On the two True Detective: Season 2 TV spots:
In the first trailer, Los Angeles detective Ray Velacro (Colin Farrell), a corrupt cop under the control of crime lord Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), asks if he is even supposed to solve the case he’s investigating. Seymon also says at one point, “I need a direction to turn, or I may just start pulling down walls.”
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 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.

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.
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.
The NAACP Image Awards celebrates the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors. Winners will be announced during the two-hour star-studded event, which will air live on Friday, February 1 (8 Et live/Pt tape-delayed) on NBC.
Following is the list of categories and nominees for the 44Th NAACP Image Awards:
Outstanding Comedy Series
"Modern Family" (ABC)
"The Game" (Bet)
"The Mindy Project" (Fox)
"The Soul Man" (TV
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.
Feehan, who makes his directorial debut on the film, also wrote the screenplay; he produced the film with Amanda Micallef and Lea-Beth Shapiro. The film stars Josh Stewart, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Chris Browning, Angela Featherstone and Afemo Omilami.
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,
The official synopsis for Wake here:
