Back in March, Matthew McConaughey made it very clear that he would not be returning for another season of True Detective. He signed up for eight episodes, and that was it. Done. But now that he's had some time to think it over, the actor has come out to say that he'd actually be "open" to do more True Detective.

'Interstellar' Trailer: Christopher Nolan Goes a Little Spielberg-y

Published by

Whatever you might have expected from Christopher Nolan after The Dark Knight Rises, it probably wasn't what Interstellar looks like, at least in the latest trailer. Matthew McConaughey plays a father who comes across as downright Spielbergian, a character that would feel at home in a film like Close Encounters of the...

Christopher Nolan’s first post-Dark Knight trilogy film, Interstellar, is still several months out with a November release date.  However, modern movie marketing dictates that we already have 17 trailers, 30 character posters, and a myriad of YouTube-ready TV spots.  But this being a Christopher Nolan flick, all we have thus far is a very vague teaser trailer. ...

Sunday night’s season finale for the excellent HBO anthology series True Detective proved to be far more shocking than fans expected—as many were unable to watch the damn thing for hours, as the overwhelming amount of users logging onto HBO Go (the streaming service that allows customers to watch HBO content on their phones, computers, and other streaming devices) crashed its...

Last night ended the Oscar season in perhaps the best way possible. After months of hype, backlash, and then the modest waves of backlash to the backlash, the ceremonies concluded with mostly good choices, which is always (pleasantly) surprising.

There's no denying that HBO did it again, blowing us away with their fantastical storytelling and grade-A actors in one of their latest shows, True Detective. Fans have been wondering like crazy as to who will play the next two detectives on the second season. Could they be female?

Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese reunites with Leonardo DiCaprio for a tale of debauchery in The Wolf of Wall Street. Based on the true story of stockbroker Jordan Belfort, the film shines a light on '80s excess and '90s entitlement. DiCaprio gives a masterful performance that would make Gordon Gekko proud. The Wolf of Wall Street is a hilarious yet poignant look...

It's been a few years since we last saw Jared Leto in a film, only because he's been absorbed in his rock band 30 Seconds to Mars. When he took his indefinite hiatus away from cinema, a lot of people like myself believed that he would stick with music and that would be it. Thankfully we were wrong, as years later he appears in a crazy transformative role in the upcoming film Dallas...

The first trailer for Dallas Buyers Club has finally hit the web. This is the movie that gave us all those photos (last year) of a stick-thin Matthew McConaughey. The actor lost nearly 50 pounds to portray Ron Woodroof, a Texas man who was diagnosed with HIV in 1986, leading him to smuggle effective but illegal drugs from Mexico into the United States to help patients...

Matthew McConaughey has had something of a charmed time lately—the actor has evolved from playing the smirking lead in the kind of smarmy romantic comedies that are now populated by Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl to starring in such films as Magic Mike, Mud, Bernie, and Killer Joe.  It’s been a bizarre and abrupt transition, but one...

Director and screenwriter Jeff Nichols wowed us all in 2011 with Take Shelter and this year returns to Sundance Film Festival with Mud.
