Ben Foster and Chris Pine play incredibly convincing brothers in David Mackenzie‘s knockout drama, Hell or High Water, written by Sicario scribe Taylor Sheridan. Tanner (Foster) and Toby (Pine) have their differences, but they’re definitely from the same family. Their mutual trust, their shorthand, their inside jokes, and how they express themselves — they’re cut from the same cloth. The criminals are far from heroes, but their tight bond makes them surprisingly empathetic in Hell or High Water, which hits home video tomorrow. To celebrate the release, we’ve been premiering a clip from one of the film’s bonus features.
Below, watch a clip from a Hell or High Water featurette.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H. Thankfully for fans at home, every single piece of footage they showed at the convention ended up online, from the Justice League sizzle reel to The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. But honestly, the best thing to come out of the panel was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. You’ve probably watched it plenty of times by now, but we wanted to do a little breakdown of the footage we see in the tease for the first solo adventure of the DC Comics superhero.

It’s something of a ritual by now. The latest entry in a major franchise arrives, but the people behind the film aren’t talking about it. Instead, they’ve already moved on to the next movie, the hypothetical sequel that only exists in a few conversations and on a cocktail napkin or two. The intention is obvious enough: “Go see this one so we can make the next one!”
This currently applies to Star Trek Beyond, which has received overwhelmingly positive praise from critics (our own Ethan Anderton gave it high marks) but isn’t a surefire smash hit. It’s no wonder producer J.J. Abrams is already singing the praises of the recently announced Star Trek 4 – this is a game of confidence and of properly setting expectations and promising that if you go see this one, you’ll get more Chris Hemsworth in the follow-up.

After recycling a little too much of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the rebooted franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi series needed a new direction to bring some freshness back to the final frontier. Thankfully, with Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin has managed to craft a extremely entertaining journey back into space for the USS Enterprise. It’s a sequel that blends some of the signature style of the classic Star Trek series with the action sensibilities of a modern blockbuster.

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 »
