Harrison Ford might be a superhero. This, according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, who was on set for Ford’s unfortunate accident last year, when a hydraulic door broke his leg. (As Abrams’ describes it in the clip above, his ankle was at a, gulp, 90-degree angle to the rest of his body. Ew.) Thankfully, Ford was okay. Then he later got into a plane crash and was mostly okay after that too. Because, again, Harrison Ford is a superhero.

We weren’t terribly broken up to learn that David Fincher’s ‘80s music comedy Video Synchronicity had halted production, though those angling for his and Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn’s take on U.K. series Utopia, complete with Rooney Mara in the lead, may be in for some bad news. Neither may happen now, as HBO may not see eye to eye with Fincher anymore

Its second season commonly derided as a dumpster fire, with only two episodes left to heave in, True Detective strikes a far different tone in conversation than only a few short months ago. That said, HBO still hopes for a third season with creator Nic Pizzolatto, calling Season 2 “enormously satisfying.”

If you are not watching The Knick, it should definitely be high up on your list of television priorities. Steven Soderbergh’s early 20th century period medical drama is gorgeously cinematic and exquisitely intense, and may be some of the filmmaker’s finest work to date. Today brings our first look at Season 2 via an appropriately unnerving and slightly surreal teaser — in addition to revealing a quarantine in San Francisco, the teaser also promises an October premiere.

Between the brilliance of Inside Amy Schumer and the relatable hilarity of Trainwreck (you could swap adjectives to describe both, really), Amy Schumer is on top of the world. Her recent GQ Star Wars photo shoot only further cemented her status as an icon, and Schumer will soon follow in the footsteps of her fellow comedic icons with her own HBO special — which now has its very own premiere date.

Anyone following Game of Thrones well knows that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss believe the George R.R. Martin-adapted series will run for seven seasons, hoping to tell the complete, unpadded story.

For months, HBO’s high-profile “Untitled Rock & Roll Drama” with Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese has pooled talent the likes of Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde, all without so much as the suggestion of a name. Now the pay cable network has finally gifted us with the simple-yet-perfect moniker Vinyl, also setting a 2016 premiere for the new music drama.
