'Stretch' (2014) Movie Review

16 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Joe Carnahan's Stretch reminds me a lot of Michael Mann's Collateral. The operating word there being "reminds" as in this is the B-movie, bat-sh*t crazy, balls-to-the-wall red-headed step child of Collateral. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. For anyone the least bit familiar with Carnahan's work, Stretch will come as no surprise. Carnahan could easily be described as a director interested in masculinity. He's a "tough guy" cinema director, making the movie equivalent to beef jerky. I like beef jerky and I like Carnahan's films. I like the outlandish nature of his movies, the "anything can happen" narratives, and he consistently brings actors along for the ride that are just as willing and excited about starring in something crazy. While his films such as Narc and The Grey show he can also delve competently into serious cinema, his movies such as Smokin' Aces and »

It’s A Bad Day At The Office In New Banner Poster For Horrible Bosses 2

20 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In cinema, the comedy sequel is a peculiar beast. Unlike those found in other genres, follow-ups to those films that strike to tickle the funny bone are often less bigger, bolder and darker and more, well, disappointing.

Whether it’s continuations of Airplane, The Hangover or even the widely-derided Grown Ups, history has taught us that a comedy sequel can be a tough nut to crack. But come November, Sean Andres will look to avoid those pitfalls with Horrible Bosses 2 — the follow-up to 2011’s surprise ensemble hit.

Reuniting Nick, Dale and Kurt — aka the world’s unluckiest Average Joes — Horrible Bosses 2 will see the trio try to break out on their own by setting up a business. Of course, things don’t go quite according to plan after a conniving investor (played by Christoph Waltz) double crosses them. Joining Waltz as a newcomer is Chris Pine, while Kevin Spacey, »

Chris Pine's "Vampire Lawyer" Is the Most Ridiculous Thing You'll See All Day

20 October 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Chris Pine is getting into the Halloween spirit with the help of Funny or Die. He's the star of a new sketch in which he plays a vampire lawyer. The sketch itself is under 40 seconds long, but the credits are filled with outtakes and Pine making mockumentary-style comments about the making of the video. It's pretty dumb, but it's also pretty funny. Check it out, and take a look at all of Funny or Die's most ridiculous videos. Vampire Lawyer with Chris Pine from Chris Pine »

'Horrible Bosses 2' Banner Sets Up a Risky Kidnapping Scheme

20 October 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new Horrible Bosses 2 banner offers a look at the 7 main characters in the upcoming comedy sequel, setting up their place in the storyline. Meet the hustler, the brains, the boy toy, the sexpot, the money, the hotshot and the bait!

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles from the hit 2011 comedy Horrible Bosses. Only this time, they're working for themselves, which causes more complications than any boss ever could.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt have decide to become their own bosses by launching the Shower Buddy. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

Check out Jamie Foxx, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Christoph Waltz, »

Stretch Review

19 October 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“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 »

New Posters from In The Heart Of The Sea, American Sniper, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, and More

16 October 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A collection of new posters for upcoming films has landed online.  Briefly: In the Heart of the Sea – The first trailer for Ron Howard's telling of the tragedy of the Whaleship Essex landed earlier today, and now we have one of my favorite posters of the year.  It's ominous without being overbearing.  The film opens March 13, 2015, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb – Meanwhile, we have a contestant in the running for worst poster of the year.  I don't know if this is an awful photoshop job or if everyone is supposed to look like a cardboard cutout.  The film opens December 19th, and stars Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Dan Stevens, Ben Kingsley, and as you can see from the poster, lots and lots of other people as well as a monkey with keys. »

Stretch | Review

10 October 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

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, »

Immature Audiences Are Encouraged To Watch The Hilarious Nsfw Trailer For Joe Carnahan’s Stretch

9 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The team behind Joe Carnahan’s action comedy Stretch are having a blast with a marketing approach that’s equally as esoteric as the movie’s content. Following on from a stream of clips, behind-the-scenes footage and the first trailer, treat yourself to a gander at the glorious red-band trailer. The normal MPAA titlecard has been scuppered in favour of a custom-made version you can see above. Beware, it’s Nsfw, or as the Stretch YouTube channel puts it: “Not appropriate for the office, depending on where you work, I guess…”

In the film, Patrick Wilson stars as a limo driver who’s up to his eyeballs in debt, so he begrudgingly takes a gig chauffeuring a wealthy chappie (Chris Pine) who turns out to be a trickier customer than he imagined. It looks like an absolute blast, cramming in a ton of one-liners, amped-up action and the charismatic Wilson. »

Red-Band Trailer for Joe Carnahan's Stretch Starring Patrick Wilson

9 October 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

An insane red-band trailer has been released for director Joe Carnahan's awesome-looking new movie StretchPatrick 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. »

This Trailer Starring Chris Pine, Patrick Wilson, and Ed Helms Is Insane

9 October 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Make sure no one is watching your computer, and tune in for the red-band trailer for Stretch. It's a bizarre adventure movie starring Patrick Wilson as a limo driver, Ed Helms as the thin-mustached ghost haunting him, and Chris Pine as . . . I don't even know what. This trailer is like a short tour of the debauchery that (apparently) happens late at night in Hollywood, and there's a lot of cursing, boobs, and just generally eyebrow-raising activities. In case you saw that awkward clip of Wilson and Brooklyn Decker filming a sex scene, this is the flick it's from. Of all the movie trailers you could watch today, this one is worth checking out, if only because this movie might live on in cult fan clubs for years to come. Stretch is out on VOD now. »

Watch: 'Stretch' Red Band Trailer Puts Its Tongue in Your Ear

9 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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.

Taking a job from Chris Pine’s eccentric billionaire, Wilson is in line for a big tip that will get his gun-toting bookie off his back. However, it isn’t going to be an easy ride. The new trailer plays up on the film’s more outrageous elements, cramming in as many colourful characters, swear-words and fake boobs as is possible in ninety seconds.

‘Stretch’ Is Joe Carnahan’s Most Bonkers, and Perhaps Most Personal Film Yet

8 October 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stretch

Directed by Joe Carnahan

Written by Joe Carnahan

2014, USA

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 »
