Video: HBO’s True Blood Trailer Sets Stage For Season 5

May 29, 2012

Favorite Characters Are Back and New Ones Are Arriving:

Eric Season 5 PosterHBO has released a full minute and a half long trailer for Season 5 of its series, True Blood. Through a combination of scenes from upcoming episodes and character voice over, it provides the major story arc fans will be following this year, and still manages to ask more compelling questions about what is to come.

For better or worse, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) have joined forces, but remain on bad terms with Sookie (Anna Paquin). The two vampires find themselves in the middle of a battle between the newly freed Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), and the previously unseen Vampire Authority, fronted by Roman (Chris Meloni). Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) is back, and appears to be advocating for the cultivation of humans for vampire consumption. It looks like Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) will have something to say about that.

Vampires, Werewolves, Old Acquaintances and Flashbacks

The HBO trailer for True Blood’s Season 5 contains brief scenes of Eric Northman in period clothing. That means fans will be getting flashbacks and back story! Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) is back, once again looking out for Sookie. There is a brief scene of Eric and his progeny, Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) in bed together. Is it a current scene or a flashback to the time of her turning?

Still, the biggest question that needs to be answered is asked in the very first scene of the trailer: What becomes of Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley)?

Take a look for yourself! What do you think is in store for Season 5? What burning question do you want to have answered?

True Blood’s Alex Skarsgård Has Praise for Co-Stars

May 22, 2012

HBO’s Viking Vamp Dishes On Castmates:

Alexander Skarsgård as Eric NorthmanWith the return of True Blood for Season 5 on June 10, and the release of ‘Battleship’ into theaters on May 18, fans of Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) will have much to enjoy this summer.

Skarsgård’s film, ‘Battleship’, also marks the acting debut of singer Rhianna. Skarsgård shares several scenes with her and says he was not at all surprised at how easily she took to acting.

“I was honestly not surprised. Just like, watching her on stage, or her videos, you can tell [from] her energy and her charisma and personality, you know that she’s gonna be great in that part. I knew that and she really is.”

New to the cast of True Blood for Season 5, but making his return to HBO, is Chris Meloni (Oz, Law & Order: SVU). Skarsgård regards Meloni, who plays Vampire Authority member Roman, as a great addition to the cast.

“It wasn’t easy. His first day was basically him coming in. It was five pages of dialogue. Half of it was in Aramaic. That was like, ‘Welcome to the show, Chris.’ But he’s a trooper, a really amazing actor – obviously — and a great guy. We’ve had a lot of fun together on the show.”

It’s no secret that Skarsgård and True Blood co-star, Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Pamela DeBeaufort) have always held one another in very high regard.  A recent teaser video, released by HBO, gives us a peek at a scene that might indicate a rift between the Viking Vampire Eric Northman and his progeny, Pam. Does Eric release his child? Do they find a way to ‘kiss and make up’? What do you think?

As fans eagerly await the June 10th premiere of HBO’s True Blood Season 5, another teaser clip has been released. This video, the fifth released so far, is 37 seconds long and features Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Sookie (Anna Paquin).

When questioned, Alcide says he’s come to warn Sookie that Russell Edgington is on the loose. Sookie is confused since she believes that Russell is dead. The video ends as Alcide says, “You mean they didn’t tell you?”

We can’t wait for Season 5! How about you?
