Early last week HBO finally lifted the veil on the coming second season of 'Girls,' utilizing the season's first trailer to offer new looks at characters played by Donald Glover, Rita Wilson and Patrick Wilson as well as our regular favorites Hannah, Jessa, Marnie and Shoshanna. While we wait for the second season of the Lena Dunham / Judd Apatow HBO comedy to premiere on January 13, the network has issued an official poster that, well, might hurt your eyes just a bit.
Earlier today HBO unveiled the first official trailer for 'Enlightened' season 2, set to return to the airwaves on Sunday, January 13, along with the second season premiere of HBO's buzzy Lena Dunham drama 'Girls.' Unfortunately, 'Girls' season 2 has yet to issue its first real trailer, but the network has instead released three new shots of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna back in the saddle! What new awkwardness will the foursome find in 'Girls' season 2?
"Hold your horses," we thought, unintentionally connecting the latest bit of 'Girls' gossip to the HBO series' oft-mentioned association with 'Sex and the City.' However controversial the first season of the Judd Apatow / Lena Dunham-produced HBO drama 'Girls' may have been, fans of the series still eagerly await the coming of its second season in early 2013. Imagine our surprise then to learn that its producers are already assured of 'Girls' season 3! Is there truth to the rumor, or are we being jerked around by 'Girls'?
The first season of HBO's critical darling 'Girls' certainly polarized plenty of people, but perhaps none more so than those who thought the Brooklyn adventures of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna sorely lacked in diversity. Though series creator Lena Dunham had her reasons for casting the show as she did, it seems that pressure has created a few changes in season 2. But what does 'Community's' Donald Glover have to do with it?
Impulse and senses collide in a tale of emotional propriety and nebulous boundaries in 'Nobody Walks,' the new film from director Ry Russo-Young. Co-written by Lena Dunham, the film follows Martine (Olivia Thirlby), a young artist who comes to stay with a liberal family and casually shakes their microcosm listlessly as if it were a snowglobe placed there for her amusement.
Few things scream "INDIE FILM!" quite like Lena Dunham. In fact, the only thing that screams "INDIE FILM!" louder is a film co-written by Dunham, directed by Ry Russo-Young and starring John Krasinski and Oliva Thirlby. With those elements in place, it's no surprise that 'Nobody Walks' took home a Special Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Now, the critical smash has a trailer.
The internet has been having it out for weeks over sexism in relation to Lena Dunham's series 'Girls.' It's been thought that it's a show primarily watched by women, a show that most men dislike, and we've been lobbing accusations back and forth about who likes/dislikes it and why... But friends, we can stop our fighting now.
Turns out more men than women are watching 'Girls,' and a bunch of 'em are old dudes. (That sound you just heard was an old-timey record scratch.)
