Cars 3 - Extended Trailer


Former Piston Cup Champion Lightning McQueen was a hero in his day, but it seems in the last few years technology has improved so much that he is constantly being out-run by newer and more advanced models. His latest rival is the super-speedy newcomer Jackson Storm, whose arrogant attitude makes McQueen desperate to beat him once and for all. Naturally, he's being bugged constantly about his plans for retirement, but to him it only feels like yesterday that he was a rookie himself making waves in the racing world. It doesn't matter how many tricks he learns to up his game, however, he'll never be the racer he once was. But his friends are nonetheless determined to train him up to be the best he can be, led by the young and enthusiastic technician Cruz Ramirez. He might never be able to match Jackson's speed, but that doesn't mean he can't outsmart him on the track.

"Much Ado About Nothing" - Joss Whedon's Take On The Bard


Joss Whedon Nathan Fillion Clark Gregg

These days Joss Whedon is known as the clever writer/director behind Marvel’s giant, over-produced “Avengers” But before all that, he was known to fans as the mind behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the DIY viral sensation Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Much Ado About Nothing, Whedon’s present-day adaptation of the Shakesperean play, sees the director return to his roots with a film, which relies not on a huge budget and, admittedly, well-executed action scenes, but on sheer wit and goodwill. We see some familiar collaborators of Whedon’s – Clark Gregg, aka agent Phil Coulson, plays governer Leonato, while Nathan Fillion does a hilarious job as Constable Dogberry.

The film opens with the brave and accomplished officer Benedick (Alexis Denisof) arriving at the home of governor Leonato (Clark Gregg), whose daughter Hero (Jillian Morgese) soon comes into the sights of Benedick’s comrade, Claudio (Fran Kranz). Benedick himself is quite the ladies’ man, however he meets his match in Hero’s witty and willful cousin Beatrice. And, as the phrase “meets his match” usually bids, it doesn’t take long for the two to fall in love. It’s a classic Shakespearean tale, retold in Whedon’s incredibly appropriate style. What’s more, Whedon’s adaptation finds poetic resonance with many current issues. Modern society’s rampant abuse of technology, for example is satirized by way of the messengers delivering plot twists via iPhones instead of scrolls, and the occasional clever wordplay (“Forsooth! A Bluetooth!”). Whedon manages to take good ol’ Shakespeare, put him through the mill of his own humor and what comes out is, unsurprisingly, a brilliant, if low-key, adaptation.

Check out pictures from the premiere of Much Ado About Nothing here.

Much Ado About Nothing Review


Good

This new version of Shakespeare's romantic farce looks like it was shot on video in the filmmaker's house with his friends over the course of about two weeks, which is exactly the case. It's lively and funny, and occasionally also warm and emotional, but the uneven tone never quite comes together to bring out the passion in the characters. An enjoyable experiment, the film keeps us entertained but refuses to spring to life.

Set in present-day suburbia, the story opens as Don Pedro (Diamond) and his henchmen Benedick and Claudio (Denisof and Kranz) deliver rival gang leader Don John (Maher) to his mob boss brother Leonato (Gregg). A confirmed bachelor, Benedick continues his verbal sparring with Leonato's feisty love-rejecting daughter Beatrice (Acker), while Claudio seeks help in wooing her sweet cousin Hero (Morgese). But Leonato decides to have some fun here, tricking Benedick and Beatrice into falling in love with each other. Meanwhile, the imprisoned Don John is plotting to destroy his brother, while a bumbling detective (Fillion) tries to figure out what's up.

Filmmaker Whedon assembles his cast from actors he worked with in everything from Buffy to The Avengers, creating a loose, relaxed atmosphere that makes the film easy to watch, even though it's in black and white and is spoken in Shakespearean dialect. On the other hand, this kind of mutes the play's romantic highs and tragic lows, evening everything out into a gentle comedy of manners with slapstick touches. Part of the problem is that, if you're unfamiliar with these actors, it's not easy to tell them apart as they are dressed in identical black suits. But the cast is excellent, delivering the dialog with off-handed precision.
