Now that Penny Dreadful Season 3 has formally premiered, Showtime summer will kick off and don the brass knuckles in time for Liev Schreiber’s return in Ray Donovan Season 4. Don’t believe us? Here, watch the Showtime antihero punch and chokehold his way across Los Angeles, fret the family stuff, and give in to some Showtime cross-promotion in a new trailer.
Showtime put to rest the sixth season of Shameless this past Sunday, as it will the first run of Billions this coming weekend, and two of its other biggest hits have lined up with new trailers. Take a new look at the third run of ever-psychosexual Penny Dreadful, along with a new trailer and poster for Season 4 of Ray Donovan.
With Deadpool, Fox successfully (like, really successfully — record-breaking-successfully) rebooted a character who had previously been horrifically adapted in another, lesser film, and they did so without recasting the role. Miracles do exist. Now that Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth has been given a second cinematic life, could the same be done with another actor from X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Liev Schreiber, perhaps?
The 2015 Emmy Awards have already taken some wild swings, but everyone saw this one coming. After many years without recognition, Mad Men star Jon Hamm has finally taken home the statue for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama. He didn't even need to devise a world-renowned Coke commercial
Dystopian future? Check. A fight for survival? Check. A young woman protagonist caught in a love triangle? Must be a dystopian YA adaptation. Though you may find this incredibly difficult to believe (sit down if needed), Chloe Moretz has yet to star in a YA movie of her very own. That’s about to change with The 5th Wave, the new film based on Rick Yancey’s popular and highly-acclaimed YA novel, which is — wait for it — the first in a trilogy.
Seemingly brothers and sisters and arms, where Showtime’s Masters of Sex goes, Ray Donovan will follow. The sexual revolution drama and Liev Schrieber’s L.A. fixer will return arm-in-arm for 2016, as Showtime has officially renewed both dramas for a fourth season.
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.
