At the San Diego Comic-Con, Quentin Tarantino revealed that he's planning to begin filming his "The Hateful Eight" western early next year. And now, we have a poster for the movie. Check it out below. Plot: Set in snowy Wyoming a few years after the Civil War, the film focuses on the tension among a group of people trapped after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route. The group includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier and a female prisoner in a saloon. The possible cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell, and Bruce Dern. Poster: (click to enlarge) »
On Sunday, July 27, Quentin Tarantino confirmed at San Diego's Comic-Con that he is directing The Hateful Eight after all. As you can recall, he was so pissed off after the first draft of the script leaked some months ago that decided to shelve the project. Later, at Cannes, he confessed the wound has been healed, especially after the script live reading he shared in Los Angeles with such stars as Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell, and Bruce Dern. Now the Weinsteins and Tarantino have surprised everybody with the first poster of The Hateful Eight, which is bloody amazing and confirms two things: the western is going to be shoot in 70mm Super CinemaScope and is hitting cinemas in...

It’s probably safe to say we all loved Django Unchained. How could you not? The blood, the guts, the drama, the dodgy Australian accents – it was everything you could hope for in a Quentin Tarantino movie, and more besides. Then Qt himself dropped a bombshell: Django was more of a test subject. He was seeing if he could make a Western. And now that he’s learned he can – and an awesome one at that – he’s moving onto his first big frontier epic proper, in a film he calls The Hateful Eight. The Magnificent Seven’s angsty older brothers, maybe?
The film suffered a setback in January this year when the script got leaked onto the internet. Tarantino was, understandably, a little peeved at this (and by “a little peeved” we hope you know what we really mean, especially from a man so infamous for »

Well, that didn’t talk long. Fresh from announcing at the San Diego Comic-Con that he’d decided to move ahead with the project, the first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight has now made its way online…
The Hateful Eight is expected to go into production early next year, and while there’s been no official casting details it is assumed that Tarantino will stick with the cast of his live script reading from earlier in the year, which featured Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, Denis Menochet and Zoe Bell.

For months, pulp-loving audiences have gripped the edge of their seats, anxiously following the “Will he, won’t he” saga of Quentin Tarantino’s proposed new project, The Hateful Eight. Tomorrow, after much speculation, Tarantino will silence any doubts by premiering the film’s first official poster as an exclusive in the new issue of Empire Magazine.
The glorious poster shows a silhouetted horse-drawn stagecoach trampling over a snowy abyss, with an unsettling amount of blood trailing behind the carriage.
A 2015 release date is also confirmed on the poster, with distribution by The Weinstein Company. The movie will be filmed in 70mm Super Cinemascope, just as the director promised in a leaked script several months ago.
For those who have not been following, Tarantino’s screenplay was leaked online by bloggers in January. Notoriously sensitive to outsiders interfering with his vision, the director halted all production and said he would »

When Quentin Tarantino’s script for The Hateful Eight was leaked, the filmmaker was understandably furious (it had only been distributed to six people). He later stated that it would no longer be his next project and that while he might still make it in the future, he would likely just end up publishing it as a book.
It was revealed months ago that Tarantino was once again working on a movie version of The Hateful Eight, and he would confirm that news at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.
The script was very well received following a live reading in Los Angeles, and the cast which took part in that are all expected to return for The Hateful Eight movie as well. That includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, James Parks, Denis Ménochet, Dana Gourrier, Zoe Bell and James Remar. »

(Cbr) Make no mistake: Quentin Tarantino is not done with "The Hateful Eight." After a script leak briefly killed his interest in pursuing the Western, Tarantino has had a change of heart, and now plans to shoot "The Hateful Eight" in the near future. The "Kill Bill" and "Django Unchained" filmmaker confirmed the news during an appearance over the weekend at Comic-Con International in San Diego in the form of a sheepish admission: “Yeah, we’re going to be doing 'The Hateful Eight.'" The word comes from Empire, which attended the panel. At the time of the script leak, Tarantino was furious (“I gave it to six people,” he said. “It’s a betrayal.”), but now, he’s prepared to move on and make the film. It doesn’t hurt that a live reading of the "Hateful Eight" script in April went over so well. Those who performed »

