Quentin Tarantino Announces That He and Wife Daniella Are Expecting Their First Child
Maybe it’s a sign that he really is thinking about retirement. Quentin Tarantino and his wife, Daniella, announced today that they’re expecting their first child.

The official statement, made to People Magazine, is brief and to the point: “Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are very delighted to announce that they are expecting a baby.”

Tarantino, 56, and the 35-year-old Israeli model-singer have been on the road in recent months to promote “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood,” which has made $183 million worldwide to date and is likely to score multiple Oscar nominations.

No word on a due date for the couple, who met at the Jerusalem Film Festival during his promotional tour for “Inglorious Basterds” in 2009 and began dating in 2016. They married nine months ago.

Tarantino has repeatedly hinted that he’s coming to the end of his filmmaking career, having long said he wanted to direct a total of 10 movies.

'Fast & Furious' Spin-Off, 'Hobbs & Shaw', Off to $180 Million Global Launch
The Fast & Furious franchise has yet again delivered a #1 opener with the franchise spin-off Hobbs & Shaw taking the top spot at this weekend's box office. Overall the weekend showed improvement over the same weekend last year for the third straight week in a row and on top of Hobbs & Shaw, continued strong performances from The Lion King, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the platform release of A24's The Farewell helped what has been a bit of a late summer surge at the domestic box office. Universal's Hobbs & Shaw debuted in 4,253 theaters this weekend (the second widest release in the Fast & Furious franchise) with an estimated $60.8 million, which is right in line with the studio's pre-weekend expectations. The $200 million production also received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and currently holds a strong, 90% audience score on RottenTomatoes. Of that audience, 58% were male, which lines up with

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Races to $5.8 Million on Thursday Night
Universal’s “Hobbs & Shaw” has launched to an impressive $5.8 million at 3,400 North American locations in Thursday night previews.

The action-laden tentpole, the first spinoff from the formidable Fast & Furious franchise, is opening at 4,253 sites and stars Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw.

Forecasts see “Hobbs & Shaw” handily topping the domestic box office with about $60 million, with Disney’s third weekend of “The Lion King” in the $30 million to $40 million range.

'Fast & Furious' Spin-Off, 'Hobbs & Shaw', Ready to Race to a #1 Weekend Finish
It's time to get Fast & Furious in theaters once again, though this time the whole gang isn't here as Universal has spun-off from the primary franchise with the characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in Hobbs & Shaw. The film will easily take the #1 spot at this weekend's box office followed by the continued success of Disney's The Lion King. Additionally, eyes will be on Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, eager to see how the film follows up the director's largest opening to date. It has been two years since the last Fast & Furious film and, in some ways, it won't be for another year that we actually get a "true" Fast & Furious film as this weekend's Hobbs & Shaw is a spin-off with characters introduced well after the franchise got its start 18 years ago. Starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the title characters,

Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw — headlined by the muscular duo of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham — is revving up to speed past holdovers The Lion King and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to claim the top spot at the weekend box office.

Tracking suggests a domestic debut in the $60 million-$65 million range, a solid start—more bullish box office pundits suggest well north of $70 million. Worldwide, it should approach ...

Ben Affleck’s ‘Batman’ Film Would Have Focused On The “Insanity” Of Arkham Asylum

Ben Affleck’s ‘Batman’ Film Would Have Focused On The “Insanity” Of Arkham Asylum
There aren’t very many cinematographers in the same class as Robert Richardson. Not only is he a big collaborator with director Quentin Tarantino, with the most recent ‘Once Upon a Time’ sporting Richardson’s work, but he’s also a three-time Oscar-winning director of photography for his work with directors like Oliver Stone and Martin Scorsese. Needless to say, Richardson has no trouble finding work and is basically at the point where he can pick and choose his own projects, including a ‘Batman‘ film.

Can ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’ Coexist at Box Office?

Can ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’ Coexist at Box Office?
Looking ahead as the calendar turns to August, this coming weekend will be the last big one of the summer box office season. “The Lion King,” now a freshly-minted $1 billion hit, will continue to be a presence, “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” enters a crucial second weekend and Universal sends in its summer tentpole, “Hobbs & Shaw.”

“Hobbs & Shaw” isn’t looking like it will make “Jurassic World” numbers… at least domestically. The “Fast & Furious” spinoff is projected to see an opening in the low $60 million range, with Universal estimating a $57-60 million domestic launch. By comparison, 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” opened to $98.7 million.

