New York Post Accuses Quentin Tarantino Of "Trolling" Cops To Sell Tickets


Quentin Tarantino Michael Moore

One of New York City’s biggest newspapers is taking sides in the uproar over Quentin Tarantino’s comments about cops. The New York Post has run an editorial piece accusing the director of “trolling” police unions in order to sell tickets for his upcoming movie.

The paper has previously called on Tarantino to apologise for the comments made at a rally nearly a fortnight ago, in which he addressed the crowd and called cops who shoot unarmed black and Hispanic people as “murderers”. The Reservoir Dogs director spoke on MSNBC earlier this week to clarify his position, but the new editorial has essentially seen the Post entrench its position.

Quentin Tarantino Defends Himself Against "Cop Hater" Accusations


Quentin Tarantino

Under-fire director Quentin Tarantino has dismissed claims that he is a “cop hater” and fired back at the ringleaders of the proposed boycotts of his movies, nearly a fortnight after he attended an anti-police violence rally in New York City.

In a frank interview with the LA Times on Wednesday (November 4th), the director denied the accusations levelled against him by police unions. “I'm not being intimidated. Frankly, it feels lousy to have a bunch of police mouthpieces call me a cop hater. I'm not a cop hater. That is a misrepresentation. That is slanderous. That is not how I feel.”

Two More Police Unions Join Quentin Tarantino Movie Boycott


Quentin Tarantino

Two more organisations representing police forces in the U.S. have joined the NYPD union’s call for a boycott on Quentin Tarantino’s movies, after the director was heavily criticising for attending an anti-police violence rally and describing some officers as “murderers”.

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association in New York which represents the NYPD, first floated the idea of a general boycott of the director’s films early this week, after Tarantino made the comments in New York less than a week after an officer was gunned down in the line of duty. That call now seems to be gaining support, with two more forces supporting it this week.

New York Police Union Calls For Boycott Of Quentin Tarantino's Films


Quentin Tarantino

A union associated with the New York Police Department has hit back at Quentin Tarantino after the director addressed an anti-cop rally in the city at the weekend, calling for a boycott on his films.

The Hateful Eight director, 52, appeared at anti-police demonstration in Washington Square Park on Saturday (October 24th) and gave a short speech to the assembled crowd, in which he accused the police of too often being “murderers”. The words were particularly inflammatory, as they came less than a week after an NYPD officer was killed on duty.

“When I see murders, I do not stand by… I have to call the murderers the murderers,” Tarantino said. Despite admitting that the timing of the protest was unfortunate, he nevertheless insisted that people had travelled from around the country to be part of it and that it should go ahead, according to the New York Post.

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.

Quentin Tarantino Prefers VHS Tapes And DVDs To Netflix


Quentin Tarantino Netflix

Director Quentin Tarantino has revealed he’s not yet moved into the 21st century when it comes to movie watching. While many of the director’s classic films are available for streaming on Netflix, when it comes to his own viewing Tarantino has said he prefers an old fashioned DVD or an even older VHS tape.

Quentin TarantinoDon’t ask to borrow Quentin Tarantino’s Netflix subscription.

In excerpt from the upcoming book I Lost It At The Video Store, published by Indie Wire the director says, "I am not excited about streaming at all. I like something hard and tangible in my hand. And I can't watch a movie on a laptop. I don't use Netflix at all.”

Leaked Documents Show Alternative Castings For Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction'


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson John Travolta Bruce Willis Uma Thurman Christopher Walken Tim Roth Rosanna Arquette Harvey Keitel Eric Stoltz Amanda Plummer

Pulp Fiction has long since passed into the annals of movie history, confirming its director Quentin Tarantino as one of the modern greats of cinema and becoming arguably the biggest cult film of the 1990s. But, according to leaked documents, it could have looked very different indeed, as it turns out that many of its stars may not have been Tarantino’s first choices for their respective roles.

His wishlist – which has not yet been officially confirmed as genuine by Tarantino’s reps – was leaked via Reddit on Tuesday (September 15th) and makes for extremely interesting reading. Consisting of two sheets of hand-typed paper, the biggest revelation is that John Travolta, who received an Oscar nomination for his role as gangster Vincent Vega, was not Tarantino’s first choice. Rather, he originally wanted Michael Madsen – who of course did star in his first movie Reservoir Dogs just two years before – to play the part.

