Back at the end of November, The Weinstein Company released a 'final trailer' for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, but with the Spaghetti Western homage now just a couple of days away from its Christmas release in North America, Yahoo! Movies has found the time to sneak in one last preview, which in all honesty must be about the seventh or eighth trailer we've seen for the film. Nevertheless, this one features a few snippets of new footage as Christoph Waltz's (Inglourious Basterds) Dr. King Shultz trains Jamie Foxx's (Ray) Django in the art of bounty hunting, all accompanied to the John Legend track 'Who Did That To You?'
Set in a pre-Civil War South, Django Unchained sees Django and Dr. King Schultz setting out to take down a group of outlaws before turning their attention to Leonardo DiCaprio's (Inception) evil plantation owner Calvin Candie, who »
You'd have to be Will Hunting to count the number of trailers and TV spots we've seen for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained these past few months, but with the upcoming Spaghetti Western homage now less than a month away from release, Yahoo! Movies has debuted one 'final' action-packed trailer featuring plenty of never-before-seen footage.
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx (Ray) as Django, a freed slave who joins forces with the bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz; Inglourious Basterds) where he hones his skills capturing some of the West's most ruthless outlaws before setting off on a quest to free his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington; Fantastic Four) from the clutches of the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio; Inception). Also featuring in the cast are Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Don Johnson (Machete), Kurt Russell (Death Proof), James Remar (Dexter), James Russo (Public Enemies), M.C. Gainey (Lost), Walton Goggins »
Tarantino is a great director and not a great actor. So, why is it that he has consistently tried his hand at performance? There doesn’t seem to be an acknowledgement of his limited talents and the consistency in which he employs himself within his films leads me (and I am sure I am not alone) to believe that he thinks he can act. His very presence onscreen often evokes a visceral feeling of aversion and it equally contributes to his unlikability in most interviews, in spite of his great knowledge and passion for the silver screen. He is generally abrasive and unsympathetically “larger than life”; he lacks the coolness that his rhetoric demands. Tarantino is his own worst enemy and many find his presence in film roles unnecessary and egotistical. It is especially glaring in his own films, as his performances work against the universe he creates. There is, »
Well ain't this a kick in the teeth. It appears that Overnight Productions may have the last word in whether or not we'll ever get to enjoy Robert Rodrguez's grindhouse action sequel 'Machete Kills' The production company has stated that it wants to cut all ties with Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions over the rights to the follow-up, currently shooting. A compaint was filed on Tuesday and the producers of 2010's 'Machete' are looking to sever the April 2012 agreement in which they granted director/producer Rodriguez the rights to make another 'Machete' movie. The rights would then revert back to Overnight Productions. The production was hotting up and already had the impressive line-up which features Jessica Alba ('Sin City'), Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution'), Amber Heard -below ('Drive Angry'), Vanessa Hudgens ('Sucker Punch'), Zoe Saldana ('Avatar'), Alexa Vega, »
A couple of months back when we first heard that 'Spy Kids' star Alexa Vega has signed up for Robert Rodrguez's latest 'Machete' follow-up 'Machete Kills' and she personally stated that 'This was all about owning my sexuality' well, hell she wasn't kidding. The first official image of Miss Vega looking indescribably hot and grown up to say the least has popped up thanks to Rolling Stone and has bought us all to our knees. The now 24-year old actress is backed up by one heck of an eye-pleasing list of co-stars that include returning stars Jessica Alba ('Sin City') and Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution') as well as Vanessa Hudgens ('Sucker Punch'), Zoe Saldana ('Avatar'), Sofia Vergara ('Modern Family'), the Avellan twins ('Planet Terror') and Lady Gaga. The dirty old men involved are Edward James Olmos »
Expectations are high for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and with the constant stream of new trailers and images being released, the anticipation is also reaching boiling point. So in keeping with the weekly updates Tarantino has released yet more new images, giving us our first look at Walton Goggins (The Shield, Justified) who plays Billy Crash, Calvin Candie’s ruthless slave trainer, and Don Johnson (Miami Vice, Machete) who is thought to play a rival slave owner...
Django Unchained centres on Django (Jamie Foxx), a freed slave who teams up with bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). The duo set out to bring down a group of outlaws with their ultimate goal being to destroy the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) in order to rescue Django's wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington).
Despite still being some two months away from release, Django Unchained bagged writer-director Quentin Tarantino a Best Screenplay gong at the Hollywood Film Awards (a.k.a. "the official launch of awards season" - or "the completely pointless awards ceremony honouring films that might be good"), which seems as good an excuse as any for Sony to deliver yet another new trailer for the upcoming Western; check it out below... assuming you're not completely burned out by all of these Django trailers just yet.
Django Unchained sees Jamie Foxx (Ray) as Django, a freed slave who teams up with Christoph Waltz's (Inglourious Basterds) German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz to take down a group of outlaws, before taking on the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio; Inception) in order to rescue Django's wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington; Fantastic Four). Also featuring in the cast are Qt veterans Samuel L. Jackson »

