What if instead of (mostly) dapper super thieves, the crew of “Ocean’s 11” was comprised of a bomb maker with a bad dye job, an out of work construction worker, a one-armed bartender, and at least one computer wiz who “knows all the Twitters?”


Well, that’s pretty much what director Steven Soderbergh and writer Rebecca Blunt’s “Logan Lucky,” seems to be about. The Logan brothers, played by Marine Corps veteran Adam Driver and former male stripper Channing Tatum, are a misfit pair from a poor family in West Virginia who come up with a plan to make some easy money: knocking off the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, during an Indy 600 race.

Fleshing out the core group is Daniel Craig, who swaps out his well-worn James Bond tux, for — honestly, I don’t even know how to describe his character. Uh, a grown-up Bart Simpson? He’s brought onto the crew by Tatum and Driver after they break him out of prison so he can then go blow shit up.

The trailer for “Logan Lucky” dropped on May 29, and the movie is set to hit theaters this summer. If you’re wondering what it’s about, aside from a chance for Hollywood A-lister’s to debut some bad accents and even worse stereotypes about provincial America, amid NASCAR-related shenanigans, check out the trailer:

ABOARD A U.S. MILITARY AIRCRAFT (Reuters) - Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said on Saturday he had not yet determined whether a border wall with Mexico was a military necessity or how much Pentagon money would be used.

Since the sequel to the 1986 action flick (and wildly successful Navy recruitment tool) Top Gun, was announced, there's been a lot of speculation on what Top Gun: Maverick will be about when it premieres in June 2020. While the plot is still relatively unclear, we know Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Naval aviator Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, and he'll be joined by a recognizable costar: The iconic F-14 Tomcat.

It looks like the old war plane will be coming out of retirement for more than just a cameo. A number of recently surfaced photos show an F-14 Tomcat aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt, alongside Cruise and members of the film's production crew, the Drive's Tyler Rogoway first reported earlier this week.
