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.

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!
