'True Detective' Season Two Casting News To Follow Emmys Nominations


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson

It’s been a good week, a great month and a fantastic year for Nic Pizzolatto; the True Detective writer received critical acclaim for his tense, part-procedural mostly-character-study, 8-part drama, which has culminated in a strong showing in this year’s Emmy nominations.

And while season 1 of the HBO drama, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson – who will (minor spoiler) duke it out again for the Best Actor in a Drama nod come August) – is gearing up for The Emmys following a slew of nominations, Season 2’s cast is soon to become public news.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' Is Coming, President Snow Has A Message For You


Jennifer Lawrence Julianne Moore Philip Seymour Hoffman Woody Harrelson

The first teaser clip has been released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Well, we say teaser but it’s cunningly disguised as a piece of cold-blooded propaganda from the Capitol to the people living in the Panem districts.

'True Detective': Our Top 10 Rust Cohle Quotes


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson

Detective Rustin Cohle, played by Matthew Mcconaughey in Season 1 of True Detective, has become something of a cult icon. Brimming with intense existential theories and suffering with chronic nihilism, Rust Cohle has provided us with more thought provoking quotes than any character on television for quite a long time. Here’s ten of our favourite Rust Cohle quotes.

True Detective Rust Cohle Quotes Marty Hart and Rust Cohle, played by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey respectively, both of whom were highly praised for their performances

Rust Cohle on the human race: "I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight - brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.”

Brad Pitt Ready To Sign Deal To Star In 'True Detective' Season 2?


Brad Pitt Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson

There’s been rumors buzzing around that Brad Pitt is set to star in True Detective season 2 since, well, True Detective season 1 ended. The show was an international success, with both Woody Harrelson and Matthew Mcconaughey highly praised for their roles as detectives Rust Cohle and Marty Hart.

Brad Pitt True Detective Will Brad Pitt join the cast of True Detective?

It was unusual to see two such high profile actors taking time from their busy movie schedules to indulge in a little HBO series, but yikes did it pay off. With McConaughey riding high off his Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective, the actor, once famed for poorly penned rom coms, is now practically unstoppable.  We're sure that Christopher Nolan feels like the cat who's got the cream, landing him for the upcoming Interstellar.

'True Detective': Matthew McConaughey Delved Deep Into The 'Four Rust Cohles'


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson HBO

True Detective spans 17 years, follows the relationship of two men working on a ritualistic murder case and features one of the most complex, haunting and intriguing characters in TV’s recent history: Rust Cohle, played masterfully by recent Oscar winner, Matthew Mcconaughey.

Matthew McConaughey as Rust CohleMatthew McConaughey as the 2012 Rust Cohle from episode three

For his role as Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, McConaughey lost 50 pounds, something he said made him acutely aware of what was around him; he was hyper alert He couldn’t get sunlight, couldn’t eat anything outside his controlled diet, and when he found out exercise wasn’t aiding his weight loss, he – in his own words - became “hermetic”.

True Detective Season 2: Which Pairing Can Pick Up From Cohle And Hart?


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson HBO Tom Hanks Paul Dano Christian Bale Giancarlo Esposito Lupita Nyong'o Sebastian Arcelus Bryan Cranston Jon Hamm Casey Affleck Joaquin Phoenix

Nic Pizzolatto put the sincerity and quality of True Detective’s story over multiple seasons of the show, asserting that a strict 8-episode format would be condusive to a strong third act. And judging by the critical claim he’s received – his creation is being talked about in the same breath as The Wire – one is inclined to trust the man who risked everything to write the new HBO anthology series.

True DetectiveWoody Harrelson [L] and Matthew McConuaghey [R] as Hart and Cohle in 'True Detective'

“One of the reasons I wanted to do an anthology format is I like stories with endings. I like a good third act. And continuing serial dramas, they tend to have really good beginnings and really long middles and then sort of have to hustle to develop an ending. And I like the idea of telling a self-contained story,” explained Pizzolatto.

Ted Danson Freaked Out Over Morgue Visit - Autopsy "Changed My Life"

What's On In Cinemas Tonight? 'Out Of The Furnace' Starring Christian Bale


Christian Bale Woody Harrelson Casey Affleck Willem Dafoe

Christian Bale’s first foray into film since his Batman days sees him struggle to hold down the pieces of his blue-collar life in America’s deprived Rust Belt. Out of The Furnace is a brooding thriller, highlighting working-class struggles with globalisation and posttraumatic stress disorder faced by returning soldiers.

Christian Bale as Russell Baze in Out of The FurnaceChristian Bale as Russell Baze in Out of The Furnace

Bale plays Russell Baze, a hard-working, all-American family man with a proclivity for bad luck, while Woody Harrelson fits the bill as the august psychopath. Casey Affleck is Rodney Baze – brother to Russell – and is careworn following his horrific experiences on the battlefield.

