I’ve made no great secret of my excitement for HBO’s upcoming crime series True Detective, which hits the premium cable channel early next year. Early glimpses of the eight-episode limited series have set the show up to arrive as a major television event, and the talent involved is unmistakable. Today, a minute-long teaser for True Detective, titled “Slow Boil,” hit the web. It certainly lives up to its name, promising an extremely dark case and searing suspense. You can check it out below:
This series is going to be something really special, with two extremely skilled actors (Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson), a stylish director (Sin Nombre‘s Cary Fukunaga) and carte blanche to unleash all sorts of twisted mayhem, courtesy of HBO.
True Detective tracks two detectives, Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) as they repeatedly clash throughout a 17-year long manhunt for a prolific Louisiana serial killer. »

His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn rises from the grave and sets out to get her boyfriend back, even if that means turning him into one of the undead."

One gets the impression that a dozen intriguingly bizarre films are always swirling around the mind of director Joe Dante, and it is a displeasure to see that the most recent work from him happened back in 2009 with “The Hole." Since then, a ‘60s-set biopic about Roger Corman and the ghost story “Casting The Runes” with Simon Pegg have been bandied about as potential next projects, but now some financing has come through for another, and it contains the kind twisted comedy and horror elements that you’d expect from the “Gremlins” helmer. The Wrap reports that Voltage Pictures has agreed to finance and produce “Burying The Ex," a new horror comedy written by Alan Trezza and set to star actor Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene (“The Twilight Saga”), Alexandra Daddario (“Percy Jackson”) and Oliver Cooper (“Project X”). The film follows a young man, Max (Yelchin), as he moves in with »

We’ve been seeing teasers pop up for HBO’s forthcoming miniseries True Detective for a while now, but the new trailer for the show may be its strongest yet. Running over one minute and thirty seconds, it highlights the show’s strong cast while also noting the epic sweep of its narrative; the series unfolds across seventeen years.
The trailer does a great job of communicating True Detective‘s relentlessly dark, moody tone. Ominous music plays in the background as eerie scenes of desolate Southern wilderness appear. Voice-overs from Woody Harrelson’s Martin Hart and Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle also help to establish the show’s grim, gritty feel.
True Detective follows Hart and Cohle, two detectives who hunt a serial killer through the backwoods of Louisiana across seventeen years. The case takes a heavy emotional toll on the detectives, who are both also grappling with issues of their own. »

Quentin Tarantino, one of the greatest directors to eve-you know what, I'm not going to go into a whole rant why he should direct a superhero movie. Bottom-line is he is an awesome director, and should direct Daredevil. Yes, in one installment I discussed that he should direct Deadpool But a lot of people told me he should direct Daredevil instead, and I agree. Recently I released a speculative article noting that Alexandra Daddario was following Joss Whedon, I think she is following him because she might have a future role, but who knows. I did recently send out a bet to or very own Rochi Shion aka 'DCMarvelFreshman' on twitter. If I'm right about @AADaddario working with marvel, I want @Marvel_Freshman to name me his number 2, and have power user status on Cbm.— Nicholas Williams (@PastoSay) October 23, 2013 @PastoSay Lmao I can probably do the first thing— Rochi Shion »
