Cameron Crowe movies have been hit and miss over the last few years, leaving us curious if Showtime’s Roadies return to the vibe of Crowe’s Almost Famous can buck the trend. See for yourself, as Showtime released the full series premiere online, ahead of its formal debut.
Cameron Crowe fan or otherwise, we’re at least anxious for a look at the Almost Famous director’s new Showtime Roadies, debuting June 26. Thankfully, the network has obliged, adding Office vet Rainn Wilson into a new full-length trailer getting to know the characters.
Just as the other day gave us a first look at Showtime’s summer lineup of Ray Donovan Season 4, so too has its traveling companion Roadies put a new trailer on tour as well. See for yourself, as Cameron Crowe takes the crew through 60 shows in 43 cities.
Cameron Crowe’s Showtime music drama Roadies has been a long … well, road coming, between recasting and other retools, and now finally has a date for its first big show. The Almost Famous followup of sorts will officially premiere in June, also smoothly jamming out its first official trailer.
As always, Showtime had plenty to say by their TCA press tour presentation, just just Homeland’s move to New York City, but also an official Season 7 renewal for Shameless, and premiere outlines for House of Lies Season 5, Penny Dreadful Season 3, even Ray Donovan Season 4. Find out for yourself, and catch the first new Penny Dreadful footage!
Cameron Crowe‘s Showtime music dramedy Roadies hit a few bumps along the way, languishing in development and retooling its pilot with Carla Gugino replacing Mad Men alum Christina Hendricks, but the show will finally take the stage. Crowe confirms a series order for 2016, also delivering our first footage.
The 15th anniversary of Almost Famous is approaching, and to celebrate, director Cameron Crowe has been sharing some rare behind the scenes photos and artwork from his acclaimed semi-autobiographical drama. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since the world was introduced to Stillwater, the Enemy, and the manic pixie stylings of Kate Hudson. But yes, you’re older now. Don’t be so shocked.
The critical failure of Cameron Crowe’s last cinematic venture somewhat changed the conversation around the Almost Famous director’s upcoming Showtime Roadies, and it seems Mrs. Holloway will no longer be helping with PR. Following Christina Hendricks’ earlier exit from the project, Carla Gugino has stepped in as Roadies‘ new production manager.
Aloha may have opened to scathing reviews and poor box office, but the latest film from writer/director Cameron Crowe did touch a nerve. It just so happened to a nerve that no one ever wants to touch. Despite being set on Hawaii, the cast is chock-full of the whitest white people in Hollywood, including Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin. That wouldn’t have been a problem if the only character with a distinctly Hawaiian background wasn’t played by the ludicrously pale Emma Stone. Yes, Stone was cast as a character named Allison Ng, so you can see why feathers were ruffled, especially since Hollywood already has a poor track record with racial representation in movies.
I did not like Cameron Crowe’s Aloha. By now I have made that very clear. But Sony just made the film’s first eight minutes available online. (That’s them in the video above.) I’m watching the video here, and trying to will myself into liking them more. It’s not working.
