Watch HBO’s Dazzling ‘True Detective’ Trailer

Back when HBO first announced True Detective, its new cop show starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, it seemed almost too good to be true: two of America’s best and twangiest movie actors in a serialized drama about cops tracking a serial killer. Yes, please. Now we have the first full trailer, which teases a series that will not only be beautifully acted (duh) but beautifully photographed as well. The director is Cary Fukunaga, who last made the highly stylized big-screen adaptation of Jane Eyre, so the crisp, Gothic look is no surprise. The clip doesn’t give away too much, but based on McConaughey’s shifting hair-length, the narrative will jump back and forth through time, as it tells the story of the detectives’ 17-year hunt to catch a killer. The show premiers in January.
