Blu-ray 3D, DVD, Digital Release: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

22 October 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Nov. 18, 2014; Digital Release Date: Nov. 7, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: The Weinstein Company

The action-packed, graphic novel-styled thriller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the decade-later sequel to 2005’s Sin City, both of which are directed Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl).

We don't know your opinion, but we definitely think Eva Green is A Dame to Kill For.

The film is filled with  scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery revolving around the lives of those swept up in a crime-filled underworld. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, Sin City’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.

The film stars original Sin City performers Mickey Rourke (Immortal), Jessica Alba (Spy Kids 4), Bruce Willis (Looper), Powers Boothe (TV’s Hatfields and McCoys) and Rosario Dawson »

What happened to the cast of The Blair Witch Project? 15 years later

22 October 2014 2:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Blair Witch Project celebrates its 15th anniversary in the UK today (October 22).

The frightening, low-budget, found-footage horror movie was written and directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, and featured an unknown cast who used their own names in the film.

The Blair Witch Project 15 years on: The horror movie that changed everything

It became the first of its kind in Hollywood due to its commercial success and viral online campaign, which was created to make the production look like a real documentary. The Blair Witch website with details on the made-up mythology still exists.

And the clever campaign worked on some gullible and vulnerable viewers. We remember witnessing real tears of fear being shed by some audience members in the cinema (and definitely not ours...).

It purports to be a documentary shot by three inquisitive, daring, and at times daft students investigating the local Blair Witch legend in the Maryland forest. »

Sin City 2 Is A Mess Behind The Scenes Too

19 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Things didn't exactly go too well for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For when it was released in theaters back in August. The movie was largely dumped on by critics (a big contrast compared to the reception of the first movie back in 2005) and then it completely underwhelmed at the box office (another big contrast). And as if that situation wasn't bad enough, now even more is going wrong behind the scenes. Robert Rodriguez and his affiliate companies have filed a lawsuit against the financiers of both Sin City 2 and Machete Kills, claiming that he never received a payment of $7.7 million that was promised to him. The lawsuit has been filed specifically against Sergei Bespalov, Marina Bespalov, Maddartico, Vrelonovama, Aldamisa Entertainment and SC2 Productions, alleging both breach of contract and fraud. Variety notes that part of the claim says that the filmmaker was »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Three

17 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Post-1960S, Pre-Digital Age: Real-time One-offs, 1975-1998

British filmmaker John Byrum is responsible for the first (and in some ways only) real-time period film. Inserts (1975), set in the early 1930s, is about a Boy Wonder movie director (called Boy Wonder, played by Richard Dreyfuss fresh from American Graffiti (1973) and Jaws (1975)) now washed up before the age of 30, resigned to making porn because of Hollywood’s conversion to sound. Not only is Inserts scrupulously real-time (with the exception of the opening credits sequence, which offers glimpses of the stag film we’re about to see made) and period, but it’s rather long for such a film, just shy of two hours. To tell the entire story would be spoiling the fun, but the Boy Wonder deals with recalcitrant actresses, the problem of his own potency, career problems, death, sex, after-death and after-sex…and in the end, as »

17 October 2014 6:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has sued the financers of “Sin City 2″ and “Machete Kills,” alleging non-payment of $7.7 million.

The suit was filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Rodriguez and his affiliate companies against Sergei Bespalov, Marina Bespalov, Maddartico, Vrelonovama, Aldamisa Entertainment and SC2 Productions.

It alleged breach of contract and fraud. The suit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

“In order to induce Plaintiffs to enter into agreements with various of the Defendants relating to the Pictures, Defendants, including, specifically, Sergei Bespalov, falsely assured and represented to Plaintiffs that Defendants had more than sufficient financial resources and cash flow – not only from and related to the Pictures, but also from other projects – to honor all of their financial obligations to Plaintiffs.”

The suit alleged that when the money was not paid as promised, Rodriguez paid from his own funds to “Machete Kills” screenwriter Kyle Ward.

