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.
Although he's been busy putting the finishing touches on 'The Wolf of Wall Street' for its upcoming Christmas release, Martin Scorsese still managed to find time to throw together this charming short film for fashion house Dolce and Gabbana. The black and white short, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson, promotes the brand's The One fragrance line, but if anything, it just makes us want to see Scarlett Johansson in a Scorsese film.
Among the many 2014 HBO premieres, we're increasingly excited for Cary Fukunaga's dark Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey drama, 'True Detective,' which today offers an orgy of evidence to its quality. Along with a brand-new trailer that debuted with last night's 'Boardwalk Empire,' HBO offers up character profiles on either lead, a creepily ominous new poster, and even a scene from 'True Detective' to come.
FX's 'American Horror Story: Coven' may have the market cornered on unsettling Louisiana-style drama, but HBO's star-studded 2014 drama 'True Detective' may yet give the 'Coven' a run for its money. The new Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey crime drama directed by Cary Fukunaga has released five brand-new teasers from the series, each as moody and dark as the ones that precede it.
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto star in 'Dallas Buyers Club,' a film from director Jean-Marc Vallée that's sure to earn both of these stars some Oscar attention. Focus Features recently debuted the latest poster for the film along with two clips, so you can preview their performances before release time on November 1.
The 2013 Huntsville High School school year commenced the week prior to the Labor Day holiday. On the first school Friday, a pep rally for the forthcoming football season was held in the school gymnasium. According to The Item, the paper of record in Hunstville, this Hornets squad was thirsting to improve on their 7-3 season of a year ago. Much like it does in the rest of Texas, high school football rules the town of Huntsville.
In the pep rally crowd, mixed among the football gods, seniors already counting the days until graduation and freshman still overwhelmed by the high school experience, could be the next voice of a pop music generation or the author of the next great american novel. Anyone of those kids could turn out to be a state senator or serial killer. The future possibilities seem limitless for the class of 2014. In 1976, an adolescent Richard Linklater sat among the faces in the Huntsville High.
Born in Houston, Linklater's family settled in Huntsville where the future self-taught writer-director would attend the local high school and accumulate some of the story ideas for his future movies. It was during this time that Linklater would cross paths with three men who were -- or claim to be-- the inspiration for key characters in Linklater's coming-of-age stoner classic 'Dazed and Confused.' Released in theaters on September 24, 1993, the movie celebrates it's 20th anniversary this month.
