Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight lives! Those of of us who didn't seek out a leaked copy or have the cash to watch a live all-star reading of Tarantino's screenplay were psyched when the Oscar winner decided to go ahead and make the movie anyway, despite his ire when the script showed up online. Ultimately, instead of punishing his fans by not going forward with his planned follow-up to Django Unchained, Tarantino went and gathered the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Channing Tatum (alas, in a small role, so not one of the Eight), Bruce Dern, Walter Goggins, Demian Bechir, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth to see his vision through. Just as Django was a vaguely »
The 97-second clip includes no actual footage from the film, but does outline the basic storyline of eight strangers coming together in a blizzard.
Tarantino's dangerous group is comprised of Tarantino's The Bounty Hunter (Samuel L Jackson), The Hangman (Kurt Russell), The Prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh), The Sheriff (Walton Goggins), The Mexican (Demián Bichir), The Little Man (Tim Roth), The Cow Puncher (Michael Madsen) and The Confederate (Bruce Dern).
Tarantino revived and re-worked The Hateful Eight last year even after a draft of the screenplay was leaked online.
The Hateful Eight is expected to be released in the Us on November 13 this year. A UK release is yet to be set. »
Quentin Tarantino’s teaser trailer for The Hateful Eight has finally been officially released online after previously only being available to cinema goers who went to see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. For some it’s old news, but for those who weren’t lucky enough to have seen it, the trailer is available in all its blood-soaked, Iggy Pop glory below.
Gory spatters, edgy graphics and an awesome soundtrack by Iggy and the Stooges make sure this exciting trailer is steeped in Tarantino’s trademark style.
The film is set to star Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern alongside Channing Tatum. The Hateful Eight is set for release late this year. For a little more information, here’s the official synopsis….

Oh, who even cares about "Star Wars"? The teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's latest revenge fantasy is here! The film hadn't started shooting yet when this was cut, so we'll have to settle for a bunch of blood-spattered animations, a quick plot summary and some basic character rundowns. (The song, by the way, is Iggy and the Stooges' "Gimme Danger.") For the record, here's the actor who plays each member of the titular eight: Major Marquis Warren ("The Bounty Hunter"): Samuel L. Jackson John Ruth ("The Hangman"): Kurt Russell Daisy Domergue ("The Prisoner"): Jennifer Jason Leigh Chris Mannix ("The Sheriff"): Walton Goggins Bob ("The Mexican"): Demian Bichir Oswaldo Mobray ("The Little Man"): Tim Roth Joe Gage ("The Cow Puncher"): MIchael Madsen General Sandy Smithers ("The Confederate"): Bruce Dern »

The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, The Hateful Eight has now officially arrived online after a bootlegged version hit the web after it premiered only in theaters in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For last year. Of course, that bootleg version didn't stick around online for too long, but now it has finally arrived in something of an official capacity. It's an entirely text-based trailer with a bit of graphic design behind it, but if you're excited about the new film this should add to that excitement. The film doesn't hit theaters until Christmas Day, so it may be a while before we get an actual trailer with footage, but you can give this little tease a watch below. yt id="_FECQsdLEWA" width="515" In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. »

Quentin Tarantino promises a "glorious" 70mm experience for his Civil War-era western, which first premiered this trailer ahead of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill" last summer. It's now online. Starring Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins, the film follows a group of stagecoach travelers trapped after a blizzard sends them off course. Amongst the crew are two bounty hunters and a rogue Confederate soldier. The Weinstein Company releases later this year. Read More: Production Begins on Tarantino's "Hateful Eight" »

The short clip doesn't have any actual footage from the flick. Instead, it features a set of title cards that explain the film's basic premise -- it takes place on the American frontier shortly after the Civil War, eight strangers with a mysterious joint secret are stranded together in a snowstorm -- and introduces its eclectic cast of characters.
In typical Tarantino fashion, those introductions are made with stylish graphics, a funky soundtrack, and a set of ridiculous monikers. (Joe Cage, a.k.a. "The Cow Puncher," has us especially intrigued.) And yes, there's some blood spatter, too.

As stylish as ever for the esteemed director, the clip itself features no footage from the feature film, and instead acts as a roll call detailing the western’s rather magnificent ensemble. Set against Iggy and the Stooges and featuring blood-red title cards, the teaser for Tarantino’s latest is about as Tarantino-esque as they come.
Speaking of which, The Hateful Eight boasts an ensemble cast that brings together members of the director’s regular pool of actors, including the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. There’s also roles for Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern and Channing Tatum in what we understand to be a minor, as-yet-unspecified part.
Quentin Tarantino will venture into »
- Michael Briers
It has been a long and winding road, but we are finally getting closer to the next Quentin Tarantino movie.
The teaser for The Hateful Eight was officially released on Thursday after being shown last year prior to Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Channing Tatum.
The Hateful Eight takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming where bounty hunters try to find shelter during a blizzard, but get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception.
The teaser was leaked online after it was shown before Sin City 2, but it seems like The Weinstein Company is releasing the trailer officially now. The movie has gone through a very tumultuous pre-production after the script was leaked online spurning Tarantino to can the film. He ended up coming back »

As this chat with Tatau’s lead actors, Joe Layton and Theo Barklem-Biggs, took place before the press screening for BBC Three’s new supernatural drama, the pair were given the responsibility of describing the series to me: Unique. Mysterious. Fast-paced. Energy-fuelled. A hurricane. A typhoon. (Before long, they're just listing weather systems.)
“It’s a teen show, accessible for young people” cuts in Barklem-Biggs as his co-star brings up the otherworldly, occult palette of True Detective, “even around all this darkness there will be moments that make you laugh as well. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.”
Layton gets back on message and agrees, “I think it really suits BBC Three.”

