‘The New Pope’ First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Bring Religious Power Back to HBO
Jude Law and John Malkovich join forces as two religious powerhouses in the first look at HBO’s “The New Pope.” The limited series is Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino’s follow-up to “The Young Pope,” which earned critical acclaim when it debuted on HBO in January 2017. Sorrentino is once again directing all eight episodes of the series and co-wrote the scripts with Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises.

While HBO has debuted our first look at “The New Pope” above, the network is not giving any plot details away. Whether or not “The New Pope” is a continuation of the story in “The Young Pope” has yet to be confirmed, although the official photo suggests that’s the case as it features Jude Law looking very much like his original character Lenny Belardo/Pope Pius Xiii. John Malkovich’s casting was confirmed in July 2018, and the legendary actor is expected to

The New Pope First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Make Quite a Papal Pair

His Holiness… es?

HBO has graced us with our first look at The New Pope, a sequel series to the 2017 miniseries The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law as brash fictional pontiff Lenny, aka Pope Pius Xiii. Based on the new photo above, Law will reprise his role as Lenny in the eight-episode series, joined by new cast addition John Malkovich. HBO is mum on Malkovich’s New Pope role, but judging by his pristine vestments and skullcap — not to mention the series title — we’re betting he’s Lenny replacement in the Vatican. (The Young Pope‘s finale ended with Lenny collapsing,

A first-look image of Paolo Sorrentino’s TV series “The New Pope” has been released showing John Malkovich and Jude Law both wearing papal vestments, which appears to confirm rumors that Malkovich will play the new pontiff. The show is currently shooting in Venice.

Details are being kept under wraps about their roles in the limited eight-episode series, which is not, strictly speaking, a second season of “The Young Pope.”

The New Pope: First Image From HBO's Young Pope Sequel Series

Joseph Baxter Jan 9, 2019

The New Pope, HBO’s sequel series to The Young Pope, will see return Jude Law joined by co-star John Malkovich.

While HBO’s 2016 series The Young Pope was intended as a limited series prestige project from BAFTA-winning director Paolo Sorrentino, plans subsequently emerged for a follow-up series, titled The New Pope. Indeed, the follow up series will showcase a new pope, since HBO has sent white smoke signals of confirmation for Oscar-winning actor John Malkovich.

John Malkovich was revealed as the star of HBO’s The New Pope back in July. While the details of Malkovich’s character were not provided (and remain scarce as of this January 9 update), the very title of the follow-up series does little to hide the fate of said character. While the title, The New Pope, has been known for over a year, having arrived quickly after The Young Pope completed its run,

After winning the Palme d’Or for his latest drama Shoplifters (our review), the always-prolific Hirokazu Kore-eda is already embarking on his next project, and it’s perhaps fitting after his win on the Croisette that he’ll be directing two of France’s greatest stars. Last month it was confirmed that Juliette Binoche and Catherine Deneuve would be leading his new feature, and now a title, synopsis, and additional cast & crew have been unveiled.

Titled The Truth About Catherine, actress Ludivine Sagnier, has also joined the film, which marks Kore-eda’s first film set outside Japan and it will be shot by cinematographer Eric Gautier, who most recently worked on Jia Zhangke’s stellar Cannes premiere Ash Is Purest White.

The 25 Best French Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Amélie’ to ‘Cache’
Cinema was one of the truly international phenomenons of the last millennium, but France — more so than any other nation — has always been one of the medium’s most essential guiding lights. From the pioneer era of the Lumiere brothers, to the revolutionary New Wave that expanded our understanding of film’s potential, to the country’s recent defense of the theatrical experience, France has always pushed the movies forward while reminding us what we love about them in the first place. No country did more to help propel cinema into the 20th Century, and no country has done more to help sustain its integrity and its potential in the 21st.

From sultry thrillers to mind-blowing 3D experiments and one of the most heartbreakingly honest love stories ever told, these are the 25 best French films of the 21st Century.

‘The Young Pope’: How Jude Law Went Weird with Paolo Sorrentino for His Best Work In Years
Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception.

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise.

Today's 5: Mother... Father... girl in the pit...

Five mood boosting assignments culled from showbiz anniversaries today. Try these exercizes at home won't you, and report back? Nobody does but I'm dying to hear stories on how it went!
