11.22.63 Hulu James Franco Trailer

Hulu has released another official trailer for 11.22.63, an 8-part miniseries based on the Stephen King novel (11/22/63), set to air February 15th, 2016 (appropriately so on President’s Day). Given the success of previous King-based miniseries such as The Stand and It, and that it has the people-who-rule-the-universe trifecta of J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, and James Franco, fans are in for a treat.

Check out that trailer and the other two previously released teaser trailers below.

The EagleThe Eagle
Directed by Kevin Macdonald
Starring: Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland
Release date: February 11, 2011

 
What can we expect from a fearless director who documented mountain climbers’ perilous voyage in Touching the Void and directed a film about ruthless dictator Idi Amin? Director Kevin Macdonald didn’t flinch when making either of those films and he doesn’t wince the least bit here when he decides to direct a film about a Roman soldier in search of Rome’s lost pride (a golden Eagle statuette) during the 2nd century in Briton.
 
An exuberant vitality is brought to this material, a characteristic that hasn’t been put to adequate use in recent historical epics. No slouching is occurring here. Macdonald shows a deepened concern with emotion and the ways of how the Romans and savage races live. In The Eagle we see a juxtaposing of contrasting lifestyles. It’s a treat to see this variety and vitality being distributed freely in an action film by a director who has respect for nature and the olden days of Hollywood’s infatuation with adventure films.
