It was just two weeks ago when Disney/Pixar dropped the latest trailer for “Cars 3,” but perhaps they looked at the tracking numbers and reception to the promo and decided they need to give the picture another boost. Yet another trailer has landed for the animated sequel, which goes gritty for its third installment. The new look at the movie brings some light to go along with dark, as the story follows retirement-ready Lightning McQueen as he takes on a new racer, and looks to make one last stand.

Brave” was actually pretty successful (and better than most people think), “The Good Dinosaur” has its defenders, but the “Cars” franchise is among adult animation fans, by some distance the least loved of all the Pixar movies. And rightly so: the 2006 original is sort of fun in places, while the second is a dull spy parody that leans far too heavily on Larry The Cable Guy’s Mater.

Ben Wheatley, no doubt, has a twisted sense of humor, just watch “High-Rise,” or, even, “Kill List” for further proof of his subtle dark comedy in the most twisted of situations. His latest film, “Free Fire,” is an ultra-violent action-comedy that features a barrage of bullets, zingy one liners and, yes, even a little bit of slapstick added to the mix.

I don’t think it’s spoiling anything to say that Sharlto Copley is the best part of Ben Wheatley‘s “Free Fire.” The only character in the film who seems to have no clue how a gunfight is supposed to work – in one scene in the film, he leads an increasingly anxious line of inquiry about how long it’ll take someone to bleed out – Copley’s character gives the South African actor a chance to dial his normally restrained screen presence (kidding) all the way to eleven.

By any reasonable expectation, “High-Rise” was poised to be Ben Wheatley’s crossover hit, the movie that would bring him mainstream attention after capturing the hearts of genre fans with “Kill List.” Certainly, Wheatley was in no hurry to curry favor with a wider audience, crafting movies like the pitch black comedy “Sightseers” and the wildly experimental “A Field In England” in the interim.

Is it time for an Armie Hammer-ssaince? Following his breakout turn in “The Social Network,” Armie Hammer seemed to get stuck in blockbusters that didn’t do him any favors including “Mirror Mirror,” “The Lone Ranger,” and “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” (though, the latter does have its fan). However, it seems a pivot back to smaller scale drama is serving him well. Continue reading Armie Hammer Reteams With Ben Wheatley For ‘Freakshift’ Starring Alicia Vikander at The Playlist.
