Foxtel Movies Celebrates Quentin Tarantino
Stream now on Foxtel, Foxtel Go and Foxtel Now

Academy Award winner, Quentin Tarantino’s latest release Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is in cinemas this month and to celebrate, Foxtel On Demand and Foxtel Masterpiece Movies is showcasing an assortment of Tarantino’s work streaming On Demand throughout August.

The “Quentin Tarantino Spotlight” On Demand collection features the acclaimed Director’s greatest hits all characteristic of Tarantino’s renowned, distinctive style and original film-making including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol 2, Inglourious Basterds, and From Dusk Till Dawn.

The ultra-violent, unusually-chatty heist movie Reservoir Dogs (1992, MA15+) stars Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth. Shot in 35 days for just US$1.2 million, the movie introduced the auteur’s trademark blend of comedy, savagery and whip-smart dialogue.

Pulp Fiction (1994, MA15+) is widely regarded as one of the most influential movies of the 1990s. Tarantino’s deliciously dark tale interweaves the story of hitmen Vincent and Jules (John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson, respectively) with that of gangster wife Mia (Uma Thurman), former boxer Butch (Bruce Willis) and nervous armed robbers Pumpkin (Tim Roth) and Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer).

Jackie Brown (1997, MA15+) is another of Tarantino’s masterpiece movies with real life, relatable and grounded characters, and compelling dialogue. Set in the 1970s, Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is an ageing air hostess who smuggles money for gun runner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson). The movie also stars Hollywood heavyweights Bridget Fonda, Michael Keaton, Robert de Niro and Chris Tucker.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003, MA15+) and Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004, MA15+) gave Tarantino an opportunity to show off his action directing chops. Both movies star Uma Thurman as a former assassin who – after awakening from a four-year coma – wreaks vengeance on the team of assassins (Lucy Liu and Daryl Hannah) who betrayed her, including their leader Bill (David Carradine).

Inglourious Basterds (2009, MA15+) is a World War II movie starring Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Laurent, Michael Fassbender and Eli Roth. It tells the fictional alternate history of the unwitting convergence of two independent plots to assassinate Hitler, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor, and the other by a team of Jewish-American soldiers.

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996, MA15+) written by Quentin Tarantino is also included in the Foxtel On Demand collection. The American supernatural crime-horror movie is directed by Robert Rodriguez, and stars George Clooney as Seth Gecko, and Quentin Tarantino as his psychotic murderous brother Richie Gecko, alongside Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Salma Hayek.

All these Movies are available to stream for Foxtel Movies subscribers with all titles On Demand via internet connected iQ3 and iQ4 boxes, on devices with Foxtel Go, and via Foxtel Now. The iQ4 is Foxtel’s most advanced streaming set top box, designed with smarter features to make finding and streaming your Foxtel favourites easier than ever, while also delivering Foxtel’s dedicated 4K channel to subscribers with a compatible 4K TV.

MR INBETWEEN Hit series returns for second killer season Starts Friday September 13


Media Release: Thursday August 15, 2019

MR INBETWEEN
Hit series returns for second killer season

Starts Friday September 13

Express from the US at 2pm and encored at 8pm Fridays
Special encore screening Sundays at 8.30pm AEST on FOX SHOWCASE
and stream On Demand

Mr Inbetween, the critically acclaimed Australian half hour comedy series created by and starring Scott Ryan as the criminal-for-hire “Ray Shoesmith” returns for its second season. Mr Inbetween premieres Friday, September 13, Express from the US at 2pm and encored at 8pm with a special primetime encore screening Sundays at 8.30pm on FOX SHOWCASE, the home of FX Originals and available to stream On Demand.

Ryan reprises the role as charismatic, yet volatile hit man “Ray Shoesmith”, a role which earned him a TV WEEK Logie Award for ‘Most Outstanding Actor’, and he again serves as the series writer, with Nash Edgerton directing the series.

“The response to season one was super positive both here and in the US, with everyone wanting more. We are very excited to share more episodes, allowing us to explore Ray’s character further and delve deeper into Ray’s adventures in crime, dating and parenting,” Edgerton said.

Juggling a relationship, parental responsibilities, friendships and a sick brother while earning a living would be difficult for anyone, but it’s particularly difficult when you’re a criminal for hire.

Ray Shoesmith “takes care of people” — collecting debts, relieving them of drugs and guns, and often taking care of them on a more permanent basis. Ray demands respect and does not tolerate it when someone disregards his very clear code of ethics. In season two of Mr Inbetween, Ray’s work and personal life begin to collide and he finds himself struggling to keep both sides of his life from imploding.

The ten-part season stars Ryan along with Brooke Satchwell as girlfriend Ally, Justin Rosniak as best friend Gary, Chika Yasumura as daughter Brittany, Nicholas Cassim as brother Bruce, Damon Herriman as boss Freddy, David Michôd as Peter the anger management counsellor and Matt Nable as Dave.

New cast includes Ben Oxenbould as Dirk, Josh McConville as Alex, Rebecca Montalti as Mandy and Rose Riley as Michele.

Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said: “The first season of Mr Inbetween was a hit with viewers and a critical success and we can’t wait to see what the brilliant creative team have in store for the new season. We are proud to bring these unique stories to Australian audiences and Mr Inbetween joins a huge line-up of Australian drama on Foxtel including Wentworth, Secret City, Lambs of God and two upcoming series Upright and The End.

“At Foxtel our continued strategy is to find and commission local stories that are designed for our dedicated Australian viewers. International success, such as what Mr Inbetween has achieved is a welcome bonus”.

The series was recently shot in Sydney and is produced by FX in association with Blue-Tongue Films, Jungle Entertainment and Pariah Productions. Edgerton, Ryan and Jason Burrows are Executive Producers and Michele Bennett is producer.

Mr Inbetween screens Express from the US, Fridays at 2pm and encored at 8pm from September 13 with special primetime encore screenings Sundays at 8.30pm on FOX SHOWCASE and every episode is available to stream On Demand.
