Baby Driver’s Got The Beat!

Baby (ANSEL ELGORT, front right), Bats (JAMIE FOXX, front left), JD (LANNY JOON, back right), Eddie (FLEA BALZARY, back left) wait in the car in TriStar Pictures’ BABY DRIVER.

I can imagine the pitch for Baby Driver, ‘It’s a coming of age story about this young guy who’s the best getaway car driver ever – because he has tinnitus and listens to music to drown it out. When he falls in love with a diner waitress, he wants out.’

When you strip Baby Driver down to its most basic, that’s the essence of it. That’s what it comes down to – and it works beautifully.

Hum In The Drum International Trailer: Baby Driver!

Baby (ANSEL ELGORT, front right), Bats (JAMIE FOXX, front left), JD (LANNY JOON, back right), Eddie (FLEA BALZARY, back left) wait in the car in TriStar Pictures’ BABY DRIVER.

When Edgar Wright left Ant-Man over creative differences, he segued directly into Baby Driver – his long-gestating take on the ‘one last job’ crime flick.

Baby (Ansel Elgort) is the fresh-faced driver on jobs planned by the coolly ruthless Doc (Kevin Spacey). Each of Doc’s jobs involves a different crew – with Baby being the only constant.

Then Baby falls in love with a waitress named Debora (Lily James) and grudgingly takes one last job to fund getting away from it all (all being Doc).

Baby Driver opens on August 11th.

Danny Boyle’s T2 Trainspotting will arrive in select North American theaters on March 3, 2017 before platforming out beginning March, 10. The new trailer tries a bit too hard to echo the classic Trainspotting trailer of twenty years ago. Check it out after the break.

Billy Lynn and the other soldiers in Bravo Squad become heroes following a battle in Iraq and are brought home to do a prooganda tour.

As the tour culminates in a spectacular Thanksgiving Day halftime show, flashbacks show what actually happened in Iraq. They are in contrast to what the country thinks they are and the difference is staggering.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is directed by Ang Lee and stars newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy Lynn. It was shot at an ultra-high frame rate to create an entirely new digital experience to dramatize war.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk opens in New York and Los Angeles on Veteran’s/Remembrance Day, November 11th before opening wide on November 18th. Follow the link for the new trailer.

The Walk – A Charming Ascent into a Kind of Madness!

The Walk - Poised

On August 6th, 1974, Philippe Petit, a French high wire artist, hung a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center and walked it not once, not twice, but three-and-a-half times. The story of the famous walk was the subject of an Oscar®-winning documentary, Man on Wire.

The Walk tackles the subject somewhat more intimately. Based on Petit’s book, To Reach the Clouds, Robert Zemeckis’ film approaches the story from Petit’s point of view. It is both charming and terrifying (not a movie to see in IMAX if you have a fear of heights – the 3D is… intimidating).

Robert Zemeckis’ 3D/IMAX 3D Caper The Walk Wraps Production!

1271033 - THE WALK

Forty years ago today, a French tightrope artist named Philippe Petit walked from one World Trade Center tower to the other on an illegal wire. It was a caper worthy of Mission: Impossible and the subject of an award-winning documentary, Man on Wire. But neither Petit’s book, To Reach The Clouds, nor Man on Wire could do what Robert Zemeckis is about to do – put you up there with Petit in a 3D/IMAX 3D film.

It’s called The Walk and stars, among others, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (as Petit), Ben Kinglsey (Iron Man 3), James Badge Dale (Flight) and Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey). The Walk will premiere on October 5, 2015. Further details await just beyond the jump.
