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 »

Why is Zoe Bell so awesome? It is a question that I have asked myself a few times. Maybe even multiple times watching Tarantino’s Death Proof. She has a new movie where she teams up again with Tracie Thoms as well as Twin Peaks alumni Sherilyn Fenn. Rachel Nichols, Rebecca Marshall and Doug Jones also star.
Awakening after being abducted, Jamie finds herself in a concrete bunker, and she discovers that she is not alone. She and Sabrina, a fellow abductee, both soon realize that they are in a modern day “coliseum” where, along with 48 other women, they are condemned to kill each other in order to protect their very own loved ones.
Raze is a powerful action-thriller poised to leave even the heartiest genre fans shaken and pummeled. It opens in theaters and on demand January 10.

Watching Zoe Bell punch, kick, and fight her way through action-packed motion pictures is always a certified cinematic blast. Since I’ll probably never get a proper follow-up to director Paul Etheredge’s 2009 effort “Angel of Death,” I’ll just have to settle for Josh C. Waller’s female fight flick “Raze.” That’s not necessarily a bad thing, mind you. If you’ve seen the trailer for the flick, then you already know what to expect from this thing. A group of women are abducted and forced to fight one another with their bare hands. It’s billed as an action/horror hybrid, though I’m sure there’s certain guys out there who will turn this endeavor into a full-on fap fest. Don’t look at me like that. There are dudes in this world who think female-oriented Mma matches are better than porn. I know I’m gross. »

As Quentin Tarantino has proven, exploitation or genre tropes are ripe for reworking into something new, fresh and subversive. And that's just what director Josh C. Waller has aimed to do with "Raze," which takes the women-in-prison backdrop that provided so much material for sleazy '70s flicks and turns it into something very, very bloody. The picture stars stuntwoman-turned-actress Zoe Bell ("Death Proof," "Planet Terror") and Rachel Nichols ("Conan The Barbarian," "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra") and tells the story of Sabrina, who is mysteriously abducted and forced to battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators, with only one allowed to come out on top. The result? Well, as the tagline on this exclusive poster cheekily teases: No Man Could Survive This. It's bruising, harrowing, ass-kicking stuff with a performance from Bell that we said is "emotionally vulnerable but mean as hell." "Raze »

Quentin Tarantino started his feature film career with a string of crime films, but then changed gears with the eclectic mix of Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained. Now it looks like his next movie will see him sticking to the Western genre. During an interview on The Tonight Show, Tarantino said "I haven't told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It's a western," but wouldn't go into any more details other than to say, it wouldn't be a sequel to Django Unchained. Tarantino explained, "I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'Ok! Let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing,'" Hit the jump to check out video of the interview, and for speculation on what the Western could be.

Here's the trailer for a crazy-looking violent action thriller called Raze. The story follows a group of woman who are trapped in enclosed spaces and forced to fight to the death to keep their loved ones alive. This looks like a pretty twisted movie that has a very gritty and hardcore feel to it. If you're into films that involve fights to the death, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this one.
Awakening after being abducted, Jamie finds herself in a concrete bunker, and she discovers that she is not alone. She and Sabrina, a fellow abductee, both soon realize that they are in a modern day “coliseum” where, along with 48 other women, they are condemned to kill each other in order »

Although it’s disappointing that the tagline for Josh C. Waller‘s Raze isn’t “One big room, full of bad bitches,” the stand-in “you should see the other girls” is a pretty fantastic way of getting the film’s message across: do not mess with Zoë Bell. The New Zealand-born stuntwoman turned actress, best known on the acting side of the screen for her work beating the hell out of Kurt Russell in Quentin Tarantino‘s Death Proof, has her work cut out for her in the female fighting flick, which she also produced. Bell plays Sabrina, who is abducted along with 49 other women and deposited in a warehouse of horrors where they are forced to brawl. The catch on top of the crazy is that their captors have taken one of their loved ones ransom as well; if they lose their fight, their child or husband or lover will also lose their life. Not »

Last month we brought you news of up and coming horror thriller Raze. The synopsis of the film plays somewhere between Hostel and Fight Club as an abducted woman awakens to find herself and fifty other women being forced to battle each other to death with their bare hands, all for the entertainment of some mysterious spectators.
Zoë Bell is best known as Uma Thurman’s stunt double in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill two-parter. The New Zealand actress and stuntwoman also had a starring role in Death Proof, again directed by Tarantino. Raze will see her take centre-stage as our heroine Sabrina, who must battle to save not only herself but those that she loves.
After last month’s poster and clip reveal thanks to Yahoo Movies we can now share a new trailer, check it out below:

