Quentin Tarantino is among the most ardent cinephiles working in Hollywood today.
The German edition of Playboy magazine has said it's standing by an interview it did with Ennio Morricone in which it's alleged the film composer slated director Quentin Tarantino.
Movies can be like Marmite, and while some raved about, say, Christopher Nolan's mind-bending Inception, others thought it was over-complicated guff.
A new poster for the upcoming remake of classic western ‘The Magnificent seven’ has been released, and it certainly looks a little familiar.
It seems Quentin Tarantino’s anger has not cooled over his public fracas with Disney in December 2015. Subsequent reports have claimed Tarantino got his facts wrong, and ‘The Force Awakens’ had always been scheduled to screen at the Dome, but the filmmaker is having none of it.
Jennifer Jason Leigh has told how she had to watch powerless as Kurt Russell accidentally smashed a priceless guitar to pieces on the set of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’. You’re never going to cut a scene until Quentin says cut. “I don’t think Quentin knew that it was the [vintage instrument], either.
Don’t lend anything to Quentin Tarantino that you don’t want smashed into a thousand pieces. This is a lesson learned to its cost by revered guitar makers C.F. Martin, after it loaned a priceless six-string guitar to his latest movie ‘The Hateful Eight’ from its Martin Guitar Museum in Pennsylvania. In a scene from the movie, Kurt Russell’s John Ruth takes a guitar from Jennifer Jason Leigh’s Daisy Domergue, and smashes it.
Quentin Tarantino has repeatedly insisted that he will only make 10 films. “I think I’ve done all the ones that I’ve had a burning desire to do,” Tarantino admitted. “And I like the idea of doing a Hollywood movie one of these days,” Quentin Tarantino continued.
Movie buffs love the films of Quentin Tarantino not just for the filmmaker’s whip-smart dialogue and stylised ultra-violence, but because they come heavily loaded with pop culture references, homages, and tributes to the golden age of cinema. More recently the fake burger chain cropped up in the ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ TV series and you can watch a fake commercial for the restaurant here.
Samuel L Jackson’s Mace Windu might have been the best thing to come out of the ‘Star Wars’ prequels. So, anything that the legendary actor has to say regarding the franchise is always worth hearing.
In 2014, Quentin Tarantino announced he would quit filmmaking when he’d made 10 movies. His eighth directorial feature ‘The Hateful Eight’ hits cinemas this week, so does that mean we’ve only got two more Tarantino films to look forward to in the future?
Speaking exclusively to Yahoo, Roth who can be seen this week in the much more noble Tarantino epic 'The Hateful Eight’, explained that actors very rarely make movies they’re happy with. “['United Passions’] was a crap movie that I did for for money,” he says in our video above. 'United Passions’ told the story of the genesis of FIFA and it’s reported $30m budget was mainly paid for by the World Cup organisers.
UPDATE: The UK distributors of ‘The Hateful Eight’ have revealed that a dispute over the exclusive rights to show the extended 70mm “Roadshow” presentation of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western is the reason the film won’t be coming to Cineworld, Curzon, and Picturehouse cinemas when it’s released this Friday. The statement on the Guardian reads: “Cineworld had made us aware that they were very unhappy that The Hateful Eight had been booked into the Odeon Leicester Square for an exclusive 70mm Ultra Panavision presentation, and specifically that they would therefore not be able to play the film at their Picturehouse Central venue. Due to the special facilities required for the unique 70mm Ultra Panavision presentation we needed the largest theatre and screen possible in the West End and the Odeon Leicester Square was the natural choice.
The Wrap reports that Tarantino and studios The Weinstein Company and Colombia Pictures are named in the lawsuit, and the Colvins are seeking “an amount in excess of hundreds of millions of dollars to be proven at trial” in damages. The suit claims, “Before Django Freeman, there was an escaped slave named Jackson Freeman who desired to purchase his family’s freedom from a malevolent plantation owner.
The recently leaked ‘Hateful Eight’ screener has been traced back to Andrew Kosove, a top Hollywood producer who, apparently, should have really known better.
