43 minutes ago

Quentin Tarantino.s The Hateful Eight has taken an unusual path to production . even by Tarantino.s outside-the-box standards. For a while, this was going to be his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Django Unchained, keeping the writer-director in spaghetti Western mode. Then, as you might recall, the script leaked. and all hell broke loose. But the project appears to be back on track, and the poster above suggests a 2015 release date is in the cards. Empire shares the image above, clarifying that Quentin Tarantino.s eighth picture will be the revenge epic The Hateful Eight, with a crimson-colored 2015 in the corner to get fans. hopes up.

Wesley Snipes Wants To Make Blade 4

2 hours ago

Wesley Snipes' movie career was briefly derailed when he was sent to prison in 2010 over tax evasion. But he's out and raring to rev up his action hero status once more, first with The Expendables 3, then possibly with Blade 4. Speaking with MTV, Snipes was quick to dip into his Blade voice upon request, and when asked if he'd consider reprising the role of the dhampir dead-set on slaying vampires, Snipes was clearly enthusiastic about the idea. He said: "I'd be open to it. You know I think we got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude for us to build on. I'd love to get back in the suit and do some things that I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then. I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. You know, some of the things that »

Simon Pegg Responds To Rumor He's In Star Wars: Episode VII

2 hours ago

Simon Pegg's nerd cred is partially built on a deep and vocal hatred of Star Wars: Episodes I-iii. But could he be turning a new leaf in its legacy by joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII? That's the rumor. And now he's weighing in. While Comic-Con didn't give us some of the revelations we expected (Shazam!), Pegg's Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch dropped a potential bombshell when he implied in an MTV interview that Simon Pegg would be re-teaming with Star Trek director J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: Episode VII. But what does Pegg say? Well, Vulture caught up with him at a NY screening of Hector and the Search for Happiness, where he responded to the rumor by saying: "Well, J.J. uses me in different roles, and we.re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people »

This Week In Home Entertainment: Noah, Twin Peaks And More

13 hours ago

Noah Blu-ray Darren Aronofsky has proven throughout his career that he is capable of stunning visuals and unique storytelling. The director needed both when pursuing the massive movie project, Noah, a story about a biblical flood and thousand of creatures sheltered by one family during the darkest of times. Aronofsky mostly pulls it off, telling a compelling biblical tale with ties to nature, and even monsters of a sort. Noah isn.t the family-friendly story people only familiar with the title might expect. Early on, we are introduced to a young Noah, who witnesses the death of his father at the hands of a sinning man named Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone). As a grown-up, Noah (Russell Crowe) strives to live by the more earthly tenets his father taught them, tenets he then teaches his own wife (Jennifer Connelly) and sons (Logan Lerman, Douglass Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll). He begins to »

Fast & Furious 7 Just Got Fancier In The Form Of An Iggy Azalea Cameo

13 hours ago

The Fast & Furious franchise is supposed to be fun. With fast cars, beautiful women, insane stunts and chaotic action, the movies are supposed to be fun escapes. Unfortunately, the death of co-lead actor Paul Walker flipped the script on Fast & Furious 7 and pushed the production into a much darker territory. Thanks to the help of Walker.s brothers and a can-do spirit, however, the franchise is emerging from the darkness and ready to start having fun again, which is probably why they.re giving fans a really fun cameo. You know Iggy Azalea? Yes, you know who she is. She.s in the fast lane from La to Tokyo (Nsfw). Yeah, that girl. Well, she apparently brought her charm, rapping skills and physical presence to the set of Fast & Furious 7, where she shot some kind of footage. Exactly what sort of role she.ll play is unclear, but Vin Diesel »

Watch Samuel L. Jackson Repeatedly Drop The Mother Of All Curse Words In This Superb Supercut

13 hours ago

I mother-think it goes without mother-saying that this mother-video is Nsfw. It.s hard not to have a rock solid opinion about Samuel L. Jackson. There is absolute fandom, or there is absolute unfandom; the middle ground is as absent as Mace Windu.s hand. A lot of that comes from the kinds of films that Jackson stars in, which are generally features where the term "motherfucker" can be thrown around willy nilly, and there.s usually a dead body or twelve involved. (His foul mouth is noticeably absent from his Nick Fury appearances and films like Jurassic Park and The Incredibles, but just imagine the possibilities.) As such, the above video will either appeal to you immensely, or it will offend you. And if you clicked on this video knowing that it would offend you, you some kinda dumb motherfucker. Sorry. None of you are dumb motherfuckers. I got »

