Trust: new trailer for Danny Boyle's series

Joseph Baxter Nick Harley Kirsten Howard Jan 10, 2018

Danny Boyle’s new crime series, Trust, focuses on the Getty kidnapping. An impressive cast has been assembled...

FX recently expanded its prestige drama lineup with Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s new anthology series, titled Trust. This particular offering dramatises one of the most intriguing public criminal incidents of recent history with the ransom-seeking kidnapping of curly-locked young heir John Paul Getty III, which shockingly resulted in apparent indifference and noncompliance from the family patriarch.

While this story might ring familiar to those who caught All the Money In The World, the latest film from director Ridley Scott, expect this limited series to delve deeper into the Getty calamity.

A new trailer for the series has just arrived. Take a look...

Trust release date

Trust is set to debut in the Us on 25th March. We'll bring you the UK broadcast details when we have them.

HBO Films Redefined the TV Movie — Now It’s Poised to Redefine Itself

694 nominations. 162 wins.

No network has so dominated a category at the Emmy Awards as HBO has TV movies. Its unprecedented run dates back to 1993 with a double win for “Barbarians at the Gate” and “Stalin”; since then, it’s lost just four times.

This year, it has two high-profile contenders — “The Wizard of Lies,” starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” headlined by Oprah Winfrey — as part of the cabler’s overall 111 nominations. Poised to play spoiler are a new iteration of PBS’ “Sherlock” (which won last year) and the “San Junipero” episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror.”

“If you look at the category, we know there are a lot of things that maybe aren’t necessarily movies,” says HBO Films president Len Amato, a not-so-thinly veiled slight against the stand-alone episode of “Black Mirror.” “But we just continue to play our game.”

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 9 Review: How to Live

  • TVfanatic
Choosing sides may be necessary, but it's also not without consequences.

Daliyah's in jail, Fauzi's in exile, and Leila's staring down an army. Nafisa's having a breakdown, Molly's lost her damn mind, and Ahmed and Sammy are taking the idea of sibling rivalry to new levels.

All while Barry desperately tries to assert his power and ignore his nagging conscience.

Watch Tyrant Season 3 Episode 9 Online

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 9 sure gave us a lot to digest!

Daliyah's arrest on Barry's orders was a surprise to no one but herself – her over confidence about their relationship protecting her was a dead give away about how things were going to end up.

While part of me wanted her to go to Jordan with Fauzi, it does work better for the story for her to stay.

I'm curious about how long this hunger strike will last, and when Barry will resort to force feeding her.

Forever and a Day | Blu-ray Review

What may be most surprising about Katja von Garnier’s music doc Forever and a Day, a contemporary portrait of iconic hard rock/heavy metal German band The Scorpions, is to note their five decades worth of musical presence. Formed by Rudolf Schenker in 1965, the band allowed Garnier to tag along as they embarked on what was meant to be their Final Sting tour, an eighteen month stretch of performances which were set to wrap up in Munich. However, based on the jubilant reaction as they performed, the band decided to then extend the tour. The result becomes a ruminative pondering on the nature of an artist’s retirement and what happens when creative outlets are eventually restrained. In between playdates, Garnier completes a historical portrait of the band’s ups and downs throughout the past fifty years.

As one of the band’s managers remarks early on, “it’s

Suffragette movie review: then they fight you (#LFF2015)

The first feature film ever about the women who fought for their right to vote is glorious. It is angry and passionate and defiant. It is essential. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for stories about women; love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Votes for women!

Campaigns to include women in the democratic process via voting have been going on for centuries. There are places in the world that we would consider the height of civilization — *cough* Switzerland *cough* 1971 *cough* — that have only just afforded women this basic human dignity within my lifetime. (I’m not terribly old.) For the first time ever, women in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to vote in local elections happening this December. This fight has concerned half the human race and won’t officially end until that first Saudi woman

'Mary and Martha': Hilary Swank and Brenda Blethyn overcome cultural differences in the name of a common crusade

Sometimes, it takes a familiar face to put a face on a problem ... even one that is international in scope.

Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank is no stranger to championing social causes, and she takes up another as she and "My Left Foot" Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn play the title roles in the HBO drama movie "Mary and Martha" Saturday, April 20. Written by Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings and a Funeral") and filmed largely in South Africa, the BBC and NBC Universal co-production tells the story of two very different women who unite to crusade against malaria after both lose sons to the illness.

Mary (Swank) is an American who takes her child (Lux Haney-Jardine, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter") away from bullying classmates for an "adventure" abroad, and Martha (Blethyn) is an Englishwoman whose son (Sam Claflin, "Snow White and the Huntsman") volunteers at an African orphanage.

The Top 10 Actors Who Should Return To TV

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist


Movies used to be gold standard for actors, with George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio leaving the small screen for the big to achieve great professional and financial success.

However, times are changing, and many actors who left TV to work in movies are coming back, including Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams and Michael J. Fox. Due to the addition of cable and subscription-based original programming, better roles are being created that will give actors a chance for the recognition, awards and job security that movies no longer provide. Just look at Claire Danes, who returned to TV to star in Showtime’s Homeland, for which she’s nominated for an Emmy.

There are several actors who should return to TV, but not all of them will. Take a look at the top 10 TV stars who’ve left TV but should return:

Hilary Swank Is Dropped By PR Team After Chechnya Backlash

Hilary Swank has been going through quite the decable ever since receiving a ton of backlash when she attended a birthday party for Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov on Oct. 5. She made a speech at the event mentioning how she did her 'research' before attending and only later finding out that Kadyrov was accused of murdering some of his political rivals.

After the incident Swank fired her manager of eight years, Jason Weinberg, and two of his associates.

How far would you go for a sibling? A lot of drama has been produced of late showing organ transplants and similar sacrifices but while major events, are relatively short-term activities.
