Watch: Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Zosia Mamet & More Star In First Trailer For Todd Solondz’s ‘Wiener-Dog’

26 May 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cinematic universes usually go one of two ways, and we’re not talking about interconnected, Marvel-style variety. Quentin Tarantino’s movie universe is a pretty good example, replete with nods and connections to previous characters and films that never quite overshadow his stories. Other movie universes can get too self-satisfied —see some of Kevin Smith‘s lesser films. One filmmaker who […]

Fantaspoa 2016 Interview: Brian Trenchard-Smith On Turkey Shoot And Dead End Drive-in

25 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Fantaspoa’s tradition of paying homage to living legends of genre cinema, such as Lloyd Kaufman, Richard Stanley and Fabio Frizzi, continues in 2016 with a mini retrospective dedicated to fearless filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith, key figure of the so-called Ozploitation subgenre. In part thanks to the likes of Mark Hartley, director of the Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! documentary, and Quentin Tarantino, who dedicated a Kill Bill screening in Australia to Trenchard-Smith, new generations are learning about the importance of this crazy wave of Australian cinema, which even had a representative this year at the Academy Awards in the form of George Miller and his brilliant Mad Max: Fury Road. In conversation with Trenchard-Smith, this is what he had to say about...

Comedy Roasts That Took It Too Far

25 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Saying the words "Friar's Club" without scaring away millennials who only speak in memes. Making the celeb in the chair feel honored, but just humbled enough to not jump out a window. Showcasing TV-friendly material that has enough foul language to make Quentin Tarantino blush: The comedic roast walks a whole lot of fine lines -- it's just part of the delicate mix of sick burns, underhanded compliments, and unthinkable vocabulary that makes up the cocktail. But sometimes when you shake that cocktail, it explodes right in your face. Pause to remember five roasts that did just that, and had viewers wincing between the laughs all the way.

The 2015 Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber should've been a momentous occasion -- yeah, it's weird that the Biebs got roasted in the first place, but at least we can all laugh at »

Quiz: All About Michael Fassbender

23 May 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It's hard to believe that Michael Fassbender only broke onto the scene six short years ago.

We first noticed the Irish/German actor when he had a small but memorable role in Quentin Tarantino'sInglorious Basterds, and he's quickly become not only one of our favourites, but easily one of the best actors of his generation.

Besides working on small, art-house films like Fish Tank, Frank and Shame, Fassbender took over the role of one of our most famous comic book characters, Magneto in X-Men. This Friday we're going to see him turn to the dark side, to work with Oscar Isaac's villain Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse. While we anticipate the new film, test your knowledge on Michael Fassbender with this week's quiz!

Take the quiz below and see X-Men: Apocalypse in theatres on May 27th! Click here for tickets and showtimes. »

'Saturday Night Live': 'Dead Poets Society' Meets Tarantino in Bloody, Hilarious 'Farewell Mr. Bunting' Skit

22 May 2016 9:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Saturday Night Live" aired its season finale last night, with host (and former cast member) Fred Armisen helping conclude the show's 41st go-round. Easily the most talked-about skit was “Farewell Mr. Bunting,” a reimagining of "Dead Poets Society" as filtered through the pulpy sensibilities of Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez. Read More: 'Saturday Night Live' Review: Fred Armisen Sends Season 41 Out In High Style Bobby Moynihan kicks things off as the eponymous teacher's embittered replacement — the poetry-loving Mr. Bunting (originally called John Keating and played by Robin Williams, portrayed here by Armisen) has been fired due to his unorthodox methods, natch — who informs his saddened class that things are going to be different now. To drive the point home, one of them is forced to read aloud of poetry's many shortfallings ("when you read a poem, you should never feel...emotion") as Bunting packs his belongings.

10 Great Movies Made By Actor-Writer-Directors

20 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Being a good director is one thing. The ability to function as writer, director and actor all on the same film is about being on another level entirely. Not many attempt it: directors sometimes write and writers sometimes direct, but most filmmakers decline to step in front of the camera as well as call the shots behind it. And, those that do aren’t always particularly successful.

There are some actor-writer-directors, however, who can triple threat their way to making not just capable, but downright formidable movies. They’re a rare breed: a specialist in three very different art forms, who somehow have the skill and the patience to do all three at once.

