Activision has unveiled a new look at Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s upcoming Zombies Mode, which is due to arrive in tandem with the game’s maiden Dlc pack, Havoc, in January.

Featuring the likes of John Malkovich, Jon Bernthal, Rose McGowan and AliensBill Paxton (game over, man!), the fan favorite mode will up the ante by equipping the undead with exoskeletons similar to your own, thus levelling the post-apocalyptic playing field. The star-studded cast will take up arms as employees of the devious Atlas corporation, and are tasked with cleaning up the mess after a routine bomb unleashed a “freak show that no one has ever seen.”

Players will once again be split into fireteams of four in the survival mode, before having to defend a makeshift base from waves upon waves of the undead. This isn’t the first time that the Call of Duty franchise »

Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Begins Production

11 December 2014 11:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday last month, Samuel L. Jackson gave fans the first look at part of Quentin Tarantino's assembled cast of The Hateful Eight during a rehearsal session. Yesterday, the actor gave fans our first look at the set in Colorado as production got under way on this highly-anticipated revenge Western. Hopefully this will be just the first of several photos as production continues, but we'll have to wait and see.

We reported back in September that director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting The Hateful Eight on December 8, somewhere in southwestern Colorado. The Colorado state film commissioner David Zimmerman confirmed that "the whole movie's going to be shot here," with sets to be built on an existing ranch. Colorado awarded the production with a $5 million tax incentive to shoot in the state, which represents 20% of the film's Colorado budget. The project will be the first major motion »

Pulp Fiction 20th Anniversary Retrospective

5 December 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jules: “You know what they call a Quarter-Pounder with Cheese in Paris?”

1994. The year Justin Bieber and Harry Styles were born – luckily the world was not ready yet for those two (was it ever ready?) and instead, we had actual art like Pulp Fiction to lift us from the grave, like The Bride in Kill Bill Vol.2. Interestingly, much like The Bride Pulp Fiction had to fight through the suffocating dirt that went with making an independent film in the 90s. Before we delve further in to the humble beginnings of the iconic film, 1994 was the year Dumb And Dumber, The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, Interview With The Vampire and Natural Born Killers were released. Not a bad year for film you could say, certainly for a young kid growing up then. I must admit, I wasn’t totally aware of Pulp Fiction at that time, but »

Samuel L. Jackson Tweets Behind-the-Scenes Images from Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

23 November 2014 8:51 PM, PST | | See recent news »

What a difference a year makes.  At the beginning of 2014, Quentin Tarantino shelved The Hateful Eight after a draft of the script was leaked online.  But as the year has progressed, Tarantino has gone from suing over the leak to having a staged reading to casting and is now ready to film entirely in Colorado next month.  Samuel L. Jackson is once again reuniting with Tarantino, and tweeted a couple images from behind the scenes.  Admittedly, there’s nothing major here—no costumes or sets—but it is nice to see the assembled cast and have a reminder we’re getting a new Tarantino movie next year. Hit the jump to check out The Hateful Eight images.  The film also stars Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Channing Tatum, Demian Bichir, and Bruce DernThe Hateful Eight opens late 2015.

Quentin Tarantino planning retirement after two more movies

11 November 2014 10:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino suggests it's two more films, and then he'll move onto something else...

As he embarks on his eighth film as writer/director (nine, if you count Kill Bill as two separate movies), Quentin Tarantino has been chatting about his plans for retiring from films. Tarantino is set to start shooting his new western, The Hateful Eight, in the next month or two. The cast for the movie was locked down last week, with Channing Tatum and Jennifer Jason Leigh joining Tarantino returnees Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim, Roth, Michael Madsen and more.

In a talk at the American Film Market, however, Tarantino said that "I've got two more to go after this. I like that I will leave a ten film filmography", he said, adding that "it's not etched in stone, but that is the plan".

Tarantino, currently 51, called directing movies "a young »

Quentin Tarantino Says He Will Retire After Ten Films

11 November 2014 3:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I guess it is true. All good things must come to an end some day and it seems like that day is coming soon for Quentin Tarantino and the fans of his movies.

According to Deadline, the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained director is planning on retiring after he makes his tenth film (which means one more after his next one, The Hateful Eight).

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off…I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more,” the director said during an American Film Market panel. “I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard.”

More retirement talk from Quentin Tarantino, discusses his inspiration for The Hateful Eight

11 November 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of years ago, Quentin Tarantino suggested that he’d hang up his directing gloves after reaching ten films, stating that he didn’t want his filmography to suffer as he became an “old-man filmmaker”. Well, he’s now reiterated those thoughts during a Q&A at the American Film Market, where he was promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight.

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” said Tarantino (via Deadline). “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, »

Quentin Tarantino says he'll be retiring after his tenth film, which means one more film after "The Hateful Eight," his Western now officially starring Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins.
