Last week, /Film broke the news The Weinstein Company would be including a teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight with Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The filmmaker has yet to start shooting the film, so many were curious would the trailer would entail. Well, now we know.
The trailer has been seen and while the video isn’t online yet (and likely won’t be, at least officially) a detailed description is ours to share. There’s no footage, just a selection of character names and roles and some country music.

By all accounts, Quentin Tarantino hasn’t even started to shoot his new film The Hateful Eight. There’s already a poster, however, and now there’s reliable info that a teaser trailer is in the can. Even better, several reports say that the Hateful Eight trailer release is set for next week, attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Trouble is, that’s probably the only place you’ll be able to see it for a while.
Sure, trailer news and rumors are somewhat lame, but when it’s word on a trailer for a film that we thought might never be made? We’ll take it, especially after the movie script was leaked, leading to the film being cancelled, then revived for a live reading.

Film ain’t dead. It is having a hard time, but that combination of polyester and emulsion that records light with such a warm, natural “feel” still has its adherents. And those acolytes, including major movie industry players such as Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and J.J. Abrams, are doing their bit to maintain an active business relationship between studios and Kodak.
Now, dealmaking revelations show that studios, pushed in part by the filmmakers named above, have made a deal with Kodak to purchase a certain amount of film each year, allowing film stock production to continue. Read More »

And this being Tarantino, of course he doesn’t just have one project in the works. He also revealed that he’s mulling over a sci-fi project, though it’s in its early stages still. Hit the jump to get the dirt.

In 2011, the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA came up with the great, simple idea for an art show. Take the wildly varied films of two of the most eclectic and revered filmmakers out there, and mash them together. The result, Quentin vs Coen, opens yet again Saturday July 5.
Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Brothers are obviously successful, talented filmmakers. But what makes them so similar to each other is how different they continue to be. From film to film to film, audiences never know what they’re going to get when they sit down for a Tarantino or Coen Brothers film. A film noir masked as a stoner comedy, a murder mystery set in Minnesota, a series of stories told out of order, a near four hour samurai movie. The sky is the limit.
And that’s reflected in the art show, too. The huge scope of films made by these filmmakers, filled with iconic imagery and classic characters, is paradise for an artist looking to do something different. Below, we’ve got a small sampling of what’s in store for the show, as well as information on how you can attend and buy online. Read More »

During a Cannes event, the filmmaker revealed that he wants to turn the 2012 Western into a four-hour miniseries by adding back the extra material he’d cut for the theatrical release.