But over the last eight years, starting with “Fast Five,” the “Fast & Furious” series has taken more and more of its success from overseas. For “Fate of the Furious,” which made over $1 billion, only 18.3% of its total grosses came from domestic moviegoers.

‘Once Upon A Time’ Scores Biggest Opening Ever For Quentin Tarantino

‘Once Upon A Time’ Scores Biggest Opening Ever For Quentin Tarantino
Thank goodness for Quentin Tarantino and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” At least that’s exactly what the folks at Sony and film fans hoping for more original films are thinking. In a summer dominated by superhero films, remakes, and sequels (aka whatever Disney releases), Tarantino scored a big win for an original film with an R-rating this weekend. But of course, it still wasn’t enough to topple “The Lion King.” But hey, film fans will take what they can get.

How ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’ Turned Back the Clock on L.A.’s Streets

  • The Wrap
How ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’ Turned Back the Clock on L.A.’s Streets
Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” as its name suggests, is a fantasy rooted not in a faraway land in time, but in a city millions live in at a time still within living memory. It depicts a piece of Hollywood history as Quentin Tarantino would have liked it to be. All the good stuff from the real ’60s is there — Khj radio, 75-cent movie theaters, margaritas at Casa Vega — and all the ugly realities are pushed to the background or erased entirely, replaced with more good stuff forged from nostalgia.

That fond, almost elegiac depiction of a time gone by extends to how Tarantino and his production designer, Barbara Ling, went about portraying the 1969 Los Angeles that Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) inhabit. There’s no smog, you’re more likely to see a pretty girl in denim shorts than a homeless man, and all

'Lion King' Repeats at #1 While Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Rings Up $40M Debut

'Lion King' Repeats at #1 While Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Rings Up $40M Debut
While the weekend wasn't quite as large as anticipated, it was still the second straight weekend to top the same weekend last year. Leading the way for a second weekend in a row was Disney's The Lion King as it will soon top $1 billion worldwide, followed by a $40 million debut for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, serving as the director's largest three-day debut to date. Additionally, A24's The Farewell found a spot in the top ten playing in just 135 locations while both Spider-Man: Far from Home and Aladdin topped $1 billion globally this weekend. Disney's The Lion King found itself atop the weekend box office yet again, though it fell much harder than expected in its second weekend. With an estimated $75.5 million, the remake of the animated classic dipped -60.6% in its sophomore frame as the film's domestic total now stands over $351 million. While the

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood:’ What Real Movies Inspired Rick Dalton’s Fake Films?

Rick Dalton, the actor played by Leonardo DiCaprio in “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood,” does not exist. But he feels like he could, because director Quentin Tarantino has mapped out an entire filmography for Dalton that plausibly places him within a changing Hollywood in 1969.

The fake movie scenes and posters Tarantino has created for Dalton are a portrait of a certain type of actor in the ’60s: a handsome, ruggedly masculine type who would soon be replaced as the default Hollywood leading man by a more androgynous aesthetic inspired by the emerging counterculture. Tarantino has said on several occasions that Rick Dalton’s screen persona and his career trajectory are an amalgam of guys like Steve McQueen, George Maharis, Vince Edwards, Edd Byrnes, Ty Hardin and more. And if you have forgotten who some of those actors are, that’s essentially Tarantino’s point.

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Launches With $5.8 Million on Thursday Night
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” has opened with a solid $5.8 million at 3,318 North American locations in Thursday previews.

Sony’s much-anticipated comedy drama, starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt, will expand to 3,659 sites against the second weekend of Disney’s blockbuster remake of “The Lion King.” “Once Upon a Time” is promising R-rated counter-programming and should deliver a $30 million opening weekend, according to forecasts.

DiCaprio and Pitt share the big-screen with Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Kurt Russell, Lena Dunham and the late Luke Perry. The movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, 25 years after Tarantino’s signature “Pulp Fiction” debuted at the same site.

Reviews have been strong with a current 88% score on Rotten Tomatoes. DiCaprio portrays an aging actor with Pitt as his longtime stunt double in a drama set in 1969 Hollywood with Sharon Tate (Robbie) moving in next door prior to the Manson family murders.

Does ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Does ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?
Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” is Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, and while his movies have always in one way or another been something of an ode to cinema and to the lesser-known films and stars of Hollywood, this movie is especially so.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Rick Dalton plays a fading TV cowboy who wasn’t able to pull off the transition to becoming a movie star like Steve McQueen. Tarantino said that both Dalton and the fake movies in which he stars are actually an amalgam of many actors who went through similar trajectories: guys like George Maharis, Ty Hardin, Edd Byrnes or Vince Edwards. If you forgot about some or all of those actors (or never heard of them), that’s kind of the point Tarantino is making.

