HBO's 'Game of Thrones' will take off this coming Sunday for Memorial Day, but HBO won't exactly shut down, instead airing Ryan Murphy's buzzworthy stage-adapted period drama 'The Normal Heart' in its place. The trailers have all sold us on the star-studded drama chronicling the AIDS outbreak of the '80s, but now HBO has released three brand-new clips to put things over the mark.
The Normal Heart
We've seen a few looks at 'American Horror Story' creator Ryan Murphy's forthcoming HBO tearjerker 'The Normal Heart' already, but the latest full trailer for the star-studded AIDS drama is easily the most intense, and emotionally intriguing yet, particularly for fans of its star-studded cast.
HBO continually prepares for a banner weekend this coming Sunday with the premieres of 'Game of Thrones' season 4, Mike Judge's 'Silicon Valley' and 'Veep' season 3, but also promotion for its late spring and summer assets. To wit, the latest trailer for HBO's star-studded Ryan Murphy AIDS drama 'The Normal Heart' has arrived, chock full of Emmy-caliber performances we'll be hearing about in the months to come.
Just when you thought HBO had enough to focus on between the 'True Detective' finale, our first real look at 'Veep' season 3, and yet another 'Game of Thrones' trailer, the pay-cable network hits us again. Ryan Murphy's adaptation of iconic stage play 'The Normal Heart' has its own first trailer, with everyone from Julia Roberts to 'The Avengers' star Mark Ruffalo shouting about the HIV-AIDS epidemic of the '80s.
From 'Glee' to 'American Horror Story,' Ryan Murphy fans know that the dedicated showrunner attracks plenty of talent to his work across a number of mediums. The coming months will see the 'Glee' creator tackling his first HBO movie 'The Normal Heart,' an adaptation of the Tony-winning Larry Kramer play of the same name, amassing TV and film stars alike for the effort. Latest to join the piece are big-budget flop-master Taylor Kitsch and 'The Big Bang Theory's' Jim Parsons, so will 'The Normal Heart' prove HBO's next award winner?
