THE HATEFUL EIGHT

The Weinstein Company is giving cinephiles a chance to start 2016 off right. The Hateful Eight is now set to roll into theaters January 1, a week earlier than its previously announced January 8 wide release date.

Of course, that still means much of the country has three weeks until they can see Quentin Tarantino‘s latest. So while we wait, here’s an interesting bit of trivia to consider: Did you know that The Hateful Eight originally started out as a Django Unchained sequel? Find out why Tarantino ultimately decided not to make it one after the jump.  Read More »

The Hateful Eight Clips

Even though plenty of people are anxious to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 12 days, let’s not forget that one week later we’ll get to see another of the highly anticipated films of 2015. Quentin Tarantino has his eighth film getting a unique release beginning on December 25th with The Hateful Eight getting a 70mm roadshow release (with specific location details yet to be officially revealed) that includes extra footage and an intermission.

But if you’re a little impatient, you can watch eight minutes of The Hateful Eight clips right now to hold you over until Chtistmas gets here. It certainly won’t look as good as it will on a 70mm projection, but it’s the best we can do. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino in Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino is kind of notorious for talking up projects that never actually get made. Kill Bill Vol. 3 might be the most famous example, but there’s also the Vega Brothers spinoff, Killer Crow, a 1930s gangster flick… the list goes on.

So you may want to take it with a grain of salt when we tell you he’s been going on again about Forty Lashes Less One, an adaptation of the novel by Elmore Leonard. The new twist, however, is that he’s not necessarily eyeing it as a movie — he thinks he might turn it into a TV series instead. Get the latest on the Quentin Tarantino Forty Lashes Less One project after the jump.  Read More »

Jamie Foxx in Django Unchained

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Will Smith in a great movie. You could argue we’ve never seen the actor in a great movie, but he did have the opportunity to be a part of one a few years ago. Smith passed on starring in Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained. He missed out on a strong role, a role he didn’t feel was substantial enough. Smith, who’s on the Oscar hunt for Concussion, now claims he turned the part down for a different reason.

Learn why we didn’t see Will Smith in Django Unchained after the jump.

the hateful eight ultra panavision

Much has been written about the the upcoming theatrical roll-out of The Hateful Eight. Before it opens in every multiplex in the world, Quentin Tarantino‘s western thriller will have a “roadshow” release, hitting select theaters around the country to screen in 70mm projection. This roadshow version, in addition to being Tarantino’s recommended way of seeing the film, will also have additional footage, including a musical overture and intermission.

In other words, it’s an old school way to screen a brand new movie.

Of course, some audiences may not be aware of what’s special about this kind of presentation, or why it’s such a big deal that The Hateful Eight was shot on 65mm film using Ultra Panavision lenses. That’s why this featurette exists. Even seasoned film buffs will get a kick out of watching Tarantino and his crew lose their minds over this glorious tech.

NYPD Quentin Tarantino Boycott

Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful Eight) has been accused of glamorizing violence all throughout his career. Time and time again his depiction of violence is misread, almost with every one of his films. Apparently, in this respect, even the NYPD has a problem with the director’s work.
