Hateful Eight Comic Con panel

While we can’t always see footage shown at Comic Con (official releases akin to the Suicide Squad drop are still not guaranteed) but more and more often we’re able to at least show off videos of big panels minus any footage debuts. Here is the full panel for the new Quentin Tarantino film, The Hateful Eight, which will hit theaters this coming Christmas.

And while other panels were about character descriptions, easter eggs and costumes, this one was for the hardcore film crowd — it was about lenses and projection, and even got into Tarantino’s irritation with the script leak that nearly canceled this film. And it was probably the only Comic Con panel with a mention of Luchino Visconti. Watch the full Hateful Eight Comic Con panel below. Read More »

The Hateful Eight score

Quentin Tarantino doesn’t commission original scores for his films. Instead, the writer/director collects a huge amount of music from other films and popular music to assemble idiosyncratic soundtracks that have become as integral to the identity of his films as are the scripts and casts.

Tarantino has drawn heavily on the music of Ennio Morricone for many years, using tracks from prior Morricone scores in Kill Bill, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Now, for The Hateful Eight, Morricone will compose the first full original score for a Tarantino film, which will also be the composer’s first western score in 40 years. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino is bringing his new film The Hateful Eight to Comic Con, which will mark the first time non-industry types have been able to see the movie in motion. Before we see that footage debut, however, a Comic Con preview offers up a great new still from the film, featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Kurt Russell’s amazing facial hair, which should probably get its own SAG card.

Check out the new Hateful Eight image below, and read a few comments from writer/director Tarantino. Read More »

Hateful Eight release date

The film will open in limited, 70mm release on December 25 before a wide, digital release on January 8. Read more about the Hateful Eight release date below. Read More »

Hateful Eight 70mm

Quentin Tarantino is a standard-bearer for the preservation of film in filmmaking, from the use of celluloid rather than digital when shooting a movie to the projection of film prints at his “no digital allowed” New Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles. Tarantino shot his latest film, The Hateful Eight, in the elite 70mm format — in fact, he used an even more rare variant of the 70mm format, called Ultra Panavision 70, which results in a very wide image.

Having gone to all that effort to shoot the film in a rare format, Tarantino evidently wants to exhibit the film in the same large format. A new report says that he has helped put 70mm projectors equipped with the proper anamorphic gear into fifty theaters worldwide. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino‘s new film The Hateful Eight sounds in many ways like a return to his roots: it’s nearly a closed-room argument, with an ensemble cast battling out their differences in, if Tarantino’s reputation is anything to go by, increasingly violent ways. That ensemble cast is perhaps better than ever, with Tim Roth providing a link to Tarantino’s debut Reservoir Dogs, and Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael MadsenBruce Dern, with a small turn from Channing Tatum.

And then there’s Kurt Russell, who looks more awesome than ever in this role — and that’s saying a lot, considering his history. See him and just about everyone else in new Hateful Eight images below. Read More »
