This winter will be cold and Quentin Tarantino plans for the snow to be soaked in blood, as the end of the year will bring his 8th film to theaters and that film is “The Hateful Eight” Anyone that has followed Tarantino’s career will not be surprised by the great cast that has been assembled and the amazing story that will unfold on the screen.
“The Hateful Eight” follows a group of bounty hunters and a prisoner, as they seek shelter from a horrible blizzard and quickly realize that their problems are not all weather related. The level of talent in this movie cannot be measured; the acting talents include Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, and Bruce Dern.
“The Hateful Eight” will have a wide release on January 8, 2016, but Quentin does have a special Christmas present for the hardcore cinema fans. In select theaters, “The Hateful Eight” will be presented in Ultra Panavision 70 on Christmas Day.
There might be a few of you that may be confused on the concept of Ultra Panavision 70 or 70mm film presentation. 70mm film is an old school Hollywood concept of present films, as the “Ultra Panavision” method was used in the 1959 classic “Ben Hur” and allows for a wider aspect ratio, while preserving the quality. As Tarantino is a loyal to the classic film presentation, these special screenings of “The Hateful Eight” will be an event to behold.
