Warner Bros. has released a new Horrible Bosses 2 trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel.  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles from the first film, and this time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom.  This trailer isn’t quite as funny as the previous one, but there are still some standout jokes thanks to the main trio.  While comedy follow-ups are incredibly hard to pull off, the chemistry of Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis is fantastically infectious so I’m optimistic here.  Moreover, between this and Stretch, Pine is proving himself to be quite the comedic talent.

Watch the new theatrical Horrible Bosses 2 trailer after the jump.  Directed by Sean Anders, the film also stars Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin SpaceyHorrible Bosses 2 opens in theaters on November 26th.

STRETCH Trailer: Patrick Wilson Needs $6,000 By Midnight in Joe Carnahan’s Colorful New Film

by     Posted 5 days ago

Since director Joe Carnahan decided to take the marketing into this own hands, we’ve already seen a number of clips, images, and even a gag reel from his new film Stretch.  However, the first official Stretch trailer has now been released online, giving us a better handle on the plot for this colorful, insane-looking action comedy.  The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (James Badge Dale).  As we can see from this trailer, he comes across a number of unusual characters during his service, and things appear to get weirder and weirder as the night wears on.  I loved the introspective nature of Carnahan’s The Grey, but it’s nice to see that he’s still able to have fun with things like this and The Blacklist, and Stretch certainly appears to be a very wild ride indeed.

Watch the Stretch trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, Norman Reedus, Ray Liotta, Shaun Toub, Brooklyn Decker, and David HasselhoffStretch will be available on iTunes and Amazon on October 7th and on VOD on October 14th.

3 New STRETCH Clips Remind Patrick Wilson not to Hassle The Hoff

As I’ve said on multiple occasions, I’m a big Joe Carnahan fan, and I can’t wait to see his latest film, Stretch.  The movie stars Patrick Wilson as “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back.”  These three clips show off the film’s delightful lunacy, and I’m reminded of how well he utilized Chris Pine in Smokin’ Aces by getting him to play against type.  But the real scene-stealer could be David Hasselhoff, who, as we can see from one of these clips, does not like to be kept waiting.

Hit the jump to check out the Stretch clips.  The film also stars Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Norman Reedus, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta, and Shaun Toub.  Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon.

Chris Pine Needs Wilford Brimley’s Mustache in Nutty STRETCH Gag Reel

Director Joe Carnahan’s action-comedy Stretch was one of my most anticipated films of this spring, so I was quite disappointed when Universal decided to abandon the film’s theatrical release plan at the last minute.  Thankfully, the movie is finally set to be released VOD next month, and Carnahan has been doing a fantastic job of handling the film’s marketing duties by himself.  The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (James Badge Dale).  We’ve already seen some images and clips that show off the batshit insanity that we can expect from the movie itself, and today Carnahan released a Stretch gag reel that proves Chris Pine is an untapped well of comedic gold.  The guy is funny, and his character looks to be positively off-the-rails.  Give me this movie now, please.

We got our first glimpse at images from Joe Carnahan’s newest film Stretch just about a week ago, but the movie’s social media campaign has been going bonkers since then.  There have been plenty of alt-posters, behind-the-scenes images revealing cameos and guest stars, and lots of general blanket insanity.  Now, the first clips from the film are making their way online, and boy are they delightfully strange.  They’re short, but efficient in their weirdness and humor, plus you get your first look at star Patrick Wilson and co-stars Chris Pine, Norman Reedus, and Ed Helms.  It’s a great introduction to what’s sure to be a balls-to-the-wall crazy film.

The sooner Star Trek 3 happens, the better.  Why?  Because we need another one of these blooper reels.  Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch and co. get pretty serious in the film, but on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness there’s jokes, line flubs and even some pretty impressive dance moves.

The blooper reel is actually part of Star Trek: The Compendium, a four-disc Blu-ray box set that comes with the original two-disc Star Trek Blu-ray, the two-disc Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray special edition and loads of extras (click here to order it on Amazon).  Hit the jump to check out that Star Trek Into Darkness blooper reel as well as a full list of bonus features for Star Trek: The Compendium.

