Unbreakable 2: "maybe there's an interest right now"

6 July 2015 11:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

M Night Shyamalan admits that Unbreakable 2 may hold some relevance, as Samuel L Jackson says he'd love to do the film.

Off the back of his huge success with The Sixth Sense, M Night Shyamalan followed it up by writing and producing Unbreakable. Unbreakable was and is an intriguing film, one with a few problems, but still very much worth watching. It brought Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson back together again, and after it hit, there had been talk of making a sequel. But, to date, a sequel has never materialised.

However, in a new interview at Entertainment Weekly, M Night Shyamalan holds out the possibility that it may yet happen. "Maybe there's an interest right now in the underlying struggles and fantasies that are being fulfilled in comic books and not being fulfilled in the real world", he argued.

Shyamalan at one stage had a trilogy planned, yet »

Chris Tucker Live Trailer and Poster Tease Netflix Stand-Up Special

6 July 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has released the first poster and trailer for Chris Tucker's impending stand-up special, Chris Tucker Live, the first live stand-up special to feature the Rush Hour alumn. Following a scene-stealing supporting role in David O. Russell's largely disposable Silver Lining Playbook, Tucker has been slowly been creeping back into the spotlight, following a long absence from film and television starting in the mid-late aughts. Before that, he was best known, of course, as the animated partner of Jackie Chan's hard-nosed cop in the Rush Hour trilogy, as well as excellent supporting turns in Quentin Tarantino's sublime Jackie Brown, the classic comedy Friday, and the less-than-sufferable Money Talks, in which he co-starred with noted inebriant fanatic Charlie Sheen. [caption id="attachment_184880" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via New Line[/caption] From the little evidence gleaned by the fleet trailer, Tucker's stand-up swings wildly from the personal to the professional, and the clash between the two. »

17 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jurassic World is shattering box office records across the globe, but what happened to the stars of the movie that kick-started it all? Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was flawlessly cast, mixing well-known stars and fresh faces in a perfect blockbuster thrill-ride.

With Jurassic World overhauling its stars entirely (just two remain from the original), we take a look back to find out what the stars of Jurassic Park are doing now...

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay Explores Quentin Tarantino's Masterful Character Building

30 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It may be true that Quentin Tarantino is in love with his own dialogue. Make that shamelessly, deliriously, high-school-stalker in love. But hey, if you were the twisted junk-culture poet who created characters as iconic as Mr. Pink, Vincent Vega, Jackie Brown, and Colonel Hans Landa, then you’d feel pretty good about yourself too.  There’s a reason we here at The Playlist are constantly re-visiting the films in Tarantino’s filmography: he’s one of the best writers of pure movie dialogue working today, and his seemingly effortless ability to create memorable and original screen characters is hard to beat. We find ourselves caring deeply about the chatty low-lifes, death merchants, and wacko movie mavens who populate Mr. Tarantino’s blood-speckled cinematic landscape, and the reason for this is simple: in many ways, they’re just like us. They may tote big guns and speak in impeccably eloquent movie-nerd slang, »

‘Coffy’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

21 April 2015 4:24 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Pam Grier, Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui, William Elliott, Allan Arbus, Sid Haig, Barry Cahill, Lee de Broux, Ruben Moreno, Lisa Farringer, Carol Locatell, Linda Haynes, John Perak | Written and Directed by Jack Hill

If there is one thing about Quentin Tarantino we can be sure of, it’s that he loves movies. For film fans who don’t know too much about the “Blaxploitation” genre they may not have picked up the importance of Jackie Brown, or the fact that the movie was built around one actress, Pam Grier… To look at the reason for this, all you have to do is look no further than Arrow Video’s latest release Coffy.

Seen as one of the best films of the genre, Coffy (Pam Grier) is a nurse pushed to finding vengeance against the pimps, junkies and drug dealers who led to the hospitalisation of her sister.  Playing out »

Blu-ray Review – Coffy (1973)

20 April 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coffy, 1973.

Directed by Jack Hill.

Starring Pam Grier, Booker BradshawRobert DoQui, Sid Haig, William Elliot, Allan Arbus, Linda Haynes and Carol Lawson.

Synopsis:

A nurse takes matters into her own hands after her sister is given some bad junk by local drug dealers.

Having released Jack Hill’s 1974 blaxploitation classic Foxy Brown on Blu-ray a couple of years back, it’s taken Arrow Films a while to get to Hill’s previous – and arguably better – Pam Grier-starring thriller Coffy. Has it been worth the wait? You betcha jive ass!

Coffy (Grier) is a nurse by day but during her off hours she takes local hoodlums to task in a variety of ways as she seeks revenge for her younger sister being hospitalised after taking a stash of bad drugs, as well as her other siblings having fallen by the wayside due to keeping bad company.

