The 2015 Telluride Film Festival slate is always officially announced the day before the annual Labor Day fest kicks off. Of course, the dirty little secret that anyone in Hollywood in the know pretty much already knows what major films are going to screen there. Plus, the premiere designations from both the Toronto and New York Film Festivals, which occur immediately afterward, usually give it a way. Telluride has now become the premiere showcase in the race for Best Picture. Six out of the last seven winners ("The Hurt Locker" being the lone exception) either premiered or screened in the picturesque Colorado town. Fox Searchlight's "Birdman" played there immediately following its Venice debut and "12 Years A Slave," "Argo," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" all premiered at Telluride. The sixth winner, "The Artist," was the toast of Cannes before heading to Telluride. Needless to say, if you're a betting man or »

Thirty years ago, Marty McFly was riding high with the smash hit Back To The Future, while Sylvester Stallone enjoyed his most successful year yet with the one-two punch of Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rocky IV. It was an era of family sci-fi and teen comedies and bullet-spraying action, where The Breakfast Club and Teen Wolf rubbed shoulders with Death Wish 3 and Commando. Then there were low-key dramas like Out Of Africa and The Color Purple, which were both awards magnets at the Oscars.
Away from all those big hits, 1985 saw the release of a wealth of less successful movies, some of which found a second life on the then-huge home video circuit. Here's our pick of 20 underappreciated films from the year of Rambo, »
Chicago – Actor Sam Eliott will make you smile. The distinctive voice, his famous mustache and his character presence in a film or TV show increases any potential in the production. He recently was in Chicago with director Paul Weitz, as they teamed up in the film “Grandma,” starring the incomparable Lily Tomlin.
“Grandma” has a very unique premise. Tomlin is the title character of Elle, who is visited by her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner). The girl is seeking an abortion, and her feminist poet grandmother seems like the right fellow traveler on her way to the procedure. Sam Elliott portrays Karl, Elle’s ex-husband – she left him for a same sex partner – who harbors a resentment toward circumstances in their relationship. The two meet along the way to the clinic, and the resentment boils to the surface.

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino's new interview at Vulture is entertaining, and that's because it is. He discusses "The Hateful Eight," perceptions about his career and influence, and his opinion of other filmmakers. He's especially keen on David O. Russell. Many Twitter users have said that the Q&A is filled with "truth bombs," and that's sort of true, but it's also filled with tired old biases disguised as brave stances, and one particular quote caused me to twinge in agitation and boredom. "I don’t know if we’re going to be talking about The Town or The Kids Are All Right or An Education 20 or 30 years from now. Notes on a Scandal is another one. Philomena. Half of these Cate Blanchett movies — they’re all just like these arty things. I’m not saying they’re bad movies, but I don’t think most of them have a shelf life. »

Quentin Tarantino can be counted on to take as long as he needs to finish a movie, and to hand in something longer than the two-hour industry norm when he absolutely has to five months from now--he is always questing for perfection. He did take some time out to do some advance PR and talks about finishing "The Hateful Eight," why he likes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Aaron Sorkin, Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell, what's wrong with "True Detective" and Cate Blanchett's "arty" movies, why he writes scripts by hand and a whole lot more in his (already) controversial Lane Brown interview. Herewith, some highlights: On Westerns: One thing that’s always been true is that there’s no real film genre that better reflects the values and the problems of a given decade than the Westerns made during that specific decade. The Westerns of the ’50s reflected Eisenhower »

A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »
Samuel L. Jackson’s Major Marquis Warren is featured on the most recent and final character poster for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. The rest of the film’s main cast has already received posters of their own, making this the seventh in the set. The others show Kurt Russell as John Ruth, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, Demian Bichir as Bob, Tim Roth as Oswaldo Mobray, Bruce Dern as General Sandy Smithers, Walton Goggins as Sheriff Chris Mannix and Michael Madsen as Joe Gage. See all of them, including Jackson’s, down below…
In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. »

In The Hateful Eight, bounty hunters try to find shelter during a blizzard but get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception.

As you fine ladies and gentlemen must all know by now (since I’ve pretty much hammered it into your heads), it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions in order to see what folks like myself think will happen this winter, but it’s a whole separate thing to actually know something about who and what will be in contention. To help out in that particular regard, I’m continuing my yearly ritual of running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what or who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls that the Academy might potentially take a shine to. Consider this a sort »

We’re more than halfway through August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is almost over. But there are always new trailers for me to watch and analyze. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at the teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight.
Premise: In post-Civil War Wyoming, eight strangers seek shelter in a haberdashery during a blizzard. But they soon get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Will they survive, and are they really who they say they are?
My take: Back in November 2013, Quentin Tarantino announced that his next film would be The Hateful Eight, his second Western after Django Unchained (2012). But in January 2014, after Tarantino had given copies of his first draft screenplay of the film to a few trusted colleagues, a copy of the script was leaked online. Tarantino was furious, filed a lawsuit against the gossip blog Gawker, »

Now that the visually stunning and typically violent first trailer for The Hateful Eight has been released, a batch of new posters for the upcoming western have arrived that complete Quentin Tarantino’s titular and dastardly crew of bounty hunters.
In recent weeks, The Weinstein Company has issued one-sheets featuring the likes of Bruce Dern’s The Confederate, along with Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh characters – who are on board to portray The Hangman and The Prisoner, respectively. Today’s new arrivals essentially round out the rest of the villainous ensemble, with Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Demian Bichir all getting a piece of the gunslinging action.

After debuting seven character posters for The Hateful Eight over the past few weeks, The Weinstein Company has rounded out the full collection. The studio debuted the one-sheet for Samuel L. Jackson's Major Marquis Warren, a.k.a. The Bounty Hunter earlier today. It remains to be seen if the studio will roll out one-sheets for the slew of supporting characters between now and the December 25 release, but, for now, at least we can see all of main The Hateful Eight posters right here.

Last week, the first poster from Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated second foray into the Western genre, The Hateful Eight, was released, and since it only featured Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh’s John Ruth and Daisy Domergue, it was clear more were on their way. Well, it’s taken a week, but the rest of the cast, namely Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, and Samuel L. Jackson, are all here, and have all been collected below for your viewing pleasure.

Tim Roth, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Walton Goggins are featured in new character posters for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight while Kurt Russell shares the limelight with Jennifer Jason Leigh on their own one-sheet for the Western. Weinstein has yet to reveal Samuel L. Jackson's character one-sheeet, and we haven't seen any footage of Channing Tatum as part of the hateful eight, so we can expect those sometime soon. Check out the six new movie posters with their character descriptions.

Scored by Ennio Morricone and set in a snowswept tavern in the Rockies, it features many Qt veterans butting heads as dark and dangerous characters.
Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed there are only six posters available currently, and that's because the one-sheet for Samuel L Jackson's ne'er-do-well - Major Marquis Warren, "The Bounty Hunter" - has not been released yet.
Wordy, wild and undeniably cool, the highly-anticipated character piece is set to hit select cinemas on Christmas Day 2015, and go wide on January 8, 2016, just in time for awards season.
