Baby Driver Stunt Driving

Nowadays it’s become easy for blockbusters to use visual effects to pull off insane stunts. It’s part of the reason some action movies have become surprisingly mundane. There’s just something that lacks excitement about a stunt you know wasn’t actually done by anything other than a computer. Even the Fast and Furious movies have taken to having more visual effects heavy action sequences when they used to rely on real stunt driving. But thankfully, this summer brings a cure for the common blockbuster.

Baby Driver is the latest film from writer/director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World), and a new featurette reveals that the action flick about a getaway driver trying to get away from his chosen profession is chock full of real stunt driving, with real cars, on real locations, with real people. For real.

Honey I Shrunk the Kids - Movies Leavng Netflix

Star Wars The Last Jedi Snoke Rumors

Last week brought plenty of new details about Star Wars: The Last Jedi thanks to Vanity Fair’s big cover story on the sci-fi sequel coming to theaters late this year. Not only did we get a glimpse at new characters, but we also learned some surprising details about the characters introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now even more information has come to the surface, thanks to leaked images of some merchandise that will be hitting shelves on September 1 this fall for the big Force Friday II event leading up to the release of The Last Jedi. However, if you want to go into The Last Jedi blindly, I wouldn’t read after the jump since the photos confirm some rumors that have been making the rounds online. We’ll discuss and speculate on what they’ll mean for the movie after the jump. You’ve been warned! Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we support some homicidal cats, stand aghast as we see what chaos Amber Tamblyn has wrought, see how well things are going in the middle east, get the skinny on Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine with a very fat documentary, catch a movie in reverse, give props to a trailer maker of the highest order and feel fuzzy that indie films still shine bright.

Pirates 5

It’s been six years since the last sequel in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise arrived, and it wasn’t exactly a shining example of an entertaining high seas adventure. In fact, I couldn’t even tell you what happened in that movie. That’s how memorable On Stranger Tides was when it arrived around this same time in 2011.

Now we have Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arriving in theaters this weekend. How did it turn out? Is it closer to capturing what made the first installment of the franchise so great, or does the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow fall in line with the lackluster sequels that followed? The /Film crew sounds off with their own thoughts below, and then you can let us know what you think in the comments. Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbea Dead Men Tell No Tales Credits Scene

The fifth entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise hits theaters this weekend, and while it doesn’t look to be quite as successful as the previous entries in the adventure film series, it will still easily take the weekend with as much as $80 million projected for the extended Memorial Day weekend debut.

There has been some chatter as to whether or not Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales would be the last movie in the franchise, bringing the series to an end. But in order to talk about the possible continuance of the franchise, we must venture into a sea of spoilers that includes talking about the Pirates 5 credits scene that appears at the end. So if you haven’t seen Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, don’t read after the jump. Read More »

‘The King of Kong’ Musical in the Works

the king of kong musical

We’re still waiting on New Line’s remake of The King of Kong: A Fistful of QuartersSeth Gordon‘s excellent 2007 doc about Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell competing over the world record for Donkey Kong. Gordon, who went on to direct Horrible Bosses and Baywatch, has been wanting to dramatize their rivalry in a feature film for years now – but that’ll have to wait until he’s done adapting the doc for the stage.

Below, learn more about the King of Kong musical.

top gun 2 val kilmer

Top Gun is coming back to theaters with a sequel, which means the return of Tom Cruise as Maverick, the (hopeful) return of latent homoeroticism, and maybe the return of Val Kilmer‘s Iceman. At least, Kilmer says he’s ready to reprise his role for Top Gun 2.

The sequel to 1986’s Top Gun was re-confirmed by Cruise earlier this week, and while a cast and director have not yet been announced, Cruise has said that he’ll begin filming “sometime next year.” So with details for Top Gun 2 in the dark, Kilmer took to social media to make his appeal for Iceman’s return to Cruise.
