HBO's 'True Detective' returns with its second episode, in which Hart and Cohle follow-up on a couple of leads that inch them just a little closer to discovering the truth about what happened to Dora Lang. Tonight we also learn a little more about Hart and what happens behind closed doors -- he's not quite the straight and narrow man he presents himself to be.
"Alright, alright, alright," said Matthew McConaughey as he took the stage Sunday night, January 12, at the 2014 Golden Globes. In an unexpected turn, the A-lister won the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his acclaimed role in 'Dallas Buyers Club.' This is not to say it wasn't well deserved, but who would have thought that the man formerly haunted by 'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past' could best the likes of such Hollywood Foreign Press favorites as Chiwetel Ejiofor, Idris Elba, Tom Hanks and Robert Redford?
This marked McConaughey's first Golden Globe nomination and win, and, as the actor said in his acceptance speech, a 20-year endeavor to get 'Dallas Buyers Club' off the ground and into theaters. But, as he stood to face the camera in a slimmer physique than the classic McConaughey our '90s selves have come to know, it also marked the completion of a long journey (of nearly five years) resurrecting his career from a fading rom-com star to a serious awards contender.
'True Detective' premieres on HBO tonight, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two detectives who are teamed up to solve the case of a ritualistic serial killer in Louisiana. Cary Fukunaga ('Jane Eyre') directed all eight episodes of the first season, which vacillates between 1985 and present-day, as an eerily similar killing has taken place and the retired detectives are called upon for their help once again. This moody, cinematic procedural shows a hell of a lot of restraint for a network that's often known for pushing boundaries.
Matthew McConaughey has just won Best Actor in a drama film at the 2014 Golden Globes, announced during the live awards ceremony on Sunday, January 12, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
We're just days away from the January 12 premiere of HBO's hotly anticipated killer drama 'True Detective,' but even after the countless trailers and TV spots we've already seen, there's always room for more Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Plus, what's to come when HBO revamps the plot, cast and setting for a potential second season?
We've finally crossed the hump into 2014, wherein our beloved TV will return to us to sustain the long, dark and increasingly cold nights. And while 'Community' will lead the charge with tonight's premiere (watch it, ya turkeys!), HBO's 'True Detective' has us the most primed for its premiere with a series of recent trailers that cerebrally explore its leading men in Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
'The Wolf of Wall Street,' Martin Scorsese's most dynamic and spry film since 'GoodFellas,' is an up close and personal tour of a snarling den of unchecked depravity. Really, theaters should be handing out bottles of Purel with the tickets. What begins as jovial bad behavior spirals out into an excess and deviance rarely shown on the screen.
The first 'Interstellar' trailer attached itself to screenings of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,' giving audiences their first teaser-y look at Christopher Nolan's post-'The Dark Knight Rises' directorial effort. As the film preps to take moviegoers into the farthest reaches of space, will it be the film to beat come next year? Watch the first trailer and decide for yourself.
HBO may have devoted this past Sunday to its big 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 sendoff "Farewell Daddy Blues," though upcoming 2014 miniseries 'True Detective' made a valiant attempt to steal the show with its latest full length trailer. Borrowing a page or two from '28 Days Later,' are you ready for the moodiest preview yet of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey's new series?
Among HBO's 2014 offerings, we've kept our eye most on that Cary Fukunaga-directed 'True Detective,' more for its dark and dreary drama than its all-stair pairing of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Apart from the most recent teasers, HBO has released a new invitation to the set video that lets McConaughey and Harrelson put in their own words what will have people talking about the project.
