Matt Smith’s Phillip Takes The Spotlight In New Trailer For The Crown Season 2

With its arrival on the streaming service just over two weeks away, Netflix’s promotion for The Crown season 2 is in full swing. Following on from the full-length trailer that dropped earlier this month, we’re now getting smaller teasers that hint at each of the major characters’ storylines. Last week it was Margaret’s turn, and this week, we’ve got a trailer dedicated to Matt Smith’s Prince Phillip.

The footage reveals that we’ll see Phillip’s childhood during World War II explored in the new season. Meanwhile, in the present day of the series, his marriage to Elizabeth will continue to be strained under the weight of the monarchy and Phillip’s urge to stretch his wings. However, it also makes clear the deep affection between the pair, with Phillip proclaiming that he knows his wife more than he knows himself.

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season
In this digital age of infinite screens and streams is an opportunity for liberation: Specifically, liberation from the families that we did not have the luxury of choosing. In 2017, Netflix and other platforms have been kind when it comes to giving us a glimpse at perhaps preferable family lives. So this Thanksgiving, it’s time we give thanks to the TV families who’ve been there for us no matter what — because, you know, they’re fictional.

The Byers (“Stranger Things”)

Despite the bloodthirsty monsters and suffocating slime, “Stranger Things” is all about the power of family. The writers kept their focus on the relationships between friends and family, and the extent that people endure in order to protect the ones they love. The Byers may not have the best luck in the world, but through every strange twist and turn they never once turned their backs on each other.

Did Jackie Kennedy Really Bad-Mouth Queen Elizabeth After Visiting Buckingham Palace?
They were America’s closest thing to royalty — and in 1961, President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy traveled across the pond for an extraordinary meeting with the world’s ultimate royals: Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip.

But while the two ladies appeared to hit it off in person, The Crown depicts some post-visit drama between the Queen and the first lady.

The Buckingham Palace visit is the subject of an upcoming season 2 episode of the Golden Globe-winning drama, which returns to Netflix December 8. The episode will feature guest stars Michael C. Hall as JFK and Jodi Balfour as Jackie,

Claire Foy & Matt Smith Glam Up For Their Final Red Carpet Premiere for ‘The Crown’
Claire Foy and Matt Smith, who play Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip on The Crown, hit the red carpet for the show’s season two premiere in London on Tuesday.

The pair glammed up to promote their final season of the Netflix series, which will pick up its third season several years on from the events of season two, meaning Foy and Smith must be replaced by older actors.

“We had a wonderful time -- we’re into the ’60s, and there are some interesting story lines,” Smith told reporters, according to People. “You think you know the story, but you actually don’t know the story.”

“Season two is a difficult watch on some level because it touches on some difficult scenes for the family,” added the 35-year-old former Doctor Who star. “We’ve got the ’60s, we’ve got Princess Margaret on a motorbike, some troubles in their marriage -- which they’re trying to get through

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Review: Despite Focusing on Relationships, Netflix’s Drama Turns Too Dreary and Cold

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Review: Despite Focusing on Relationships, Netflix’s Drama Turns Too Dreary and Cold
There are far worse ways to study history than watching “The Crown” — high school history class comes to mind, especially at schools with misplaced teachers like Mr. Kraz. But there are better ways, as well, even in television’s incomplete, sensationalized fashion. Pertinent period details frame series like “The Americans” and “Mad Men,” or there are meaningful tales told of specific historical figures like “John Adams,” the “Band of Brothers,” and “The Young Pope.” (Hey, the future will one day be historical, too, and Lenny will be pope.)

What separates these programs from Netflix’s new crown jewel is an opinion; a stance, one way or another, on what all this means; a personality of its own making rather than a suffocating allegiance to facts. And in a darker second season about the most personal problems of Queen Elizabeth’s life, this voiceless neutrality breeds an even colder, more distant,

The Crown Season 2 Review

A recurring, albeit minor, critique regarding the near-flawless first season of Netflix’s sumptuous historical drama The Crown is that the now multi-award-winning series lacked any serious perforation – especially when it came to chiseling away at the monarchical members’ seemingly impenetrable personal lives.

A ridiculously lavish serial, featuring a steadfast ensemble delivering formidable performances from start to finish, earning John Lithgow (Winston Churchill) a Primetime Emmy and Claire Foy (Queen Elizabeth II) a Golden Globe for their efforts, The Crown’s first season was a deluge of pomp and circumstance and enchanting personalities that made for highly watchable TV. However, some found creator Peter Morgan’s initial sculpting of the Monarchy more ideal for the powers that be as the royal family were more so seen, rather than heard.

Triumphantly, in its second season, The Crown does away with deference and protocol, unspooling the tightly coiled yarns of several of

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race
The roles in the lead actress category run a wide range, from the precocious 6-year-old Brooklyn Prince in “The Florida Project” to 82-year-old Judi Dench playing the queen (again) in “Victoria & Abdul.” Other powerful women include previous nominees Jessica Chastain as a poker queen in “Molly’s Game,” Kate Winslet as a cheating wife in “Wonder Wheel” and Saoirse Ronan in the beloved coming-of-age tale “Lady Bird.” (At the age of 23, it’s interesting that Ronan could amost play the overdue card; she has two previous nominations and came close to winning with 2016’s “Brooklyn.”) They could battle previous winner Jennifer Lawrence; never underestimate the Academy love for her, even if “mother!” didn’t light up the box office. Other winners: Frances McDormand, delivering a fierce performance as a mother searching for justice in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and, of course, Meryl Streep.
