Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Arriving in less than two months, True Detective season 2 is gearing up for its premiere by reminding us of one of the show’s best touches: eerie, enigmatic aphorisms. While Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle, the man responsible for season one’s stream of existential wonderings, won’t return, his presence is still felt in this latest poster.
Adopting the anthology format that’s seemingly all the rage nowadays, Nic Pizzolatto’s sophomore season of True Detective drafts in a new cast, new location and new story. Switching out McConaughey and Woody Harrelson for Colin Farrell’s law enforcer, Rachel McAdams’ county sheriff and Vince Vaughn’s criminal mastermind, the next set of episodes due to bow this summer will unfold in sunny Los Angeles.
Even after the arrival of that tantalizing teaser trailer (which you can check out above), the full scope of the story won’t be made public until the show airs. »

True Detective season 2 carries some big expectations. The first season hit the zeitgeist, but since True Detective is an anthology, the only constant is writer and creator Nic Pizzolatto. So how much of season one’s magic came from Pizzolatto and how much came from director Cary Fukunaga and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson? However it shakes out, HBO is keeping the brooding, damning marketing intact. Last year’s True Detective posters carried the tagline “Man Is the Cruelest Animal”. This year, it’s “We Get the World We Deserve,” on motion posters showing L.A. traffic. When he was doing press for season one, Pizzolatto said season two was about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system,” but then walked it back. You can see from these posters that transportation will still be a major part of the story. Check »

Norman Reedus is credited with roles in over 60 films and TV shows, and while some of his performances have been impressive, none of them come close to matching the popularity he’s garnered as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s hit zombie thriller The Walking Dead.
Daryl is a phenomenon, with an enormous cult following and whole ranges of merchandise based on Reedus’ character, remarkable considering he started out as a prickly loner during the show’s first season.
Unlike many of his Walking Dead co-stars, the 46-year-old actor is working on several other projects alongside the show, with three films wrapped up ready for release towards the end of this year, and the start of 2016.

So who has toked up in Tinseltown? The bigger question might be: who hasn't? Yes folks, there are many more famous fans of marijuana than just Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson and Snoop Dogg. A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and James Franco, just to name a few, have all talked about smoking pot. So in, um, observance of 4/20, the official holiday of weed enthusiasts everywhere, we've rounded up a delightful gallery of them. Check it out—munchies are optional. »
I’ve always subscribed to the idea that film parodies only work when they’re played straight. When the situation is what brings the laughs, instead of continual references and camera winks, so to speak. Films like the Scary Movie or A Haunted House series never quite did the trick, with turning cliche-filled parts of the films they were poking fun into just a series silly jokes, with no staying power, once the scene was over. What made films like Airplane, The Naked Gun and even Top Secret! or Get Smart work so well, is how straight they were played, almost as if the viewer was the only one In on the joke, making each gag work tremendously well. The Tim Ogletree-written/Scott Dow-directed parody on all things zombie, The Walking Deceased, unfortunately falls into the former category, relying on over the top and continual references to the »

I had fun with Now You See Me. It wasn't an all time classic, but I'm a sucker for pretty much any heist movie and felt like it hit the spot well enough. The cast was great and most of them will be returning for Now You See Me: The Second Act, so I'll be more than willing to check that one out as well (especially now that Lizzy Caplan is in the fold). Steve recently caught up with star Mark Ruffalo at the junket for Avengers: Age of Ultron and was able to speak with him briefly about the sequel. While the first film focussed on a lot of big Vegas-style magic, Now You See Me: The Second Act will feature a wider variety of tricks. Check out their conversation and some quotes below. Also, look for the full Ruffalo interview from which this was culled to be hitting soon. »

It would seem that the light is winning. Whilst the likes of Mad Men are coming to an end, Breaking Bad has already shuffled off of its mortal coil and everything else seems to be migrating to Netflix, there’s still one shining beacon of brilliance on TV: True Detective. The first season of Nic Pizzolatto’s disturbing, existential crime drama was a surprise hit, the relatively unknown writer teaming with director Cary Fukunaga to coax some career-best performances out of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
With its focus on nihilistic philosophy and in-depth character studies – along with several murders committed by a cosmic horror-worshipping cult – the first season of True Detective accrued so many fans over the course of its eight episode run that HBO’s online service crashed thanks to the number of people tuning in for the finale. A similar amount of insane, sudden joy accompanied »

HBO has debuted the first look at its massively anticipated second season of True Detective. While many hold the first season starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in high, high regard, the change of personnel for the second go-around has left many slightly bemused. But fear not, as the first look of the show lays many fans’ fears to bed.
Created by Nic Pizzolatto, True Detective Season 2 will see Colin Farrell (Seven Psychopaths) plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him; Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man) plays Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves; while Taylor Kitsch (The Savages) plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past »

It has been a year since the first season and fans have been itching to see what is next for the acclaimed HBO series, True Detective. Now, a teaser gives them a small glimpse into what this season has to offer.
HBO released the first teaser for season two on Thursday with glimpses at stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. The series steers into a new direction and story after Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson led the first season.
The new season will diverge from the model of the first one with director Cary Fukunaga (who directed every episode of the season) leaving the show. Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin helmed the first two episodes of the season followed by Janus Metz Pedersen, Miguel Sapochnik, and Daniel Attias.
Nic Pizzolatto is still on board as the showrunner and writer.

HBO has just dropped the first look at Season 2 of its crime drama True Detective, which stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams and is set in Los Angeles this time around. The Nic Pizzolatto-created series was the talk of the water coolers last season with Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan hitting it out of the park and racking up plenty of awards-season love — though few actual wins aside from an Emmy for director… »
After countless casting rumors and over a year of waiting, it’s finally here: the first trailer for True Detective Season 2. The series, created by Nic Pizzolatto, was one of the biggest shows of 2014 when it premiered last year, garnering multiple Emmy nominations, including ones for its two leads, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. And while neither actor is returning for True Detective Season 2, the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch will surely make up for it, especially by the look of this trailer, which was first posted by Michael Ausiello of TVLine. In the minute-long video below, no words are spoken, as we get our first glimpse of Farrell’s Ray Velcor, McAdams’ Ani Bezzerides, Kitsch’s Paul Woodrugh, and Vaughn’s Frank Semyon,.

Filming on season 2 of True Detective is in full swing right now, with last month delivering us a gallery of snaps taken from the show’s Los Angeles locations. Besides those visual updates, one of the series’ newest additions, Vince Vaughn, spoke to Playboy recently and emphasized that this sophomore season intends to keep the richly drawn characters and strong material which made the first season a success, but eschew the story and cast. Most of this was already public knowledge, but it was still encouraging to hear Vaughn also make mention of the differences between the seasons.
One colossal difference may be the inclusion of what The Hollywood Reporter terms a “deliriously vast, Eyes Wide Shut-caliber orgy sequence involving dozens of naked bodies.” The trade dropped that titillating tidbit in a news post concerning the addition of yet more cast members; two famous adult film industry starlets: Amia Miley and Peta Jensen. »
