Cannes gets peek at Hateful Eight, Macbeth, Carol and more

15 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Harvey Weinstein offered a peek at Quentin Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday as the movie mogul previewed the Weinstein Co.'s upcoming slate.

The annual presentation to media and industry members featured a handful of films that will premiere at Cannes in the coming days: Todd Haynes' 1950s drama Carol and a Macbeth adaption with Michael Fassbender andMarion Cotillard. One of the Cannes festival jury members, Jake Gyllenhaal, was also on hand to preview his boxing drama with director Antoine FuquaSouthpaw.

But probably the most anticipated, previously unseen film among the Weinstein Co.'s offerings was a two-minute trailer of Tarantino's latest. In the footage, the snowy, gun-blazing Western evoked Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs in its gathering of a group of tough characters. Its large cast includes a number of familiar Tarantino players: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, »

Image acquires 'Criminal Activities'

13 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: The distributor has acquired North American and UK rights to the John Travolta thriller, which Diamond Pictures is selling on the Croisette.

Jackie Earle Haley directs Criminal Activities from a screenplay by Robert Lowell about four young men who fall foul of the mob when they follow a tip-off.

Haley also stars alongside Dan Stevens, Michael Pitt, Christopher Abbott, Rob Brown and Edi Gathegi.

“This is a smart, witty, extremely commercial thriller with elements of Boiler Room and Reservoir Dogs and an ending you don’t see coming,” said Mark Ward, chief acquisitions officer for the Image brands at Image parent company Rlj Entertainment. “We’re excited to bring this film with a star-studded cast to the big screen.”

Image plans an autumn theatrical release on the film after Ward and Matt Hooper brokered the deal with Wme Global.

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1987

13 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...

Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.

What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »

Here’s Your First Batch Of Official Images From Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’

11 May 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hot off the release of that impressive cover back last week, Entertainment Weekly have given us nine first-look images from the production of Quentin tarantino’s upcoming The Hateful Eight. The western, which will be released in November of this year, stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Channing Tatum, James Parks and Zoe Bell, and has been described as a potential homage to Tarantino’s debut Reservoir Dogs.

That quote came from Madsen, who appeared in the 1992 materpiece as Mr Brown.

“It’s one of those pictures where nobody really knows who anyone really is. It’s kind of a masquerade party.” Madsen said to EW.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his »

'Hateful Eight' Photos Tease Deadly Standoff in Tarantino's Western

8 May 2015 10:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just hours after The Hateful Eight character portraits debuted, we have even more images from director Quentin Tarantino's Western. These photos also include commentary with the cast members, who offer new insight into their characters in The Hateful Eight. With all of these photos debuting over the past few days, hopefully we'll get to see the first full trailer sometime soon, since the Western debuts in just six short months.

Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and »

Skin Trade Review

8 May 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dolph Lundgren hasn’t enjoyed the same continued prominence as many of his equally hulking, stone-jawed peers – unlike Arnie, who has a new Terminator out this summer, or Sylvester Stallone, who’ll play Rocky again for fall spinoff Creed, the towering Swede has been contained to bargain-bin fare and occasional cameos in The Expendables. And though no one is contesting his ability to throw a punch, Lundgren still hasn’t had his True Lies moment, so to speak.

I wish I could report that Skin Trade was that watershed for the actor, that perfect part to elevate him from man-mountain to dramatic heavyweight – but it’s just not the case. As vengeful New Jersey cop Nick Cassidy, Lundgren is working well within his wheelhouse, and the ease with which the performer manages his dialogue speaks to how standard a part Skin Trade gives him. That shouldn’t come as a surprise – after all, »

First Images From The Hateful Eight Tease The Stacked Cast

8 May 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Yesterday brought our first look at The Hateful Eight via Entertainment Weekly’s cover, but now that the magazine has hit stands, seven new shots from the Quentin Tarantino-directed Western are available for your viewing pleasure.

