Channing Tatum Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantino started rehearsals for his western The Hateful Eight this week, and it turns out that his cast may have a surprise or two. We’ve assumed that the cast of the contained western potboiler might feature primarily actors who took place in the live-read of the script a few months ago. But now Channing Tatum is looking at a role in the film. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino Christopher Nolan

Odds are if you read a site like this, you’re going to see Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar no matter what. Whether the reviews are good or bad doesn’t matter. You just want to see what Nolan has in store in his epic sci-fi drama.

And while some of the critical response has been varied, one group which seems to be wholly Nolan’s side is one comprised of his fellow filmmakers. Names like Rian Johnson, Brad Bird, Paul Thomas Anderson and Edgar Wright have all praised the film. Now, Quentin Tarantino has heaped even more accolades on it. He likens the work to two filmmakers who bring to mind something very different and specific. Read the Quentin Tarantino Interstellar quote below. Read More »

Hateful Eight Jennifer Jason Leigh

So far, info on the cast for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight has been little more than speculation. While we have a good idea that actors such as Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walton Goggins will have roles in the film, thanks in part to their participation in the live-read of the script, nothing has been officially revealed. Now for The Hateful Eight Jennifer Jason Leigh is set as the first official cast member. She’ll play Daisy Domergue, a woman wanted for murder who begins the film in the clutches of a bounty hunter.

Infographic: Chronological ‘Kill Bill’ Timeline

Noah Smith - Kill Bill Timeline 1

Quentin Tarantino loves telling stories out of sequence. From his very first film, the director has written and edited his films with some pieces out of order, creating dramatic irony, shock value, heightened drama and more. He also makes the audience engage more with the film as we piece together the hows and whys of questions like when did Mr. Orange meet Mr. White, how does Vincent Vega know Mia Wallace, how did O-Ren gain power, etc. Viewing a Tarantino film multiple times then becomes essential, simply because once you know how things play out, you begin to see the layering he’s created throughout.

Designer Noah Daniel Smith knows this. He appreciates it. But he also appreciates how awesome it can look when you put the scenes in order. Two years after making a chronological timeline of Pulp FictionSmith has now put Kill Bill in chronological order for a new poster. Check out the full Kill Bill Timeline below. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino New Beverly

UPDATE: Tickets are now on sale for the Pulp Fiction/Professional double feature. 

Late summer left Los Angeles repertory fans scratching their heads as the long-running New Beverly Cinema abruptly closed for the month of September with the promise of renovations and new programming to come starting in October. As it turns out, Quentin Tarantino, who owns the theater building and has long provided financial backing to the New Bev, decided to take over programming the theater, ditching a recently-installed digital projector and committing to film-only projection. This week, the theater reopens and the first New Beverly programming under Tarantino’s stewardship has been announced.
