2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...
The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.
Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.
The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »
It's hard to remember a time when Nicolas Cage was a viable, award contending actor, and not just a guy who appeared in movies that serve as a career punchline. But indeed, Cage does have an Oscar on his shelf, and it's thanks to Mike Figgis, who directed him in "Leaving Las Vegas." Now the pair are reuniting for a new movie, and one that was previously attached to Taylor Kitsch and Julian Jarrold (“Great Expectations,” “Brideshead Revisited”). Penned by Travis Milloy ("Pandorum"), "Exit 147" will find Cage playing a cop who gets involved in some mind games with a woman escaping the abusive husband he has arrested. Figgis says this movie will have "edgy humour" and that it's an ensemble piece with a handful of narrative threads.

With the second season of its award-winning True Detective anthology airing next month, HBO has finally seen fit to unveil a suitably atmospheric, gritty trailer for what’s ahead. Though there’s not much here in terms of detail about the plot, every principal player gets a moment in the spotlight.
Of course, I’m still stinging from showrunner Nic Pizzolatto’s admittance that the “occult history” aspect of the season got cut early on, but the presence of stars like Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn intrigues me nonetheless.
Farrell is playing a compromised detective disillusioned with his bleak existence (and likely the source of any McConaughey-esque philosophical musings this season), McAdams plays a dedicated detective determined to remain true to her badge in a morally corrupt system, Kitsch is the police officer and war veteran who uncovers a horrific crime scene, and – to top it »

UK fans won't have to wait for the new season of True Detective.
Sky Atlantic has announced plans to simulcast new episodes of the crime drama alongside its Us transmission on Monday, June 22 at 2am.
The series will also air in a yet-to-be-announced primetime slot.
The second season of Nic Pizzolatto's crime drama series moves from the Bayou to California, with a whole new tale of corruption and consequences.
California Highway Patrol officer Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) turns his community upside down when he stumbles upon a grizzly crime scene.
A tense new trailer for the drama's return debuted online on Thursday (May 14).
Meanwhile, the phrase "We get the world we deserve" was previously used in several promotional posters released by »

HBO just unveiled a new trailer for the second season of "True Detective," which stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachael McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Check it out below. In the second season, three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him, while Vaughn is playing Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. McAdams also stars as Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff's detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves, while Kitsch stars as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from »
A new trailer for season two of HBO's "True Detective" is here, and offers a bit more information than the first, wordless promo.
This latest clip is still scant on specifics, though, except to reiterate that each lead-- played by Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Kelly Reilly -- is miserable in his or her own way. Vaughn's character, a disgraced mob boss, tries to convince himself that his misdeeds are worth it with the mantra, "Sometimes your worst self is your best self."
Meanwhile McAdams's character, a cop, is losing faith in her employer, tortured over a little girl who's gone missing and mounting corruption within the department, both of which have been seemingly ignored. She repeatedly stabs a dummy in frustration, her eyes wild.
There's lots more to unpack from the fast-paced promo, including more sightings of Farrell's fantastic facial hair and plenty of slickly-produced imagery. »

According to Vince Vaughn in this new True Detective season 2 trailer, "sometimes your worst self is your best self." But if that's his way of trying to make us change our minds about The Internship, he's got another thing coming.
Jokes at Vince Vaughn's expense aside, the Delivery Man and Fred Claus star (sorry, no more jokes, promise) is looking pretty serious and stern in this latest look at True Detective season 2. Here's the trailer, if you want to see for yourself...
We also got a new batch of stills from the show, which you can see here...
And here's the synopsis for the new season, if you need a reminder:

One of HBO’s more acclaimed series last season was their freshman drama True Detective, as the show garnered acclaim for a number of aspects, including the direction of Cary Fukunaga who, in an unusual move, helmed all eight episodes of the show’s first season. What got a number of fans intrigued, however, was the news that each season of the show would stand alone, a claim that was bolstered by the departure of the cast as well as Fukunaga, leaving writer Nic Pizzolatto as the only creative link between the show’s first season and its second.
The show’s setting is poised to move from Louisiana to California, with Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Rachel McAdams filling out the lead roles this time around, and Better Luck Tomorrow‘s Justin Lin poised to take the director’s chair for the season’s first two episodes. »

It premieres June 21 on HBO.

Last month, HBO released the first True Detective Season 2 trailer, while announcing that the hit series will return Sunday, June 21. Today the network has released yet another True Detective trailer, which takes us inside the minds of the four main characters, Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) and Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams). As you can tell from this trailer, each of these characters have a number of issues they're all dealing with, on top of their professional lives.
A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California.

The second trailer for the second series of HBO’s brilliant True Detective has just been released onto the web. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson headed up season one of the drama, but there’s a brand new cast for season two in the form of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch.
In the second season, three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Colin Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him, while Vince Vaughn is set to play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

“Sometimes your worst self is your best self,” says Vince Vaughn’s Frank Semyon in the newest trailer for True Detective Season 2, and from the looks of this new footage from the upcoming season, all of the show’s main characters will be struggling with their inner demons and whether or not they should embrace their own “worst selves.” In the all-new, minute-long teaser for the new season of HBO’s hit drama, we continue to see the dark and moody material that the first trailer presented us with. Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) has bloodied knuckles, Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) angrily and repeatedly stabs a dummy she’s practicing with, and a clearly disgruntled Pal Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) tells himself “This isn’t me. I’m not doing this.” How will this all come together? I’m not sure, but I can’t wait to watch it all unfold over »

That first trailer for "True Detective" gave us all of the scowling, urban mood poetry and Colin Farrell mustache we could ever want, but it was still somewhat disappointing to try to reimmerse ourselves in Nic Pizzolatto's world without being properly reminded of what sort of circle time was. Fortunately, the second "True Detective" trailer features dialogue and it's as Pizzolattoish -- Pizzolatto-esque? Pizzolatto-y? -- as you could possibly hope for. Not only have we been granted more of Vince Vaughn's furrowed brow more of Farrell's mustache and graying temples and more of Taylor Kitsch's cheekbones, which could be used as a handy tool for breaking and entering, but we also get pearls of wisdom like: "Sometimes your worst self is your best self." And also: "My strong suspicion is we get the world we deserve." Interestingly, Rachel McAdams' Ani Bezzerides doesn't get to muse on »
