Baby Driver Reviews

Last night, attendees of South by Southwest were lucky enough to see the world premiere of Baby Driver, the latest film from Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs the World director Edgar Wright. The first trailer debuted just before the screening was over (watch it along with a much different international trailer over here), and if you’re somehow not convinced to see the movie, maybe the early buzz from the first reactions to the movie will help.

We have a round-up of some brief reactions to Baby Driver after the jump. Read More »

Rough Night Trailer

It’s not often that a group of ladies get to have a raucous, irresponsible adventure in the vein of The Hangover, but with the success of movies like Bad Moms, women have been really cutting loose on the big screen. Rough Night is the next step in evening out the playing field of R-rated comedy.

Rough Night (formerly titled Rock That Body) follows Scarlett Johansson as the bride-to-be who is heading down to Miami to cut loose with her old college girlfriends (Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoe Kravitz and Kate McKinnon) for a big bachelorette party. It’s exactly the kind of ladies night shenanigans you’d expect with dick-shaped things and some cocaine usage, but things take a dark turn when something goes wrong with the male stripper the women ordered.

Watch the red band Rough Night trailer below to see how that turns out, but beware of NSFW language. Read More »

bad boys 3 director

We should have known something was up when director Joe Carnahan announced that he was working on an American remake of the Indonesian action classic The Raid. Wasn’t he supposed to be directing the third Bad Boys movie, otherwise known as Bad Boys For Life? Was he going to make them back-to-back? Well, now we know: Carnahan has officially dropped out of Bad Boys For Life and the exact reasons aren’t exactly clear.

Jake GyllenhaalRyan Reynolds, and Rebecca Ferguson discover the first proof of life on Mars. What could possibly go wrong? A whole lot based on the trailers for Daniel Espinosa‘s (Easy Money) space thriller, Life, which hopefully has more to offer than a blend of Alien and Gravity.

Below, watch an extended Life clip.

marian movie margot robbie

Maybe it’s because we’re living in an era where people all over the world feel disenfranchised and powerless in the face of ever-widening income gape, but there are a whole bunch of Robin Hood movies in development at the moment. Hollywood seems to be betting on people wanting to see stories about a charming rogue stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.

Now, Sony has lined up another Robin Hood movie with another high concept twist: what if Robin Hood died and Maid Marian secretly took his place? And what if Maid Marian was played by Margot Robbie?

bloodshot director

For a few years now, Valiant Comics has been circling Hollywood, looking for a way to bring its collection of characters to the big screen. Unlike Marvel and DC, their heroes and villains aren’t household names who are instantly recognizable to anyone with a pulse. They’re a trickier, tougher sell, coming from a universe that initially found its legs in the early ’90s and has won all kinds of critical acclaim since being relaunched in 2012.

Now, one of those characters has a new director. The Bloodshot movie is now in the hands of Dave Wilson and while you may not know that name, there’s a chance you know his work. And in a quietly canny move by Sony and Valiant, he comes from the same place as Deadpool director Tim Miller. Literally.

Smurfs: The Lost Village preview

The last two Surfs movies aren’t the most memorable kid films out there, but their success – they did great business overseas – proved there’s still plenty of love out there for these characters. The little blue humanoids are again starring in a movie, but this time, it’s a fully animated feature from director Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2), not another blend of live-action and animation. Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Gargamel (Rainn Wilson), and Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin) are back Smurfs: The Lost Village and a new promo has arrived to tease their return.

uncharted movie

UPDATED: It seems that Joe Carnahan consulted with Amy Hennig (the head writer and creative director on the first three Uncharted games who is no longer with Naughty Dog) and Nolan North (the actor who plays Nathan Drake in the games) on the screenplay. Take from that what you will.

The original article follows below.

After years of wandering through the deserts of development hell, it’s starting to look like Sony’s Uncharted movie may become a reality. Shawn Levy is planning to direct, and Joe Carnahan has finished the screenplay, which he says will be R-rated and full of big, crazy action. However, there’s one group apparently not involved in the film at all: developer Naughty Dog, who oversaw the creation of the entire Uncharted video game series, has no idea what’s going on with the movie.

Ghostbusters 1984 Deleted Scene

The original Ghostbusters from 1984 hit home video long before movies came with special features like behind the scenes featurettes and deleted scenes. But since the advent of Blu-ray and DVD discs that come chock full of bonus material, we’ve been able to see some of the deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut of Ghostbusters. However, there are a few that still haven’t seen the light of day, and we might finally be able to see footage from one scene in particular.

The official Ghostbusters production company Ghost Corps. posted a photo yesterday revealing that they had found some previously unseen reels of footage from Ivan Reitman‘s own personal storage. One of the reels includes scenes for a sequence that was part of the original film but ended up getting cut for pacing reasons. Find out about this Ghostbusters 1984 deleted scene after the jump.

After seeing John Wick: Chapter 2 twice, I’ve settled on the opinion that director Chad Stahelski should be allowed to whatever hell we wants next (provided that he also find time for John Wick: Chapter 3, of course). Both John Wick movies are among the freshest, funniest, and most unique American action films to come around in quite sometime – I’m pretty much in awe of them. So when Stahelski talks about dreaming of making a James Bond movie, I find myself snapping to attention and asking which mountain I can help move to make that happen.