Watch: Last Year's 'The Hateful Eight' Teaser Trailer Officially Online

16 April 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While we're all excited about the forthcoming new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens arriving shortly, let's not forget that there's a new Quentin Tarantino film coming later this year as well. The Hateful Eight is another western from the director of Django Unchained and Pulp Fiction, and now the teaser trailer that was attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For last year has officially surfaced online. Again, there's no film footage on display, but just a bunch of stylish title cards running through the title characters in the film. It'll have to do for now as we wait for any kind of first look from Tarantino's anticipated project. Here's the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (via The Film Stage): The Hateful Eight is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, »

Justified Series Finale Post Mortem: Show Boss Talks Big Twists, Easter Eggs, a Near-Resurrection and More

14 April 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In the beginning, and to the very end, Justified was about two guys who once dug coal together.

The FX drama on Tuesday night wrapped its six-season run with, of course, much gunplay, a couple more deaths, a few happy (or happy-ish) endings, a significant time jump and a wee surprise.

Vin Diesel And Chris Tucker Join Ang Lee's Billy Lynn

8 April 2015 5:56 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Edging towards some sort of record for the most eclectic cast ever assembled, director Ang Lee has just added two more names to his roster for Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker have signed up to join Steve Martin, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and newcomer Joe Alwyn.There's no indication of who either will be playing yet, but it's the first time Diesel has turned out for anything other than an action role (Groot nothwithstanding) since Find Me Guilty in 2006. On that occasion he was working for Sidney Lumet, so clearly he's amenable to taking a risk for the right director.Tucker, meanwhile, has been quiet since Silver Linings Playbook in 2012, partly thanks to a lifestyle change since his Jackie Brown / Rush Hour heyday. But it's an interesting footnote that he was previously part of another unusually varied cast in Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. »

‘Crime Wave’ is an under-appreciated gem

1 April 2015 7:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Crime Wave

Written and directed by John Paizs

1985, Canada

A married couple attempt to rob a house while making a door-to-door sales call: one pitches the customer, the other fakes a trip to the washroom and searches for valuables. When their cover is blown, the husband bludgeons the man to death with a glass candy dish, and sticks a broom in the woman’s wheelchair spokes before ramming Milk-Bones down her throat. What villains! And all in the name of becoming the top sales team in the nation—that is until they’re gunned down by police at the National Sales Awards ceremony: a pitch-perfect ending to their violent crime wave.

The above is one of many zany and creative ideas Steven Penny (played by writer, director, producer, John Paizs) has for a color crime film he wants to make. The only problem is that he has no middle. »

Watch: Tarantino Profiles to the Beat of 'Whiplash'

30 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Rishi Kaneria has put together this excellent 44-second video that simply takes profile shots from Quentin Tarantino's movies, sticks 'em in a circle and sets the beat to the tune of "Snare Liftoff" from Whiplash. Kaneria notes that "certain shots have been scaled, rotated or mirrored from their original format to create the effect seen in this video", but I don't think any of us will have any problem with that. I can't say the video has any measure of educational value as much as it's a fun little watch as it covers much of Tarantino's oeuvre including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Volume 1, Kill Bill Volume 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. Give it a watch below and if you're playing it on your speakers at work, there's a little eff-bomb at the end you may not want coming from your cubicle. via 35mm »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Quentin Tarantino's 10 Greatest Female Characters

29 January 2015 2:30 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.”

Quentin Tarantino took Jean-Luc Godard’s quote to heart, populating his blood-splattered films with some of the most iconic female characters in the last twenty-five years. There’s almost always a female lead or, at the very least, a villain.

Case in point: Kill Bill. Nearly all the leads – with the exception of the aforementioned Bill – are ladies, and they’re all very, very, very deadly. Luckily, Kill Bill: Vols. 1 & 2 play select Cineplex theatres on Tuesday, February 3, and Wednesday, February 4, as part of this year’s Great Digital Film Festival.

Get ready for Tarantino’s double-bill with “Bang Bang” by Nancy Sinatra and a celebration of the badass babes that have defined Quentin Tarantino’s filmography.

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight: 10 Things You Need To Know

26 January 2015 5:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Quentin Tarantino shouldn’t be able to make films this quickly. On paper, he’s one of the more productive modern auteur directors, having knocked out countless screenplays and done a load of script doctoring at the start of his career, kick starting his own directorial debut in superior crime drama Reservior Dogs. And he’s barely paused for breath since.

Considering how densely packed his films are, how complex, how stylistically daring, it’s impressive he manages to make any of these films, let alone in such rapid succession. That he also manages to shift gears so dramatically – going from the fairly straight thrillers of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown to grindhouse/samurai revenge epic Kill Bill, war movie Inglourious Basterds and Western Django Unchained – is double so.

Speaking of which, a scant two years after Django he’s back with another Western, The Hateful Eight, which started shooting this weekend. »

Michael Keaton remembers Harold Ramis, tackling Shakespeare, Ron Howard's 'Gung Ho'

25 January 2015 7:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton is having the time of his life. Cruising along an awards circuit that has brought him plenty of kudos for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and probably more opportunities to talk about himself than he'd prefer, he seems consistently high on life and not at all phased by the grind. He's not someone who has really sought out this kind of attention and acclaim, often retreating to his ranch in Montana away from the Hollywood fray, but now that he's feeling the love? Let's just say I doubt anyone's having as much fun with all of this than he is. On the eve of this year's Oscar nominations announcement, I met Keaton for coffee and a light lunch at one of his favorite Santa Monica spots to chew on as much of his career and the awards »
