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.

Quentin Tarantino Says DEATH PROOF Is the “Worst” Film He’s Ever Made; Watch Full Directors Roundtable Interview

THR‘s roundtable interviews are always entertaining and this year’s director’s roundtable is one of the best.  It’s a one-hour conversation that involves Quentin Tarantino, Ben Affleck, Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David O. Russell, and Gus Van Sant.  There are a few highlights but the Internet is buzzing with Tarantino’s comments about retiring and his film Death Proof.

“I’m really well versed on a lot of directors’ careers, you know, and when you look at those last five films when they were past it, when they were too old, and they’re really out of touch with the times, whether it be William Wyler and ‘The Liberation of L.B. Jones’ or Billy Wilder with ‘Fedora’ and then ‘Buddy Buddy’ or whatever the hell. To me, it’s all about my filmography, and I want to go out with a terrific filmography,” he said. “[2007's] ‘Death Proof’ has got to be the worst movie I ever make. And for a left-handed movie, that wasn’t so bad, all right? — so if that’s the worst I ever get, I’m good. But I do think one of those out-of-touch, old, limp, flaccid-dick movies costs you three good movies as far as your rating is concerned.”

Below you can watch a clip of him talking about retirement and then the whole roundtable.

Red-Band Trailer for RZA’s THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

the-man-with-the-iron-fistsWell this is interesting, The Man with the Iron Fists is a movie I hadn’t heard of until now, and it’s produced by Quentin Tarantino, written by RZA and Eli Roth, and stars Russell Crowe.  Already I’m interested at the sweet poster and crazy concept, but watch this trailer, it’s mental.  Oh and I guess there’s a story in here too:

Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

The film should be released in 2012 sometime, check out the trailer below.

DJANGO UNCHAINED Trailer: Very Tarantino and Very Awesome

Django-Unchained

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.

Casting News: Emma Watson, Rhys Ifans, Kevin Costner and More

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

emma-watson Guillermo del Toro has is working on a film production for a live action version of Beauty and the Beast, and Harry Potter star Emma Watson is lined up to star.  This is a fitting project for Del Toro, but I can’t help remember the “modern” take on the story from earlier this year, Beastly.  It wasn’t good was it? [coming soon]

According to The Telegraph director Sam Medes has cast Rhys Ifans in Bond 23, which is finally happening and scheduled to start shooting next month.
Ifans is also playing The Lizard in the new Amazing Spider-Man film currently in production.

Variety is reporting Edward Norton is in negotiations to play the villain in The Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner. The film is being directed by Tony Gilroy and also has Rachel Weisz attached to star.  Not a lot of details about this Matt Damon-less Bourne movie at this time so stay tuned.

costner

Quentin Tarantino is in negotiations to cast Kevin Costner in his next film Django Unchained. The Cast so far includes Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio.  Costner will play a character named Ace Woody, “the sadistic trainer of the male fighting slaves who entertain the white patrons of Candyland as well as the female slaves who are forced to be prostitutes. The club and ranch are owned by Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and Ace Woody is the one who pits the “mandingo” fighters against one another, and has little qualms about mistreating and even killing the slaves who don’t measure up.” [deadline]

Costner will take the role after playing Pa Kent in the Superman reboot Man Of Steel [see].

15 Years After Jackie Brown, Tarantino Releases A Movie In December

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

django unchainedQuentin Tarantino returns with Django Unchained and is giving his latest work a Christmas 2012 release date [BOM].  Jackie Brown was released Christmas Day 1997 for people keeping score.  The Unchained cast is still coming together, and what we know so far of the plot is that Django Unchained is a spaghetti Western about a former Southern slave who attempts to rescue his wife from a cruel plantation owner, now that’s a family Christmas movie!

Leonardo DiCaprio is rumored to be in talks for the role of the evil slave owner, while Christoph Waltz, who QT masterfully cast in Inglourious Basterds, is expected to play a bounty hunter.  Samuel L. Jackson will narrate or play piano in a bar I’m sure.
