If you pick up Bungie’s highly anticipated new game Destiny this September, you might hear some familiar voices on your journey across the universe. The voice cast is stacked with actors from much-loved TV shows like Firefly and The Walking Dead, lending their voices to a number of characters players will interact with in Destiny’s sci-fi universe.
One of those actors is Lance Reddick, of The Wire and Fringe fame. Reddick voices a character named Commander Zavala, who will give players who choose the game’s Titan specialization their marching orders. It’s not Reddick’s first video »

Today I’ll be going back once again and looking at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. I mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be doing that here and there, there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Argo The nominees here for this ceremony were Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty. »

Quentin Tarantino’s new gunslinging saga just keeps getting mugged.
First, the script for The Hateful Eight leaked online, prompting the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained Oscar-winner to file a copyright infringement lawsuit and threaten never to make the movie. He eventually changed his mind, and although not a frame of film has been shot, there’s now a teaser tagged to the front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Of course, that has also been bootlegged online …

How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane ("Dexter" star Michael C. Hall in an affectingly vulnerable performance) puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar Freddy. Although he's hailed as a small-town hero, Richard »

Lawrence is at the very height of success, where she can pretty much turn any film to gold in Hollywood. Working with great directors such as David O Russell and X-men:first Class’s Matthew Vaughn, she’s shown wonderful diversity in her work. It might come as a surprise to some that she’s being linked with Quentin Tarantino, but it’s probably because the Django Unchained director has a completely different ball game to film-making, which is usually a good mix of fun and brutal. His casting choices are usually second to none, making the likes of Pitt and DiCaprio detestable or unrecognisable.
It’s not yet known what role she’s set to take on but it is »

The cast of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is already extremely impressive, but if the rumours about another name being added are true, it’s about to get even better and arguably a lot more intriguing!
American Hustle and The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is said to be in talks to join the cast of the movie. There’s no word on what role she would play, and as there’s apparently only one female member of the “Hateful Eight” (Daisy Domergue, a.k.a. The Prisoner”), that could be who she’s set to star as.
However, it’s mentioned that Amber Tamblyn read for that role during a recent live reading of the screenplay, so unless Tarantino is planning on recasting, that could take Jennifer Lawrence out of the running. Another key female role – Six Horse Judy – was read by Zoe Bell, but that’s said »

Never Underestimate a Girl with Nothing to Lose. Based on the groundbreaking, cult classic anime, Kite tells the story of Sawa (India Eisley, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Underworld: Awakening), a young woman living in a corrupt society where crime and gangs terrorize the streets. When Sawa’s mother and policeman father are found victims of a grisly double homicide, she begins a ruthless pursuit for the man who murdered them. With the help of her father’s ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers,Django Unchained), and a mysterious friend from her past (Callan McAuliffe, The Great Gatsby, I Am Number Four), she becomes a merciless teen assassin, blasting her way through the dark world of human trafficking only to uncover a devastating truth. Kite will premiere exclusively on Directv on August 28th, followed by a theatrical/VOD release on October 10th. »
Back when the first "Sin City" was released in 2005, the idea of doing a 1:1 translation of a graphic novel for the big screen was so outside the box that it bordered on lunacy. But that's just what Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker behind "Desperado" and "Spy Kids," did when adapting Frank Miller's hard-boiled graphic novel "Sin City."
Instead of appropriating the look and feel of the comic book, he just Xeroxed it. It was still black-and-white, with flashes of color, and the actors he chose (among them, Mickey Rourke as the mountainous bad-ass Marv, and Jessica Alba as damsel-in-distress Nancy) were so uncannily close to their comic book equivalents that they might as well have been inked and painted.
Rodriguez also made the generous decision to bring Miller on board as a screenwriter and co-director (something that the DGA frowned upon, leading to Rodriguez losing out on a number of high-profile studio gigs). Together, »

