'Bad Country' trailer premiere: Contract killers, Neo-Nazis, and Bayou noir

Bad-Country-Matt-Dillon.jpg

If you want to bring down a crime ring, you have to start thinking like a criminal. Any good movie cop knows that, and Willem Dafoe’s Bud Carter is no exception.

In Bad Country, Bud Carter teams up with Matt Dillon’s Jesse Weiland, an incarcerated man with Aryan Brotherhood affiliations, to try to uncover a larger, more sinister organization plaguing the Bayou environs. “He’s the ticket to something big,” Bud tells his fellow cops. Bud needs Jesse, and Jesse just wants to get back to his wife (played by Amy Smart) and his kid, so he becomes an informant for the people who put him behind bars in the first place. There’s a hit list, a body count, and a number of exploding cars.

The 1983-set film is the directorial debut of Boondock Saints producer Chris Brinker, who died suddenly in February at the age of 42 while the movie, previously titled Whiskey Bay, was in post-production. Tom Berenger, Neal McDonough, and Christopher Denham also star.

With its mysterious plot, shifting allegiances, moody music, and mustachioed men with agendas, Bad Country looks like a fun tribute to late 70s and early 80s-era crime thrillers. The stakes are real, and so are the awesome Southern noir hats and pinstripe suits. Take a look at EW’s exclusive premiere of the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

Paul Walker wants to kiss Jerry Springer's ass in 'Pawn Shop Chronicles' -- NSFW VIDEO

Pawn Shop Chronicles should not be confused with Pawn Stars or Hardcore Pawn, two reality TV shows that delve into the hardscrabble lives of people who make their livelihoods wheeling and dealing others’ valuables. Pawn Shop Chronicles is a new movie from director Wayne Kramer (The Cooler) centered around a Southern pawn shop that attracts all sorts of extreme trouble. Paul Walker plays a white-supremacist meth-head with a confusing fondness for Jerry Springer, Brendan Fraser is the saddest Elvis impersonator, and Matt Dillon is a vengeful husband who tortures Elijah Wood with the gusto of Marathon Man and A Clockwork Orange, combined.

In this totally NSFW clip — and I can’t emphasize enough just how NSFW is it — there is mayhem, naked zombie women, and the most violent Mexican stand-off ever imagined that includes a clown armed with a bow-and-arrow.

To repeat, this teaser is completely NSFW. Watch it at your own peril and/or delight. READ FULL STORY

'Girl Most Likely' stars Kristen Wiig, Darren Criss in dark comedy -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Kristen Wiig is no stranger to playing characters that are a bit of a mess.

And in her new film full of family dysfunction, Girl Most Likely, Wiig gets a chance to find the humor in some darkly comic situations. Wiig portrays Imogene, a once-promising playwright who now is in the middle of a nervous breakdown. Imogene finds herself in the custody of her wacky estranged mother (Annette Bening) and back to living at her mom’s house — which now has a few extra people in it, including Matt Dillon as the mom’s boyfriend as well as a cute young boarder played by Darren Criss.

Kristen Wiig lets loose in 'Girl Most Likely' trailer

The new trailer for Kristen Wiig’s summer comedy puts us in a dysfunctional but hilarious family situation. A playwright who once seemed destined for great things, Wiig’s character, Imogene, finds herself in the midst of a breakdown. When her harebrained mother (Annette Bening) comes to the hospital and reluctantly assumes custody of her as she recovers, antics ensue in Girl Most Likely.

A cross-generational comedy (with a trailer soundtrack featuring a song from Now — Icona Pop’s “I Don’t Care” and a song from Then — Blondie’s “Dreaming”) about moving home again, it doesn’t look completely original — but it’s Wiig’s Bridesmaids‘s follow-up and is directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the duo that helmed American Splendor. Toss in some exciting faces — Darren Criss and Matt Dillon, who seems to be riffing off his There’s Something About Mary character —  and the movie looks like a lot of raucous find-yourself-again fun.

The movie opens July 19. For now, check out the trailer here. READ FULL STORY
