National Board Of Review picks The Irishman as the year's best film

Put on your golden Oscar hat and get ready to complain about snubs and flubs: It’s officially Awards Season, the happiest time of the year—or at least it is for the people who win awards and those of us who care about the outfits that celebrities wear on the various red carpets. The National Board Of Review kicked things off this morning with a fabulous gala event that was actually a...

Zoë Bell on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's trickiest stunts

Zoë Bell on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's trickiest stunts

Zoë Bell is no stranger to working with Quentin Tarantino. The New Zealand-born stunt performer and coordinator has been working with the director since she doubled Uma Thurman’s The Bride in Kill Bill parts one and two. Though she does pop up on camera briefly in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, her work on his latest film was mostly behind the camera, where she served as supervising stunt...

How did Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's costumes capture 1969?

How did Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's costumes capture 1969?

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood takes great pains to capture exactly what Los Angeles looked like around the time of the Sharon Tate murders, down to what movies were playing at the Cinerama Dome that week. The film’s set decorators, props teams, and CGI masters all worked to create locations that fit the bill, and Arianne Phillips, the movie’s costume designer, worked with her team on sourcing...

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's youngest star hasn't even seen the whole movie yet

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's youngest star hasn't even seen the whole movie yet

As Trudi Fraser, 10-year-old Julia Butters brings levity and maturity to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, playing the sensible foil to Leonardo DiCaprio’s selfish, aging actor Rick Dalton. She’s a great addition to the cast of Quentin Tarantino players that dot the film—but, as she says in our interview above, she hasn’t even seen the whole movie yet.

The A.V. Club sat down with Butters and...

Clever schemer Jamie Foxx convinced Idris Elba not to star in Django Unchained

Clever schemer Jamie Foxx convinced Idris Elba not to star in Django Unchained

Everyone has heard stories about how cutthroat the entertainment industry is, but apparently even ostensible nice guys like Jamie Foxx aren’t above a little manipulating if it means landing a big role. During a Toronto International Film Festival panel with his Just Mercy co-star Michael B. Jordan (via IndieWire), Foxx revealed that he tried to talk Idris Elba out of starring in Quentin...

Brad Pitt confirms that Tarantino is considering a Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood miniseries

Brad Pitt confirms that Tarantino is considering a Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood miniseries

At the beginning of August , we reported that Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood actor Nicholas Hammond had claimed on a podcast appearance that director Quentin Tarantino was considering a “four-hour Netflix version” of his alternate-history Hollywood story, ostensibly to make some room for the many scenes (and appearances from famous actors) that got cut out of the theatrical version. That...

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the latest to dunk on Quentin Tarantino's vision of his friend Bruce Lee

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the latest to dunk on Quentin Tarantino's vision of his friend Bruce Lee

The discourse surrounding the portrayal of martial arts legend Bruce Lee in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood continues apace today, with The Hollywood Reporter publishing a piece from Lee’s long-time friend, co-star, and student Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, blasting Tarantino’s vision of the character as both “sloppy and somewhat racist.”

Abdul-Jabbar—a polymath whose various life...

Quentin Tarantino stands by Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood's arrogant Bruce Lee

Quentin Tarantino stands by Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood's arrogant Bruce Lee

The controversial saga of Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood ’s brief Bruce Lee scene is showing no signs of stopping, with director Quentin Tarantino now stepping in to say that he doesn’t think the scene is quite as inaccurate as some of its critics have claimed. This all started shortly after the movie came out, when Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, explained that she was disappointed by the...

Quentin Tarantino says he's still stopping after one more "epilogue-y" film

Quentin Tarantino says he's still stopping after one more "epilogue-y" film

Quentin Tarantino has been saying for years now that he intends to retire from filmmaking after putting 10 movies on his personal scorecard, of which, this summer’s Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood would be the ninth. And while there have been jokes about him quitting early—or slightly more serious suggestions of slipping a “doesn’t count” Star Trek movie in there somewhere down the line—he...

Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood's Bruce Lee scene was even longer until Brad Pitt objected

Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood's Bruce Lee scene was even longer until Brad Pitt objected

Last week , we reported that Shannon Lee—daughter of legendary martial arts master/actor Bruce Lee—was offended by the way her father was depicted in Quentin Tarantino’s movie biz- throwback celebration Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. In the film, Mike Moh’s Bruce Lee challenges Brad Pitt’s stuntman character Cliff Booth to a three-round fight, with Lee kicking Booth’s butt in the first...