While anticipation levels rise for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’, Channing Tatum has revealed how he nabbed a part in the epic Western. Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, the ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star shares the secret to getting QT’s attention and landing a role in one of his movies. “I was just praying that no one really tough was up for the role,” Tatum said, and was concerned over just who else might’ve been in the running.
Quentin Tarantino is downright furious with Disney. Tarantino wants to screen his eighth film at the Cinerama Dome on Sunset Boulevard. The ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Reservoir Dogs’, and ‘Django Unchained’ director believes that this is a travesty since the Cinerama Dome is arguably America’s most famous 70mm premiere venue, and Tarantino shot ‘The Hateful Eight’ specifically on 70mm.
Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie ‘The Hateful Eight’ is the acclaimed writer-director’s second western in a row after ‘Django Unchained’- but this wasn’t always his plan. Tarantino has revealed that he originally had designs on exploring the further adventures of Jamie Foxx’s emancipated slave-turned-avenging gunslinger in a series of novels, before having a change of heart. ‘The Hateful Eight’ has already garnered comparisons to Tarantino’s debut ‘Reservoir Dogs’ due to its set-up of eight untrustworthy characters - among them Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh and ‘Reservoir Dogs’ alumni Tim Roth and Michael Madsen - in a single location.
While UK audiences still have to wait over a month until ‘The Hateful Eight’ is in cinemas screenings of Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film have now begun ahead of its Christmas Day release in the US.
With a new ‘Hateful Eight’ trailer out this week, we get an even better glimpse at Quentin Tarantino’s eighth movie, a gritty, violent western starring, amongst his other regulars, Sam L. Jackson, Tim Roth, and Michael Madson. With that in mind, it appears there are, in fact, a number of similarities to his début film, ‘Reservoir Dogs’. As learned from the synopsis and as per the footage in the trailer, the plot’s about eight strangers - all bounty hunters - who become trapped overnight within the confines of a mountain shelter.
Earlier this year, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson announced plans to produce and star in a remake of John Carpenter’s 1986 fantasy action comedy ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’
An internet sleuth has discovered striking similarities between the plot of Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming ‘The Hateful Eight’ and an episode of an 1960 TV Western, begging the question: Has Tarantino been rumbled for plagiarism? Genre expert Joe Leydon writing for Cowboys & Indians magazine points out that the synopsis for ‘The Hateful Eight’: “Could serve as a recap of ‘Fair Game’, an episode of the half-hour western drama The Rebel, which ran for two seasons, 1959-61, on ABC.” - See Eddie Redmayne In ‘Danish Girl’ Trailer - Real Names Of Hollywood Stars Piecing together the leaked script and the first trailer (watch below) for ‘The Hateful Eight’ we know that the film sees a bounty hunter and his handcuffed female prisoner (played by Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh) seeking refuge in a bar for the night with a bunch of strangers, none of whom seem to be who they say they are. Everyone is suspicious of each other and when someone drops down dead, mayhem ensues. In ‘Fair Game’, an episode of short-lived ABC Western coincidentally directed by ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ helmer Irvin Kershner, the lead characters wait overnight at a stage depot and are joined by a bounty hunter, his handcuffed female prisoner and a bunch of strangers, none of whom seem to be who they claim, before mayhem breaks loose when one of the assembled drops down dead.
Quentin Tarantino has admitted that he made mistakes with ‘Grindhouse’, the double-bill horror pastiche project he made with Robert Rodriguez. The movies, comprising Tarantino’s 'Death Proof’ and Rodriguez’s 'Planet Terror’, were released in 2007, but bombed at the box office. - Mel Gisbon denies assaulting photographer - The best bits from Patrick Stewart’s AMA - Reggie Kray’s family angry over new biopic Speaking to New York magazine, he said: “I learned a big lesson with ‘Grindhouse’, and I try not to repeat the mistake. “Robert Rodriguez and I had gotten used to going our own way, on these weird roads, and having the audience come along.
You’d be forgiven for failing to look beyond the likes of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens’ and DC’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ at this year’s Comic-Con. In fact, it may just have been the most interesting thing to have come out of this year’s Comic-Con, and that’s even without having seen the exclusive seven-minute footage that was shown. Familiar names include Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen.
