There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.
See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season. Read More »
True Detective season two will premiere on June 21 on HBO, and now you can see the first footage from the new season. This tease doesn’t offer much, but the very first shot of a California highway interchange seems to link right to early reports about the season. Then there are shots of the primary cast, including Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, with some atmosphere that is similar to that of the first season — this looks just as heavy — but with a feel that is distinctly different. Check out the first True Detective S2 teaser below. Read More »

Now they’ve teamed up for an entirely different sort of combat engagement. Kitsch stars in Berg’s first-person Call of Duty ad — a live-action affair that, like the game series, puts the viewer in the primary role. Then it throws a set of sad cliches at us. Catch ’em all below. Read More »

With each new breakthrough, HIV/AIDS becomes more treatable. But it wasn’t so long ago that the disease was completely new and utterly terrifying. In the first full-length The Normal Heart trailer, Mark Ruffalo plays an activist who witnesses the start of the AIDS crisis in the early ’80s. He’s so outraged by the public’s clueless, callous response that he decides to do something about it.
Julia Roberts plays a doctor who treats many of the disease’s first victims, Matt Bomer plays Ruffalo’s journalist boyfriend, and Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons play other activists who get wrapped up in the cause. Watch the new The Normal Heart trailer after the jump.

Peter Berg‘s new film, Lone Survivor, is heading towards theaters with a bit more subdued promotional push than is typical for the director’s last few films. But the first trailer was compelling, as it shows men in the Navy SEAL team who targeted an al Qaeda subject in Afghanistan, and was overwhelmed by an unexpected Taliban force.
Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Ali Suliman, Alexander Ludwig, and Eric Bana all feature in the film, and you’ll see them in some new footage in this featurette. There’s also some explanation from Berg about the mission on which the film is based. In fact, the source for the movie is the book Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell, who was (as the title suggests) the one survivor of the operation. He speaks up here, too, hoping that this feature will get his story out to a bigger audience than ever. Read More »