More News From The Web

For this list, writer-directors who make cameos as actor don’t count, so Quentin Tarantino doesn’t get a pass here (though considering how poor of an actor he is, Qt »

Quentin Tarantino Documentary '21 Years' Will Go Behind the Scenes, Gets the Weinstein Treatment

20 May 2016 8:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Weinstein Company didn't exactly make a splash at Cannes this year, but it has compensated somewhat with an intriguing announcement during the festival: It has acquired worldwide rights (excluding French-speaking territories) to documentary "21 Years: Quentin Tarantino," from producer-director by Tara Wood. With Tarantino, Harvey and Bob Weinstein have enjoyed the closest thing the film industry has to a patron-artist relationship. They started working with Tarantino nearly 25 years ago on his first film "Reservoir Dogs" and have backed all his projects ever since.  Wood is turning to Tarantino in her doc series after "21 Years: Richard Linklater" (which was released by Gravitas Ventures) and is selling a third project at Cannes.  With access from the Weinsteins and their in-house filmmaker, Wood will apply her 21-year approach to Tarantino. She'll interview his collaborators, friends and fellow filmmakers about working and hanging with »

Watch Extensive Talks With ‘The Nice Guys,’ Plus Shane Black Analyzes a Scene, B-Roll, and More

20 May 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Finally returning to the crime comedy arena after over a decade, Shane Black‘s The Nice Guys is finally in theaters, and it’s one of the essential films of the summer. We said in our review, “Black’s signature mishmash of old-timey detective novel tradition, Gen-x glibness, affection for harried macho bonding, undercurrent of a social conscience, is joined here by something of a nod to the power of cinema. The Atlanta not-l.A. of The Nice Guys is a funhouse mirror reflecting the real world (past and present), Hollywood history (simultaneously its real history, its projection of its history, and the outside world’s perception of both), and cinema’s history as it relates to them.”

To celebrate the release we’ve gathered a number of extensive talks about the making of the film with Black, Ryan Gosling, and Russell Crowe. Along with that, there’s a video »

Dog Eat Dog review – Willem Dafoe is magnificently needy in Paul Schrader's tasty thriller

20 May 2016 3:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Adapted from Ed Bunker’s cult novel, Schrader’s thriller about three ex-cons is his best work in years – though he should probably have avoided casting himself

In 1992, Quentin Tarantino revealed his love for cult crime author Edward Bunker by casting him as Mr Blue in Reservoir Dogs; the former San Quentin prison inmate and reformed armed robber whose hardboiled genre fiction was unrivalled in its authenticity. Three years later, and benefitting from a colossal career-boost, Bunker published a new novel entitled Dog Eat Dog, a nod to Tarantino’s debut. Paul Schrader has now filmed it, shifting the scene from Los Angeles to Cleveland, and working from an adaptation by screenwriter Matthew Wilder.

It’s the right director for the right project and the result is Schrader’s best for years: a lairy, nasty, tasty crime thriller built on black-comic chaos. Dog Eat Dog isn’t perfect: the opening scene could have been cut, »

Cannes: Paul Schrader's 'Dog Eat Dog' Deserves a Buyer

20 May 2016 3:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If Paul Schrader came to Cannes seeking redemption with his latest film, Quinzaine closing entry "Dog Eat Dog," he got it.  The packed house applauded the lurid crime caper on Friday morning, where the writer-director faced questions about the dubious morality of ex-con anti-heroes (played by Schrader regulars Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe), who wreak havoc wherever they go.  Schrader’s been dealing with such issues since he wrote the script for Martin Scorsese’s "Taxi Driver," which won the Palme d’Or in Cannes 40 years ago. "From the first sequence on, I try to send the message that if you are taking this seriously, you’re in the wrong movie," Schrader told the crowd. "This is so unreal, such a lark, that it doesn’t pose any more threat than a Tom and Jerry cartoon." While the director enjoyed channeling the likes of Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Humphrey Bogart, »

Weinstein Company Buys Quentin Tarantino Documentary ’21 Years’

20 May 2016 1:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Weinstein Company has bought worldwide rights, excluding French-speaking territories, to the upcoming documentary “21 Years: Quentin Tarantino.”

The project is being produced and directed by Tara Wood. Harvey and Bob Weinstein began working with Tarantino nearly 25 years ago on “Reservoir Dogs” and have partnered with Tarantino on all of his projects since.

The movie was first unveiled in November at the American Film Market. It examines the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career and includes interviews with frequent collaborators, including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.

Wood also directed the documentary “21 Years: Richard Linklater.” Both films draw upon the idea that the first 21 years of work defines the career of an artist.
