Logan Lucky

While there are a lot of people invested in whether or not Daniel Craig returns to play James Bond, I’d frankly rather see him continuing to go out on a limb like he does in Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky.” With bleached hair, a Southern accent, and playing a character named Joe Bang, the movie couldn’t be further from the very serious world of 007, and if this clip is anything to by, “Logan Lucky” is going to be a hoot to watch.

There’s a lot of excitement this week about Edgar Wright‘s “Baby Driver,” not only because it’s a pure blast of popcorn entertainment, but because it’s the rare original film in a season of franchises. And before the summer is out, another movie is coming from an auteur director working with a great cast, and promising to deliver a wild ride: Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky.” Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, Hilary Swank, and Daniel Craig star in the heist flick, that centers around two brothers who attempt to pull off a robbery during the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Steven Soderbergh comes out of retirement and returns to the heist-film genre with the debut trailer for “Logan Lucky.” The film stars Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as the Logan Brothers who attempt an elaborate NASCAR robbery. “It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie,” Soderbergh said about screenwriter Rebecca Blunt’s script, “Nobody dresses nice. Nobody has nice stuff. They have no money. Continue reading Steven Soderbergh Can’t Resist The Heist In First Trailer For ‘Logan Lucky’ at The Playlist.

While Steven Soderbergh is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the type of filmmaker he would like to be – causing him to move suddenly and irregularly between blockbuster, independent, and micro-budget projects – the one consistent throughout his career has been his knack for films about criminals. From the “Ocean’s 11” franchise to his underseen adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s “Out of Sight,” Soderbergh is arguably at his best when making films about people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

We’re less than a month away from the summer movie season, although you would likely think otherwise if you’ve been to a theater near you lately. With hot titles like “Logan,” “Ghost in the Shell,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Power Rangers,” “Life,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and, err, “CHIPS” all playing in cinemas near you, it can be hard to differentiate between the sizzling summer selections and the ones that now play at seemingly any point in time of the year, no matter the season.

It feels like spring is the best time to be a cinema lover: the Oscars and all the attendant politicking and campaigning are in the rearview mirror and the noisy blockbuster summer has not yet kicked into gear. In this mood of thankfulness, our thoughts tend to turn to Cannes aka Cinephile Christmas in May, as we start to wonder which of our Most Anticipated 2017 titles might show up on the Croisette. So while it’s still a way off, seeing as anticipation is almost as enjoyable as the festival itself, we’re bringing you this early list of the films we hope most will make it into the selection this year. Continue reading 21 Films We Hope To See In The Cannes 2017 Lineup at The Playlist.

Steven Soderbergh is one of those directors who can pretty much work with anyone he wants, and so when it came to cast up his “return to filmmaking” with “Logan Lucky,” he was spoiled rotten. Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Daniel Craig, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid, and Brian Gleeson star in the movie that will follow brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan, who try to reverse a family curse, and set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
