Inglourious Basterds Gets an Official August Release Date

31 December 2008 3:23 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The Weinstein Company has officially set the release date for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds as August 21st, 2009. The only other films also slated for release at that time include Final Destination: Death Trip 3D and the comedy The Goods: The Don Ready Story. Tarantino's films have never been the biggest box office hits. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 opened on October 10, 2003 and earned $70 million at the box office; Kill Bill: Vol. 2 opened on April 16, 2004 and earned $66.2 million. It's very likely Inglourious Basterds will also have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in early May as well. As excited as I am for Inglourious Basterds, I'm also considerably concerned about The Weinstein Company's plans for it. This decision to slate its release in late August is the first of many decisions that I fear may eventually hurt the potential success of this movie. »

Samuel Jackson Joins Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Too?!

31 October 2008 4:31 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This is some very odd news! The Playlist chimed in yesterday with a very interesting exclusive casting report surrounding Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, which I thought had already finalized its full cast and is currently shooting. They report that Maggie Cheung and Samuel Jackson both joined the film in very minimal roles. Apparently Cheung will play the role of Madame Mimieux, the French matron of the Cinematheque that takes in the protagonist when she's being sought by the Nazis, while Jackson will voice the narration in the film, which is only used sparingly to add some context and background. Considering Jackson has shown up in Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and even Kill Bill: Vol. 2, this wouldn't be too crazy to hear his voice in Basterds. I haven't read the script, but I guess I'm just confused why some guy totally unrelated to the story is providing narration. »

I'm Not Easy

31 October 2008 1:59 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Keith Carradine is still probably best known for his role as a womanizing folk singer in the 1975 Robert Altman film Nashville, for which he also wrote and sang the Oscar-winning song "I'm Easy." Now he's about to play the mercurial, menacing Dr. Alex Farquhar in an Off-Broadway production of Anthony Horowitz's Mindgame, a mystery-thriller with twists and turns galore and no shortage of black comedy. "There is an implicit level of violence — a capacity for violence — that lies beneath his character," says Carradine. "There's the changeability of his nature. I thought that would be challenging and fun to do, more out of the pocket for me." In fact, Carradine was initially offered another, meeker role to play. Born in San Mateo, Calif., the 59-year-old actor says he has grappled with typecasting throughout his career, usually playing the sensitive anti-hero: "But also there was this rural patina applied to me. »

RZA Directing First Movie

21 July 2008 12:03 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rapper RZA is to step behind the camera and make his directorial debut - with the help of filmmaker pal Eli Roth

RZA got his first taste of Hollywood when he teamed up with Quentin Tarantino to provide the soundtracks and film scores for 2003's Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and 2004's Kill Bill: Vol. 2.

And now the Wu-Tang Clan star is to take the helm of new martial arts film The Man With The Iron Fist.

Director Eli Roth tells Billboard.com, "Yes, it is true. RZA's script is amazing. He has been studying and directing with Tarantino for years and he's really ready to get behind the camera.

"His impact on rap music and hip hop culture cannot be measured, and he's ready to add his own unique style and vision to the world of film. This movie will have everything martial arts fans could want, combined with RZA's superb musical talent." »

Man Up. Cry a Lot!

16 July 2008 4:35 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

David Frank knows more than you. Care to disagree? I am a man! A hairy, football loving man. A man who believes Budweiser props up the food pyramid. A man who wears sweat like a fashion statement. I eat raw steak and fart in public. Because I am a man! I rip phone books in half to impress strippers and children (or dwarves, I'm too manly to differentiate). I live in an apartment, yet still own a hatchet. An autographed headshot of Burt Reynolds sits on my nightstand ("Hey kiddo, avoid bran cereal and never perm your chest hair. It's not manly. Burt"). Words like "male" or "guy" are too soft for describing me. Only "man" or "manosaur" will do. And like the text-book definition of a real man, I cry. A lot. I eat buffalo wings and Cheetos smothered in Hell's Blue Flame Lava Sauce. And I do not cry. »

Updated: Is 'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' Coming in September?

8 July 2008 3:03 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Argh, update already as Dan from HDRoom points out that they covered the announcement a couple of weeks ago, saying the 'boxset' referenced by DVDActive is nothing more than a bundle, a la National Treasure. I guess my optimism is slowly turning into eternal doubt. The bundle and both single editions are already available for pre-order here (Vol. 1), here (Vol. 2) and here (bundle). DVDActive is reporting that on September 9, Walt Disney Home Entertainment will release Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2 on Blu-ray and also notes "a boxed set containing both titles will also be available." The site has no details on special features for the Blu-ray set or what exactly will be included or make-up the boxed set, but we can only hope they have finally come to their senses and are giving the fans what they want. What are the chances? Realistically... slim, »
