HBO’s upcoming Scorsese-Jagger driven Vinyl gave us a first bump of the new series with a brief teaser, and now scores a much bigger fix. Watch Bobby Canavale snort and rock through the full star-studded trailer, spinning Vinyl into one of our most anticipated debuts of 2016.
Our long national nightmare ended last week when HBO finally christened its “Untitled Rock & Roll Drama” Vinyl, a catchy name for the likes of series lead Bobby Cannavale, and executive producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. Only those at TCA caught the first trailer, but HBO has at least offered a small tease of all the sex, drugs, and you guessed it, rock and roll.
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.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Ant-Man reshoots have resulted in a very interesting change, Harley Quinn details are revealed, and Captain America: Civil War details begin to leak.
You know Nick Kroll best for his comedic work, and while there’s certainly some of that on display in the trailer for Adult Beginners, we also get to see a bit of his more vulnerable and sensitive side. The first trailer for the new indie dramedy has plenty of laughs and several familiar funny faces, but it also promises to be a thoughtful and insightful film about coming-of-middle-age.
When you meet Bobby Cannavale in person, he’s very friendly, but you quickly get the sense that he doesn’t put up with nonsense. Not that Cannavale doesn’t have a sense of humor—he uses this humor to great effect in the upcoming ‘Annie’ remake; playing a political strategist named Guy who is in charge of William Stacks’ (Jamie Foxx) New York City mayoral campaign; spoiler alert: they meet a little girl named Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis)—it’s more that he doesn’t really like to do the things that actors have to do when they are not acting … like putting up with someone like me while I ask him questions. (For the record: He is correct.)
Well, we can’t say for sure as a high-profile project from the likes of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger has ever gone so long through development without an actual title, but HBO officially likes the sweet sounds of “Untitled Rock ‘N’ Roll Project.” The Bobby Cannavale-led ‘70s drama has an official series pickup, with cast from the likes of Olivia Wilde to Ray Romano, and even a beloved ‘Legend of Korra’ star.
We all know the familiar story of the washed-up, has-been rocker, but the trailer for ‘Danny Collins’ takes the premise and gives it a little twist with an added bit of hoo-ah for emphasis: what if a promising rocker actually went on to have a very successful career, but that career was shallow and lacked the depth and soul of his earlier, folksy background? What if a rocker who idolized John Lennon evolved into something of a Barry Manilow? The result is Al Pacino’s Danny Collins, and as Annette Bening notes, he does look slightly ridiculous.
Following the big appearance at Comic-Con 2014, where stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll dished on their superhero heist film alongside director Peyton Reed, Marvel's 'Ant-Man' officially announced the start of production and, along with it, its full cast.
It amuses us to no end that HBO's forthcoming period rock and roll drama from the likes of 'Boardwalk Empire' Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger still hasn't settled on a title, yet continually expands its cast to biblical proportions. Joining Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano today are Mick Jagger's own son James, comedian Andrew "Dice" Clay, a 'Wolf' of Wall Street, and many more.
