“Are you a firestarter?” That’s the deceptively flippant question repeatedly leveled at Patrick Wilson’s in-over-his-head limo driver by batshit billionaire client Roger Kairos (Chris Pine), who lands the poor guy – named Kevin and nicknamed Stretch – in a whole world of trouble over one crazy night during this wildly entertaining action farce (simply titled Stretch).
Although it takes a long while to figure out an answer, audiences should already know going in that there’s at least one firestarter involved in this production – director Joe Carnahan. Throughout his career, the helmer has delivered more than his fair share of stylish flicks winkingly infused with genre tropes and over-the-top, testosterone-fueled action. Whatever project he’s working on, Carnahan goes at it with equal parts intensity and intelligence. Consequently, he’s delivered an outstanding range of films, some which deal in hopped-up machismo fantasies (The A-Team) and others which work more »

To Live and Drive in La: Carnahan’s Trip into Hollyweird
In an unprecedented and surprisingly brusque move, Universal chose to dump Joe Carnahan’s latest film, Stretch into a sole VOD platform release, bypassing a theatrical run completely. While this signifies the studio’s lack of confidence in the title, it’s most likely a herald of things to come for filmmakers working within the system. The rule of thumb in the film industry used to be that you’re only as good as your last picture, but Carnahan received some of the best notices of his directorial career with 2012’s The Grey—it no longer seems to matter just how well your last picture performed. In defense of the eclectic director’s tastes, his latest is a bizarre romp through Tinseltown that never adheres to a particular mold, making it a rather tough sell but pleasantly offbeat feature, »

An insane red-band trailer has been released for director Joe Carnahan's awesome-looking new movie Stretch. Patrick Wilson stars in the film and plays "a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back."
This dark and wacky comedic adventure will not be getting a theatrical release. It was just way too over-the-top and crazy for the studio, but the movie is currently available to watch on digital outlets and VOD. So if you want to watch it right now you can!
This latest trailer embraces the red-band label and includes violence, cussing, nudity, and other weird stuff. The wildly fast-paced film co-stars Norman Reedus, Jessica Alba, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, Ray Liotta, Mindy Robinson, Randy Couture, and David Hasselhoff. »

I don't know who is behind the marketing for Joe Carnahan's Stretch, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon, but they are definitely going all out and it doesn't appear to be Universal is going anywhere near it. That said, they have definitely captured the attention of the Internet, or, well, at least me as I'm something of a Carnahan fan and this new red band trailer would seem to either convince you to see the movie or keep you very far away from it. amz asin="B00O8O3W4U" size="small"Clearly the intent with Stretch is to see just how crazy and debaucherous things can get on the big screen as Patrick Wilson plays a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve himself of some debt when he starts working for a billionaire (Chris Pine) who makes his life hell. That, however, only seems to be »

The opening scene of Joe Carnahan’s latest shows a man getting jettisoned from the driver’s side window of his car in a crash, hitting the ground rolling and ending up sitting on the street with barely a scratch. That’s how this film begins, and it only gets zanier from there. The plot follows a down on his luck limo driver who goes by Stretch (Patrick Wilson) who finds out he has to pay $6,000 of gambling debts by midnight. Roger Karos (Chris Pine), a deranged billionaire offers to cover his debt if he drives him around for the evening, which gets more hellish with each passing minute.
Patrick Wilson plays the title character like a punching bag with a forced smile. He’s the type of guy who has always had bad luck, and is simply used to »

Jon Stewart as “Meet the Press” host would’ve been a terrible idea — unless he did “The Daily Show” on Sunday Jon Stewart is "a supplement, a commentator, throwing stinkbombs in from the outside,” says James Poniewozik. "To put him in that Beltway-priest, neutral-insider role would have been a joke, and not the ha-ha kind. On the other hand, if NBC were hiring Stewart to replace not just David Gregory, but the idea of 'Meet the Press' itself–to create, if not a copy, 'The Daily Show,' a seriously funny issues show with a point of view and an adversarial attitude that would roast not just the guests, but the culture of Washington–now that could have been something.” Plus: Jon Stewart is a terrible interviewer who would’ve been a terrible host, Stewart’s agent wouldn’t deny the "Meet the Press' report, and »

Even though it's going to straight to VOD, Joe Carnahan's "Stretch" seems to be getting a promotional campaign worthy of a theatrical release. Clips for the R-rated gonzo movie have been dumped online left and right, like this here red band trailer. Led by Patrick Wilson and featuring an ensemble including Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, David Hasselhoff, Brooklyn Decker and Ray Liotta, the story follows a harried limo driver who spends one wild night driving around a crazy client in the hopes the high priced gig will help him pay off some gambling debts. But of course, he'll cross paths with no shortage of weirdos including midgets, nymphomaniacs, strippers and....well, you get the idea. "Stretch" hit VOD this week. Watch below. »

The first episode of The Secret World of Alex Mack premiered Oct. 8, 1994. The show starred Larisa Oleynik as a Californian teenager who gains superhuman powers after being doused in a chemical called Gc-161. The show (which also features a young Jessica Alba), replaced Clarissa Explains It All in Nickelodeon's Snick Saturday night programming block, and ran for four seasons, before Oleynik, who described herself as "burnt out" by the show's success, walked away from a fifth season offer, a feature film and - in her words - "a ton of money." But let's not dwell on what might have been. »
Joe Carnahan has carved out an eclectic career for himself as a director. Three years ago he made his best film to date with the emotional and tense dram, The Grey. That film followed The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces, movies that are best described as fun. One was an unabashedly over-the-top popcorn the movie, the other a wacky R-rated shoot’m up, and the voice that gave us those two films has now returned with Stretch. Happily though, this is a more consistent and successful blend of sorrow and anarchy. Kevin Stretch (Patrick Wilson) moved to Los Angeles with the dreams of becoming an actor, but instead found himself behind the wheel of a stretch limousine. After overcoming his substance abuse and gambling problem, Stretch is at his lowest point — he has zero money to his name, a job he’s unhappy with, an ex-girlfriend (Brooklyn Decker) he can’t get over and the ghost of his »
