From Dusk Till Dawn: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”

24 August 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »

Why Robert Rodriguez Didn't Just Make a TV Show -- He Made a TV Network

24 August 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After bursting into the film world in the 1990s, Robert Rodriguez has consistently shown an inclination towards the unconventional approach -- but it was still a bit of a surprise when he decided to become the figurehead of the El Rey Network in 2013, devoted to programming the sort of television that, well, Rodriguez would want to watch.

Quentin Tarantino thinks Wes Craven held Scream back from greatness: 'He was the iron chain'

24 August 2015 1:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scream might be seen as a '90s horror classic, but Quentin Tarantino thinks he could've done a better job than the film's director Wes Craven.

In a wide-ranging interview with Vulture, Tarantino addressed his aversion to becoming a franchise director for hire, but revealed that he was interested in putting his own stamp on Kevin Williamson's Scream script in the '90s.

"I could have imagined doing the first Scream. The Weinsteins were trying to get Robert Rodriguez to do it," he said.

"I don't even think they thought I would be interested. I actually didn't care for Wes Craven's direction of it. I thought he was the iron chain attached to its ankle that kept it earthbound and stopped it from going to the moon."

The Django Unchained director also admitted that he turned down the chance to make high-profile blockbusters Men in Black and Speed »

Robert Rodriguez to shoot another $7000 feature film

23 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Robert Rodriguez has revealed that he plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his feature debut El Mariachi by directing another $7000-budgeted film, which he’ll shoot next year.

“I’ll have no crew,” Rodriguez tells the Nerdist podcast, “I’ll just use friends. I’ve got some pretty cool friends I can put in front of the camera. But still, no crew, no money.”

Rodriguez’s Spanish-language 1992 debut was intended for release in the Mexican straight-to-video market but was picked up by Columbia, and eventually grossed over $2 million. Launching the filmmaker’s career, it was followed by the sequels Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico, both of which saw Antonio Banderas taking over as the mariachi from Carlos Gallardo.

TV Review: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,’ Season 2

21 August 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the maiden season of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” served a clear purpose – giving a signature, recognizable franchise to the fledgling El Rey Network – it’s hard to make much of a case for an encore. Yes, the show continues with a mix of characters old and new, but whatever novelty there was has worn off, leaving little worth digesting for all but true genre connoisseurs and diehard fans of director Robert Rodriguez and/or the cultish original. Some fresh star power (Esai Morales, Danny Trejo) can’t escape the sense this show has been kept alive past its expiration date.

Granted, there was room for skepticism in certain quarters (including this one) whether the 1996 movie, a staple on latenight cable, cried out to be adapted and expanded into series form in the first place, cashing in on the equity in a title that had already spawned cheapo sequels. »

Listen To Two Podcast Interviews With Robert Rodriguez, Director Says He'll Make A $7000 Movie Next Year

21 August 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For well over two decades Robert Rodriguez has been an inspiration for young, broke filmmakers hoping to cobble together a feature length film in their own backyard on their own dime. The incomparably talented writer-director-producer-cinematographer-soundman broke onto the scene in 1992 (the same year as his longtime friend and collaborating partner, Quentin Tarantino) with his dusty gangster flick, “El Mariachi,” which he shot all by himself on the super cheap. Looking back at the paltry $7,000 Rodriguez filmed the movie for, the figure is impressive even today — most noticeably for the fact that roughly $6,400 was spent on film alone. While inflation has risen in the years since, so too have young filmmakers’ abilities to actually make a film. Most everyone carries a high resolution camera in their pocket. No matter how you cut it, Rodriguez was a pioneer, a director who revolutionized independent film, and one who continues to push boundaries. In recent years Rodriguez has. »

Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (Eiza González) and Richie (Zane Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border »

Review: Dude Bro Party Massacre III

19 August 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The title says it all.

When a movie is called Dude Bro Party Massacre III and there have not been two previous Dude Bro Party movies, you know one of two things: either you need to see this movie as soon as possible or it is not for you. It is the first movie from 5 Second Films (5Sf), a comedy site and collective of actors and filmmakers who have been posting short videos online since the mid-2000s but are finally branching out into features. It is gory and ridiculous and absolutely recommended for fans of '80s horror or absurdist comedy. It's even better if you're a fan of both.

The conceit of the film is that it's the second sequel to an '80s slasher called Dude Bro Party and that the only remaining copy left in the world exists because a kid taped it off of TV in the '80s, »

"Jonny Quest" Film Set To Go Old School

18 August 2015 10:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Hitman: Agent 47" set to hit cinemas this week, there's been a bunch of press regarding the film and interviews with the film's producer Adrian Askarieh. Askarieh is a man in demand these days and one of his upcoming projects is that of the live-action film adaptation of the "Jonny Quest" franchise which Robert Rodriguez recently became attached to write and direct.

Speaking about 'Quest' this week with Collider, Askarieh confirmed that Rodriguez recently turned in the script he co-wrote with Terry Rossio which they crafted out of an earlier draft by Dan Mazeau. The script reportedly isn't ready for the studio yet but will hopefully be handed in shortly after the Labor Day holiday.

In terms of the content, Askarieh says they're using the original 1960s Jonny Quest prime time animated show as their source of inspiration, rather than the more recent "The New Adventures of Jonny Quest". As a result, »

'Jonny Quest' Movie Compared to 'Indiana Jones', Will Be PG-13

18 August 2015 6:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's spent seven long years in development, but Warner Bros. is finally moving forward with their highly-anticipated adaptation of Jonny Quest, with the studio bringing on Robert Rodriguez in May to direct this live-action adventure. We haven't heard anything further about the project since then, but today Collider has an update from producer Adrian Askarieh, who revealed that they are keeping the same characters from the original 1060s series, such as Johnny's father Benton Quest, their bodyguard Race Bannon and more.

"No, Jonny Quest is in it. Race Bannon, Benton Quest, Hadji is in the movie, even Bandit. Jezebel Jade. If you love Jonny Quest, the potential that this movie has to honor that show, I think you'll be thrilled by it."

The original Jonny Quest animated TV series only lasted for one season, spanning 26 episodes, following the aforementioned characters as they tried to stop the evil Dr. Zin. The »
