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 »
The early buzz is strong for Star Trek Beyond. Oddly, the film may not screen in certain territories for critics, but considering the first wave of reviews are almost as positive as they were for J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 reboot, maybe that’ll change. Inheriting the director’s chair from Abrams is Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), and another trailer has been released for Lin’s sequel.
Below, watch the final Star Trek Beyond trailer.

UPDATE: Paramount has officially announced that a fourth Star Trek movie is in development and that yes, it will somehow find a way to bring Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk into the fold. Time travel has played a major role throughout Star Trek‘s 50-year history (heck, it played a major role in the mere existence of these newest movies), so this unlikely reunion is perfectly in line with what has come before. No director is attached yet, but J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are writing the screenplay. The entire cast is expected to return minus Chekhov, who will be retired from the Enterprise crew following the tragic death of Anton Yelchin. The original article follows below.
We’re still a few days from seeing Star Trek Beyond premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, followed by hitting theaters everywhere late next week (or a bit earlier if you head to the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres). While the early buzz is pretty stellar, most of us are still in the dark about what happens in the movie, but now we’re all on even footing when it comes to knowing something about Star Trek 4.
One thing we’ve seen in the trailers for Star Trek Beyond is a hint that Captain Kirk’s arc in the movie is about doing more than living up to the legacy of his heroic father George Kirk, played by Chris Hemsworth before he became Thor, who died in the opening of the 2009 reboot from J.J. Abrams just after Kirk was born. Therefore, it only makes sense that news of the return of Chris Hemsworth to the franchise comes from Abrams as well. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
Next week brings the annual madness of Comic-Con in San Diego, and with it comes a sneak peeks of what’s to come from our favorite TV shows and upcoming blockbusters. As usual, Warner Bros. Pictures has their own panel and they’re bringing plenty of good stuff with them for Suicide Squad, The LEGO Batman Movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Kong: Skull Island and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. But perhaps the most exciting tease we’ll get will be for Wonder Woman.
We’re expecting some brand new footage from Wonder Woman to be revealed in Hall H at Comic-Con, maybe even the first official trailer that everyone will get to see regardless of whether or not they’re at the convention. In the meantime, some new Wonder Woman photos have arrived online featuring Gal Gadot ready for battle. Plus, we get another glimpse at Chris Pine in the movie as well. Read More »
In under a couple weeks, the premiere of Star Trek Beyond will be happening at San Diego Comic-Con. We’ll be there at the convention, complete with a reaction to the latest sequel in the rebooted film franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic TV series, which will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary there as well.
Leading up to the release of the film in a couple weeks, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has surfaced with some new footage, including more shots of the Enterprise getting torn apart, and a nice little moment between our Kirk and Spock as well. Watch it below. Read More »
In J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek films, Bones (Karl Urban) mostly interacts with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine). Now and then he’ll have a tense or fun side conversation with Spock (Zachary Quinto), but in the upcoming sequel, Star Trek Beyond, the two clearly have more to do together — which is a good thing, since Quinto and Urban are consistently reliable comedic relief in these films.
The new Star Trek Beyond clip also features Uhura (Zoe Saldana). Her words with Spock may qualify as a spoiler, but if you’re not particularly spoiler sensitive, then check out the latest look at director Justin Lin‘s film.

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.

Last Summer, I visited the set of Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver, Canada. Find out what I learned on set, including how over 50 new alien species were created for this film in honor of Trek’s 50th anniversary, how director Justin Lin has put an end to JJ Abrams’ “camera hand jobs” (yes, you just read that right) and much much more.

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.
