We may not have any Game of Thrones to look forward to in 2018, but HBO has plenty of other wares. See for yourself, as a new 2018 promo for the network brings us fresh Westworld Season 2 footage, a first look at Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects miniseries, Fahrenheit 451 and much more.
Adam McKay’s establishing a reputation as Hollywood’s foremost chronicler of the biggest hot-button issues... of ten years ago. He made blackly satirical mince meat of the subprime lending crisis with The Big Short, stepping back into our recent past to expose the avarice still at play in the world of macroeconomics today. And for his next project, he’s going to take aim at a West Wing political player loathed and feared by liberals as a power-mad despot intent on destroying America. No, not him, we’re referring to a different wannabe fascist with the public graces of Darth Vader. To be specific, Dick Cheney.
High-profile miniseries are a continually booming business for HBO, and you don’t get much bigger than Amy Adams starring in an adaptation of Gillan Flynn’s Sharp Objects. Well, you do now, as Patricia Clarkson becomes the second cast in the HBO adaptation, playing a crucial role opposite Adams.
