One thing is for certain about director Tom McCarthy — he’s been very diverse, which makes him a bit unpredictable. His most recent film was the laughably, inconceivably awful The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler. But prior to that he made acclaimed films like The Station Agent and Win Win. With that little Adam Sandler hiccup behind us now, we’re free to look forward to Spotlight, a new drama featuring an excellent ensemble cast and some very serious subject matter. Best of all: no magic shoes.
Just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, Showtime had a few extra explosions to spare for Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan Season 3. Before the official July 12 premiere, both summer series have released their full debut episodes online.
By now you’re likely familiar with the story of Bobby Fischer, the young chess prodigy who became the youngest chess grandmaster in history. As he grew older, Fischer began to suffer from some mental issues, which is the main focus of the new film Pawn Sacrifice. The first trailer has arrived, featuring Tobey Maguire in the role of the older Fischer, struggling to prepare for one of the biggest chess matches of his life.
Showtime's critically-acclaimed period piece 'Masters of Sex' and fixer drama 'Ray Donovan' have always run on parallel tracks, both emerging in 2013 and getting paired together for summer season 2 Sundays in 2014. Now, both series are set to continue their relationship another year, as showtime has officially renewed both 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' to return for third seasons in 2015.
This summer will see Hollywood fixer 'Ray Donovan' paired up with Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' for the second season of either series, and things are only heating up. Not only has the first full 'Ray Donovan' trailer arrived, towing a heap of new guest stars, but William Masters and Virginia Johnson are front and center in some racy new looks at 'Masters of Sex' season 2.
Where has director Mira Nair been? The last time we saw the acclaimed filmmaker behind 'Monsoon Wedding,' she was slumming it with the instantly forgettable Oscar bait 'Amelia' back in 2009. With that out of her system, her next film, 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist,' will hopefully be a return to form, and the new trailer certainly has our hopes up!
