Leftovers Season 2 Artwork and New Trailer: Begin Again

10 Sep

Moving to a town which did not lose any of its inhabitants on October 14 seems like a great way to start again for Kevin Garvey on The Leftovers with his new makeshift family in tow and yet it doesn’t take long for the undercurrent of fear to take hold. As with the first trailer everything starts off well and then it all goes to hell as this new location holds as many secrets as Mapletown. Coincidence or conspiracy that all goes to shit just as they arrive bringing all their baggage (literal and figurative) with them?

Expanding on who the new characters are with Regina King providing the voiceover as Erika explains how special Jarden, Texas is – “The Jarden of Eden” – and we see how many people are flocking to this town. One thing remains the same is how no one really wants Matt to talk about what happened and he is of course going to do it regardless; suffering the consequences of his refusal to be quiet. The Guilty Remnant haven’t been consumed by the fire at the end of last season and Patty despite being dead is here to torture Kevin some more. Some ghosts are just assholes.

The Leftovers Season 2The Nora/Kevin relationship takes center stage both in the new trailer and artwork with Nora appearing as this force of light and good while Kevin is tied down. Definitely picturing Patty holding on to the rope.

This relationship offered a semblance of hope for the characters and the audience; their losses were of very different kinds but their shared fuckedupness made them an ideal couple with a hint of trouble ahead. Plus Carrie Coon and Justin Theroux have great chemistry and it will be interesting to see how their relationship grows and evolves in this new location. Even if I am full on expecting Kevin to fuck it all up somehow and the trailer hints there will plenty of obstacles for them to navigate their way through. I am fully expecting to get some use out of this other Carrie Coon role gif:

For all its season 1 messiness it was still one of my favorite shows of 2014 and it is definitely on the most anticipated list for fall.

The Leftovers returns Sunday, October 4.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

3 Oct

Time to check in on the style highlights of the week and it’s all about the movie premieres including Gone Girl, Paris Fashion Week and various other events.

Carrie CoonOne of the breakout stars of this year has been The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon who came out of nowhere (well, not exactly nowhere as she’s Tony nominated) to devastate us on a weekly basis as Nora Durst. Now she’s starring in Gone Girl as Ben Affleck’s twin sister in a role that grounds the protagonist of this story – and she’s really pretty amazing in it – adding both sympathy to Nick and humor to proceedings. At the New York Film Festival screening Coon looks striking in a beautiful floral strapless gown. Bonus points for the green not too matchy-matchy clutch and strong pink lips color.

Leighton MeesterLeighton Meester gives a monochromatic twist in Balmain at the premiere for The Judge. There’s something very retro-futuristic about this long sleeved/short hemline dress that makes me think of a 1960s sci-fi or even spy show. Just so long as no one mistakes the skirt detail for spare napkins.

Allison WilliamsAllison Williams has a very different take on black and white with a sporty contrast collar and waist in super chic Vionnet at the 2014 Global Citizen Festival. It’s a slight departure for the Girls star and while it’s still ultra feminine and kinda preppy, it’s not so overtly girly.

Natalie Dormer Dior Paris Fashion weekSpeaking of chic, here is Natalie Dormer attending the Dior runway show at Paris Fashion week looking laid back and stylish all at one. This is a fantastic coat.

Kiernan ShipkaAdding some bright color to this week’s pretty muted “Out of the Box” is Kiernan Shipka in Valentino at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Hollywood Costume opening party. This is a fun, cute outfit on the Mad Men star as she continues to kill it on the red carpet, while still looking her age. A dress like this might not work on an actress over 20, but that’s definitely not a problem here. Instead of opting for strappy gold sandals or blah nude heels, Shipka’s continued the bright theme with amazing orange Valentino ‘Rockstud’ pumps.

Danai GuriraOne more “Out of the Box” injection of bold color and this one is courtesy of Danai Gurira at The Walking Dead season 5 premiere (the show returns Sunday, October 12) wearing a pink geometric Christian Siriano number. Added skirt flaps have been a big trend this week and I’m enjoying this silhouette shake up.
