This week, the world's oldest and often most unpredictable film festival, the 71st Venice Film Festival, will unroll on the Lido. Twenty films will screen in competition, vying for the prestigious Golden Lion and a further fifty-odd films will show out of competition and in the various sidebars - all but one of which will be world premieres - along with nineteen restored classics and a series of shorts. French composer Alexandre Desplat is heading the jury, which includes Britain's very own Tim Roth. Following on from last year's big bang opening of Alfonso Cuarón's Oscar-engulfing Gravity (2013), fellow Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu's (Amores Perros) heavily shrouded Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), ought to kick things of in some style if early glimpses are anything to go by.

After racially-charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, made headlines this summer, there’s no denying that civil rights biopic Selma is going to strike a chord with many when it releases this winter. Starring David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr. and Carmen Ejogo as his wife Carmen Scott, the Ava DuVernay-directed pic centers on the influential march from Selma to Montgomery, which paved the way for the 1965 passage of the Voting Rights Act.
Whether the inspiring, resonant story at the heart of Selma will make it an Oscar contender remains to be seen. The latter half of 2014 will be filled with similarly high-profile biopics, many of which are already earning awards buzz. In the coming months, Tim Burton will unveil Big Eyes, about Margaret Keane and her husband Walter; Angelina Jolie »

Now that Quentin Tarantino has decided to move full steam ahead with The Hateful Eight – even going so far as to release a teaser trailer, which you can watch here – it’s being reported by Collider that the director is looking to add some Oscar-winning talent to the cast, with Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, The Hunger Games) said to be in negotiations to join the Western.
Assuming Tarantino’s rewrites of the script haven’t added any major characters, then Lawrence will presumably be wanted for either Daisy Domergue or Six Horse Judy, who were portrayed by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell during the live-script read of the screenplay a few months back.
As yet, we’ve heard nothing about the official cast for The Hateful Eight, although Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks and Denis Menochet were »

Those who attended midnight screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For last night were among the first to see the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's new Western The Hateful Eight. Following a description of the trailer earlier this week, the full video has leaked online, which you can take a look at below.
Last month, we reported that Quentin Tarantino plans on using his cast from the live reading of the script earlier this year, which includes Bruce Dern (The Confederate), Samuel L. Jackson (The Bounty Hunter), Kurt Russell (The Hangman), Amber Tamblyn (The Prisoner), Walton Goggins (The Sheriff), Michael Madsen (The Cow Puncher) and Tim Roth (The Little Man), James Remar and Zoe Bell (Six-Horse Judy).
We also reported yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence is in negotiations to join the cast, although it isn't clear what role she may be portraying.
Given the events on the ground right now in Ferguson, Missouri, there is going to be an undeniable resonance with Ava DuVernay's "Selma" when it arrives later this year. The Martin Luther King Jr. pic, once attached to Lee Daniels, tells a remarkable true story that hasn't lost any of its power since it all happened more than four decades ago. Featuring the ensemble cast of David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Tim Roth, Wendell Pierce, and Colman Domingo, "Selma" will tell the true story of Martin Luther King Jr. and his involvement in the Civil Rights march from Selma to Montgomery, which captured the attention of the nation and the world, and led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. Of course, the subject matter alone puts Oscar contention all over this, but let's not forget that this film »

Lawrence is at the very height of success, where she can pretty much turn any film to gold in Hollywood. Working with great directors such as David O Russell and X-men:first Class’s Matthew Vaughn, she’s shown wonderful diversity in her work. It might come as a surprise to some that she’s being linked with Quentin Tarantino, but it’s probably because the Django Unchained director has a completely different ball game to film-making, which is usually a good mix of fun and brutal. His casting choices are usually second to none, making the likes of Pitt and DiCaprio detestable or unrecognisable.
It’s not yet known what role she’s set to take on but it is »

Acclaimed French actress Bérénice Bejo, who received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nom for her breakout role as Peppy Miller in The Artist, has joined Cosmopolis star Robert Pattinson in the upcoming post-wwi biopic The Childhood of a Leader.

Bejo will take on the key role of the leader’s mother, replacing Juliette Binoche after scheduling conflicts forced that actress to disembark. Tim Roth and Michael Epp also star in the film. It will be just one more meaty part for Bejo, who has drawn raves for her post-Artist performances in The Past, for which she won »

Quentin Tarantino’s next blood-soaked adventure, The Hateful Eight, has not begun filming yet but a teaser has already been produced. It will presumably be attached to Tarantino’s good buddy Robert Rodriguez’s long-awaited Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which is due out in cinemas this weekend.
Earlier today the teaser leaked online in admittedly poor cam quality, but who cares? It’s a taste of a new Tarantino movie! Naturally, since filming is yet to start the teaser has no actual footage from the film, but it does do a great job at hyping up the titular hateful eight.
The Hateful Eight stars 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, and is slated for release in 2015. Watch the trailer here while you can!
