When he's not dispatching zombies on The Walking Dead, Ross Marquand does some pretty stellar impersonations of actors like Kevin Spacey, John Malkovich, Jack Nicholson and many more. In a video for Esquire, Marquand displays a handful of those great impressions, but there's a twist. The casting remix video puts James Gandolfini in The Godfather, Michael Keaton in Mommie Dearest and Marlon Brando... Read More »

Baby Driver, sharing a core premise with that of neon-noir thriller Drive, tells the story of a music dependant getaway driver who falls in love, ultimately having to pull off one last heist. The film stars Ansel Elgort as the peculiarly named Baby, along with an all star cast including Jaime Foxx, John Hamm, and Jon Bernthal.
Wright recently spilled the beans at SXSW on just how the idea for his passion project came to be.
“I had the germ of this movie rattling around in my head for a long time,” said Wright, explaining that 22 years ago, »

The best cinematic action of 2017 in three parts from the movies of SXSW.
It was heavier than I had anticipated. At the age of 16, if my memory serves me correctly, it was the first time I’d ever held a real gun. In the midwest, surrounded by a family full of avid hunters, this was a right of passage. At some point an uncle or two would want to show you the awesome power of a real firearm, both as appreciation for the weapon’s power and as a lesson in the seriousness of its deadly potential. The weight of the revolver in my hand brought both of these concepts to life with immediacy. It’s hard to hold a real gun and not be in awe and at least a little terrified. It’s a feeling I’ll never shake, perhaps one of those moments in which a teenager’s journey toward adulthood was accelerated a »

As the conclusion to South by Southwest (or, as we all know it, SXSW) for 2017 came last week, so too came some awards, much like at any number of film festivals. Some of the top prizes went to movies like Baby Driver, The Big Sick, Dealt, The Light of the Moon, and Mr. Roosevelt, along with Judd Apatow’s surprise music documentary May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers. This isn’t the type of event where a prize can create Academy Award buzz, partly due to the time of the year, but it can create awareness. SXSW wrapped up over the weekend with a screening of Life (which I see in a few days and will then discuss), but these flicks were the highlights, for the most part. Below you will see the SXSW awards in their entirety, but first, a little bit on those two titles »

It costars Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Lily James and Eiza González. Wells, who also wrote, produces and stars in “Roosevelt,” spins a semi-autobiographical tale of a Los Angeles comedian who returns home to contend with her ex-boyfriend and his lovable new girlfriend. »

Previous nominees Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan“) and Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards“) can absolutely return to the fold, but we think newcomers Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld“) and Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us“) will steal their thunder. [Posted March 17]

A second trailer dropped for the third film in our favourite franchise about minions. Steve Carell is taking on double duty as he not only returns as Gru, but we also get to meet his twin brother, Dru. The two team up for another heist, and they definitely look like they'll make one hilarious duo.

There’s not many places on Earth more bright, glitzy and glamorous than Las Vegas. With its famous shows, many casinos and constant parties, it’s no surprise that the city in the desert is popular with Hollywood and the film industry. Situated just 263 miles east of Los Angeles and the film community, Vegas has attracted the attention of movie producers for decades.
Founded in 1905, not too long after the birth of the movie industry itself, the City Of Las Vegas first appeared in a motion picture in 1952. The film was The Las Vegas Story, a Howard Hughes production starring Jane Russell and Victor Mature that was a suspenseful thriller involving murder and intrigue. It was quickly followed by the likes of Crashing Las Vegas and Meet Me In Las Vegas a few years later, but it was the arrival of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean’s 11 which really united »

Following an explosively buzzy premiere at South by Southwest 2017, TriStar Pictures’ “Baby Driver” has become one of the first films to enter this year’s awards conversation. Writer-director Edgar Wright gained critical success and a devoted fan base with his 2004 horror-comedy “Shaun of the Dead,” 2010 action-adventure “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and more. “Baby Driver,” which filmed last year in Atlanta and screened March 11 at SXSW to immediate raves, marks the first U.S. premiere for the English filmmaker. Atlanta Now Casting: Short Film “Capital Vice” + More Projects Ansel Elgort stars as a young getaway driver whose abilities behind the wheel are fueled by his personal soundtrack. Coerced into a series of heists by Kevin Spacey’s crime boss, Baby, as he’s known, is torn between the gang (Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, and Jon Bernthal among them) and an honest life with the girl of his dreams (Lily James »

