We certainly enjoyed FX's slow-burning border drama remake 'The Bridge' through its first two seasons, even with some admitted stumbling through the inaugural year, but the network appears to have lost patience. Following its second season finale, FX has opted not to renew 'The Bridge' for season 3, but is there any hope beyond cancellation?
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the border of FX's US-Mexico drama 'The Bridge,' which since ordered a second season of the danish series remake starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir. Now, the first trailer has arrived for 'The Bridge' season 2, teasing even more international violence for the July premiere.
At the 44-minute mark (I checked) of 'Mr. Nobody,' I loudly sighed and asked, “Good God, when the hell is this movie going to START!”
Featuring various narrators, time-loops and narrative branches emblematic of the “multiple worlds theory,” Jaco Van Dormael's 'Mr. Nobody' -- starring Jared Leto, Sarah Polley, Diane Kruger, Juno Temple and a whole mess of special effects shots -- is the type of far-out science-fiction that usually inspires in me an enthusiastic response. But as with last year's similar 'Cloud Atlas,' (similar in that both films are defiantly different) this is a movie that ultimately collapses under its own weight. Its relentless cinematic tricksterism soon becomes unbearable, and its themes, while thought-provoking, are so unsubtle you'll exit this near two-and-a-half-hour film in need of a nap.
FX border drama remake 'The Bridge' hasn't quite captured the hearts and minds of some of the cable network's other audiences, but will officially gain a second chance in 2014. FX has announced their renewal of the Diane Kruger-Demian Bichir thriller for another season next summer, but what new stories might the show tell after burning through the plot of the original Swedish hit?
We haven't seen very much from FX's summer offering 'The Bridge,' adapting the Danish/Swedish drama of the same name, apart from the eerie 'No Country For Old Men'-style teasers. That all changes with the border patrol drama's first trailer, but will 'The Bridge' prove exciting enough to cross over viewer interest? Check out our first real look at 'The Bridge' inside!
One of the only remaining humans on our planet is captured and possessed by an alien, but it's her love for her boyfriend and her family that pushes her to fight back and save the world from ruin.
While FX has entertained a number of pilots over the last year to fill imminent holes in the schedule, we've just learned that the cable network has officially begun handing out series orders. First up is an adaptation of Danish TV series 'Bron' titled 'The Bridge,' set along the US border between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico. The new drama stars Diane Kruger and comes to us from 'Homeland' writer/producer Meredith Stiehm, but will it be worth your while as the next great FX drama? Get the latest on 'The Bridge' inside!
Proving that studios will make a trend out of just about anything, our 16th president is the latest hot commodity. There is now a third film in the works about Abraham Lincoln -- 'The Green Blade Rises,' produced by Terrence Malick. German actress Diane Kruger has just signed on to play Abe's stepmother.
