Tag Movie Clip

Don’t be surprised if you see adults regressing back to their childhood after they see this summer’s comedy Tag.

The feature directorial debut from television and stand-up special director Jeff Tomsic follows Ed Helms, Hannibal Buress, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner and Jake Johnson as a group of five friends who have been playing a game of tag intermittently for around 30 years. Based on a surprisingly true story, the film brings a mix of stylized action and comedy together for a movie that could be the sleeper hit of the summer. Read More »

Tag - Jeremy Renner's Broken Arms

One of the more unique offerings coming to theaters this summer is the comedy Tag. Based on a surprisingly true story, the film follows a group of friends played by Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Isla Fisher and Hannibal Buress who who have played a game of tag one month out of the year for around 30 years. Even though the premise is far more simple than your average summer blockbuster, the movie will feature a surprising amount of CGI for one very specific reason.

You might remember hearing that Jeremy Renner broke his arms last summer. Funnily enough, he didn’t break them while filming his role as Hawkeye while shooting an Avengers movie. Instead, he broke them during a stunt that went a little awry while shooting Tag, and Renner ended up having to wear a couple green screen casts that will be digitally removed in the movie.

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.

wind river trailer

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.
