U.S. audiences will be getting perhaps the best way to close out the summer, with a batch of festival and international hold-overs debuting in August. Not only is the long-delayed, acclaimed horror flick You’re Next landing, but alongside Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End (hitting the U.K. this month), Wong Kar-Wai‘s highly-anticipated The Grandmaster will be arriving in theaters.
Following a domestic teaser earlier this spring, the full-length version has now landed. The piece initially shows off the rain-filled fight scenes we’ve seen teased since marketing began years ago, but then segues into some new setpieces, involving more stunts and even a train.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
