This week saw a bunch of films getting second, third and final trailers, making us that much more hyped for their release!

San Diego Comic-Con kicked off this week, which is probably the biggest time of year for movie news, announcements, trailers, and all of our favourite things. It's still early in the week, but so far we've seen a new poster for Wonder Woman, a clip from Trolls, a new red band trailer for Sausage Party and a new trailer for Oliver Stone's biopic Snowden. That's just the tip of the iceberg, however, as we have tons of new movie footage from this week to tide us over, until, »

New Hell or High Water trailer sees Chris Pine robbing banks for the greater goodNew Hell or High Water trailer sees Chris Pine robbing banks for the greater goodAmanda Wood7/19/2016 4:00:00 Pm

Chris Pine has been a busy man.

Between starring in one of the year’s biggest movies with Star Trek Beyond (which releases this week) he’s found time to also make Hell or High Water, a much smaller movie that takes place down here on Earth and releases later this summer.

A new trailer was released for the film, which stars Ben Foster and Chris Pine as struggling brothers who resort to bank robbing to stay afloat. Jeff Bridges and Gil Birmingham also star as the small-town Texas law enforcement that tries to take the brothers down.

Check out the first trailer below, and catch Hell or High Water in Cineplex theatres August 19th.

Coming Distractions: Chris Pine and Ben Foster think banks are bad in a new Hell Or High Water trailer

19 July 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Yesterday, a new trailer for the indulgent and nostalgic Western Magnificent Seven, based on a movie from 1960 based on a movie from 1954, dropped. Today, the modern Western Hell Or High Water fired back with a new trailer featuring its own band of outlaw brothers. In this case, though, they’re literally brothers. And they’re not cowboys so much as down-on-their-luck antiheroes going up against the modern-day bandits at the banks. Chris Pine plays Toby, a divorced father who wants a better life for his children, and Ben Foster stars as his ex-convict brother; faced with the foreclosure of their mother’s West Texas farm, they take justice into their own hands and rob the bank that robbed them. Or maybe they just wanted to make a withdrawal without having to bother with pesky Atm fees. In any case, two West Texas Rangers played by Gil Birmingham and ...

Watch: One More 'David and Goliath' Trailer for 'Hell or High Water'

18 July 2016 6:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Y'all been here for a while? Long enough to watch a bank getting robbed that has been robbing me for 30 years..." CBS Films has unveiled one more official trailer for David Mackenzie's modern western Hell or High Water, from the writer of Sicario and the director of Starred Up. Chris Pine and Ben Foster star as brothers who decide to rob a couple of banks in small towns in Texas. Close to retirement, the Texas Ranger who decides to hunt them down is Marcus, played by Jeff Bridges. The cast includes Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey, Kevin Rankin, Marin Ireland and Gil Birmingham. This is a helluva film and I highly recommend catching it in theaters. See it because Jeff Bridges is badass in it, see it because the script is outstanding, see it because David Mackenzie is a talented director. There's plenty of good reasons to see it. Here's »

New Trailer for David Mackenzie's 'Hell or High Water' Modern Western

30 June 2016 6:13 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Well if that ain't Texan, then I don't know what is..." CBS Films has released another great trailer for the modern western Hell or High Water, directed by David Mackenzie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. I saw the film there and it's surprisingly fantastic, with an outstanding script by Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario previously) that drives strong performances from the entire cast.

Close to retirement, the Texas Ranger who decides to hunt them down is Marcus, played by Jeff Bridges. The cast includes Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey, Kevin Rankin, Marin Ireland and Gil Birmingham.

Trailer: Jeff Bridges In "Hell or High Water"

29 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following raves for his prison drama "Starred Up" which helped break out Jack O'Connell, filmmaker David Mackenzie returns with the pulpy western "Hell Or High Water" which screened at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews and opens on August 12th in limited release before going wide on August 19th.

Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham star in the film about two brothers (Pine & Foster) who decide to rob the very bank that will be foreclosing on the family farm.

Hell Or High Water Review [Cannes 2016]

22 May 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taylor Sheridan has been on a hot streak lately when it comes to his screenplays. The actor-turned-writer received rave reviews for his intense and thought-provoking Sicario, which premiered at Cannes last year, and now he brings us his follow-up in the form of Hell or High Water, a feisty neo-western which has all the ingredients of a typical cops-and-robbers flick but surprisingly, also boasts a hefty amount of substance.