Appearing at the San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming comic book crossover Django/Zorro from Dynamite Entertainment, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino confirmed that The Hateful Eight is going to move ahead, stating during the Q&A that: “Yes, we are going to be doing The Hateful Eight. All for you. We weren’t sure about it but I just decided now.”
Tarantino offered no further details on the status of the Western, which he put the breaks on earlier in the year following an online leak of the screenplay. Earlier this month, Kurt Russell claimed that The Hateful Eight would go into production early next year, and it is assumed that Tarantino will stick with the same cast as the live script reading he held back in April, which also featured Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, »

It’s Sunday and the final day of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the convention. After a crazy weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Godzilla 2, Skull Island, Mad Max: Fury Road, Crimson Peak, a ton of TV, and comic news, we’ve got one last big film announcement. As reported by Deadline from the Dynamite Comic’s panel, while promoting the Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is officially moving forward with his new western The Hateful Eight.
With hopes to begin shooting in early 2015, The Hateful Eight had a rough start after Tarantino gave the first draft of the script to a small group of actors and it was leaked online soon after. The director threw a very public hissy fit and threatened to never make the film. He had »

Would any Comic-Con celebrating the best, brightest and downright coolest in cinema be complete without that most audacious of filmmakers himself, Quentin Tarantino? I think not. So, it was truly thrilling to hear about the Pulp Fiction director taking the stage this year at the panel for Dynamite Comics’ upcoming Django Unchained-Zorro comic.
However, that intriguing venture was by no means the most exciting part of Tarantino’s appearance this year. After a fan pressed him about his troubled Western The Hateful Eight, the filmmaker confirmed that the film would be moving forward and rolling cameras in 2015. In response, the room erupted in deafening cheers.
The Hateful Eight got off to a strong start earlier this year, with Tarantino voicing a great deal of excitement for the movie and putting together a cast that included Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. However, an early draft of the script »

In an odd turn of events, this list has a number of films that don’t have English-language titles. They just go by whatever the original title was. Good for us. What we do see in this portion of the list is a few movies that weren’t really created specifically to be horror films, but their themes and visuals made it so. In addition, we have some heavyweights of non-horror cinema creating horror films that push the genre all the more upward. “Thinking man horror,” if you will.
20. Le locataire (1976)
English Language Title: The Tenant
Directed by: Roman Polanski
Roman Polanski has made one of the greatest horror “trilogies” of all time with 1965′s British production Repulsion, 1968′s American production Rosemary’s Baby, and 1976′s French production The Tenant, completing his “Apartment Trilogy.” Unlike the other two, Polanski actually stars in The Tenant as Trelkovsky, a reserved man renting an apartment in Paris. »

Rome – Venice topper Alberto Barbera has unveiled a promising lineup of fresh fare from around the world set to unspool at the 71st Venice Film Festival, with a rigorous focus on quality, discovery and diversity, likely to reveal some under-the-radar awards-season contenders and also bolster the Lido’s status as a global launching pad for prime auteur pics.
The robust U.S. contingent, largely from the indies, comprises new works from David Gordon Green, Andrew Niccol, Peter Bogdanovich, Lisa Cholodenko, Joe Dante, James Franco, Barry Levinson, Michael Almereyda, and Ami Canaan Mann.
As is customary at Venice, new works from name global auteurs, including Fatih Akin, Xavier Beauvois, Abel Ferrara, Andrei Konchalovsky, Shinya Tsukamoto, Amos Gitai, and Moshen Makhmalbaf, will play alongside pics by lesser-known helmers.
At a packed presser at Rome’s Hotel St.Regis Venice topper Alberto Barbera noted that “our job is more complex, more painful, because »

James Gray seems like an anachronism. Between visually noisy blockbusters and indies that display a greater interest in bending narrative conventions rather than mastering them, his adherence to a more classical form of storytelling feels out-of-touch with contemporary filmmaking practice. His evident influences and forerunners include Robert Bresson, Roberto Rossellini and Francis Ford Coppola, and his cinematic relationship to New York City feels indebted to Sidney Lumet yet remains unmistakably his own. Gray doesn’t use other filmmakers’ work as a Tarantino-esque palette for diversion, despite his shared affinity for crime drama, that signature ’90s indie genre staple (Gray’s first feature was a 1994 gangster film starring Tim Roth – that’d be Little Odessa, not Pulp Fiction). Gray’s narratives are classical and familiar, but they’re never derivative or postmodern. The filmmaker instead uses cinema’s history as a tool to master storytelling, character development, mood and setting as a form of practice, and »

