Quentin Tarantino’s tastes are…how should we say…a bit singular. In recent years, the director has declared under-seen indie Afternoon Delight, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and Toy Story 3 as number one on his top 10 lists in their respective years, and though he admits he doesn’t have time to see a lot of new releases, his preferences are often very interesting. This year, Tarantino has gone with a more conventional pick for his favorite film, and it’s one that many of you (and many critics associations) agree with.

How about some news regarding this month’s most highly-anticipated release that doesn’t have Star Wars in the title? Channing Tatum’s involvement with The Hateful Eight is one of the worst kept secrets, though Tatum, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Company have refused to reveal his actual role, inspiring plenty of speculation and nitpicking of the film’s trailers. We won’t spoil his part for you, but Tatum does have some delightful stories about his time working with Tarantino and the cast.

Quentin Tarantino is fond of connecting his films with one another via little details and character names, like Reservoir Dogs’ Vic Vega and Pulp Fiction’s Vincent Vega, or the Big Kahuna Burger chain and Red Apple cigarettes that appear in many of his films. If you’re curious about how the director’s wintry western is connected to the TCU (Tarantino Cinematic Universe), then The Hateful Eight’s Tim Roth has your answer.

Pretty much everyone is looking forward to seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens this holiday season, but J.J. Abrams’ upcoming movie has at least one person very upset: Quentin Tarantino. The director of The Hateful Eight went off on an expletive-laded rant against Disney, which he claims is using extortion to block screenings of his movie all in the name of keeping the next Star Wars movie in as many theaters as possible.

Quentin Tarantino is the master of the comeback. Throughout his career, he’s rediscovered and revitalized the careers of one faded star after another; John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, Pam Grier in Jackie Brown, David Carradine in Kill Bill. Tarantino’s latest, The Hateful Eight, is his boldest reclamation project yet, an attempt to rejuvenate not just a single actor’s fortunes, but an entire medium of storytelling.

Hmm, what could this be? The official Twitter account for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is promising a big announcement for tomorrow, December 14, and we have a sneaking suspicion (okay, it seems pretty obvious) that the full list of theaters playing the 70mm Roadshow version of the film will be announced. If you’re dying to see Tarantino’s latest the way it was meant to be seen, you better get ready to do a lot of browser-refreshing tomorrow morning.

The Hateful Eight is a holiday season blessing to us all — well, to some of us, anyway. Quentin Tarantino’s latest film is hitting 100 theater screens specially-equipped with 70mm projectors on Christmas Day, while the rest of the nation will have to wait for the January wide release. But you won’t have to wait as long as you previously assumed because The Weinstein Company has moved the wide released up a whole seven days.

‘The Hateful Eight’ Was Originally Written as a ‘Django Unchained’ Sequel

There are some similarities between The Hateful Eight and Django Unchained besides just being Quentin Tarantino movies. They’re both westerns set in the Civil War era with a black male lead. They both star Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins and Bruce Dern, among others. But in addition to those similarities, there was initially going to be one major connection: Django himself. Tarantino recently revealed that The Hateful Eight originally started as a Django Unchained sequel with Django taking the place of Samuel L. Jackson’s Major Marquis Warren.

Quentin Tarantino Wants to turn ‘The Hateful Eight’ Into a Stage Play

by Matt Singer December 10, 2015 @ 2:07 PM
Quentin Tarantino makes movies with lots of action and violence, but those moments are always the dessert after the meat and potatoes of his dialogue, which spills out of the characters’ mouths in long conversations and monologues. Tarantino’s films are talky, but the talk is so rich you don’t care (or flat-out love it), something that’s certainly true of The Hateful Eight, which opens this Christmas.
