hit and run
Over 60 new pics from the Hit and Run premiere have been added to the site:
Recently, on the occasion when I might ponder the real-life relationship of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, my mind goes straight to the home video featured on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, in which Shepard (behind the camera) tells Bell that he’s borrowed a sloth for her as a surprise for her birthday. Bell is so overcome with emotion that she breaks down in tears. It’s funny and it gives us an adorable look into the life of the couple. The photos from Hit and Run, a movie that also happens to be directed by Shepard, paints a very different picture of the duo, who play an engaged couple in the movie. Think, less tearful and more occasionally-cuddly/occasionally-bloody. There’s also one that may not be safe for work, so scroll down with that in mind!
We saw Bell and Shepard on screen together in When in Rome, however Hit and Run has them playing an actual couple this time around. Shepard wrote the screenplay and directed alongside David Palmer. The film has Shepard and Bell playing an engaged couple who find themselves on an adventure when Shepard’s character Charlie escapes witness protection to take his fiancé to Los Angeles for a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Also among the cast, as you’ll see in some of the photos below, are MIchael Rosenbaum and Bradley Cooper.
Judging by his appearance and the gun in his hand, I’m going to go out on a limb and speculate that Cooper’s character is one of Charlie’s old criminal pals. He looks kind of like the pre-brain-boosted Eddie in Limitless. And then there’s the guy with the beverage and the no-clothes situation. No idea what’s going on there!
I’m less inclined to think Rosenbaum falls into the same category as Cooper, as he looks a bit nicer dressed. Then again, Cooper’s wearing Adidas pants, and Rosenbaum’s using a golf club for a weapon, so there is sort of an athletic theme going on there, right? Either way, good cast! Speaking of which, Ryan Hansen, Tom Arnold, Beau Bridges and Kristin Chenoweth are also set to appear in Hit and Run, which arrives in theaters August 24, 2012.
