In just one week, Quentin Tarantino‘s new Western The Hateful Eight will roll out around the country with special 70mm screenings at select locations that will feature a longer cut of the film, complete with an intermission. In order to make this happen, The Weinstein Company had to put in the effort to get some theaters up to snuff with a 70mm projector.

While director Quentin Tarantino had The Weinstein Company overhaul a bunch of theaters to be able to play his newest western The Hateful Eight in glorious 70mm for maximum effect, if you want to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in that format, that’s going to be much harder.

We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. The buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble.
