Five of the Best Films at Cannes, Vanity Fair ‘Hell or High Water’ review

VanityFair.com: It’s finally time we made it official: Chris Pine, jewel-eyed Star Trek hunk and onetime romantic foil for Lindsay Lohan, is a fine actor. We saw that in last year’s Z for Zachariah, and we see it here again in the similarly Southern-tinged (or, in this case, Texan-tinged) crime drama Hell or High Water, in which Pine plays one half of a brother-brother bank-robbing duo with a flinty stare belying a manly goodness. His brother, the volatile, devil-may-care one required of these kinds of movies, is played with effective energy by Ben Foster, but it’s Pine, with his terse solidity, who really makes an impression. Well, Jeff Bridges does too, as a rascally (and kinda racist?) Texas ranger on the hunt for the brothers, who are trying to raise capital to save their family’s ranch. Starred Up director David Mackenzie helms with muscle and panache, in both bracing action scenes and quieter moments of introspection, all framed gorgeously by cinematographer Giles Nuttgens. Sicario writer Taylor Sheridan’s script is sometimes not quite as profound as it thinks it’s being, but it has a nice way with words, lacing a pulpy modern-day western with traces of loss and despair. Hell or High Water opens in the States in August, so if you’re looking for a summer flick that doesn’t involve the destruction of entire cities but still packs a punch, this is a good bet.

Chris Chosen as Honorary Starter for Indy 500

Actor Chris Pine, accustomed to warp speed in modern “Star Trek” films, will have a close-up view of Indy cars traveling 220 mph at this year’s Indianapolis 500.

Pine will serve as honorary starter for the 100th running of the race on May 29, IndyStar has confirmed through multiple sources.

Known for portraying Capt. James T. Kirk in two “Star Trek” movies, 35-year-old Pine will wave the green flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A third film in the series, “Star Trek Beyond,” is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 22.

Pine also will appear in a “Wonder Woman” film slated for release in 2017.

Other celebrities set to participate in pre-race festivities include Darius Rucker (“The Star-Spangled Banner”), Josh Kaufman (“Back Home Again in Indiana”), Roger Penske (pace car driver) and Keith Urban (riding as a passenger in Mario Andretti’s two-seat car driving ahead of the field).

Practice continues today at IMS. The session runs from noon to 6 p.m.

Qualifying is this weekend.