Out Of The Furnace Review


Very Good

Coarse and not exactly subtle, this dark drama might disappoint viewers expecting a more traditional revenge thriller, but there's something more interesting going on here. And even though it starts at full volume and only gets more intense, the film is actually remarkably thoughtful and measured in its approach.

It's set in the Rust Belt, industrial Pennsylvania, where Russell (Bale) works in a steel mill and worries about his little brother Rodney (Affleck), who's deep in debt to a local bookie (Dafoe). Then a late-night car crash lands Russell in prison, and when he's released everything has changed. He has no job, his girlfriend (Saldana) is now dating the local sheriff (Whitaker), and Rodney is paying off his debts by fighting in bare-knuckle boxing matches. Even more perilous is the fact that all of this puts the brothers on a collision course with vicious local redneck Harlan (Harrelson), who has no intention of making their lives easier.

The film opens with a particularly brutal display of Harlan's menace, so we know what's coming. And as everything goes from bad to worse for our two heroes, the film feels almost aggressively harsh. Of course, Bale and Affleck are terrific as these damaged men whose fierce bond both helps and puts them into danger. And both actors let us see beneath the surface as their lives fall apart. In what could be the thankless ex-girlfriend role, Saldana has some surprisingly powerful moments. And Harrelson is a deeply terrifying force to reckon with.

Matthew McConaughy's Journey From Topless Rom-Commer To Oscar Contender

Matthew McConaughy is on a real hot streak right now, proving that reputations can be shaken almost as quickly as they’re gained in the fickle entity that is Hollywood. Following up his moving performance as the drifting outsider in Mud with an award winning turn in Dallas Buyers Club, the one-time, almost exclusively topless romantic comedy star is heading into The Oscars with a nomination for Best Actor, and he’s a solid chance of taking it home, too.

How To Make Money Selling Drugs Review


Excellent

This lively and engaging documentary may be set out like an informercial, but it teaches us about the drug trade with a pungent sting in its tail. The emphasis is on how America's War on Drugs has only made things worse, criminalising the wrong people and missing the whole point of the drug issue. It's a strong statement, made with passion, intelligence and a refreshing lack of political correctness.

"If the American Dream broke its promise to you, we have an answer!" This is how the film opens, informing us that the American population is the biggest market for marijuana and cocaine on earth. So keeping them supplied is a job that can't help but earn you a fortune as you climb from being a corner supplier to a local dealer to a kingpin to a cartel boss, all while learning lessons from cops and federal agents. And even working with them. Sure, there are dangers, including violence and prison, but the money you can make is worth the risk.

Obviously, this is deeply sarcastic. Telling stories are recounted on-screen by a wide variety of interviewees including activists like Sarandon and Harrelson, former dealers (Jackson), ex-addicts (Mathers, aka Eminem), cops, lawyers, scholars and even a TV series creator (The Wire's Simon). All of them point out the dangers of drugs as well as the fact that people use them because they feel good.

Free Birds Review


Good

An energetic sense of the absurd helps make this animated romp entertaining, even though the script is almost painfully stupid. But the pace is so brisk, and the stream of deranged jokes so continual, that kids will find it hilarious and grown-ups won't be able to stop smiling. So who cares if the story makes no sense at all?

Our hero is a scrawny turkey named Reggie (voiced by Wilson), who's an outcast on his farm because he's both smart and naive. When he's accidentally pardoned by the US President on Thanksgiving, he's living the high life until the meathead turkey Jake (Harrelson) kidnaps him, ranting about a mission to travel back in time to stop the pilgrims from starting the Thanksgiving turkey tradition to begin with. Sure enough, they find a time machine and off they go to 1621, where they team up with a colony of native American turkeys led by Broadbeak (David) and his feisty daughter Jenny (Poehler). But they're also being pursued by a relentless human hunter (Meaney).

The screenwriters conveniently ignore the fact that more turkeys are eaten globally at Christmas than at America's Thanksgiving, but never mind. They also pack the script with a continuous stream of riotously warped gags, random movie references and crazed action sequences. Although even a 5-year-old will be confused that 17th century pilgrims are rendered more like 19th century cowboys. This continual sense of incoherence gets even more annoying later, when the plot abandons even its own tenuous sense of logic. But by then we have realised that it's pointless to resist.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review


Extraordinary

After 2012's The Hunger Games caught us off-guard with its subtle themes, this sequel more than lives up to the hype, dramatically expanding the scale of the action while letting the actors deepen their characters. It's a full-on action epic that cleverly retains author Suzanne Collins' narrative trick of telling the story through a flawed perspective. And it provides the needed push to give the whole saga real momentum.

