Everybody Wants Some

Collide This spring's releases are looking like a Relativity Media fire sale, with titles that were left in limbo by the company's bankruptcy finally making it to theaters via other means. This one is a crime/suspense drama that has Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley as big-time gangsters and Nicholas Hoult as a lower-level criminal caught between them. Result: a lot of desperate, pedal-to-the-metal driving of which even Jason Statham might approve, The automotively oriented flick was previously known as Autobahn, which is one of those titles you're going to have to change to get distribution in America, whether your distributor is in Chapter 11 or not. (PG-13)

Everybody Wants Some!! Richard Linklater's new comedy is kind of a successor to both Dazed and Confused and Boyhood, with an overwhelmed young hero arriving for his first day of college in 1980 and finding a whole crew of compatriots who say a lot by doing stuff that looks like not very much at all. Oh, and they're all members of the school's baseball team, which kind of makes this also a follow-up to Linklater's Bad News Bears remake if you want to get really technical. Expect more sublimely recalled art direction and music choices, including the Van Halen stomper that lends the film its title. (Of course, the best-ever use of "Everybody Wants Some!!" was in Savage Steve Holland's Better Off Dead. But not everybody gets to share the screen with dancing claymation hamburgers – something you should probably ask John Cusack about at next month's MegaCon, just to see how quickly that pretentious old poop changes the subject.)
