Here’s Where We Stand on True Detective Season 2

26 February 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The second season of True Detective is currently shooting, which means that the next installment of the series is well on its journey from meme to actual thing. It's been a few months since the last time we checked in with Nic Pizzolatto's dark dream, so here's what we know now about its cast, production, and plot. (There will be mild spoilers, so don't read this post if you want to go in as blind and pure as a newborn.) The Cast What we already knew: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star, with Farrell as "compromised detective" Ray Velcoro and Vaughn as Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire." What we know now: Rounding out our quartet of leads are two more Hollywood reclamation projects, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a "no-nonsense" sheriff, while Kitsch is Paul Woodrugh, a veteran »

Oscars: Red Carpet Has its Own Share of Surprising Turns

17 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

True Detective Season 2 Set Photos Show Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams & Taylor Kitsch in Action

17 February 2015 10:05 AM, PST | | See recent news »

True Detective Season 2 is easily one of the most highly anticipated TV events of 2015, and even though we finally know who will be starring in it and which characters they will be playing, a lot about the second season of the HBO series is still clouded in mystery. And while we don’t have any new casting information or a trailer to show you, we do have your first look at True Detective Season 2 with these photos from the set of the show in Los Angeles, which were first published by For the most part, these pictures don’t really give anything away about the new season, but they do give off a very different look than any of the images we saw during the first season of True Detective.

Review: Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi's 'What We Do In The Shadows' Is A Silly, Scary Delight

13 February 2015 3:09 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Vampires are a particularly versatile cinematic creature, easily able to transform and readjust to the scenario or metaphoric requirement. Over the past few years, they have shown up on the big screen in a number of guises — sparkly lovelorn teenagers, brooding old world counts, Colin Farrell — but a vampire comedy is a more difficult nut to crack (or vein to drain). In the summer of 2012, not even the combined might of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, and the "Dark Shadows" television series could make a blood-sucking comedy connect with broad audiences. Thankfully, "What We Do In the Shadows," the new vampire comedy from "Flight of the Conchords" principals Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, is a refreshing, laugh-out-loud funny picture that is perfectly happy with its somewhat niche appeal. It goes in late, it gets out early, and it's a total hoot. A series of title cards set up the general premise »

Vince Vaughn Talks 'True Detective' Season 2; More Photos

13 February 2015 11:13 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first photos that emerged earlier this week, new images from the True Detective Season 2 set in Los Angeles offer another look at Taylor Kitsch as he engages a gunfight alongside Colin Farrell. We also have more images of Rachel McAdams. Though, the one star we haven't seen yet is Vince Vaughn. Thankfully, the actor recently spoke with Playboy, where he offered some insight into this season. The actor reveals that he was initially cast as career criminal Frank Semyon when he approached True Detective series creator Nic Pizzolatto about writing The Rockford Files movie that the actor was developing.

"I was developing a movie version of The Rockford Files and met with Nic about writing it. He was really enthusiastic but was already working on a crime drama set in Los Angeles, and he gracefully said it was best for him to focus on True Detective. Then he »

Vince Vaughn Opens Up About 'True Detective' Season Two

As dynamic, spiritually opposite detective partners on the acclaimed first season of True Detective, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson set a formidable acting standard for the HBO mystery-drama. But Season Two star Vince Vaughn isn't worried about living up to the hype, thanks to the engrossing scripts of creator Nic Pizzolatto. "[He] is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories," Vaughn said in a recent interview with Playboy. "I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season.

Vince Vaughn talks True Detective Season 2, says it’s “very different”

13 February 2015 6:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With set-photos appearing online on a regular basis over the last few weeks, anticipation is building for the return of True Detective for its second season, which features a brand-new cast and new directors taking over from Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and company.

The cast for season two surprised many, but on many levels on adds to the anticipation and desire to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto takes the series next. Colin Farrell (Phone Booth), Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man), Taylor Kitsch (Savages) and Kelly Reilly (Flight) are the major players for the new go-around, but the most left-field casting choice was that of Vince Vaughn as a California crime-lord in danger of losing his empire. Many were perplexed, others were intrigued, but what is true is that the material on offer here is so strong that the role could change Vaughn’s career from here on out.

Vince Vaughn Says No Pressure On True Detective Season 2, Will Contain A “Very Different” Story

12 February 2015 10:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With filming well underway in Los Angeles, we’re learning more and more about True Detective season two with each day that passes. Just yesterday, we caught a glimpse of some of the newcomers that will take point in the sophomore run, including Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn, and it was the latter actor that revealed how the second season will differentiate itself from what has come before.

Speaking to Playboy, he touched upon pre-existing expectations, the prestige of series creator Nic Pizzolatto and season two’s innate tonal shift.

