Baby Driver is in theaters now and getting exceptional reviews:

An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year. Read Full Review – Terri White of Empire

Will resonate most with audiences that skew young, hip, and, like its helmer and its hero (the latter played by baby-faced “The Fault in Our Stars” star Ansel Elgort), more than a little obsessive. Read Full ReviewPeter Debruge of Variety

This is the first thriller I’ve seen in a long time that feels handmade. Read Full Review – David Edelstein of Vulture

Eiza Gonzalez joins Baby Driver Cast

Eiza Gonzalez (Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) has recently joined the cast of Edgar Wright’s crime thriller “Baby Driver”.  The new flick also stars Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, and Lily James. Eric Feliner and Tim Bevan will produce along with Nira Park. Both MRC and TriStar back “Baby Driver” equally, with TriStar handling worldwide distribution.

The plot focuses on a highly skilled getaway driver who uses his own soundtrack to help pull off his near impossible stunts. After being tricked into working for a notorious crime boss, his skills are pushed to the ultimate taste when a fated heist threatens everything he knows and cares about.  Gonzalez will be playing Hamm’s on-screen girlfriend, who is also one of the bank robbers. Production is set to start in the middle of March this year.

 

How Die Antwoord Was Cast In Chappie

Die Antwoord Cast in Chappie

According to “Chappie” producer Simon Kinber, Die Antwoord “are their own unique, crazy, enthralling, entity”, and were responsible for bringing their own personality and branded look to the movie. This video gives us the background story on how Die Antwoord was cast in Chappie. Neill Blomkamp says, “Out of nowhere I had this idea that, that band raised one of these robots”.

Ninja tells us that they were “huge fans of Neill’s, so when he asked them it was a “complete freak out”.

“Chappie” will be in theaters March 6, starring Hugh Jackman, Sharlto Copley, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret, and Yolandi and Ninja from “Die Antwoord”.

Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’ Gets A Release Date

Chappie Poster Close up

March 6th is the day to mark on your busy calendar for the release of Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’. Neil Blomkamp, who has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of Africa’s most powerful celebrities, doesn’t have many films under his belt, but District 9 and Elysium’s success was enough to prove Blomkamp’s Chappie was the right choice for MRC’s next Sci fi project.

Chappie was co-written by Blomkamp alongside District 9 and Elysiums’s writer Terri Tatchell. The film is an expansion of his short film ‘Tetra Val’ (see video below) with a interesting plot that follows a robot named Chappie who is kidnapped by two South African gangsters and brought up into a strange and dysfunctional world. Fans are rooting on Blomkamp to extend his winning streak with this film and are also looking forward to the return of Sharito Copley as the voice of Chappie. The cast will also include Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, and South African rappers Ninja and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord as Chappie’s kidnappers.

Be sure to check out ‘Tetra Val’ to see the inspiration behind the movie.

Elysium Storyline

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station that is disguised as a massive floating city called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max Coburn (Matt Damon), a 29 year-old ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s mayor, Secretary Jessica Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Elysium will be in Theaters August 9th!
