As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where thereâ€™s no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), itâ€™s the heart-racing, epic, action-drama that critics are calling â€œone of the best movies of this, or any, yearâ€ (Pete Hammond, Movieline).

Kenny Powers was once on top of the world. Now, spurned by the big leagues and humiliated in his own hometown, heâ€™s heading south of the border to lick his wounds and live the outlaw lifestyle. Danny McBride is Kenny Powers in an all-new season of the HBO hit comedy series Eastbound & Down. Danny McBride's Kenny Powers, the man with the magnificent mullet, returns for a second round of his politically incorrect HBO series. When his Tampa plans fall through, the baseball player-turned-gym teacher spends the next seven episodes killing time in Mexico (the shoot takes place in Puerto Rico). After his sidekick, Aaron (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Deep Roy), gives him the boot, he decides to get back in the game, so he joins a local team just as his biggest fan, Stevie (Steve Little), arrives in order to serve as his assistant. Stevie also breaks the news that Kenny's ex-girlfriend is off the market. Fortunately, Vida (Ana de la Reguera), a shapely nightclub singer, helps Kenny to forget his past, though she finds the team owner (Michael PeÃ±a) equally enticing. Unfortunately, Kenny's bad attitude threatens his relationship, his job, and even his friendship with the puppy dog-like Stevie. Just when his antics can't get more tiresome, Kenny reconnects with a long-lost relative (Don Johnson with scraggly extensions), who inspires him to stop running from his problems and face them head on. Then, when he makes peace with a former enemy (Adam Scott) and a major-league scout (Matthew McConaughey), it appears as if his fortunes are about to turn. As with the first season, producers Jody Hill and David Gordon Green handle directorial duties and play to writer-creator McBride's strengths, but the coke-snorting egotist won't be to all tastes. Like the fictional Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm--or real-life pitcher John Rocker--he's an equal-opportunity offender, but in a cruder context. And set to a hipper soundtrack, something that also distinguishes the feature-film work of Hill and Green. Oscar nominee J...

Academy Award(R)-winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, TRAINING DAY, 2001) gives a victorious performance in this stirring and uplifting film. REMEMBER THE TITANS is a rousing celebration of how a town torn apart by resentment, friction, and mistrust comes together in triumphant harmony. The year is 1971. After leading his team to 15 winning seasons, football coach Bill Yoast (Will Patton) is demoted and replaced by Herman Boone (Washington), tough, opinionated, and as different from the beloved Yoast as he could be. How these two men overcome their differences and turn a group of hostile young men into champions, plays out in a remarkable and triumphant story full of soul and spirit. You and your family will never forget the Titans. With only one major star (Denzel Washington), an appealing cast of fresh unknowns, and a winning emphasis of substance over self-indulgent style, Boaz Yakin's Remember the Titans is, like Rudy before it, a football movie that will be fondly remembered by anyone who sees it. Set in Alexandria, Virginia, in 1971, the fact-based story begins with the integration of black and white students at T. C. Williams High School. This effort to improve race relations is most keenly felt on the school's football team, the Titans, and bigoted tempers flare when a black head coach (Washington) is appointed and his victorious predecessor (Will Patton) reluctantly stays on as his assistant. It's affirmative action at its most potentially volatile, complicated by the mandate that the coach will be fired if he loses a single game in the Titans' 13-game season. The players represent a hotbed of racial tension, but as the team struggles toward unity and gridiron glory, Remember the Titans builds on several subplots and character dynamics to become an inspirational drama of Rocky-like proportions. Yakin--whose debut, Fresh, was one of the best independent films of the 1990s--understands the value of connecting small scenes to form a rich climactic payoff. Likewise, Washington provides a solid dramatic foun...
