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.

The Hateful Eight

Throughout the fall of film and the rise of digital, Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) has firmly stuck with film. Tarantino has discussed his plans to retire at 60, but he’s even gone as far to say, if theaters can’t show 35mm anymore, he “won’t even make it to 60.” Tarantino shot his upcoming film, The Hateful Eight, on 70mm. To make sure people experience the film in all its beauty, not only will there be roadshow screenings of the western, there will also be two different versions of The Hateful Eight.

We’re well past the midpoint of the year, and we’ve already delivered our list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far.

Quentin Tarantino interview highlights

Quentin Tarantino gave a wide-ranging interview that ran over the weekend, and the outspoken filmmaker had plenty to say about the state of the industry, in addition to speaking about his upcoming film The Hateful Eight.

The most interesting comments in Tarantino’s talk are about that new movie, as he says that it chiefly concerns racial conflict, and as such is very relevant to the strife we’ve seen as cities like Ferguson and Baltimore react to killings of young black men and women by police.

We’ve highlighted eight of the most interesting things Tarantino had to say about his new film, his career, and the state of the industry overall, and you can read those below. Read More »

Hateful Eight trailer

Here’s the first real trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth film, The Hateful Eight, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern as a collection of dangerous, unsavory, and possibly untrustworthy characters all holed up in a haberdashery to ride out a blizzard.

When all those people are stuck in a room together, things get tense, threats are made, and some bullets are almost certainly going to fly. And because this is a Tarantino film, you know some colorful dialogue will fill the air as well. With this cast, we can’t wait to hear it. And in case you had any doubt that Robert Richardson‘s 70mm cinematography would be incredible, this footage will set things straight, and quick.

This trailer is great; check it out below. Read More »

Hateful Eight poster

We’ve got months to go before Christmas, and I’m in no hurry to see that time evaporate, but the promise of a new Quentin Tarantino film does make the end of the year seem pretty attractive. Now here’s a new The Hateful Eight poster to tease the tense battle of wills Tarantino has created to send off 2015 in style.

You probably know the film’s cast by now — Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Channing Tatum, and Zoe Bell — and that Tarantino and cinematographer Robert Richardson shot the movie in 70mm.

This poster shows John Ruth and Daisy Domergue, the shackled-together characters played by Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh. As the layout suggests, this is just be the first of a set of images presenting the full collection of eight hateful characters.

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 »
