Quentin Tarantino Reportedly ‘Serious’ About Bringing ‘The Hateful Eight’ to Broadway

So far, audiences haven’t flocked to Quentin Taratino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, as they have with his last two films. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained grossed over $120 million, but The Hateful Eight looks like it will be lucky to get to $50 million. This despite the 70mm roadshow version that encouraged audiences to see the film in theaters. A large part of the disappointing box-office take so far, is due in no small part to opening up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aka the Biggest Movie of All-Time, but Tarantino is not backing off his latest movie, instead doubling down and moving forward with plans to mount a stage production of his latest movie in London and New York.

Quentin Tarantino Wants to Make a 1930s Gangster Movie or a ‘Really, Really Scary Horror Film’

Quentin Tarantino has promised (threatened?) on more than one occasion to end his directing career after 10 films, and with The Hateful Eight appropriately serving as his eighth, that means we may only have two more Tarantino movies in our future. The director has had a few projects kicking around in his head — notably a third Kill Bill installment and the Inglorious Basterds-adjacent Killer Crow — and while nothing has been officially set as his follow-up to The Hateful Eight, he does have a couple of possibilities. Or not — you never know with this guy, you know?

Quentin Tarantino Sued Over Copyright Infringement in ‘Django Unchained’ Script

by Charles Bramesco December 31, 2015 @ 9:58 AM
When father-and-son screenwriters Oscar Colvin Jr. and Torrance J. Colvin first sat down to watch Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained,’ they were probably excited about the prospect of another revenge film from the popular director. But by the time the film had ended, they were inspired to embark upon a two-man mission of vengeance of their very own, in dogged pursuit of the powerful man who had wronged them. And in this instance, Quentin Tarantino is the meth-mouthed Leo DiCaprio figure, and the basic concept of the film’s script is stolen wife Kerry Washington.

Watch Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson Shoot the Bull for 40 Minutes

by Charles Bramesco December 28, 2015 @ 10:13 AM
Along with Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson probably rank as the most popularly beloved American filmmakers currently working. They’re among a small faction of directors with enough public clout that their name alone can sell a film to audiences beyond cinephiles. Hugo was a delightful tale about plucky children and the wonder of silent cinema, but America pricked up its ears and took notice because it was also une film de Scorsese. When Quentin Tarantino prepares to unveil a new feature, as he did quite recently with his take-no-prisoners oater The Hateful Eight, it’s more than just a theatrical release, it’s an event. (And in this case, literally, with Tarantino commandeering America’s cineplexes for his quixotic 70mm Roadshow project.)

Jennifer Lawrence Was, Like, This Close to Being in ‘The Hateful Eight’

by Charles Bramesco December 28, 2015 @ 9:27 AM
Jennifer Lawrence’s newest starring vehicle, the Joy Mangano sorta-biopic, sorta-a-bunch-of-other-movies-smashed-together Joy, went into wide release over this past weekend only to meet with a spate of middling reviews. Lawrence’s unquestioning and absolute allegiance to director David O. Russell would appear to suggest that audiences can look forward to lots more pictures in the vein of the not-quite-there Joy, the not-quite-there American Hustle, and the not-quite-there Silver Linings Playbook. But hop one parallel dimension over, and Lawrence is currently being showered with praise for one of her most memorable, risky roles in a film that’s generated quite a bit of awards buzz.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Is the Best Film of 2015, According to Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino’s tastes are…how should we say…a bit singular. In recent years, the director has declared under-seen indie Afternoon Delight, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and Toy Story 3 as number one on his top 10 lists in their respective years, and though he admits he doesn’t have time to see a lot of new releases, his preferences are often very interesting. This year, Tarantino has gone with a more conventional pick for his favorite film, and it’s one that many of you (and many critics associations) agree with.

Channing Tatum Sent Quentin Tarantino an Email Every Day for a Month About ‘The Hateful Eight’

How about some news regarding this month’s most highly-anticipated release that doesn’t have Star Wars in the title? Channing Tatum’s involvement with The Hateful Eight is one of the worst kept secrets, though Tatum, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Company have refused to reveal his actual role, inspiring plenty of speculation and nitpicking of the film’s trailers. We won’t spoil his part for you, but Tatum does have some delightful stories about his time working with Tarantino and the cast.

How ‘The Hateful Eight’ Connects to ‘Inglourious Basterds’

Quentin Tarantino is fond of connecting his films with one another via little details and character names, like Reservoir Dogs’ Vic Vega and Pulp Fiction’s Vincent Vega, or the Big Kahuna Burger chain and Red Apple cigarettes that appear in many of his films. If you’re curious about how the director’s wintry western is connected to the TCU (Tarantino Cinematic Universe), then The Hateful Eight’s Tim Roth has your answer.