Et Flashback: On Set with 'Pulp Fiction' 20 Years Ago

14 October 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

20 years later, we're still loving Pulp Fiction!

Can you believe it's been 20 years since we first learned what a "Royale with Cheese" was in Quentin Tarantino's classic Pulp Fiction?

Et was on the set a year before the film's release back in 1993 with stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, and the creator himself, Quentin Tarantino.

"The intensity level is way up, and the comedy level is way up and that’s even disturbing," Tarantino told Et. "I'm trying to also make you laugh at things you've never laughed about."

And while we couldn't imagine anyone else as Vincent Vega, there was once a time when the John Travolta casting choice came as a shock.

"A lot of people read the script before we cast and they’re thinking of a zillion different names and then you say John Travolta – they go… what!?" Tarantino »

Storytelling techniques we rarely see in the movies anymore

13 October 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From long credits to bullet time, here are a few techniques and film conventions we don't see in the movies these days...

Over more than a century, cinema has built up its own storytelling vocabulary. Thanks to generations of intelligent and groundbreaking filmmakers, movies contain a rich and complex set of editing, filming and framing techniques, most of them so firmly embedded in our subconscious that we don't even think about them while we're sitting in our local multiplex.

Inevitably, there are some aspects of filmmaking that have changed considerably over time. New ideas and conventions continuously float in, while old ones become over-used and phase out as a result. It's the latter we're focusing on here: the filmmaking conventions and techniques that are either becoming rare, or have vanished altogether. Bear in mind that some of the things below may suddenly come back into vogue very soon, while the »

Is Robert Rodriguez Recruiting Quentin Tarantino For His Next Project?

ETonline caught up with the director on the set of Matador.

It's been seven years since Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino teamed up together for the Grindhouse double feature: Planet Terror and Death Proof. Needless to say, fans are chomping at the bit for another collaboration.

ETonline recently caught up with auteur director on the set of Matador, the flagship drama on the El Rey Network which he co-founded, to find out if he'd ever recruit his longtime pal and frequent collaborator to develop a show for the network.

"I know he's about to shoot The Hateful Eight but you never know," Rodriquez says of the prospects. "If there's TV where better than El Rey is there a home for him."

How Universal Created a Living Trailer for ‘Dracula Untold’ at its Theme Parks

3 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s marketing team had a challenge when coming up with their campaign for “Dracula Untold,” the studio’s latest tale of Vlad the Impaler who becomes the iconic blood sucking vampire.

The film, which Legendary Entertainment helped co-finance, revolves around the origins of the character and his love for his family, and stars a younger Vlad, played by Luke Evans, who wears armor rather than a cape. The film also spends less time in a dark, dreary castle and more time on a battlefield with Turkish armies. There are still bats, however. Lots of bats.

With Halloween Horror Nights, Universal found itself with the opportunity to turn to its theme parks to bring the film to life with a maze that showcases the film’s setpieces and introduces them to moviegoers who may not have known about the new angle producers are taking on the classic monster.

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter 

Barry Levinson‘s drama The Humbling, which stars Al Pacino, and Richard Lagravanese‘s musical The Last Five Years, which Jason Robert Brown adapted from his off-Broadway show — two films that had their world premieres at this month’s Toronto International Film Festival and quickly found U.S. distributors that see them as 2014 awards bait — will open the 21st annual Austin Film Festival and Screenwriters Conference on Oct. 23, the fest announced on Tuesday.

Additionally, Jon Stewart‘s feature directorial debut Rosewater, a drama based on the harrowing true story of the Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari, will close the fest in Texas’ capital on Oct. 30, with Stewart and Bahari — who have been working the fest circuit hard this fall — on hand for the festivities.

And writer-director-producer Edward Zwick will receive this year’s Extraordinary Contribution to Film Award on Oct. 25. Previous recipients of this honor have included Jonathan Demme, »
