Tarantino Next Film ‘The Hateful Eight’

Posted on


People are excited to hear that Tarantino will be writing and directing a new western called The Hateful Eight. With the critical and financial success of Django Unchained it is not a surprise that his next film would be another western. Django Uncahined is Tarantino’s highest grossing film to date. It may be premature to talk about this as it may fall through but I hope it doesn’t. Django Unchained was a really great film and I think that Tarantino will be able to deliver another great film. I do also think that this could allow Tarantino to make improvements. Django Unchained did have Taratino’s style stamped all over it but I would like to see him go a bit easier on his style and make a western that is more conventional. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens though.

Nothing in this project is a fact yet but the early rumors state that Christoph Waltz and Bruce Dern will star in the film having roles written specifically for them. The rumors also speculate that the film will shoot this summer. People are disappointed that Tarantino will not be working on Kill Bill Volume 3, however I would rather see an original film rather than a sequel to a film series that I felt had a definitive ending. The title of the film also suggests that it is a reference to the 60s film The Magnificent Seven.

I assume the film will come out in 2015 but we may have to wait a bit longer  as the film currently has no studio or distributor backing it. I also hope that this film will see Tarantino reunite with Tim Roth who he has collaborated with before but not in recent years.

Are you excited about this announcement? Let me know what you think by commenting below.

Godzilla Teaser Trailer Review

Video Posted on

Hollywood keeps on dishing out blockbuster movies with massive budgets and amazing special effects. Also There are lots of reboots in effect at the moment either due to be released or being developed. Some people say this is selling out and I do think it is unoriginal however due to the advancement in visual effects it is great to see stories retold with better visual and special effects.

Godzilla has been shown on screen a few times from films in the 1950s to the big budget film that came out in 1998 starring Matthew Broderick. Despite receiving mixed reviews Godzilla from 1998 left the story on a cliffhanger and people did want more. 16 years on we are going to get a new film. This is not a sequel but may have references to the previous film.

The trailer for me was really impressive. Despite this is called a teaser trailer I felt we got plenty of information. and we did actually get a good look at the monster. I thought the silence towards the end of the trailer followed by the iconic roar of the monster was really cool and I already know lots of people are really excited for this film just on the roar of the monster.

The teaser is made up of many different clips that don’t give the plot away but it is clear that Godzilla has come from somewhere and is wrecking havoc. Pacific Rim came out recently and dealt with giants monsters attacking cities but I know that was not well received at all. I have not seen Pacific Rim yet but I am sure Godzilla will be very different and be more appealing to the audience as this is a familiar story using a very iconic monster.

The film stars Arron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Ken Wantanabe and David Strathairn. The film is due to be released 16th May 2014 so we only have a few months to wait before seeing this iconic monster hit the big screen again. We will also get a few more trailers by then so those unsatisfied with the teaser will be able to see more before its footage before it is released.

What did you think of the trailer? Please comment and thanks for reading.
