Last night marked the Star Wars Rebels presentation at the Gaslamp 15 during the San Diego Comic-Con during which several new clips and a new trailer debuted.  All three clips continue in the aesthetic that we’ve seen from the show so far.  So if you dug last week’s trailer, you’ll dig these.  I’m sort of surprised that this series seems to have much more narrative consistency than the prequels

The show premieres on Disney XD in the fall and also features the voices of Vanessa Marshall, David Oyelowo and Steven Jay Blum. If you’d like to catch what the show’s bringing to Comic-Con, the “Heroes of Stars Wars Rebels” panel will take place on Thursday, July 24th with executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg as well as Prinze Jr., Marshall, Blum, Gray and Tiya Sircar.  Hit the jump for the new Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con Clips.

It seems like we’ve been waiting a long while for FX’s adaptation of the book trilogy The Strain, but we’re now a little under two months away from the show’s premiere and the network has unveiled some new teaser trailers and images to tide us over.  Created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, the story revolves around a team of scientists who wage war against an ancient strain of virus that confers vampirism, along with those it infects.  Del Toro co-wrote and directed the pilot and oversaw the writing of the scripts for the first season, but Lost alum Carlton Cuse acts as the day-to-day showrunner of the series.  It continues to look like a sufficiently creepy horror drama, and I can’t wait to check out the full show this summer.

Hit the jump to check out the new The Strain trailers and images.  The series stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel GomezThe Strain premieres on FX on July 13th.

Universal has released the first trailer and some new images from director Tate Taylor‘s (The HelpJames Brown biopic Get on Up.  Cradle-to-grave biopics have a tendency to turn stale rather quickly and they almost all drone on for far too long, but this trailer markets Get on Up as a colorful, high-energy look at Brown’s life, inhabited by actor Chadwick Boseman.  In between all the funk and celebration is a strong dramatic undercurrent focusing on Brown’s mother (played by Viola Davis), and these kinds of scenes are where Taylor excelled in his debut feature The Help.  Boseman did a swell job playing Jackie Robinson in last year’s 42, so I’m interested to see how the actor inhabits the larger-than-life Brown.

A&E’s Bates Motel is getting ready to open up for a second season, and the network has released a couple of fittingly creepy teaser trailers in anticipation of the premiere.  For those unaware, the show is a prequel adaptation of Psycho and follows a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) as he opens a motel with his mother (Vera Farmiga) in a small, secret-filled town.  The first season was quite entertaining and Farmiga’s performance as Norma Bates is spectacular, so I’m interested to see where the show goes in this year’s batch of episodes.  The season finale definitely set things up for a serious shift in dynamic between the characters.

Hit the jump to watch the two teaser trailers.  Season two of Bates Motel kicks off March 3rd on A&E.

In between last night’s season finale of True Blood and new episode of The Newsroom, HBO premiered a couple of new teasers for the upcoming seasons of Girls and Eastbound and Down.  The “in production” trailer for season three of Girls actually doesn’t contain any footage at all, but instead is a collection of stills that have been taken during the filming process of the show’s new season.  Included are peeks at the return of Andrew Rannells’ Elijah (huzzah!) as well as a trip to the beach for the titular characters.  Season three will premiere sometime in early 2014.

Additionally, a new teaser for the upcoming fourth and final season of Eastbound and Down cheekily equates Kenny Powers’ return with the rising of the phoenix.  We don’t yet know how the new season will deal with the ramifications of the season three finale, but I can’t wait to see Danny McBride back in character.  Season four of Eastbound and Down will premiere on September 29th.  Hit the jump to watch the teasers for both HBO series.

boardwalk-empire-the-newsroom-slice

HBO has unveiled some new trailers for the upcoming seasons of two of its original series.  First up, the debut teaser trailer for Boardwalk Empire season four gives us our first look at the new character played by Jeffrey Wright, Valentin Narcisse.  The character is described as “Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist, student of culture and the man who runs Harlem,” and it’s clear in this brief teaser that he may pose quite the threat to Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson.  Wright’s character is a series regular for the new season, so expect to see plenty of Narcisse when Boardwalk Empire returns this fall.

Additionally, a couple of trailers for the upcoming second season of Aaron Sorkin’s drama series The Newsroom have landed online.  The most recent one is more of a “mood tease,” as we see dialogue-less behind-the-scenes glimpses of the show’s ensemble cast readying themselves to reprise their characters.  The second, longer trailer was actually unveiled a few weeks ago and features the cast and Sorkin talking about the season-long arc that will unfold this year.  The Newsroom season two premieres on HBO Sunday, July 14th.  Hit the jump to watch trailers for both series.
