'SNL's recent run of putting musicians in the hosting position may have failed to impress, between such stars as Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Bruno Mars, and likely this Saturday's Justin Bieber double-feature, but movie stars will take back the limelight on February 16 when 'Django Unchained' and 'Inglorious Basterds' star Christoph Waltz takes the stage as host for the first time! Joined by the Alabama Shakes, what can we expect from Waltz's first turn on the 'SNL' stage? Find out inside!
'The Muppets 2' originally had Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz cast as the film's new villain, a bumbling Interpol agent. But Waltz was forced to drop out due to scheduling concerns and was replaced by 'Modern Family' star Ty Burrell (interesting choice for a replacement...). But now it appears that Waltz may star in 'The Muppets 2' after all, in a different role.
'Django Unchained' hasn't even debuted to the masses yet but we already know it's a cinematic force to be reckoned with as it's been nominated for five categories in the 2013 Golden Globes, including Best Picture and Best Director. Also gettings noms for Quentin Tarantino's latest are Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz for Best Supporting Actors, and now you can sample a bit of their award-worthy performances in the latest clip.
It's no secret that we're incredibly excited to see 'Django Unchained' and we won't beat around the bush: we're pretty jealous of everyone who got to see the first screening of the finished film last night! Although it was technically a DGA screening (appropriate since this is Quentin Tarantino's first film as a member of that guild), plenty of press-types managed to get in too. When the screening was over, phones came out of pockets, Twitter apps were fired up and opinions were shared. What did everyone think?
A teenage girl whose dad is apparently Bill Nye the Science Guy gets shrunk down to miniature size and goes on an adventure with nature.
It's been quiet on the 'Muppet 2' front for a while. We knew that James Bobin would return to write and direct, with writing assistance from Nicholas Stoller, and we knew that the sequel would be Jason Segel-free. But it looks like now they've started the casting process for the next film, and the first name is a bit of a surprise: Christoph Waltz.
Just two weeks after we got a look at the second official 'Django Unchained' trailer, here comes one from overseas... or should we say "Candyland"? The Weinstein Company has been shelling out promotional material, from posters to TV spots, of Quentin Tarantino's latest film left and right, and now here comes some new footage packed into an international trailer.
'Django Unchained' promises that this Christmas, "Django is off the chain," and so are these five new character posters, highlighting stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and more.
Terry Gilliam's next film will be an existential science fiction film, which sounds about right for the visionary director. What sounds even better than that is the announcement that Christoph Waltz will take the lead in Gilliam's upcoming 'Zero Theorem.'
Looks like Quentin Tarantino's upcoming 'Django Unchained' is big enough to get its own own panel inside Comic-Con 2012's Hall H, which previously housed large panels by Disney, Sony and 'The Walking Dead,' to name just a few. Well, when you add names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson to Tarantino, it's bound to get some special attention.
