Often the release of a red-band trailer means that we’re going to see way too much from a film that is still weeks from release. But in the case of this Stretch red-band trailer, it shows off stuff from a movie you can watch right now. Universal may have decided that Joe Carnahan‘s late-night whackadoo adventure wasn’t a theatrical bet on which it wanted to gamble, but the movie is on digital outlets and VOD right now. So you can see Patrick Wilson as a limo driver, Chris Pine as a rich kook, Ed Helms as, well, a ghost, I guess, and a whole bunch of other people too.
This trailer embraces being adults-only; it’s got violence, cursing, nudity, and a lot of weird stuff. It isn’t safe for work, but it might just be as crazy as the film. Read More »

Sex scenes can feel incredibly hot and intimate for those of us watching in the audience, but for the people actually shooting them it’s a different story. The latest behind-the-scenes clip from Joe Carnahan‘s Stretch really drives that point home, showing us what it’s really like for Patrick Wilson and Brooklyn Decker to pretend to screw one another for our enjoyment.
While we’ve seen plenty of clips showing us what action scenes look like before the effects wizards come in to erase the wires and draw in the explosions, this is a rare look at the making of a Hollywood sex scene. Hit the jump to check out the NSFW (for language, not nudity) footage.

So Katherine Heigl and Patrick Wilson star in Home Sweet Hell, a vision of a very messy marriage. Wilson plays the former used-car salesman husband, and Heigl the woman who has smoothed him out over the years. But he’s having an affair, with Jordana Brewster, and when she claims to be pregnant, Heigl’s character responds with murderous intent. Heigl is actually in a sort of Lisa Kudrow mode here as she orders murder in the most peppy, up-beat manner. (Shades of Serial Mom come to mind, too.) This Home Sweet Hell red-band trailer is somewhat cute and not safe for work. Read More »
The story of Stretch, a colorful thriller from director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) has turned into quite a saga. Carnahan shot the $5m film last year, with Patrick Wilson as a limo driver who is in serious financial trouble, and appearances from James Badge Dale, Chris Pine, Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, and Norman Reedus. Universal scotched its original release plan for the film, but has now formally set an October 7 digital release date, and a VOD debut to follow. With those dates comes a great Stretch trailer, which you can see below.

There’s still no word on when Stretch might make its way to theaters or VOD, but in the meantime director Joe Carnahan has been doling out delightful tidbits for us to enjoy. The more he reveals, the stranger this film looks, and we definitely mean that as a compliment.
The latest Stretch scene may just take the cake, though. It involves an epic profanity-laced rant from David Hasselhoff, who is apparently none too pleased with Patrick Wilson‘s lack of respect. Hit the jump to watch the new Stretch clip featuring David Hasselhoff, plus a few more scenes.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Joe Carnahan shot a film called Stretch last year, with Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Patrick Wilson, and Brooklyn Decker in the cast. Originally set to be released by Universal, it’s not your average studio movie — for instance, that’s Chris Pine in the film, above. Pine’s character is a billionaire who has a shady deal in mind, and recruits the main character of the movie, a chauffeur played by Patrick Wilson, to drive him around as he gets things in motion.
Carnahan himself has said it’s a weird movie, and it has gone through a bit of a weird phase. Originally set for release this past March, the Jason Blum-produced Stretch has been in a sort of limbo as it finds a new release plan. Now Carnahan is releasing the first pictures (and a very small bit of video) from the film, and you can see just how wild it might be. Read More »
Changes continue for Marvel Studios and Ant-Man. While the film retained its primary cast members, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, after original writer/director Edgar Wright left the project, other members of the supporting cast have now departed. Patrick Wilson, who signed on early this year, has dropped out of the cast, along with Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman. Read More »
Patrick Wilson is joining Ant-Man, to be directed by Edgar Wright, in a role that is yet to be revealed. He was often brought up by speculators as a good choice for Hank Pym, the originator of the Ant-Man technology, but he won’t have that role in the film.
Wilson adds to the existing roster of Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Pena. Rudd is playing Scott Lang, at one point a thief and eventually the second Ant-Man, while Douglas is playing Pym. Read More »
Briefly: Six months ago, who would have though James Wan’s The Conjuring would itself conjure not one, but two, follow-ups? A spin-off, Annabelle, is currently filming. Now Warner Bros. has set a prime October 23, 2015 release date for the direct sequel to the paranormal investigation film. Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes are writing and Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are now confirmed to return. There’s no word on the plot, but Lorraine Warren was again interviewed extensively as research.
