Review: The Dark Tower

If you've read Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower saga you know it's a weird, wonderful, flawed, brilliant, mess of an epic that touches so many genres it's hard to classify it at all. It bounces from western to science fiction to...

The Dark Tower receives another trailer, still has a tower

Okay, no, Andy Serkis is not actually playing the tower, much to my own disappointment. Though, I'm sure if he did, there'd be some article praising how he gave the tower some much-deserved characterization, and truly brought the role to li...

The Dark Tower receives its first trailer

First, if you haven't read Stephen King's The Dark Tower series go and do that. It's fantastic, and his greatest undertaking as a writer. It's a massive western, science fiction, fantasy, met narrative that can get unwieldy, but i...

 
 
Review: Tampopo photo

Review: Tampopo

Prior to this week, the last time I saw Juzo Itami's 1985 food comedy Tampopo was in the mid-90s. I remembered so little of the movie save for the fact that I enjoyed it. Some isolated scenes are easy to recall, though. There's an etiquette...

HBO's Westworld gets a new trailer

Perhaps you've been feeling the fantasy blues on HBO of late. Game of Thrones been off the air for over two full months. True Blood for over two years. Maybe you've been hankering for some HBO-flavored western, and gosh darnit, Deadwood kee...

Review: Hell or High Water

Hollywood is a strange place. It bombards you with marketing materials 24/7, always promising the next best, biggest and brightest, only to deliver on best and/or brightest with less regularity than a really good Major League Baseball batti...

HBO says Deadwood movie in the works for real

It actually didn't work so well for Entourage.  When shows go off the air its often popular for fans to clamor for more in the form of a movie, even when that show concluded on its own and probably shouldn't go on. HBO's Deadwood  ...

First look at Idris Elba in The Dark Tower

If everything goes to plan Stephen King's Dark Tower adaptations will be a long running movie and TV franchise and it all officially kicks off with this image (and a cover) of Idris Elba as the gunslinger Roland and a few details from ...

 
 
Magnificent Seven photo

First trailer for The Magnificent Seven concerns

When you're discussing The Magnificent Seven you're discussing some serious pedigree. The movies it is based on are two of the greatest of the genres (samurai and western) so remaking it is a daunting task. I thought that with Antoine ...

First look at Denzel Washington in The Magnificent Seven

As far as remakes go (or in this case remakes of remakes) it's pretty easy to actually get excited for The Magnificent Seven. Antoine Fuqua is directing Denzel Washinton in a Western. After The Equalizer that's pretty easy to get excit...

Matthew McConaughey up for villain role in The Dark Tower

If you said to me that Matthew McConaughey was going to star in The Dark Tower films being made I'd instantly think he'd be playing Roland, the Stephen King series's protagonist. However, Variety is reporting that he's been offered the...

 
 
 
Hateful Eight photo

First teaser trailer for The Hateful Eight leaves us chilly

So I'm guessing I'll be hitting up an unpopular opinion here, but this first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight isn't really getting me that excited. It's probably the trailer itself and nothing to do with the film, but ...

New Hateful Eight image rides into town

EW is giving its Comic Con preview this week and that means it has a ton of new looks including all those first looks at Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Just slight less exciting (or more, depending on your opinion of superhero movies)...

 
 
Slow West photo

Review: Slow West

John Maclean's feature debut, Slow West, is an ambitious one. It is a pastiche of the classic American westerns – a celebration of the genre – and comparisons and parallels to master directors like Quentin Tarantino, the Coen br...

First images for Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight

If ever a film had a strange road to the screen it's The Hateful Eight, but after a cancellation and a strange live reading it is coming and we now have our first look at the titular eight. EW brings to us the line up of all eight character...

The first trailer for Slow West is visually stunning

A24 should be everybody's favorite movie distribution/production company at this point. With movies like Spring Breakers, The Bling Ring, Enemy, Under the Skin, The Rover, Locke, Obvious Child, A Most Violent Year and the upcoming Ex Machi...

 
 
The Homesman photo

Review: The Homesman

Life in the early days of pioneer life was harsh and unforgiving. The loneliness and desperation to make things work was enough to drive people to either do anything they could, or go mad trying. The glimpses of frontier life in Tommy Lee J...

Denzel Washington to star in Magnificent Seven remake

A remake of The Magnificent Seven has been in the works for years now with Tom Cruise at one point attached (maybe he still is). But with Tarantino getting ready to drop The Hateful Eight, a Tarantino homage to that very...

A Million Ways Review photo

Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West

Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut, Ted, was a welcome surprise. It was a mix of a charming friendship, un-ironic love of the 80s, and gratuitous amount of raunchy humor. Like the best episodes of MacFarlane's Family Guy, it managed a fine...

Western The Salvation gets a trailer

It's always interesting to check out a Western by a director who isn't American. The genre is so ingrained in American culture that seeing it tackled from an outside perspective is always interesting. This one will be Dutch as the trailer ...

Tarantino drafting new Hateful Eight script

The drama over Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight has been pretty crazy. After the script leaked online he swore he was going to put the film on the back burner, and then decide to hold a one-time only reading of the film in L.A thi...

Green band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West

Was the red band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West just too much for you? Then you're probably not going to want to see the movie because it's Seth McFarlane and that's what he's all about, but if you're still interested f...

First trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West

I'm not sure how I feel about the first (Red Band) trailer for Seth MacFarlane's Ted follow up, A Million Ways to Die in the West. While Ted surprisingly bent buddy movie tropes and reveled in nostalgia, A Million Ways at first sounds like...

Quentin Tarantino is doing another Western, apparently

On the Tonight Show last night, Quentin Tarantino apparently announced that his next film would be a Western. That's great! I loved Django Unchained, it's no Inglorious Basterds, but it's an instant classic. Top two Tarantino, if you ask me...
