Looks like HBO is bringing Tim Robbins back from The Brink. We still don’t have a name for True Blood and Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball’s new supernatural family drama, but we do know that Tim Robbins will take a lead role alongside Holly Hunter, as the series prepares to roll on its 10-episode order.
There’s always a stupid reason why the couple in a romantic comedy can’t be together until the closing credits. An ex-girlfriend or boyfriend appears at the most narratively conveniently moment, or one of the leads becomes a ghost, or there’s a misunderstanding that could easily be cleared up if the characters just sat and talked to one another for literally 15 seconds. One of the best things about The Big Sick is that the obstacles (plural, there are several) facing this relationship are real and relatable and believable and hugely serious.
There will never be another Six Feet Under (nor another True Blood, for that matter), but we’re more than game for whatever creator Alan Ball brings next. Especially now, as Holly Hunter has been cast to lead his untitled HBO drama’s curious new premise.
Even before the early reviews began rolling in, the trailers solidified Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman as the most exciting attraction in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Audiences agreed, as Wonder Woman — whose name isn’t even in the title of the film — ranked highest in a recent poll that asked fans which character they were most eager to see in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic. As predicted, Gadot’s debut is definitely the best thing in Batman v Superman, and although her part only makes up about seven minutes of the film’s 150-minute runtime, those few minutes are riveting — but not enough to justify Snyder’s unfortunate treatment of the remaining female characters.
In 1987 the Coen brothers released their third film, 'Raising Arizona,' which followed repeat criminal Hi McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) and his cop wife Edwina (Holly Hunter), who discover they are unable to have children, so they kidnap one of the newborn quintuplets belonging to a wealthy furniture magnate. While it wasn't a big success upon initial release, 'Raising Arizona' went on to gain a huge cult following in the years since, and is now considered a classic. 27 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
With filming set to begin soon, the cast for the still-not-officially-titled 'Man of Steel' sequel that everyone keeps on calling 'Batman vs. Superman' keeps on expanding. The latest round of announcements includes one name that has us very interested indeed: Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter.
