Quentin Tarantino doesn’t commission original scores for his films. Instead, the writer/director collects a huge amount of music from other films and popular music to assemble idiosyncratic soundtracks that have become as integral to the identity of his films as are the scripts and casts.
Tarantino has drawn heavily on the music of Ennio Morricone for many years, using tracks from prior Morricone scores in Kill Bill, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Now, for The Hateful Eight, Morricone will compose the first full original score for a Tarantino film, which will also be the composer’s first western score in 40 years. Read More »

So far the marketing machine for Antoine Fuqua‘s boxing flick Southpaw has really hit hard. Driven by a pounding soundtrack provided by Eminem, the film starring Jake Gyllenhaal looks like a familiar but powerful drama.
Now yet another new trailer has arrived, fueled by another new track by Eminem. This one features Gwen Stefani, and is called ‘Kings Never Die.’ Will Gyllenhaal find redemption and become king of the ring again? At the very least, it seems like this might get him the Oscar nomination that he should have gotten for his performance in last year’s Nightcrawler.

Quentin Tarantino is bringing his new film The Hateful Eight to Comic Con, which will mark the first time non-industry types have been able to see the movie in motion.

Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Kurt Russell’s amazing facial hair, which should probably get its own SAG card.

Alejandro Amenábar (The Others) returns this summer with Regression, his first feature in six years. Emma Watson stars as a young woman who accuses her father (David Dencik) of a crime, and Ethan Hawke is the detective assigned to the case.

Quentin Tarantino‘s new film The Hateful Eight sounds in many ways like a return to his roots: it’s nearly a closed-room argument, with an ensemble cast battling out their differences in, if Tarantino’s reputation is anything to go by, increasingly violent ways. That ensemble cast is perhaps better than ever, with Tim Roth providing a link to Tarantino’s debut Reservoir Dogs, and Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, with a small turn from Channing Tatum.
And then there’s Kurt Russell, who looks more awesome than ever in this role — and that’s saying a lot, considering his history. See him and just about everyone else in new Hateful Eight images below. Read More »

Lego is the biggest, most successful toy company in the world. But it wasn’t always that way. Just a decade ago, the company was in danger of failing. New leadership had to redirect and refocus the brand before it began to soar. Then, with last year’s release of The Lego Movie, Lego was brought to the mainstream in a way it never had been before.
Before that even happened, filmmakers Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge were on the ground floor. They were documenting the world of Lego for a film now called A Lego Brickumentary (It was formerly called Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary.) The film hit the festival circuit last year but is now set for nationwide release, both in theaters and online, on July 31. The first trailer for the film, which is narrated by Jason Bateman, is now online and it’s a must watch not only for fans of Lego, but people who just don’t get the appeal, which is surely lots of you.
