The Batman Will Be a ‘Noir-Driven’ Detective Movie

Filmmaker Matt Reeves dropped some juicy morsels about his next project, Warner Bros.’ next solo Batman movie, while promoting his new release, War for the Planet of the Apes.

In a chat with New Trailer Buzz (via Batman-News), Reeves explained that he was as much of a fan of the DC superhero as a child as he was of the Planet of the Apes film series. Reeves also drew comparisons between the Dark Knight and the protagonist of the new Apes trilogy, Caesar.

“I see a parallel, emotionally, between Caesar and Batman in that they’re both characters who are tortured and trying to sort of grapple within themselves to find a way to do the right thing in a very imperfect, and to some degree corrupt, world,” said Reeves. “And so it’s really that emotionality that I’m interested in.”

‘True Detective’ Season 3 Has A Pulse, Might Be In The Works At HBO

Don’t put dirt on the grave of “True Detective” just yet, because the critically acclaimed and deeply inconsistent crime anthology series might have a little life left in it. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, “True Detective” Season 3 is currently in development. No official announcement has been made by HBO regarding the series’ revival.  

Creator Nic Pizzolatto has reportedly written at least two of the opening episodes, but this time around, he won’t be shouldering the burden of the delicately layered storytelling alone. “Deadwood” mastermind David Milch is also reportedly on board to help steer the ship in a new direction. Details, however, seem scarce at this time, as EW reports that the extent of the collaboration is in its “early days.”

The last we heard, “True Detective” was on an indefinite hiatus, with HBO programming chief Casey Bloys revealing that the series is “not dead but there’s no take on a third season yet.”

After a celebrated Emmy-nominated first season starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the series slumped harder than most sophomore slumps in recent memory with an underwhelming second season that wasted the talents of Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell. 

However, McConaughey has repeatedly expressed interest in returning to the series, sharing his fondness for his character Russ Rustin “Rust” Cohle in an interview last year. 

“I miss Rust Cohle, man … I was a happy man when we made that for six months, because I was on my own island,” he said. “I miss watching him on Sunday nights. I miss watching ‘True Detective’ on Sunday nights.”

On a beach somewhere, McConaughey gently places his bongos down and checks his phone only to find hundreds of missed calls from HBO. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to HBO and will update this post accordingly.

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Tracy Morgan, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Moore, Padma Lakshmi and a whole host of other stars are teaming up for Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU. Donate now and join us at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, March 31, on Facebook Live. #standforrights2017

The Travel Detective


Renowned travel authority and NBC Today show travel editor Peter Greenberg shares his insider secrets. Americans now travel more than ever before. Yet as our traveling has increased, the service we receive from airlines, hotels, and other agencies has deteriorated dramatically. Industry surveys reveal what you already feel: growing dissatisfaction among travelers of every age, income, and education level. We’ve been abused by the travel experience. Peter Greenberg is here to help. The Travel Detective tells you the things most travel agents can’t – or sometimes just won’t – tell you. In his characteristic friendly and conversational tone, Greenberg tells how to find the secret walk-up fares that can save air travelers hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on last minutes flights; which coach seats on which planes are better than first class; the secret rule to know to avoid being bumped from a flight, which cruise ship brochures lie; which credit card companies are fastest – and slowest – to come to your aid in a foreign land, or worse, in the U.S,; which hotels have the best – and the worst – fire and crime safety records, and how you can protect yourself; how to negotiate the best hotel room deal; which hotels have the worst water pressure in their showers (and better yet, how you can get great water pressure, even at those hotels); and much, much more. Accessible and entertaining, The Travel Detective gives you the information and tools you need to make every trip an affordable pleasure. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Loves and Tribulations of Detective Stephen Carlton

The Loves and Tribulations of Detective Stephen Carlton


An excerpt:”Hi, I’m Mary White.”Carlton tilted his head toward her.”I’m with that tour group there,” she pointed to the bus, “heading for Bogotá. I traveled with the nuns from the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Coromoto. We were on our way to San Cristóbal.” She stopped, seemingly expecting some attention. When this wasn’t forthcoming, she continued, “The bus broke down three hours ago. There is no sign that we might leave soon. The driver walked back to El Llano, the main highway, to seek help.” She paus-ed. “I heard you say you’re going across the border. I wonder if…” She stopped and then, “Would you take a passenger? I’d pay, of course.”Mary moved her luggage very close to the aircraft and waited-her long hair and her blue skirt tugged by the breeze. Underneath her silky blouse she was wearing a necklace with a pendant in the shape of a large cross.”I don’t give lifts,” Carlton answered dryly. He turned his back.”That’s too bad. I wouldn’t be any trouble. Three hundred dollars cash.” Her tone was soft yet persuasive. Carlton didn’t reply. He moved toward the landing gear and checked the wiring. Mary followed him. “Five hundred. I could be of help.”Are you a mechanic?”No, I have nursing training-just in case.”I’m healthy, thank you.” Carlton skirted her to grab a wrench.”One thousand dollars. I’d do anything you ask.” Her voice was just a whisper. She was so close to him that her hair, lifted by the wind, grazed his face. Carlton bent to pull on a cord to test its connection. It was then that he saw Mary turning around and lifting her bags. “Wait!” he called. She instantly dropped her bags, made an about-face, and waited.”Anything I ask?” Carlton finally showed his face completely and looked her over. “Anything at all? That is a pretty strong statement.”Mary flickered her eyes between Carlton and the ground. It would be interesting to find out how far she was ready to go. “Aren’t you concerned about making such an offer? What would you do if I asked for something…” he s