This is certainly not the royal treatment. The Nicole Kidman movie "Grace of Monaco" opened last year's Cannes Film Festival, but it's now headed to Lifetime. Yep, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it will premiere as a Lifetime movie on Memorial Day, May 25.
"Grace of Monaco" stars Oscar-winner Kidman as Grace Kelly, with Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III, and Frank Langella and Parker Posey in supporting roles. The film was originally scheduled for late 2013 release and - considering the star and subject - was viewed early on as a potential Oscar contender. Then it was panned by critics, the release date was shifted to early 2014, that didn't work out, and The Weinstein Company didn't include "Grace of Monaco" on its 2015 release schedule. Instead of releasing it in U.S. theaters, a source confirmed to THR that The Weinstein Company decided to sell "Grace" directly to Lifetime.
So now fans »

I remember a time when Grace of Monaco was an Oscar hopeful in everyone's eyes. It opened the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, Nicole Kidman was playing a screen legend sure to garner some attention, Olivier Dahan was directing (whose La Vie En Rose garnered Marion Cotillard an Oscar), and The Weinstein Company was sure to position it like they did The Imitation Game. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. After receiving scathing reviews from just about everyone out of Cannes and no one wanting to touch it with a ten-foot pole, Variety reports the film will premiere on Lifetime on May 25. You read that right. Lifetime. A film that opened Cannes will now be playing on the same station that houses the Lindsay Lohan-starring Liz and Dick and the Grumpy Cat movie. I can hardly believe it myself. Lifetime may not have the same stigmatization to others than it does for myself, »

Roughly one year after it was laughed out of the Cannes Film Festival, the Nicole Kidman debacle "Grace of Monaco" had finally found a home... Lifetime. Lifetime announced this week that "Grace of Monaco" will premiere on Monday, May 25 at 8 p.m. Directed by Olivier Dahan ("La Vie en Rose"), "Grace of Monaco" features Kidman in the title role and co-stars Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey and Paz Vegas. In his D- review for the film, HitFix's Guy Lodge called "Grace of Monace" "a hilariously ham-handed attempt to dig beneath the Kelly mystique, only to find further foil-wrapped layers of mystique beneath. Well, maybe not mystique so much as a perfumed blankness." "Grace of Monaco" stands at 9 percent Fresh on RottenTomatoes. And now it'll almost certainly get Nicole Kidman a Golden Globe nomination and perhaps Emmy consideration. Who needs Oscars? Lifetime is aggressively pushing into the business of rescuing film festival underperformers. »

The drama opened the Cannes Film Festival in May to mostly negative reviews, with Variety‘s Scott Foundas calling it a “cornball melodrama.” The film was plagued by drama onscreen and off, with the Weinstein Co. originally making a $5 million deal to acquire U.S. rights to the $35 million production.
“Grace of Monaco” takes place in 1962, six years after Kelly celebrated her “wedding of the century” and finds her yearning for a return to her acting career. It also stars Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Paz Vega and Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III.

Would it be great if your film gets in SXSW? Absolutely. But does SXSW need any more coverage? No. Meanwhile, there are plenty of other Texas film festivals that not only deserve your attention but can actually launch your career. Here are five that you need to get into. Dallas International Film FestivalPrevious DIFFs rolled out the red carpet for both indie filmmakers and A-listers like Greg Kinnear, Tim Roth, and Peter Fonda; featured panels with actor Laura Linney and costume designer Bernie Pollack; and screened films at the At&T Performing Arts Center and the Dallas Museum of Art. This year, Diff will be premiering "5 Flights Up," with Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman, and "Love & Mercy," with Paul Dano and John Cusack. Diff is also part of the greater Dallas Film Society, which has courses and events year-round. Submitted films must be at least a Dallas-Fort Worth premiere. Oak »
Nearly one year after its opening night slot in Cannes, it emerged that the biopic starring Nicole Kidman will not get a Us theatrical release.
Critics mostly dubbed Grace Of Monaco a flop when it premiered on the Croisette and the tale will now get its first public showing on Lifetime on May 25.
The film was set for release in November 2013 and was subsequently pushed back to spring 2014.

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.
With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.
Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.
For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »
Quentin Tarantino is currently in the throes of his putting his new film, The Hateful Eight, together. The movie sees him follow up Oscar-winning Django Unchained with another western, and as always Tarantino has attracted quite the cast. Channing Tatum, Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Jennifer Jason Leigh are all on board.
One man who isn't, though, is Viggo Mortsensen. The Lord Of The Rings star had been linked with the film, and in a new interview with Grantland, the actor admitted that he and Tarantino "did meet" about the project.
"All of last fall, I travelled non-stop", he said. "I was on a plane every two days to promote Jauja and Far From Men. I knew as a producer and an actor that I needed »
