'The Leftovers' full trailer: The amazing disappearing people -- VIDEO

Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof’s next project, The Leftovers, is an adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s eponymous 2011 bestseller. And based on the show’s trailer, it has just about everything HBO could ask for: Nudity, mystery, violence, tears, and as a bonus, disappearing people.

After 2 percent of the world’s population mysteriously disappears, the residents of New York are left to pick up their lives. The show (starring Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Amy Brenneman, and more) follows those New Yorkers three years after the event. And from the looks of it, things didn’t exactly go back to normal.

HBO makes huge Amazon Prime deal: See which shows are going online

Big news for HBO fans: You can now watch many shows from the pay cable service without actually paying for cable, or buying the DVDs (or pirating the shows).

HBO has made a major deal with Amazon that gives Amazon Prime members unlimited streaming access to past seasons of shows like The Sopranos and Deadwood, as well as select seasons of current series such as True Blood and Boardwalk Empire. (See the full list below.) This is HBO’s first deal licensing its content to a streaming service. On average, the deal covers content that is at least three years old. For newer seasons, sorry — HBO still requires you get a subscription with a cable or satellite provider.

The network has previously licensed some content to basic cable networks, a move that’s actually keeping a few shows off Amazon Prime for the time being since they’re tied up in other deals (namely, Sex and the City, Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm). READ FULL STORY

John Turturro replaces Robert De Niro in HBO's 'Criminal Justice'

John Turturro has replaced Robert De Niro as the star of Criminal Justice, the seven-hour HBO miniseries that was once conceived as a James Gandolfini vehicle. Based on a 2008 BBC drama of the same name, Justice was slated to be The Sopranos‘ star’s high-profile return to an HBO series, and he had filmed the pilot before he died last June. HBO recruited De Niro in September to assume the lead role, but as the Hollywood Reporter initially wrote, he’s now out, as is his Tribeca Films production company.

Turturro will play Jack Stone, an unscrupulous New York City lawyer who defends a Pakistani man (Riz Ahmed) accused of murder. Bill Camp, Peyman Moaadi (A Separation), and Poorna Jagannathan also star. Steve Zaillian (All the King’s Men) will direct a script written by novelist Richard Price (The Wire).

 

'True Blood' final season trailer: Left for dead

When True Blood‘s sixth season ended, we were told that the show’s seventh and final year would bring the focus back to the town of Bon Temps, and the show’s first season 7 trailer makes good on that promise. It seems as though the Hep V virus is invading Bon Temps, and the government… well.. apparently couldn’t care less.

Watch the first trailer for True Blood‘s season 7 below.

'Game of Thrones' star Alfie Allen on why Theon's torment gets easier to watch

Game-of-Thrones-S4-Theon.jpg

Are you feeling sorry for him yet? Theon Greyjoy — that callous, ambitious, and ultimately murderous former Stark ward — has endured more torment than any surviving Game of Thrones character. After betraying the Stark family, Theon (Alfie Allen) was captured by House Bolton, where he’s been subjected to all sorts of physical and psychological torments at the hands of Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon).

Last year’s Theon scenes were tough for many HBO viewers to witness, and so far this season Theon’s situation doesn’t seem all that much better — he’s out of the dungeon, at least, but now seems utterly subservient and beaten down.

Not too many people compare Thrones to The Lord of the Rings now that the HBO drama has so thoroughly distinguished itself from that other fantasy classic. Yet Theon increasingly brings to mind Tolkien’s most sharply drawn character — Sméagol/Gollum. Like Tolkien’s creation, Theon has even embraced a new name: “Reek.”

We spoke briefly to Allen by phone shortly before the Thrones season premiere: READ FULL STORY

'The Leftovers': Walt Whitman's words fuel latest teaser -- VIDEO

Lindelof created the series, along with Tom Perrotta, who wrote the book — also called The Leftovers — the show is based off of. READ FULL STORY

Millions go missing in HBO's 'The Leftovers' teaser -- VIDEO

People mysteriously disappear in HBO’s upcoming series The Leftovers – a lot of people.

“Two percent doesn’t sound like much,” a narrator tells us as images of crowds around the world flash across the screen. “But two percent of the entire planet, of every person on it, that’s more than the world’s ten largest cities combined.” That’s the amount of the world’s population that suddenly disappears one day, setting the series into motion — including a really cute baby we see briefly in the trailer, only to find it missing seconds later.
