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.
HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 premiere "New York Sour" may have been the toast of the premium cable network on Sunday night, but among all the popping corks, the first trailer for the 2014 Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey dark crime thriller 'True Detective' emerged from the depths.

Even before we know which actors will make it into the five allotted 2014 Oscar Best Actor slots, I can make one guarantee: There will be three or four extremely talented performers on the outside looking in. Anytime someone of Michael B. Jordan’s caliber can’t make a short list of Best Actor nominations for his heart-wrenching portrayal in ‘Fruitvale Station,’ you know it must be a crowded field.
Remember how, a few years ago, we were all ready to write Matthew McConaughey off? It's hard to believe that we ever thought such a thing. His latest film, 'Dallas Buyers Club,' contains the latest in his string of brave and exciting roles, following up bravura performances in 'Killer Joe,' 'Mud,' 'Bernie' and 'Magic Mike.' The first trailer for the film has arrived and it definitely looks like a film to keep your eye on.
