New on DVD and Blu-ray
"22 Jump Street"
Can Chris Miller and Phil Lord make anything entertaining? When "21 Jump Street" the movie was announced, it seemed utterly ludicrous, if not downright insulting. Yet here we are enjoying the sequel, digging on the continued doofy adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum). What's next, a dazzling movie about Legos?!
"20,000 Days on Earth"
This documentary about writer and musician Nick Cave is just as weird and wonderful as its subject. It's a must-see for fans of Cave's oeuvre, but even if you don't know a Boy Next Door from a Bad Seed, you'll get a kick out of this strange film. Featuring appearances by Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, Warren Ellis, and Blixa Bargeld.

Update: Channing Tatum is now confirmed for a role along with Demian Bichir. Click here for the full, updated report and official plot synopsis. Quentin Tarantino was on with Craig Ferguson at the end of last week (watch here) and told the late night host the first read through for his new movie The Hateful Eight would actually take place at the beginning of this week. I heard that and assumed we might be getting some final casting information on the film shortly and it seems that just might be the case. Deadline reports Channing Tatum is circling a "major role" in the film, though the role, obviously, is unknown. The site lists the confirmed cast as Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and Tim Roth, but the casting around this one has been so confused from the start, following that Los Angeles live reading, »

Tarantino held a live script read of the film in Hollywood earlier this year with various actors, many of whom are expected to reprise their roles in the screen version. Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are all said to already be onboard for the film.
However, table read participants James Parks, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Denis Menochet, Zoe Bell and James Remar aren't confirmed as yet. Jennifer Jason Leigh is set though and is believed to be taking on the role that Tamblyn played in the table read.
It's thought Tatum's role is also a major one and would see him taking over from one of the table read participants who isn't showing up for the film. Tatum reportedly has some »

White House Down and Magic Mike’s very own Channing Tatum is said to be targeting a role in Quentin Tarantino’s next western The Hateful Eight. The film, which is about to start shooting, already has the likes of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Zoe Bell, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Dana Gourrier, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Denis Menochet, James Parks, James Remar, Tim Roth and Kurt Russell amongst its cast.
Set in snowy Wyoming a few years after the Civil War, the film focuses on the tension among a group of people trapped after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route. The group includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier and a female prisoner (Leigh) in a saloon.
No word on which role Tatum will play, but the fact that he’s attached could bring some commercial certainty to the film. The actor has just finished shooting Magic Mike Xxl, »

While it's not quite clear when Channing Tatum will begin shooting his recently confirmed role in the X-Men spinoff Gambit, he will have some free time in his schedule at the beginning of the year, which he may use to star in The Hateful Eight for director Quentin Tarantino.
The character in question hasn't been revealed, but it is said to be a major role. This only leads to speculation that he will be playing one of the Hateful Eight.
It was originally believed that the cast of the live script read held in Hollywood would be reprising their roles on screen. The latest report confirms that Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are all on board.

I am partial to lists and the ranking of the greatest movies of all time, especially when broken down by genre. With over a hundred years worth of movies to choose from, it can sometimes be daunting to whittle a list down. Plus, any list is up for debate since folks don't always hold the same movies in the same regard. Take for instance this new list from the good folks at Time Out New York. Culled from over fifty "experts" including Danny Trejo, Zoe Bell, John »

This is it, our very last Fun Size Horror short film. We’ve caught a late-night sacred ceremony, heard voices, seen what happens when you pop in the Ninja Masters IV: The Possession VHS, watched two zombie apocalypse survivors go head-to-head, seen a hand with a face on it puke up bad eggs and experienced the wrath of Mr. Hendrix, but now it’s time to find out what horrors Lance Reddick is capable of in “The Collection,” a short about a young woman who’s thrilled to do a modeling session with a famous photographer (Reddick). This one comes from Josh C. Waller who made his feature directorial debut with Raze starring Zoe Bell. He’s also behind the crime drama McCanick with David Morse, Cory Monteith and Mike Vogel and is also busy developing three new projects - a genre-bending action film, another about what it takes to »

When the director held the live reading of his screenplay back in April, Amber Tamblyn read the role of Daisy Domergue, a woman who is wanted for murder and set to hang for her crimes. Jennifer Jason Leigh actually attended the live screenplay reading in Los Angeles, sitting next to The Weinstein Company chairmen Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein along with producer Stacey Sher. The role was one of the most coveted for Hollywood actresses in recent months, with Jennifer Jason Leigh beating out other notable performers such as Michelle Williams, Hilary Swank, Robin Wright and Demi Moore.
With names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank leading the charge when it came to the rumored list of actors lining up to take the lead female role in Quentin Tarantino's next film, The Hateful Eight, it is most likely to come as a surprise to learn that role has gone to none other than Jennifer Jason Leigh. Leigh will take the role of Daisy Domergue, a character portrayed by Amber Tamblyn during Tarantino's live read. While I haven't read the screenplay that began circling the Internet last spring I do know Leigh is older than Tamblyn, which suggests he may have added a few years of wisdom to the character in his rewrites. As for the story, the ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards who run into a Southerner on the road. »

With Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight now firmly back on track – you might recall we chronicled its difficult path to the screen – the writer/director is busy slotting in the remaining cast members he needs. Jennifer Jason Leigh is now aboard to play Daisy Domergue.Set in Wyoming shortly after the Civil War, Qt’s latest is a blood-soaked Western that finds to bounty hunters, a tough female prisoner and a local sheriff waiting out a brutal winter storm that threatens not just frozen fingers but also the arrival of four men who may or may not be trying to free the criminal from the shackles of the law.Tarantino has stacked the cast with past collaborators including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins and Denis Menochet locked in and Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks, Diana Gourrier and Zoe Bell expected to join the violent fun. »
Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…
Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein.
What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »
It’s funny to think that just a few months ago, the idea of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight seeing the light of day was nothing more than a pipe dream. After the film’s script leaked earlier this year, Tarantino stopped production on the film, but quickly calmed down and set the wheels in motion once more. Now, it appears that things are moving ahead even faster than expected, as we’ve just learned that cameras will begin shooting a month earlier than previously reported.
The Denver Post is reporting that The Hateful Eight will film exclusively in Colorado thanks to a $5 million incentive package. This makes Tarantino’s new western the highest-profile pic to shoot in the region since 1969′s True Grit. Now that a location is in place, Tarantino will reportedly begin prep work and start shooting on December 8th at the Schmid Ranch in southwestern Colorado outside of Telluride. »

There have been multiple reports about when director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his revenge Western The Hateful Eight, including a May report that revealed shooting will begin this November in Wyoming, and a story from earlier this month that indicated production will start in January. Today, The Denver Post reports that principal photography will begin on December 8 in southwestern Colorado.
The state of Colorado has put together a $5 million incentive for Quentin Tarantino to bring his project to the state, beating out neighboring states Utah and Wyoming. Colorado's Economic Development Commission approved the incentive package earlier this morning, with state film commissioner David Zuckerman confirming that The Hateful Eight will be shot entirely in Colorado. Here's what he had to say in a statement.
"The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."
Out of the film's $44 million budget, »
Even though the movie won't go into production for another few months, Quentin Tarantino has already provided us with a good idea of who he wants to star in his next feature, The Hateful Eight. This past summer the Django Unchained writer/director hosted a very exclusive live-reading of the script, and helping him bring it to life on stage were the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walt Goggins, and Zoe Bell. While it may very well turn out that all of those stars return to work on the film version, but now new rumors are circulating saying that the filmmaker is looking at yet another big name to join his latest cast. A source has reported to the New York Daily News that Quentin Tarantino was recently spotted at the Greenwich Hotel in New York with History of Violence »
While it was thought that the cast of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight will be made up of those actors who participated in his live stage reading of the screenplay, more actors have since been rumored for the movie. Earlier this summer, it was reported that the acclaimed director was targeting Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence for an unknown role. Now comes word that Viggo Mortensen may also be up for a part in the anticipated thriller.
Quentin Tarantino is said to have been 'boisterously' discussing a role with the Lord of the Rings star out in the open, at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca. The pair were reading from the script, and it was overheard that Viggo Mortensen is wanted for the role of a ruthless gang leader.
The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in November for a late 2015 release. Set and shot in Wyoming, the story »
Everything we’ve heard thus far about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western The Hateful Eight has painted it as another typically ambitious and wild venture from the Pulp Fiction filmmaker. And now that a planned fall 2015 release has been locked down, Tarantino is finally getting around to securing an all-star cast for the pic – though, contrary to some reports, it won’t be identical to the live reading cast, which performed the script last April.
Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson (who did participate in the live reading) are expected to have roles, but Jennifer Lawrence was also reportedly in talks last month. Now, The New York Daily News is reporting that The Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen is also wanted for a major part in The Hateful Eight. The publication writes that Mortensen has been eyed for the role of a “ruthless gang leader.”
Surprisingly, Mortensen and Tarantino have never worked together, »

Zoe Bell’s made a career kicking ass in the movies. Judging by the premise of her new nature gone amok thriller Freshwater, it sounds like she better be ready to add alligator wrestling to her impressive array of fighting skills.
Zoe Bell (Deathproof, Raze) and Joe Lando (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”, “The Secret Circle”) headline writer-director Brandy Berry’s currently in-production Southern fried creature feature entitled Freshwater. Amy Paffrath, John Bobek, and Alison Haislip co-star.
Lake Charles in Louisiana is the idyllic spot to catch some sun and enjoy the tranquil miles of freshwater. When a group of 20-somethings meet up at their island lake house for a weekend of partying, one of the friends never shows up. As more lake visitors are yanked underwater by what seems to be some giant alligators, the screams bring the group out of the lake house. Frantically discovering their boat has drifted away, »
The Weinstein Company announced today that they will distribute Quentin Tarantino's Western The Hateful Eight. Principal photography is slated to begin early next year, with a fall 2015 release being planned.
"We are incredibly excited to begin production on The Hateful Eight, as we know this picture will be as innovative, brash and of course fun as all Quentin projects prior. There is, quite simply, no other filmmaker like him, and we are as proud as ever to continue this partnership that started over twenty years ago."
The Western will be shot on 65Mm film, with the studio planning the widest 70Mm release in over 20 years. The Weinstein Company will also distribute the film in 35Mm and Dcp formats, following the exclusive 70Mm release. The story follows a group »