Un-True Detective: HBO Noir Series Misses the Mark

2015-06-22-1435013439-2718764-Detective2.jpg

The Stars of True Detective Season Two: Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn

2015-06-22-1435013563-3037533-Detective1.jpg

Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in Season One of True Detective.

Although the second season of True Detective on HBO has a lot of the same names attached to it behind the camera, the new iteration of the title which just premiered bears scant resemblance to last year’s bravura bayou noir mini-series.

Season one was strikingly original — set in hazy, humid and swampy Louisiana — a venue unfamiliar to most Americans, it starred a Southern tag team so captivating that even if Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson had Confederate Stars and Bars license plates viewers still would have loved them. McConnaughey and Harrelson played incredibly intense, driven and seriously flawed police detectives and human beings. Awash in cheap bourbon, cheap women and even cheaper beer, their reprehensible self-destructive behavior was both pitiful and pitiable. And there is a difference between season one and season two. That McConaughey and Harrelson were on a crusade to find the creepy ritual killers of young girls made you root for them every step of the way. That you couldn’t see the plot twists coming made for riveting television. Season two has no such redemptive underpinnings.

In season two, the producers have also spared no expense to bring us a group of big Hollywood stars — probably too many and not the right ones. Where McConaughey and Harrelson were a believable couple, season two has four key characters seemingly only connected by the murder of someone we probably will never care about. In season one, rescuing virginal girls being flayed alive for a pseudo religion is something everyone can get behind. Punishing their captors and killers is something everyone can root for. In Season two we have a dead corrupt City Manager of a tiny industrial Southern California armpit. Why become emotionally invested in that?

Series Creator/Writer Nic Pizzolatto dishes out three troubled dissolute Southern California cops played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Thrown into the mix is a quasi-legal casino owner and would be shtarker (tough criminal mastermind) played by Vince Vaughn. On paper, this should be a winning quartet, but the instruments are out of tune and the metaphorical musical score, i.e., the plot and the script is never going to make the Billboard Top 10.

Farrell, who was brilliant in the 2008 film In Bruges as a damaged neophyte incompetent hitman, is plunged in True Detective into the depths of self-despair and self destruction after selling his soul to Vaughn. Wallowing in Johnny Walker Blue Label, there’s nothing about his character that is remotely redeeming or worth rooting for. Farrell’s American accent just isn’t as interesting as when he speaks like a Brit or an Irishman.

McAdams is also asked to wallow in a self-loathing so palpable that it’s just shocking. The producers took the glam Queen Bee from Mean Girls and butched her out to an almost unrecognizable degree — and also to a non-credible level. She’s hard to believe in the role and is stretched well beyond her many talents. She can’t pull off the Charlize Theron mud-and-blood slathered tough trash role.

Kitsch seems to have peaked dramatically as Tim Riggins in Friday Night Lights, nothing he’s done since evinces the same level of passion and pathos. His beefcake starring roles in John Carter (the Water World of its time) and Battleship in 2012 ran aground faster than a deep keeled yacht in three-foot waters. In True Detective he’s suffering (naturally) from the psychic after effects of military service and is also looking for ways to punish and even maybe even kill himself. Kitsch is so remote and introverted that even his steamy hot girlfriend can’t crack through, so why should the audience bother?

Finally, Vaughn, utterly likable and believable in such wonderful comedies as Wedding Crashers, Dodgeball and Old School, is as miscast in a “heavy” mob boss role as Tom Hanks would be if he were also asked to play a gangster. Vaughn is a terrific comedic actor because of his easy sardonic wit and everyman demeanor. Henry Fonda could convincingly play evil (and against type) in Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time In The West. Vaughn is no Henry Fonda, but then Fonda really couldn’t do comedy that well either and he didn’t try very often. In suppressing his natural likability, Vaughn becomes not just unlikable but also uninteresting.

Pizzolatto in situating season two in Southern California begs comparison with scads of other L.A.-based noir classics such as L.A. Confidential, Chinatown and Double Indemnity, to name but a few — and True Detective comes up short and wanting in comparison. Where season one nailed rural Louisiana, season two misses the mark in Southern California. Season two is the wrong story, with the wrong characters and the wrong actors playing against type unsuccessfully. Let’s hope that Pizzolatto wasn’t a one-hit wonder with season one.
