BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Quentin Tarantino has been giving American audiences a jolt with his collision of homage, over-the-top violence, and mesmerizing monologues since he burst on to the scene in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs. But enjoy it while you can.
Major studios need not apply if they're interested in a piece of The Hateful Eight. Quentin Tarantino has made distribution a strictly indie affair, and it could be because he's not a fan of major studios.
Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight almost didn't happen due to a script leak earlier this year - so now that the famed writer/director has finished working on his latest draft, he's going to some extreme lengths to make sure that it doesn't get leaked again.
The man who played The Gimp in Quentin Tarantino’s legendary Oscar-winning crime-comedy, Pulp Fiction, has opened up about the role, and he’s revealed that it had rather terrifying consequences on his life. Steve Hibbert has admitted that he got calls from over 20 people asking him on a date after they saw his disturbing portrayal.
Quentin Tarantino has made a habit throughout his career of helping actors regain the spark, popularity, and notoriety that they had in the early years of their careers. The most famous example of this, of course, is John Travolta - who Tarantino brought back into the mainstream with Pulp Fiction - and now the Oscar-winning writer/director is ready to pull a similar move for another star with his new film, The Hateful Eight.
The following story not only tells you how Kevin Smith drew inspiration from Quentin Tarantino for Clerks, it's probably the only time you'll see Madonna and Star Wars mentioned in the same story. Unless you read a lot of British tabloids.
The Hateful Eight has found a base of operation in Colorado. As Quentin Tarantino and company sign deals for the film's production, local papers are dropping all kinds of juicy details on this acclaimed writer/director's eighth feature film.
This past summer the Django Unchained writer/director hosted a very exclusive live-reading of the Hateful Eight script, and helping him bring it to life on stage were many actors whom with he's previously collaborated. While it may very well turn out that all of those stars return to work on the film version, but now new rumors are circulating saying that the filmmaker is looking at yet another big name to join his latest cast.
The New Beverly is an LA institution, a mecca for film lovers who still prefer their movies be shown on 35mm as opposed to the more standard digital formats the studios favor these days. It’s this dedication to the format that convinced Tarantino to step in and take command of the theater he acquired way back in 2007.
The Hateful Eight will be shot for a 70mm release, and The Weinstein Company is promising the widest release this shooting format has been offered in 20 years. TWC will also be offering releases in 35mm format as well as a digital release.
If you've been counting the days until Jennifer Lawrence starred in a Quentin Tarantino movie, your wait just might be coming to an end. If not, then perhaps we can convince you as to why you should be!
As the film won't go into production until 2015, there's no footage to speak of. Instead, The Hateful Eight opens on snow-covered dunes while a "western-style ballad" plays over title cards that tell of strangers being forced together after being stranded in a blizzard. “They soon discovered they shared a deadly connection” reads the titles before blood splatters across them.
Digital filmmaking has overtaken analog, but there are some directors who refuse to let film stock die out. And so Hollywood studios are stepping in to lend support to Kodak in its time of crisis.
What else do we know about The Hateful Eight? A lot, actually, thanks to all of the details that emerged as Quentin Tarantino tried to sue the Web site Gawker for pointing readers to a leaked copy of the screenplay.
Just when you had given up hope that you'd see the long teased Whole Bloody Affair cut of Kill Bill, in comes Quentin Tarantino to give us hope that we will get to see that promised land in the near future. At least, that's what he wants us to think, after all we've heard these words from him before.
