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 »

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. »

Jessica Alba - the sexy Us actress says she regrets not going to college. The 'Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For' actress admits she was ''always kind of insecure'' when she was younger and never felt smart because she didn't finish her education. The 33-year-old star, who has daughters, Haven, three, and Honor, six, with husband Cash Warren, said: ''I was always also insecure about not going to college and I always felt I wasn't smart enough. ''My teens and my 20s I just wasn't sure of myself and I was always kind of insecure and I always felt I needed to apologise for myself.'' The brunette beauty credits her family and getting older for helping her to become more confident. The 'Fantastic Four' actress, whose eco-friendly brand The Honest Company was recently valued at almost $1 billion, told 'The Meredith Vieira Show': ''After I became, »
With films such as Narc, The A-Team and The Grey under his belt, you would think it would a little easier these days for director Joe Carnahan to get his films made. However, his latest film Stretch, a low-budget thriller made with small-budget horror specialists Blumhouse, the film was due to bow in March this year, but was dropped by Universal earlier in the year.
The film, which is now set to debut on VOD this month, has some big talent involved, including Chris Pine (Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Insidious), Ed Harris (The Rock, Snowpiercer), Ed Helms (The Hangover), Brooklyn Dekker (Battleship), and Jessica Alba (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), but it seems even they were not enough for the studio to fully back the film.
According to Deadline, Blumhouse is launching a new venture, Bh Tilt, aimed at putting together multi-platform releases »

Jessica Alba's won awards for being smokin' hot, but that doesn't mean she's always felt that way! The Fantastic Four actress opened up to Meredith Vieira on The Meredith Vieira Show on Wednesday, Sept. 10, and admitted that growing up, she actually felt "always kind of insecure."

The film also stars Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Jessica Alba. You get a look at most of these character in the photos provided. That's a crazy-looking Pine in the image above. It looks like it have that same awesome style and tone of Carnhan's Smokin' Aces, so it should be a fun ride.
Carnahan made the film for around $5 million, and I'm very excited about seeing it. You can check out the image and a couple of brief clips below, and I have no idea what »

Today we have the first photos from 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 everything 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. »
Joe Carnahan’s Stretch has been in the can for awhile and pulled through the ringer by Universal. After the studio snatched away a $40 million marketing budget, the flick has languished in post-production. It’s even getting re-cut. The story of a “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back” doubles as a brief summary for the film’s production woes.
Even if there’s no official release, that ain’t gonna stop Carnahan from self-promotion. Taking to Twitter, the director has been publishing a slew of pics and a brief video clip from the movie. For such a bold filmmaker, it’s frustrating to see the lack of support from the studio – this has all the markings of a cult smash. Carnahan has hinted that he hopes for a festival premiere sometime this fall, after the re-edit. »

Joe Carnahan shot a film called Stretch last year, with Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Patrick Wilson, and Brooklyn Decker in the cast. Originally set to be released by Universal, it’s not your average studio movie — for instance, that’s Chris Pine in the film, above. Pine’s character is a billionaire who has a shady deal […]

Maybe it's not the best idea to feature the word "cock" in our header image, but Steve and the guys are currently enjoying Toronto International Film Festival 2014 and have left me in charge, so anything goes! Besides, I'm happy to do anything we can in order to help director Joe Carnahan get the word out about his new thriller, Stretch. The low-budget action film took a hit when Universal dropped it due to distribution and marketing budget concerns, so Carnahan sacked up and decided to do the advertising himself. A selection of new images is just the first entry in his new social media campaign, with plenty more to come. Starring 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,” the cast also includes Chris Pine, Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Dekker, James Badge Dale, »
