Video Trailer For HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Directed by Martin Scorsese

Sneak Peek at Scorsese's Boardwalk Empire For HBO!

Rumor is that HBO's series Boardwalk Empire won't air until this Fall, but I'm already getting amped for its premiere. The show roster has talent in spades: Sopranos writer Terence Winter pens the script, Steve Buscemi plays a lead, and at its helm (at least for the pilot) is Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.

Scorsese knows a thing or two about portraying hoodlums (Gangs of New York or The Departed come to mind), so he should be in his element here portraying 1920s Atlantic City during the prohibition and the gangsters who run it. While it's not known yet just how involved he'll be as the show goes on (besides serving as a producer, of course), I'm crossing my fingers that the show continues to reap the benefits of his influence. The cinematic feel of this trailer is just too darn good, and it should be — an inside source claims the pilot cost $50 million to make.

The teaser doesn't give away much, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see some familiar big-screen faces pop up, including Michael Pitt and Kelly Macdonald. Bonus — my choice for Golden Globes Best Actor, Michael Stuhlbarg, is in the cast, too. Seems to me like HBO has its next big hit. Watch the video and tell me if you agree when you
