‘Gunpowder’ Trailer: Kit Harington Rides Into the 1600s in HBO Murder Plot Miniseries

‘Gunpowder’ Trailer: Kit Harington Rides Into the 1600s in HBO Murder Plot Miniseries
The trailer for HBO’s newest miniseries “Gunpowder” makes one thing perfectly clear: Kit Harington’s hair should only be styled down. (Looking at you, Jon Snow man-bun.) In any case, the introduction to the latest three-part 17th century thriller features Harington as Robert Catesby, the driving force behind the Gunpowder Plot that enveloped London back in 1605.

Catesby, a committed Catholic, struggles to live in Protestant England where Catholics are ruthlessly persecuted. Robert Cecil, King James’ spymaster (played by Mark Gatiss of “Game of Thrones” and “Sherlock” fame), oppresses those who are openly Catholic through loss of property, torture, and death. The acclaimed cast also features Liv Tyler (“The Leftovers”) as Catesby’s cousin, Anne Vaux, and Peter Mullan (“Quarry”) as the Jesuit Father Garnet.

The series, which originally aired on BBC One, was received as a historically accurate drama with gruesome and violent scenes that shocked some unknowing viewers.

‘Divorce’ Season 2 Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Black Comedy is Done Being a Bummer — Watch

‘Divorce’ Season 2 Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Black Comedy is Done Being a Bummer — Watch
Divorce” was nothing if not unique when it debuted in the winter of 2016. Dark, unflinching, and with a black sense of humor, Sarah Jessica Parker’s return to HBO dug into the nitty gritty details of an act nearly half of America’s married population will go through during their lives. Some viewers weren’t ready to deal with it, but those who were experienced a meticulous 10-episode investigation into the depths of long-term pain and newfound freedom.

Season 2 looks to capitalize more on the latter. As Parker’s divorcee Frances notes in the opening seconds of the new trailer, her divorce isn’t a bummer: It’s a fresh start.

‘Divorce’ Season 2 Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker Plays The Dating Game

  • The Playlist
Created by comedic powerhouse Sharon Horgan (Amazon‘s “Catastrophe” — watch it) and starring two long time beloved actors with Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church, the first season of “Divorce” didn’t bring the hype that HBO seemed to be betting on. With Parker back on the channel that brought her to the spotlight with the immeasurably inspiration “Sex and the City” (its legacy somewhat tarnished due to the ill conceived film spin offs), it should’ve been a sure fire bet, drawing in both her older crowd, fans of the series, and newbies who were intrigued in seeing an “American Sweetheart” type play someone with a bit more of a foul tongue.

‘Crashing’ Trailer: Pete Holmes is Falling in Love and Working at Cold Stone in Season 2
Crashing” is retaking its place as a beginning-of-the-calendar-year HBO comedy and it’s looking a little different.

The HBO series starring Pete Holmes, loosely drawn from his own experiences rising through the New York comedy scene is heading back for a Season 2, this time with a slightly different outlook on love. After the show last left audiences with Pete finally coming to terms with his divorce, the new trailer features Jamie Lee as Pete’s big rebound fling. (Given Pete’s previous views on premarital sex, this understandably will cause some problems. But they look so happy!)

Kristin Davis Talks About Possibility of ‘Sex and the City 3’ Post-Feud: ‘I Always Have Hope!’ (Exclusive)

Kristin Davis Talks About Possibility of ‘Sex and the City 3’ Post-Feud: ‘I Always Have Hope!’ (Exclusive)
Kristin Davis truly is Charlotte York! The 52-year-old actress attended the Stand Up For Pits Benefit in Hollywood Sunday where Et’s Deidre Behar couldn’t help but ask her about the future of Sex and the City 3.

Though Davis had previously said she wouldn’t be talking about the beloved franchise, she couldn’t help but encourage fans, saying, “I always have hope!”

She remained tight-lipped on all follow-up questions, but that “hope” is more than fans have had to look forward to recently.

Davis’ co-star Kim Cattrall shut down any possibility of a third film, at least with her involved in the project. The 61-year-old actress responded to reports that it was her diva demands that kept the third film from happening.

The Best Romantic Comedies on TV, Ranked

The Best Romantic Comedies on TV, Ranked
This year has been, by all accounts, tumultuous. In the past, viewers might turn to romantic comedies to remind them that everything will be Ok; to distract themselves from the seemingly unending onslaught of disheartening news, and inspire them to believe in the future.

But 2017 has seen a slight shift in the genre’s purpose. This year, more “rom-coms” than ever are taking their stories very, very seriously. From the black comic truths of Sarah Jessica Parker’s “Divorce” to the healing power of love post-trauma in Tig Notaro’s “One Mississippi,” this batch of romantic-minded comedies are addressing issues as honestly as anything else on television.

Sure, there’s still room for flirtatious fun, “will they or won’t they” pairings, and soul-bearing emotional confessions, but the list gathered below speaks to the state of the world: Love can still conquer all, but it’s not a cloaking agent.

Bette Midler isn’t a fan of the Hocus Pocus remake

Last month it was announced that Disney is remaking the cult classic Hocus Pocus as a TV movie for The Disney Channel.

The film’s original producer David Kirschner is on board, although the project – penned by Scarlett Lacey (The Royals) – will feature a new cast taking over from Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

While original director Kenny Ortega has previously given his blessing to the remake, the same can’t be said for Bette Midler, who categorically ruled out a cameo by stating “No, no, no!” during an interview with People.

“I know it’s cheap,” said Midler. “It’s going to be cheap! I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”

Bette Midler Has Some Savage Thoughts About the Hocus Pocus Remake: "It's Cheap!"

  • BuzzSugar
It's been a solid month since we learned Hocus Pocus is getting the reboot treatment, but we're still not sure if we'll ever get used to the idea. Judging from Bette Midler's recent quotes about the news, we're definitely not alone. While hosting the New York Restoration Project's Hulaween party over the weekend, Midler took a quick break to share her thoughts about how she sees the remake coming together with People. "I know it's cheap," she said. "It's going to be cheap!" Well, damn. We should've known Midler would be the last one to hold back her opinion about the beloved 1993 Halloween film, especially when it comes to her performance as iconic red-headed witch Winifred Sanderson. There are few people who could ever step into her pointy boots, and she knows it. "I'm not sure what they're going to do with my character," she added. "My character is very,

Bette Midler Bashes Hocus Pocus TV Movie Remake

Bette Midler Bashes Hocus Pocus TV Movie Remake
Fans have waited patiently for Hocus Pocus 2, only to discover that Disney is giving them a TV reboot instead. The original cast, which includes Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy were all excited to return. But we're getting a brand new cast instead. While Hocusheads were upset over this announcement, it perhaps riled no one up quite like it did Midler. She hates the idea of a TV remake, and thinks it's going to be 'cheap'.

At this rate, it's highly unlikely that Bette Midler will devote anytime to the project, and a cameo appearance sounds completely out of the cards, with the Hocus Pocus redo coming to the Disney Channel sometime next year, perhaps just in time for the fall Halloween season.

Bette Midler has serious doubts about this new iteration of her comedy cult classic. Speaking with People Magazine, she offered this thoughts on the poorly conceived remake.