Highlighted by the new images are stars Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Samuel L. Jackson, all dressed up in some ridiculous outfits. The print edition of Entertainment Weekly also provided some further insights into the pic, with Jason Leigh saying of the relationship between her collared outlaw and Kurt Russell’s bounty hunter that the pair “are essentially the most dysfunctional couple since Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” If the two character are romantically involved, as hinted by the actress’ hand on Russell’s shoulder in the cover shot, it’s certainly easy to see how that could be the case.

Get Your First Look at Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight Cast

7 May 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Quentin Tarantino's next Western, The Hateful Eight, is due to come out this Fall, but we've seen precious little of the movie - remember that teaser that was stylish but had no new footage in it? Well, Entertainment Weekly has the pleasure of unveiling The Hateful Eight cast - well, three of them anyway. Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Kurt Russell are looking tough, dirty, and why yes, a little bit hateful. EW also got some scoop from Tarantino about the film, which revolves around some of the West's notorious gunslingers. He promisingly compares it to one of his own iconic films, Reservoir Dogs. "[The Hateful Eight has] a bunch of guys in a room who can't trust each other. That wasn't a marching order when I sat down to write the script, but pretty quickly I realized this is kind of a nice coming-full-circle." This first look is definitely exciting, »

The Hateful Eight Revealed On New EW Cover

7 May 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What a relief it is that Quentin Tarantino went ahead with The Hateful Eight, even after a nasty episode involving a script leak that was once thought to have turned the director off the project for good. After licking his wounds, the director found that he still felt strongly enough about the story to proceed, and as a result, this fall is about to get rocked by a tornado of bloody, badass mayhem – the kind only Tarantino could dream up.

Today brings our first look at The Hateful Eight, via an unveiled cover for Entertainment Weekly. Teasing the appearances of Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kurt Russell, the image doesn’t give much of anything away about the Western, but rest assured that EW’s cover story will delve deep into what exactly audiences can expect to get from The Hateful Eight when it opens later this year. »

The Hateful Eight EW Cover Offers First Look at Quentin Tarantino’s Latest

7 May 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We've seen a Hateful Eight behind-the-scenes image courtesy of Samuel L. Jackson, but how about your very first look at Jackson, Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh in costume for the film's EW cover? The image features Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, a union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, Russell as bounty hunter John Ruth and Leigh as his fugitive, Daisy Domergue. They're part of a group of "the West’s nastiest gunslingers" forced to seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery during a blizzard. According to the EW report, The Hateful Eight is packed with squibs and gunshots, but it's more intimate than Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. Here's what Tarantino told the outlet about the production and why it's similar to Reservoir Dogs: “For me it has more of a Western Iceman Cometh kind of vibe about it ... A bunch of guys in a room who can’t trust each other. »

The Wolfpack Review [IFFBoston 2015]

28 April 2015 11:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Documentaries are particularly wonderful as a genre in how often they introduce viewers to people that they’d otherwise have about as much of a chance of meeting as they’d have of landing on the moon.

Case in point: the Angulo clan, subjects of Crystal Moselle’s intriguing and often unsettling The Wolfpack, live in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, but it’s a wonder that even Moselle came across them. The family’s seven children (six boys and one girl, all with hair tumbling down to their waists) were raised almost exclusively within the confines of a four-bedroom apartment. Their father held the sole key to the front door, and he kept it locked. Home schooled by their mother and educated by a vast assortment of movies borrowed from the library and bought at a discounted price, the children were barely ever allowed outside during their formative years. »

Despite Expense, Film School Remains the Best Option for Young Cineastes

28 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For aspiring, young filmmakers, there are generally two modern-day archetypes of Hollywood heroes. The first is the George Lucas model: majored in film at USC, became a global pioneer in the use of digital filmmaking and went on to create cinematic history’s most iconic sci-fi franchise of all time in “Star Wars.” The second is the Quentin Tarantino model: dropped out of high school, worked in a video store and, in 1992, wrote and directed the cult classic indie crime drama “Reservoir Dogs.”

