Samuel L. Jackson Tweets Behind-the-Scenes Images from Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

1 hour ago

What a difference a year makes.  At the beginning of 2014, Quentin Tarantino shelved The Hateful Eight after a draft of the script was leaked online.  But as the year has progressed, Tarantino has gone from suing over the leak to having a staged reading to casting and is now ready to film entirely in Colorado next month.  Samuel L. Jackson is once again reuniting with Tarantino, and tweeted a couple images from behind the scenes.  Admittedly, there’s nothing major here—no costumes or sets—but it is nice to see the assembled cast and have a reminder we’re getting a new Tarantino movie next year. Hit the jump to check out The Hateful Eight images.  The film also stars Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Channing Tatum, Demian Bichir, and Bruce DernThe Hateful Eight opens late 2015. Via Samuel L. Jackson. H8ful Eight rehearsal! »

The Walking Dead Recap: “Crossed”

2 hours ago

AMC's The Walking Dead will enjoy its mid-season finale next weekend, so tonight's episode was all about the setup, as you might have expected.  Before they take a two-month break, however, Rick & Company have quite a bit of work to do.  There are two of their own who are currently in the hands of some crazed hospital employees, and any wrong moves could cost numerous lives.  While there's a good chance that next week's hour will end in a frustrating cliffhanger, at least tonight's penultimate run put all the pieces in place. Hit the jump for The Walking Dead recap. When first we begin "Crossed," most of our heroes are still under the same church roof.  It doesn't stay that way for long.  Sasha is chopping up the church pews (and working out some frustration) while Tyreese and Daryl are pulling the pipe organ apart; they’re using the pieces »

The Affair Recap: “7″

2 hours ago

In "7," The Affair (both proper noun and otherwise) had a reckoning.  As I've noted all season, one of the things that makes The Affair so engaging, but also so difficult, is how real and natural its dialogue can feel.  The fights and confrontations in "7" were hard to experience, even from a removed perspective, because they had in them such universal truths.  And, while seemingly removed from one another for most of the episode, Alison and Noah's stories both followed similar structures.  Hit the jump for why "it's the end of summer, are you heading back to Gotham soon?" The parallels between the revelation of the affair were strikingly similar in both stories this week.  For Noah, it was Oscar's threats that led him to confide in Max and ask for  the $10,000 loan (or gift, really, as there's no way Noah could pay him back).  Max advised him not to tell Helen, »

Read the Star Wars Original Opening Crawl Before It Was Finessed by Brian De Palma

2 hours ago

You can’t have Star Wars without the opening crawl, and I admit I’ll be excited on December 18, 2015 when Star Wars: The Force Awakens appears on screen followed by the first new crawl text in ten years.  Like all other aspects of almost any other production, Star Wars: A New Hope went through plenty of tweaks, and the opening crawl was among them.  The original screenplays for the trilogy are fascinating (Star Wars: The Annotated Scripts is a great read), and a page from a 1976 draft recently found its way online.  The opening crawl presented in this draft isn’t drastically different from what’s in the final film—the gist is the same—but George Lucas, with the help of friend Brian De Palma, were able to finesse the language and make it read better. Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars original opening »

Homeland Recap: “There’s Something Else Going On”

3 hours ago

"There's Something Else Going On" was another incredible, tense, and twisted hour from Homeland that stuck to what the show does best: political posturing and CIA business.  It's not surprising that almost all of this season's best episodes have done away with the soap opera elements (Carrie's "trip" through the city ignited a few, they were contained in her mind, so they get a pass).  "There's Something Else Going On" showed just how difficult and sprawling this war has gotten, and that, as Carrie said last week, even the right choices are wrong.  Hit the jump for "what the fuck?  What the fucking fuck??" You have to know by now that when any character says, "bring him home alive," he's not coming home alive.  And not one, but two characters said that to Carrie in "There's Something Else Going On:" Mira and Martha.  It raised the stakes to incredible heights »
