Should I watch the Robert Rodriguez trilogy in order?
I did not watch these movies in order, I actually saw Once upon a time first, and I loved it. Then I watched Desperado and then El Mariatchi last. They do not go in order at all. They are basically the same movies, just with different things going on. Especially since Desperado is a remake of El Mariatchi. I think each one is a good movie on it's own, not necessarily a trilogy.
Has anyone heard anything big on the apparent Predators film being directed by Robert Rodriguez?
Predators - Summer 2010
The following from empireonline.com:
Lawrence Fishburn to star alongside the likes of Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Danny Trejo, Alice Braga and The Shield's Walton Goggins.
We love the little plot description at the end of the story: "They play a disparate group of people who land on the Predator home planet only to discover 'unspeakable horrors." Empires story in their October 2009 issue had the fact that the plot would center around a group of people who wake up in a zoo on the Predators homeworld.
Check out Empire for all stuff cutting edge movie -wise. They are out of England, so some stuff does not get over in America for a while, but their information is solid.
On on the Alien homefront, the next Alien movie will be a Prequel to the original Alien movie. It will reportedly center around Ripley's Dad and a young Ripley, but it is not fleshed out yet. It is due out in 2011.
Hope it helps!
How Can I Contact Director And Film Maker Robert Rodriguez?
Through his agent. There are books available at Samuel French in Hollywood. There used to be a book called "The Address Book" that had all the major players and talent's phone numbers (their agents', of course) in there.
What was Quentin Tarantino's advice to Robert Rodriguez?
He told Robert to change the name to his film to: "Once Upon A Time in Mexico"
If you buy or rent the movie dvd, Robert tells you the information on directors remarks, if you
option the dvd to play "hear the director's comments."
