Netflix did not have Sense8-tional news for fans of the twisty freshman thriller at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday.
Many assumed the show’s TCA panel would kick off with a Season 2 renewal announcement. Instead, executive producer J. Michael Straczynski told reporters that he’s “still awaiting word” about a pickup, adding, “We’re cautiously optimistic, but, ultimately, it’s Netflix’s call.”

Sure, we have all seen our share of an “Unstable Mabel” in cinema throughout the years. Some, more than others, do stand out in craziness, chaos and curiosity. These furious females in film–at least the ones that we will spotlight in this particular movie column–have something to their off-kilter filter that dares to dig deep on so many psychological levels of frivolity and fury.
In Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned: Top 10 Damaged Divas in the Movies we will examine some of the warped women on the big screen that have a sense of demented diva-like dimensions to their cockeyed characterizations. These mistresses of misbehaving all demonstrate various kinds of detachment and dysfunction that capture our puzzling imaginations. Are there perhaps even stronger and more memorable bombastic she-beasts that have a certain score to settle against their detractors or society as a whole? Of course. However, the »

In Quentin Tarantino’s new western The Hateful Eight, New Zealand stunt woman turned actress Zoe Bell is playing a character called “Six Horse Judy.” It is not an action role as such but is as challenging in its own way as her part in Tarantino’s Death Proof (which required her hanging out of a car driven at breakneck pace) or as a stunt double in Kill Bill. »
Fast-talking auteur Quentin Tarantino opened his panel at Comic-Con’s Hall H with a behind-the-scenes look at his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight. Introduced by Samuel L. Jackson, who sent his regrets for not making it to the Con this year, the featurette took us into Tarantino’s mindset as he approached his latest film.
With the director and nearly all of the Hateful Eight – Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Demian Bachir, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, and Bruce Dern – on the Hall H stage, we got the inside scoop on what to expect when the Western shoots its way into theatres on Christmas Day.
Check out what we learned at The Hateful Eight panel:
Tarantino got over the early script leak of his first draft of the screenplay. When the script first leaked last year, the director vowed that he wouldn’t continue with the production. Luckily for us, »

Quentin Tarantino may have upcoming western The Hateful Eight firmly trained between his crosshairs, but that doesn’t mean the director doesn’t refer back to his beloved – and perhaps greatest – revenge story and tease a potential threequel. That’s right, more than a decade after the acclaimed sequel, Kill Bill 3 continues to flirt with the limelight, and during Tarantino’s appearance at Comic-Con, the esteemed filmmaker offered his own two cents on the long-rumored continuation.
Does that mean that the third installment is easing closer to a production start? Not exactly. When asked about the chance of him returning to the hyper-violent series, Tarantino replied with “never say never,” which is at once a reassuring lifeline and a frustrating answer. And yet, the director did note that leading star Uma Thurman – who plays the menacing Bride – is on board for another chapter, though it’s merely a case of »

"Never say never," Tarantino said. "We'll see, when it comes to Kill Bill 3. Uma [Thurman] would really like to do it, we talk about it every once in a while or so..."
The director then went on to suggest that the third film in the series could focus on the daughter of Vernita (played by by Vivica A Fox).
"We've got to wait for Vernita's daughter to get old enough to go and kill her," he quipped.
Tarantino also revealed he could make a move to the world of television if digital filmmaking continues to dominate the movie industry. »
Here are a bunch of sequel bites for those of you who are always wanting more... Wreck-It Ralph 2 During an interview with an Irish radio station over the weekend, John C. Reilly revealed that he's signed on for a sequel to Disney's Wreck-It Ralph. It's possible that he's been on board for a while and that this isn't actually a new development, but we can hope. Reilly voiced the title character in the 2012 original, which follows video game characters residing in a shared universe after the arcade shuts down for the night. (Coming Soon) Kill Bill Vol. 3 With Quentin Tarantino at Comic-Con promoting his upcoming film, The Hateful Eight, he was once again asked about the possibility and status of another Kill Bill installment...

