Can’t Wait: Trailer for HBO’s True Detective
“Something deep and dark” indeed. In case you missed it last night, HBO aired the trailer for their incredible-looking new series True Detective, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Take a look.
“This is a world where nothing’s solved…”
True Detective is written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga. It centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.
The song playing in the trailer is “Whispering” by Alex Clare.
True Detective premieres January 2014 on HBO.
