True Detective: New Trailers & Posters - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, December 9, 2013

Bar none, the most anticipated new television series of 2014 for us here at The Daily Zombies is HBO's True Detective. We take a look at the anthology series with these truly awesome promotional materials one month ahead of the debut of the eight part series. 

Are we truly living at the
"Golden Age" of television as suggested by numerous critics and historians of television? We might never live long enough to ascertain that but we here at The Daily Zombies does subscribe to this theory despite the end of great television series the likes of Breaking Bad and Dexter. After all, HBO's True Detective is coming to town.

While we have seen our fair share of grim-&-gritty crime series focusing on serial killers in recent years, True Detective, an anthology series with the first eight episodes season premiering in January next year is still our most anticipated new television series. Directed by Cary Fukunaga and created by Nic Pizzolatto, the show featured Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as two detectives whose inevitably find their lives entwined in a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana with investigations and trials of a bizarre murder from 1995 to 2013 when the case reopened. 

In our First Look at the show, we have witnessed some instantly arresting drama and an undoubtably dark and foreboding visions from the first trailer. As we await the airing of the show in a month's time, HBO has been firing on all cylinder on the marketing end with numerous clips released. Here's looking at some of the very best ones.

First up, the "Slow Boil" trailer.

The second trailer that is every bit as good.

The clips introducing the characters.

More ominous teaser trailers that worked perfectly fine in conveying the dark ambience of the series.

Here are five simple yet absolutely unnerving teaser clips for the series.

The equally well-made posters that conveyed the dark atmosphere of the series.

We have seen this official image earlier on but this is the hi-res version from the official source.

Here’s the official synopsis for the series:

In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.

Written and created by Nic Pizzolatto (‘The Killing’) and directed by Cary Fukunaga (‘Sin Nombre,’ ‘Jane Eyre’), ‘True Detective’ stars Woody Harrelson as Martin Hart and Matthew McConaughey as Rust Cohle. The series also stars Michelle Monaghan (‘Mission: Impossible III’) as Maggie, Hart’s wife; Kevin Dunn (‘Veep’) as Major Quesada, the supervising officer in 1995; and Tory Kittles (‘Sons of Anarchy’) and Michael Potts (‘The Wire’) as Dets. Papania and Gilbough, the investigators now probing Hart and Cohle for answers.

True Detective is slated to air on HBO on 12th January 2013.
