We have had plenty of casting news and a few photo stills, but HBO has now released a short Tease about TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2. It also tags at the end the premiere date for the Nick Pizzolatto series. It debuts SUNDAY, JUNE 21 and looks like the anchor for the summer season of shows on HBO. Without further delay here is that Tease:
It does what a tease is supposed to do – it sets a tone. As expected the sophomore season gives us a totally new set of characters and locales, but sets up the same tone of rawness and danger. We have shadows and muted lighting (this time is a neon vibe). We have brooding moments and bursts of anger; we have power and struggle. We also seem to go out on the streets and into the corporate world. We have everything down to the brass knuckles.
Colin Farrell seems to offer us the brooding, conflicted character here, while Taylor Kitsch seems hot-tempered yet stoic. Rachel McAdams comes across as tough as nails and Vince Vaughn gives us the impression that he is in control of it all in a silent commanding sort of way. Of course, that is all in the way this quick look was cut and edited.
Exact plot points are still a mystery, which is a good thing, but remember it takes place in Southern California and involves a murder that puts a trio of true detectives on a lengthy convoluted case.
If you want to get yourself caught up with all the details as we know them then hit this link to get caught up on the news and keep your eyes peeled for a larger trailer or even clips to surface during the Spring Season. And remember the date – 06.21.15 – a date we predicted way back in August of last year!
