Holy. Fucking --
Sorry, I have to restrain myself, but if you were watching HBO tonight and ended up seeing the fan favorite episodes, then you were probably over the moon when HBO premiered the first scenes from the upcoming season. Do not read any further if you don't want to enter into spoiler territory:
It began with a few shots of a massive crowd -- why a massive crowd? Because it's The Great Gatsby premiere and it's big. No, enormous, and while bulbs flash and stars arrive, one particular limo pulls up and Vincent Chase exits. Fans scream, Chase waves, and the footage does a quick cut to --
Turtle and Jamie-Lynn. They are being interviewed by Entertainment Tonight and the reporter inquires about Turtle:
He's my boyfriend.
Yeah, like Madonna.
Yeah, but I let her call me Sal, and only her.
It's at this point that the hysteria grows even wilder. A few miscellaneous shots of Drama and Vince talking with reporters and a huge overhead shot of the premiere. After this, we find ourselves with Eric, who is saying good-bye to a few suits.
It's gonna kill me.
Thanks for coming guys. Enjoy the movie.
Then someone taps him on the shoulder. It's Emmanuelle Chriqui and she looks stunning. They have a bit of a words match:
Wow. You look amazing.
You look great.
Thanks -- do we still get to sit next to each together?
As Eric and Sloan begin to walk the carpet, the footage goes over to Vince and Ari, who are walking down the carpet:
Nice of you to join me.
I am here and I am all about you. So you ready?
Okay then, let's go reintroduce you to the world.
Vince and Ari walk toward the opening of the theater, as the footage cuts to black and HBO says they'll be back on July 12th.
Basic impressions? Even though it was only a few minutes of footage, it definitely seemed reminiscent of the first season, especially with the way they shot the red carpet. Everyone, or at least who was in the preview, seems in top shape and I think we're in for the best season of Entourage yet.
(PS: Since I had so much trouble describing footage last year, I broke down the dialogue and short descriptions so it's easier to understand. I'm sure I missed a few things, but the main things are there).