Accompanying the news was the arrival of the first official image from the sequel to the 2010 cult hit Machete, which sees Danny Trejo's ex-Federale enjoying a lap dance courtesy of Amber Heard's (Drive Angry) Miss San Antonio:
In Machete Kills, Trejo's hard-as-nails Mexican is recruited by the President of the United States in order to take down a psychotic revolutionary and a billionaire arms dealer who plan to cause a global war by launching a weapon into space. Along with Amber Heard, Trejo is joined in the cast by fellow returnees Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar), Jessica Alba (Sin City »

Our friends at LOVEFiLM have been busy once again, this time compiling a Top 10 list of the deadliest Femme Fatales in film – the leading ladies who have racked up the highest body counts in their movies! LOVEFiLM asked a panel of its members to watch a selection of films featuring some of Hollywood’s most renowned lady killers, to establish which leading ladies have racked up the highest body counts. The panel were asked to record the total number of kills each fatal female was directly responsible for, forming a top ten list of film’s most lethal ladies…
Kill Bill‘s vengeful assassin The Bride managed to chalk up a body count worthy of first place, with an impressive tally of 76 gruesome kills, the fearless female beat nine other kick-ass chicks to the number one spot. Zombie victim and go-go dancer, Cherry Darling, put her prosthetic machine-gun leg to good use in Planet Terror, »
Thn was understandably thrilled to be given the opportunity to talk to James Cameron’s earliest muse, Michel Biehn. The star of Terminator, Aliens, and more recently, Planet Terror, came across as nothing but affable, humble and enthusiastic. He’s undoubtedly found a new lease of life perched in the director’s chair, but is determined to do things his way. He’s certainly has no problems getting his hands dirty having written, produced, directed, and starred in his low budget grindhouse feature, The Victim.
Tell us about your new film, The Victim?
Basically it’s a very low budget grindhouse movie. We shot it in eight days and I wrote it in three weeks – it’s basically the story of a young woman who’s out partying with a friend and some cops. The cops happen to be not, er, on the ‘up and up’, one of the girls is accidentally hurt and Annie, »

Actor Michael Biehn has played a memorable part in many films, most notably The Terminator and Aliens. You’d think that having spent so many years on sets with famed, lauded directors like James Cameron, he would have taken away a few basic pieces of knowledge as how to direct a film himself. You’d think that having been a part of Robert Rodriquez’s half of Grindhouse, Planet Terror, he’d have witnessed first-hand how to make a great, pulpy film that is equal parts gore and glee—and on a shoestring budget nonetheless.
Biehn cites his time working with Rodriguez as the inspiration to direct his own film, yet none of this comes through in Biehn’s directorial debut, The Victim, in which he also stars. The campy wink so clearly on display in films like Planet Terror is absent here.

Robert Rodriguez is currently in prep on the Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Still, he made time to swing on down to Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas and Shock had a brief moment to chat with him.
At the time, he told us that he was not ruling out another Predator; when we asked him about it over the weekend, replied: "We were thinking about it. I don't know, I'll have to talk to them. They just had a regime change over there - we'll see what happen." (He's referring to 20th Century Fox co-chair/co-ceo Tom Rothman's decision to step away from the studio at the end of this year.)

The Victim, 2011.
Directed by Michael Biehn.
When her friend is killed by Sheriff's Deputies, a young woman finds herself in a life and death situation and flees into the woods, where she stumbles upon a mysterious recluse...
80s icon Michael Biehn wrote himself into cinematic history with such memorable turns in cult classics like Aliens and The Terminator. The 90s weren’t quite so kind, with Biehn relegated to forgettable films, before the turn of the millennium consigned the man, largely, to straight to video parts. That said, one thing has remained consistent, and it is Biehn’s unwavering reliability in almost every role he takes in whatever budget range of film. Now Biehn has made the move behind the camera as writer and director (and star) of The Victim, his sophomore directorial gig (though first in »
Director: Michael Biehn
Running time: 79 minutes
Plot: When a police officer accidentally kills his date in the woods, he and his partner hunt down the only witness to the murder, but find they may have bitten off more than they can chew when she seeks refuge with a sinister stranger in a nearby cabin…
Michael Biehn was inspired to make his directorial debut after he appeared in Robert Rodriguez’s zombie-bashing half of Grindhouse double bill – Planet Terror. Having played starring roles in a couple of 1980s big budget classics and building on that with a solid enough CV since then, Biehn felt ready to take the reins himself. He wrote, starred in, and directed The Victim on a micro-budget, filming it all in just 12 days.
