HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake. The meme may have run its course, but we decided to take a serious approach to pool Hollywood A-list talent we’d like to see in ‘True Detective’ season 2!
'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain seems to be omnipresent these days, popping up in every other movie like a gorgeous robot who does not need to sleep and never stops working. The next film on her increasingly lengthy resume will be 'Crimson Peak,' the mysterious horror film from director Guillermo del Toro.
As 'Harry Potter' stars Danielle Radcliffe and Emma Watson move on to greener pastures, so too is director David Yates with his upcoming 'Tarzan' reboot. We've heard talk of 'True Blood' heartthrob Alexander Skarsgard in the lead to wear the famous loin cloth, but what of the apple of his eye, Jane?
The "Creepy Kid" movie is officially a genre. From 'Village of the Damned' to 'The Bad Seed' to shots of Danny Torrence spaced out and making noises from the back of his throat in 'The Shining,' there's something that cuts from the screen directly to whichever gland releases that “flight” endorphin in your brain. While the marketing material makes it seem as if 'Mama' is going to be a Creepy Kid movie for the ages, it falls upon me to report that, sadly, this is not the case. This is, at root, another "Kid in Peril" flick, and while that has a value all its own, it is not quite a vehicle for inexplicable, nightmare-inducing horror.
'Mama,' the creepy-children-type horror flick produced by 'Pacific Rim' helmer Guillermo del Toro and directed by first-timer Andres Muschietti, is prepping for its initial release Friday, January 18. If you're still debating whether it's worth your money or not, you should decide after checking out these five clips from the film -- about 4:10-worth of footage in all.
Up until this point 'Zero Dark Thirty' was mostly shut out at the 2013 Golden Globes but then Jessica Chastain won Best Actress for her performance in that film.
