HBO had plenty to announce by the recent TCA press tour (as well to keep quiet), and now some more good news has flown in under the wire. The network has handed a series order to a ‘70s New York porn drama from The Wire creator David Simon, rounded out by James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. No, we’ve made none of this up.

There is no combination of the phrases “James Franco,” “time travel,” “save JFK,” or “Hulu” that fails to amuse, and yet, J.J. Abrams and Stephen King have gone ahead and given it their darnest. Anyway, watch James Franco go back in the closet to 1963 for the first full trailer of Hulu’s time-travelin’, JFK-savin’, Franco-fronted 11.22.63! Some Chris Cooper required.

Not that the collaboration of Stephen King, James Franco and J.J. Abrams in a JFK-saving time-travel drama wasn’t enough for Hulu’s upcoming event series 11.22.63, the latest trailer definitely puts it over the mark. Join Franco, as he goes from orchestrating assassinations to stopping them, and apparently battling a swarm of cockroaches along the way.

The mere combinations of “Stephen King,” “James Franco,” “time travel” and “J.J. Abrams” weren’t enough to put you on board with Hulu’s upcoming event series 11.22.63, the first trailer might do the trick. Come, join out beloved Pineapple Express star, as we travel through time to stop the assassination of J.F.K., as only James Franco can do.

The Trailer for James Franco’s ‘The Sound and the Fury’ Is, Uh, Really Something

The first trailer for the James Franco-starring, James Franco-directed adaptation of Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, a stream-of-consciousness Southern doorstopper chronicling the calamitous life of the Compson family. At the risk of editorializing, it does not look good.

While HBO has given director David Fincher an incredibly difficult time with his two prospective pilots (both of which are now likely dead), the network is moving ahead with two pilots from our other favorite David — The Wire creator David Simon is working on two new dramas, one a political series (of course), and the other inspired by the ‘70s porn scene in New York. Guess which one James Franco has joined? Actually, that’s not a question. You know which one.

The first, long-awaited trailer for Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert opens sort of like a more gentle Mad Max: Fury Road, with Nicole Kidman explaining that her world is “life and fire.” It’s the true story of Gertrude Bell, a woman so suffocated by civil life that she strikes out into the desert of Tehran in the 1920s, where she becomes integral in shaping the politics of the Middle East.
