In celebration of the third and regrettably final season of David Milchâs HBO series Deadwood,The House Next Door will spend this entire week, June 4-11, publishing essays on various aspects of the series. Every day will bring one or more piecesâa mix of reprints of old Star-Ledger stuff, links to new Star-Ledger material and original Deadwood columns by House contributors.
It pretty much goes without saying that if youâre a newcomer to Deadwood, every article appearing during Deadweek will contain spoilers galore.
Offerings include a portrait of the character of Ellsworth, by Barry Maupin; my preview of Season 3, originally published in The Star-Ledger on June 4, 2006, and reprints of my Star-Ledger columns on the Season Two finale and Season Two preview.
As the week plays out and new pieces appear, Iâll compile permanent URLâs of each post in the sidebar at right under the heading, âThe Deadwood Columns.â Due to the volume of material that will appear over the next week, Iâd suggest that if youâre a Deadhead who is linking to this site, you should link to the main address (www.mattzollerseitz.blogspot.com) and then direct people to the sidebar, where they can peruse all the offerings at once.
Please remember that the comments threads are not just a forum to discuss the series, but also a clearinghouse for all things Deadwood. Feel free to post URLâs directing readers to any Deadwood fan sites or articles on the web that you think might be of interest. And if you get a free moment, email the same link to [email protected], and Iâll add it to a comprehensive list of Deadwood links to be published on Sunday, June 11.
âSopranos Mondayâ will continue as always on Monday, June 5, with Sean Burnsâ column on the season finale (or is that midseason finale?). Deadwood fans are encouraged to revisit the House on June 12, when âSopranos Mondayâ will be replaced by a new regular feature, âDeadwood Monday.â
Finally, a personal note: This project has been in the works for six months with the encouragement and support of my wife, Jennifer Dawson, a student of Deadwood who considered it the greatest drama in the history of American televisionâan assessment I not only agreed with, but repeated in my Star-Ledger preview of Season Two, reprinted below. This week is dedicated to her.
UPDATE: Variety reports that Deadwood wonât be back as a regular series, but Milch has accepted an offer to do two freestanding two-hour movies wrapping up the narrative. For more information, click here. Also, San Francisco Chronicle TV critic Tim Goodman, one of the sharpest analysts around, writes a provocative piece excoriating both HBO and Milch for getting themselves into this situation, and advising fans, âToo bad about Deadwood, but youâll live.â

Taylor Swift Drops Star-Studded, Pride-Themed âYou Need to Calm Downâ Video
The video takes the notion of visibility as a means of acceptance to the extreme.
After years of political agnosticism, Taylor Swift endorsed two Tennessee Democrats during the 2018 midterm elections, prompting a backlash from white supremacists and their dear leader, Donald Trump. In the span of less than a year, the singer went from being the Aryan goddess of the alt-right to being called out as an agent of sodomy in a sermon by a homophobic pastor and sheriffâs deputy in her home state.
Swiftâs path to wokeness has been a long one, and while the launch of her new single, âYou Need to Calm Down,â during LGBT Pride Month might feel like the equivalent of Google slapping a rainbow flag on their logo, her activismâwhich included a recent $113,000 donation to a Tennessee LGBT organizationâseems like more than just a branding opportunity. âTo be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting,â Swift posted on Tumblr after rumors circulated that she kisses former rival Katy Perry in the video for âYou Need to Calm Down,â the second single from Swiftâs seventh album, Lover.
The clip does, however, take the notion of visibility as a means of acceptance to the extreme, featuring cameos from RuPaul, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Adam Rippon, Laverne Cox, Billy Porter, Jesse Tyler Ferguson (whom she serenaded at a surprise performance at New Yorkâs Stonewall Inn last week), and other queer celebrities, YouTube stars, and allies.
Directed by Swift and Drew Kirsch, the video opens with the pop singer waking up in a pastel-colored trailer home adorned with kitschy paintings and a framed Cher quote (âMom, I am a rich manâ). She makes herself a cotton-candy smoothie, takes a dip the cleanest above-ground pool youâll ever see, and parades through the trailer parkâs pride-themed festivities, which includes a âpop queen pageantâ featuring drag versions of Swift, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Adele, Cardi B, BeyoncĂ©, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.