“[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the »

Vince Vaughn Says ‘True Detective’ Season 2 is ‘Very Different’

12 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that “True Detective” has set its cast for season two (Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly), the stars are finally starting to open up about the show’s hotly anticipated return.

In an interview with Playboy, Vaughn admits that he’s not feeling particularly pressured by the prospect of following Woody Harrelson’s and Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed performances. “[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the characters and the quality of the material.”

The season’s new setting has a lot to do with the difference in tone, according to Vaughn. “That was Louisiana. »

Rachel McAdams And Colin Farrell Feature In First On-Set Photos From True Detective Season 2

10 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it arrived unassumingly on the small screen this time last year, HBO’s True Detective proved to be an instant hit due to its mix of compelling characters and a masterful sense of suspense. It rose above its other contemporaries as a police drama with real clout behind it, but with season two slated to go the anthology route and reset the entire set-up, fans are curious about how the series will continue.

Whatever the outcome in front of the camera, today we’ve been given a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of True Detective season two, which sees Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch assume the leading roles in lieu of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

Plot details are, as you’d imagine, scarce on the ground at this early stage, but that hasn’t stopped HBO from releasing character descriptions for each of the aforementioned stars. »

First set photos from True Detective season 2 show a shootout in progress

10 February 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arguably TV’s finest new original show of 2014, True Detective has gained many admirers since its critically-acclaimed debut last year. Now, after months of rumours and casting back-and-forth, the second season of the HBO show is in full production in Los Angeles, and some set photos have emerged over at showing some of the new cast in action. In the images, we can see stars Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in action on the streets of California, in what looks to be a shootout scene…

Farrell (Phone Booth) plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him; 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 Kitsch (The Savages) plays Paul Woodrugh, »

Buzz About the Cannes Lineup Hits Berlin

9 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even before the Berlin festival is over, and the Oscars remain under wraps, the thoughts of many executives have turned to Cannes.

At this stage, the selectors of Cannes different sections have seen very little, so there is no such thing as a certainty.

Following some of the chatter and looking at which films might have the right credentials comes up with a strongly international selection for Thierry Fremaux and his team to choose from.

From Europe, two-time Grand Prix-winner Matteo Garrone’s period fantasy-horror, “The Tale of Tales,” seems a likely competition contender, with Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel heading the cast.

Fellow Italian, and previous Palme d’Or-winner Nanni Moretti, has “My Mother” (aka “Mia Madre”) while Paolo Sorrentino’s Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel-starrer “Youth” (aka “La Giovinezza,” aka “In the Future”) is also a strong competition contender.

Buzz is strong for “The Lobster,” the English-language »

Let's Take a Nerdy Deep Dive Into Marvel and Netflix's Badass 'Daredevil' Trailer

4 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This isn’t your Ben Affleck’s Daredevil.

Marvel has unveiled the first trailer for their gritty, dark take on Daredevil, the first of four 13-episode series to premiere on Netflix. And it looks nothing like the campy action flick starring Affleck, Jennifer Garner, and Colin Farrell. Take a look:

Marvel says, “Meet Matt Murdock. Blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt fights injustice by day as a respected lawyer and by night as the masked vigilante known as Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen, New York. He'll do anything to make his city a better place, but at what price?”

News: Why you should be excited about ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Captain Marvel’

But let’s take a deep dive and really break down what we’re seeing: This is Matt Murdock A.K.A. Daredevil (played by Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox).

"Daredevil"- New Footage

4 February 2015 7:31 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek your first look @ footage from the new Netflix/Marvel, 13-episode TV series "Daredevil", debuting April 10, 2015 starring Charlie Cox as lawyer 'Matt Murdock' aka superhero crime-fighter 'Daredevil':

"It does take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe," said Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb . "It’s all connected... within the Marvel universe there are thousands of heroes of all shapes and sizes...

"...but 'The Avengers' are here to save the universe and 'Daredevil' is here to save the neighborhood." 

"The way I like to think about it is that he is a man with fear", said Cox, "but he on a daily basis decides to confront that fear and to overcome it. So the title of ‘the man without fear’ is almost a title that the public in his world gives him just because of what he does. But inside himself, he’s very afraid at times. »

Long Voyage Home: "Blackhat" & Revolutions of the Digital Image

31 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It has been about six months since my last entry in this supposedly regular column. There are various excuses I could make as to why, but rather than dwell on the past, I'd like to usher this "Long Voyage Home" onward into the future, in the trailblazing spirit of Michael Mann. I couldn't avoid writing on Blackhat, a film that I found as viscerally and formally thrilling as anything I've seen at the cinema in recent memory (and that includes Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage). I've seen it three times and plan to see it at least once more on the big screen before its (likely brief, considering its box office numbers) run ends. It has taken me multiple viewings to get closer to understanding all of Blackhat's moving parts, a journey in itself that I eagerly plan to continue.
