Interesting New Details on Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's Characters in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

We are super excited about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and we have some new details about two of the main characters given to us by the director himself. In a recent interview with USA Today, Tarantino described the characters played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as follows:

DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton is “a man full of inner turmoil and self-pity for not being in a better position, career-wise. But as is Rick’s way, he blames everybody but himself.”

As for Pitt’s Cliff Booth, Tarantino describes the character as an “indestructible…World War II hero and one of the deadliest guys alive.” The director adds: “He could kill you with a spoon, a piece of paper or a business card. Consequently, he is a rather Zen dude who is troubled by very little.”

These are some fun and solid descriptions that

Video Game Review – World War Z

Scott Watson reviews World War Z…

I have to admit to being caught completely off guard with Saber Interactive’s World War Z game. It feels like it’s come from out of nowhere like one of its rampant zombie swarms, so low key has the marketing seemed to be. I think however, having spent a good part of the past week up to my eyes in blood, gore, and zombie bits, that word of mouth may well see this picked up very quickly. It’s an enjoyable, albeit perhaps too short lived, experience.

Saber Interactive have pulled together a short, sharp, blast of frenetic four player co-op action that is part horde mode, part survival mode, part weapon sandbox, and for the most part all fun.

Based on the novel and subsequent Brad Pitt fronted film of the same name, World War Z pits you as one of four

Summer Box Office: Five Weekends to Watch
Popcorn season is upon us, and it’ll be up to comic-book heroes, a wise-cracking genie, and a lion who would be king to ensure movie theaters are still the hottest place to spend the summer.

Last summer, blockbusters like “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” Ocean’s 8,” and “The Meg” drove moviegoers to their local multiplex in record numbers. This year could be equally impressive. At the very least, Disney will be a force to be reckoned with as the studio unveils highly anticipated titles, including “Avengers: Endgame,” “The Lion King,” and “Toy Story 4.”

As the dog days approach, Variety took a look five weekends that should have the summer box office sizzling.

April 26: “Avengers: Endgame

Summer is getting off to an earlier start with “Avengers: Endgame” debuting at the end of April, and Marvel’s epic superhero mashup couldn’t arrive at a better time.

‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Poised to Take No. 1 at Easter Weekend Box Office

‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Poised to Take No. 1 at Easter Weekend Box Office
With “Avengers: Endgame” coming out next week, Easter weekend at the box office has been notably slower than usual with an estimated 22% drop compared to last year’s holiday totals. But it is still looking like a successful weekend for Warner Bros. as it’s on track to take the top two spots on the charts with newcomer “The Curse of La Llorona” and the third weekend of “Shazam!”

La Llorona,” which was produced by New Line on a $9 million budget, earned $11.8 million from 3,372 screens on Friday and is expected to beat tracker expectations with a $26 million weekend opening. The low budget will make this a profitable film for Warner, though it will likely have a very frontloaded performance at the box office given the film’s tepid word of mouth and “Avengers” on the horizon. The film has a 34% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a B- from opening night audience polls on CinemaScore.

Quentin Tarantino Drops New Details About His ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Characters

Quentin Tarantino Drops New Details About His ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Characters
Quentin Tarantino is returning to theaters this year with “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” but much of his new directorial effort remains shrouded in mystery. Outside of a basic plot description, Tarantino is wisely building anticipation for “Hollywood” by keeping fans mostly in the dark. Not even the film’s first trailer gave away any plot specifics.

Speaking to USA Today, Tarantino dropped some brief teases about his new characters. The film’s protagonist, Rick Dalton, is played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who earned acclaim for playing the villain in Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” Dalton had a successful career starring on a western television series, but he’s struggling to make it as a movie star.

According to Tarantino, Dalton is “a man full of inner turmoil and self-pity for not being in a better position, career-wise. But as is Rick’s way, he blames everybody but himself.” Sounds like

The drama, inspired by Fails’ own life, had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. In his review for Variety, chief film critic Peter Debruge described the film as “a gorgeous and touchingly idealistic movie centered on a young man who refuses to give up on the dream of one day moving back into his childhood home.” He wrote, “Joe Talbot’s moody debut, inspired by best friend Jimmie Fails’ obsession with his childhood home, shows promise, despite its thin premise.”

Joe Talbot directed the movie, which was Fails’ feature debut. Jonathan Majors also stars in “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” produced by Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment.

Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2019 Include ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and Isabelle Huppert

Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2019 Include ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and Isabelle Huppert
As usual, the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, star power, and the lucky handful of players who might — if everything plays out as hoped — return to North America as Oscar contenders. You know that while “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is conspicuously missing in action from Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux’s official selection announcement, he wants nothing more (especially with a lineup short on red-carpet players) than to have Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and the festival’s favorite filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino, walk upstairs to the Grand Palais.

But for studio executives, whose priority is covering their bottom-line bets, the risks of going to Cannes often outweigh the gains.

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Trailer Pits Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham Against ‘Black Superman’ Idris Elba (Video)

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Trailer Pits Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham Against ‘Black Superman’ Idris Elba (Video)
Dwayne Johnson’s lawman Luke Hobbs teams up with Jason Statham’s rogue former intelligence operative Deckard Shaw to take on a common enemy — a genetically enhanced bad guy played by Idris Elba who calls himself “Black Superman” — in the explosive first trailer for the upcoming “Hobbs & Shaw.”

David Leitch’s film, a spinoff from the “Fast & Furious” franchise that has grossed nearly $ 5 billion over the course of eight films, seems to be packed with all of the quick banter and muscular stunt work that have been the hallmark of the series.

Ever since Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and Shaw (Statham) first faced off in 2015’s “Furious 7,” the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

Cannes: Quentin Tarantino’s “Magnificent” ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ Not Among Today’s Lineup But There’s Still A Chance
Quentin Tarantino’s anticipated ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has been widely tipped for a Cannes Film Festival debut, however the movie was not among those announced today by the festival.

Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux told journalists at the lineup press conference in Paris that he has seen a large part of the film, which is “magnificent,” and that he hopes it can be announced for the festival in coming weeks if it is ready in time. The film is still in the edit before a July 26 release.

Fremaux told journalists today: “The Tarantino was not ready. It was abusively and prematurely announced (in the press) which is too bad because it creates an appetite. God knows we have the appetite for it, but it’s in a sprint. It’s one of the ones we hope to have good news on, to announce that it will be added.
