Now that we’re almost two weeks into 2018, we can start getting ready for TV premieres. December and January are usually hiatus months, but we can still look forward to the new season trailer’s. Two trailers were released today: Baskets season 3 and Silicon Valley season 5.
Baskets Season 3 Trailer
— Baskets (@BasketsFX) January 10, 2018
Baskets is one of my favorite shows on television. Through two seasons Zach Galifianakis and Louie Anderson have starred in the funny, oddly charming show about a rodeo clown dreamer and his family. If you think that’s an odd premise, you’re right, but the show is consistently great. Season 2 ended with Christine (Louie Anderson) purchasing the rodeo that Chip (Galifianakis) worked at, and season 3 seems to focus heavily on the aftermath. If it’s anything like the first two seasons, it’ll be quality television. Baskets season 3 premieres January 23rd.
Silicon Valley Season 5
— Silicon Valley (@SiliconHBO) January 10, 2018
The season 5 trailer for Silicon Valley doesn’t give us a whole lot to work with. What we do know is TJ Miller’s Erlich Bachman will not be in it, which should trigger some changes for the Pied Piper crew. The cast is deep and talented enough to pick up the slack, but season 4 was my least favorite. Most of that was because Richard was a douche (by design) so hopefully he goes back to his uncomfortably awkward self. I’m also a huge Gavin and Jared fan, so the more of them the better. Silicon Valley season 5 premieres March 25th.
The Kennedy’s were an American institution. Starting with Joseph and his sons John, Robert and Ted, they ruled American politics during the 20th century. Unfortunately for the Kennedy’s and those close to them, any success or happiness they achieved was overshadowed by controversy and tragedy. Chappaquiddick details the controversial and tragic story that would come to define the Kennedy name.
Chappaquiddick – Trailer
The plot of the film focuses on the Chappaquiddick incident involving then US Senator Ted Kennedy. In 1969, he drove his car off a bridge and into water. While he swam to safety, his passenger and political campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne drowned inside the car. The details are sketchy from there, and most of it depends on who believe. Do you believe Kennedy, who was trying to save his own ass and career? Judging by the trailer, Ted and his father Joseph are not painted in a positive light. At the very least, the film should give an honest take on such a tragic story.
Chappaquiddick stars Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne. The rest of cast is solid as well, including Ed Helms, Bruce Dern and Jim Gaffigan.

Sicario was one of the best movies of 2015. It was a perfect mix of action and acting, which few thrillers can pull off. A lot of the credit for both goes to Benicio Del Toro, who was impossible to look away from. Del Toro has always had a commanding presence on screen, and Sicario was some of his best work. If the trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado is any indication, Del Toro is going to be a delight once again.
Sicario 2 Trailer
I’m not sure what it says about me that I really enjoy watching Del Toro kill people. But I really enjoy watching Del Toro kill people. Taylor Sheridan is back as the writer for Sicario 2 while Italian director Stefano Sollima took over the directing duties. Sheridan is quickly becoming one of my favorite screenwriters with Sicario, Hell or High Water & Wind River already under his belt. If Sicario 2 is anything close to those three, I’ll be as happy as Benicio Del Toro killing people. Josh Brolin returns for the sequel as Fed Matt Graver. The film also stars Matthew Modine & Catherine Keener.
Sicario 2 is scheduled to be released June 29, 2018.

The Ocean’s movies are some of the best and most entertaining heist films ever made. Whether you love the original or the remake (or the sequels, you murderer) they’re always a ton of fun to watch. Hopefully the same can be said for Ocean’s 8, the all female reboot that released it’s first trailer today.
Ocean’s 8 Trailer
First of all, the cast is stacked. Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Anne Hathaway. That’s a hell of a crew. Bullock plays Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney, swoon) estranged sister Debbie. As you can see from the trailer, Debbie needs to assemble a crew to pull off a major heist at the Met Gala. The target: Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) and her $150 million necklace. If you wear a $150 million necklace you probably deserve to get robbed, so I’ll be rooting for the Ocean’s crew.
Ocean’s 8 premieres June 8, 2018.
David Bowie was an enigma. He managed to be a pop culture icon and a mysterious figure at the same time. Since his death in 2016, fans have wanted an insight into the man that was David Bowie. While his peak was during the 70s and 80s have always fascinated fans, HBO is focusing on his final years in it’s new documentary.
The Last Five Years will chronicle Bowie at the end of his life and career. The main focus will be his last two albums: The Next Day & Blackstar, as well a musical he co-wrote, Lazarus. The doc will also focus on Bowie’s unwavering commitment to his artistic abilities even after he was diagnosed with cancer. With a subject as deep as Bowie and a production company as talented as HBO, this doc should be fantastic. David Bowie: The Last Five Years premieres January 8th, which would have been Bowie’s 71st birthday.

Trailer – You Were Never Really Here Starring Joaquin Phoenix
You Were Never Really Here is basically a mix between Man on Fire & Only God Forgives. Need another reason to watch it? The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as Joe, a brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. If you need more ammo than that, I don’t know what to tell you. The rest of the cast is unknown, but the film is based on the Jonathan Ames novel of the same name. Watch this trailer and cherish it. You Were Never Really Here premieres April 6, 2018.

Barry – Spring 2018
The synopsis for Barry is simple: Bill Hader stars as Barry, a seasoned assassin who discovers a new passion for acting while on assignment in Los Angeles. Add in the fact that this will be airing on HBO, and you have one of the more anticipated shows of 2018. I’m a huge Hader fan dating back to his SNL days, and I think his brand of humor will be perfect for this role. Not a lot is known about this show according to IMDb, but Alec Berg is listed as a writer and director. If you don’t know that name, you’ve probably heard of some of the shows he’s worked on. Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm & Silicon Valley just to name a few. This is only a teaser trailer, but with a spring 2018 debut planned, I’m assuming a full trailer is coming soon.
Andre The Giant Documentary
Both literally and figuratively, Andre the Giant was larger than life. At 7’4 and weighing anywhere between 460 and 530 pounds, Andre is one of the most popular figures in pro wrestling history. He dominated the sport in the 70s and 80s, wrestling all over the world to the delight of every fan. While many people remember Andre for his heel turn against Hulk Hogan during the build to WrestleMania III, he was so much more than that. In a world of bright stars and flashy gimmicks, Andre stood above them all.
HBO Sports, Bill Simmons and WWE are co producing the documentary on Andre the Giant, and HBO just released the first look. It’s just a teaser, but after the work ESPN did on the Ric Flair 30 for 30, I cant’ wait to see what HBO does with Andre’s incredible story. While 30 for 30s are great, HBO Sports is the premier sports documentary production. Broad Street Bullies. Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals. Nine Innings From Ground Zero. No matter the sport, HBO always delivers. They’ve never entered the world of pro wrestling before, but with Bill Simmons and WWE involved, I have faith they’ll put something incredible together. The doc is slated for release sometime in Spring 2018, so be on the lookout for an official trailer sometime soon.
