The trailer for Lola Versus has gone online. The movie stars Greta Gerwig as a young woman who gets dumped just before her wedding, and who must then struggle with her newly single life. Based on this trailer, your enjoyment of Lola Versus will vary based on how much you’ve enjoyed Gerwig work in the past. The jokes don’t seem particularly strong (there’s a My Best Friend’s Wedding reference), but I tend to like Gerwig even though she’s never blown me away in a movie. Hopefully, Lola Versus will be the film that does it.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the new poster. The film also stars Zoe Lister-Jones, Joel Kinnaman, Hamish Linklater, Debra Winger, and Bill Pullman. Lola Versus June 8th.

She proceeds to embark on a series of desperate encounters as she finds herself questioning her place in the world on the cusp of turning 30.
Kinnamann is best known as one of the stars of AMC’s successful drama series The Killing, which was just recently picked up for a second season. He steps into Lola Versus replacing Orlando Bloom in the role of Gerwig’s fiancée. Daryl Wein (Breaking Upwards) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Zoe Jones. Filming is currently underway in New York City. Hit the jump to read the full press release.
Though most network and cable shows are kicking later this month, October always sees the return of some series a little later in the fall season and this year is no exception. First up, via press release, HBO announced their drama series In Treatment will return to the air on Monday, October 25th with two back-to-back episodes kicking off the third season. Then Tuesday, October 26th will see two more back-to-back episodes as well. Gabriel Byrne will reprise his role as Dr. Paul Weston with new cast members like Debra Winger (Rachel Getting Married) and Amy Ryan (The Office, Gone Baby Gone) being tossed into the mix.
Details on SyFy’s returning series after the jump.
The Wire alum Amy Ryan will return to HBO this year in the psychotherapy drama In Treatment. Based on a popular Israeli series, In Treatment centers around Gabriel Byrne’s Dr. Paul Weston and his weekly sessions with patients. Deadline reports that Ryan will play Weston’s new therapist since Dianne Wiest, who played Weston’s old therapist, is departing the show. Ryan joins Debra Winger as a new addition to the season three cast.
The series has a flexible shooting schedule, and so will hopefully not preclude a return to The Office for Ryan that was teased at the end of season six. Plus, In Treatment excels at providing actors with award-worthy material, so Ryan has a good shot at a Emmy nomination to go with her Oscar kudos for Gone Baby Gone.
