Feast Your Eyes On These Gloriously Dark 'True Detective' GIF Posters


The geniuses over at HBO have just released the latest teasers for True Detective season 2, and they've gone straight for our weak spot: GIFS. These moving posters may not give too much away in terms of story, but they do capture the dark, claustrophobic feel of the show perfectly. Featuring vaguely menacing imagery like a lone crow, a gloomy underpass and labyrinthine highways, these GIF posters have got us feeling very excited about getting back into the True Detective world. 

ICYMI, here's what we know about the show so far: it's set in California, where a twisted murder sets three law-enforcement officers (Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch) on the trail of a career criminal, played by Vince Vaughn.

It also involves a conspiracy involving L.A.'s transportation system, hence all the highways and cars in the poster. And the tag-line? We get the world we deserve. Ominous. 


Now that you're all excited, re-watch the season 2 teaser trailer below. 

True Detective premieres in Australia on June 22 on Showcase
