As noted in the trailer for The Hateful Eight and as highly promoted by Quentin Tarantino himself, the director utilized Ultra Panavision 70 lenses along with 65mm film to create a widescreen effect that hasn’t been on the big screen in decades.

Not much is known about Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars anthology film Rogue One — it currently stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn is most likely playing the villain (although the actor maintains he’s still unsure if he’s in it).

Although Star Wars: The Force Awakens will take the Star Wars saga three decades into the future, the spin-off anthology films will still allow the series to play around in the past. The first anthology film, Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One, is just weeks away from officially going before cameras and it will tell a tale set in the time right before the events of the original 1977 film. Since this period marks the height of Darth Vader’s powers, it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that the Dark Lord of the Sith will pop up in the film. But it is! And what a pleasant surprise it is!
