It’s been way too long since the last Jeff Nichols movie.
It’s a rare occurrence when one writer takes another’s story and adapts it into an entirely new creature of its own, outside of imitation or homage. It’s even more rare when that writer reinvents his adaptation yet again for a second installment. Noah Hawley did that last year with Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 dark comedy Fargo, easily one of 2014's best TV series. Now Hawley’s doing it all over again, adopting the anthology format for a second season of FX’s Fargo, taking the seeds from the Coen brothers’ classic and planting them in another original, bizarre field. But even the creative brilliance of sowing something new can lead to watching a very slow, tepid growth.
We’re less than a month away from the October premiere of FX’s Fargo Season 2, even with the onslaught of fall TV looming over the next few weeks, but the ‘70s-set series has something to warm us over in the meantime. Check out the full set of cast photos, as well as a look at the Fargo Season 2 premiere!
Aside from the Bill Murray Christmas special coming this December to Netflix, we haven’t heard much about Sofia Coppola since 2013's The Bling Ring. She was attached to direct The Little Mermaid for Universal, but recently parted ways with the project over the typical “creative differences.” But fans of Coppola may be in for a treat, as a new report suggests that she’s reuniting with Kirsten Dunst for a new film next year.
FX’s Fargo shoveled out a few Season 2 teases of late, but the snow has officially thawed to bring us a full two and a half-minute trailer of the ‘70s-set tale of homespun murder and mayhem. See the star-studded cast on full display and watch for blood stains with a full preview of Fargo Season 2!
FX’s Fargo Season 2 recently unearthed its first trailer out from under the snow, and before the next storm hits, the Coen brothers-inspired true crime tale has a few more bloody gems. Return to homespun murder and mayhem with some quaint new blood-soaked teasers, as well as photos of the all-new cast.
FX’s Fargo got a jump on Season 2 over the Comic-Con weekend with a few fresh teasers, and by golly, that snowfall isn’t about to let up. Our first full trailer to the sequel-prequel season of FX’s breakout hit has arrived, and the Sioux Falls ‘70s look to be even more dryly violent than the first time around.
Say it with me now: Minn-eh-soooo-tah. New Fargo Season 2 teasers have arrived, don’tcha know? Okay, enough with the regional dialect jokes. The latest teasers for Fargo actually feature the actors from the upcoming second season of FX’s series, which is loosely based on the Coen brothers’ film of the same name. Ted Danson, Patrick Wilson and Kirsten Dunst head to the snowy northern state in two new spots to get you all excited for the fall premiere.
It’s been a good long while since FX’s Fargo adaptation spoke anything of its second seasons, don’t ya know, and darn tootin’ we’ve waited, you betcha! Noah Hawley’s adapted breed of snowfallen ultra-violence is on full display in the first full teaser of Fargo Season 2, but who might be on the on the wrong end of a good pecking?
Raimi is echoing what most critics and fans have been telling him for the last seven years. ‘Spider-Man 3’ had the lowest Rotten Tomatoes rating of any film in the franchise (until this year’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’), and it made less money in the U.S. than either of its predecessors. For many, it represents not only the lowest-point of the Spider-Man series, but for comic-book movies as a whole; the conclusion of Raimi’s Spider-trilogy routinely ranks among the worst superhero movies ever. (See: this, and this, and this, and this, and this.) No wonder Spidey looks so sad on the ‘Spider-Man 3’ teaser poster; everyone hates his movie.
