It.s hard to believe there was a time that Samuel L. Jackson was not a movie screen mainstay, or that there was a time when Quentin Tarantino didn.t just give the guy whatever role he wanted. It.s true though. Jackson once read for a part in Reservoir Dogs though he did not get the part. Why not? It was that motherfucker Tarantino.s fault. Speaking with Vulture, Jackson (who uses the expletive lovingly in reference to his dear friend Quentin Tarantino) opens up about the audition that did not go well at all. After making a splash with Spike Lee.s Jungle Fever, Jackson went in to read for a part in a new film for an unknown screenwriter. He thought he would be reading with Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel. Instead, he did his reading with a couple of guys who didn.t know the lines »
Samuel L. Jackson remembers the exact moment he met Quentin Tarantino, because, well, it’s hard to forget the motherfucker who screwed up your audition for Reservoir Dogs. That was 24 years ago, and Jackson still calls Tarantino a motherfucker, though now “it’s the endearing motherfucker, not the curse motherfucker,” he says, as in their common greeting, “What the fuck, motherfucker!”Jackson tells the tale of their first encounter with the kind of affectionate shit-talking born of deep friendship; they’ve just finished their sixth movie together (The Hateful Eight, out December 25). It was 1991, the year Jackson, a theater veteran just getting into movies, won Best Supporting Actor at Cannes for Jungle Fever. He’d shown up to casting for this unknown screenwriter’s first feature having memorized a scene he thought he’d be playing with Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel. Instead, he got stuck reading with two bozos he’d never seen before, »

"Grace of Monaco" made a dramatic Hollywood comeback when Emmy nominations were announced on July 16. To the surprise of most pundits, it earned a nomination for Best TV Movie. The film stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly during the time when Kelly was the princess of Monaco and her husband, Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth), was in conflict with French president Charles de Gaulle (André Penvern). -Break- 'Secret Life of Marilyn' & 'Grace of Monaco': Emmys for portraying showbiz legends? Originally intended for theatrical release, the film never made it to theaters. The production was troubled by criticisms from Kelly's children, a behind-the-scenes battle for final cut and a chilly reception at the Cannes Film Festival where it premiered in 2014. But despite being written off by almost everybody, Lifetime took a chance on it and aired it on May 25, just in time to make it eligible at the Emmys. »

The Weinstein Company
The director’s already helmed at least one effort in this genre with Django Unchained, but everything from the uber-wide lenses at use in the trailer to the Ennio Morricone score suggest The Hateful Eight is going to be a more faithful love-letter to the mid-twentieth century greats he’s cribbing from this time around.
Now, a bunch of new posters have landed. The snowy back-drop and striking red/white colour motif present in the trailer are preserved, but these one-sheets seem chiefly designed as an opportunity to exhibit the eclectic cast.
Whilst there’s still no sign of Channing Tatum’s Jody, they showcase an assortment of the film’s rogues, including those portrayed by Tarantino regulars Samuel. L Jackson, Tim Roth and Kurt Russell. »

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, »

Today’s new arrivals essentially round out the rest of the villainous ensemble, with Samuel L.

Jackson's Major Marquis Warren, a.k.a. The Bounty Hunter earlier today.

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.

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.

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins. While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening. Especially when it's your 40th anniversary. Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »
