tag trailer

The internet was in an uproar when Jeremy Renner was nowhere to be seen in the latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer. And I, along with the the 12 other Hawkeye fans, were not assuaged by the Russo brothers’ promises that Renner would play an “important part” in the Marvel film.

But no matter. Because we have another movie coming out that’s all about Renner. And judging by the Tag trailer, he has more screen time in this than he ever received in any of the Marvel movies.

Where’s Hawkeye?

It’s the resounding question that Avengers: Infinity War fans are asking as the new trailer and poster for the Marvel Studios film takes the internet by storm. Why is Hawkeye — a founding member of the Avengers and a fellow fugitive on the run with Captain America and Black Widow — nowhere to be seen?

Maybe he’s busy playing house with his wife, played by Linda Cardellini, and their kids. Maybe Jeremy Renner decided to rejoin the Mission: Impossible franchise after all (hah, nope). Maybe something dire happened to him. There’s a reasonable explanation for everything, and Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have one for Hawkeye. Don’t worry, Infinity War has in something in store for our favorite bow-slinging Avenger.

New Blu-ray Releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

It’s time for another round-up of physical media. Are you like me – living in the past and unable to give up material possessions? If so, you prefer good old fashioned physical media like Blu-rays to just going digital. There’s something more special (at least in my broken brain) about displaying your Blu-ray collection on a shelf than just purchasing something digitally and then forgetting all about it. With the actual physical disc, it’s always there, in front of you. Or maybe I’m crazy!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features one of the coolest action movies of the year, a somber, snowy drama, a five-film box set, and a documentary about cats. What more do you need, folks? Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

wind river trailer

Wind River is a brutal and somber neo-Western punctured with sudden bursts of violence, similar to director and screenwriter Talor Sheridan‘s previous films that he penned, Hell or High Water and Sicario. A high-speed action movie it is not, yet that is what the final trailer for Wind River makes it out to be.

The final trailer for Wind River hit the internet a day before the film goes into wide release after premiering at select theaters across the country. The movie, while great, is admittedly hard to market to a summer audience — hence the trailer making it look like a spiritual sequel to Renner’s own Bourne Legacy.

Taylor Sheridan knows how to write a taut thriller. The screenwriter behind Hell or High Water and Sicario tells stories that are heavy on mood and character. His plots are remarkably simple, with his characters carrying most of the weight. His first two produced scripts showed an exceptionally strong grasp of character and tension, so of course, we’re excited to see what he can accomplish behind the camera with his directorial debut, Wind River.

Below, watch the new Wind River trailer.

jeremy renner fractured arms

Hawkeye may or may not be sidelined (again) in Avengers: Infinity War, but it won’t be because Jeremy Renner injured himself during a stunt for the Marvel superhero film.

Renner said Friday that he “broke his arms” on the set of the New Line comedy film Tag, which, like Infinity War, is currently filming in Atlanta. Renner fractured his right elbow and his left wrist during the unspecified stunt, but promised that it won’t affect his job.

Wind River Trailer

After writing the acclaimed films Sicario and Hell or High Water, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan has tried his hand at directing a suspenseful thriller of his own.

Wind River follows Jeremy Renner as US Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert working on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. When he finds the body of a young woman in the mountains, an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) is brought in to help solve what looks like a homicide. She’s a rookie and this her first big case, which means she’s unprepared to deal with the harsh environment of Wind River in the winter, both literally and figuratively. The two must work together if they’re going to figure out who committed this crime.

Jeremy Renner Not In Mission Impossible 6

UPDATE: Though Marvel commitments are indeed keeping Jeremy Renner out of Mission: Impossible 6, director Peyton Reed has indicated on Twitter that Ant-Man and The Wasp will not be one of his obligations. Our original story from March 30 follows below.

Even though Mission: Impossible 6 will feature Tom Cruise tackling a stunt that tops anything else he’s done in the franchise before, he’ll have to pull it off without one of this newer teammates helping him out.

Jeremy Renner has co-starred in both Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation as a member of Ethan Hunt’s Impossible Mission Force. However, word on the street is that Jeremy Renner will not return for Mission: Impossible 6 due to his commitments at Marvel Studios, which may include more than just Avengers: Infinity War.