We first found out that Chris Pine was in talks for Disney’s The Finest Hours back in April, but now the project has its core cast and is set to begin production this month in Quincy and Chatham, Massachusetts.  The screenplay comes from Academy Award nominees Paul Tamsay, Eric Johnson and Scott Silver and is based on the Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias book, The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Most Daring Sea Rescue, which recalls what happened when two oil tankers were pummeled by a vicious nor’easter in the winter of 1952 and the Coast Guard was dispatched to rescue them.  Hit the jump for more.

INTO THE WOODS Trailer: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, and More Get Musical

by     Posted 61 days ago

Disney has released the first trailer for the fairy tale musical Into the Woods, directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago).  James Corden and Emily Blunt star as a couple who encounter Brothers Grimm characters while on a quest to reverse a curse that keeps them from starting a family.  This is very much a teaser trailer, which unfortunately means we don’t get to hear any of the songs just yet; this trailer is very much focused on introducing the cast and the magical world.  Marshall’s first foray into tentpole moviemaking with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a bit of a misfire, but Into the Woods looks to combine the large-canvas sensibilities of that film with the theatrical quality of Chicago.  He’s assembled an incredibly talented cast to bring Into the Woods to fruition, so if he can deliver from a directorial standpoint (and if the songs turn out well), we could be in for something quite special.

Into the Woods stars Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, and Christine Baranski, and opens December 25th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Into the Woods trailer, and click here to see the recently released images.

New INTO THE WOODS Images Reveal Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella, Chris Pine’s Prince Charming, and Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf

A batch of new Into the Woods images from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) feature film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical has landed online.  The Disney production stars James Corden (Begin Again) and Emily Blunt as a Baker and his wife who venture into the woods to confront the witch responsible for putting a curse on the childless couple.  Along the way, they run into a number of familiar fairy tale characters.  Today’s new images reveal quite a few of these, including Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and Chris Pine as Prince Charming.  It’s an absolutely stacked cast, and Marshall had everyone sing live on set, so it should be interesting to see the final result come together this Christmas.  With these images debuting today, I imagine a first trailer is right around the corner.

A Robot Chicken clip surfaced earlier this week that lampoons Star Trek: The Next Genration, asking who exactly takes over when the Enterprise crew we know and love goes to bed.  The captain of the night crew has his own twist on the classic introduction:

“Space, the final frontier.  These are the 11pm-7am voyages of the Enterprise’s night crew.  It’s continuing mission is to party.”

If you are more of a Star Trek fan than a Robot Chicken lover, you will appreciate that Patrick Stewart and Chris Pine get in on the fun as part of the voice cast.  Watch the Star Trek Robot Chicken clip after the jump.

New Line has released the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That’s My Boy).  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return to start a new business in the sequel.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, “the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company.”  I somehow missed the first installment from Seth Gordon back in 2011, but this new trailer makes me want to remedy that ASAP.  It’s also got the best use of “Turn Down for What” since, well, DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s video.

Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in Horrible Bosses 2, scheduled for release on November 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Horrible Bosses 2 trailer.

TOP 5: 2014 Oscar Nods, ANT-MAN and DOCTOR STRANGE, JACK RYAN, DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S “THE FANTASTIC FOUR”, Sundance 2014

by     Posted 255 days ago

collider-top-5-slice

Every so often a film comes along that plays pitch perfect to your sensibilities and hits you with such pinpoint accuracy that it reaffirms your love of the medium. That’s what Spike Jonze‘s Her did for me last weekend. It’s the type of movie I wish I had the talent to make and, at the same time, one that I’m thankful anyone had the talent and passion to make. It’s a film that says so much about our desire to connect, to love and to feel loved, that evaluating it piece by piece (acting, editing, sound, cinematography, mise-en-scène, etc.) almost cheapens its value as a whole. Above all, though, it refuses to be just one thing and therein lies its greatest achievement. It’s comedy soaked in melancholy, drama with hints of playfulness, quirk wrapped in genuine romance, and heartbreaking sincerity set within the most plastic of relationships. Her is an instant classic.

In case my subtlety has left you uncertain about my feelings on Her, feel free to e-mail me at colliderjason@gmail.com and I’ll try to be more on the nose about how damn great it is. In the meantime, this week’s Top 5 features the newly announced 2014 Oscar nominations, Marvel casting news/rumors regarding Ant-Man and Doctor Strange, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit interviews with Chris Pine and more, the trailer for the seemingly interesting doc DOOMED! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s “The Fantastic Four”, and all of our Sundance 2014 coverage to date. Click on to find a brief recap and link to each of the above.
