Christopher Nolan never gives anything away about his movies until he absolutely has to. Even then, he says as little as possible. As witness, today’s release of the first trailer for Interstellar. If a teaser trailer’s job is to intrigue, then this one does its job. Check it out after the jump.
The tag for night’s episode of True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 9/8C) – Hart and Cohle forge a truce to probe a murky string of disappearances that tie to the symbology of the Dora Lange murder and the Tuttle family – is accurate, but definitely an understatement.
Can you betray someone by not doing something? Is Rust aware he’s part of a story? True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 9/8C) became much more than just another murder mystery right from its premiere. The series has called into question various philosophies; the nature of the universe; the concept of fate, and whether a person’s character can change. In tonight’s episode, Haunted Houses, things simultaneously begin to come together and fall apart.

HBO’s True Detective (Sundays, 10/9C) is something of an anomaly in American television – every episode was written by series creator Nic Pizzalotto and every episode was directed by the same director, Cary Fukanaga. It’s a unique vision that features some of the best work by its leads – Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Which is saying one heckuva lot. My review includes a teaser for tonight’s episode, The Locked Room – check it out after the jump.
True Detective is rapidly becoming one of my favorite new shows. As the above clip shows, it is setting the bar when it comes to being creepy/disturbing without the need for any supernatural elements – just working within the development of character and events surrounding a particularly strange murder investigation (or maybe the strange investigation of a particular murder…).

True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 10/9C) has turned out to be a deeply creepy series about two detectives working a horrifying murder in 1995 and having their brains picked about a similar murder seventeen years later. It features some of the best work in the careers of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

If you saw last night’s premiere of the stunning, creepy True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 10/9C), relive one of the episode’s creepiest, most haunting moments, after the jump (language warning: may be NSFW).

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, like Inception, has been behind a veil of secrecy that is not lifted by the release of the trailer. Instead, we get a mood piece with narration by Matthew McConaughey pondering on when the moments when humanity is at its finest. It’s intriguing, beguiling and does what a teaser should do – it teases.
Interstellar will be in theaters in November 2014.
