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.

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 »
Before director David O. Russell made his major comeback, he was at one point attached to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Eventually the Joy director left the project, along with many others, as the film was stuck in development hell. It’s taken years to get this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s novel made, but it’s finally reaching the big screen next month.
After the jump, watch some Pride and Prejudice and Zombies clips.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is such a preposterous concept that it’s hard to believe it was published as a novel before it became a feature film. But here we are: a movie adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s parody is on the way and a new trailer has arrived to once again prove its existence. You just know that this whole endeavor has Jane Austen rolling over in her grave, which, considering the subject matter, is probably appropriate.
Watch the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer after the jump.

War and Peace is a real doorstop of a book — around 1,400 pages, give or take a hundred pages depending on the publisher and edition. So if you’ve always meant to read it but haven’t gotten around to it quite yet, you may be interested to know that you’ll have the chance to get through the story in a mere six hours this fall.
The Weinstein Company and BBC America have teamed for a miniseries adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy classic, starring Lily James, Paul Dano, and James Norton. Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent, Rebecca Front, Aneurin Barnard, Tuppence Middleton, and Stephen Rea also make appearances. Watch the War and Peace miniseries trailer after the jump. Read More »

There have been many attempts to modernize Jane Austen over the years, perhaps the most successful of which is Amy Heckerling’s Clueless. But Pride and Prejudice and Zombies takes a different approach. Instead of moving the action to the present day, it just unleashes an ever-trendy horde of zombies into Regency-era England.
Lily James and Sam Riley play Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, whose familiar struggles with romance and social class are further complicated by the presence of the “sorry stricken.” Bella Heathcote plays Jane, Douglas Booth is Bingley, and Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Suki Waterhouse, Lena Headey, and Charles Dance round out the cast. Watch the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer after the jump.

Jane Austen adaptations and zombie actioners are a pretty common sight at the box office. A Jane Austen adaptation that’s also a zombie actioner, though? Now that’s not something you see every day. Directed by Burr Steers and based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is exactly what it sounds like — Austen’s classic of love and social status in Regency-era England, only with more hordes of the undead.
Lily James and Sam Riley play Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. (Because nothing sends the heart a-flutter like a vigorous day of battling zombies.) Bella Heathcote, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey also star. Watch the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer after the jump.

Bradley Cooper has already been nominated for an Oscar four times, and The Weinstein Company is probably hoping that he can get another nomination as a struggling chef desperately trying to make a comeback in a big way.
Burnt sees Cooper play Adam Jones, a former star chef who landed two coveted Michelin stars, and as one of the characters in the new Burnt trailer says, you have to be like Luke Skywalker in order to get just one of them. But what if he’s more like the Darth Vader of chefs? Either way, Jones now wants his third Michelin star, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen. Read More »

It’s been a long road for the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s period romance/horror remix Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get made, but the film will arrive in theaters next February.