It's Rumor Time: Tarantino might be planning a Netflix extended cut for Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood

It's Rumor Time: Tarantino might be planning a Netflix extended cut for Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino has been refreshingly candid about all the material he was forced to cut from his recent Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood , going so far as to include a credit for his old pal Tim Roth (cut) in the film’s closing crawl. That acknowledgment of edited scenes, actors, and more from the director’s sprawling ‘60s odyssey has led to a rumor circulating this week, suggesting that...

Quentin Tarantino curated a 4-hour playlist of songs from his own movies, just for you

There’s a lot to love about Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood , the ninth (-ish?) film from Quentin Tarantino: Leonardo DiCaprio’s insecurity-driven meltdowns, Brad Pitt shirtless and somehow even more attractive (and hilarious) than he’s ever been, Margaret Qualley’s weird-ass hippie vibe, the dog. As with previous Tarantino films, it’s hard to discuss his latest without praising the...

Shannon Lee says Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood made her father look like an "arrogant asshole"

Shannon Lee says Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood made her father look like an "arrogant asshole"

In Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood , Mike Moh briefly pops up as Bruce Lee, challenging Brad Pitt’s character to a fight on the set of The Green Hornet. Pitt’s character, Cliff Booth, is the longtime stuntman for Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton, and he and Bruce Lee get into the sort of “no, I’m the coolest” argument that only a pair of old-fashioned Hollywood tough guys...

Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood... annotated

Let’s get this out of the way first: This is not a complete recounting of every single pop culture reference in Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood . To claim as much would be hubris. No, this is simply the best The A.V. Club could do after two back-to-back viewings of Quentin Tarantino’s latest, the second of which was devoted wholly to noting every movie poster, real-life character, radio ad,...

James Marsden’s reported role as Burt Reynolds in Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood got cut

Quentin Tarantino’s new love letter to Tinseltown, Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, features many depictions of real-life movie stars like Sharon Tate, Bruce Lee, and Steve McQueen. One famous face apparently didn’t make it to the final cut, however, and Collider today reports on what that depiction would have entailed: James Marsden as Burt Reynolds.

Reynolds himself was going to appear in the...

Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood is Quentin Tarantino’s wistful midlife crisis movie

Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood is Quentin Tarantino’s wistful midlife crisis movie

The first hint that Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood is a more wistful film than it may appear is in its title. Starting with the magic words that mark the opening of a fairy tale, followed by the bridge of a pensive ellipsis, the title evokes the empty, bone-deep ache that underlies all nostalgia, a longing for a half-remembered moment in time that may never have really existed at all. If any...

Quentin Tarantino discusses his abandoned Vega brothers movie

Quentin Tarantino discusses his abandoned Vega brothers movie

Almost every filmmaker has at least one or two ideas that never made it into development. With someone like Quentin Tarantino—a well-known cinephile who is incredibly specific in all things—those abandoned ideas can be particularly fascinating, as is the case with his unmade Pulp Fiction prequel. In the almost-25 years since his cult classic hit theaters, Tarantino has occasionally spoken...

Quentin Tarantino talks retirement as his Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood stars crash Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Taping your late-night talk show right on Hollywood Boulevard has its perks—both for Jimmy Kimmel and his audience. For one thing, the nearby glitzy movie theaters are go-to destinations for blockbuster premieres, making each night’s audience members candidates for one of those “let’s invite everyone in the building” PR stunts. That’s what happened on Monday’s show when Kimmel’s crowd was ...

Quentin Tarantino says that, actually, "Pulp Fiction in space" is exactly what his Star Trek movie will be

Quentin Tarantino says that, actually, "Pulp Fiction in space" is exactly what his Star Trek movie will be

It’s beginning—against all odds—to seem increasingly possible that Quentin Tarantino might actually soon be making an in-canon, certified, R-rated Star Trek movie , complete with, like, phasers and shit. And while certain folks more intimately connected with the franchise (namely Simon Pegg, who both stars in, and writes for, it) have tried to downplay how radically Tarantino might stretch...
