Chris Pine and Ben Foster kicked off the year with The Finest Hours, a tale of heroism and survival at sea. Now they’ve reunited for Hell or High Water, which seems like it could have been an alternate title for The Finest Hours but actually has nothing to do with water at all. Instead, the crime drama directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up, Perfect Sense) centers on two brothers in West Texas who rob a string of banks to keep their family farm from going under.
Before long, their spree catches the attention of the authorities, represented here by two Texas Rangers played by Jeff Bridges and Gil Birmingham. Hell or High Water got some very good reviews at Cannes earlier this year and is now on its way to U.S. theaters. Check out the latest Hell or High Water trailer after the jump. Read More »

Plenty of banks have been robbed in the Western genre, but there aren’t many contemporary thrillers that use the premise nowadays. The last captivating modern Western that centered on a robbery was probably Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, and even then it was only a small part of a larger character story. But Hell or High Water has Chris Pine and Ben Foster stopping at nothing to get what they think is rightfully owed to them by the banks. However, Jeff Bridges isn’t letting them get away with it.

Based on Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, the multiplayer role-playing game, Warcraft represents a chance to turn the tide for video game adaptations. A lot is riding on the film–this is far from a cheap video game movie–but will audiences unfamiliar with Blizzard’s property flock to director Duncan Jones‘ (Moon) fantasy film? We’ll soon find out. So far, Warcraft isn’t faring well with critics, but it’s not without its supporters.
Below, check out the Warcraft early buzz.

Lately, we’ve seen some trailers that begin with advertisements for the trailer. I don’t understand this trend, but it seems to keep happening. Hell or High Water is the latest trailer to begin with an ad, including shots we see later on in the footage. Why you’d have to sell a trailer to someone who’s already decided to watch it is beyond me, but enough about that. Let’s instead focus on Hell or High Water, the upcoming film from Starred Up and Perfect Sense director David Mackenzie. Mackenzie’s thriller stars Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, and more.

The more we see from Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft, the more compelling it looks. While fans of the video game were divided over the first trailer, which featured unfinished VFX, the last extended TV spot presented a more tactile glimpse at the world Jones and all involved have crafted. The orc, in that TV spot, was completely convincing, and so was the environment it was fighting in.

This summer, Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures are taking a big risk by bringing the video game Warcraft to the big screen. While the property on which the film is based is one of the most popular video games ever, the trailer has already shown that this is some deep fantasy material, complete with different races of orcs, some powerful wizard magic, and much more.
Now a new Warcraft trailer has arrived from the international side of the film’s marketing where the title of the movie is Warcraft: The Beginning. The visual effects seem to be a little more polished for anyone who was concerned that the movie would look more like a video game cinematic. See for yourself after the jump. Read More »

A few weeks ago it was announced The Program will premiere on DirecTV this month. The Lance Armstrong biopic was shot almost two and a half years ago, but The Program has taken its time getting to the big screen, for unknown reasons. The former potential awards contender is directed by Stephen Frears (High Fidelity) and, in the starring role as the disgraced cyclist, is Ben Foster.

The Program began principal photography almost two and a half years ago, and that’s when we get our first look at actor Ben Foster in the role of Lance Armstrong. It’s an impressive transformation, but one we haven’t gotten to see on the big screen yet. After opening overseas and playing at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Stephen Frears‘ drama will premiere on DirecTV this month.

Next week brings the release of Disney’s high seas rescue drama The Finest Hours, and the film is getting a release in IMAX 3D for the most immersive experience possible. The only way it could be more immersive is if the people working at the theater kept dumping buckets of water on you. That way you can be just as wet as Chris Pine and Casey Affleck will be in this movie about what is being called the most daring Coast Guard rescue mission ever. If you need anymore convincing to see the movie, check out a four-minute IMAX trailer for the movie after the jump. Read More »
