The rereleased Quentin Tarantino-scripted romp remains as fresh as ever
A welcome theatrical rerelease for this deliciously pulpy 1993 romp that saw Tony Scott bringing a burnished visual sheen to an early Tarantino script. Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette are the Badlands-style lovers who head to California with a stash of stolen cocaine, but the show is stolen by Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken, whose “vendetta kinda mood” head-to-head became one of the most memorable sparrings of 1990s cinema. Infinitely preferable to Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers, this is the best film Quentin Tarantino never made.

Ten years ago right about now Reese & Joaquin took the stage in movie theaters with a full sung duet as June and Johnny Cash. Both were Oscar-nominated for their ringed fire as tempestuous country superstar marrieds with Reese going on to win in a strangely non competitive Best Actress year. His & Hers Oscar nominations for lively onscreen marriages aren't anything new of course but they also aren't dependable since one of the partners is often foregrounded while the other is window dressing or is equally brilliant but just not nominated.
But of the ten double nominees who did it best in the intervening years? (I included the divorced couples just to up the numbers). You decide. To make this more exciting, judge the performances Fused. Who wins your vote then? These are your ten options

Funkily off-topic conversations, Mexican stand-offs and other Tarantino tropes are all here in the violent thriller he scripted and Tony Scott directed in 1993
Quentin Tarantino’s excellent screenplay for his violent thriller True Romance (now on rerelease) was given a glossy, high-energy, if conventional treatment by Tony Scott in 1993, a year after Tarantino’s debut as a fully fledged writer-director with Reservoir Dogs. Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette play Clarence and Alabama, two sexy young lovers who hit the road with cocaine belonging to Alabama’s pimp.

After the duo perform a series of robberies, they attempt to win the respect of the mafia by targeting certain jury members.

Read More: Anne Thompson's Oscar Predictions With the recent announcements of both the Gotham Awards nominations and the British Independent Film Awards, it only seems appropriate for this week’s column to take on the granddaddy of independent film awards: Film Independent's Spirit Awards, which are celebrating their 31st anniversary this year. With nominations to be announced on November 24, the awards promise to (as always) be a surprising and at times unexpected representation of the year in American independent film. In the past two years there has been unprecedented crossover between the Oscars and the Spirits. "12 Years a Slave" and "Birdman" won both Best Feature at the Spirits and Best Picture at the Oscars, and seven of eight acting winners — Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong'o, Jared Leto, Patricia Arquette, Jk Simmons and Julianne Moore — took home prizes at both ceremonies (Michael Keaton and Eddie Redmayne split last »

Last November, Pixar made the announcement Toy Story fans had been waiting for, revealing that Toy Story 4 is finally happening. Today we have word that the studio has begun casting, with Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette entering talks to join the voice cast. The Wrap reports that Patricia Arquette will play a laid-back hippie mother in the animated sequel, although no further character details were given.
When Toy Story 3 was released in 2010, the studio revealed that would be the final feature-length movie in the series. The voice cast did reunite several times for a number of short films and animated TV specials such as Toy Story: Small Fry, Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation, Toy Story: Partysaurus Rex, Toy Story of Terror! and Toy Story That Time Forgot. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are reprising their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear, alongside Don Rickles as Mr. Potato »
While it’s a world away from Boyhood‘s coming-of-age story, Disney-Pixar has welcomed aboard oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette for Toy Story 4, who is now set to portray a brand new toy in the animated sequel.
Currently appearing in the sophomore season of CSI: Cyber, it’s unclear yet how prominent Arquette’s part will be in John Lasseter’s feature, though with a 2018 release in place, it’ll be some time yet before we learn more about the actress’ involvement. According to sources close to The Wrap, the role of a laid-back hippie mother is currently being pitched, which we assume Arquette is in line to fill.
Once slated for arrival in 2016, Toy Story 4 has already nailed down Tom Hanks and Tim Allen to reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear, respectively, while Don Rickles will once again voice the ever-grouchy and ever-loveable Mr. Potato Head. »

Coming off of what’s likely to be the best film of 2015, Cate Blanchett has now become attached to another highly-anticipated project: the next film from Boyhood and Before trilogy director Richard Linklater. According to The Wrap, the Carol actress is in talks to lead his adaptation of Maria Semple‘s novel Where’d You Go Bernadette. With a script adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, Fault in Our Stars), the story is narrated by the 15-year-old-daughter of an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Branch who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. There’s no word yet on when it might begin production, but with Annapurna Pictures re-teaming with Linklater after his upcoming Everybody Wants Some, hopefully it’s next year.