The real Katy pops up for a heartfelt reunion with Swift that makes âYou Need to Calm Downââwhich seems to strive for, but falls short of, the campy eye candy that Perry has honed in her own videos over the yearsâfeel like a bachelorette party at a gay bar. But just in case you question Swiftâs allegiance to the cause, the video ends with a message urging viewers to sign her petition for Senate support of the Equality Act.
Swiftâs album, Lover, is due August 23 via Republic Records.
Mykki Blanco Is a Trans Joan of Arc in Madonnaâs âDark Balletâ Video â Watch
The self-described transfeminine rapper stars in the video from the queen of pop’s upcoming album Madame X.
While presenting Madonna with GLAADâs Advocate for Change award last month, Mykki Blanco hinted that a collaboration with the queen of pop might be imminent. Sure enough, the self-described transfeminine rapper stars in the video for âDark Ballet,â the final track to be released in the lead-up to Madonnaâs new album, Madame X.
Directed by Dutch Ghanaian visual artist Emmanuel Adjei, âDark Balletâ echoes the themes of Madonnaâs infamous âLike a Prayerâ video, awash with Catholic iconography and a storyline revolving around a persecuted black person. But thatâs where the similarities end. The singer only briefly appears in the clip, behind a black veil, and the burning crosses of her 1989 video are traded for a ceremonial burning at the stake.
The video is frenetic and non-linear, opening with Blanco held captive in a stonewalled room, wrapped in a dirty white robe. Wrists bound with rope, heâs led by clergymen to be executed for an undisclosed crime. Heâs then seen dancing, first in a cathedralâpleading with the men, who forsake himâand then in the churchâs sanctuary, dressed in a gold corset reminiscent of the iconic one designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for Madonnaâs Blond Ambition Tour. Madonna is, in effect, all over the video, but her casting of a queer person of color as the oppressed, rather than herself, spotlights the disproportionate impact of the patriarchy on minorities.
Produced by Madonna and longtime collaborator Mirwais, the song itself is an ambitious electro suite featuring a heavily Auto-Tuned denouncement of gender, lies, and fame, before the track breaks into Tchaikovskyâs âDance of the Reed Pipesâ from The Nutcracker accompanied by a robot Joan of Arc proclaiming her faith. (Thereâs a brief, blink-and-youâll-miss-it shot from Carl Theodor Dreyerâs 1928 film The Passion of Joan of Arc near the beginning of the video.) The song is a reminder of the wacky magic Madonna and Mirwais are capable of cooking up together.
Madame X will be released on June 14 via Interscope Records.
James Grayâs Ad Astra, Starring Brad Pitt, Gets Official Trailer
It has been a wild ride to the screen for the film, which Gray announced way back in 2016 at the Cannes Film Festival.
It has been a wild ride to the screen for Ad Astra, which director James Gray announced way back in 2016 at the Cannes Film Festival. Originally it was set to come out in the doldrums of January, then on May 24, but as a trailer had yet to be announced in the leadup to that date, it was inevitable that the release would get bumped again. And it was probably for the best, as a film with the obvious ambition as this one wouldnât get the attention it deserved from its studioâor is it studios?âhad it opened in the midst of the confusing Disney-Fox Hollywood merger continuing to play out at that time.
Anyway, today weâve been gifted with the official trailer for Ad Astra, and the official announcement that it will be coming out on September 20, which suggests that a world premiere at a fall festival is in order. The film tells the story of an astronaut, Roy McBride (Brad Pitt), who âtravels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet.â
Shot by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema (Dunkirk) and scored by post-minimalist composer Max Richter, Ad Astra has been likened by Gray to Joseph Conradâs Heart of Darkness, and described as âthe most realistic depiction of space travel thatâs been put in a movie and to basically say, âSpace is awfully hostile to us.ââ In addition to Pitt, whoâs also a producer on the film, Ad Astra stars Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Kennedy, John Finn, Kimberly Elise, Bobby Nish, and LisaGay Hamilton.
Watch the official trailer below:
20th Century Fox will release Ad Astra on September 20.
Terminator: Dark Fate Official Trailer: Going Back to the Well with Sarah Connor
Linda Hamilton at least makes a killer impression as Sarah visits fiery justice upon Gabriel Lunaâs terminator.