Batman v Superman's Comic-Con Footage Will Not Be Officially Released

15 hours ago

There are two different kinds of San Diego Comic-Con trailers. The first category is filled by those that make their debut in Hall H, Ballroom 20, or one of the other big venues in the San Diego Convention Center, and then officially find their way online either immediately after the panel or a few days later. The second category, however, is made up of the reels that nobody outside of the expo's attendees are supposed to see. This unfortunately usually includes the biggest blockbusters showing their stuff at the convention, and in the case of this year's festivities, that means Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Variety has confirmed that Warner Bros. has no plans to release the first ever teaser footage from the DC Comics movie, which was shown twice during the studio's Hall H presentation this past Saturday morning. The trade got the official word from Sue Kroll, president »

Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Reveals Two Classic Movies That Will Inspire His Film

16 hours ago

If you aren't already excited for Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie, you're in good need of an attitude adjustment. Back in 2005, the young director exploded on the scene with his fantastic debut Brick, and has since brought us stylish and creative thrillers like The Brothers Bloom and Looper - not to mention some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad. Sadly we still have a long time to wait until his vision actually makes its way to theaters, but the filmmaker is already hard at work finding inspiration for what his movie will be. A guest on the 500th episodes of the Filmspotting podcast (via Chicago Sun Times), Johnson explained to the hosts that he can't tell anyone about what he's working on ("I.m really excited about all the things I can.t tell you"), but over the course of the interview he revealed that he and his »

Is Katee Sackhoff Getting Closer To Joining Marvel?

18 hours ago

With all this recent chatter about introducing more female superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many comic book movie fans have found themselves repeating one name: Katee Sackhoff. The actress has a large sci-fi fanhood following thanks to her time playing Starbuck on the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, and many of those same people want to see her take on more big genre pictures - making Marvel a natural fit. Of course, it's all dreams and speculation until news comes down officially from Marvel, but at the very least Sackhoff does seem to be sticking close to the Marvel family. Earlier today, the actress posted an update for her fans on her Twitter page and revealed that she will soon be meeting up with one of the most important people in Marvel Comics history: I'm wearing red leather to my meeting with @TheRealStanLee today, sorta just seemed appropriate..

Disney's Jungle Book Snares Christopher Walken And Giancarlo Esposito

18 hours ago

Disney has been putting a lot of effort into creating an enticing ensemble for their live-action re-imagination of The Jungle Book. The latest addition to the cast is a pair of heralded and established performers. Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) has signed on along with Giancarlo Esposito, who earned an Emmy nomination for his work as Gus Fring on the highly-acclaimed TV drama Breaking Bad. Director Jon Favreau has pulled together an incredible cast that not only includes Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito, but also Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Ben Kingsley and newcomer Neel Sethi. Disney first adapted Rudyard Kipling's novel about a boy raised in the jungle back in 1967, as a cartoon musical. Favreau's version will replace the hand-drawn animals for computer-generated ones, who will likely have a photo-realistic look. Only Neel Sethi will appear in the movie in the flesh, as he »

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Set Photos Show Off Some Massive Destruction

20 hours ago

Saw some other damage.. but probably not due to weather! #BatmanVSuperman pic.twitter.com/fP5Fo7rwBA. The Bananadoctor (@Bananadoc) July 29, 2014 While there were many out there who were a little perturbed by the immense destruction featured at the end of Man of Steel, it will probably only slightly diminish the amount of action featured in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Collateral damage will surely be kept to a minimum, but various objects in various environments - buildings, parked vehicles, lamp posts, etc. - will be open season. Don't believe me? Just check out these new photos from the set. Posted by Twitter user @Bananadoc and discovered by JoBlo, the new show us that something very, very bad is going down in Metropolis. While my first instinct was to think that this is damage caused by fisticuffs between the Dark Knight and the Man of Tomorrow, »

Alexandre Aja Still Trying To Bring Japanese Manga Series Cobra To The Big Screen

