It's sad news to end the week with: actress Misty Upham, who recently appeared in 'Django Unchained' and 'August: Osage Country,' was found dead at the bottom of a Seattle ravine. Her body was discovered by a search party led by her family, who are now accusing the local police of failing to assist in the situation in any way.
Today, an announcement that we never thought would ever happen came when Dynamite Comics revealed their plans to publish a series that will see the swashbuckling Mexican hero Zorro team up with Django, the slave-turned-bounty-hunter from Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained.' But especially interesting is that Tarantino himself will actually have a hand in 'Django/Zorro,' co-plotting it with writer Matt Wagner.
While we're still not sure what Quentin Tarantino's next film will be, the director was at the Cannes Film Festival and revealed he's looking to revisit one of his previous films. The director told an audience at a press conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Cannes premiere of 'Pulp Fiction' that he's got about 90 minutes of unseen footage from 'Django Unchained' that he would like to adapt into a 4-hour/4-part cable miniseries.
We're not quite ready to accept that we'll seen have seen the last of Kenny Powers, as 'Eastbound & Down' prepares to unleash its final season upon us this September, but at the very least the all-American legend is going out with the help of his friends. In addition to 'Party Down' star Ken Marino's season-long role, 'Django Unchained' and FOX's 'Rake' star Omar Dorsey has joined the cast for a recurring role in season 4.
Despite being the second largest film market in the world after the United States, China still enforces strict censorship laws regarding what can and can't be seen in its cinemas. The latest victim of Chinese censors is Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-winning 'Django Unchained,' which was yanked out of theaters on the first day of its release.
Quentin Tarantino wrote 'Django Unchained' with Will Smith in mind to star and Smith was the first actor Tarantino approached with the script. So why didn't Will Smith star in the film? We've heard previously from Smith who said he had some "issues" with the script but never heard what those issues were. Now the actor has explained and, well, at least he's being honest.
When Quentin Tarantino sets out to make a film, there are actors falling all over themselves to be cast in the film. It appears to be such an enjoyable and fulfilling experience that many actors make return trips to Tarantino's universe (just ask Christoph Waltz who won two Oscars for his work in Tarantino's films). But there's one person who worked with Tarantino on 'Django Unchained' who isn't eager to ever work with the director again. Who is it and why? Let's find out.
Oscar season seems to be getting longer each year, with speculation picking up in earnest in September and continues until the ceremony itself is concluded. There is much less curiosity around the fan-voted MTV Movie Awards, which also make them more fun, and this year 'Django Unchained' and 'Ted' lead the pack of nominees.
It was one of the most hotly contested categories at the 2013 Academy Awards, but Christoph Waltz squeaked ahead of some very tough competition and took home some Oscar gold, winning Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained.' This was not an easy victory, especially since every nominee in this category was a past winner!

Even if you haven't seen all the nominated films, we can help you get caught up in two major categories: Best Original and Best Adapted Screenplay.
