Whatever else HBO’s “True Detective” ends up being, it will likely be one of the most moodily atmospheric series of 2014.
That has been the takeaway from previous looks at the show, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as a pair of Louisiana detectives. The newest teaser adds to the slow-burn feel of the show — heck, the clip is even titled “Slow Boil.” It also gives a clearer hint at how the show will be structured: Harrelson’s and McConaughey’s characters work a brutal case in 1995 and revisit it in the present, when neither man is nearly the same as he was then.
“True Detective” premieres Jan. 12 on HBO. What do you think of the new trailer?
