Comic-Con 2015: The Hateful Eight Panel Report

11 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Doing things his way has often meant Quentin Tarantino doing the things his revered filmmaking forebears did back in the day. Things that have been mothballed by modern studios with their obsession with 3D, eye on new markets and digital tech. Things like giving their new movie a Us roadshow theatrical release on Christmas day, complete with 70mm projection, interval and prelude music. Samuel L. Jackson, absent with filming commitments but appearing via the magic of pre-record, revealed that, like in the days of Spartacus, El Cid and Battle Of The Bulge, The Hateful Eight will be released in the most spectacular format possible. Continuing that sense of movie heritage was news that the great Ennio Morricone will be scoring the film, his first Western score in four decades.So it was that Hall H found itself treated to The Hateful Eight panel that was part footage premiere, part history lesson. »

Kurt Vonnegut Documentary Gets Final Push From Director Robert Weide

13 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In this season of World War II anniversaries, director Robert Weide is highlighting one with a literary twist involving author Kurt Vonnegut.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Allied firebombing of Dresden, a massive attack in the final months of the war that leveled the German city and produced tens of thousands of casualties. Vonnegut endured the Dresden bombing while being held by the Germans as a prisoner of war, having been captured after fighting in the Battle of the Bulge as an Army private. The experience of being held prisoner in an underground meat locker inspired Vonnegut’s landmark 1969 novel “Slaughterhouse-Five.”

Earlier this week Weide launched a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to finally finish the documentary “Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time,” on which he’s been working for nearly 30 years.

Weide, who is known for his work on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and for the Oscar-nommed 1998 doc “Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth »

Why ‘American Sniper’ Is a Coming Out Party for Patriotism (Guest Blog)

22 January 2015 7:26 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Moviegoers can finally enjoy a film with a genuine hero who served his country and fought in a righteous war

The New England Patriots spent this past weekend earning a spot in the Super Bowl. But many more patriots went to the movies and propelled “American Sniper” to a record-setting January box office weekend.

In doing so, they officially declared war against the likes of Michael Moore, Seth Rogen and so many liberal, peace loving, pot-smoking A-listers and Hollywood suits who, since the 1970s, have had an ambivalent, if not disdainful relationship with war movies in general, and American patriotism in particular. »