While Quentin Tarentino may think Death Proof is his worst film, there.s no denying it jump-started the acting career of stuntwoman Zoë Bell, who seems to have reached her career potential in the above theatrical trailer for Josh C. Waller.s directorial debut, the woman vs. woman battle film Raze. Is it a twist on the old women-in-prison flicks, or maybe an estrogen-filled throwback to movies like Bloodsport and Best of the Best? Both? Neither? I have no idea. One thing.s for certain: this trailer, via Yahoo! Movies, looks like the best movie you could ever possibly hope to find on cable after drunkenly arriving home from a bar, needing something to watch while some kind of food is heated in the oven. It.s straight out of the 1980s, only with better effects and 30 years. worth of professional wrestling to pay attention to. No, this kind of »
IFC Midnight has released the first full trailer for Josh Waller’s chicks in prison movie “Raze”, starring former stuntwoman turned actor Zoe Bell and “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra’s” Rachel Nichols. Plus, lots of other people. The takeaway here? If you like prison movies, and tournament fighting flicks, then this is probably for you since it combines to two genre. Let the chick fights begin! Stuntwoman-turned-action-star Zoe Bell (Death Proof) headlines this sly subversion of the women-in-prison genre. When Sabrina is mysteriously abducted, she finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done. Violent and relentless, Raze takes its video game aesthetic to the deepest and darkest places, rarely surfacing for air. Starring Zoë Bell, Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms, »
The good folks over at IFC Midnight have released another trailer for Raze, and we have it for you right here! Tape up your fists and get ready to fight for your lives. Or you can just opt to watch it, but then you'd be passing up a perfectly good opportunity to engage in comical theatrics.
Raze (review here), directed by Josh C. Waller from a script by Robert Beaucage, stars Rachel Nichols (Star Trek, P2, The Amityville Horror), Zoe Bell (Kill Bill, Grindhouse), Tracie Thoms (Death Proof, Rent), Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks," Boxing Helena), Rebecca Marshall (Saw 3D, That’s My Boy), Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), Bruce Thomas (Babysitter Wanted, Kyle Xy), Tara Macken (The Hunger Games), Adrienne Wilkinson ("Xena", Star Wars :The Force Unleashed), Nicole Steinwedell (The Unit), Bailey Borders, Allene Quincy, Jordan James Smith, Amy Johnston, Victoria Cruz and Brianna Gage.

The Fast & Furious franchise isn't going to die. Paul Walker confirmed this yesterday when he "guaranteed" Fast & Furious 8 before the Seventh addition to the franchise has even complete filming. When asked by Collider whether Diesel and himself would return for any future instalments, Walker responded: "Well, the studio supposedly want 8, 9, and 10. I'll be 50. Even if 7 were to tank, there's at least an 8. That’s a guarantee."
Of course, for those that remember, following the third film The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, the franchise was all but dead and Walker confirmed this before Diesel rescued it: "Neither Vin nor I were going back to do the third one. They were going to do a direct to video 4 but then Vin was like I'll come in because it wasn't testing well. It was supposed to be one but we got a second life."
Fast & Furious 7 is currently in production »

Machete is the little film that could. Starting life as a fake trailer which played between the two feature halves of Grindhouse – Death Proof, and Planet Terror – Machete is now set to become a trilogy.
The franchise, directed by Robert Rodriguez, stars Danny Trejo as an ex-federalé with a knife fetish, and a body count to rival the most bloodthirsty of killers. October saw sequel Machete Kills released in cinemas across the UK and the film followed the same formula of the first, babes, bullets and blood. Those who missed the film on the big screen will have missed out on a fantastically tongue-in-cheek trailer for potential final trilogy instalment Machete Kills Again… In Space.
Not to worry though as Thn have stumbled across the trailer in it’s entirety on YouTube. Riffing heavily off of space films such as Star Wars, the trailer is wonderfully over the top and »

Anthony Stokes on how 12 Years a Slave succeeded where Django Unchained failed...
As I was walking out of 12 Years a Slave I noticed a majority of the audience stayed back and watched the credits. Apart from during a Marvel movie I've only seen this happen a few times - Black Swan, The Social Network and Fruitvale Station. To me it means that a movie has impacted an audience so emotionally they need a moment to collect themselves, in the case of Fruitvale or Black Swan, or a movie is so well made you want to just sit and appreciate every person that contributed to this wonderful experience, The Social Network for example. 12 Years a Slave seemed to have accomplished both, being equally emotionally devastating and also an incredibly well-made film. This is the sort of thing I would show film students as an example of how to make a movie »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.
