From Dusk Till Dawn The Series Blog: ‘Pilot’ Review

2 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Written By: Robert Rodriguez

Director: Robert Rodriguez

Cast: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Wilmer Valderrama, Don Johnson

Synopsis: The fugitive Gecko brothers face a bloody stand-off during a routine stop at a liquor store.

When I first heard that Robert Rodriquez was planning to turn his film From Dusk Till Dawn into a series, I was a little dubious.  The film has become a bit of a cult classic and I just couldn’t see how anyone could take this story into a ten-episode show, let alone portray those parts played so well by George Clooney and Harvey Keitel.

Like the film, the pilot begins a liquor store with the ever entertaining Don Johnson as Texas ranger Earl McGraw. If you know the film, you can guess what happens next.

However, this is where immediate changes are noticeable because unlike the film, this show delves into more of supernatural feel very early on. »

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series – Episode Six Review

16 April 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen review the sixth episode of From Dusk Till Dawn

If there is one thing From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series has done right, it’s taking short periods of the original movie and stretching them convincingly over 45 minutes. Granted, last week’s episode was a bump in the road in terms of contrivance, but episode six, Place of Dead Roads, doesn’t take a 10 minute portion of the movie and expand – it takes perhaps 3-5 minutes of Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 cult favourite and gets an amazing amount of mileage out of it.

The Gecko Brothers and the Fuller family have finally made it to The Titty Twister bar in Mexico, the battleground for the war that has been promised all season. While Ritchie gets loaded and starts throwing knives with the locals, Seth gets into a brawl with some bikers before meeting with a rival of Carlos who »

Jake Busey Tells Us How 'From Dusk till Dawn: The Series' Is Kick-starting His Career Comeback

14 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If someone were to make a 20 Feet from Stardom-type documentary about actors, they'd be smart to talk to Jake Busey. We spoke with him earlier today about his role in Robert Rodriguez' From Dusk till Dawn: The Series and were surprised by how honest he was about how his career didn't exactly go the way he was expecting. After all, some of his earliest jobs were in high-profile films from directors like Robert Zemeckis, Paul Verhoeven, Tony Scott and Peter Jackson. Unfortunately those films were also high-profile disappointments, from a box office perspective at least. Movies like Contact, Starship Troopers and The Frighteners have gone on to live long, great lives on home video, but as Busey told us, being in a movie that takes a decade to become a cultural hit...

Why Indie Cable Doesn’t Need the Weather Channel to Know Which Way the Wind Blows

14 April 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you’re a small cable outlet without massive corporate backing, the Weather Channel offered a forecast last week that should be troubling: continued storms and fog.

The independent network raised eyebrows recently when it ended a three-month spat with DirecTV that resulted in changes to its afternoon programming schedule; a promise to bring back more instant local weather information; and granting DirecTV the right to show its programming across multiple devices to people who can prove they are subscribers to the satellite broadcaster.

That sounds like a lot to do in order to get a price increase that, according to several press outlets, did not even amount to a penny per subscriber. But wait, there’s more. In a decidedly unconventional move, Weather Co. Chairman and CEO David Kenny offered a written apology to DirecTV and its customers in a press release announcing the defrost in relations between the »

First Look at the New Titty Twister, Thoughts on From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series So Far

8 April 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

This afternoon, Robert Rodriguez posted a pic from From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series that gives us our first look at the notorious Titty Twister. The Mexican bar filled with scoundrels and shitty beer and vampire babes. Ang guess what? It looks just like the old Titty Twister as featured in the 1996 film. I guess they adopted the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series airs its fifth episode tonight on the El Rey Network; Joe Menendez directs. I have to ask: Who is tuning in? I seem to be seeing one of two things...a.) no one can find out what channel the El Rey Network is and b.) there's apprehension about the series' quality.

Jim Jarmusch On the Future of Independent Film: 'Cinema needs to be reduced to its essential poetry'

8 April 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jim Jarmusch is member of that elite (non-existent) club of multi-hyphenate, fiercely independent filmmakers that have covered almost every role in the filmmaking process. Included in this group are the likes of Robert Rodriguez, Julie Delpy and Shane Carruth. For Jarmusch, music has always been a vital part of his creative expression, whether scoring his films, performing with his band, casting musicians in his films or shooting documentaries about them. His latest film "Only Lovers Left Alive," not only takes the vampire genre back from teenagers with a smart and funny screenplay, but casts one of the lead vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddlestone) as a musician with a penchant for expensive, classic guitars and analogue recording, with Jarmusch performing the guitar parts on the soundtrack. Interviewed at Thessaloniki Film Festival in Greece, Jarmusch talks about his latest film and the importance of music in his life. "Only Lovers Alive" opens in select theaters this Friday. »

Top 5 Most Anticipated New TV Series of 2014

7 April 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

After True Detective set the bar at such a staggering high with it's series debut in 2014, I figured we should take a look at what's in store for the rest of the year on the small screen. That answer may surprise you…. Horror. I'm not counting American Horror Story either, although technically I could, considering each season is a brand new stand-alone series. As a side-note, I actually am very excited for the fourth series of Ahs now that it's been announced with a 1950's Carnival setting. I also won't count the TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn which has already begun airing on Robert Rodriguez' new El Rey Network. That series is off to a very strong start, featuring great performances, explosive action and a faithful but expansive take on one of my favourite cult classic features. »

Adrianne Palicki Talks "Friday Night Lights," "From Dusk Till Dawn" & Wonder Woman!

1 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Between "Friday Night Lights," her current gig on "From Dusk Till Dawn" and an upcoming role on "About a Boy," Adrianne Palicki just can't get away from TV shows based on popular films."It's weird right? Thankfully they've all done really well, which is great," the actress tells toofab's Brian Particelli. "It's always scary venturing into that world. I remember when 'Friday Night Lights' came around, I was like 'I don't know, it's about football.' Now, I love football, but sports shows don't tend to do well, and it's based on a movie, another thing that doesn't do well.""It ended up being the greatest thing I've ever done," she says.

Noah Wins Weekend, Chronicle & Top Gun Sequels in the Works, Chris Evans Passes the (Human) Torch, New Sin City 2 Stills

1 April 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Box Office Based on the Bible or not, Noah was a big draw for moviegoers this past weekend, dominating the box office with a $43.7 million debut, the fourth highest of 2014. The movie was not only a coup for Paramount, but for title star Russell Crowe and director Darren Aronofsky: Noah is the highest opening ever for a Crowe-led movie and it earned more than Aronofsky's first movie movies put together!

Divergent took second, adding $25.6 million to its total, which nears the $100 million mark. Divergent actually had more staying power than similar Ya movies, dropping 53% in week two versus, e.g., The Hunger Games, which dropped 62% in its second week in theaters. Muppets Most Wanted took third with $11.3 million, while Mr. Peabody & Sherman came in fourth with $9 million. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens this week in the States, opened internationally to an impressive $75.2 million.