Today, Paramount dropped the trailer for the sixth entry in the Terminator series, Terminator: Dark Fate, which promises to deliverâŠmore of the same? With this film, Deadpool director Tim Miller aims to give the series a reboot: by pretending that none of the films that came after Terminator 2: Judgement Day ever existed (sorry, Rise of the Machines fans), maybe even Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. âWelcome to the day after judgment day,â reads the poster, promising the badass return of Linda Hamiltonâs Sarah Connor. And on that front, the film looks to deliver, as Hamilton certainly makes a killer impression as Sarah visits fiery justice upon Gabriel Lunaâs terminator.
But based on everything else thatâs on display throughout the trailer, weâre worried that thereâs not anything new that a film in this series stands to bring to the table besides running and gunning, with the occasional wink thrown in for good measure. Cast in point: Mackenzie Davis stars as Grace, an âenhanced humanâ who looks to fill the hanger-on role to Connor that Edward Furlongâs John Connor did to Arnold Schwarzeneggerâs T-800, now apparently living in woodsy retirement, and at the ready to give sage advice. In short, weâre not impressed, and that also holds true of that cover of BjĂ¶rkâs âHunterâ by some zombie man singer.

Paramount Pictures will release Terminator Dark Fate on November 1.
The Nightingale Trailer: Aisling Franciosi and Sam Claflin Star in Jennifer Kentâs Follow-Up to The Babadook
Today, IFC has released the first trailer for the film, which is set during the colonization of Australia in 1825.
Jennifer Kentâs The Nightingale, the Aussie filmmakerâs much-anticipated follow-up to The Babadook, premiered way back in September at the Venice Film Festival, and to mostly positive notices. Today, ahead of its U.S. theatrical release in August, IFC has released the first trailer for the film, which is set during the colonization of Australia in 1825 and follows a young Irish convict settler, Clare (played by Aisling Franciosi), who, after finishing her seven-year sentence, struggles to be free of her abusive master, Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin). According to the studioâs official description of the film:
Clareâs husband Aidan (Michael Sheasby) retaliates and she becomes the victim of a harrowing crime at the hands of the lieutenant and his cronies. When British authorities fail to deliver justice, Clare decides to pursue Hawkins, who leaves his post suddenly to secure a captaincy up north. Unable to find compatriots for her journey, she is forced to enlist the help of a young Aboriginal tracker Billy (Baykali Ganambarr) who grudgingly takes her through the rugged wilderness to track down Hawkins. The terrain and the prevailing hostilities are frightening, as fighting between the original inhabitants of the land and its colonizers plays out in what is now known as âThe Black War.â Clare and Billy are hostile towards each other from the outset, both suffering their own traumas and mutual distrust, but as their journey leads them deeper into the wilderness, they must learn to find empathy for one another, while weighing the true cost of revenge.
Watch the official trailer below:
IFC Films will release The Nightingale in NY and LA on August 2.
Downton Abbey Trailer Sees the Crawley Clan Prepping for a Royal Arrival
Kippers for breakfast, Aunt Helga? Is it St. Swithinâs Day already? No, it ainât, dear. âTis Downtown Abbey Day.
Kippers for breakfast, Aunt Helga? Is it St. Swithinâs Day already? No, it ainât, dear. âTis Downton Abbey Dayâthat is, the release of the official trailer for the Downton Abbey movie. Itâs been some three years since weâve gotten to sip tea with the Crawley clan and hang out downstairs with the servants making sure that the biscuits are placed just right on the proper fine bone china tea set. And from the looks of the two-and-a-half-minute trailer, it would appear that nothing has changed at Downton Abbey since the seriesâs finale.
In the tradition of Mad Menâs episode-ending ânext week on AMCâs Mad Menâ teasers, itâs just a series of snappy snippets that suggest weâre in for more of the same, from Maggie Smithâs Dowager Countess of Grantham snarking up a storm to Robert James-Collierâs Thomas Barrow getting his gay on. And we are here for it. The cherry on top? The king and queen are coming to Downton! And as everything must be in tip-top shape for their arrival, the Crawleys must enlist the help of the one and only Charles Carson (Jim Carter), who is treated here with the reverence of a god, or a superhero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Downton Abbey is directed by Michael Engler and written by Oscar- and Emmy-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes. And in addition to the aforementioned actors, the film stars Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Matthew Goode, Harry Hadden-Paton, David Haig, Geraldine James, Simon Jones, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, Stephen Campbell Moore, Lesley Nicol, Kate Phillips, Imelda Staunton, and Penelope Wilton.

Focus Features will release Downton Abbey on September 20.
