30 August 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Elia Kazan’s 1960 film Wild River, which stars Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick, Joan Van Fleet, and is Bruce Dern’s debut film, celebrates its 55th anniversary this year. The Royale Laemmle Theater in Los Angeles will be holding a special one-night-only showing of the 110-minute film on Thursday, September 17th, 2015 at 7:30 pm. Actor Bruce Dern is scheduled to appear at the screening and is due to partake in a Q & A and discussion on the making of the film.

From the press release:

Wild River (1960), set in Depression-era America, tells a provocative story of the conflict between an agent from the Tennessee Valley Authority and a proud, defiant older woman who refuses to sell her land in order to make way for a much needed dam. Oscar-nominated actors Montgomery Clift and Lee Remick star, and Oscar-winning actress Jo Van Fleet (only 40 at the time she made the film) plays the stubborn, »

Director David Robert Mitchell responds to Quentin Tarantino’s criticism of It Follows

28 August 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a recent interview with Vulture, director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) spoke on numerous topics, including everything from his previous films to his favorite TV shows, but he also both complimented and criticized It Follows, one of 2015’s best-reviewed horror films. On Wednesday, however, It Follows writer/director David Robert Mitchell responded to Tarantino’s thoughts on the film. 

To start off, Tarantino admitted in the interview that he hasn’t seen too many films this year, but said how he “really liked” It Follows. When asked further about the film, Tarantino responded, “It was the best premise I’ve seen in a horror film in a long, long, long time. It’s one of those movies that’s so good you get mad at it for not being great.” He continued, “He could have kept his mythology straight. He broke his mythology left, right, and center.”

Tarantino’s comments must have gotten to Mitchell, »

Quentin Tarantino Still Holding Onto That Idea For New Sci-Fi Movie

26 August 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Quentin Tarantino remains true to his word and hangs up his hat following the release of his tenth feature film, that means the director has two potential movies left in the tank beyond this year’s bounty hunter bonanza, The Hateful Eight. For a filmmaker that enjoys flitting between genres, the jury’s still out on what we can expect across this purported two-fold swan song, though a recent piece by Vulture offers up some indication about Tarantino’s next creative venture – even if it’s just a kernel of an idea.

After touching upon the status of the long-awaited Kill Bill 3, Tarantino revealed that he is harboring a nascent concept for a science fiction film. Truth be told, the esteemed director didn’t go much into detail, but as one would expect, Tarantino’s vision of what a sci-fi movie ought to be doesn’t necessarily toe the »

UK actor Malachi Kirby (Gone Too Far) has been cast in the lead role in A+E Networks’ anticipated remake of landmark 1977 miniseries Roots.

Former Screen Star of Tomorrow Kirby is set to play Kunta Kinte in the seven-part series, which is described as a historical portrait of American slavery recounting the journey of one family’s will to survive.

The narrative spans multiple generations, beginning with young Kunta Kinte, who is captured in his homeland in the Gambia and transported in brutal conditions to colonial America, where he’s sold into slavery.

Throughout the series, the family continues to face adversity while bearing witness and contributing to notable events in Us history - including the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, slave uprisings and eventual emancipation.

Why Quentin Tarantino Cut Some Of Samuel L. Jackson's Django Unchained Scenes

25 August 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Quentin Tarantino has a warped mind, and Samuel L. Jackson is one of the few who knows the lengths to which he.s willing . and unwilling . to go. The actor has been featured in six of the director.s films (going on seven with The Hateful Eight), but he played his most depraved character in the Oscar-winning Django Unchained. According to his own testimony, he performed such hard-to-watch actions as Stephen that they had to be cut from the film.  Tarantino will do anything for the love of film, but he won.t do.whatever Stephen did. In an interview with Vulture, Jackson said some of the things his character did were so "twisted" that his director couldn.t let them into the final cut. He said: He [Tarantino] was like, .People hate you enough. I don.t know if I want people trying to kill you on the street.. »

Quentin Tarantino Teases Science Fiction Film Idea & Suggests One More Western To Come

25 August 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The alternative headline for this piece could have been "The 10 Most Arrogant Quotes From Quentin Tarantino’s Vulture Interview": holy hell, does this guy possess a staggering lack of humility. Normally, you let others call your writing poetry. But not Tarantino: he’ll beat you right to it and constantly remind you that his words are art (let’s not forget his “Django Unchained” Oscar speech where he basically thanked himself, saying “boy, did I do it this time”; also, please recall Jamie Foxx’s initially confused face). Tarantino surely has the goods to back it up (or, if you do not think much of his recent films, at least he used to), but no one has ever seen Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog or Christopher Nolan behaving similarly —at least nowhere near Tarantino’s level. So here’s five highlights of his self-aggrandizement from the recent Vulture interview. Read »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

Quentin Tarantino thinks Wes Craven held Scream back from greatness: 'He was the iron chain'

24 August 2015 1:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scream might be seen as a '90s horror classic, but Quentin Tarantino thinks he could've done a better job than the film's director Wes Craven.

