The Little Film That Couldn't – Scenes From Stretch

Let's start the morning off with something a bit strange. The guy who did Smoking Aces and The A-Team, Joe Carnahan, made a new movie. The film is called Stretch and is the story of a debt-ridden chauffer (Patrick Wilson) who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire (Chris Pine) and as the night progresses their interaction leads to many dangerous encounters. The movie also has Jessica Alba, Brooklyn DeckerEd Helms, Norman Reedus, David Hasselhoff and Ray Liotta.

Now this movie was supposed to come out in March… it didn't as Universal Pictures decided to drop the film just prior to its release. Word is they didn't want to spend the $20 million to advertise it. The producer, Jason Blum, was given permission to shop it around but no one picked it up and it reverted back to Universal. Its slated now to be released on VOD next month. The film was made for under $5 million.

This has a feel of a film that will end up a cult classic… not saying it will, but I could see it happening.

Here are three good sized clips and four short ones to give you an idea of the movie. Be warned, this is not safe for work and may be offensive to some as there is language and a guy's naked butt. And there is David Hasselhoff.
