After kicking around development hell for years, The Weinstein Company is finally getting a biopic about legendary comedian Richard Pryor off the ground, and the cast has been finalized for production to begin in March.
As reported just over a year ago, Mike Epps will be taking the lead role as the late Richard Pryor, the man responsible for inspiring a whole new generation of comics and changing the face of stand-up comedy forever. In addition, some of the primary supporting cast has been confirmed and expanded as Eddie Murphy also joins the Richard Pryor biopic. Read More »
Quentin Tarantino gave a wide-ranging interview that ran over the weekend, and the outspoken filmmaker had plenty to say about the state of the industry, in addition to speaking about his upcoming film The Hateful Eight.
The most interesting comments in Tarantino’s talk are about that new movie, as he says that it chiefly concerns racial conflict, and as such is very relevant to the strife we’ve seen as cities like Ferguson and Baltimore react to killings of young black men and women by police.
We’ve highlighted eight of the most interesting things Tarantino had to say about his new film, his career, and the state of the industry overall, and you can read those below. Read More »
There are seven posters representing the snow and the eight lead characters of Quentin Tarantino‘s new western, and the full set of The Hateful Eight posters is now out in the wild.
Two of those characters, John Ruth and Daisy Domergue, played by Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh, were featured on the first poster release, and over the last few days more sheets have been released. There’s now one each for the rest of the cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Demian Bichir.

Many years ago, Mikael Håfström (1408, Escape Plan) made Shanghai, a ’40s-set mystery with a splashy international cast that included his 1408 star John Cusack along with Chow Yun-fat, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Franka Potente, Gong Li, David Morse and Ken Watanabe. The film saw release in many countries, but sat on the shelf in the US after being purchased by — you guessed it — The Weinstein Company.
Now the film is finally poised for what amounts to a too little/too late release in the US, where it will ultimately end up as a Tuesday night Netflix watch for many audiences. But there’s a new domestic Shanghai trailer to show it off, which you can see below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Here’s the first real trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth film, The Hateful Eight, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern as a collection of dangerous, unsavory, and possibly untrustworthy characters all holed up in a haberdashery to ride out a blizzard.
When all those people are stuck in a room together, things get tense, threats are made, and some bullets are almost certainly going to fly. And because this is a Tarantino film, you know some colorful dialogue will fill the air as well. With this cast, we can’t wait to hear it. And in case you had any doubt that Robert Richardson‘s 70mm cinematography would be incredible, this footage will set things straight, and quick.
This trailer is great; check it out below. Read More »
In Burnt, Bradley Cooper plays a chef who has had success and lost it, and is on the climb back up to the top. But he may have some big personal hurdles to face, potentially including drugs, and definitely including his own nature. Wait a second… heaven’t we seen this before? 2005, Fox, Kitchen Confidential, in which Cooper plays a chef, inspired by Anthony Bourdain, who nearly loses everything thanks to addiction, and then works his way back to the top.
What’s different here? Well, the supporting cast also features Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson, working under the direction of John Wells (August: Osage County); the script is by Steven Knight (Locke, Peaky Blinders) and Michael Kalesniko (Iron Sky, Private Parts).
Check out the first Burnt teaser below. Read More »

Whatever gives you the heebie-jeebies — monstrous mothers, twin children, grotesque masks, writhing cockroaches — the first Goodnight Mommy trailer has it.

Watch the Goodnight Mommy trailer after the jump. Read More »
While we can’t always see footage shown at Comic Con (official releases akin to the Suicide Squad drop are still not guaranteed) but more and more often we’re able to at least show off videos of big panels minus any footage debuts. Here is the full panel for the new Quentin Tarantino film, The Hateful Eight, which will hit theaters this coming Christmas.
And while other panels were about character descriptions, easter eggs and costumes, this one was for the hardcore film crowd — it was about lenses and projection, and even got into Tarantino’s irritation with the script leak that nearly canceled this film. And it was probably the only Comic Con panel with a mention of Luchino Visconti. Watch the full Hateful Eight Comic Con panel below. Read More »
