The Hateful Eight is Samuel L. Jacksons sixth Quentin Tarantino film, and we think he just may nab an Oscar for this one. But while Jackson played coy about the Oscar buzz surrounding his performance when HipHollywood sat down with him to discuss the film, he didn’t shy away from defending Tarantino’s use of the N-word in his films.

“I hear people criticize him and I always go you’re not paying attention to what’s going you’re just listening to the words,” said Jackson. “If you are going to characterize or criticize his dialogue then we need to go back to the dialogue in Straight Outta Compton and Chi-raq and where ever else we need to go. If you’re not going to censor that , you can’t censor this.”

In this twisted and bloody Tarantino western, Jackson plays Major Marquis Warren, a gun toting bounty hunter who hitches a ride with another bounty hunter, played by Kurt Russell, who is on his way to Red Rock with his prisoner Daisy, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Watch the video to hear what else Jackson, Russell, Leigh and Bruce Dern, had to say about working with Tarantino and making this epic western. The Hateful Eight which also stars Channing Tatum, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, opens in theaters December 25th in a special 70mm roadshow release, and nationwide on January 8th, 2016.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
