For some reason, he decides that the easiest way to do so is by doing driving around an eccentric billionaire and catering to his every whim.

Today we have the official trailer for the upcoming "Stretch" comedy thriller, starring Chris Pine, Patrick Wilson, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ray Liotta, Randy Couture, James Badge Dale, Ed Helms and David Hasselhoff. Check it out below. Plot: The story focuses on a down-on-his-luck limo driver named Stretch (Wilson) who discovered he only has one shift left to pay off a big debt to a bookie. When the chauffeur picks up a reclusive billionaire (Pine) with some deviant appetites, Stretch vows to fulfill his every request, no matter how weird, to score the big tip that could settle his score. As the night grows stranger and Stretch is pushed into some dangerous encounters, he worries that the freak in his back seat might just be his final fare. The new movie is directed by Joe Carnahan (The Grey), who shot the film for under $5 million. It will likely not get a theatrical release. »
I get the impression Joe Carnahan's Stretch is going to be closer to Smokin' Aces than to Narc, which is alright with me, though I would love to see him deliver another gritty little feature like Narc. Today, following a flurry of clips, pictures, a gag reel and more clips, the first trailer for the upcoming release has arrived for your judgment. Universal is going an interesting route with this one after pulling it from the release schedule earlier this year. Now the plan is to premiere it on iTunes and Amazon.com on October 7 followed by an On Demand release on October 14. Based on this it sounds like it won't be hitting theaters at all. Too bad. Stretch is described as an action comedy/thriller centering on a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) looking to relieve himself of some debt when he starts working for a billionaire (Chris Pine) who makes his life hell. »

"All this weirdness that I got sucked into tonight woke me up."
This month we've been treated to several photos and film clips from director Joe Carnahan's crazy cool-looking movie, Stretch. If you enjoyed Smokin' Aces, then you're going to love what this film has to offer because it looks like it might just be even more insane.
Patrick Wilson stars in the film as "a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back."
I love the over-the-top absurdity that I'm seeing in this movie. This thing is going to be a fast-paced roller coaster ride of greatness. The movie also co-stars Norman Reedus, Jessica Alba, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, Ray Liotta, Mindy Robinson, Randy Couture, and David Hasselhoff.
Stretch hits theaters and VOD on October 7th. Thanks to EW for the trailer.

Just two weeks after a gag reel surfaced, the first trailer has finally arrived for Stretch, the latest offering from director Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey). Patrick Wilson stars as a downtrodden man taking on a job as a limo driver to earn some extra money, where he picks up an eccentric millionaire (Chris Pine), who puts him through hell and back.
In addition, we also have the first clip that shows Patrick Wilson interacting with David Hasselhoff, playing himself, who isn't too pleased about the chauffeur being an hour late. Check out the latest footage, then read on for more information.
Back in January, Universal Pictures pulled the plug on Stretch, just before it was set for release on March 21. The studio claimed they didn't want to spend between $20 million and $40 million to promote the movie, which only cost $5 million to make. Our report from last week revealed »
Joe Carnahan’s Stretch has been dealt blow after blow during its post-production. The gritty low-budget offering from the director of The Grey and The A-Team staggered about in limbo after Universal pulled it from its allotted March release. And took away its $40 million marketing budget. Following an extensive recut by Carnahan, the studio now looks set to deliver the fun caper this October and today, they have planted the first trailer online.
Following “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back,” Carnahan’s tale distinctly places it in the realms of his earlier works. Except this time it doesn’t venture to the dark, sombre recesses of humanity (Narc), but instead presents like a darker, funnier, edgier version of Driving Miss Daisy. You might expect bonkers behaviour, and you’ll be pleased to hear there’s »

Since director Joe Carnahan decided to take the marketing into this own hands, we’ve already seen a number of clips, images, and even a gag reel from his new film Stretch. However, the first official Stretch trailer has now been released online, giving us a better handle on the plot for this colorful, insane-looking action comedy. The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (James Badge Dale). As we can see from this trailer, he comes across a number of unusual characters during his service, and things appear to get weirder and weirder as the night wears on. I loved the introspective nature of Carnahan’s The Grey, but it’s nice to see that he’s still able to have fun with things like this and The Blacklist, and Stretch certainly appears to be a very wild ride indeed. »

Living in Seattle means I wasn't able to attend a screening of Joe Carnahan's Stretch which took place last Thursday, September 18. I'm not sure who all attended the screening, and I'm not sure if Universal was allowing anyone to talk about it or review it, but with an On Demand release coming in October, I'll hopefully be seeing it soon enough with the rest of you. All that said, four new clips from the film have just surfaced, one of the most interesting features David Hasselhoff giving Patrick Wilson a piece of his mind in a not safe for work, profanity riddled rant. In the film Wilson plays a down-on-his-luck chauffeur and in this clip he's an hour late to pick up The Hoff. Oops. Along with Wilson and Hasselhoff, the film co-stars Ed Helms, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta and Eddie J. Fernandez. Along »