Two celebrated filmmakers, two very different roads to success.

But the landscape of filmmaking has changed so dramatically over the past several decades — a short posted on YouTube can launch a bigscreen career, while “Tangerine,” a breakout hit at this year’s Sundance fest, was shot entirely on an iPhone 5S — and fledgling screenwriters, producers and directors are faced with a dizzying number of choices as to how to pursue their careers. »

Karlovy Vary unveils 50th plans

28 April 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mel Gibson to film special trailer for the festival; plans for Lebanese cinema focus and tributes to late Us actor John Cazale and Chris Penn.

The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (Kviff) has unveiled plans for its 50th ‘annivarysary’ edition, set to run July 3-11.

The jubilee edition will include a look at recent Lebanese cinema, a retrospective of late Soviet-Ukrainian director Larisa Shepitko’s work and tributes to Us actors John Cazale and Chris Penn.

Actor-director Mel Gibson will also film a special trailer for the festival, set to be shot in Los Angeles in early May. The Lethal Weapon star received the Crystal Globe for Outstanding Artistic Contribution to World Cinema at last year’s Kviff.

Gibson continues a tradition that sees the recipients of this award feature in a short trailer for the following festival. It will be written and directed by Martin Krejčí, who has collaborated with Ivan Zachariáš since the beginning of the »

Karlovy Vary Prepares to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

28 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Prague — Building on a “you’re the star” theme, the Karlovy Vary Film Festival’s 50th edition will kick off with a massive street party July 3, serenaded by Czech rockers and forgoing the usual formal do at the spa town’s fabulously ornate Grandhotel Pupp.

“It won’t be a festival like we’ve had before,” said Eva Zaoralova, the fest’s former artistic director, noting the spirit of inclusiveness planned for Karlovy Vary’s fans, which will include open-air screenings and images of festgoers on the event poster unveiled in Prague on Tuesday.

Tributes will honor actors John Cazale (1935-1978), who portrayed the luckless Fredo Corleone in “The Godfather” franchise and also starred in “Dog Day Afternoon” and “The Deer Hunter,” and Chris Penn (1965-2006), who appeared in “Rumble Fish,” “Reservoir Dogs” and “Short Cuts.”

There is also a tribute to Ukrainian auteur filmmaker Larisa Shepitko, whose works “Heat, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Party with the Wolfpack brothers: the new breed of documentary film stars

27 April 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

They spent their childhoods locked up. Now it’s VIP parties, red carpets and adoring fans for the Wolfpack brothers. But should today’s documentaries really be making celebrities of their subjects?

The stars were out in force at this year’s Sundance film festival, with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt and Lena Dunham all looking great in down jackets on Main Street. But there was an alternate galaxy, if you will, another cast of characters who also smiled for the paparazzi and caused adoring fans to swoon. They were the subjects of the festival’s documentaries – and they included a Texas cattleman, autistic teens, former Scientologists and an ex-porn star.

Also in attendance were the “stars” of The Wolfpack, a documentary about the Angulos, six brothers and one sister who were home-schooled by their mother and virtually imprisoned by their domineering, paranoid father for more than 10 years »

Watch: Quentin Tarantino Supercut Highlights the Filmmaker’s Driving Shots

22 April 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A Quentin Tarantino film is unmistakable, and for good reason. The filmmaker has developed a signature style over the years that carries with it a number of tropes that are quintessentially Tarantino, including plenty of driving shots. With that in mind, Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has now taken it upon himself to put together a supercut of all the driving shots from Tarantino’s filmography, from Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained (yes, there’s a driving shot in Django Unchained). It’s a fun video that serves to highlight Tarantino’s technique while also reinforcing his talent behind the camera, with some of the same shots being repurposed in multiple films and others serving as one-offs. It also reminds me that, while maybe not as great as the rest of his filmography, Death Proof is an underrated oddity that I must revisit soon. Watch the Quentin Tarantino supercut video below, »
