Check out the teaser (above) for Robert Rodriguez's upcoming short film about Kobe Bryant.
According to Nike, the short will premiere during NBA's All-Star weekend in February.
For those of you curious about the origin of the name "Black Mamba," it's a nickname that Kobe gave himself after seeing the Kill Bill films.
And yes, Robert Rodriguez was heavily involved in Kill Bill Vol. 2, as the film's score composer.

disappointing very common.
Daryl Hannah, who has been in movies such as Blade Runner, Wall Street, and Kill Bill, showed up looking a little stiff-faced to Prix Montblanc 2010 on Thursday (check out the pic on the right).
The actress's lips look like they have had some injections, and, quite frankly, she just looks puffy!
We hope this is just an optical illusion! Her face looked like it had barely aged over the years — she didn’t need plastic surgery!

If Samuel L. Jackson is half as much of a bad-ass at roasting as he is in his movies, then Quentin Tarantino is in a lot of trouble.
The Friars Club, who recently roasted David Hasselhoff, has announced that they will be roasting filmmaker Quentin Tarantino on October 1st. No mention yet about any kind of a telecast, but we would absolutely love to see this!
Here’s what Samuel L. had to say about the honor of roasting Quentin:
“I’m excited Quentin asked me to be the Roastmaster at his Friars Club Roast. Having known Quentin as long as I have now, there are many stories I’ve kept tucked away for a moment like this. I’m not so sure he won’t regret asking me once the afternoon is over!”
We’re curious to hear what kind of dirt Jackson’s got on Tarantino. We’ll also be curious to hear all the insulting things his other buddies might have to say.
Last time she worked with him, we saw Uma Thurman kill Bill. We’d like to see her kill Quentin this time…or at least his self-esteem.
Do U think Quentin Tarantino deserves to be roasted?

We're not inclined to believe this guy!
A man named Dannez Hunter is suing Quentin Tarantino for allegedly stealing his idea for Kill Bill.
Hannez claims that back in 1999 he submitted a treatment to Miramax about a character named Ren who witnesses her mother's murder, specifically the knife through her abdomen, etc.
He also claims that he applied for a job at Miramax but "was never given a return phone call, as numerous similar situated less qualified Jewish and White people were bestowed job after job after job."
He wants over a million dollars, saying he was denied royalties in the Kill Bill series.
Wasn't Kill Bill based on ideas from a Japanese film? Good luck with this lawsuit, pal!