Voice acting in games has come a hell of a long way in the last 30 years, and as the industry itself has grown, matured and flexed its financial muscles, we’ve seen everything from actors finding fame in their respective games – the Uncharted series’ Nolan North for example – alongside already notable celebrities lending their talents to any number of titles.
Is it a good thing though?
Grand Theft Auto-developer Rockstar made a very poignant shift with GTA IV and their turn away from prominent celebrity voice actors, guys like Joe Pantoliano, Ray Liotta and Samuel L. Jackson were featured pretty heavily in titles like GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas respectively, with Rockstar noting that audiences always ended up hearing the actor instead of the character.
It’s a really good point, as when you think about it unless there are actors like Mark Hamill who can »

As I’ve said on multiple occasions, I’m a big Joe Carnahan fan, and I can’t wait to see his latest film, Stretch. The movie stars Patrick Wilson as “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back.” These three clips show off the film’s delightful lunacy, and I’m reminded of how well he utilized Chris Pine in Smokin’ Aces by getting him to play against type. But the real scene-stealer could be David Hasselhoff, who, as we can see from one of these clips, does not like to be kept waiting. Hit the jump to check out the Stretch clips. The film also stars Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Norman Reedus, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta, and Shaun Toub. Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon.

For Ashley Judd, it's been a tough couple of weekends at the box office. The actress starred with Harry Connick Jr. and Morgan Freeman in the family film “Dolphin Tale 2,” which was projected by analysts to win its opening weekend, but came in with a soft $16.5 million Sunday for Warner Bros. That comes one week after “The Identical,” a Christian-themed indie musical drama in which she starred with Blake Rayne and Ray Liotta, bombed with less than $1.5 million despite being in more than 1,900 theaters. Things didn't get any better this weekend, as “The Identical” brought in just »

When Universal decided to abandon director Joe Carnahan's latest action-comedy Stretch, pulling its release date in exchange for a VOD premiere, many feared the worst. But the film has received quite a bit of praise as it nears its Amazon and iTunes release on October 7, followed by its VOD debut on October 14.
The film follows Patrick Wilson as a down-on-his-luck chauffeur tasked with driving around an eccentric millionaire played by Chris Pine in what can only be described as a departure from his usual roles. Joe Carnahan has shared some behind-the-scenes fun with a blooper reel that highlights Chris Pine's outrageous performance. The actor even goes somewhat nude in this footage.
Just how off the rails is this movie? We'll have to wait until October to find out. For now, take a look at this sneak peek of deleted footage.
Director Joe Carnahan’s action-comedy Stretch was one of my most anticipated films of this spring, so I was quite disappointed when Universal decided to abandon the film’s theatrical release plan at the last minute. Thankfully, the movie is finally set to be released VOD next month, and Carnahan has been doing a fantastic job of handling the film’s marketing duties by himself. The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (Chris Pine). We’ve already seen some images and clips that show off the batshit insanity that we can expect from the movie itself, and today Carnahan released a Stretch gag reel that proves Chris Pine is an untapped well of comedic gold. The guy is funny, and his character looks to be positively off-the-rails. Give me this movie now, please. Hit the »

Joe Carnahan's action, comedy, thriller Stretch was supposed to have hit theaters earlier this year, all the way back in March, before Universal dropped it from its release calendar. Now the film has something of a release date as Universal Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing it on Video On Demand some time in October, though a specific release date is not yet known. It would appear it's actually going to happen this time, however, as Carnahan has been leading the charge marketing the film, largely on Twitter with new pictures and now four clips (somewhat not safe for work) from the movie. The movie centers on a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) looking to relieve himself of some debt when he starts working for a billionaire who makes his life hell. Along with Wilson the film co-stars Ed Helms, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, David Hasselhoff, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta »

Since 2011’s “The Grey,” director Joe Carnahan has had trouble mounting a followup. First there was his failed pitch for “Daredevil,” then the creative differences with MGM on the “Death Wish” remake, but it looked as if things had turned the corner for the “Narc” filmmaker when he completed work on the low-budget thriller “Stretch.” That is, until Universal dropped the title from its schedule earlier this year. But the Patrick Wilson-starring film is set to premiere on VOD next month, and a few clips have surfaced to give us a glimpse at the delayed film. The high concept thriller follows Wilson as a chauffeur whose night on the job gets crazier thanks to the demands of his billionaire client (played by Chris Pine). Wilson's wild evening brings him into the orbit of a cast that includes Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, Norman Reedus, Brooklyn Decker, Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff. »

Coming from Smokin' Aces, The Grey, and Narc director Joe Carnahan, Stretch looks absolutely insane!! Filled with some big name cameos and general off the wall weirdness, the movie stars Patrick Wilson as a limo driver whose life is turned into living by an eccentric billionaire, and also stras Chris Pine, Ray Liotta, and Jessica Alba. No concrete release date has been given for the movie as of yet, but it's social media campaign is already in full swing, and if the rest of the movie is as weird and wonderful as the below clips (yes, that is a blood soaked Norman Reedus playing himself), you will definitely want to get in on Stretch at the ground floor. »

For those of you who haven't heard of Stretch, it is Joe Carnahan's (Smoking Aces, Narc) latest film baby with an all-star cast including Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms and Ray Liotta. The story centers around a chauffeur (Wilson) who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire (Pine). As the night goes on, their interaction leads to dangerous encounters. While it was originally slated for March, Universal dropped it like a hot potato and it's been »
