“Have you ever noticed how in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits?”
Earlier today saw AMC's 'Hell on Wheels' earning a somewhat surprising season 4 pickup with additional episodes, leaving the oft-maligned 'Low Winter Sun' as the last of AMC's scripted offerings without its future decided. Even the dank corruption drama's stars have taken to trashing the low-rated drama, but how long until AMC makes a decision on the series' future?
It's been no secret that AMC's promising, if overly gritty drama 'Low Winter Sun' failed to meet expectations as a spiritual successor to the dark drama of 'Breaking Bad,' but even with its season 2 fate in limbo, it seems series star James Ransone isn't waiting to put the show on blast for failing to live up to expectations.
Along with a brand-new episode of 'Breaking Bad,' this Sunday's third installment of AMC freshman crime drama 'Low Winter Sun' will feature a surprise for 'Walking Dead' fans, shambling out a brand new look at season 4! While the action of 'Low Winter Sun' heats up however, we have an exclusive photo sneak peek of Sunday's all-new episode "No Rounds" to get fans up to speed on the series.
Just as AMC earlier placed its Sunday offering of the final 'Breaking Bad' premiere "Blood Money" online to view, so too has the meth drama's newest partner hit the web. 'Low Winter Sun' may have split the critics in evaluating AMC's latest gritty drama, but you can judge for yourself by watching the entire series premiere pilot episode right here!
UPDATE: Additional speculation suggests that 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston may also be up for the role. Between these two actors, which would you rather see get the part?
As eagle-eyed fans the world over will tell you, 'Man of Steel' contained numerous references to LexCorp, the company run by iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor. Naturally, tongues started wagging and everyone immediately assumed that the bald baddie would play a major role in the inevitable sequel. And then the fantasy casting began.
And now, Mark Strong has hinted that the role may be his.
AMC's 'Breaking Bad' will soon cook to a close when new episodes begin Sunday August 11, but our reintroduction to Walter White will also set up AMC's next gritty drama, 'Low Winter Sun.' Starring Mark Strong and 'The Walking Dead' player Lenny James, AMC's UK-adapted crime drama has released the first five minutes of its pilot online, and you'd better have a strong stomach if you want to watch.
As with 'Hell on Wheels' season 3, not all of AMC's buzzworthy programming had the time or capacity to preview its wares at Comic-Con 2013, but the UK-adapted crime drama 'Low Winter Sun' has nonetheless given our best look yet into the dark and dangerous world of the corrupt Detroit police department.
For as much as we look forward to the debut of 'Breaking Bad''s final episodes on Aug. 11, that Sunday will also see the premiere of AMC's new UK-adapted cop drama, 'Low Winter Sun,' starring rumored Lex Luthor Mark Strong. We loved the first trailer for the moody new series, but what can we learn from the first official 'Low Winter Sun' poster?