And throughout “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood,” Tarantino has fun with that premise by staging clips and

Quentin Tarantino’s Films Ranked, From Least to Most Tarantino
(Spoiler alert: While this doesn’t spoil any plot points about “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” it does offer an interpretation that might skew how you watch the film, or not. Plot details of other Tarantino movies have been kept to a minimum.)

To try to better understand “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” and where it fits in the Quentin Tarantino film canon, I sat down and ranked his films in order from least to most Tarantino. What do I mean by “most Tarantino”? That’s exactly the question I wanted to answer. I think the answer is, “a film that no one but Tarantino could make.”

What’s funny about Tarantino films isn’t just what we’re seeing on screen, but the audacity of putting it there. Did that character we love really just get killed? Like that? Is Tarantino really spending this much time on

'Lion King' Ready to Repeat as Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Debuts

'Lion King' Ready to Repeat as Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Debuts
Last weekend turned up the heat on the 2019 summer box office, which, despite some disappointing performances, currently stands as the fourth highest grossing summer movie season of all-time at the domestic box office and this weekend looks to keep the ball rolling. Disney's The Lion King is ready to repeat atop the weekend box office following last weekend's record debut, while Sony's release of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood looks to deliver some R-rated counter-programming for those interested in a little something that falls a bit outside the summer blockbuster corridor. The Lion King delivered a monster debut last weekend and has already topped $260 million domestically after six days in release. A look at the second weekend for 2017's Beauty and the Beast shows that film dipping just -48% in its second weekend after a $174.7 million debut. The Lion King not only outperformed Beauty over its opening weekend,

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Will Beat Box-Office Estimates, But Not ‘Pulp Fiction’

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Will Beat Box-Office Estimates, But Not ‘Pulp Fiction’
With its $192 million opening weekend, “The Lion King” grossed more than Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” will earn in its entire domestic run. However, hopes are high that his R-rated film can break another kind of record: Will it make enough to justify studios that take the chance on original tentpoles?

Based on estimates, it should gross over $100 million, but with a $30 million-$35 million opening weekend that will fall short of his personal best. Best case, that suggests a $122 million domestic total. Still, those are projections. The film has buzz, mystery, and other key elements that could give it the momentum to soar above expectations.

Pulp Fiction” Remains His Biggest Hit

Like “Once Upon a Time,” “Pulp Fiction” premiered at Cannes and opened wide (by 1994 standards) in 1,338 theaters to $20 million. It then had a phenomenal run with great word of mouth and awards expectations that led

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Actress Julia Butters on Working With Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt
Julia Butters was just 4 when she made her acting debut on an episode of “Criminal Minds.” Six years later, the 10-year-old star of ABC’s “American Housewife” makes the leap to the big screen in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.” And what a leap it is. Julia appears in the film in just one scene as a child actor working on a Western with Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, the fading Hollywood star Rick Dalton. She steals the scene as she proceeds to give Rick an impromptu acting class to help him work though his insecurities. Julia says she didn’t know who DiCaprio was before landing the role. “I thought he was a musician,” she jokes. However, the name of DiCaprio’s co-star Brad Pitt did ring a bell.

The World — and ‘Hollywood’ — According to Quentin Tarantino

The World — and ‘Hollywood’ — According to Quentin Tarantino
It starts with the title — and let’s face it, Quentin Tarantino has always had a knack for great movie titles. How a joke about a Louis Malle movie gave birth to the cryptic phrase Reservoir Dogs is as much a part of his origin story as working at a video store. The man singlehandedly reintroduced the word pulp back into the pop vernacular. Inglourious Basterds wasn’t an original handle, but thematically, it was a beautifully borrowed, misspelled “bingo!” for his World War II story. You did not need

First Zombieland: Double Tap Trailer Reportedly Coming This Weekend

The wheels are really starting to go round and round for Zombieland: Double Tap.

Not only did we get an official poster for the highly-anticipated sequel last week, but now it seems we can expect its first trailer sometime this weekend.

According to a movie theater employee who reached out to Wgtc, Sony, who’s preparing for a lucrative box office run with the release of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood, is expected to drop the trailer alongside the new Leonardo DiCaprio film. It could show up as early as the Thursday night pre-screenings, but it’ll definitely hit the web by Monday, if not before. Granted, Sony hasn’t made an official announcement just yet, but this certainly sounds likely.

After all, given that Double Tap‘s slated for an October release, it was really only a matter of time before we got our first
