A couple of days ago we posted the first two looks HBO had released of The Newsroom and I mentioned that there was a third that had been available for the briefest of moments but was then taken down. Well, they put it back up! Not sure what the deal was, perhaps they have a timeline they are working on and someone pressed go too soon but whatever the reason, it doesn’t matter because here it is.
I love this promo. I don’t really know why I love it so much, but I do. It’s so simple, and yet it’s so pretty at the same time. I’m a fan.
Not only did they re-release that promo but HBO released a new full trailer for the show that does very little to give an idea what the new season has in store for us. As a matter of fact, if I wasn’t aware of the show and had a rudimentary understanding of the characters, I’d guess this was just as likely a commercial for perfume or something. Because perfume ads rarely make sense and either does this.
Is Jeff Daniels going to spend the second season trying to get in touch with his god complex by wandering through the desert? And can someone please tell me what 90’s era commercial the image of the TV with static showing on it reminds me of? Because I can not place it and it’s driving me insane. I thought it was an MTV commercial but no dice.
Speaking of MTV, if you were curious as to the song used in the trailer, it is ‘Can’t Pretend’ by Tom Odell. This video is worth watching if for no other reason than to watch a guy rock out playing a water bottle.
