Colin Farrell Reveals the "Honest Truth" About His Relationships: "I Have Not Dated for Four Years Now"

9 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Colin Farrell may be single, but he's not exactly ready to mingle. In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the 38-year-old actor is opening up about his life as a father. And along the way, he's setting the record straight about his dating life. "I have not dated for, ooh, four years now. It's just not happening, what with the work, the kids and my life," he told the U.K. publication. "I know it's not what people expect to hear, but that's the honest truth." So what's really holding him back? These days, the Golden Globe winner would rather spend quality time with his two sons who he loves with all of his heart. "It's not all about you anymore, »

Director Cary Fukanaga Talks Netflix Release ‘Beasts Of No Name’

23 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cary Fukanaga’s directing work on the ground-breaking TV series True Detective was one of the highlights of last year, and we all look forward to the Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn led second series, which arrives this summer (even though Fukanaga doesn’t direct this time out). Fukanaga also has a feature-length project due for screens this year in the form of Beasts Of No Nation, which also is a bit of a ground-breaking event, as it debuts on subscription based streaming service Netflix as well as theaters on the same date.

At the Tribeca Film Festival, Fukanaga spoke with former Focus CEO James Schamus for a Directors Series Talk where he chatted about his feature project.

“There’s not one white person in it. It’s not [Leonardo] DiCaprio saving Africa. It’s mainly an African cast. The movie is a very difficult subject. It could easily become one »

New True Detective Season 2 Motion Posters Arrive

23 April 2015 4:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We can’t imagine the hard-bitten protagonists of the second True Detective season use a lot of social media – somehow we can’t see an @RayVelcoro out there in the twittersphere – but the HBO marketing department certainly does. It’s used Twitter to debut three new motion posters for the show.We get the world we deserve. #TrueDetective pic.twitter.com/iTkuP2t04n— True Detective (@TrueDetective) April 22, 2015Head to the True Detective Twitter feed for the fully-animated gif versions. There’s a moodiness to these that mirrors the bluesy teaser trailer we’ve already seen. These men and women exist on either side of the law but are united by the murky Californian netherworld they tread. Colin Farrell is compromised ’tec Ray Velcoro who may or may not be having the whole “we’re not so very different, you and I”-chat with Vince Vaughn’s career crim Frank »

New True Detective Posters Preview the Darkness of Season 2

22 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s no surprise to anyone that there’s going to be some bad people in True Detective Season 2, but according to these two posters promoting the show’s new season, those who do dark deeds won’t just be affecting themselves or their loved ones—they’ll be harming the world. As you can see for yourself below, the new posters for True Detective Season 2 (which are actually gifs) promise that “We get the world we deserve.” While those words could mean a lot of things, I’m going to guess that it most likely has something to do with corrupt cops (who are played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch) working with criminals (such as the one being played by Vince Vaughn). Maybe these officers believe they can bend the rules and create something good by doing some bad things, that the ends justify the means. »

The World We Deserve Blazes On In New True Detective Poster

22 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 Motion Posters Are the Ones We Deserve

22 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 »

'True Detective' Season 2 Motion Posters Hit the Streets

22 April 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After the premiere of the first teaser trailer earlier in April, "True Detective" Season 2 made one thing very clear: the series is still dark. Much else may have changed — Season 2 features a new story, new cast and new director — but Nic Pizzolatto's follow-up to 2014's most buzzed-about new series isn't discarding its tough tone.  Read More: Why Rachel McAdams Needs 'True Detective' (And So Does Taylor Kitsch) The first new poster, released on the series' official Twitter account and shown below, matches that darkness. Depicting an interstate from beneath its towering presence, the night sky creates a dark atmosphere around a glowing orange fire burning in the right corner of the frame. None of the series' new cast, which includes Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams, are seen in the poster. Instead, the phrase "We Get the World We Deserve" flashes over the flickering flame in the slightly moving image. »

The True Detective Season 2 Poster Is Frankly Kind of Hostile

22 April 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We got a very serious case of the goosebumps when the True Detective season two trailer finally came out in early April, which was quickly followed by the official pictures of Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, and Colin Farrell. Now there's a new poster for the HBO crime series, which the show's account tweeted Wednesday. "We get the world we deserve," it reads, and if you click play, surprise! It's a motion poster.

New Posters For 'True Detective' Season 2 Have A Message For You

22 April 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

We're two months away from "True Detective" season two, and anyone who had doubts about the new cast or new story, were quickly silenced by that terrific first teaser trailer. And just as they did for season one, you can bet HBO will be working very hard to keep as many secrets under wraps as possible (and probably have redoubled their efforts following the leak of the first four episodes of the new season of "Game Of Thrones"). And so, today they've dropped a couple new posters, but don't expect any big clues. What we know so far: Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn star in this one about three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Oh yeah, there is also an orgy too, apparently. But as the tagline for the one sheets note: We Get The World We Deserve. »

That said, a lot of high profile films are set to be in the running for this year's Palme d'Or.

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Lineup Includes Inside Out, New Woody Allen, and More

16 April 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts.

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Daredevil episode 6 viewing notes: Condemned

16 April 2015 12:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the police in Fisk's pocket, how is Daredevil going to serve justice even if he does stop him? Here are our episode 6 viewing notes...

With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.

That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. »
