HBO's 'The Newsroom' has been mired in controversy and debate from its very inception, whether by Aaron Sorkin's tense relationship with the media, or the uneven reception of the series itself. Most critics have come to consensus that the still-airing second season has marked a significant step forward, but are HBO or Sorkin himself dragging their feet on a third season renewal?
'The Trial of the Chicago 7' was one hot project in 2008, with Aaron Sorkin writing, Steven Spielberg directing, and Will Smith and Sacha Baron Cohen rumored to star as Bobby Seale and Abbie Hoffman, respectively. The project has been dormant for a while, but 'The Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass might be the person to bring it back to life.
This Sunday will see 'The Newsroom' season 2 display its full spectrum of Aaron Sorkinisms with premiere episode "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers," but shouldn't the first thing we do be to check out the latest clips from the debut? Will McAvoy and the ACN staff talking over one another, and Jeff Daniels putting on a smug face await!
Though with less fanfare than 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Blood,' HBO's controversial Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will premiere its second season this coming Sunday with "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers." Mouthy titles aside, the new season will introduce a host of new characters from the likes of Grace Gummer, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater and Constance Zimmer, so why wait to meet the new faces delivering Sorkin's favorite recycled lines?
A few weeks ago, a profile of 'The Newsroom' and 'West Wing' creator Aaron Sorkin emerged that portrayed the writer's complicated writing habits, which had actually cost the HBO drama an episode from its second season order due to costly reshoots. And while many 'Newsroom' detractors have previously pointed to a "Sorkinism" supercut that illustrated the writer's frequently recycled dialogue, the sequel version has us looking more forward to 'The Newsroom' season 2 than ever.
Though numerous criticisms have been leveled at HBO's Aaron Sorkin-scripted 'The Newsroom' since its inaugural season last summer, we remain optimistic over the revamped second season debuting on July 14. That said, it seems writing difficulties and production mishaps have reduced the second season's length from 10 to 9 episodes overall, as Sorkin admitted a "false start" to shooting, among other idiosyncrasies.
Phew! Just when we thought 'The Newsroom' season 2's promotional campaign had started to make sense with the release of the first official trailer, the Aaron Sorkin-scripted HBO drama has returned to the desert of its first teaser for an equally baffling approach to the new season premiering July 14. The full set of moody promotional posters has arrived, but the question remains: do they stand alone together? Or something?
We're still a few weeks away from HBO's season 2 premiere of Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom,' but the most recent trailer has begun to shed light on the new year for the hotly-debated journalism series. The first three episode descriptions following the July 14 premiere for 'The Newsroom' season 2 have it, so who gets in the most trouble with the inaugural hours?
Last night may have been 'Game of Thrones'' shining finale moment, but HBO spared no expenses in promoting both its recently announced returns and the long-expected premieres to come this summer. Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' season 2 finally received a proper trailer, but does it look like Sorkin learned any lessons from the multiple misfires of the journalism drama's first season?
No doubt we all need to clear our heads a bit after last night's horribly upsetting 'Game of Thrones' episode, "The Rains of Castamere," and how better to unwind than with a new trailer for HBO's 'The Newsroom' season 2 that doesn't appear to make a lick of sense? Strap on your Aaron Sorkin-bashing helmets, and get ready to artfully explore the desert!