We join our heroes not long after the last film ended: Katniss and Peeta (Lawrence and Hutcherson) are in trouble for challenging the authority of President Snow (Sutherland) and sowing the seeds of rebellion in the districts. Now they have to travel around the nation with their team - drunken mentor Haymitch (Harrelson), preening manager Effie (Banks), quietly subversive designer Cinna (Kravitz) - soothing ruffled feathers. But of course they only make things worse. So new Gamesmaker Plutarch (Hoffman) plots a way to force them back into the games with all of the past victors, so they can be wiped out for good. And Katniss is so busy worrying about protecting Peeta that she fails to remember who the true enemy is.

Screenwriters Beaufoy and deBruyn (aka Oscar-winner Michael Arndt) inventively maintain Katniss' narrow, inaccurate point-of-view right through the film, which keeps the audience wrong-footed all the way to the end. It's an exhilarating trick that makes the tour of the districts painfully dull and the return to the games utterly horrifying. It also gives Lawrence the chance to flex her own Oscar-winning chops, further tormenting us with her inability to choose between two good men: Peeta and Gale (Hemsworth), her pal back home. She certainly doesn't trust newcomers like the mouthy Johanna (Malone) or the too-hunky Finnick (Claflin).

Something To Fill The Imminent 'Breaking Bad' Void: HBO's 'True Detective'


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson HBO

There are only three episodes of Breaking Bad left. Everything needs to be sorted out in three episodes. It seems a lot, but we’re pretty sure that once those credits roll on the season finale, we won’t be left disappointed by the ending. That fact that it’s ended, though, may well leave some people in a state of withdrawal.

Enter True Detective. Starring Matthew Mcconaughey and Woody Harrelson, Kevin Dunn, Michelle Monaghan, Alexandra Daddario and Elizabeth Reaser, the brand new original HBO drama follows two detectives as they hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana, and is set across seventeen years.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer


After becoming the first duo to win the annual Hunger Games following its 74th year, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have spread hope among the people of Panem who now feel the possibility of a revolution. However, the Capitol realise how dangerous this could be for their ordered, totalitarian society and force them to compete once again, alongside 22 other previous winners in the The Quarter Quell - an event that happens every 25th years and allows the Capitol to invent a new twist for the year's Games. Tensions arise between Katniss and Peeta who both want the other to be the victor in the 75th Hunger Games and do everything within their power to protect each other.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is the highly anticipated sequel to 2012's 'The Hunger Games'; the film adaptation to Suzanne Collins' sci-fi novel trilogy. Taking over from Gary Ross as director is Francis Lawrence ('I Am Legend', 'Constantine', 'Water for Elephants') with screenwriting from Simon Beaufoy ('The Full Monty', 'Slumdog Millionaire', '127 Hours') and Michael Arndt ('Oblivion', 'Toy Story 3', 'Little Miss Sunshine'), though we'll still see the same star cast reprising their roles. It is due to be released in cinemas everywhere on November 21st 2013.

Out Of The Furnace Trailer

His spirits lift, however, at the arrival of his brother Rodney, a soldier, who has finally come home after serving in Iraq. Unfortunately, he brings will him a burden - he's in need of money and has approached a ruthless crime boss in order to get it. They arrange for him to take part in a bare-knuckle boxing match, but when he fails to comply with the winning/losing arrangements he made with his new boss, he suddenly disappears without a trace.

Now You See Me Review


Good

The idea of magicians conducting a series of heists is a great one, but this under-developed film never quite seizes the opportunity. Even its terrific A-list cast can't make much of the lame plot. And director Leterrier is so enamoured with magic that he packs the film with whizzy digital trickery. Which completely misses the point.

At the centre are four illusionists: card trickster Daniel (Eisenberg), hypnotist Merrit (Harrelson), escapologist Henley (Fisher) and street magician Jack (Franco). They're summoned by a mysterious figure to team up for a series of elaborate performances funded by a wealthy benefactor (Caine). First up is a Las Vegas show that involves stealing millions of euros from a Paris bank and raining them down on the audience. This attracts the attention of FBI Agent Rhodes (Ruffalo) and Interpol's Dray (Laurent), who follow them to their next shows in New Orleans and New York. As does a notorious debunker (Freeman) determined to expose their secrets.

The film never quite gets the balance right, as we're not sure if we should root for these flashy young magicians or the people they're leading on a wild goose chase. But there's plenty of eye candy to keep us happy, as each whizzy stunt goes over-the-top to make us wonder what's really happening here. Everything this quartet does has an anarchist slant, stealing from the wealthy to help the needy, which adds a tinge of topicality. Although the gratuitous action scenes and ludicrous effects leave the film about as realistic as a Road Runner cartoon.

Is 'Free Birds' The New Chicken Run? [Trailer]


Woody Harrelson Owen Wilson Amy Poehler George Takei Colm Meaney Dwight Howard Keith David

The trailer for Free Birds, Jimmy Hayward's animated adventure movie, rolled out online this week. It stars Reggie the Thanksgiving turkey (Owen Wilson) who fails to convince his dumb feathered friends that they're being fattened up for the approaching festival feast, alienating himself from the group.

Watch the 'Free Birds' trailer:
