After a long delay due to a much documented script leak (and some legal wranglings due to said leak), Quentin Tarantino recently confirmed that he will be making ‘The Hateful Eight’ his next film. At Comic-Con this past weekend, Tarantino appeared at a panel to speak on his “Django Unchained”/”Zorro” crossover comic and confirmed the film is a go.
Hot on the heels of this confirmation, the latest issue of Empire magazine features the above full page one sheet for the film, with a “Special Roadshow Engagement” for the movie promised for 2015. Also, the poster confirms that ‘The Hateful Eight’ is actually being filmed in Super Cinemascope. The opening to the original ‘Hateful Eight’ script said: A breathtaking 70MM filmed (as is the whole movie) snow-covered mountain range. … Then in the bottom left of this big 70MM SUPER CINEMASCOPE FRAME, we see a STAGECOACH being pulled by a team of SIX HORSES rip snorting through the bottom of the landscape.

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits: Rocket (Bradley Cooper), a gun-toting raccoon; Groot (Vin Diesel), a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora (Zoe Saldana); and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. From writer-director James Gunn, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ opens in the UK and Ireland on July 31st before opening in the US on August 1st. The likes of Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Josh Brolin, Ophelia Lovibond, Gregg Henry, Marama Corlett, Emmett J. Scanlan and Enzo Cilenti also star.
When you were first approached about ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ what did you think about Groot – a character with only a three word vocabulary? And how did your casting come about, because I know you had been linked to Marvel for a while….?
Vin Diesel: First of all, I had to do something. I found myself in a very interesting place last summer. I’d gone to Comic-Con for ‘Riddick,’ and someone in the audience at Hall H said – and it was the last question, I was just about to leave the stage, but I felt guilty because there was a man standing in an Iron Man costume standing by the mic wanting to ask a question. So I was like, “Let us hear this guys question, he’s been standing there a while.” And in front of the whole of Hall H he says, “This isn’t about ‘Riddick’… what do you envision your role or relationship with Marvel will be?” And I had no answer to that (laughs). And then the next day Kevin Feige was at Hall H and they asked him, “What is the Vin Diesel/Marvel connection?” Two weeks later, when we were talking about it initially, we were talking about something that lived in 2016/2017, “Phase 3″, a character we could build from the ground up. Something we could develop together – which is what everyone knows I like to do.
From Lionsgate comes this new UK trailer and poster for the fantasy/thriller ‘Horns.’ Directed by Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, High Tension) and based on Joe Hill’s popular novel of the same name, ‘Horns’ follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks, and has become an international bestseller. The likes of Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Max Minghella and James Remar also star. ‘Horns’ opens on October 31st.