Scheduled for a 2015 shoot, the film charts the love story between an Italian Pow in Scotland and a local woman.
The original screenplay by John Wrathall was previously selected for Working Title’s emerging writers scheme and has been developed by Blue Horizon with support from the BFI Film Fund.
Wrathall’s credits include the original screenplay for The Liability, starring Tim Roth and Peter Mullan, and Good starring Viggo Mortensen, which screened at Toronto and was released in the UK by Lionsgate.

Director Quentin Tarantino has calmed down a little since his Hateful Eight script leaked online earlier this year. At one point the filmmaker said that he was going to just shelve the project, but since then he did a live stage reading, and now the filmmaker is getting ready to put it into production. The news came in an interview with My Fox Philly, when actor Kurt Russell said:
"There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."
Regardless of all the drama that has surrounded this script, it's awesome to hear that there are once again plans to bring this story to life. I'm a huge fan of westerns, and this sounds like it will be awesome.
The story follows the "steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps »

"I've got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."
Back in April, we reported that Quentin Tarantino is working on a new draft of the script with a different ending, and that production may start in the winter. However, another report from May revealed that shooting is reportedly set to begin this November in Wyoming.
Of course, the movie almost never happened at all, after the first draft of his script leaked back in January, which prompted the filmmaker to file a lawsuit against Gawker Media shortly thereafter. Quentin Tarantino revealed after the leak that he was shelving the production, but the filmmaker had a change of heart, instead hosting a live reading of the script. »
The last we heard about Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated Western The Hateful Eight was that it would be shooting in November. This was a welcome turn of events in a development saga that had turned somewhat sordid. First, an early draft of the script leaked causing Tarantino to can the film and instead stage a live read. So getting a new Qt movie at all was a blessing. Now comes the delay. But the good news is that it’s apparently a minor one. Kurt Russell is claiming that the film will actually be shooting next year. Which, by the way, appears to lend some credibility to the idea that the cast of the live read of Hateful Eight would be returning for the film version. That cast included Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell and Tim Roth. »

Back in January, Quentin Tarantino was all set to follow up Django Unchained with another Western – that is until Gawker posted a leaked version of the script for The Hateful Eight online, with Quentin then deciding to take his ball home and put the brakes on the film. A few months later at Cannes, Tarantino revealed that he’d been considering if and how to move forward with the project, which was followed by a rumour that cameras would start rolling in November.
Well, it looks like that rumour was wide of the mark, but only slightly, as Kurt Russell has indicated that The Hateful Eight will go ahead, and is likely to shoot in the early part of 2015, with the Death Proof star telling MyFoxPhilly that “I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year. »

You know the story by now: Quentin Tarantino decided that "The Hateful Eight" would be his next film, an early version of the script leaked and then he said he wasn't going to make it at all, and then he was all like, "Fuck it, I'm gonna keep working on the script anyway." Earlier this spring, the director staged a live read with a starry ensemble — Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, James Parks, Denis Menochet, Dana Gourrier, Zoe Bell, James Remar — which our review noted was a flawed but compelling re-enactment of the first draft script. But with Qt making revisions, he may already have his eye on getting this thing made again. Kurt Russell (who played bounty hunter John Ruth in the live read) was asked by Cinema Blend about what's coming up, and the actor provided a brief »

It’s been an unusually rocky road to production for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained follow-up The Hateful Eight. Of course, the director’s status as a cinematic legend ensured that the project received a huge amount of media scrutiny as soon as its title was unveiled back in January, but after a copy of the script was leaked early in development, it seemed possible that the filmmaker would abandon the project altogether.
Luckily, news got a little more promising for The Hateful Eight as time went on. A live reading of the script occurred to widespread acclaim back in April, and a few weeks later, we got word that Tarantino would be reuniting that same group of actors from the live reading to shoot the film in November. For those of you who need a refresher, that impressive crop of actors included Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, »