In a wide-ranging interview with Vulture, Tarantino addressed his aversion to becoming a franchise director for hire, but revealed that he was interested in putting his own stamp on Kevin Williamson's Scream script in the '90s.

"I could have imagined doing the first Scream. The Weinsteins were trying to get Robert Rodriguez to do it," he said.

"I don't even think they thought I would be interested. I actually didn't care for Wes Craven's direction of it. I thought he was the iron chain attached to its ankle that kept it earthbound and stopped it from going to the moon."

The Django Unchained director also admitted that he turned down the chance to make high-profile blockbusters Men in Black and Speed »

20 Best Sound On Sight Podcast Episodes

23 August 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »

Feast Your Eyes On 8 Posters For Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight!

20 August 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Weinstein Company

The trailer for The Hateful Eight oozed retro style, promising Quentin Tarantino’s most traditional Western to date (except for all the snow).

The director’s already helmed at least one effort in this genre with Django Unchained, but everything from the uber-wide lenses at use in the trailer to the Ennio Morricone score suggest The Hateful Eight is going to be a more faithful love-letter to the mid-twentieth century greats he’s cribbing from this time around.

Now, a bunch of new posters have landed. The snowy back-drop and striking red/white colour motif present in the trailer are preserved, but these one-sheets seem chiefly designed as an opportunity to exhibit the eclectic cast.

Whilst there’s still no sign of Channing Tatum’s Jody, they showcase an assortment of the film’s rogues, including those portrayed by Tarantino regulars Samuel. L Jackson, Tim Roth and Kurt Russell. »

Trailer Trashin’: Breaking Down the Teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

20 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

We’re more than halfway through August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is almost over. But there are always new trailers for me to watch and analyze. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at the teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight.

Premise: In post-Civil War Wyoming, eight strangers seek shelter in a haberdashery during a blizzard. But they soon get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Will they survive, and are they really who they say they are?

My take: Back in November 2013, Quentin Tarantino announced that his next film would be The Hateful Eight, his second Western after Django Unchained (2012). But in January 2014, after Tarantino had given copies of his first draft screenplay of the film to a few trusted colleagues, a copy of the script was leaked online. Tarantino was furious, filed a lawsuit against the gossip blog Gawker, »

You'll love these posters for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

19 August 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After the success of 2012's Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino is returning to westerns with this year's The Hateful Eight, and here are the posters to prove it.

Scored by Ennio Morricone and set in a snowswept tavern in the Rockies, it features many Qt veterans butting heads as dark and dangerous characters.

Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed there are only six posters available currently, and that's because the one-sheet for Samuel L Jackson's ne'er-do-well - Major Marquis Warren, "The Bounty Hunter" - has not been released yet.

This is in addition to Kurt Russell's John Ruth, "The Hangman", and Jennifer Jason Leigh's Daisy Domergue, "The Prisoner", sharing a poster, as the two come as a pair.

Wordy, wild and undeniably cool, the highly-anticipated character piece is set to hit select cinemas on Christmas Day 2015, and go wide on January 8, 2016, just in time for awards season.

Kerry Washington Explains Why She Is Not Interested in Getting Her Post-Baby Body "Back" to Its Pre-Baby Weight

18 August 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Do not ask Kerry Washington how she got her post-baby body back. "A few weeks ago, my manager asked: 'Do you feel like you're back? I feel like you're back.' She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, 'You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it's not about going backward in life,'" the Scandal actress, 38, says. And, as the Django Unchained star explains in Self's September issue, "I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle." The TV star »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd in the UK and November 6th in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, »

The Hateful Eight New Trailer: 5 Easter Eggs You Probably Missed

14 August 2015 12:38 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Miramax Films/Universal Pictures/20th Century Fox

Despite the fact that for a while it wasn’t even going to happen, Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, the spaghetti western The Hateful Eight, is coming ever close to release, And now we have a fully-fledged trailer with actual footage from the actual movie and everything (due to arrive in cinemas in the Us come December). It seems pretty safe to say that – based on what it contained in said trailer – the movie is going to rule.

Following on from his brilliant, Oscar-winning “southern western” Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight looks to be a film with all the makings of a great, claustrophobic stage-play; the plot hones in on eight mysterious strangers, all of them dangerous and morality-lacking in their own sick ways, as they’re holed up in a haberdashery during a blizzard in late 19th-century Wyoming.
