FIRST DJANGO TRAILER
FOR NEW SKY TV SERIES
It is here and it looks better than I expected: Sky has released first trailer for their ten part 1800s set Wild West series DJANGO which arrives to Sky streamers February 17th and will also air on Canal + in France starring Matthias Schoenaerts as famous gunslinger Django, alongside Nicholas
Pinnock as John Ellis, visionary founder of the town of New Babylon, Lisa Vicari as Django’s daughter Sarah, and Noomi Rapace as John’s powerful and ruthless enemy Elizabeth Thurman. The cast also includes Tom Austen as cowboy Eljiah Turner.

THE STORY FOLLOWS
Django, a gunslinger in the Wild West who is searching for his daughter who he believes escaped the murder of his family eight years ago. In following his daughter’s trail, Django comes upon New Babylon, a town at the bottom of a crater, where all outcasts are welcome and where everyone is equal and free. Here, Django discovers that his daughter is alive and set to marry John Ellis, the founder of New Babylon. Sarah – who blames her father for the death of their family, massacred many years earlier while he was at war – wants Django to leave. But he refuses to give up and does everything in his power to get a second chance with her, becoming a valuable ally for Ellis, who must defend the town from Elizabeth Thurman’s attacks. Unbeknownst to them, Django, John, and Sarah are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.
TOM JONES TRAILER
AND AIRING DATE REVEALED
Well, it looks worse than even I expected, but you will judge for yourself when you see this travesty of the first trailer for TOM JONES mini TV series that arrives to PBS Masterpiece April 30th! The adaptation of Henry
Fielding's beloved novel sees Hannah Waddingham portraying the seductive and vengeful Lady Bellaston, who comes between Tom (Solly McLeod) and Sophia (Sophie Wilde). The story follows Tom Jones, a foundling of uncertain parentage in 18th Century England who falls for an heiress, who is, of course, blackwashed in the series. James Fleet stars as Squire Allworthy, Tom’s warm-hearted adoptive father; Alun Armstrong as Allworthy’s hard drinking but loveable neighbor Squire Western, who is Sophia’s doting grandfather; Felicity Montagu as Allworthy’s reserved sister, Bridget; and James Wilbraham as her odious son, William Blifil, an unrelenting antagonist to Tom.

I may watch Django, there is no way I'm going to see Tom Jones. It looks awful. I'll stick to the Albert Finney version.ReplyDelete
Tom Jones left me shocked. I mean I expected it would be terrible, but this much? It literally looks like the cheapest most miscast travesty of an adaptation LOL And on top of it all they are all so fugly in it!Delete
I have watched a few of tv series featuring Nicholas Pinnock...he is quite charming and a good actor too. But I am not a fan of west...Tom Jones seems quite entertaining though.ReplyDelete
Django will air in your country on Sky Germany, and also in UK, Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and other Sky theritories. Possibly on SkyShowtime too in Southern Europe.Delete
My daughter would probably like Django.ReplyDelete
You might like it as well as it is dark enough, but not sure who will air it over there, Acorn or AMC?Delete
If we do get it here, Django is one that I'm sure Jason will end up watching.ReplyDelete
It does not currently have US streamer but there is Sky Atlantic, methinks.Delete