Rising British director David Mackenzie brings the same gritty energy here that he did to his acclaimed prison-drama Starred Up and does an effective job of making an unsettlingly violent and intelligent Western that fires on all cylinders.

On the surface, the story is a simple one. A desperate single father of two named Toby (Chris Pine) convinces his ex-con brother Tanner (Ben Foster) to help him rob a string of banks in order to pay off the mortgage to their »

[Cannes Review] Hell or High Water

16 May 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily from the Coen brothers and Cormac McCarthy, but it does so very well, thanks largely to a terrific script from Taylor Sheridan, the red-hot actor-turned-screenwriter who broke onto the scene last year with Sicario. It might usher in a new chapter of the Cambridge-born director’s career having come back strong in 2013 directing an inspired Jack O’Connell in Starred Up. Indeed, this relocation to the States should go some way to explaining an enjoyably plastic impression of West Texas, where T-bone steaks are served only medium rare and people say things like, “Sideways don’t wanna meet me. Unless it wants to find itself at the short end of a long street. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Hell or High Water’

16 May 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hell or High Water” is a thrillingly good movie — a crackerjack drama of crime, fear, and brotherly love set in a sun-roasted, deceptively sleepy West Texas that feels completely exotic for being so authentic. The film opens, as so many underworld sagas have, with a bank robbery: At a Texas Midlands branch in the middle of a flyspeck town, two guys in ski masks wave their guns around and grab the cash from behind the teller windows. One of them, it’s clear, is a wild boy who’s enjoying the robbery a little too much. As they race off in their getaway car, a sporty scuzz-mobile that seems to be advertising the fact that they’re crooks, we think we’re watching a pop genre movie about violent losers who are too reckless for their own good. But “Hell or High Water” settles into something quite different.

Official Trailer for Texas Drama 'Hell or High Water' with Jeff Bridges

12 May 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A story about the collision of the Old and New West." CBS Films has debuted a trailer for the drama Hell or High Water, the latest film from David Mackenzie (who last made one of my favorites - Starred Up). Hell or High Water is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this week, and will be out in Us theaters in just a few months. Ben Foster and Chris Pine star as two brothers who come together to rob a bank, but end up on the run being chased by Jeff Bridges as a relentless Texas Ranger. This definitely has the vibe of a western with some contemporary sensibilities. The full cast includes Katy Mixon, Kevin Rankin, Dale Dickey, Gil Birmingham, Marin Ireland and Melanie Papalia. This looks like solid - give it a watch. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for David Mackenzie's Hell or High Water, in high »

Teen Wolf Star Kelsey Asbille Plots Course For Wind River

25 April 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kelsey Asbille has plot course for Wind RiverTaylor Sheridan’s starry crime thriller that is currently shooting in Utah.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the Teen Wolf star joins an ensemble that already includes Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen in leading roles, flanked by The Walking Dead and Daredevil fan-favorite Jon Bernthal, Graham Greene, Julia Jones and Gil Birmingham.

Sheridan, meanwhile, takes point for his directorial debut after serving as screenwriter on Denis Villeneuve’s intense narcotics thriller, Sicario. Wind River represents a different kettle of fish, though maintains those core, thriller tenets.

Essentially, Sheridan’s feature places Olsen in the role of a rookie FBI agent who, after stumbling upon the death of a young girl, seeks help from a burned out veteran game tracker (Renner), who harbors a haunted past of his own that remains largely under wraps for the time being.

Together, the unlikely duo »

Jon Bernthal Boards Crime Thriller Wind River As Production Gets Underway

31 March 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fury and Daredevil star Jon Bernthal may have spent much of the past fortnight quelling rumors about a potential Marvel spinoff based on The Punisher, but there are other projects afoot for the actor, and Deadline is reporting that Bernthal has enlisted for Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut, Wind River.

Also starring fellow Avengers Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, not to mention Graham Greene along with Julia Jones and Gil Birmingham of Twilight fame, today’s casting tidbit marks a reunion for Bernthal with Sheridan, who penned Denis Villeneuve’s intense white-knuckle ride Sicario late last year.

Residing in the thriller genre, Wind River places Olsen in the role of a rookie FBI agent who, after investigating the death of a young girl, seeks the help of a local veteran (Renner). Shouldering a tragedy of his own, Renner’s haunted game tracker agrees to search for answers on a remote Native American reservation. »
