Homeland season 4 trailer debuts

10 September 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Season Three available to buy in stores and online now (read our review here), many fans will be reaquainting themselves with Homeland in the coming weeks before the new season premieres on Showtime at the end of the month. And, from the first look at the show in this first full trailer, it looks like fans will be in for a treat.

Picking up after the devastating finale when Brody was killed, the new season sees Carrie (Claire Danes) overseeing the CIA operations in Pakistan after a drone strike goes horribly wrong with devastating consequences. The new station Chief (Corey Stoll, House of Cards) is under investigation, as is Senator Andrew Lockhart (Tracey Letts), both of whom may have known about the drone strike.

Joining the cast is Life of Pi star Suraj Sharma, as well as the returning Letts, Nazanin Boniadi, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham and, of course, »

Extended Homeland Season 4 Trailer Goes Deeper into the Upcoming Drama

10 September 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Showtime has released yet another new Homeland Season 4 trailer, making it at least the third look at the upcoming season after a “first look” trailer and a teaser trailer.  This time we get a bigger chunk of footage though, and it definitely looks more “broad” than in seasons past (or maybe that’s just the inane profanity bleeps peppered throughout the trailer).  I know I was growing tired of the Brody stuff, but now I wonder if I’m growing tired of the show’s histrionics in general? Hit the jump to check out the new Homeland Season 4 trailer.  The show stars Claire Danes, Corey Stoll, Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend and Suraj SharmaHomeland returns to Showtime with a two-hour season premiere on October 5th. Is it just me or does all of the bleeped cursing feel about 20 years behind the curve?  It looks like they're trying to sell the "adultness" of the show, »

Mandy Patinkin at ‘Homeland’ Premiere: ‘Our Job Is to Be Poets’

5 September 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the premiere of “Homeland” approaches, conflict and terrorism in the Middle East once again dominate the headlines.

The horrors of beheadings of journalists and other acts by the militant Islamist org Isis are very much on the minds of the show’s writing staff, showrunner Alex Gansa said Thursday night during the show’s premiere screening at the Public Theater’s Library.

Gansa admitted that he’s not entirely sure how the show should handle the latest developments in the real-world drama of terrorism.

“What’s going on in the world right now is so terrifying,” Gansa told Variety. “After (journalist) James Foley was killed we all sat in the story room and just looked at each other. ‘Homeland’ occupies a unique place right now in television in that we have an opportunity to either comment or not comment about what’s happening in the world as we speak »

Madhur Mittal interview: 'Jon Hamm is one of the best co-stars I've had'

29 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mad Men's Jon Hamm stars in Disney baseball drama Million Dollar Arm, based on the true story of a sports agent who staged a reality TV show to find baseball talent in India.

The movie sees Jb Bernstein (Hamm) discover Indian pitchers Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma), after 40,000 contestants audition with their transferable cricket skills.

Million Dollar Arm review: Jon Hamm in warm, witty baseball drama

Best known for playing the role of Salim Malik in the Danny Boyle hit Slumdog Millionaire, Mittal is a fast-bowling cricket player in the Walt Disney project.

Director Craig Gillespie helmed the project, which was filmed in Mumbai and Atlanta in 2013.

In an interview with Digital Spy, producer Mark Ciardi described the origins of the story.

"I knew Jb well before I was involved in the film," he explained. "I ran into him in 2007 at a function, asked him what he was doing. »

Million Dollar Arm Review

29 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm is a heart-warming and well-told tale that remains appealing in spite of its unsubtlety, and you certainly don’t have to be a baseball fan to enjoy it.

Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm focuses on J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a floundering sports agent who is in desperate need of a big signing. Late night channel-flipping between a cricket match and Susan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ brings inspiration (as it so often does) and soon Bernstein is journeying to India to host a talent competition that will determine which would-be cricketers have the best chance at being groomed into baseball players. Returning to America with the contest winners Rinku Singh (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) in tow, the two prospects soon begin training under unorthodox coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), but have »

Million Dollar Arm Review

29 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Craig Gillespie.

Cast: Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Aasif Mandvi, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Madhur Mittal, Suraj Sharma, Allyn Rachel.

Certificate: PG.

Running Time: 124 minutes.

Synopsis: A twenty-something comedienne’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to confront the realities of independent womanhood for the first time.

Jon Hamm continues an incredibly lingering transition to the big screen with Disney’s American hit Million Dollar Arm, part sports drama, part romance, part fish-out-of-water comedy which combines to make up what is essentially a biographical rags-to-riches tale.

Tracking the story of sports agent Jb Bernstein (Hamm) and an innovative idea which takes him to India (via a path of self-enlightenment and Britain’s Got Talent), we are introduced to his tough-to-like cynic who, whilst residing in a pristine apartment decorated with a flash car on the drive, spends his days dating models, soullessly shunning hellos from Lake Bell’s kooky tenant, Brenda.

With this being Disney, »

Million Dollar Arm review: Jon Hamm in warm, witty baseball drama

27 August 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director Craig Gillespie; Screenwriter Thomas McCarthy; Starring: Jon Hamm, Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal, Lake Bell, Alan Arkin; Running time: 124 mins; Certificate: PG

In between Mad Men seasons, Jon Hamm has understandably steered away from roles that could be seen as riffs on the Don Draper persona - he'll pop up as the sleazy booty call in Bridesmaids, or the dangerously dumb Dr Drew in 30 Rock. But the affable Million Dollar Arm opens with Hamm's sports agent Jb Bernstein practising his smooth, confident pitch for a prospective new client.

This might be in the ballpark of the Draper hard sell, but here nobody's buying it. Bernstein's independent management company has hit the skids, with most of their star players now past their prime, and behind the slick exterior lies desperation: he urgently needs to sign new star talent in order to turn things around. So begins a true story which Thomas McCarthy »

Jon Hamm talks Million Dollar Arm

25 August 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The UK release of Million Dollar Arm is just few days away and actor Jon Hamm took some time from his busy agenda last week to come to London to promote the film and we were there. Clad in a casual outfit and wearing a deliberately scruffy beard, the actor of Mad Men received the press in a hotel of Central London to talk about the film, his character and much more!

Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm tells the story of J.B. Bernstein, played by Hamm, a sports agent whose career is going through a bad patch. His business is declining and he has just lost the opportunity to sign a celebrity sportsman. In a last move to save his career, he decides to travel to India in the search for young cricketers that can become baseball players. J.B. sets up a talent contest, “The »

*** Competition Closed *** Win Tickets To The Gala Screening Of ‘Million Dollar Arm’

19 August 2014 1:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm is an inspirational and uplifting journey packed with funny moments which celebrates teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family. With business failing, struggling Us sports agent Jb Bernstein (Jon Hamm) travels to India in a last ditch effort to save his career by finding a young cricketer to turn into a major sports star. With the help of a cantankerous retired talent scout (Alan Arkin) Jb sets up a national contest called “The Million Dollar Arm” and discovers Rinku (played by Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh (Slumdog Millionaire’s Madhur Mittal), two 18-year-old boys who have a knack for throwing a fastball.

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.

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? »
