HBO’s True Blood is back this Sunday, June 10th, at 9pm, and the show’s fifth season is sure to be full of bloody mayhem that will hopefully rectify some of last year’s lackluster performance. As the number of magical creatures and love triangles (love-dodecahedrons, at this point) continues to increase, it may be hard to keep track of who’s alive, who’s dead, who came back and what kind of magic they possess. Take a spoiler-filled refresher course after the jump to relive the last four seasons of True Blood, including some of the best, worst and weirdest surprises from Bon Temps over the last few years (or moments, if you’re on fairy time).
The trailer for Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life has gone online. A bootleg version landed online earlier this month but the quality was pretty poor. I caught the trailer when I went to see Black Swan again this past weekend. It’s a wonderfully cut together trailer that highlights the gorgeous cinematography and emotional performances from stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Jessica Chastain, while giving almost nothing away.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The Tree of Life opens May 27, 2011.
HBO’s True Blood is ramping up for production on its fourth season with two new actors joining the already very-large ensemble cast. Courtney Ford (Dexter), and Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter) are set to join the Southern vampire series, the new season premieres Summer 2011.
Ford, who played Trinity’s daughter on the fourth season of Dexter, will play a new character called Portia Bellefleur. The character is described as “a Southern beauty who runs her own law practice,” as well as being the sister of detective Andy Bellefleur. Shaw is set to play a “self-loathing medium who becomes possessed by a witch.” Sounds like classic True Blood to me, hit the jump for my thoughts.
Are the nine more days until the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 just too grueling to endure? Then you should just look through these 58 images from the movie. Warner Bros. can afford to throw secrecy out the window since A) everyone has read the book and B) everyone is going to see the movie anyway.
And if this plethora of images isn’t enough for you, then be sure to read about Steve’s visit to the set, check out his interviews with Daniel Radcliffe, Warwick Davis, Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch and director David Yates, and watch six clips from the movie. Hit the jump to check out the images. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 opens November 19th.
Terrence Malick’s (The Thin Red Line) upcoming film The Tree of Life has just received its rating from the MPAA. Via Rope of Silicon, the film will be PG-13 for “some thematic material.” While knowing the film’s rating is nice (if you’re into that sort of thing), the real pull here is that someone has actually seen the long delayed film. In fact, when you consider that no official images and/or trailers have been released for it to date, the rating itself takes on a whole new life of its own as hope that it may actually get released around the time of its latest purported release date, November 2010.
