Baby Driver Opening Chase

It’s no secret that the /Film crew loves Baby Driver. The musically charged action thriller from director Edgar Wright made it onto every single one of our staff’s list of the Top 10 Movies of 2017 So Far, and our own Jacob Hall gave it a glowing review after catching it way early at SXSW earlier this year. But more people need to see this damn movie.

Baby Driver is already a hit for Edgar Wright. After opening a couple days before the July 4th holiday weekend, the movie has already pulled in $76 million worldwide on a budget of $34 million, making it the director’s most successful film to date. But the movie has still yet to open in some international territories, including Sweden, Brazil, Germany, Japan, Italy, New Zealand and more. So international audiences are still getting a marketing push to convince audiences to pay for a ticket, and that includes Universal (who is distributing the film overseas) releasing the entire opening heist and chase from the movie, which you can watch below.

War for the Planet of the Apes Clip

This week brings War for the Planet of the Apes to theaters, the third installment of the prequel trilogy that sets the stage for the 1968 classic starring Charlton Heston. The praise for this film has been off the charts, including my own review, where I called the film astounding and easily “one of the most significant blockbusters of the decade.”

For those who just can’t wait another day before the nationwide sneak preview screenings of War for the Planet of the Apes begin tomorrow evening, 20th Century Fox has a released a new clip from the movie. There’s a new character named Bad Ape in the movie (played perfectly by Steve Zahn), and in this clip, we see that he’s not exactly a fan of putting himself in harm’s way during a key moment in the film with Caesar’s ape ally Maurice (Karin Konoval).

Dunkirk IMAX Featurette - Christopher Nolan

Next week brings Christopher Nolan‘s latest film to theaters in the form of Dunkirk, and you have a wide variety of formats in which you’ll be able to see it. But easily the best way to see the movie will be on the largest IMAX screen possible, because the director shot the film with IMAX large format film cameras, creating a massive, rich image that Nolan describes as something akin to virtual reality without the goggles. If that’s not enough to sell you on the movie, watch the Dunkirk IMAX featurette below for more convincing. Read More »

Atomic Blonde Featurette

There was a time when saying that someone “fights like a girl” was considered an insult. Thankfully, that’s become something that doesn’t really sound all that lame anymore, especially when you have a superhero like Wonder Woman cleaning up at the box office. Adding to the power behind female punches will be a new action flick starring Mad Max: Fury Road‘s badass Charlize Theron.

Atomic Blonde stars Charlize Theron as an assassin working for MI6 who is stuck dealing with a city of traitors and killers trying to bump her off at every turn. She’s being hailed as the female 007, and if the trailers are any indicator, this movie will be even more kick-ass than the last mission James Bond went on in Spectre. Now, a new featurette takes a closer look at the action in the flick, showing us just how much of the fighting Charlize Theron is doing herself. Read More »

Logan Lucky Clip - Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig is best known for tracking down international threats as the secret agent James Bond, but late this summer, he’s going to break that image by playing a bleach blonde criminal with a Southern-accent in Steven Soderbergh‘s newest film.

Logan Lucky finds Daniel Craig behind bars as Joe Bang, an expert thief (though I guess he can’t be all that great if he got caught) who the Logan brothers (Channing Tatum and Adam Driver) are keen on recruiting to help them with robbing the Charlotte Motor Speedway during one of the biggest NASCAR races of the season. However, in a new Logan Lucky clip, Craig has to weigh the pros and cons of the heist to make sure it’s worth pulling off first. Read More »

Dunkirk Trailer

With all the chatter about summer blockbusters this year, it seems like everyone needs a reminder that Christopher Nolan has a new movie coming out this summer. It’s not a comic book sequel or even a heady sci-fi flick, but rather a World War II drama with an impressive ensemble cast.

Dunkirk is based on the true story of a rescue operation where thousands of British and Allied troops found themselves trapped on a beach, pushed into a corner by the enemy, leaving citizens to help them survive and escape. A new trailer has just arrived, pushing the intensity of the war, as well as the special 70mm engagements that viewers will be able to catch when the film hits theaters later this month. Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Opening Scene

This week brings Spider-Man: Homecoming to theaters, giving the new iteration of the Peter Parker (Tom Holland) his first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s not entirely alone though, since Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is serving as his mentor, by way of having his former bodyguard and head of security Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) keep tabs on the teenage superhero.

Tony Stark recruited Peter Parker to help in his fight against Captain America as The Avengers found themselves on two different sides of a massive disagreement regarding their place in the world. Now we get to see what happened in between Tony Stark’s visit to Queens in New York and the big airport brawl in Berlin, Germany, as well as a couple moments during and after the fight, thanks to Peter Parker’s secret, personal video blogs that help open up Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spider-Man Homecoming Featurette

We’re less than a week out from seeing Spider-Man return to theaters in a big way for his first solo outing since being brought back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. The good news is that Spider-Man: Homecoming is an exciting revival of the webslinger’s franchise that takes full advantage of his new place in a larger world. The even better news is that it brings a villain to the table that is easily one of Marvel’s best yet.

Michael Keaton plays Adrian Toomes, aka The Vulture. Screwed out of a contracting deal by Tony Stark, Toomes turns to a life of crime, selling weaponized Chitauri technology to small-time criminals in order to effectively provide for his family. Of course, Spider-Man can’t stand for this, but not even the webslinger’s do-good principles will keep a man from keeping his family afloat.

Glow Featurette

Netflix is bordering on belligerent with the amount of content the streaming service has been offering to its subscribers lately, and if you’re looking to stay on top of it all, you should wipe your weekend plans because today marks the release of yet another full season of television. The 1980s-set series GLOW, which is loosely based on the real-life low-budget wrestling show “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” hit the streaming service earlier today and has earned some great reviews thus far.

But before you binge the whole first season, take a look at a new GLOW featurette that showcases the stars doing their own stunts in the ring.

T2 Trainspotting Featurette

Earlier this year, Danny Boyle brought back the drug-addled characters of his cult favorite Trainspotting for a sequel that took 20 years to get off the ground. T2 Trainspotting caught up with Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle as Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie at a drastically different time in their lives.

T2 Trainspotting is coming to Blu-ray and DVD next week, and in honor of the film’s home video release by Sony Pictures, we have an exclusive clip from one of the special features with director Danny Boyle sitting with his cast to talk about returning to these characters two decades later. It looks like a fascinating, casual chat.
