True Detective Season 2 Motion Posters: The World We Deserve
Following the first trailer released earlier this month, HBO has debuted two motion posters for True Detective Season 2. While there isn't a ton of "motion," the first poster shows an overhead shot featuring one of California's complicated highway systems, while the second shows a flickering sunset, just underneath one of these overpasses. Both posters come with the tagline "We get the world we deserve," which doesn't exactly shed too much light on this season's story, but it may make more sense as we get closer to the highly-anticipated June 21 premiere.
This new season of True Detective centers on a bizarre murder that brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life's work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own.
Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff's detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars. The supporting cast is rounded out by James Frain, Michael Irby, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin, C.S. Lee and Rick Springfield. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto wrote True Detective Season 2 in its entirety, with Justin Lin directing the first two episodes. Take a look at these unique motion posters below, and stay tuned for more as we inch closer and closer to the June 21 premiere.
