"Here's what makes 70mm so glorious!" Still confused by the "roadshow" version of The Hateful Eight? The Weinstein Company has released a featurette explaining the story behind why Quentin Tarantino wanted to shoot this film in 65mm ultra-panavision and how they're planning to release it in 70mm in certain theaters around the country. The video features Tarantino plus Samuel L. Jackson, cinematographer Robert Richardson, and many others. They explain that this roadshow is basically a big, special occasion that features an overture, and an intermission, and a playbill and everything. This is awesome and I'm glad they finally released this video for The Hateful Eight, the 11th feature shot in ultra-panavision. Do not miss. Featurette on the 70mm roadshow for Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, on YouTube (via The Film Stage): Watch the most recent trailer for The Hateful Eight here. More info on the official website here.

Trier follows in the footsteps of Quentin Tarantino, who won the Bronze Horse for best film twice, with “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction.” Trier won his first Stockholm prize for “Oslo, August 31” in 2011.
The festival’s opening film, Jonas Carpignano’s “Mediterranea,” nabbed three prizes, for best debut and best actor (Koudous Seihon) and the Telia Film Award, granting 100.000 Skr to a distributor who picks up the film in Sweden.
Deniz Gamze Ergüven and Alice Winocour scooped the award for best script for “Mustang,” whereas László Nemes was dubbed best director for his Cannes hit “Son of Saul.” Best cinematography was awarded to Manuel Dacosse for Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s “Evolution. »

Funkily off-topic conversations, Mexican stand-offs and other Tarantino tropes are all here in the violent thriller he scripted and Tony Scott directed in 1993
Quentin Tarantino’s excellent screenplay for his violent thriller True Romance (now on rerelease) was given a glossy, high-energy, if conventional treatment by Tony Scott in 1993, a year after Tarantino’s debut as a fully fledged writer-director with Reservoir Dogs. Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette play Clarence and Alabama, two sexy young lovers who hit the road with cocaine belonging to Alabama’s pimp.

Hollywood is remaking male buddy movies with all-women casts – but the fact the opposite trick wouldn’t work shows masculinity is movies’ default setting
Hollywood has suddenly decided that the key to promoting diversity while ensuring safe box office is to gender-swap old movies. In 2016, the remade Ghostbusters will replace Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon. An Ocean’s 11 reboot will replace George Clooney with Sandra Bullock, and the male team of heist specialists with a female team of heist specialists.
There are tons of other classics which could easily be retooled in the same fashion. Reservoir Dogs is another male bro heist drama which could switch to female sis heist drama. This is Spinal Tap could have an all-female band. Star Wars, Fellowship of the Ring, The Untouchables, The Guns of Navarrone … there are countless movies with men teaming up to be manly together. »

Terminator Genisys Honest Trailer
This week, Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers crew breaks down the summer flop Terminator Genisys, which gleefully skewers how this sequel "ruins" the only good movies in the franchise, recycles numerous lines of dialogue and much more. Despite its box office failure domestically, we reported last month »
No one is ever going to accuse Quentin Tarantino of making a bad movie . because quite frankly he has yet to (in my humble opinion). As he has grown throughout his career, though, many of Tarantino's films have become defined by their longer running time . a decision that has a tendency to polarize some moviegoers. The upcoming The Hateful Eight is expected to be the director.s longest film to date, which begs the question: is that a good or bad thing? It was revealed, during Deadline.s Contenders event, that The Hateful Eight . which is already generating awards buzz . would be Tarantino.s longest film yet at over three hours long. Although it.s not necessarily a linear progression, Quentin Tarantino.s films have very clearly gotten longer in length as his career has progressed. His freshman foray into the world of cinema . Reservoir Dogs . was by far his »
There’s been some specials and making of documentaries on his productions, but we have yet to get a definitive documentary on the career of Quentin Tarantino. While this is mostly due to the director still making his films — his latest, The Hateful Eight, arrives on Christmas Day in 70mm — a new documentary will take a look at a specific period in his career.
Production has already started on 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino, which takes a look at — you guessed it — the first 21 years of his films, from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2013’s Django Unchained. Directed by Tara Wood, she seemingly takes the same approach as her last co-directing effort, 21 Years: Richard Linklater.
According to Variety, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington will all be interviewed for the project. “Quentin is the most revolutionary, »

According to Variety, the documentary will feature interviews with frequent Tarantino collaborators, including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.
Tara Wood will direct the Quentin Tarantino documentary which follows her work on last year’s similarly themed 21 Years: Richard Linklater, which focussed on the Us director of films like Slacker, Before Sunrise and Boyhood.
“Quentin is the most revolutionary, distinctive director of our time,” said Wood to the trade. “There »

