Hall H tends to be the domain of super-heroes, zombies, Jedis, and their ilk. Super-powered, supernatural types. There’s not a lot time devoted to Westerns or cowboys (except when the cowboys meet super-powered, supernatural types in something like Cowboys & Aliens). Today’s panel for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight was a rare exception, with the modern master of genre mashups returning to Comic-Con to present his upcoming opus about a wagon full of bounty hunters trying to find shelter during a blizzard.

Quentin Tarantino and the cast of The Hateful Eight will be appearing at Comic-Con next week (I know, it’s so soon) to unveil new footage from the director’s upcoming western — hopefully the Weinstein Co. will find it in their hearts to release that footage online for those of us not attending, but until then, you are free to enjoy a new image from the film.

We knew that director Quentin Tarantino was filming The Hateful Eight on 65mm film cameras with every intention of creating 70mm film prints for select theaters. Then we learned that he was spearheading a campaign to retrofit 50 theaters across the nation with 70mm projectors so more audiences could see the movie in its intended format. Now the final piece of the puzzle has fallen into place. The Hateful Eight will open on Christmas Day, but only in theaters capable of projecting 70mm. Everyone else will have to wait an extra two weeks.

Quentin Tarantino is one of the biggest voices in preserving film — his New Beverly theater in Los Angeles doesn’t allow digital projection, proving how committed the director is to protecting and promoting film. In keeping with that spirit, Tarantino shoots all of his movies on film, including his upcoming western The Hateful Eight. And to help ensure audiences can see his new film properly, he’s reportedly retrofitting 50 theaters worldwide with 70mm projectors.

Viggo Mortensen and Quentino Tarantino are but two lonely ships passing in the night, like two souls who must love each other from afar because they’re always committed to someone or something else. Mortensen has revealed that not only did he turn down the chance to appear in The Hateful Eight, but he also once auditioned for Reservoir Dogs. Will these two crazy kids ever work it out?

It’s the movie they said would never be made. Specifically, writer/director Quentin Tarantino said that, after an early draft of the script for ‘The Hateful Eight’ leaked online. Eventually, though, Tarantino reversed himself and decided to mount the film anyway, with an amazing cast that includes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell (!), Tim Roth, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern (!!!), Channing Tatum (!!!!!), and Samuel L. Jackson (!!!!!!!).

Quentin Tarantino Wants to Retire After Making 10 Films, Talks 'Hateful Eight' Inspirations

There comes a time when every talented individual must hang up their proverbial hat and retire -- some, like Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen, seem like they'll be working until someone forces them into retirement. But Quentin Tarantino has a different plan in mind: he wants to retire after he makes 10 films. 'The Hateful Eight' will, appropriately enough, be his eighth feature, and whether he sticks to his guns or not (no pun intended -- okay, pun totally intended) remains to be seen. After all, visionaries like him don't just walk away from doing what they love that easily, do they?
