Kevin Bacon is Up To No Good in The First Trailer For Cop Car

CopCar_Poster(PCM) Yahoo! Movies debuted the first trailer for Focus World’s Cop Car, a crime thriller from director Jon Watts starring Kevin Bacon as a corrupt sheriff on the hunt for the two ten-year-olds who commandeered his vehicle.

After two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade, they do what any kid faced with that kind of an opportunity would do and decide to take it for a quick joyride around town, engaging in the kinds of shenanigans two young boys in the possession of a cop car, sirens, and guns would, with little regard for the consequences.

Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Kevin Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.

Currently rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a rating of 73%, Cop Car stars Shea Whigham (Silver Linings Playbook), Camryn Manheim (Scary Movie 3), Kevin Bacon (The Following), James Freedson-Jackson, and Hays Wellford (Strive) and is written and directed by Jon Watts (Clown) along with co-writer Christopher D. Ward (Robot & Frank, Clown).

Peter Debruge called Cop Car “B-movie gold” in his Variety review, writing: “Shot in crisp, atmospheric widescreen, “Cop Car” is just the sort of stripped-down exercise…that presents vaguely sadistic, dark-humored helmers with an opportunity to showcase their technique. For a second-time director, Watts demonstrates masterful control, pushing right up against the limits of what we can take (even non-parents will be rattled watching the boys mishandling loaded weapons), and yet, at every turn, the screenplay falls short of the picture’s full potential, missing opportunities that could have made this a classic.”

The New Point Break Trailer is All Kinds of Ridiculous

PointBreak_Poster(PCM) The second greatest line in the new trailer for director Ericson Core’s remake of Point Break is: “Do you have any idea how many people you’ve killed? How many laws you’ve broken?” Which is only second behind the answer to that very earnest question: “The only law that matters is gravity.”

Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the new trailer for Point Break earlier today, jam-packed with crazy stunts and questionable dialogue, causing the majority of people to question the need and demand for a remake of the 1991 action film starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.

Starring Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as FBI agent Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves in the original) and Édgar Ramírez (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Bodhi, the leader of an elite group of extreme athletes-turned-bank robbers (originally played by Patrick Swayze), Point Break is slated to open in 2D and 3D theaters nationwide this Christmas. 

Watch the trailer, after the official synopsis, and visit PointBreakMovie.com for more info.

In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.

The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.

The film stars Édgar Ramírez as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (Noah, The Departed), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Sahara, Gone in Sixty Seconds), under the direction of Ericson Core (Invincible).

Director Ericson Core, who served as director of photography on such films as Invincible, The Fast and the Furious and Payback, also serves as director of photography on Point Break. Core directed from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Law Abiding Citizen).

Renowned extreme athletes performing stunts in the film include surfers Laird Hamilton, Sebastian Zietz, Makua Rothman, Billy Kemper, Brian Keaulana, Ahanu Tson-dru, Ian Walsh, Laurie Towner, Dylan Longbottom, Albee Layer, Bruce Irons, Tikanui Smith and Tuhiti Humani; snowboarders Xavier De Le Rue, Louis Vito, Christian Haller, Lucas DeBari and Ralph Backstrom; skateboarders Bob Burnquist and Eric Koston; motorcyclists Riley Harper and Oakley Lehman; wingsuit stunt pilots Jon Devore, Julian Boulle, Noah Bahnson, Jhonathan Florez and Mike Swanson, and consultant Jeb Corliss; and free climber Chris Sharma, among others.

Making cameos in the film are DJs Steve Aoki, Seth Troxler and The Art Department, as well as sports commentator and TV host Sal Masekela.

Lawyer From Kenya Offers Livestock To Marry President Obama’s Daughter

Malia-Obama1

(PCM) A lawyer from Kenya by the name of Felix Kiprono is planning a visit to The States to ask for President Obama’s oldest daughter Malia’s hand in marriage. The lawyer is offering up livestock (50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats) to the President for his blessing of their union. 

Kiprono claims that he is in the process of drafting up a letter of intent for President Obama prior to his upcoming visit to The States this coming July. The letter requests that President Obama have Malia accompany Kiprono on his trip. It is Kiprono’s hope that the U.S. Embassy will pass his letter along to Obama, as he plans to hand it off to the U.S. Ambassador, who he claims to have interacted with several times. 

In his letter, Kiprono claims that Malia first caught his eye back in 2008 and he has refused to date anyone since he laid eyes on her. Kiprono’s age has not been revealed and his family is assisting him with “raising the bride price”, he also says that he will teach Malia how to milk a cow, cook ugali and prepare mursik like any other Kalenjin woman. 

Something tells us that Kiprono probably shouldn’t get his hopes up too high!  Best of luck buddy!

Spooky Charlie Charlie Challenge Takes Social Media By Storm

Charlie-Charlie-challenge

(PCM) The latest internet craze has teens attempting to summon a Mexican demon named Charlie by partaking the “Charlie, Charlie Challenge” using two pencils and some notebook paper. Using the hash tag #CharlieCharlieChallenge, teens are posting videos of their attempt at the game all over social media. 

To attempt to summon the demon, you place two pencils in the form of a cross on a sheet of paper, with 
“yes” and “no” written in four boxes. Then after asking “Charlie” a question, you await his response in the form of the pencil moving to either the “yes” or the “no” box on the paper. It is kind of like a simplified taken on the famous Ouija Board. 

According to many sources the game actually has absolutely nothing to do with Mexican folklore, as experts say that most Mexican “so-called” demons are American inventions. Either way, teens and superstitious types are getting incredibly freaked out by the game. 

 

Obviously, once the questions “Charlie, Charlie are you there?” and “Charlie, Charlie, do you want to play?” are asked, the pencil is surely going to move just based on the way that it is balanced, but that thought is not enough to keep teens from running screaming from the room. Part of this urban legend also says that if you stop playing before Charlie is ready than it can lead to hauntings and other other unpleasant happenings.  

The simplified #CharlieCharlieChallenge also appeared to be a take on the Mexican game “Six Pencils” which may be where the folklore aspect got a bit warped.