The film will examine the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career and will include interviews with frequent collaborators including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.
Wood is a co-director on last year’s documentary “21 Years: Richard Linklater.” Both films draw upon the idea that the first 21 years of work defines the career of an artist.
Tarantino’s first film was 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” followed by “Pulp Fiction,” “Jackie Brown,” the two “Kill Bill” movies, “Death Proof,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Django Unchained” and the upcoming “The Hateful Eight.”
“Quentin is the most revolutionary, distinctive director of our time,” said Wood. “There is no shortage of stories from his collaborators about what it takes to get his visionary style to the screen. »

The Oscar winner has been making headlines in recent weeks for protesting against police brutality – but he has rarely been shy about airing his views
Quentin Tarantino isn’t just used to courting controversy – he revels in it.
Since first exploding on to the scene in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs, a savagely violent, profane and hilarious crime comedy, the film-maker has never shied away from the issues his critics find unsettling.

Jasmine screens Saturday, November 7th at 5:15 at The Tivoli Theater as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. Director/writer Dax Phelan will be in attendance. Ticket information can be found Here
In this gripping psychological thriller, Leonard To (Jason Tobin, Better Luck Tomorrow) struggles to come to terms with the unsolved murder of Jasmine (Grace Huang, The Man With The Iron Fists), his beloved wife. Nearly a year after Jasmine’s death, Leonard finally returns home to Hong Kong. Determined to begin again, he searches for a new job, attends grief-support meetings, and reconnects with a woman from his past (Eugenia Yuan, Revenge Of The Green Dragons). The unsolved nature of Jasmine’s murder — and the Hong Kong police’s seeming indifference to the case — prevents Leonard from attaining true closure, but he appears to be slowly starting life anew. That progress comes to a sudden halt, »

The year 2015 has already proven itself to be an impressive one for movies, but don't start thinking that you have your personal Top 10 list all figured out. We still have a little less than two months to go before we see the latest entry from Quentin Tarantino - The Hateful Eight - and if the latest trailer is any indication, it should be a contender for a high-ranking slot. The Weinstein Company has released this brand new spot for Tarantino's latest western, and it looks absolutely terrific. The movie takes the writer/director back to his Reservoir Dogs roots - trapping a bunch of not-so-lovely people in a room together - and it looks like it will be a beautiful, dialogue-and-action heavy cinematic adventure. The eighth film from Quentin Tarantino (counting Kill Bill as one feature), The Hateful Eight begins in the years just following the Civil War, and centers »
Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to controversy.
Since bursting on the scene with “Reservoir Dogs” in 1992, the video store geek turned cinematic bad boy, has inspired blowback over everything from the use of racial slurs in his films to his penchant for disposing of his characters in gruesome fashion. But nothing has prepared him for the firestorm he’s unleashed over the last few days.
Tarantino’s appearance at an Oct. 24 rally in New York against police brutality led to boycott threats by law enforcement unions of his next film, “The Hateful Eight.”
Tarantino inspired their ire by remarking at the event,”When I see murder I cannot stand by. And I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
And his comments at the gathering have kicked off a media backlash, landing him in the crosshairs of conservative pundits like Bill »

If the hysterical overreaction by police unions across the country weren’t enough of a sign that Quentin Tarantino was right to speak out at last month’s Rise Up October protest, then surely the rumors about Harvey Weinstein’s reaction would be. The distributor may not be chastising Tarantino publicly, but Weinstein is said to be furious with the director for attending the New York rally, where he joined with other marchers in condemning police brutality — all just two months before the Dec. 25 unveiling of Tarantino’s much-anticipated new thriller, “The Hateful Eight.” With box office returns and award nominations waiting to be collected, this was apparently no time to incur a nationwide boycott — or, for that matter, to take a tough public stand on matters of grave moral and sociopolitical importance.
Such controversy is not new to Tarantino. Indeed, the words “such controversy is not new to Tarantino »

Yesterday, it was announced that the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards would be the first to honor Quentin Tarantino’s last movie The Hateful Eight. The film is being cited with an honor for its entire ensemble cast, which is a compliment not just to Tarantino, but to a number of Academy Award hopefuls as well. The flick is still by and large unseen by all but a few, so its Oscar prospects are still a bit up in the air. That being said, citations like this one make me think that Qt could have another award winner on his hands here in The Hateful Eight. In any event, it’s time now for another installment of the Hollywood Film Awards series! Here’s the official honor being bestowed on the film… “Hollywood Ensemble Award” The Hateful Eight, by Quentin Tarantino Who is in the cast that shares in this particular honor? »

The New York Police Department officer union has called for a citywide boycott of Quentin Tarantino's films following comments the director made during a rally against police brutality on Saturday. Speaking at the RiseUpOctober protest in New York's Washington Square Park, the filmmaker told the crowd concerning police brutality, "This is not being dealt with in any way at all. That's why we are out here. If it was being dealt with, then these murdering cops would be in jail or at least be facing charges."
The filmmaker added, »