Highly respected theatre director Arnold Albertson could not have made more of a mistake when he spends the night with a young and attractive escort named Izzy; now determined to become an actress, she turns up at auditions for his next big Broadway show the following day. To make matters even more awkward, his wife Delta is already cast in the upcoming play and Izzy's remarkable skill leaves him no choice but to take her on to avoid suspicion from the rest of the impressed cast. Unfortunately, it isn't long before Delta's co-star and ex-boyfriend Seth (who happens to still be in love with Delta) finds out about Arnold's brazen infidelity, and with this hanging over him, Arnold has no idea if show will go on if the truth comes out. Izzy is also causing a stir in other people's love lives; her therapist Jane has fallen head over heels for Arnold's playwright Joshua, but he only has eyes for Izzy. Who knew one girl could be so much trouble?

Ennio Morricone is set to write the score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. He is best known for composing music for a number of Italian (Spaghetti) Westerns including the Dollars Trilogy, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and Once Upon a Time in the West.

'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.

With preparation well underway for his latest Broadway show, director Arnold Albertson (Owen Wilson) heads to New York to begin casting. While there, he has a one-night-stand with a young starlet named Izzy (Imogen Poots). He is then shocked to discover her attending his audition the next day, where she performs alongside his wife Delta (Kathryn Hahn) and performs so well that he has to give her the part. As if that wasn't enough, Abertson's leading man (Rhys Ifans) knows about the affair, and also is in love with Delta.

All that remains, is to find out if the play with succeed with so many forces acing against it.

2015 The Year Of Quentin Tarantino? Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair/Hateful Eight Poster


Quentin Tarantino Uma Thurman

Quentin Tarantino star shows no sign of relenting. The ridiculous (it’s the best and only word to describe him) director has hinted that ‘Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair’ could be on its way, while a new poster for his upcoming movie, The Hateful Eight has been revealed.

Quentin TarantinoQuentin Tarantino has a laugh with Jerry Lewis

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair is a longer cut of Q.T’s two-part revenge/martial arts epic, and the extended version is reported to include a 30 minute anime sequence. Film Divider were first with the new poster for the director’s troubled Hateful Eight picture. They released a picture of next week’s Empire magazine, which features a trailer being drawn by six horses leaving a trail of blood behind them. With that out in 2015 and the possibility of a super-extended Kill Bill volume, it might be the year for fans of the cult director.

Ten Of The Best Quentin Tarantino Movie Soundtrack Songs


Quentin Tarantino John Travolta Uma Thurman

Let's forget the controversy for a minute. In Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino has managed to assemble another top draw soundtrack; established names like Ennio Morricone are including, as past and present soul and R&B stars like James Brown and Rick Ross, right up to modern contemporaries like John Legend - even Tupac makes an appearance. But how does it compare with some of the great sound tracks that the director has been known for over the past three decades; in fact, what are the best songs to appear in Tarantino films? We've had a bit of a think and have put together ten songs that we don't think any self-respecting fan of the man could leave out.

Who Can We Trust? Is 'Hateful Eight' Really Filming Early Next Year?


Quentin Tarantino Kurt Russell

Quentin Tarantino’s movie, Hateful Eight, has certainly been subject to the incessant churning of the rumor mill, and now there’s another – albeit from a solid source. Kurt Russell, who worked with Tarantino on one half of his grindhouse production, Death Proof, has told Fox news: "I've got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year."

Kurt Russell and Quentin TarantinoKurt Russell and Quentin Tarantino at a photocall at Cannes 2007 (Getty/Sean Gallup)

But can we trust this? Tarantino has already made his feelings clear towards whoever leaked the script in the first place, and that could have been any of the four actors he initially showed it to. Since then, Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Zoe Bell and Tim Roth have all been invited to read it through, and it’s thought that same cast will appear in the final movie.

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight: Who's Playing Who?


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson Tim Roth Walton Goggins Amber Tamblyn James Remar

Quentin Tarantino recently hosted a live read through of the screenplay for his latest film The Hateful Eight, which by many accounts heralds in a return to the earlier work in the oeuvre of the claustrophobic Reservoir Dogs rather than the grand-scale theatrics of such recent work as Django Unchained.

Tarantino Gives SpeechThe filmmaker has been elusive about whether The Hateful Eight would ever get made.

The read through itself came as a response to the actions of alternative news website Gawker, who published a link to an online copy of Tarantino’s screenplay for the film. Suitably enraged, the pop-culture infatuated auteur not only sued the website but also threatened to postpone the film indefinitely. Thankfully, Tarantino’s rational irritation has subsided, and his official read through also saw the first reveal of the film’s impressive cast in the hope of offsetting a host of rumours and hear-say surrounding the film.

Since winning the Palm D’Or 20 years ago at Cannes, Quentin Tarantino’s brand of filmmaking has become synonymous with cult cinema. Controversy and brilliance has followed him from Pulp Fiction to Reservoir Dogs, from The Grindhouse films to Django Unchained.

Cannes 2014 saw the Pulp Fiction gang get back together again as a special screening of the film marked two decades since it was awarded the Springtime film festival’s highest honour.