20 hours ago

Alexandre Aja is likely best associated with horror. With directing credits that include The Hills Have Eyes, Maniac and Piranha, not to mention the upcoming feature adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns, Aja continues to make a name for himself within the genre. But we learned a few years back that the director has his sights on an ambitious sci-fi project. When we sat down with him at Comic-Con to talk about his work, he gave us an update on his efforts to bring the Japanese manga series Cobra -- also known as Space Cobra, unrelated to G.I. Joe -- to the big screen. From the sound of it, this is a project with a very big budget, and thusly requires a very big star to take the lead. "It's a huge, huge project. Super expensive. Like $150 million-plus," Aja told us, when we asked what the progress was on the »

How Guardians Of The Galaxy Triumphed Over The Film Industry's Backwards Thinking

20 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy is poised to be one of the biggest movies of 2014. Through a string of fun and energizing trailers, it has scored an avalanche of fan enthusiasm online. Its cast is insanely charismatic, and Guardians of the Galaxy is gaining major praise, being called (by some) the greatest science-fiction movie since Star Wars. And yet it almost didn't happen this way at all. In a profile piece for Time, Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman revealed why. But to understand how Guardians of the Galaxy came to be a cinematic force to reckoned with it is, you first need to know about Perlman. Enamored by rocket science and science fiction from an early age, Nicole Perlman wrote her first spec script about physicist Richard Feynman, and it won her a spot on Variety's coveted Writers To Watch list of 2006. She garnered buzz penning a pair of »

Watch The Divergent Scene That Had To Be Deleted Due To Violence

22 hours ago

Divergent made a nice chunk of change when it was released this past March, and pretty much assured itself three more years at the box office with its follow up installments. What was interesting about this film's success is that it was built on a book that really didn't seem cut out for a "one size fits all" young adult adaptation. As we've now learned today, the final product was trimmed just to do that and the original cut would have retained one of the key moments of violence from the text. Yahoo scored the Divergent clip from the upcoming home video release's collection of deleted scenes. Among those scenes is one of the most important scenes setting up Peter (Miles Teller's antagonist) as a psychotic menace rather than the smart assed wimp that we got in the film. In the book, Peter actually stabs a kid in the »

Maze Runner Trailer Reveals The Future Is One Big Death Trap

22 hours ago

Man, what is up with teens and dystopian futures? Nearly all the Ya adaptations we've seen lately take place in a dark world where kids live under the totalitarian rule. The new trailer for The Maze Runner seems to fortify that worldview, with the young protagonist thrust into a world not of his own making, where he must survive with only the help of his new, mysterious friends and his own wits. Unlike The Giver, however, he doesn't have wise old Jeff Bridges to help him out. This is actually a pretty great trailer, building the suspense and mystery and leading into some diverse, well-shot action sequences. Obviously there's someone out there posing a menace, but also there's the maze itself, which offers the illusion of escape. Late in the trailer, the money shot seems to be the whole environment rising and re-shaping itself as if it were a giant »

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster Hits Too Close To 9/11 For Many

22 hours ago

There are certain movies that seem to court controversy. They find a polarizing subject, and they release marketing materials in order to generate headlines. Stirring the pot is the basic marketing strategy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not one of those movies. In fact, the flick.s basic existence is likely owed to good vibes and the marketing power of nostalgia. Unfortunately, controversy has still followed the movie at every turn, and now, thanks to an ill-advised marketing choice, the headlines are continuing. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to be released on August 8th in the United States. It will follow a little more than a month later in Australia. More specifically, it will follow on September 11th, a date which holds great significance as a result of the terrorist attacks on New York City. Whoever put together the marketing materials, however, didn.t necessarily make that connection, and »

Star Wars: Episode VII Filming Might Endanger The Future Of Irish Birds

23 hours ago

Well, of all the headlines you could possibly imagine Star Wars: Episode VII might earn ahead of its release, I bet the above is not one you would have come up with. Nonetheless, hot on the tail of news that the next Star Wars installment will be shooting on location on Ireland's lush and lovely island Skellig Michael, comes outrage from conservationists concerned about how filming might impact the local wildlife. The Guardian reports Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII has run afoul of wildlife conservationists who worry the big productions occupation of Skellig Michael island will disturb the breeding season of its native birds. Their fear is that the coming year could see a troublesome drop in the population of puffins, manx shearwaters, storm petrels, peregrine falcons and guillemots who typically use the remote island for their mating season, which is going on right now. Here are some puffins in »
