Poster and trailer for Billions season 2

16 December 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Billions set to return this February, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for the second season of Showtime’s drama series which you can check out below…

Season 2 picks up immediately after the season one finale, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis), scorching the earth in a costly war for personal domination. It’s law versus money, with power, sex, and the soul of New York in the balance. Maggie Siff stars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck’s estranged wife and the top performance coach in the hedge fund world. Malin Akerman plays Lara Axelrod, Axe’s fiercely loyal and street-smart wife. Season two finds the characters vying for control in a changing world that presents an existential threat. For all of them, it’s a choice between evolution and extinction. Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile »

The War Between Axe And Chuck Continues In First Billions Season 2 Trailer And Poster

15 December 2016 7:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first season of Billions wrapped up with both Axe (Damian Lewis) and Chuck (Paul Giamatti) on the warpath against each other, and it’s been announced today that the series will return to Showtime on February 19th. With that, comes a very tense new trailer and a poster teasing the downfall of…well, someone.

With both men willing to sacrifice nearly everything they hold dear to take the other down, it’s impossible to say which of them could be about to fall, but based on what we see in this trailer, it’s not just Axe’s business practices they’ll clash over. Once again, it looks like Wendy will come between them, but it appears as if she’s happy embarking on her own path in life now.

For more on what to expect from Billions, here’s the newly released synopsis:

Money Monster review

George Clooney stars and Jodie Foster directs: here's our review of Money Monster...

“We don’t do gotcha journalism here,” says TV executive producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) near the beginning of Money Monster, before wearily adding, “We don’t do journalism, period.”

Taking Network and Dog Day Afternoon as reference points, the new film by Jodie Foster uses a straightforward thriller format to examine the loss of trust between the powerful, the powerless and the media in recent times. It's less mischievous about it than Adam McKay's The Big Short, which sustained its articulate rage about the financial crisis to devastating comedic effect, but as the above line suggests, it's also accordingly more multiplex-friendly in its satirical leanings.

Money Monster is the live cable show presented by financial guru Lee Gates (George Clooney), who pitches himself as an entertainer rather than a journalist, much to Patty's frustration. »

Foster's Socially Conscious Wall Street Hostage Thriller Suffers from Triteness, Dishonesty

13 May 2016 6:57 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Money Monster' with George Clooney and Jack O'Connell: TV celebrity and unwise investor/hostage taker. 'Money Monster' review: Jodie Foster movie suffers from both qualitative and intellectual disconnect Sometimes there's a difference between what a movie thinks it is and what it actually is. Usually it's a qualitative disconnect, as in “this movie thinks it's exciting but it's actually boring” or “this movie assumes Kevin Hart is funny when, in fact, he's not.” In the case of Money Monster, the divide is also an intellectual versus anti-intellectual one. The fourth film directed by Jodie Foster fancies itself a ripped from the headlines wail from the bottom of the economic ladder. A thriller-cum-exposé into how Wall Street and big media suckered average Americans into following the Pied Pipers of TV's financial punditry class over the cliff into economic ruin. However, the movie we're really getting is »

Movie Review – Money Monster (2016)

13 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Money Monster, 2016.

Directed by Jodie Foster.

Starring George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Caitriona Balfe, Giancarlo Esposito, Christopher Denham, Emily Meade, and Dominic West.

Synopsis:

The presenter and producer of a flamboyant financial news TV show find themselves in a hostage situation when a young, working class investor decides to take revenge for the tumbling share price of a major corporation.

George Clooney makes for a good smart-ass. He’s charismatic, is apparently the nicest guy in Hollywood (anyone that knocks out David O’ Russell on the set of a movie in defense of his constant mistreating and verbal emotional abuse towards his actors on set, deserves some kind of award), and has an undeniable charm despite never shutting up. All of this naturally makes for an interesting hostage situation dynamic in Money Monster, where his indirect lies as a television host offering up advice on the stock market »

Film Review: Approach of ‘Money Monster’ is Pure Fraud

12 May 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In our society there is one eternal truth…the rich will Always win, that’s one of the reasons that they are rich. So when “Money Monster” attempts to take them down a peg with a ridiculous fantasy story, it’s as fraudulent as what they think they’re bringing down. An oligarch watches this, and laughs at us.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

What was surprising, and distressing, was that George Clooney was involved in this project. He has made reliably stick-it-to-the-man films for years (“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The American”), but in this one he doesn’t have a character, or at least a character that has a placeholder in reality. Everything else is just window dressing – the direction from Jodie Foster, the horrid screenplay by three writers. and a throwaway role for Julia Roberts that someone like Téa Leoni could have done, and that »

Jodie Foster’s “Money Monster” is a populist thrill ride

12 May 2016 5:18 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

To this day, it still bugs me that more people didn’t give Jodie Foster’s previous directorial outing The Beaver a chance. I can understand why it was shunned, having had the misfortune of being released at the height of star Mel Gibson’s unpopularity, but still. Foster and the film deserved better. Now, she seeks at the very least some box office redemption with Money Monster, a high profile thriller. Debuting earlier today at the Cannes Film Festival, I’ve already seen the movie and can vouch for it as a solid outing by Foster. It doesn’t really break any new ground, but it’s entertaining, which certainly counts for something. You’ll see what I mean later this week, when the flick hits theaters. The movie is a financial thriller of sorts, set within the world of a hostage situation. Lee Gates (George Clooney) is the »
