From the sounds of it, the teaser for Damages‘ final season may have been scored by Skrillex on a particularly dark day. After a title card reads, “The beginning of the end,” the grind of electrosynth punctuates a series of increasingly urgent flashes that land on Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). But what does it all mean? Watch the teaser below. READ FULL STORY

Even a high-speed collision with a mighty locomotive can’t stop Charlie Sheen, who’s set to return to TV this June on FX’s Anger Management. The second teaser for his new series pokes fun at Sheen’s storied reputation by showing Sheen walking away from a literal train wreck unscathed — then saying, with a smirk, “Come on. Everyone deserves a 24th chance.”
This is the second Anger Management teaser that neglects to include footage from the show itself. FX’s decision to advertise its sitcom this way is a little curious, considering how well Anger tested in a preview screening. Then again, Sheen’s fans likely don’t care about the details of his next series — they just want to see Charlie being Charlie. And on that end, FX’s teasers deliver. Judge for yourself by watching the clip below.
Want to watch True Blood‘s June 10 premiere without having any idea about what will happen in season 5? If so, stay away from the spoilery trailer HBO released yesterday — which reveals that the clandestine Vampire Authority is none too pleased with what’s going on in Bon Temps. The Authority’s leader, new character Roman — played by Law & Order: SVU‘s Christopher Meloni — intends to take some drastic action to restore order. And if that wasn’t bad enough, season 3 antagonist Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) definitely isn’t encased in concrete anymore.
Check out the bloody, fantastical trailer — which also includes a sexy Eric and Pam flashback, as well as brief peeks at characters like Lafayette, Alcide, and, of course, Sookie — below the jump.
The ad itself is called “Changed Man,” and it bears out that, well, change isn’t always a good thing. Jeff Daniels plays top-of-his-game news anchor Will McAvoy, who spectacularly undermines his hard-earned reputation for objectivity when he has a Network-size freak-out at a college campus Q&A.
“When you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don’t know what the f–k you’re talking about,” says McAvoy, who later adds: “I’m a registered Republican, I only seem liberal because I believe that hurricanes are caused by high barometric pressure and not gay marriage.”
Even in the age of viral videos, such a misstep is forgivable — and, more to the point, forgettable — but does Will want to forget or be forgiven? Such is the prickly underbelly of the deliciously rat-a-tat-ing trailer for Newsroom, which also features an enviable cast including Jane Fonda, Sam Waterston, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel, Chris Messina, Thomas Sadoski, and Olivia Munn. Check it out below. READ FULL STORY
This weekend, executive producer Steven Moffat swung by the Doctor Who convention in Cardiff and debuted an action-heavy teaser for the time-hopping show’s new season. The footage focuses mostly on the season premiere — a wild west episode which was actually shot on some of the same sets as Sergio Leone’s half-crazy classic western The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. The new Doctor Who season still doesn’t have a set release date, but the teaser follows the news that there will be a new companion for the Doctor. Check out the teaser: READ FULL STORY
HBO has released the second full trailer for Game of Thrones season 2, featuring nearly two minutes of (mostly) new footage. There’s Renly and Stannis facing off, a love interest for Robb and, hello, a glimpse of a dragon (which sort of looks like a really skinny parrot). Also, for those who missed it, check out the first Thrones season 2 trailer and HBO’s season 2 cast member photos.
Here’s the new trailer: READ FULL STORY
Our first look at Julianne Moore’s portrayal of Sarah Palin in the HBO film Game Change (premiering March 10) was but a fleeting glimpse of Palin’s vice-presidential candidate acceptance speech at the 2008 G.O.P. national convention. We get a whole lot more Palin in the second trailer released today, and it pulls no punches: Moore’s Palin looks like the unprepared loose cannon the non-fiction best seller the film is based on made her out to be. But lest you think the film is one-sided, Woody Harrelson’s McCain campaign operative Steve Schmidt calls Barack Obama “a man who has no major life accomplishments.”

Netflix, who made everything right again by announcing they’re bringing back Arrested Development, will further their goodwill by bringing back The Sopranos Silvio Dante. Well, technically it’s just Steven Van Zandt, but he’ll be playing a very familiar-sounding New York City gangster.
In the upcoming Netflix crime comedy, which will be available to subscribers starting Feb. 6, Van Zandt stars as Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano, a mobster who enters the federal witness-protection program after ratting out his boss and relocates to Lillehammer, Norway, in what Netflix is calling “a gripping fish-out-of-water story.” (Hey, better to be a fish out of water than sleeping with them, amiright? Bada bing!)
Check out the full, slightly NSFW trailer for Lilyhammer (the first season will feature eight episodes) below and watch Van Zandt (who also doubles as an executive producer on the show) bring Noo Yawk to Norway, including an icy stand-off with a sheep. (“What the f— are you doin’ out here by yourself?… Where you goin’? C’mere!”) READ FULL STORY
It’s been almost two weeks since the show capped its 2011 with a lot of question marks about Will, Alicia, and Peter. Starting Jan. 8, the show returns with four straight new episodes that can start to provide some answers. The new teaser promises to be “Better Than Ever.” You be the judge. READ FULL STORY
HBO Films seems to have two essential mission statements. First, to corner the market on Al Pacino’s good acting (see: Angels in America, You Don’t Know Jack, the upcoming Phil Spector biopic. Second, and more importantly, the moviemaking arm of the network appears to be constructing a complete chronology of American history, from the Revolution (John Adams) through the Great War (Band of Brothers, The Pacific), and right up to our disturbing modern moment (Recount, Too Big to Fail).
Next year’s Game Change is an intriguing new entry in the HBO History canon, adapting the addictive behind-the-scenes muckrake of the 2008 presidential campaign into a star-studded film. Intriguingly, the film apparently won’t follow the book’s fascinating portrayal of the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama primary fight; instead, it will focus entirely on the eleventh-hour arrival of Governor Sarah Palin in John McCain’s campaign. The first trailer features Ed Harris as McCain, but predictably, Julianne Moore’s Palin steals the show. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
After watching this sweaty, sex- and fire-fueled trailer, it’s easy to see why Starz has already renewed its Spartacus franchise for a third season. The action picks up right where Blood and Sand left off, on the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus. New star Liam McIntyre shows promising heart, pecs, and facial scruff. Watch the trailer: READ FULL STORY
Welcome to the trailer for Rob Lowe‘s Lifetime movie Untouchable, bitch. (Sorry, The O.C., you have officially been trumped.) After weeks of wondering what in the world became of the handsome Parks and Rec star’s hair, we have our answer: He was filming this by-no-means-should-this-actually-be-funny Drew Peterson biopic. Was it worth the sacrifice? If this clip — which, just to be clear, is not some sort of Saturday Night Live parody of Lifetime movies — is any indication, then… absolutely. The clip is short, 30 seconds to be exact, but we learn a lot about Lowe’s interpretation of the accused wife-killer: He committed another crime by stealing Ron Swanson’s mustache and turning it gray, he’s very indecisive about how he wants the garage door, and he is untouchable… bitch.