If you were going to recruit a celebrity team to help you pull off a massive heist, who would you pick? Ansel Elgort wouldn't necessarily be at the top of our list, but Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright could not have chosen better for Baby Driver. The action flick sees Elgort as Baby, a talented getaway driver who has to complete one last job for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) before he can leave that world behind him with his girlfriend (Lily James). The trailer is not only full of insane driving and nuggets of wisdom from Jamie Foxx ("The moment you catch feelings, is the moment you catch a bullet") but also a pretty great soundtrack. See it when it hits theaters on Aug. 11. »

"Baby Driver is fantastic, an adrenaline-fueled, music-driven gem that gets faster and greater as it rides," tweeted our own Erik Davis following the movie's SXSW premiere Saturday night. He also calls it "brilliant" and makes the case that it deserves an Oscar nomination for "its wicked editing skills." While the rest of us have to wait until late summer to see for ourselves, for now we can check out two new trailers that also dropped over the weekend. When it comes out: August 11 Who is in it: Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez, Flea What it's about: Elgort plays Baby (yes, Baby), a getaway driver who works for crime boss Spacey.

There are still a lot of us who wished Edgar Wright had been able to work things out with Marvel and do Ant-Man the way he wanted to do it. I no longer wish that. Why, you might ask would a Marvel loving man who has adored just about everything Edgar Wright has ever done say something so seemingly blasphemous? Because he got to make Baby Driver and oh man, it is so crazy good.
TriStar Pictures' Baby Driver centers on a talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) who goes by the name of Baby. He relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best at what he does; which is driving fast in high-pressure situations. Things get dicey after he is coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey). As one might expect in a movie about crime, things don't go as planned and »
At long last, the first official trailer for Edgar Wright's new film, Baby Driver, has arrived showing off some stunning action, signature style, and some interesting story. Come inside to check it out!
It's been a criminally long time since an Edgar Wright movie has graced the big screen. After he left Marvel's Ant-Man project many wondered what his next film would be and when we'd see it. While we've know about Baby Driver for quite some time now, it's only recently we've gotten a chance to see some of it in action...sweet glorious action:
The trailer debuted over the weekend as the film made an appearance at SXSW (where it's getting some great early reviews), and I'm already smitten. The action looks incredible, and while it seems a tad different from the normal Edgar Wright movies, his signature style is all over it. I'm pretty stoked and eager to see more. »

The latest film from Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim), Baby Driver is a heist movie ith a difference. The films central character, Baby , is a getaway driver who – following an accident as a kid – has constant ear problems; but to drown out his troubles he uses music – music which also makes him get into the groove of driving, making him “the best in the business”.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Whilst Baby Driver is not out in the UK until August, the film »

To achieve success (no matter your profession), one must stand out from the crowd. No filmmaker understands this better than Edgar Wright. His movies take on this life of their own, defined by calculated ingenuity. A booze soaked sci-fi invasion? Easy. A satirical zombie homage? Try overnight classic. Wright doesn’t just play in a sandbox, he creates living, breathing worlds out of lines in the sand – but even for Mr. Wright, Baby Diver boasts ambition at irreplicable volumes.
Ansel Elgort leads Wright’s action-comedy-heist as Baby, a getaway driver who suffers from tinnitus (a ringing noise only Baby can hear). This leads to constant iPod usage that keeps him focused (distracted), which Wright cues every single movement in Baby Driver to. Yes, you read correctly. We watch Baby Driver from Elgort’s perspective, where actions are fluidly choreographed to whatever track he’s currently blasting. Gunshots match with bass drum beats. »
