“Ballers” premieres on June 21 after season two of “True Detective” and before the debut of another freshman series, “The Brink.”

HBO has already created a lot of buzz this week with the much-anticipated season premiere of Game of Thrones coming this Sunday and its release of a new trailer for True Detective’s second season. Now the network has unveiled the first trailer for its new Dwayne Johnson-led series Ballers, which appears to be a hybrid of Any Given Sunday, Entourage, and Friday Night Lights. The 30-minute dramedy will begin its 10-episode run in June.
The Miami-set show will center on a former football superstar (Johnson) who reinvents himself after retirement by mentoring current and former players on the art of surviving the business of football. The series also stars Rob Corddry, Rmar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, Arielle Kebble, and John David Washington, who is a former college football player and the son of Denzel Washington.

HBO has released the first trailer for its upcoming summer series Ballers, starring Dwayne Johnson in his first major TV role. Ballers Season 1, which will span 10 episodes, debuts Sunday, June 21 at 10 Pm Et, following the Season 2 premiere of True Detective at 9 Pm Et. Dwayne Johnson stars as a former pro football player, which is fitting since, before his WWE and his acting days, he played college football at the University of Miami.
Ballers examines the lives of former and current football players. The show follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football, although he is now struggling in his new career as a financial advisor. In his new role, he tries to advise his NFL friends financially and professionally, but identifies with the trials they are »
After releasing the first trailer for new comedy The Brink this morning, HBO has now unveiled the first Ballers trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming series. Created and executive produced by Steve Levinson (Entourage, Boardwalk Empire), the show stars Johnson as a former football superstar who gets his life on track in retirement by mentoring other current players. The show very much looks to have a strong Entourage vibe, making swell use of its Miami location and ensemble cast. The main draw here is that Dwayne Johnson has his own TV series, so that’s reason enough to tune in. Though it’s a half-hour series, it looks like Ballers will also delve into a bit of drama—that’s not uncommon at HBO, though, where only 50% of its “comedies” are straight-up comedies. The series also boasts Friday Night Lights alum and feature film director Peter Berg as an executive producer alongside Mark Wahlberg, »

The series’ executive producers include Johnson, his “Pain & Gain” costar Mark Wahlberg, Steve Levinson and Berg, who directed the pilot.

Johnson’s character may be retired, but the show will feature flashbacks with him in uniform and unleashing pain on unsuspecting quarterbacks. Also Read: Dwayne. »

If the words “Ball Juice” and “Hot Tub” get you all excited, then you’re in for a treat with the sequel nobody asked for. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has arrived, in what is obvious glitch in the space time continuum. The movie continues more or less where the original left off with our hapless fuck wits being incredibly successful and wealthy, after changing history in the last movie. Craig Robinson, Clarke Duke and Rob Corddry all reprise their roles with the obvious exception of John Cusack who appears in a photograph only. Robinson’s character Nick, is after recording every huge pop track in history and taking all the credit, and Lou (Corddry) has invented Lougle, with Jacob (Duke) being his long suffering son of sorts. When Lou finds himself in a spot of bother, the unlikely trio find themselves once again time travelling in a hot tub »

Not so much a movie as a mismatched mix of dick jokes and rampant homophobia. I’m kidding: There aren’t any actual jokes here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It’s not so much a movie as a collection of dick jokes and — and this is mildly interesting, in a way psychologically revealing of the creators — rampant homophobia, as if what we’re intended to hear is “Hey! You! Look at my penis! Unless you’re a dude, that would be gross.” Or maybe it’s “My penis is awesome! But not in a gay way!” Wait, I lie: There aren’t any actual jokes in Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Scenes sort of ramble on for long, humor-free minutes, getting nowhere near a joke, or even near the setup for a potential punchline. »

2010's Hot Tub Time Machine came as a pleasant surprise. What looked like a dreadful frat-boy comedy with a silly premise was actually a genuinely funny and (at times) clever sci-fi comedy. It was only a matter of time for a sequel to be made, but has it come five years too late?
The sequel picks up where the first instalment left off, in a fantasy world where Lou (Rob Corddry) invented Google and Nick (Craig Robinson) has ripped off loads of pop songs years before they were meant to come out.
Sadly, John Cusack sat this one out as Adam, which is a shame as he brought a certain essence of seniority and was the gang's de facto leader. Without him there is a small void and the three main »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Louis C.K. was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon discussed some personal history. Apparently Jimmy forgot, but he auditioned for Louis when Louis was the head writer for "The Dana Carvey Show" in the '90s. They were auditioning people to be in the cast and Jimmy came in - this adorable little boy (as Louis recalled). Jimmy played his guitar and had little troll dolls, then turned and wiggled his tight little a**. Jimmy argued that he definitely didn't turn and wiggle his butt several times. When the names came up for casting, all the women in the staff argued for Jimmy but Louis and »

I'm not too sure there was even a demand for a sequel to 2010's Hot Tub Time Machine. That film was a modern throwback to the raunchy comedies of the 1980s, punctuated by the fact that the lead characters, played by John Cusack, Clark Duke, Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson all were thrust back in time to 1986 so Cusack's character could find himself. At it's core -- amidst all the toilet humor -- was a story with some heart and it surprisingly worked.
Now, five years later, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is here and while the humor is still spot on, the heart is nowhere to be found. Cusack wisely opted to not reprise his role, and Adam Scott (TVs Parks And Recreation) stepped in as a new character. The plot revolves around Lou (Corddry), after using the time machine to become a billionaire, getting shot in the...uh. »
