(Video) New "True Detective: Season 3" Drops and it’s Awesome

A new trailer has been released for Season 3 of “True Detective.”

If you’re anything like me, you cannot wait for the new season of True Detective to finally hit HBO. Luckily, we’re only a few months away from the January 13th release date. The new eight-part season, which just dropped an official two-minute trailer today, will be directed by Jeremy Saulnier and star Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff.

According to IMDb, True Detective Season 3 “tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.”

Like the first two seasons, the third season is written by Nic Pizzolatto. If you’re a fan of Pizzolatto, he just had one of his stories hit the big screen — Galveston — which is getting solid reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

Uma Thurman Drops More Hints About Impending Harvey Weinstein Harassment Statement

Earlier this month, Uma Thurman was asked about her thoughts on the growing #MeToo movement. Thurman’s response, in which her barely-contained fury was apparent, went viral accross social media.

“I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others,” wrote the beloved actress in her Thanksgiving post on Instagram, paired with a screenshot from the film Kill Bill, about a female assassin looking for revenge. “I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned.”

Now, Thurman is making ominous comments on Instagram, referring quite

November 14, 1990: Simon & Schuster Drops ‘American Psycho’ From Its Publishing Roster

On November 14, 1990, esteemed publishing company Simon Schuster decided to drop the controversial and ultra-violent novel “American Psycho” from its pipeline. The book, about an impossibly vain serial killer, would eventually be published by Vintage Books and would go on to inspire the cult movie of the same name.

Simon Schuster cited “aesthetic differences” as the reason for dropping the bloody story from its roster, cancelling its production just a few months before the book was supposed to be sold in stores.

“I just decided it was an error in judgment to put our name on a book of such questionable taste, and that’s when I decided we wouldn’t publish it,” Richard E. Snyder, the company chairman, said at the time.

Snyder’s decision caused outrage within the literary community: “When a corporate executive like Richard Snyder or Martin Davis can censor an author based on their tastes or

L’Oréal Drops 1st Transgender Model Days After Hiring Her Over FB Post Arguing ‘All White People Are Racist’

Beauty company L’Oréal Paris hired trans model Munroe Bergdorf to appear in its YoursTruly True Match ad campaign—only to drop her a few days later after Daily Mail published a story about a post of hers on Facebook that criticized the “racial violence of… ALL white people.”

The post, which has since been deleted, reportedly said:

“Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of color… Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggression to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this shit. Come see me when you realise that racism isn’t learned, it’s inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege. Once white people begin to
