During the press circuit for "Django Unchained," Quentin Tarantino once again discussed his feeling that his latest film and "Inglourious Basterds" "bespeak a trilogy," one that would need a conclusion.
It was during an interview withe The Root that Tarantino first mentioned a possible candidate for a closing act, a "Basterds" spin-off he tentatively calls "Killer Crow."
As exciting as further adventures of the Basterds sound, we couldn't help but ask the Bear Jew himself, Eli Roth, what he's heard about "Killer Crow" during an interview for the upcoming film "The Last Exorcism: Part II."

Ever since her rise to stardom, we've come to expect fantastic candor from Jennifer Lawrence interviews. In other words, they're usually pretty great.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with the now two-time Academy Award nominee at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, Lawrence was in high spirits coming off of the big morning for "Silver Linings Playbook" and the recently wrapped "Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
Justin Lin's "Fast Five" really changed the tune of the discussion about the car racing series. Jokes about the title quickly change to incredulous talk about how much fun the damn thing was. Come on, it has Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
For the follow-up, Lin has enlisted some serious action talent to add even more explosiveness to "The Fast and the Furious 6."
MTV News caught up with Gina Carano, the newest addition to the series, at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards last night to see what is in store for the crew this time around.

We've come to know Ryan Gosling as a pretty soft-spoken leading man, cut from the same cloth as Brando before him, but there's something funny in the trailers for his latest film, "Gangster Squad." His character, Sgt. Jerry Wooters, seduces Emma Stone's Grace Faraday with an almost cartoonish falsetto. What gives?
MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with the cast to find out what the Gos was going for with his higher register.
It seem so long ago that it's hard to remember, but the careers of Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron pretty much owe everything to each other. Without the first two "Terminator" films, neither the director nor the star would likely have as much success as they've had.
And that's completely ignoring "True Lies."
So when is the next collaboration going to happen? With Schwarzenegger just amping up his comeback and Cameron settling into an all-"Avatar" vegetative state, will the two every meet again? MTV News' Josh Horowitz spoke with Schwarzenegger about his future with Cameron.

The savvy moviegoer is well aware of the fact that part of an actor's role in being in and making movies is promoting them. There are a variety of ways in which to do this, which most of the time involve interviews with the media, boring stuff like that. Suffice it to say that the promotional machine gets a little worn and monotonous at times, so for those of us lucky enough to take part in some of these events out-of-the-box promo things are worth mentioning, particularly when they involve riding around in a tank with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Yep, you read that correctly, instead of doing a press conference or roundtable interview, Schwarzenegger invited a select group of movie reporters to come ride in his tank, one that he owns and operates, to experience a taste of some of the action served up in his return to movies as a leading man in "The Last Stand."
Here are the highlights from the trip:
Like the majority of critics groups around the country, we think "Zero Dark Thirty" is one of the best films of 2012. And as the movie continues to rack up the accolades (four Golden Globe nominations, ten Best Picture nods from assorted film critics groups thus far), audiences will soon have more opportunities to weigh-in, thanks to its expanded release in the new year.
There are a lot of appealing aspects to Katherine Bigelow's thriller: the cultural relevance, taking a cinematic peek inside secret government operations, an A-list cast, reactions from ex-government officials and that excellent musical score backing all the action(?).
"Sopranos" creator David Chase is transporting movie-goers back to the swinging '60s with his coming-of-age tale "Not Fade Away."
The film charts the highs and lows of a fledgling rock band formed by a group of friends in suburban New Jersey, and in keeping with the period, Chase and musical supervisor Steve Van Zandt (also of "Sopranos" fame) ensured the soundtrack was chockablock with groovy tunes by the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and James Brown. But with so much material to choose from, how did Chase land upon "Not Fade Away" (penned by Buddy Holly and later covered by the Rolling Stones) as the title?
"It occurred to me that this is a movie about the music of youth, that established youth culture and that some of the practitioners and greats of that music are already gone," Chase said. "They've already faded away, and more are going to continue to do that. I wanted to get this down before all that happened, and that they may fade away but the music wouldn't."
In an October interview with Total Film magazine, Tom Cruise revealed that not only would he make as many "Mission: Impossible" films as audiences want to see, but that he was actually in the midst of working on concepts for the series' fifth installment.
"I love traveling around promoting different movies because I'm always looking at different places, and I always walk around to see the city," he said. "I look at architecture, subways... coming up with different sequences."
Not long after that interview ran, Deadline broke the news that frequent Cruise collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, who directs the action star in his latest project "Jack Reacher," was in talks to helm "M:I 5." So when we caught up with the auteur recently, we had to ask for confirmation on those reports.
It's been a banner week for Mark Wahlberg. Yesterday, we got a glimpse at the trailer for his upcoming actioner "Pain and Gain," co-starring Dwayne Johnson, in addition to a look at his 2013 opener "Broken City" by way of our exclusive set visit.
From all appearances, the draw of this thriller is in getting to watch Wahlberg go toe-to-toe with co-star Russell Crowe, an experience which the "Ted" star told us was as challenging as it was satisfying.
"It was intense, but it was intense in a great way," Wahlberg told MTV News of working with Crowe. "When he showed up we had already shot most of the movie except for his scenes, and he just showed up and we didn't have any time to really talk or anything. [Director] Allen [Hughes] asked us, 'Do you guys want to rehearse?' and we both said, 'No let's do it,' and we dove into the biggest scene in the movie. It's really two guys going at it, and it was great for us as actors because we weren't trying to outdo each other as actors, but the characters were, so you had that freedom to really push each others' buttons.