Quentin Tarantino sure knows how to kill people. From Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained, each film is filled with people getting shot, hacked up with swords, and other unpleasant ways to die. Not that there really is a good way to kick the bucket, but you get my point. Jaume R. Lloret has created a very fun supercut of every death in Quentin Tarantino's films, and although I'm sure most have you have already seen every movie from the director, there are obviously more than »

Despite Pirates of the Caribbean being one of Disney’s biggest cash cow franchises, getting the fifth installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, off the ground has been hard to accomplish. Kon Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are attached to helm the film, with Johnny Depp confirmed to reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, but the film has been delayed several times, and is now eyeing a 2017 release date, six years after the previous installment, On Stranger Tides.
Mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been saying that the film will begin production in early 2015, and a new report seems to back that up. According to Inside Film, Walt Disney Pictures is currently negotiating with the government of Australia to receive a 30% incentive to shoot “a big budget feature” in the country.
THR suggests that the “big budget feature” in question is actually 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but the »

Quentin Tarantino is basically the Grim Reaper of movies; he's killed off so many characters, it's hard to count. (Vanity Fair once put it at 560 on-screen deaths in eight films.)
Vimeo user James R. Lloret has helpfully compiled all of them into one, very bloody four-minute supercut. It starts with 1992's "Reservoir Dogs" and goes through 2012's "Django Unchained," and is scored to The Delfonics' "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" from the "Jackie Brown Soundtrack."
As violent and disturbing as it is, you can help but feel a bit of nostalgia for some of the more memorable offings, like Bruce Willis machine-gunning John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction" or Uma Thurman slashing her way through a Yakuza army or Hitler receiving a shower of bullets in "Inglorious Bastards."
Awww, good times were had by all.

And one fan has decided to pay tribute to the blood-splattering brilliance of Quentin with the ultimate supercut of his movies, which features every single killing from his back catalogue.
Warning: This video features lots and lots of adult content
Not one bloody killing or sword-slashing murder is missed in this brutal compilation that definitely isn't suitable for children.
It's the biggest bloodbath we've seen on screen since the Red Wedding. »
I don't think it's a spoiler to say people die in Quentin Tarantino movies. I think it's pretty safe to assume people will die in his next movie, The Hateful Eight. Hell, people might even die in the upcoming teaser trailer for the film set to play in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend even though filming on the movie has yet to begin. That's how often people die in Tarantino movies and Vimeo user Jaume R. Lloret has taken upon himself to pore over Tarantino's filmography -- Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Kill: Bill Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Django Unchained (2012) -- and presents every death from a Tarantino film in the following four-minute supercut. Previously, Vanity Fair charted every death in Tarantino's movies can came up with approximately 560 total on-screen deaths (see the chart below the video »

Director Adam Gierasch is a wonderfully sick, twisted, and talented man. That's why whenever news comes our way that he's working on a new flick, we're on it like white on rice on a paper plate in a snowstorm. Read on for your first details of the House by the Lake.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Gierasch will be directing from a screenplay by Josh Burnell (Boone: The Bounty Hunter). James Callis ("Battlestar Galactica," "The Musketeers"), Anne Dudek ("Mad Men," "House"), Amiah Miller ("Clementine"), and Michael Bowen ("Breaking Bad," Django Unchained) star.
House by the Lake tells the story of the Morgans, a loving yet troubled family hoping to reconnect on their vacation. When their autistic 10-year-old daughter (Miller) begins to fixate on a mysterious friend who may or may not be real, she retreats further into her own world, and family tensions rise to the surface.

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. »

Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) was planning to make "The Hateful Eight" western film his next project, but when he started pitching it to actors, one of those actors ended up leaking the script online. The helmer responded by abandoning the movie. Then came news that Tarantino was rewriting the script with plans to begin shooting early next year. And now lots of reliable sources are reporting that Tarantino has already put together a teaser trailer for the film. Very little is known about it, except that it will premiere before next week's theatrical showings of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For." Unfortunately, it's only meant to be shown in theaters and will likely never be released online. "The Hateful Eight" follows the tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, »
