Hell on Wheels fans have known for some time that the adventures of Cullen Bohannon would drive that final golden spike in 2016, and the closing stretch of track is officially before us. Now that we know when Hell on Wheels’ final seven episodes will premiere, so too do we have a look at the first trailer.
Preacher time is nearly upon us, and the sinners at AMC aren’t about to let us forget it. Not only does the Seth Rogen-Evan Golberg-adapted series have another brand-new trailer for the May premiere, but also some trouble with the law in a new round of photos.
Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher is one of those tricky properties to properly adapt. Remain too faithful and you run the risk of creating a laughably absurd, tonally catastrophic mess. Venture too far away from the source material and you may alienate the very fan base you wish to please. Thankfully, producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin have hit that rare sweet spot, and though the pilot episode of AMC’s Preacher does recalibrate some of Ennis and Dillon’s basic plotting and setups, the essential spirit and characters of the graphic novel remain delightfully the same.
Ruth Negga appears opposite Dominic Cooper in this summer’s Warcraft, but before then, you can see the pair’s chemistry at work in Preacher, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ classic graphic novels. We had a chance to speak with Negga about her role as the impossibly charming Tulip O’Hare, the joys of playing such a complex character, and what we can expect from the series following its May 1 premiere.
Dominic Cooper is following up his role as the younger Howard Stark in Marvel’s Agent Carter with two more franchise adaptations this summer. In addition to appearing on the big screen in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, Cooper stars in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher, the new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ beloved graphic novels. Debuting on May 1, the first episode impressively captures the darkly comedic and devious tone of the comics, leaving us eager to see more. We had a chance to speak with Cooper following the premiere of Preacher at SXSW, where he discussed his part in the risky adaptation and teased some of the crazy stuff we'll see in the episodes and (hopefully) seasons ahead.
No amount of railroad puns will stop Hell on Wheels from reaching the end of the line, now that a June premiere has been set for its final seven episodes. Not only that, but fans can also check out the premiere of Robert Redford’s The American West immediately after.
May is nearly upon us, and with it comes the official AMC premiere of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher adaptation. Now, the entire cast steps into the sun (some umbrellas required) for the full cast photos from AMC’s next comic-adapted drama.
The Walking Dead has some immediate mysteries to answer by the time Season 7 premieres in the fall, but that won’t stop the AMC horror smash from opening up a whole new world beyond. Following a quick tease and an apparent leak, The Walking Dead has now officially begun casting the role of Ezekiel, a fan-favorite and major new ally for #TeamRick.
Shortly after Better Call Saul drew its second season to a close by Monday’s “Klick” finale, creator Vince Gilligan revealed both a Breaking Bad cameo destined for Season 3, and one that very nearly took place in the season finale itself. Now, said Bad alum explains their involvement in the scrapped appearance, as well as the potential to return next season.
Despite some notable diversions and (controversial) attempts to spin its source material in different ways, The Walking Dead has tended more and more to follow its comic inspiration. AMC’s rendition remains significantly behind Robert Kirkman’s canon, but a new one-shot The Alien twist for the Grimes family could open up a vast new world by the time AMC’s Walking Dead catches up.
