Baby Driver Trailer

Last month, Edgar Wright‘s latest film Baby Driver played SXSW and received plenty of rave reviews, including one from our own Jacob Hall. The critical acclaim and the buzz that followed was enough to convince TriStar Pictures to bump the film from its initial August release date all the way up to the end of June. They’ve got a lot of confidence in this one, and after seeing the first trailers, so do we.

Now another Baby Driver trailer has surfaced, this one set entirely to the Golden Earring tune “Radar Love,” which was featured in the theatrical international trailer that was released last month, but is used a little more effectively in this quick new trailer. Watch it below! Read More »

Mad Men Heinz Ad

Throughout Mad Men‘s seven tremendous years on AMC, Don Draper and his associates pitched more than a few bright ideas to potential clients. Some of them were quite good, including the campaign Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce pitched to the Heinz company. In the episode, season six’s “To Have and to Hold,” Don said three simple words: “Pass the Heinz.” Years after passing on the slogan, Heinz is officially using it.

Baby Driver Reviews

Last night, attendees of South by Southwest were lucky enough to see the world premiere of Baby Driver, the latest film from Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs the World director Edgar Wright. The first trailer debuted just before the screening was over (watch it along with a much different international trailer over here), and if you’re somehow not convinced to see the movie, maybe the early buzz from the first reactions to the movie will help.

We have a round-up of some brief reactions to Baby Driver after the jump. Read More »

Baby Driver Trailer

UPDATED: A much different international trailer for Baby Driver has been added. Our original post follows below.

This weekend brings the premiere of Baby Driver to the South by Southwest Film Festival. We’ll have a full review from our own Jacob Hall who is down in Austin, Texas for the film’s premiere (among other things), but until then, fans can satiate their appetite for a new film from the director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs the World with the trailer for this new film.

Baby Driver follows a young getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort) who is nearly mute and suffers from a condition that leaves a constant ringing n his ears, so he relies on his own personal soundtrack to drown out the noise so he can do what he does best. Edgar Wright promised a movie that was powered by music, and the first trailer certainly gives us that.

Baby Driver

What I find most intriguing about Baby Driver is that the barebones synopsis sounds like something we’ve seen a hundred times before: a talented getaway driver meets a girl, decides to leave his life of crime behind, and gets sucked into a job that puts everything on the line. The key difference is that this is the latest film from Edgar Wright, a filmmaker whose name alone was enough to get this movie in the number one spot on my most anticipated movies of 2017 list. Look, making Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World ensures that you get on top of a lot of lists.

So yeah, let’s check out three new photos from the film, which should help tide us over until a trailer arrives.

Baby Driver

It’s been over three years since we’ve gotten a new movie from Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright, and that’s a shame. But thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer since he has a new action thriller come to theaters late in the summer of 2017.

Baby Driver follows a young getaway driver who is nearly mute and suffers from a condition that leaves a constant ringing n his ears, so he relies on his own personal soundtrack to drown out the noise so he can do what he does best. The first Baby Driver photos have emerged showing Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) in the lead role, preparing for a music-fueled drive, as well as the supporting cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm and Elsa Gonzalez.

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Standing before me in black tactical gear, hair combed back but just a bit unruly, Jon Hamm looks exactly like Sterling Archer. He’s not wearing a tactleneck, but aside from that detail the illusion is perfect. As seemingly everyone did, I watched Hamm on Mad Men for years, so the timbre of his voice and his patterns of speech are intimately familiar. But in this getup I expect — I want — him to sound like Archer.

Jon Hamm knows this. He’s voiced a character on the show, after all. And would you be shy if knew you were the living incarnation of TV’s greatest/most irritating spy? Probably not. “Lanaaaaaaa!” he bellows before anyone can ask him to do so.

We’re outside the Atlanta set of Keeping Up With the Joneses, a 20th Century Fox movie in which Hamm plays half of a super-spy couple living undercover in the suburbs. His character Tim Jones is partnered with Natalie Jones, played by Gal Gadot, in life and work. We see the glamorous, ultra-capable pair through the eyes of a much more mundane couple, who are more than slightly agog as the spies-in-disguise set up stakes in their quiet, tree-lined neighborhood.  Read More »

Keeping Up With the Joneses trailer

Between the Fast and Furious movies and her ongoing role as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ DC universe, Gal Gadot has plenty of action-hero cred. What she hasn’t really had a chance to do is show off her comedy chops. But that changes now, thanks to director Greg Mottola (of Superbad and Paul).

Gadot and Jon Hamm star as the Joneses, a glamorous, sophisticated, picture-perfect couple who move into a perfectly ordinary suburb. They dazzle their new neighbors, especially Jeff (Zach Galifianakis) and Karen (Isla Fisher). What Jeff and Karen don’t realize right away is that the Joneses are spies.

Archer

The characters of Archer have only changed so much over the years. If they ever truly evolved as people, after all, they’d no longer be the unrepentant assholes we’ve come to love. But the show itself has morphed a couple of times, first into a crime show in season 5 and then into a P.I. series in season 7. Might Archer make an even bigger leap someday? Like into the world of live-action films, perhaps?

Executive producer Matt Thompson isn’t ruling out a possible Archer movie, revealing that he and series creator Adam Reed “have definitely talked about it.” And while they’ve yet to make up their mind about whether this (purely theoretical, at this point) movie would be animated or live-action, they know exactly who they’d want playing Sterling Archer if they go the latter route: Mad Men star Jon HammRead More »

Good news: Edgar Wright has begun filming his newest picture, Baby Driver. Shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, began this week, and Wright is already sharing behind-the-scenes pics from his rock-and-roll car chase film. There aren’t any shots of the excellent cast, but posting a few shots from the set isn’t a bad way to celebrate the start of principal photography. Check out Wright’s photos below. Read More »
