The Hateful Eight Trailer


John Ruth, known by his associates and like-minded peers as The Hangman on account of his fondness for hanging criminals, is a formidable bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a suspected murderer named Daisy Domergue. Along the way, they bump into another brutal bounty hunter named Major Marquis Warren who wastes no time in informing Daisy of her captor's uniquely vicious reputation, and they also pick up self-proclaimed new sheriff of Red Rock Chris Mannix. It's a bitter winter and soon a furious blizzard threatens to engulf them and their stagecoach. Thus, they decide to seek shelter at a small place on a mountain pass called Minnie's Haberdashery, which is currently playing host to caretaker Bob, Red Rock's own hangman Oswaldo Mobray, a ranch hand named Joe Gage and former Confederacy general Sandy Smithers. Unfortunately, the bounty hunters are not the only volatile ones at the haberdashery, and it seems some lethal mounting deception is threatening to bury them well before the storm.

We're Shivering In Excitement For Quentin Tarantino's Winter Western 'The Hateful Eight' [Trailer + Pictures]


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson Kurt Russell Walton Goggins Tim Roth Bruce Dern Michael Madsen Jennifer Jason Leigh Demian Bichir

Guns, violence, cool outfits and immeasurable cheese is everything that Quentin Tarantino is about, so fans have been waiting for a good old Western flick from him for a long time. Now we can rejoice because his eighth movie, 'The Hateful Eight', brings us just that, complete with shoot-outs, stetsons, suspicion - and a helluva lotta snow.

Samuel L. Jackson in The Hateful EightSamuel L. Jackson is as formidable as ever in 'The Hateful Eight'

Tarantino touched on the Western genre with 2012's 'Django Unchained', of course, but that was more about illicit slavery than country outlaws; there's usually humour to the Oscar winning director's work despite the shameless brutality of it, but 'Django' gave us something serious to think about. 'The Hateful Eight' is just plain enjoyable, bounty hunter, sweary (thanks to Samuel L. Jackson) fun, that everyone should be excited for come winter.

'The Hateful Eight': This Is What A Tarantino Western Looks Like [Pictures]


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson Kurt Russell Jennifer Jason Leigh Walton Goggins Demian Bichir Tim Roth Michael Madsen Bruce Dern

In case it wasn't clear already, Quentin Tarantino loves movies. He's talked on many occasions about his love for the Spaghetti-Western genre, which has led many people to wonder what a Tarantino-directed Spaghetti-Western would look like. Sure, we had 2012's 'Django Unchained' to give us a brief glimpse at the idea, but that was racial revenge story first, and a Western second. When Tarantino announced his 8th film, 'The Hateful Eight', back in November 2013, fans worldwide jumped for joy.

A jump that may have been a little premature, as the project was cancelled in January 2014, after the script for the highly anticipated picture was leaked online. Tarantino talked about rereleasing the screenplay as a novel, before going back and deciding to give the film one last shot. Production began in January 2015, and now we have some of the first pictures from the set of the new film.

Quentin Tarantino Suing Gawker Over Shelved 'Hateful Eight' Script Leak


Quentin Tarantino Bruce Dern Samuel L Jackson Christoph Waltz Michael Madsen Tim Roth

If Quentin Tarantino was angry when his latest movie script, Hateful Eight, was passed around in the film industry of Hollywood, you can bet he's totally furious now that website Gawker has leaked the whole thing to anyone online.

Quentin Tarantinno Is Taking Legal Action After Gawker Leaked His Full Script.

Describing the site's move as "predatory journalism," the director is suing Gawker Media after it made a download link to the 146 page script publically available in an article entitled "Here Is the Leaked Quentin Tarantino Hateful Eight Script."

Quentin Tarantino Drops 'Hateful Eight' Western After Leak. (And He Names Names)


Quentin Tarantino Tim Roth Bruce Dern Michael Madsen

Quentin Tarantino has chosen to cancel his latest movie after the script leaked out and gained him some unwanted attention at such an early stage in the new western. The director gave the script, which was apparently still in its early stages, to a small circle of actors who he felt he could trust. However, the script fell into the wrong hands and his longtime agent Mike Simpson began getting phone calls from agents looking to pitch their clients for roles in the embryonic film.

"I'm very, very depressed," Tarantino said, via Deadline. "I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn't mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now. I gave it to six people, and apparently it's gotten out today."

The Pulp Fiction Cast That Never Was: Daniel Day-Lewis, Matt Dillon, Meg Ryan!

Daniel Day-Lewis was sounded out to play lead character Vincent Vega in Quentin Tarantino's classic 1994 crime-thriller Pulp Fiction, though Michael Madsen was eventually favored, who himself had to give way for John Travolta due to scheduling conflicts. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Tarantino revealed producer Harvey Weinstein had the opportunity to land Oscar winner Day-Lewis for the role, though Quentin was adamant Vega should be played by his Reservoir Dogs pal Madsen.

Fallen From Grace: 2012's Ten Most Spectacular Celebrity Meltdowns


Amanda Bynes Demi Moore Lindsay Lohan Billie Joe Armstrong Angus T. Jones Katt Williams Flavor Flav Michael Madsen Edward Furlong Nick Stahl

Ahh… 2012... how fondly we will look back on it. The Olympics. The end of the Twilight Saga…um… loads of celebrities going utterly bonkers, losing the plot, mixing their drugs with their anxiety problems, mixing their drinks with their driving, finding God, denouncing their generous employers, driving over members of the public, telling lies, heading off to rehab… the bizarre behaviour of a huge number of celebrities has kept the therapists on speed dial and the gossip mags in overdrive this year.

We’ve selected the best / worst falls from grace this year, so you don’t have to trawl through the half-hearted meltdowns to get to the real grit of the trials of modern celebrity life.

The Doors Review


Very Good
I figure most of us thought The Doors was plenty of movie at 138 minutes. Little did we realize that one of Oliver Stone's least favorably received movies would call for a two-disc DVD set with 43 minutes of deleted scenes, numerous documentary extras, and a feature length commentary track from Stone.

And yet here it is.

Free Willy Review


OK
What won't a boy do for his whale?

Back in 1993, Free Willy became an inexplicable sensation despite its relatively unlikeable lead character Jesse (Jason James Richter) and the fact that the cuddly creature he frees is not cuddly in the slightest.

Blueberry Review


Excellent
Moebius, aka Jean Giraud, is best known as the artist who revolutionized Continental comic books in the 1960s and 1970s. His work, highly stylized and fittingly surreal, is synonymous with science fiction illustration and the premier adult fantasy comic magazine, Metal Hurlant (Heavy Metal, in the states.) While he began his work as an illustrator for various French magazines and fanzines, it wasn't until the 1970s, when he adopted the pen name Moebius, that his work became internationally recognized. Despite his frequent forays into science fiction and fantasy, his western strip Blueberry (with Jean-Michel Charlier) is perhaps his best-known work. While Mike Blueberry, the cowboy hero of the eponymous strip, has traveled the dusty back roads for over 30 years there has not been a film adaptation of his adventures until now.

Jan Kounen, the Dutch cause celebre responsible for the hyperactive cult film Dobermann, tackles the epic story of Blueberry with a careful, almost blissed out style - much to the dismay of fans of his earlier work. Blueberry is a meditative work, a somnambulist's ramble through western history and psychedelica. The film is slowly paced but crescendos in a special effects blowout, a literal celluloid peyote trip, which would make Alejandro Jodorowsky jump with joy. (That isn't a random aside, Blueberry is as close an homage to Jodorowsky's El Topo as a big budget western can get.)
