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.

News regarding the “Django Unchained” character dolls just won’t go away, though you can bet The Weinstein Company most definitely wants it to. After they announced earlier this week that they would discontinue the "Django Unchained" figurines after numerous protests, eBay has now announced they have banned the toys from their site as well.

Now, before we dive into this little update from Quentin Tarantino on what he might direct next, let's just remember that over the course of the press tour for "Django Unchained," he's had a lot of ideas. He's already teased that 'Django' and "Inglorious Basterds" could be part of a loose trilogy, he's talked about a possible 'Basterds' spinoff entitled "Killer Crow," a desire to shoot a movie in Australia, or maybe make another slavery/western film or gangster picture. You get the idea. But continuing to promote "Django Unchained" as it opens overseas, Tarantino has added a new possible next movie to his list, and one that could find him drawing things down a bit.

Toy company NECA has been no stranger to darker or violent attributes when it comes to their lines of film-related figurines, having drawn content from “Sin City,” “The Evil Dead” and, most extensively, the filmography of Quentin Tarantino. With the director's highest grossing film, “Django Unchained,” it looked like stellar business was in store for the toy company, but now NECA -- and The Weinstein Company -- have been served with the type of controversy wafting off the spaghetti western itself.

With the focus this weekend on Park City with the Sundance Film Festival now in full swing, it might be easy to forget we're still in the midst of the awards season. And even though we're nearing the finishing line, with the Golden Globes already handed out, and a few more major guild awards and the Indie Spirits to come before the Oscars are awarded, critics circles are still getting their two cents in. And the latest to hand down their verdict on the year in film of 2012 are from the U.K., with the London Critics' Circle Awards honoring their winners today. And a big favorite of the season made a considerable impression.

You might remember that just before the film opened nationwide, the always opinionated Spike Lee weighed in on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." "...it's disrespectful to my ancestors, to see that film," he said in an interview, while he also hit Twitter to proclaim, "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them." Since then, there hasn't been much reaction from camp 'Django,' but now Jamie Foxx has broken the silence.

Earlier: The oft-repeated maxim is that the Golden Globes do not matter. They do not. However, if you take the polar opposites of the season of critic awards (high-brow, cerebral) and the Globes (extremely populist), you can often (when also considering more significant Guild awards, of course) split the difference and land where the Academy Awards ultimately will.

While Annapurna Pictures backed a number of ambitious films this year including John Hillcoat's bootleggin' “Lawless,” Paul Thomas Anderson's challenging “The Master” and Andrew Dominik's bitter “Killing Them Softly,” the financial rewards were far less than expected. But Megan Ellison's production company has kicked off 2013 strong with Kathryn Bigelow's “Zero Dark Thirty” grossing a solid $24 million in its first weekend of wide release after selling out independent theaters in the last two weeks. After scoring five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Sony timed this expansion perfectly, and the film laid the smackdown on a couple of strong competitors.

“Django Unchained” still hasn’t opened in the UK; in fact it’s one of four of this year’s Best Picture nominees that have yet to do so. It will, however, hit British cinemas in just eight days time, and Quentin Tarantino is over there at the moment to promote his new film which tonight has it’s London premiere. While doing said promoting, QT has so far come across as someone supremely confident in his own ability as a filmmaker, and unashamedly proud of the latest product he’s got to offer. In fact, it had all been going rather swimmingly, until he was interviewed by Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

So here we are. The moment that basically every film fan (even if some are openly hostile to the idea) sees as their Superbowl; the announcement of the Academy Award nominations, for the 85th time, in this case. Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone took to the stage at 5.30 PST to deliver the news, after months of the usual feverish speculation. So how did things turn out?
