8 Things You Could Probably Expect From Quentin Tarantino’s Sci-Fi Movie

25 August 2014 1:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Quentin Tarantino has been making critically acclaimed and iconic films for over twenty years now, and despite threats to retire after making ten films, is still going strong. He hit a bit of a speed bump with his latest project, The Hateful Eight, after the film’s script leaked online, but is now back in the director’s chair and hard at work on making the bloody Western. Tarantino has tackled crime drama, spaghetti western, Grindhouse exploitation, and a World War II period piece, but is now setting his sights in a new genre he hasn’t graced his presence with yet: Science fiction.

While at San Diego Comic-Con last month, Tarantino was asked if he would ever make a sci-fi film, and claimed that he was open to the idea. It’s exciting to think of the things Tarantino could do with the genre, especially when looking at the »

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »

Film Review: ‘Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’

20 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may be in 3D this time around, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s monotone, monochrome comicbook universe feels flatter than ever in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” Rare indeed is the movie that features this many bared breasts, pummeled crotches and severed noggins and still leaves you checking your watch every 10 minutes. But that’s the dubious accomplishment of this visually arresting but grimly repetitive exercise in style, set against a sordid neo-noir landscape populated almost exclusively by tormented tough guys and femme-fatale fetish objects. Nearly a decade after the first “Sin City” grossed more than $158 million worldwide, it’s doubtful whether the directors’ overlapping fanbases can muster the same level of excitement for a picture about which the best one can really say is, “It sure beats ‘The Spirit.’ ”

Set in motion not long after the 2005 release of “Sin City,” but delayed following the commercial »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Teaser Reveals Character Names, Confirms 70mm

20 August 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This week will see the debut of The Hateful Eight teaser. The first vid ad for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western will be revealed ahead of the theatrical release of his dear old Grindhouse buddy Robert Rodriguez's new movie, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. But you don't have to see the sequel to Sin City to get a taste of this teaser. Collider reports a run-down of the trailer. As the film won't go into production until 2015, there's no footage to speak of. Instead, The Hateful Eight opens on snow-covered dunes while a "western-style ballad" plays over title cards that tell of strangers being forced together after being stranded in a blizzard. "They soon discovered they shared a deadly connection" reads the titles before blood splatters across them. The music picks up as a new title card emerges: "The New Film by Quentin Tarantino." Then comes a »

'Hateful Eight' teaser to play in theaters before 'Sin City 2'

15 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you’re making a movie about a rugged 19th-century stagecoach adventure, you’re presumably familiar with the idiom “putting the cart before the horse.” But Quentin Tarantino has always operated outside convention. So it’s oddly appropriate that a teaser trailer for his next movie, The Hateful Eight—a film that doesn’t even go into production until early 2015—will debut in theaters next weekend before screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Though The Weinstein Company—which is distributing both films—declined to comment, sources close to the production tell EW that reports of a theater-only teaser are correct. »

‘Sin City 2′ To Launch With Tarantino ‘Hateful Eight’ Teaser

14 August 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez get together, mischief always ensues. I’ve confirmed that although Tarantino hasn’t started shooting the ensemble Western The Hateful Eight, he has managed to shoot a teaser trailer that will precede his pal Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Tarantino confirmed during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con that he would go ahead with his Western, which he revealed to Deadline in January he would scrap because the agents of one of a handful of actors he gave the script to had leaked it. It created a drama that included a lawsuit, a killer live reading staged for charity, and then finally a deal with The Weinstein Company to giddyap in early 2015 start for the movie that will star Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and others.

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Trailer to Be Attached to 'Sin City 2'

14 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Boy, the road has been long and hard with Quentin Tarantino's eighth film, titled, appropriately enough, "The Hateful Eight." Back in January, the script for the new film was leaked online. After Gawker posted a link to that script, Tarantino not only decided that he was no longer making the movie, but also threatened to sue Gawker. Tarantino eventually dismissed the lawsuit and held a live reading of the script in Los Angeles this past spring. Late last month, a teaser poster for the film popped up in British movie magazine Empire, with a 2015 release date and a note that it would be shot in 70 mm "Super CinemaScope."

And now... another piece to the puzzle: the existence of a teaser trailer that is supposedly attached to copies of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" next week.