Uma Thurman has returned to CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. She had been without an agent for the past year. Thurman had been represented by CAA for most of her career, including during her Oscar-nominated breakout turn in Pulp Fiction and her iconic role in Kill Bill: Vols. 1 and 2. After leaving the agency in 2011, she signed with Wme the following year and then with UTA in 2013. The actress, who most recently appeared in the NBC miniseries The Slap, will be seen this October in The Weinstein Co. comedy Adam Jones (previously titled Chef), starring

Quentin Tarantino was one of the many folks who took to the stage of San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend to talk about their new film. In his case, it's his second western (and he teased making a third!), The Hateful Eight, which is arriving in December.
Tarantino debuted seven minutes of footage from the film, and we suspect a first trailer for the film can't be too far away. He also revealed that Ennio Morricone was scoring the film, his first western composition in four decades.
For now, though, a poster for the film has been released, »
Tarantino said, “Never say never to Kill Bill 3. Uma [Thurman] would really like to do it. We talk about it every once in a while. Vernita’s daughter just needs to get a little older.”
The main story floated around for Kill Bill Vol. 3 features the daughter of Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox), who witnessed her mother get killed at a young age by Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo, setting out for revenge.
The two previous Kill Bill films did very well at the box office, together grossing over $330 million worldwide on a combined budget of $60 million. To this day, Kill Bill Vol. 2 is the only sequel Tarantino has ever made, so we’ll see if he decides to continue the saga. »

Quentin Tarantino revealed that composer Ennio Morricone would provide the score for the director's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight during that film's Comic-Con panel in San Diego. With The Hateful Eight, Morricone is returning to the Spaghetti Western genre for the first time in four decades. The Italian composer previously provided the legendary scores for classic Westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West and My Name is Nobody.
For over a dozen years now – and for five (going on six) consecutive »
Quentin Tarantino and the cast of his latest film “The Hateful Eight” corralled San Diego Comic-Con’s renowned Hall H this weekend to preview unseen footage and to answer questions from fans, and invariably a question from the crowd was raised about whether there would be a third installment to the inventive, genre-bending"Kill Bill" series? “Never say never, we'll see, when it comes to 'Kill Bill 3.' [Uma Thurman] would really like to do it, we talk about it every once in awhile or so — we've got to wait for Vernita’s daughter to get old enough to go and kill her,” Tarantino explained, which drew thunderous applause from the audience. Qt is of course referring to the character of Nikkia Bell (played by actress Ambrosia Kelley), the daughter of Vernita Green (played by Vivica A. Fox), who Beatrix provides an assassin’s edict to upon murdering her mother: “When you grow up, »

Ennio Morricone will officially score Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming western movie The Hateful Eight. Tarantino has, of course, used Morricone’s music in his films before, but his contribution to The Hateful Eight will be his first full, original score for Tarantino, and his first for a western in over 40 years.
Tarantino made the announcement following previewing seven minutes of footage from the movie in the 6,500 capacity Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.
I want to make one announcement that people don’t know yet. It wasn’t for sure, but we just settled it. You guys know that I don’t use an original score in my movies, I kinda take scores from other movies and put ‘em in there. This one, I thought should have an original score. So I’m here to announce that »

San Diego - Quentin Tarantino returned to Comic-Con Saturday after a triumphant "debut" for "Django Unchained" in 2012. Actually, the Oscar-winning filmmaker has been to the convention many times, but usually just as an attendee.* Today Tarantino was on hand to talk about his upcoming thriller "The Hateful Eight" and begin what will clearly be a significant publicity push to inform moviegoers of its roadshow release (more on that later). *Tarantino revealed he was at Comic-Con two years ago, but wore a mask to disguise himself. He spent his time filling out the holes in his comic book collection on the convention floor. Along with Tarantino the Hall H panel featured a majority of "The Hateful Eight" cast including Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern. Longtime Tarantino collaborator Samuel L. Jackson couldn't make it in person, but was a part of »

Could there still be life in the “Kill Bill” series? Director Quentin Tarantino didn’t completely shut down the possibility at a Comic-Con panel promoting his upcoming film “The Hateful Eight.” When asked about a future for Beatrix, the director reportedly says, “Never say never to ‘Kill Bill 3.’ Uma [Thurman] would really like to do it. We talk about it every once in a while. Vernita’s daughter just needs to get a little older.” The two “Kill Bill” films, the last of which was in the theaters in 2004, grossed a combined $333 million worldwide on relatively slim production budgets totaling $60 million. »

The remarks came during an audience Q&A after the writer-director had danced around previous reports that he would quit directing after ten films.
“I quite like the idea of ten and done,” he said, adding that he tended to make three films every decade and might hang up his boots after 15. “I do like the idea of getting out and leaving you wanting a little bit more.”
Tarantino returned to the theme of digital filmmaking, a subject that stirs his passions as much as anything else and partly informed a long recorded segment at the start of the panel in which he extolled the virtues of 70mm projection.
“It’s just [becoming] HBO in public,” he said during the Q&A. “If that’s what movies become then I »
