Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “True Detective” season two, episode seven, titled “Black Maps and Motel Rooms.”
The penultimate episode of the show’s second season involved a good deal of bloodshed, resulting in what looked like the death of Taylor Kitsch’s closeted Chp officer Paul Woodrugh at the hands of James Frain’s blackmailing and scheming Kevin Burris.
Fans will have to wait until Sunday to find out for sure that Paul’s days are over (chances are pretty slim that he survived) and if remaining cops Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) are right about who killed Caspere. Until then, Kitsch was nice enough to answer (well, sometimes dodge) some burning questions from Variety about his character and potentially returning to the franchise down the line. »

The penultimate episode of the second season of "True Detective" is in the bag and only one, 90-minute episode remains to sort through the carnage. The episode picks up immediately following "Church in Ruins" as Ray (Colin Farrell), Ani (Rachel McAdams) and Paul (Taylor Kitsch) must sort through the information they've gained and figure out where it takes them next. Meanwhile, Frank (Vince Vaughn) has some housecleaning to do while Paul is dealing with a bit of blackmail. The details are coming together and it's now a question of how much you've enjoyed the journey and are looking to finding out how it will all end. Side Note: During this episode I reference the fact the lyrics to the opening theme song have been changing throughout the season. For more on that click here.

Anyone who's had difficulty following the many ins, outs and dead ends of the case on True Detective season two has some company: the show's lead characters. About two-thirds of the way through Sunday's penultimate episode of the season, Ani (Rachel McAdams), Ray (Colin Farrell) and Paul (Taylor Kitsch) go over everything they know about the murder of Ben Caspere, his ties to the high-speed rail land grab and just what the heck those blue diamonds have to do with anything. Twice in the scene, someone says, "It doesn't make sense." It ends with Ani literally throwing

The logline for this week's episode of "True Detective" filled me with hope: Ray (Colin Farrell), Ani (Rachel McAdams) and Paul (Taylor Kitsch) take precautionary measures to elude detection and untangle a dark mystery. Frank (Vince Vaughn) deals with the fallout of his betrayal. Would my optimism be rewardedc The short answer is "yes". The long answer is "it's complicated". "Black Maps and Motel Rooms" snaps a lot of the frustratingly disparate elements of the season together. Many of the side detours and shoehorned characterizations coalesce in an episode that provides answers, even if some are purposely vague. For the first time all season. at least one of the characters has to deal with the mental fallout of their actions. Jumping forward 66 days prevented this type of exploration after the mid-season shootout, but Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) has no choice but to face up to the life she took at the »

Solace tells the story of a veteran FBI detective (Morgan) and his younger ambitious partner (Cornish) who enlist the help of the reclusive, retired civilian analyst, Dr. Clancy (Hopkins) to help solve a series of bizarre murders.
When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers, which come in the form of vivid and disturbing visions, put him on the trail of the killer (Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his gift of second sight is little match against the extraordinary powers of this elusive murderer on a mission.
Solace is directed by Alfonso Poyart (2 Rabbits) and also stars Xander Berkeley, Marley Shelton, Janine Turner and Kenny Johnson. The film was shot in 2013 and is still without a UK or Us release date, but will open in France next month. »

Shot in 2013 and sitting around ever since, it's probably not the best sign that the psychological, supernatural serial killer thriller "Solace" is of a particularly high caliber. That said, the cast is enough to lure more than a few viewers, with Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Abbie Cornish among the players. And now you can see the result with the first trailer. Read More: Colin Farrell Joins Anthony Hopkins In Serial Killer Thriller 'Solace' Alfonso Poyart ("2 Rabbits") directed the flick about an FBI agent who enlists he help of a retired doctor with psychic abilities to track down a murderer.

At one time it was being lined up as a potential "Se7en" sequel. Then, after years stuck in development and some major retooling and re-writing, the supernatural serial killer thriller "Solace" finally went before the cameras back in 2013 under the helm of Brazilian director Alfonso Poyart ("2 Rabbits").
Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish star in the film about an FBI agent (Cornish) who enlists he help of a retired doctor (Hopkins) with psychic abilities to track down a murderer (Farrell). The first trailer is now out from the film which is currently slated for release in France on September 9th. No U.S. date is yet set.

There has been backlash from critics and fans to the second season of True Detective, the sequel to Nick Pizzolatto’s runaway pop culture phenom. At TCA today, HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo was repeatedly asked about the response to Season 2. Lombardo stressed that he was very pleased with the new installment starring Colin Farrell. "I think you need to watch the entirety of it," he cautioned. "I think the season’s ending is as satisfying as any series… »
Even though we’re still only on the first wave of film selections for the year, the Toronto International Film Festival has a good representation of the world’s best filmmakers, including Canada’s Denis Villeneuve and Jean-Marc Vallée. The latter Quebecois director opens the Festival with latest movie, Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
This year’s lineup is also already pretty stacked on the actor front, boasting new films with the aforementioned Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet, Idris Elba, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eddie Redmayne, Helen Mirren, Jason Bateman, Julianne Moore, Tom Hardy, Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Caine.
Clearly we could keep listing Hollywood’s best and brightest stars who have films at Tiff this year, but we won’t. Let’s get to those trailers already!
Below, we’ve compiled a selection of trailers for the films of 2015’s Toronto International Film Festival, »

It was quite a turnout for a screening of Participant Media and GKids’ “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wednesday, as Hollywood glitterati turned out on a muggy evening for Salma Hayek‘s animated passion project. Dustin Hoffman, Colin Farrell, director Jim Sheridan, America Ferrera, Eva Longoria and will.i.am were among the guests mingling with producer-star Hayek, co-stars Quvenzhane Wallis and Alfred Molina, director Roger Allers, Participant’s Jeff Skoll and GKids’ Eric Beckman.
Hayek hopes the film resonates with audiences of all ages and encourages parents to bring their children, even if they think the subject matter may be too advanced for them. “I tell everyone to bring their children, because they will surprise you. Sometimes we underestimate their intellect and they are not exposed to things that challenge them.”

Our film critic scans a lineup designed to stir the emotions, including a tearjerker gamer movie, a reincarnation comedy starring Colin Farrell and a concentration-challenging nine-hour movie marathon
Another cold August in Melbourne, another lineup of film-related treats to warm the cockles of a cinephile’s heart. The program for the 2015 Melbourne international film festival is a beefy one, with some 370 titles procured from 69 countries.
This year’s festival is about “emotionally connecting audiences with film. Happiness. Fear. Anger. Surprise. Sadness. Disgust – the full range of human emotion.” Which sounds weirdly like a synopsis of Pixar’s latest movie Inside Out.

Colin Farrell has his ego in check. The actor is earning raves for his performance in HBO's True Detective, and on Monday, Farrell, 39, spoke candidly with PBS' Tavis Smiley about his career and why he no longer believes his own hype. Recalling two of his high profile roles in 2004 and 2006, Farrell said, "It all happened really, really fast. Alexander and then Miami Vice were films that were very big and that didn't work so much critically and didn't work so much financially. I was made to feel aware of the fact that all of a sudden, things that I was in weren't working. It just made me go, 'Wow, Ok.' So I can't believe in the lie that's being presented to me anymore that »
The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate. Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition." It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next." Notable films that will have premiered »
