We've greatly missed our favorite Canadian, Rachel McAdams,
so this teaser for True Detective season 2
seems especially promising. There's been a lot of speculation about the plot for this new season, and although this teaser doesn't give us much to go on, it's got
plenty of atmosphere. Which is to say, there are plenty of close-up shots of
Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn looking intense as hell, along with Taylor Kitsch getting into a fight and having a lot of feelings, along with some bonus
McAdams-as-a-cop action. There's also a shot of the excellent English actress Kelly
Reilly (Calvary, Black Box) as Vaughn's wife.
HBO's super creepy drama got a lot of well-deserved flack
for focusing more on naked, dead female bodies than live female characters,
although Michelle Monaghan was great. However, having McAdams as a lead could be
a game-changer for this season, despite reports of not just any old orgy scene
but "a deliriously vast, Eyes Wide Shut-caliber orgy sequence involving dozens of naked bodies." The
report noted that Farrell and McAdams are present for the scene, but it's not
clear if they're just like, "Oops, sorry! Wrong door!" or what.
If you're into possible spoilers, Satanic sex cults, and a
whole lot of speculation, here are some rumors about the plot.
Until then, we'll be in our bunker studying maps of
California and looking forward to seeing McAdams on our screens once again on June 21.
