Call Me By Your Name Trailer

While plenty of our favorite films from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival have been hitting theaters over the summer, from the odd but charming Brigsby Bear to the breakout indie hit The Big Sick, there are still a few that have been held back from release. One of those movies is a wonderful coming-of-age romance set in Italy in 1983, and the first trailer has finally arrived.

Call Me By Your Name focuses on a 17-year old boy named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) spending the summer in his family’s villa, spending his time playing classical music, reading, swimming or flirting with his friend Marzia. But when a handsome, charming 24-year old American doctoral student named Oliver (Armie Hammer) moves into the house as an intern for Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg), his fascination with the twentysomething man leads him to a personal discovery that will change his life forever.

Cars 3

There are some people who seem to think it’s ridiculous to think about the universe of Pixar’s animated franchise Cars beyond its surface-level existence of a world where automobiles can talk just like animals have in countless Disney movies before. But there’s just something about the logistics of the Cars universe that raises a myriad of questions, and that can be frustrating, especially when Pixar goes out of their way to not answer them unless it’s important to the story or characters.

For anyone who thinks those asking the tough questions about the Cars universe are thinking way too hard about this concept, it must be pointed out that even the actors and actresses who lend their voices to the sentient vehicles in this weekend’s Cars 3 have their own questions about the world of Cars.

Cars 3 Clip

With the release of Cars 3 just a couple weeks away, Disney is ramping up the marketing for the Pixar Animation’s new sequel, which will focus on Lightning McQueen as we’ve never seen him before: old and outdated.

Cars 3 puts Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in a tough spot as he’s faced with the challenge of being beaten by a brand new advanced race car on the scene named Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer). When a wreck during his first race with the new champ leaves him broken, he has to figure out how to mount a comeback, but without trying to be just like the new cars.

A new Cars 3 clip has debuted giving us a more proper introduction to Jackson Storm and what makes him such an efficient, seemingly unbeatable racer. However, the mere existence of this character also raises even more complicated questions about how the world of Cars operates. Watch the Cars 3 clip below to find out more. Read More »

Cars 3

This summer brings the third installment of Pixar’s animated Cars franchise. Taking a cue from sports dramas that have come before it, Cars 3 focuses on Lightning McQueen as we’ve never seen him before: the underdog. The red racer voiced by Owen Wilson simply isn’t the hot shot that we’ve come to know, and he’s forced to confront the limitations that come with being the senior car on the track, as well as rediscovering his passion for racing. It just might make for the best Cars movie yet.

Brie Larson interview

There’s more than meets the eye with some of the characters in Free Fire. They can reveal shades of humanity you wouldn’t immediately expect at the start of Ben Wheatley‘s action-comedy. Some characters, on the other hand, like Vernon (Sharlto Copley), can be chalked up to “what you see is what you get.”

That’s not the case with Justine, played by Academy Award winner Brie Larson (Room), who is calmer than most during Wheatley’s 85-minute shootout. Justine tries to keep others from losing their heads as hers remains firmly planted on her shoulders.

Wheatley’s movie is contained and set mostly in one location, but it still leaves you with a sense of who the characters are outside of the abandoned warehouse. We recently sat down with Larson and discussed what sort of person Justine is outside of the film, what it’s like shooting in chronological order, and more. Spoilers for the film lie ahead.

Ben Wheatley interview

The distinction between heroes and villains isn’t as clear in Free Fire as most action movies. And it’s partly because co-writer/director Ben Wheatley and co-writer Amy Jump give all their characters lives outside of the shootout – lives you want to see them find a way to escape back to. Out of the ensemble, some eggs are more rotten than others, but for the most part, Free Fire is a movie in which we’re rooting the characters to find a solution, not kill each other.

Over the span of 85 minutes – a glorious runtime in this day and age – not one of the characters rings as false in Free Fire. Their pain feels real because they feel real. Jump and Wheatley rarely give these characters any breaks, either. The writers bring a heavy dose of physical comedy to the film to go along with some brutal carnage.

We recently sat down with Wheatley, the director behind Kill List and High-Rise, for a brief conversation about his new movie.

Free Fire Clip - Sharlto Copley

If you’re lucky, this weekend brings the action shoot’em up flick Free Fire to a theater near you. It’s the latest film from High Rise and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley. But don’t worry if you think the filmmaker’s work is a little too weird or twisted for your tastes, because this is easily his most accessible film yet.

Free Fire follows a black market arms deal gone wrong in 1970s Boston as an IRA buyer (Cillian Murphy) and a South African gun runner (Sharlto Copley) end up in a gun fight in the middle of an abandoned warehouse, with both their sides exchanging shots, trying to get the money and attempting to make it out alive. It’s relentlessly brutal, but it’s also extremely funny, as evidenced by a new clip from the movie that will probably make District 9 fans grin a bit.

Armie Hammer interview

If there’s one character who stays calm in most of Free Fire, it’s Ord. The American criminal is as well-composed as his swanky gray jacket and black turtleneck. Rarely is Ord the character shouting and screaming in director Ben Wheatley‘s (High-Rise) new, 85-minute-long shoot ’em up..

Wheatley and co-writer Amy Jump don’t waste a second of Free Fire‘s runtime, which couldn’t come at a more right time before some bloated action movies arrive this summer. The film is as lively as some of its characters, most of whom you’d like to see make it out of the warehouse. Especially Ord.

We recently discussed the role with actor Armie Hammer, who also told us a bit about the character’s backstory, working with Wheatley, and more.
