We don’t know if True Detective can make Season 3 work, let alone start revisiting past characters, but one hope for a Rust and Marty reunion may be dashed. Woody Harrelson isn’t interested in any kind of return to HBO’s True Detective, even if his partner says otherwise.
You know those early 2000s romantic comedies that always had the two leads standing back-to-back with “WELP” expressions on their faces on the DVD covers? Imagine that, but with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey and you’ve got the newest international poster for The Dark Tower.
In case you forgot that The Dark Tower is actually opening this summer, Sony finally decided to participate in the movie marketing machine. After seeing close to nothing promoting the film, first trailer finally dropped last month, a mere three months out from its release in August. And over the weekend, some more new footage debuted in three TV spots.
By this point in a big film’s marketing cycle, we typically would have seen a couple trailers, a ton of posters, lengthy magazine pieces, the works. In contrast, there has been so little concrete info out there on The Dark Tower, which opens in theaters in almost exactly three months, that some people (like, y’know, me) began to doubt whether the movie would open on time, or even if it existed at all.
While decades of film journalism has taught us to treat Hollywood insiders as the sole source of movie rumors, there are plenty of places to go for production updates if you know where to look. Movie studios are businesses, after all, and business have to do things like file for copyrights, pull permits, and, sometimes, submit films and trailers to government agencies for review. That’s how we are able to bring you today’s update on the long-anticipated trailer for Columbia Pictures’ The Dark Tower adaptation. It didn’t come from some studio executive sending text messages on the sly; it came from the Consumer Protection agency of British Columbia.
It’s still uncertain how high the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower will climb, establishing a multi-movie franchise with a TV arm fleshing out the world’s expansive backstory. That isn’t stopping MRC and writer Akiva Goldsman from rolling full-steam ahead, eying a 2017 production date with Idris Elba to briefly reprise his role in adapting King’s novel Wizard and Glass. Get the latest details!
“The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed” — every fan of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series has that opening line from The Gunslinger seared into their brains. We’ve already gotten a look at Idris Elba as the heroic gunslinger Roland Deschain, but today brings our first peek at the other half of that equation thanks to some new set photos of Matthew McConaughey.
There are six movies coming out soon starring Hollywood big shots like Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg, Academy Award nominee John Malkovich, Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, Tom Cruise and many more.
HBO’s True Detective smashed time into a flat circle by its blockbuster first season, but did you know that creator Nic Pizzolatto originally intended the story as his next novel? Or that Matthew McConaughey’s Rustin Cohle only drinks eight beers over the course of the series? These are just some of the case files pulled from the twelfth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which investigates the occult drama of of HBO’s True Detective!
Brad popped out on his balcony, and tossed McConaughey a (what had to turn out to be fizzy) beer. Across the street. From balcony to balcony. Cause he's Brad Pitt. And it's New Orleans. Oh yeah, Drew Brees was there too!
Wooderson in Dazed and Confused was Matthew McConaughey's first big screen role. When he was trying to get into character, not shockingly, weed played a factor. But he also happened to be listening to a live album by The Doors. Jim Morrison inspired Wooderson's "alright alright alright" catchphrase!
