12 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What's the worst thing you did as a kid? For the protagonists in Cop Car, it looks like the act of stealing the vehicle in the film's title would take that honor. Of course, when that cop is Kevin Bacon, and his trunk is loaded with a mysterious payload, things are bound to go just a bit deeper into the land of trouble. See for yourself in the trailer below.  Yahoo released the first look at the next film from Clown director Jon Watts, and it sounds like a damned good time. Cop Car, as promised, shows two young boys jackassing in the woods and getting into mischief as any two kids with time on their hands would do. Surprisingly enough, they stumble upon an abandoned cop car, and decide it'd be an awesome idea to steal it. For a moment, it is pretty awesome, until Kevin Bacon's crooked »

Cop Car Trailer Joyrides Online

18 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Hot on the heels of his Clown, Jon Watts' next thriller is already almost upon us. Cop Car stars Kevin Bacon as a lawman with a very particular set of problems, and the trailer has just pulled up.As you'll just have seen, the film involves two boys who find a police cruiser apparently abandoned in the woods and unwisely decide to take it for a joyride. Understandably it turns out their owner wants it back, but perhaps not entirely for reasons of the boys' safety. What, we wonder, is in that trunk?"There’s a certain type of person that will take that time to grow that kind of a mustache..." ">says Bacon. But he's keen to stress that Cop Car is "not the darkest place I've gone" on film, referring, obviously, to those Union Jack shorts in the Ee advert.Cop Car has been gaining enthusiastic passengers »

Watch: Kevin Bacon Yells at Kids in Trailer for 'Cop Car'

21 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"A wild blend of innocence and Coen brothers violence," reads a pull-quote from the trailer for Cop Car, a new thriller from Focus World starring Kevin Bacon. I watched the trailer, and I know it's just marketing and trailers are misleading and yada-yada-yada but I'm curious to see what exactly warranted such highfalutin name dropping, because what I saw was Kevin Bacon with a pushbroom mustache expecting children to understand what a "felony offense" is while yelling, "You don't steal a cop car!" From the synopsis: When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a quick joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences. Perhaps I should give this one the benefit of the doubt considering I haven't seen it, »

Watch: 'Cop Car' Trailer - Two Kids Go Joyriding in Kevin Bacon's Car

23 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Their first drive could be their last. Focus World has unleashed the trailer for Cop Car, starring Kevin Bacon, a Sundance 2015 Park City at Midnight cult hit that will definitely find an audience when it hits theaters this summer. Cop Car is, as it sounds, about two kids who steal a cop car and go joyriding on rural highways. However, there's a bigger back story involving Kevin Bacon's character that makes things much more interesting. This is one of those films that is best seen without knowing anything beforehand, as the trailer shows quite a bit of footage. But if you're curious to know what the heck this is even about - fire it up. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jon Watts' Cop Car, originally from Yahoo: Kevin Bacon stars in director Jon Watts' delightful throwback thriller Cop Car.

27 May 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus World has released the first trailer for the indie thriller Cop Car, and the moral of the story seems to be, “Don’t mess with creepy guys who have mustaches.” The film follows two young boys who stumble across an abandoned cop car and decide to take it on a joy ride. However, when the county sheriff discovers them, brutal consequences ensue. The movie actually looks quite good, with a tone in line with a Coen Brothers film and a menacing performance by Kevin Bacon. It’s a bit like Stand By Me, only with a horror movie twist. Check out the Cop Car trailer below, via Yahoo! Movies, and click here to read Matt's review from Sundance. Written by Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford and directed by Watts, the movie also stars Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, James Freedson-Jackson, and Hays Welford. Cop Car will be released in »

27 May 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In the first official trailer for the Jon Watts thriller “Cop Car” starring Kevin Bacon, it becomes clear that Bacon’s character will do anything to get what he wants, even if it’s at a deadly price.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and co-stars Shea Whigham and Camryn Manheim. »

Watch: Kevin Bacon Tries To End The Joy Ride In First Trailer For 'Cop Car'

27 May 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If your foot is still twitching for more fuel injected action after "Furious 7," a smaller movie with less cars-flying-through-expensive-skyscrapers is coming. "Cop Car" may be modestly sized, but it still has a big chase at the center, and today comes the first trailer for the thriller. Read More: Sundance Review: 'Cop Car' Starring Kevin Bacon In An Unsatisfying Ride Making its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the film finds Kevin Bacon in baddie mode, playing a corrupt cop who does everything he can to stop a couple of kids who go on a joyride with an abandoned cop car. The film from Jon Watts is intriguing, but as our review unfortunately notes, it's "comprised of terrible coincidences, bad mustaches and a pervasive sense of desperation. It’s also wholly unable to live up to its obvious promise." "Cop Car" opens on August 7th. »

Watch: How to Get Kevin Bacon to Read Your Script (Exclusive Video)

27 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone loves Kevin Bacon. At the very least, everyone loves at least one film or TV show the extremely prolific actor has appeared in over the past few decades. Having just finished a three-season run on Fox's "The Following," Bacon's next big film appearances include "Cop Car" (which premiered at Sundance in January) and the Ridley Scott's "Black Mass" alongside Johnny Depp (which is set for a September release). And who can forget the "Wake up to Eggs with Bacon" commercials, arguably his greatest role to date? In an interview with Sam Jones, though, Bacon plays the role of himself — 98 percent of the time. He discusses everything from the moment he realized his true calling as an actor to the strange interaction he had with a fan on the beach (complete with an impression) that resulted in finding an incredible script. Though unnamed, the Oscar-caliber screenplay turned out to be "The Woodsman, »

Johnny Depp is teaching lessons in new trailer for ‘Black Mass’

26 May 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Johnny Depp can still act? It appears so after this new trailer for the upcoming Black Mass.

A new trailer for Depp’s latest film debuted on Sunday and displayed that the actor could be in for an acting renaissance after this performance that could land him in awards season for once. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, and Corey Stoll.

The first trailer gave us an idea of what to expect, but this one digs more into the plot.

Directed by Scott Cooper, the new trailer dives into the psyche of mobster Whitey Bulger (Depp) as he goes about his business — and dishes out life lessons. It also gives us a glimpse at the big cast, which features a host of large names, making this a must see later this year.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Johnny Depp returns to the life of crime in new Black Mass trailer

25 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Johnny Depp is no stranger to over-the-top costumes and makeup. Basically all of his roles require some kind of physical transformation, whether that means a giant top hat and crazy orange wig for Alice in Wonderland, or ghostly-white makeup and prosthetic blade-hands in Edward Scissorhands.

He’s at it again, transforming into real-life criminal Whitey Bulger for this year’s Black Mass. Practically unrecognizable as the Boston gangster, Depp sports ice-blue contacts and a serious bald spot. Doing double duty as both a violent criminal and an FBI informant, Depp plays Bulger at the most complicated time in his life.

Black Mass also stars Dakota Johnson as Bulger’s wife, Benedict Cumberbatch as Bulger’s state senator brother, as well as Juno Temple, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, and Corey Stoll.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

25 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »
