The sixth and final season of HBO’s Girls pulled a fast one announcing that Rogue One and all-around everywhere actor Riz Ahmed would drop by the final season, but consider all cats out of their respective bags. The season synopsis and first three episodes reveal the full complement of guests, including returnees like Corey Stoll, and newbies like Matthew Rhys, Tracey Ullman and more.

HBO’s Girls started its first controversy with Hannah Horvath (and by association Lena Dunham)’s supposition that she might be “the voice of my generation,” and the sixth and final season seems not to have forgotten that. Our full trailer for the HBO dramedy’s final year sees Hannah back in her element, trying to write the “final chapter.”

‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Will Go Deeper Into Kylo Ren’s ‘Humanity’

Over the years, the Star Wars movies have gradually matured. We saw a shift from the original trilogy in how Darth Vader was personified — first a faceless villain, then a tragic former father — and then the prequels took us back to see the bad guy’s fall from grace. With this new trilogy, we’re given a new masked villain with a red lightsaber at the head of an evil organization, but Kylo Ren seems like the least bad of all the Star Wars villains, or, at least the one for whom you most want a redemption arc. There’s a reason for that.

Just as Rocky Balboa inspired the world with his perseverance and courage in the face of overwhelming opposition, Sylvester Stallone inspired the people of America last month by not accepting President-elect Donald Trump’s offer to head the National Endowment for the Arts, stating that he’d rather devote his energies to moviemaking. In a gesture alien to Trump and his administration, Stallone has now followed through on his earlier words, bringing increased attention to the plight of soldiers reintegrating into society with a planned new feature. And he‘s going to start by cutting off Adam Driver’s arms and legs.

‘Silence’ Review: Martin Scorsese’s Earnest, Exhausting Religious Epic

Martin Scorsese has reportedly been trying to make an English-language adaptation of Shūsaku Endō’s novel Silence for upwards of 25 years. Watching the finished movie, it’s easy to see why he fought so hard to make it — and why it took so long to get someone to finance and distribute it. Silence encapsulates many of Scorsese’s most deeply felt themes; ideas about faith, sin, and guilt he’s considered in film after film for decades. But it does so in a package that is slow, dry, and a little monotonous. Fans (there will certainly be some, and not without reason) will hail Silence as a passionate and perceptive career summation. Silence’s critics will likely agree — while wishing that summation wasn’t such a slog.

As Silence prepares to hit select theaters this weekend (the rest of you will have to wait until January), Paramount has unveiled a new international trailer for Martin Scorsese’s long-developing passion project — an epic drama based on Japanese author Shusaku Endo’s acclaimed novel. There are a couple of notable things about this trailer for Silence: For one, it’s a bit more intense than the domestic versions, and because it’s a Japanese trailer, the Japanese cast members are more prominently featured.

The girls of Girls will no longer be girls by the time Girls comes to Girls’ end this February, but worse yet; they may not even be friends. The latest trailer for the sixth and final season of Lena Dunham’s life serial sees the four just barely hanging on, while Adam and his Kylo Ren hair makes things even more complicated.

Adam Driver Doesn’t Want Any Trailers for ‘Star Wars: Episode 8’

Trailers are huge events these days. Just last weekend, The Fate of the Furious took over Times Square in New York City to play the highly anticipated trailer on 33 huge billboards at once. It seems like every new blockbuster has released a trailer in the last couple of weeks. But what if they stopped doing that? What if Star Wars, for example, refused to show any footage of the Episode VIII until you’re sitting there in the theater? Adam Driver wouldn’t complain.

It’s Real, It’s Here, and It’s Magnificent: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Finally Gets a Trailer

Paramount hasn't been historically known for their baller moves, but when it comes to their bold anti-promotional campaign for Martin Scorsese's Silence, game must recognize game. Keeping a major awards horse almost entirely on the down-low until one month before its December 23 release is one thing; when that movie also happens to be a passion project decades in the making from what very well might be our greatest living filmmaker — American or otherwise — well, that's just showing off. A Martin Scorsese movie sells itself, and Paramount has now reminded the moviegoing public of why that is.
