Carrie Gets Back to Work in New Homeland Season 4 Trailer

18 August 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Showtime has released a new Homeland Season 4 trailer, giving fans another tease of what to expect when the drama series returns in October.  This trailer actually reveals less about the new season than the previous “first look” trailer, and it has a listlessness to it that likely mirrors Carrie’s (Claire Danes) state of mind when we pick back up with the character after the events of Season 3.  After driving through more story in three seasons than most shows do in their entire runs, it feels like Homeland has the opportunity to reboot a bit this year, and I’m curious to see where that takes Carrie, Saul (Mandy Patinkin), and whoever else remains. Hit the jump to watch the new Homeland Season 4 trailer.  This season also features Rupert Friend, Corey Stoll, and Suraj SharmaHomeland returns to Showtime with back-to-back episodes on October 5th.

First trailer for Homeland season 4

21 July 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Showtime have released the first trailer and poster for the upcoming fourth Season of it’s highly acclaimed politically driven drama Homeland and it looks bloody awesome. Claire Danes is back as the bipolar CIA agent on the edge Carrie Mathison, but this time she’ll be in Pakistan doing what she does best.

Season 4 is said to be radically different from the previous three, with Mathison returning to her field work – as teased early on in Season 1 – and according to The Wrap Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins is urging fans of the show to reconsider what they once thought the show was about. Mandy Patinkin’s Saul Berenson is also set to have a more central role this time around. Rupert Friend will return joined by new faces Corey Stoll (House of Cards) and Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi).

We’d have to agree with the tagline, there really is no place like Homeland. »

Check Out Action-Packed First Trailer For Homeland Season 4

19 July 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Showtime’s Homeland will be hitting the creative reset button when it returns for its fourth season this fall. Gone are Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), his wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) and definitely his daughter Dana (Morgan Saylor), who for some reason became one of the most widely hated characters on the ‘net throughout the spy drama’s first three seasons. Now, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), still grieving Brody’s death, has otherwise put her life back together and is working as a case officer in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Of course, because this show is called Homeland, Carrie uncovers a possible terrorist plot and leaps into action. She’s not going at it alone, though – season four will introduce new characters played by Corey Stoll and Suraj Sharma. Additionally, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend are returning as Carrie’s former mentor Saul Berenson and former ally Peter Quinn, who still has feelings for Carrie, »

"Homeland" S4 Premiere Date & New Trailer

18 July 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Showtime has announced that the upcoming fourth season of "Homeland" is scheduled to premiere on the network on October 5th. Much of the setting this time around sees Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison in Pakistan, though the production actually moved to South Africa for the shoot (the previous three seasons were primarily filmed in North Carolina).

The network has also released some promo art and a new trailer. In the preview, there's glimpses of new faces joining the cast including Corey Stoll, Raza Jeffrey, Suraj Sharma and Akshay Kumar along with returning supporting cast members like Rupert Friend, Mandy Patinkin and F. Murray Abraham.

Speaking at the TCA's, showrunner/executive producer Alex Gansa admits the critical slings and lack of awards recognition for the troubled third season "hurt," but they are "going to get back on the mountain again." One immediate move that's going to help? "Dana Brody will not be back for Season 4". Another? »

First Homeland Season 4 Trailer: Carrie Shifts Her Focus to Pakistan

18 July 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Showtime has released the first Homeland season 4 trailer, offering a glimpse at how the drama series plans to continue after the events of the season 3 finale.  Homeland has always been a quick-to-evolve show, running through about three seasons worth of material in its first 12 episodes.  Though the quality of the subsequent episodes failed to match that blissful first run, showrunners Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa have never been afraid to swing for the fences.  This debut trailer actually offers up a hefty amount of footage from season 4, promising that we’ll get to see Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison working extensively in Pakistan this time around.  The addition of Corey Stoll and Life of Pi star Suraj Sharma to the cast is encouraging too, so hopefully the significant story shift makes for some interesting new character dynamics. Hit the jump to watch the Homeland season 4 trailer.  The series also stars Mandy Patinkin, »

11 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Showtime’s Homeland is preparing for its most impossible mission yet: Executing a total creative overhaul for its upcoming fourth season. You already know (Spoiler Alert: if you haven’t watched season 3, stop reading) that Damian Lewis exited the espionage thriller when his traitor-ish character Nicholas Brody was hanged in the season 3 finale. Coping with the loss of the show’s leading man is difficult enough, but Homeland will use Brody’s departure to radically shake up the show in other ways, too, with a new setting (Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison is working in Pakistan and Afghanistan) and several cast additions (including Corey Stoll, »

A WWII Hero Is Unbroken In Second Trailer For Angelina Jolie’s Oscar Contender

10 July 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Louis Zamperini, former Olympic distance runner and WWII prisoner-of-war survivor, died at the age of 97 on July 2nd, his passing was marked by heartfelt obituaries and an outpouring of public recognition of the man’s inspirational life and unbroken warrior spirit. This winter, however, the most rousing and wide-reaching tribute to Zamperini will arrive with the December release of Unbroken, an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s book from In the Land of Blood and Honey director Angelina Jolie.

A second trailer for Unbroken has hit the web today, making a strong case for the WWII survival epic as one of the big players in this year’s awards race. Impressively mounted and featuring what’s sure to be a star-making turn from Jack O’Connell, Unbroken checks almost all the boxes. It’s emotional, scripted by Oscar faves the Coen Brothers, based on a true story of American heroism, »
