons, Antony Ruivivar and Odette Annable. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how tough this show was to shoot, how she feels Season 2 compared to Season 1, what it’s been like to hear feedback from fans, »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 9 – “Homecoming”
Written by Jonathan Tropper
Directed by Greg Yaitanes
Airs Friday nights at 10 Cinemax
At the risk of digression, it’s worth pointing out how Banshee is in a similar situation right now to where The Walking Dead was a few months ago. The insanely popular zombie series had a third season building up to a confrontation that never really happened or resolved, and it wasn’t until the midseason finale of the current season that some conclusiveness was brought to that part of the story. Banshee didn’t, by any means, thoroughly disappoint viewers in the same way with the Rabbit confrontation last year. That battle did take place and our heroes technically beat the Ukrainian crime lord. It might have been the youth of the series that helped decide it was best to not let Rabbit die, though, so that he could wreak some more havoc on our protagonists. »

First off, if you're not watching Banshee (Friday, 10/9c), fix that. The show is badass in ways we can't even describe on this site. Secondly, if you are into Cinemax's action drama about Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con posing as the sheriff in the country's most messed up Amish town, then this exclusive clip from this week's episode is relevant to your interests. Especially for those of you wondering how Hood plans to bring down brutal crime lord Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen). Looks like a simple search warrant and a secret room could finally reveal the bloody truth about Banshee, Pa's slaughterhouse bigwig.
