The latest issue of Vanity Fair is about to hit stands, and inside the pages of the magazine is a presumably long and exhaustingly good oral history of Quentin Tarantino's seminal '90s work, "Pulp Fiction." Online, Vanity Fair has published what one assumes is a truncated version of said oral history, but man, it's still damn good.

What was the deal with Zoe Bell’s character in “Django Unchained.” The “Death Proof” actress had a small non-speaking role in Quentin Tarantino’s latest as a bandit whose face was mostly covered by a mask. The way the camera lingers on her during a couple of key scenes suggests that there was originally going to be more to the character, and many wondered whether she’d had scenes cut that we’d be able to look forward to seeing on a future home video release. Sadly, it sounds like that won’t be the case.

You know how it was no fun to watch those “Star Wars” prequels; it sounds like they were no fun to make either. Well, that’s according to two of the actors who played minor roles in “Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace,” anyway. British comedian, actor and presenter Peter Serafinowicz provided the voice of Darth Maul in Lucas’ first prequel, while Terence Stamp took on the cameo role of Chancellor Valorum, and it sounds like they both had similarly disappointing experiences.

With Neill Blomkamp's equally ambitious and mysterious "Elysium" pushed from a March release to the end of the summer, we've had to make do with what little those around the movie are letting us know. We've already recieved a handful of Matt Damon images, and a look at Sharlto Copley as the villain and now comes some fresh images of Jodie Foster in the movie.

Did you know that Zac Efron has a production company? He does and it's called Ninjas Runnin' Wild Productions. Seriously. And that's runnin' not running, dawg. And over the past few years he's accumulated a small slate of projects that are moving through development incuding a remake of Daniel Espinosa's breakout film "Snabba Cash." And now, he's dipping his toes into the supernatural thriller sphere.

With news of a big screen "Entourage" movie and that "Annie" remake, it might be easy to get cynical and disheartened about Hollywood. But as a recent movie has taught us, there's always a shot at a silver lining, and today it comes in the form of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. The pair have already signed up to star in the Dennis Lehane adaptation "Animal Rescue," and at the time they were also considering the Cold War era flick "Child 44." Well it looks like the allure of working together and the material were too good to resist, because what the hell, they're going to do that movie too.

As we learned from the whole Lance Armstrong/J.J. Abrams/Bradley Cooper affair, even direct quotes can be dodgy these days, but this one comes from Cooper himself -- spoken in French no less while doing promo in France -- so we presume no wires have been crossed. And it looks like the actor's teaming up with Derek Cianfrance could get some international flavor.

The Oscars aren't the only major awards ceremony in February that will attract movie stars and airheaded red carpet commentators in equal measure. Across the pond, the BAFTAs will hand out their trophies a couple weeks earlier, and attendees will get something nice too, just for showing up.
