"Dexter" Season 4 Trailer

In Trailers on July 24, 2009 at 2:25 am

I’ve been a huge fan of Michael C. Hall’s work ever since Six Feet Under, but at the end of the day he’ll always be remembered as everyone’s favorite serial killer on Dexter.  The fourth season starts up in a few months, and we’ve got the official trailer from Showtime.

It’s pretty cool to see Agent Lundy return, but I think more exciting is the addition of John Lithgow as the season’s new serial killer.  Can’t wait to see how this one plays out.

Teaser Poster Available for “Punisher: War Zone”

UGO.com has the teaser poster for the sequel “Punisher: War Zone”. You can view the teaser here.

Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this sequel. Its promising, of course, but I fear its going to be tainted by the image of the first one, both positively and negatively. Aside from myself and three or four others, 2004’s “Punisher” flick didn’t do so hot. A lot of people disliked Tom Jane in the lead role (I disagree. I personally thought he nailed the film’s iteration of the character.). Jane’s no longer in the sequel, having pulled out months ago because he didn’t feel the script was up to snuff with the standards fans would have for the character, a move that should have singlehandedly earned him the love and admiration of a dozen Punisher fans. Seriously, Jane gets it.

His replacement, Ray Stevenson, looks eerily like Jane, but regardless, the unfortunate stigmata hangs over the sequel. The Lexi Alexander directed sequel is slated for a December 5, 2008 release, and also stars Julie Benz (John Rambo, TV’s Dexter) and Dominic West (Hannibal Rising, TV’s The Wire) as classic Punisher villain Jigsaw.