The Wrap reports that Academy Award winner Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) is in negotiations to join Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen returning to voice Woody the cowboy and space ranger Buzz Lightyear.
Arquette is supposedly voicing a laid back hippie mom according to a source close to the production. Pixar veteran John Lasseter is directing from a script written by the screenwriting team of Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, which Lasseter explains will be a love story between Woody the cowboy and Bo Peep (voiced by Annie Potts).
Disney has announced a June 15th, 2018 release date which will see the Pixar-animated feature competing against Warner Bros. Pictures “Godzilla” sequel and Universal Pictures “Jurassic World 2.” Arquette is currently starring in “CSI: Cyber” on CBS and will next be seen in the crime drama, “The Wannabe”, with Vincent Piazza.

There are those that believe Pixar should have called it quits on the Toy Story franchise after the Oscar winning third instalment, but seeing as that movie earned over $1 billion worldwide, you can’t blame the studio for not wanting to end things just yet (even on a high).

Disney/Pixar recently moved the release date of Toy Story 4 back to 2018, yet the production is still very much pressing ahead. John Lasseter is returning to direct the movie, with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen both expected back, to voice Woody and Buzz Lightyear respectively.
We now learn too that there's the role of a laid-back mother, described as something of a hippie. And Patricia Arquette is in talks to take on the role.
Toy Story 4 - as it's unlikely to ultimately be called - is scheduled for release on June 15th 2018. More as we hear it, »
With Toy Story 4 looking to continue the franchise, it looks like there's going to be a need for some new characters. That means it's time for new voices, and Patricia Arquette is the first new talent to be looking to come aboard. The Wrap broke the news that Arquette is in early negotiations to play a role very similar to that of her Academy Award winning performance in Boyhood. Her character in Toy Story 4 is described as a, "laid-back mom, who's described as a hippie," and that's about all that we know thus far. Taking this new detail into the mix with everything else we've learned over time, we're starting to wonder where this new mother fits into the picture. Considering that the Toy Story shorts thus far have been bringing back Bonnie and her mother each outing, it was assumed . but unconfirmed . that she would be coming »
TheWrap reports Patricia Arquette is in talks to voice a new character in Toy Story 4. Should the deal go through, the Oscar-winning actress would join returning stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen for what has been described as less a sequel and more a standalone romance between Woody and Bo Peep. Arquette, according to the trade's sources, would play "a laid-back mom who's described as a hippie," which is great because that means she should be totally chill with any toys running around her house and dating. Pixar's president Jim Morris had said earlier this year that the forthcoming fourth installment, penned by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, will show less interaction between toys and children. Still: Don't count out moms! Especially if Arquette can channel the toy-talking version of her Medium role. Okay, probably too weird, but that may or may not happen come June 15, 2018. Good luck, »

Patricia Arquette got the Academy’s stamp of approval earlier this year, picking up an Oscar for her phenomenal, decade-spanning work in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood.

The gender wage gap issue has finally come to the forefront of conversations in Hollywood. Thanks to Jennifer Lawrence's essay and Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech, everyone is talking about an issue that, frankly, has been allowed to endure for far too long. Jennifer Lawrence's recent essay really stuck a chord with Hollywood. She's definitely not the first woman to address the discrepancy in pay between actors and actresses, but something about her essay has catalyzed a lot of other women to speak out on this issue. When Oprah Winfrey was asked about Lawrence's comments on the CBS morning show she said, "I think it's a moment in time... I think the conversation has hit a critical moment." Recently, People Magazine asked Sharon Stone her thoughts on the gender pay gap and she shared that, "After 'Basic Instinct,' no one wanted to pay me. I remember »
