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 »
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 »
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. Before we see that footage debut, however, a Comic Con preview offers up a great new still from the film, featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Kurt Russell’s amazing facial hair, which should probably get its own SAG card.
Check out the new Hateful Eight image below, and read a few comments from writer/director Tarantino. Read More »
Even though fans may not be able to get a tease of what Marvel Studios has in store for the next few years at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, there’s still plenty of good stuff we’ll be waiting to get a glimpse at in a couple weeks.

Jurassic World is finally hitting theaters today, and as promised, here is my final interview with director Colin Trevorrow about the movie. As many of you know, I have talked to Colin two other times during the production of the film, once about the information leaks and fan backlash to some of those details and another time in an extensive interview when I visited the set of the film. My latest interview with Colin was conducted at the junket on the Universal back lot last week after having seen the movie.
In the interview, Colin talks about the Flight of the Navigator remake, how the voice cameos in the movie came about, the ideas of commercialization and sequels in the movie, how Steven Spielberg helped change the edit of the movie, the fan reaction to the trailers and the struggle to preserve surprises, how he met his writing partner Derek Connolly while working at Saturday Night Live, featherless dinosaurs in an age when science thinks different, and would he be interested in directing a Star Wars movie.
After the jump, you can read the whole interview (a couple of excerpts have run earlier in the week) which is virtually spoiler free (I have removed one question and answer which I will run next week after everyone has seen the film).

Quentin Tarantino is a standard-bearer for the preservation of film in filmmaking, from the use of celluloid rather than digital when shooting a movie to the projection of film prints at his “no digital allowed” New Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles. Tarantino shot his latest film, The Hateful Eight, in the elite 70mm format — in fact, he used an even more rare variant of the 70mm format, called Ultra Panavision 70, which results in a very wide image.
Having gone to all that effort to shoot the film in a rare format, Tarantino evidently wants to exhibit the film in the same large format. A new report says that he has helped put 70mm projectors equipped with the proper anamorphic gear into fifty theaters worldwide. Read More »
It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino steals from other movies in order to make the films that everyone loves to see him make. This isn’t really an insult to Tarantino as the filmmaker has said previously, “I steal from every single movie ever made. If my work has anything, it’s that I’m taking this from this and that from that and mixing them together.”
And if you’ve ever wondered what movies Tarantino is stealing from, a great visual guide has surfaced online to show you. See what movies Quentin Tarantino steals from after the jump! Read More »