Slashfilm has some pretty convincing evidence that some kind of teaser for »

Robert Rodriguez has been busy lately. He's launching the TV network El Rey, he's finally delivering a long-awaited sequel, “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.” Both projects have yielded news recently.

The installment featuring Tarantino premieres on August 27th. Watch the trailer for the show below, alongside some clips of the Carpenter and Del Toro interviews. Turning to Rodriguez’s main job, a new clip from the 'Sin City' sequel has been posted online »

Rose McGowan’s New Film Inspires Nausea and That’s Just Fine With Her

18 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rose McGowan is through with acting. Vulture caught up with the Scream and Grindhouse star last week at Rooftop Films, where she was screening her directorial debut film, Dawn, a wistful, 17-minute almost-thriller that premiered at Sundance. "[Getting selected for Sundance] as a director was huge, honestly,” she told us. “I almost sank to my knees — and in fact, I think I might have — when I got the word that I got in."The film looks like The Parent Trap (the 1961 version starring Hayley Mills, not the more recent on with LiLo), but it feels like the 1955 Charles Laughton–directed thriller The Night of the Hunter, starring Robert Mitchum, both of which McGowan says inspired her short film. ("And Flannery O’Connor’s writing," she added.) While many first-time directors grow nauseous themselves leading up to their debut’s premiere, McGowan is leaving queasiness to other people — including her audience. "A lady told me »

Why Is Scream Factory’s Limited Edition Blu-Ray of Nightbreed $80?

1 July 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Last year at San Diego Comic Con, Scream Factory announced that they would be putting out Clive Barker’s 1990 film Nightbreed on Blu-Ray. Let’s be honest, it rocked horror fans’ socks off. A year later, Scream Factory announces the details about the release of two editions and some of those same fans are complaining about the price tag for the limited edition. I just want to preface this article with the fact that this knowledge that I have gained over the years of not only being a fan of the genre but dealing with studios and knowing some of the ins-and-outs of home media distribution. I don’t work in the industry, I just deal with it for this site and with my own local theatrical program, Late Nite Grindhouse. So, none of this is inside information with Scream Factory and while I have reviewed one product they have sent me, »

Kurt Russell's 5 best movie roles - from Plissken to Elvis Presley

20 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Like a long-lost childhood friend returning after years in the wilderness, Kurt Russell is finally back on leading man duties in new heist caper The Art of the Steal. To celebrate the perennially-mulleted icon's return to the big screen, here's a look at five of his classic roles...

Elvis Presley - Elvis (1979)

Made just two years after the American icon's tragic demise and therefore placed under intense scrutiny by a still-devastated public, John Carpenter's TV movie Elvis managed to win over those suspicious minds with a terrific portrayal of the hip-shaking star by the Emmy-nominated Russell.

Such an iconic, identifiable, and effectively deified figure was never going to be a simple task to imitate - just look at the casting issues over Freddie Mercury in the planned biopic. It speaks volumes for Russell's versatility that he donned the blue suede shoes with such assurance to deliver a rousing performance »

The Definitive War Movies: 30-21

18 June 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we continue with the list, we still see a lot of World War II, but throw in some World War I and Persian Gulf War, too. While some of the films in this portion of the list spin the war film into something a little more ingenious, it doesn’t completely rule out the idea of a patriotic call to arms film. We also see a few more foreign language films on the list, as well as some Oscar winners for their work. Without further ado, let’s light this candle.

Conflict: World War II

In 2008, the Dutch public named it the greatest Dutch film ever made. Who am I to argue? A surprisingly complete film from a director who has Showgirls and Hollow Man under his belt (and Starship Troopers and Robocop…I can’t be too hard »

‘Grindhouse Trailer Classics 4′ DVD Review

15 June 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Don’t you just love Grindhouse trailers? After Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez made them popular again with the inclusion of some fake ones with their Grindhouse movie it reminded people just how silly they were, and how badly made they could be.  Now with Grindhouse Trailer Classics 4 we have another collection of trailers for movies you can hardly even believe existed, some interesting and some really bad, and even some that deserved better this fourth collection brings more forgotten trailers to the screen for our enjoyment.

With around two hours’ worth of trailers on the DVD I did find that watching Grindhouse Trailer Classics 4 did start to feel a bit of a chore.  You can only sit through so many trailers about white slavery, mobsters, sexploitation, Blaxploitation, gore and murder before you start to realise that there were a lot of movies that were very similar and the trailers »
