    Interview: Christoph Waltz Talks 'Django Unchained'

    Christoph Waltz can be an intimidating presence, both on screen and off. Best known for his unforgettable, steely-eyed Oscar-winning performance as Col. Hans Landa in “Inglourious Basterds,” in person, Waltz conveys the same intensity and sharp focus. Sporting a thick salt and pepper beard and offering a firm handshake, The Playlist spoke to Waltz this week as he spoke with press for Roman Polanski’s “Carnage,” which opens December 16th. As you already know, Waltz will soon head to New Orleans for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” in which he will play a German bounty hunter named Dr. ...

    Despite the (somewhat unfair) criticisms lobbed at "The Help," its director Tate Taylor has walked away smiling. Disney's movie powered its way to over $175 million worldwide and lest you think that number was padded out by foreign tickets, guess again -- 90% of that figure is domestic...

    First Reviews Of Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar' Are Lukewarm

    This week has finally seen some of the awards season's last big question marks unspool, with early (although vaguely unofficial) screenings of "War Horse" and "Young Adult" taking place (the latter has been conducting a series of pop-up showings around the country).
