Well, that didn’t talk long. Fresh from announcing at the San Diego Comic-Con that he’d decided to move ahead with the project, the first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight has now made its way online…
The Hateful Eight is expected to go into production early next year, and while there’s been no official casting details it is assumed that Tarantino will stick with the cast of his live script reading from earlier in the year, which featured Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Amber Tamblyn, Bruce Dern, James Remar, Dana Hourrier, James Parks, Denis Menochet and Zoe Bell.

Fresh off confirmation straight from the horse’s mouth that The Hateful Eight will be Quentin Tarantino’s next film, we have the very first, official The Hateful Eight poster. Not only is this an excellent piece of artwork that teases the bloody story of the Western, but the poster also confirms a planned 2015 release (likely in December) as well as the fact that Tarantino will shoot the pic in “Super CinemaScope”. We previously heard that Tarantino was aiming to film The Hateful Eight in 70mm, and this poster indeed confirms that we’re in for one epic-looking Western. The story follows a group of passengers on a stagecoach that get caught and trapped in a blizzard, where they’re forced to confront the ratcheting tension that develops. Hit the jump to check out the Hateful Eight poster in full and for more on the film. We now know that »

The Montreal-based Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to run again this year from July 17th-August 5th, and having already boasted a very impressive first wave of films (including a special presentation of James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy), the second wave of films has now been announced, making the festival sounds like an even more impressive place to be next month.

Fantasia 2014 will launch with the Canadian premiere of Jacky In The Kingdom Of Women (Jacky au royaume des filles), a sharp political satire from comic book genius Riad Sattouf (Les Beaux Gosses) that took the Rotterdam Film Festival by storm.

It’s hard to believe for some, but it’s been 20 years since we first heard Samuel L. Jackson recite the passage from the Bible, Ezekiel 25:17, in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. But, now we get to enjoy the speech once again.
During an interview on UK chat show The Graham Norton Show on BBC One, Jackson revisited the now infamous monologue to rapturous applause. Norton’s show is quickly becoming infamous for nostalgic acts doing their old routines as he has had Will Smith no only perform the theme tune to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but also do the Tonto, Jump On It dance from the show with Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks).
For those unaware with Ezekiel 25:17, here it is for you:
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, »

Giancarlo Esposito recently realized a lifelong dream: meeting Sidney Poitier. The actors crossed paths at a post-Oscars party, where Esposito had to work up the nerve to approach his idol. “I’m half Italian and half African-American and my dream was always to be a communicator and an artist,” says Esposito. “When I came to this place called America, I was regarded as a black man, not a human being or an Italian. But his performances were always without color, even if they dealt with color. He had such dignity and compassion and charisma.”
Esposito says seeing an actor like Poitier opened his eyes to possibilities for himself. “Some of us are put in a box or we put ourselves in a box and we keep repeating ourselves because we like to work. Sidney was an original every time,” he says. “And I was finally able to tell him that »

Fresh off yesterday's big news that Paul Bettany is portraying Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we have possible new details on the character's costume. Our report from yesterday revealed that the actor was spotted at London's Shepperton Studios, where he met with director Joss Whedon and conducted tests with the makeup department, who were using a number of different powders to try and replicate Vison's chalky-white skin.
