The video below might not be up for long (NBC doesn’t care to be liked) but it’s worth finding if you have to. Saturday Night Live had a parody this past weekend titled Djesus Uncrossed. You get it right?
That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed. Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture). Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.
The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:
Here is the final trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, there isn’t a lot of new footage you haven’t seen from the previous trailers, but it’s still fun to watch. I’ll be checking this movie out his holiday season if for no other reason than DiCaprio’s crazy performance.
The movie also stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Here is a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, it’s a bit more revealing than the past trailers as it sets up what’s going to happen at the beginning and middle of the movie. The cast looks to have had a lot of fun in their respective roles, especially Leonardo DiCaprio who looks and sounds like a maniac.
Adult supervision is required when Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Watch the trailer below:
It’s finally here, our first look at Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, his first feature since Inglourious Basterds. It’s everything you would expect: bloody, funny, and accompanied by a great soundtrack. His films often divide people (many I know were annoyed by Basterds) but if you ask me, he still offers something completely different from what’s playing any day or year in the theater.
With his latest Django Unchained Christoph Waltz plays a bounty hunter out to kill a group of masked, slave-running brothers. The only man to have seen their faces is a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx), who agrees to help the bounty hunter in exchange for both his freedom, and the rescue of his wife from evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
It’s great to see DiCaprio in a role that doesn’t require him to have lost a wife and cry (Inception, Shutter Island, Revolutionary Road), he’s going to steal the show I bet. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, M.C. Gainey, Walton Goggins, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson,and Tom Savini.
Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
The first trailer for Roman Polanski‘s Carnage is here for your viewing pleasure. It’s based on a play called “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza and follows two sets of parents who come together to discuss a fight between their children. Things don’t go too well as you will see in the trailer which is filled with great humor and cringe worthy moments. Who knew parents would come off as ridiculous and childlike when it comes to defending their own?
The great cast includes of Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet.
Carnage will play at the Venice Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. It opens December 16th. Watch the trailer:

Paul W.S. Anderson’s 3D version of The Three Musketeers will open October 14th, and yes I am experiencing deva ju as well. For a story that never seemed to interest anyone as a movie [The Three Musketeers 1993] and [The Musketeer 2001] they are really trying for it this time…three musketeers meet three dimensions!
Synopsis: The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D.
Recently at the the LA Italia Festival, actor Franco Nero talked to reporters and got people listening when he mentioned Quentin Tarantino‘s name. He was talking about his next project saying “The film will be called The Angel, The Bad, and The Wise and is a tribute to Sergio Leone. It’s a movie that contains humor, lots of action, but also a great plot. We have already been signed by a dozen people who will be part of project. Among the filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino , Keith Carradine, Treat Williams, fifteen people in all Americans who want to do this movie and so we are trying to produce it outside of Italy.”
According to updates from around the web [AICN], this title might be wrong (lost in translation). I wouldn’t take any QT news regarding his next film seriously until I was standing in line with a ticket, even then I would be hesitant. The man is known to sit on ideas for a very long time, as for this spaghetti Western starring Christoph Waltz, let’s hope it doesn’t take eight years. Tarantino likes to be authentic so I imagine he could get a lot of Italian talent on set, that and Treat Williams!

They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds – including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christopher Waltz) – Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love. (more…)
