Hold on tight as new trailer for Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver zooms in

2 June 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

With only a few weeks to go before it is unleashed across the globe, Sony has released a brand new trailer for Edgar Wright’s car-chase comedy-thriller Baby Driver, which you can view in the player below!

Marking Wright’s first film since 2013’s The World’s End, Baby Driver sees the director back across the pond to make his 2nd American-based film after Scott Pilgrim vs The World in 2010. Ansel Elgort (The Fault in our Stars, Divergent) stars as Baby, a young talented getaway driver who is driving to pay off a substantial debt to a well-renowned crime boss (Kevin Spacey). After another job ends and he gets closer to paying off his debt, Baby meets local waitress Debora (Lily James) and sparks fly, so much so that he envisages a life away from crime with her.

Reviews for the film so far have been stellar »

Newswire: Jay Z to produce movie version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights

1 March 2017 5:51 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Back before Hamilton and his brief cameo in Seeso’s My Brother, My Brother And Me show, Lin-Manual Miranda was the man behind the hit Broadway show In The Heights. Back in June, we reported that the Weinstein Company was developing a movie adaptation of that musical, with Jem And The HologramsJon M. Chu possibly set to direct, and now it looks like that project is actually moving forward. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Z has just signed on to co-produce the film, so hopefully he’ll be able to make sure it doesn’t turn out as bad as Jem And The Holograms.

It sounds like that news is pretty fresh, though, so the actual In The Heights movie is probably still fairly far off.

Will ‘Get Out’ Make Blumhouse the Pixar of Horror Filmmakers?

26 February 2017 1:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Get Out,” the low-budget horror hit that dominated the weekend box office, proves that it pays to be fiscally prudent and creatively risky. The story of a black man who finds himself preyed upon by liberal white suburbanites is a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” for our racially polarized time. It’s a film that uses scares as social commentary.

Writer and director Jordan Peele, previously best known for his work on Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele,” never expected a studio to greenlight his project. At a time of #blacklivesmatter and Trump, that kind of subversion just seemed too hot to handle.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Peele said that when he told producers that he had a cool pitch, he would always add, “The caveat is: No one will make this movie.’” Most studios would greet any non-superhero related proposal these days with a hard pass, »

Get Out Producer Jason Blum on Jordan Peele’s Directorial Debut

23 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

There are few producers who have had the overwhelming success of Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions from their early days turning Oren Peli’s low-budget Paranormal Activity into a hugely profitable franchise, followed by the equally successful Insidious and The Purge movies. Jason Blum also has an Oscar nomination notched onto his career belt for his involvement in getting Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-nominated Whiplash made, and Blumhouse were involved with bringing Jem and the Holograms to movie theaters. (Sorry, but I actually kind of liked it, even though it bombed… big time.)

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out will be the third time Blumhouse has worked with an actor making their transition into directing, as Jason Blum handled the same duties on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and Leigh Whannell’s Insidious: Chapter 3 a few years back.

Get Out is a very different movie in which Daniel Kaluuya »

Poster and trailer for 1 Mile to You starring Billy Crudup, Graham Rogers and Liana Liberato

22 February 2017 11:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gravitas Ventures has released a poster and trailer Leif Tilden’s upcoming romantic drama 1 Mile to You. Based on Jeremy Jackson’s novel Life at These Speeds, the film stars Billy Crudup, Graham Rogers, Liana Liberato, Stefanie Scott, Melanie Lynskey, Peter Coyote, and Tim Roth; take a look below…

When a teenager (Graham Rogers, “Quantico”) loses his once-in-a-lifetime girlfriend (Stefanie Scott, “Jem and the Holograms”) in a tragic accident, he finds that running keeps him connected to her during his ‘runner’s high’ moments. Chasing her memory drives him to run faster, and to win for his new coach (Billy Crudup, “20th Century Women”). Before long, however, his newfound notoriety attracts the attention of a whip-smart new girl (Liana Liberato, “If I Stay”) who is determined to find out what’s really going on inside him. Soon, he finds himself caught between keeping the past alive and making new memories in the present. »

Super Bowl 2017: Lady Gaga Makes High-Energy Case for a One-Woman Halftime Show

5 February 2017 5:33 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ga-ga, oh la la. Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show did not disappoint, unfurling appropriately enough after a startling first half that saw the Atlanta Falcons besting the New England Patriots 21-0, and that was hardly the only big surprise Super Bowl Li had up its (very, very sequined) sleeves.

In the weeks leading up to the big game — and its halftime spectacular — rumors persisted that Gaga would be suspended from the roof of Houston’s Nrg Stadium, that she would make a political statement, that she wouldn’t make a political statement, that she wouldn’t be joined by special guests and would play out the show entirely herself.

D.J. Caruso’s Original Pitch For G.I. Joe 3 Teed Up A Transformers Crossover

18 January 2017 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite G.I. Joe: Retaliation improving on its predecessor in every which way – story-wise and financially – Paramount’s gleefully over-the-top action franchise has since been placed on ice to accommodate Dwayne Johnson’s stacked schedule. xXx: Return of Xander Cage‘s D.J. Caruso was once in negotiations to helm a potential third installment in lieu of Jon M. Chu, who parted ways with the series to direct Jem and the Holograms at Blumhouse – and we all know how that one turned out.

But when G.I. Joe 3 was still in the mix two years ago, Caruso’s original pitch involved a crossover with Michael Bay’s Transformers, another of Paramount’s live-action juggernauts that will return later this year in the form of The Last Knight. Before touching base on that wildly ambitious concept, Caruso reflected on the moment when the G.I. Joe franchise ground to a temporary halt.

Destroy All Monsters: Jem And The Holograms, A Weird Experiment With Fan Engagement

4 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Let's start with a couple of caveats: 1) Jem and the Holograms, the 2015 adaptation of the Hasbro toy line and cartoon series directed by Jon M. Chu, is terrible; 2) I sort of adore it. I don't like it in any of the "underappreciated good movie" ways or even the "so bad it's good" ways. Honestly: Jem is atrocious filmmaking. It's miscast: Aubrey Peeples can carry most of her scenes but can't cry-act to save her life, and has to cry-act maybe ten times in the needlessly cry-acty motion picture. It's misconceived: the Misfits are left for a Nick Fury stinger in the end credits, leaving Jerrica's crushing self-identity issues as the film's only real "villain." It's also misguided: the film seems underwritten and...
