Few people understand the homevid business better than Quentin Tarantino, who was inducted into the Variety Home Entertainment Hall of Fame on December 12 at the Beverly Wilshire .
The director credited his early days working in the “trenches,” behind the counter of a video store, with giving him insight into the distribution biz once he started making movies. He used that knowledge, he said, to strategize release windows for his pics.
“I said we should hold off (on the homevid release of ‘Pulp Fiction’) for nine months,” he recalled. “The easiest way to kill a cult is to make that cult accessible.”
Tarantino added he was surprised to find himself in the company of such honorees as Steven Spielberg and Cubby Broccoli, previous Variety Home Entertainment Hall of Fame inductees. “They produced movies that made a lot of money. I figure I’m getting this this because I’m a video store guy. »

Quentin Tarantino — Variety’s 2013 Home Entertainment Hall of Fame honoree — could be a poster boy for the home-entertainment industry. After all, it’s well-known that the Oscar winner and key influencer of industry trends began his film career at the counter of a video store.
This year, his “Django Unchained” has become a prime example of the growing success of digital distribution just when whetting consumer appetites for digital is the industry’s top priority.
In the U.S., “Django” has been an extremely strong performer, backed with an early electronic sell-through (Est) model and retail pre-sales, says Bill Clark, president of Anchor Bay Entertainment, which distributed the Weinstein Co. title.
In other world territories, “Django” was equally successful, says David Bishop, worldwide president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. “It overperformed in many markets to become Sphe’s biggest international digital title yet, including the highest share of HD Digital »

In Jane Hamsher's excellent book, Killer Instinct, the producer charts the difficult path she and Don Murphy had in bringing Natural Born Killers to the big screen. Natural Born Killers was, of course, originally a Quentin Tarantino screenplay, one that changed dramatically when Oliver Stone signed up to direct the movie.
Tarantino sold the rights to the film for $10,000 after he'd tried to set the project up himself - this was before the Oscar-winning success of Pulp Fiction - and would regret the decision. That said, rumours that he held animosity towards Oliver Stone himself were just that. In interviews since, Tarantino has always been respectful towards him.
Back to Killer Instinct, though. There are a couple of »

Now has one more exciting element to sweeten the deal as well.
Texas Monthly (via /Film) first noticed that a structure very familiar to fans of Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" had popped up in Austin, Texas: a real-life Big Kahuna Burger. Rodriguez answered the question about the building's presence himself on Twitter.
"'That's one tasty burger.' #FromDuskTillDawn only on the @Elreynetwork," he posts.

Producer and Relativity production executive Robbie Brenner is having quite a year, as she helped to make two indie features in the thick of the year-end awards fray. The $4 million true-story AIDS drama "Dallas Buyers Club" (which this week won a Gotham for Matthew McConaughey and a New York Film Critics' Circle Awards for Jared Leto) might never have been completed without Brenner's tireless support over the years. And another hardboiled drama, Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace," was backed by her own Relativity Media, where she's been working with production chief Tucker Tooley and chairman Ryan Kavanaugh (pictured) for five years. The Nyu Tisch School of the Arts film grad got her "bootcamp training" at Miramax in New York, where Brenner started as an intern in 1985, working her way through the ranks through such releases as "The Piano," "Pulp Fiction," and "Cinema Paradiso." "The hallways were buzzing with »

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

Nicholas Ray's astonishingly self-assured, lyrical directorial debut opens with title cards and lush orchestrations over shots of a boy and a girl in rapturous mutual absorption: "This boy … and this gir … were never properly introduced … to the world we live in …" A shriek of horns suddenly obliterates all other sound – their shocked faces both turn toward the camera, and the title appears: They Live by Night.
