True Detective
"This is a world where nothing is solved," Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle declares in this new trailer for "True Detective." And it might seem an odd choice of words for a series built around a mystery that spans years, also ensnaring fellow detective Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), but that's just a jumping off point. Written by Nic Pizzolatto, and directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre," "Jane Eyre") the series will use a serious crime to deal with themes of death and darkness.

Earlier today, we dropped our list of 10 Films To See In January, and while all due respect to those movies, we think some of the best drama you're going to see this month is going to be at home on HBO. We know we've been talking about this one for a while, but just like that, "True Detective" will start airing in just over a week and a brand new trailer featuring lots of new footage is here to get you excited all over again.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Ferociously vulgar, outrageously funny, a film about excess that nearly ran four hours long that still features over 50 songs in the movie, there is nothing nuanced or subtle about Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's a go-for-broke, NC-17 skirting tale of debauchery that has left few feeling ambivalent about the picture. But if you've yet to sneak out of the family obligations and make it to the cinema to see this one for yourself, here are a few teases to get you moving. And if you have seen the flick, here's even more to dive into.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
In the immortal words of Rick James, “Cocaine is a helluva drug.” And in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” an outrageous, nearly three-hour-long hedonistic opus and cynical paean to American privilege, greed and debauchery, the characters hoover up mountains and mountains of cocaine. Based on Jordan Belfort’s memoirs about his time running a boiler room on Wall Street, his rise to extreme wealth, his wicked acts of decadence, and his inevitable downfall, “The Wolf Of Wall Street” is orgiastic and shocking; a gluttonous smorgasbord of sex, drugs, strippers, depravity and worse. Intensely perverse on many levels, it’s also one of the most darkly hilarious movies of the year.

What else can we possibly say about "True Detective" at this point except that the few weeks left to 2014 seem far too long given our anticipation for this series. As always, HBO continues to quicken our pulse for this one with more great promos for the show.

True Detective Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson
Bubblin' up out of the bayou come three more teasers for HBO's January series “True Detective," and we are pretty darn excited for this show right here. Two of the clips will introduce you to our leading men: Detectives Cohle (Matthew McConaughey, in the glorious middle of a spectacular career resurrection, as we recently noted) and Hart (Woody Harrelson, in no need whatsoever of a resurrection, thank you very much) as, respectively, a whiskery old misanthrope and “a regular guy with a big-ass dick.”

A dark, intense drama led by two of Hollywood's most acclaimed actors, helmed by an arthouse fave director, "True Detective" is one of our most anticipated projects for 2014 no matter what size of screen it's being shown on. And in the cold grip of winter, there might be no better place than your couch to tune in to what promises to be a pretty charged piece of entertainment.