Watch the Teaser Trailer for Andy Muschiettiâs It Chapter Two, Starring Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader
The teaser seems hell-bent on satisfying those who found the first film to be an over-directed succession of freakouts.
Today, Warner Bros. revealed the teaser trailer for It Chapter Two, Andy Muschiettiâs highly anticipated follow-up to his worldwide box-office smash It. The teaser is certainly promising, if only because it seems hell-bent on satisfying above all else those who might have found the first film to be an over-directed succession of freakouts. Indeed, while the trendy retroism of that film is certainly evident across this teaserâs three minutes, thereâs something rather impressive about how it forces us to spend so much time stewing in the atmosphere of dread that slowly overcomes the adult Beverly (Jessica Chastain) inside an old womanâs house as she comes to realize that she and other grown-up members of the Losers Club may not have fully shaken off the horror that is Pennywise.
In addition to Chastain, It Chapter Two stars James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley. Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben. And, of course, thereâs Bill SkarsgĂ„rd, who reprises his role of Pennywise.
See the teaser trailer below:
Warner Bros. will release It Chapter Two on September 6.
Francis Ford Coppolaâs Apocalypse Now Final Cut Coming to Theaters in August
The film remains as legendary for its artistry as it is for the difficulty of its making.
Francis Ford Coppolaâs Apocalypse Now is as legendary for its artistry as it is for the difficulty of its making. Some have argued that Coppola became the victim of the filmâs legend with the 2001 release of Apocalypse Now Redux, a significant re-edit of the original film put together by the director and editor Walter Murch. The two most famous additions made to the original had its naysayers for being flow-breaking: the second meeting with the Playboy playmates, and the meeting with a family of holdout French colonists on a remote rubber plantation. I recommend you read the responses to this tweet from critic Glenn Kenny to get a sense of what we have in store from the new, never-before-seen restored version of the film, entitled Apocalypse Now: Final Cut, coming our way in August.
According to Lionsgate, the film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday, has been remastered from the original negative in 4K Ultra HD.
The Beacon Theatre will be outfitted for this exclusive occasion with Meyer VLFC (Very Low Frequency Control), a ground-breaking loudspeaker system engineered to output audio frequencies below the limits of human hearing, giving the audience a truly visceral experience. In addition, the film has been enhanced with Dolby Vision, delivering spectacular colors and highlights that are up to 40 times brighter and blacks that are 10 times darker, and Dolby Atmos, producing moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism.
Audiences will be able to experience a special NAGRA myCinema theatrical release of Apocalypse Now Final Cut on the giant screen in select theaters nationwide on August 15. Then, on August 27, the film will be available to own on a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which will include a 4K disc, plus three Blu-ray discs and a digital copy.

Sonic the Hedgehog, Starring Jim Carrey, Gets Weird, Teeth-Forward Trailer
Sonic the Hedgehog and Slantâs nine-year relationship has seen its ups and downs.
Sonic the Hedgehog and Slantâs nine-year relationship has seen its ups and downs. Outside of a rare rave we extended to Sonic Colors way back in 2010, most of our writers have been mixed about the Sega flagship mascotâs output over the last decade, even as they acknowledge the wily speed demonâs nostalgic appeal. Per our own Jaime N. Christley: âA free agent with no history, no employment, Sonic has no agenda, except one: run like hell.â Paramountâs Sonic the Hedgehog, though, would appear to want to change thatânot by slowing him down but by giving him more of a purpose than just saving a bunch of captive animals at the end of every level and acting all smug about it.
Today, the studio released the trailer for the Jeff Fowler-directed film, a live-action comedy adventure that sees Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) navigating, um, âthe complexities of life on Earthâ alongside his best human friend, Tom Wachowski (played by James Marsden). That unmistakable ring sound that litters the trailer will surely bring a smile to the faces of Sonic fans young and old, but Sonic the Hedgehog feels like itâs going to be a hard sell, given its positioning of Sonicâso full of a sass, not to mention a mouthful of teethâas a pubescent nuisance. Good luck picking your jaw up from the floor once Sonic takes on Jim Carreyâs villainous Dr. Robotnik to the sounds of âGangstaâs Paradise.â
For better and worseâokay, just worseâthe film looks like itâs straight from 1991, the year that the first Sonic the Hedgehog game was released. See the trailer below and cringe for yourself as the blue speed freak gets his Coolio on:
Paramount Pictures will release Sonic the Hedgehog on November 8.
