HBO has unveiled their 2018 sizzle reel, and it is most impressive. But then again, who would expect less?
In this reel, you see bits and pieces from all of HBO’s content, and it reminds you just how great the vast majority of it is. There’s the return of Westworld, Insecure, Divorce, and the T.J. Miller-less Silicon Valley, but there’s some tastes of new documentaries (which all look incredible), Al Pacino as Joe Paterno, and a look at Fahrenheit 451. It’s awesome:
HBO continues to rule the roost, no matter who comes in to try and take the crown. Paterno looks interesting, and Fahrenheit 451 will absolutely own. On top of those newbies, we have our first look at Amy Adams in Sharp Objects, Jean-Marc Vallée’s follow up to Big Little Lies.
And we haven’t even gotten to the return of Sharon Stone in Steven Soderbergh’s experimental choose-your-own-adventure drama, Mosaic. Oh yeah, and over here we have Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter in the bizarro family drama Here and Now. And don’t get me started on this documentary collection; HBO has a deep lineup this year.
Here’s a handy list of release dates and what’s coming when. You’re probably going to need it.
