How Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez Made Josh Brolin's 'No Country For Old Men' Audition Tape

5 February 2016 9:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You might've heard this story before, but if not, it's pretty nifty little tale to think about before you go see "Hail, Caesar!" this weekend. Before Josh Brolin became a frequent collaborator of Joel and Ethan Coen, he was just another actor trying to get a gig, but sometimes it helps to have some friends in your corner. In this case, it was two heavyweight directors who put the actor on tape, leading to a role that would change everything.  "I was doing 'Grindhouse' with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino and had been told by Sam Shepard that this great book had come out by Cormac McCarthy," Brolin told THR. "I was trying to get a job. It was like, 'Hey, can I [do an audition tape] for this?' [The Coens said,] 'Yes, you can.' Quentin said, 'I’ll direct it,' and Robert said, 'Let me shoot it.' So we did »

Jacob Tremblay Cut the Line to Meet Leonardo DiCaprio Because Adorable 9-Year-Olds Get Away With Everything

2 February 2016 1:06 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jacob Tremblay, star of Room, appeared on his sister's favorite talk show, Ellen, today, and revealed just how he managed to meet Leonardo DiCaprio at the SAG Awards (he cut the line, but it's fine, as long as Leo never called "no cutsies"). At the show, the two wished each other well, but as you might guess, Leo's awards-season luck doesn't go very far. "He won, right? But I didn't win," Tremblay joked. "So if you want to win, you just have to come up to me." Tremblay also said that he wants to be a screenwriter. But please don't green-light his scripts yet, Hollywood. Remember, when Robert Rodriguez based a movie on his kids' ideas, he accidentally launched the career of Taylor Lautner. »

Watch: Josh Brolin on His 'Christ-Like' Character in the Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' (Exclusive)

1 February 2016 12:32 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Josh Brolin, like his "Hail, Caesar!" co-star George Clooney, came into his own as a movie star after years of trudging through less than fab B fare. Brolin credits his mid-career turnaround to Robert Rodriguez on "Grindhouse" which led to the Coen brothers and Oscar-winner "No Country for Old Men" and "True Grit." Brolin has been on a roll (with the occasional "Jonah Hex") ever since, shooting Gus Van Sant's "Milk" (landing a supporting actor nom), Oliver Stone's "W" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,"  and Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger." Brolin is a chiseled American actor who boasts that rare combination: dangerous masculinity and sexy vulnerability. He plays both villains and lovers—see Jason Reitman's sexy "Labor Day." He played a cop with a flat top in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice," and 2015 brought strong turns »

19 January 2016 10:49 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The Slifr Movie Treehouse (the acronym stands in for the title of my blog, Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule) is a place where I like to gather a few of my movie-writing pals and exchange long e-mails on the way the movies shaped up for us in the year just left behind. It’s been a few years since I’ve undertaken this project, but the time felt right again, so I invited the very talented critical voices of Brian Doan, Odie Henderson, Marya Murphy and Phil Dyess-Nugent to take part, and to my great happiness they all agreed. (Bios for each writer can be found at the conclusion of each of their individual posts, which can be accessed by clicking below on the title of each post.)

What follows here are samples from the 16 posts we submitted over the week of January 11-17, and we’ll start »

'From Dusk Till Dawn': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Clooney's Cult Hit

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"From Dusk Till Dawn" looked like a box office misfire for hot young filmmakers Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez when it was released 20 years ago this week (on January 19, 1996). But like the strip-club vampires who ambush the fugitive Gecko brothers, "Dawn" has proven surprisingly resistant to death.

Despite its modest ticket sales, the bloody film became a cult hit that spawned a theatrically-released making-of documentary ("Full Tilt Boogie"), two straight-to-video sequels, and a horror series on Rodriguez's El Rey cable channel that will soon begin its third season. More important, it gave George Clooney his first big break in movies after his TV success on "ER." It also marked the first full-length collaboration between Tarantino and Rodriguez, and gave Salma Hayek the most iconic scene of her career, as a snake-wielding table dancer/queen of the vampires.

In honor of the film turning 20 years old this week, here are 10 things »

Watch: In 'Jonathan Demme Presents: Made in Texas,' Six Films That Influenced a Generation of Indie Filmmakers

15 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Screened at SXSW last year, after a restoration overseen by Demme and festival co-founder Louis Black, the six short films presented together in "Made in Texas" (Ut Press, $19.95) came out of Austin's cultural hothouse of the late '70s and early '80s, when punk/new wave music and avant-garde filmmaking were de rigeur. The result was the creation of a regional space in which innovative, indie cinema could thrive—as evidenced by the steady stream of directors to come out of the U.S. South since, from Texas-born Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, and Wes Anderson to Arkansan Jeff Nichols and the New Orleanian brothers Duplass.  Read More: "SXSW Opens with Austin's Own Richard Linklater"  The films, several of which Demme saw in Austin in 1981 and brought back to New York's Collective for Living Cinema, earned positive notices from the likes of Carrie Rickey and Amy Taubin—and comparisons to Godard and Sirk, »
