AIDAN TURNER GOES SHIRTLESS IN 'POLDARK' HISTORICAL BBC SERIES TRAILER! 1ST POSTERS & TRAILER FOR 'TEXAS RISING' EPIC SERIES WITH BILL PAXTON, BRENDAN FRASER, OLIVIER MARTINEZ, RAY LIOTTA, THOMAS JANE, CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY

AIDAN TURNER GOES SHIRTLESS
 IN 'POLDARK' SERIES TRAILER
Mostly television news for you today, people, starting with the first official trailer (I aired you the stolen one last year) for BBC's new historical series POLDARK which will air some time later this year with Aidan Turner playing rebellious Ross Poldark as he returns from
the American War of Independence to his home town Cornwall, discovering that it has changed dramatically since he has been away and that his love has left him for another man.


'TEXAS RISING' EPIC SERIES
FIRST PHOTOS AND TRAILER
You can also check out the first pictures and a trailer for History Channel's new historical series TEXAS RISING which will air at Memorial Day in eight episodes featuring one of the most stellar casts ever to be seen on the small screens: Bill Paxton (as Sam Houston, the father of Texas), Brendan Fraser (as Texas ranger), Ray Liotta (as Alamo survivor), Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olivier Martinez (as president Santa Anna), Thomas Jane, Crispin Glover, Jeremy Davies, Max Thieriot, Chad Michael Murray, Trevor Donovan,  Jeff Fahey, Rob Morrow and Kris Kristofferson! You can read more in our previous spotlight!

THE RISE OF A NATION
In 1836, if west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West then Texas was hell on earth. Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes, no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna. From General Sam Houston to rag tag Rangers to the legendary “Yellow Rose of Texas” — TEXAS RISING will bring a story of the human spirit rising in the face of insurmountable odds and claiming a piece of history for all eternity!

Thanks for the info on Texas Rising. My aunt will certainly like it.

DEZMOND said...

should be a popular one over in USA!

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Do these people ever tire of war, and retelling of war?
I'm in the wrong place.

dolorah said...

Hollywood may be boring on the movie front, but TV is looking good. LOL, poor Dixie; I love war movies. All that bravery, and sometimes stupidity.

Annie L said...

The Poldark reboot looks great. Aidan, wow! Kudos to BBC & PBS. Can't wait until June.

Anonymous said...

These look interesting, especially Texas Rising.

H.R. Sinclair said...

Man, you just can go away and fight in a war without everything changing back home AND your gal stepping out on you!

Dixie@dcrelief said...

I confess, I liked the 'shirtless one.'

DEZMOND said...

I wonder that too... I tend not to watch series on American history

DEZMOND said...

there's also a scene in which he is full nude in a lake :)

DEZMOND said...

did they set the date for June?

DEZMOND said...

should be epic... both of them

DEZMOND said...

and loosing all your fortunes too... and a best friend methinks.....

Luanne G. Smith said...

Yowza. I do like that Aidan Turner. Will be watching Poldark. :D

Stephanie Faris said...

Lots of manly movies coming up!

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Poldark has potential. I do like Aidan Turner.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Nice to see Brendan Fraser in something again. Looks awfully violent though. Think I'll stick to Ragnar and Season 3 of Vikings instead. More civilized.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Texas Rising sounds like something for my husband. Not me, but if he must see it, I'll be nice and let him ;)

Those are the only promo photos available for Texas Rising so far? I can't imagine they'd only have four when there's other major characters.

Donna Hosie said...

Bill Paxton is the spitting image of James Garner in that image.

Phil said...

Texas Rising? Sounds very good!

DEZMOND said...

it will air in USA too, and WOLF HALL as well, it has been sold to PBS Masterpiece, methinks

DEZMOND said...

those are series not movies :) POLDARK is totally for the ladies, by the way :)

DEZMOND said...

isn't he wonderfully shirtless in that one scene?

DEZMOND said...

yep, I'd skip both of those that you mentioned :) But it is interesting seeing Brendan as Native American

DEZMOND said...

so very generous of you :)

DEZMOND said...

only those four are circling around the net so far :( We wanted to find more, but there weren't any :(

DEZMOND said...

is he?

DEZMOND said...

you do love your battles, Phil :)

Jax said...

Texas Rising is right up my mommy's alley. I'm texting her right now!!!

Weaver said...

More great trailers. That Texas Rising sure had a hodgepodge of images in it. Funny that the cry to battle include some naked lady in a tub with a guy. Didn't seem to fit except as a lure. Typical.

DEZMOND said...

hope she will enjoy it!

DEZMOND said...

yep, every show these days has to have some nudity.... at least in USA

Feral Turtle said...

Looking forward to seeing Texas Rising. I love Ray Liotta.

Sherry Ellis said...

Poldark looks interesting.

Sherry Ellis said...

Poldark looks interesting.

DEZMOND said...

glad to hear it, Turtle!

DEZMOND said...

agreed

Theresa Mahoney said...

I try. I try ;)

Blue Grumpster said...

Wait a minute... GALLIPOLI..... and now POLdark?

DEZMOND said...

it's a poltastic week

DEZMOND said...

;)

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Me either, any more. Even current events are tainted. ;p

Dixie@dcrelief said...

So my choice is blood and gut wars, or heart attack!! ha ha

DEZMOND said...

an obvious choice, methinks

DEZMOND said...

yep, those too, I'd never watch a series on current American politics either

Blue Grumpster said...

Texas rising sounds like something my Dad would like. Too bad for him he's dead, that son of a gun.

DEZMOND said...

does that make you the son of the son of a gun? A little gun? A gunlett :)

Anonymous said...

The guy was Bill Paxton (Sam Houston) and the lady was Emily West (played by Cynthia Addai Robinson). There will be a romance in the show. I agree though the scene was put in there to entice audiences. Certainly grabbed my attention.

DEZMOND said...

you won't see us complaining :)

Blue Grumpster said...

Haha I guess it does. Maybe I should suppress the thought of being the son of a son of a gun.
