Logan Lucky Trailer

After planning three heists in Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, the formerly retired Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera for a new heist, and he’s brought his Magic Mike star with him.

Logan Lucky follows Channing Tatum as Jimmy Logan, a thirtysomething man fired from his job, looking to turn the bad luck of the Logan family around once and for all by pulling off a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. But he’ll need the help of his reluctant, one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and an incarcerated robbery expert named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) to help him out. It’s the kind of comedic crime you’d expect from Steven Soderbergh, and a new trailer just arrived with a bunch of new footage.

Logan Lucky trailer

Steven Soderbergh‘s “anti-glam Ocean’s 11” looks, to put it simply, like a blast. Based on the first footage from Logan Lucky, which arrived over the weekend, Daniel Craig‘s performance alone as Joe Bang may be worth the price of admission. We haven’t seen Craig quite like this before, and the same can be said for the rest of the stellar cast in Soderbergh’s blessed return to filmmaking.

Below, watch the Logan Lucky trailer.

Logan Lucky plot details

When Steven Soderbergh first read Rebecca Blunt’s script, Logan Lucky, it was to make a suggestion for who should direct. This was in the fall of 2014 after the Traffic and Magic Mike director announced his retirement from moviemaking. After reading Blunt’s script, though, Soderbergh was inspired enough to return to features.

His first theatrical release since 2013’s Side Effects comes out this August. Logan Lucky is another heist movie from Soderbergh, but he describes it as an “inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” without the gloss and cool factor. Below, the director shares some Logan Lucky plot details and discusses his return to directing movies.

the knick canceled

The doctor is out, and The Knick is no more.

The Steven Soderbergh-helmed period medical drama has officially been canceled by Cinemax after two critically acclaimed seasons. The news comes more than a year after the Season 2 finale, which seemed pretty — erm — final for one particular main character.

Spoilers ahead, of course, as we linger on this show’s demise.

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched in 2016

Steven Soderbergh hasn’t been making as many movies or TV shows as he used to, but he’s still keeping busy watching and reading everything he can get his hands on. It’s become a tradition of the filmmaker to reveal everything that he watched and read the previous year, and his list from 2016 has been posted.

Keep in mind, Soderbergh watched and read all this stuff while working on his own comedy film Logan Lucky (which he watches more than a few times towards the end of the year). Soderbergh also got really into David Fincher this year by watching The Social Network, Panic Room, The Game, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Fight Club, and Se7en. But perhaps the most exciting thing he got to see from Fincher is episodes of the director’s Netflix series Mindhunters.

godless series

Steven Soderbergh is great at many things, but he is terrible at retirement. He spent his break away from film directing working in TV and theater and serving as a DP to his former AD. Eventually he decided to give up on this whole “retirement from movies” thing altogether and started prepping Logan Lucky as his next feature, and now he’s lined up another movie after that.

As announced by Grey Matter Productions and Anonymous Content, Soderbergh will produce and potentially direct a movie based on the Panama Papers. In one of the largest data leaks in history, 11.5 million documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonesca were revealed, detailing the legal and illegal ways that the rich and powerful hide their money. More on the Steven Soderbergh Panama Papers movie below.  Read More »

Magic Mike Live

We may not see Michael “Magic Mike” Lane ever again. News had been mostly quiet — too quiet — regarding Magic Mike 3 since XXL tore theaters up last summer. The sequel didn’t sell as many tickets as the first film did, but it performed decently enough, and the diehard Magic Mike fans responded well to the delightful road trip movie. So, with that success in mind, the question is: Why aren’t we going to see Magic Mike XXXL or a Magic Mike 3D? Well, we’re technically going to see a Magic Mike 3, just not in theaters.

Below, Channing Tatum provides an unfortunate Magic Mike 3 update.

“We’ll break the cast right now and blow up the Internet,” director Gary Ross joked after we mentioned Ocean’s Eight to him. No, the Free State of Jones writer and director didn’t reveal to us the film’s entire ensemble cast, which has been previously reported or rumored to star Sandra BullockCate BlanchettHelena Bonham CarterMindy Kaling, and Elizabeth Banks. One thing Ross did tell us, however, is that his film is very much a continuation of the tone Steven Soderbergh established with his incredibly entertaining Ocean’s remake trilogy.
