The second trailer is a wordless, pulse-pouding look at the four main characters, including Ventura County Sheriff’s detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and motorcyle

HBO is now entering the heavy promotion stage for "True Detective" Season 2, which stars Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch and premieres June 21.

HBO also issued materials with more details on what will happen in the first two episodes, which air in June, listing more cast members and guest stars.

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 in "True Detective."

Here’s a Description of the True Detective 2 Premiere
True Detective 2 and all its stressful, chaotic madness is almost here, but first the network has a couple more teasers up its sleeves — in the form of an extended synopsis and first-episode details. As you know, "a bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal." That quad is portrayed by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn, respectively, and they're all going to dive into a mess tied to the United States' transportation system. (Kelly Reilly, Christopher James Baker, Afemo Omilami, Chris Kerson, James Frain, Lolita Davidovich, W. Earl Brown, David Morse, and Rick Springfield will round out some of the ancillary roles.) So just how messy is that mess?Well, here's the extended synopsis for the season: Colin Farrell (Golden Globe winner for “In Bruges”) plays Ray Velcoro, a troubled detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department

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

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 ComingSoon.net 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,

NAACP Image Awards 2013: Nominees Denzel Washington, Vanessa Williams and Don Cheadle prove it doesn't have to be upstanding

The award is about image, but the image doesn't necessarily have to be upstanding.

Consider Denzel Washington as the pilot whose rescue of an airliner means the potential exposure of his vices in "Flight." That's one performance contending for outstanding actor in a motion picture in the 44th NAACP Image Awards, which NBC televises Friday, Feb, 1, from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

And that's not the only nomination gambling with the concept of "image." Don Cheadle's work as a ruthlessly ambitious consultant on Showtime's "House of Lies" has a bid for outstanding actor in a comedy series, and Vanessa Williams' sometimes questionable character on ABC's now-ended "Desperate Housewives" has her in the running for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.

One of the most poignant NAACP nominations is that of the late Michael Clarke Duncan for the Fox show "The Finder," which ended shortly before his death last year.

'Django Unchained,' 'Steel Magnolias' lead NAACP Image Award nominees

  • Pop2it
Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" remake dominates the list of this year's NAACP Image Award nominees with seven nods, while "Django Unchained" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" picked up four each in film categories, and "Grey's Anatomy" and "Treme" nabbed four in TV.

Designed to honor "the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film," the annual Image nominations reliably offer up some real headscratchers: Tyler Perry is a best actor contender for "Alex Cross"? Amber Riley is a lead actress on "Glee"? The critically acclaimed "Middle of Nowhere" isn't worth a mention as outstanding independent film?

But there's also welcome, and rare, recognition for HBO's "Treme," plus well-deserved nods across the board for "Django" and "Beasts."

A partial list of this year's nominees in the film and TV categories follows. For a complete list, including music and literary categories, visit the Image Awards official site.

Writer/Director Chad Feehan Tells Us What's 'Beneath the Dark'

Over the last few years, producer Chad Feehan has begun building a filmography for himself in independent film--most notably with his first film, feature-length production All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (which got some very positive notices in these parts before rights issues kept the film from being released in the U.S.). Now Feehan has taken on writing and directing duties for his own film, Beneath the Dark, the psychological thriller which hits DVD from IFC films on March 29th. The movie stars Josh Stewart (TV's No Ordinary Family, Law Abiding Citizen), Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos, Entourage), along with Chris Browning, Angela Featherstone, and Afemo Omilami in a psychological thriller where young couple Paul and Adrienne "Paul and Adrienne pull off the highway and into...

Trailer For “Beneath The Dark”

Never heard of this flick until now. I received the info via email likely because there’s a brotha and sistah in it who seem to have notable roles of some kind (well, he does anyway).

His name is Afemo Omilami, by the way. He’s done a lot of TV, and has seen parts in bigger films. But I’m not too familiar with his work. Her name is Carlease Burke, and her resume is somewhat similar to his.

In the film, titled Beneath The Dark, Paul and Adrienne, a young couple burning up the desolate miles on the road between Texas and La, check into the equally desolate but eternally stylish Roy’s Motel and Cafe. As if preserved in time, the motel proves to be a strange and surreal place where the guests are forced to confront the secrets that they keep – from the world and from each other.

Wake | Review - SXSW Film 2010

Director: Chad Feehan Writer: Chad Feehan Starring: Josh Stewart, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Chris Browning, Angela Featherstone, Afemo Omilami, Trevor Morgan, Christopher Gessner, Robert Maxhimer, Jeannetta Arnette, Grainger Hines Paul (Josh Stewart) and Adrienne (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) are on a road trip to Los Angeles for one of Paul’s old fraternity brothers’ wedding. It has been a long drive across the barren desert and Adrienne is getting frisky. Adrienne’s friskiness distracts Paul and causes him to lose control of the SUV. Paul realizes that he is too tired and Adrienne is too horny – and both of them are too freaked out from that near death experience – to continue any further along the highway. They discover Roy’s Motel and Cafe, which is eerily void of humanity – that is except for Frank (Chris Browning), the incredibly creepy inn keeper.

Spring Indie Film Preview 2010
Fans of Ewan McGregor, Kristen Stewart and James Van Der Beek (!) will be seeing double this spring, as arthouses and multiplexes host an array of indie films ranging from the travails of septuagenarian New Yorkers looking for love ("The Last New Yorker") to 13-year-old assassins on the hunt for their first kill ("Kick-Ass"). If real life is more your speed, there are new documentaries about reviving animation strips (the Disney doc "Waking Sleeping Beauty") and stripping down (the burlesque history "Behind the Burly Q"), while foreign wonders like the French crime epics "A Prophet" and "Mesrine" mix with Korean treasures "Mother" and "The Good, The Bad and The Weird."

But of course, why limit yourself to just what's playing in the first-run theater near you? We've also included a look at the films that will be playing Anywhere But a Movie Theater (online, on demand, and on DVD) in the next few months,

Like the years before, the line-up for the 2010 SXSW Film Festival is the goods. Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass will open up the fest and then there will be other great-looking films throughout including The Duplass Brothers’ Cyrus, SNL’s hard-r adaptation of MacGruber, Tim Blake Nelson’s Leaves of Grass, and Floria Sigismondi’s The Runaways, just to name a few.
