Hey, kids! Did your parents allow you to go see Quentin Tarantino’s blood-soaked nihilist Western The Hateful Eight in an act of gross negligence? You’re going to need a good analyst later in life, but for now, you can relive the politically tangled fun again and again with an all-new line of detailed action figures from NECA. All of your favorite characters from this pitch-black amorality play are here to growl baroque profanities and quietly plot to murder one another, just like in the movie! Even if Mom and Dad won’t tell you what a “black man’s dingus” is, that won't stop you from having a blast with eight new eight-inch-tall figurines based off of the cast members.

Quentin Tarantino Reportedly ‘Serious’ About Bringing ‘The Hateful Eight’ to Broadway

So far, audiences haven’t flocked to Quentin Taratino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, as they have with his last two films. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained grossed over $120 million, but The Hateful Eight looks like it will be lucky to get to $50 million. This despite the 70mm roadshow version that encouraged audiences to see the film in theaters. A large part of the disappointing box-office take so far, is due in no small part to opening up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aka the Biggest Movie of All-Time, but Tarantino is not backing off his latest movie, instead doubling down and moving forward with plans to mount a stage production of his latest movie in London and New York.

It took Avatar two and half months to become the highest grossing movie of all time. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will surpass its domestic box office gross within the next day or two after less than three weeks in release. The big question now is when J.J. Abrams’ sequel will find its ceiling because as of right now, it’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Watch Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson Shoot the Bull for 40 Minutes

Along with Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson probably rank as the most popularly beloved American filmmakers currently working. They’re among a small faction of directors with enough public clout that their name alone can sell a film to audiences beyond cinephiles. Hugo was a delightful tale about plucky children and the wonder of silent cinema, but America pricked up its ears and took notice because it was also une film de Scorsese. When Quentin Tarantino prepares to unveil a new feature, as he did quite recently with his take-no-prisoners oater The Hateful Eight, it’s more than just a theatrical release, it’s an event. (And in this case, literally, with Tarantino commandeering America’s cineplexes for his quixotic 70mm Roadshow project.)

Jennifer Lawrence Was, Like, This Close to Being in ‘The Hateful Eight’

Jennifer Lawrence’s newest starring vehicle, the Joy Mangano sorta-biopic, sorta-a-bunch-of-other-movies-smashed-together Joy, went into wide release over this past weekend only to meet with a spate of middling reviews. Lawrence’s unquestioning and absolute allegiance to director David O. Russell would appear to suggest that audiences can look forward to lots more pictures in the vein of the not-quite-there Joy, the not-quite-there American Hustle, and the not-quite-there Silver Linings Playbook. But hop one parallel dimension over, and Lawrence is currently being showered with praise for one of her most memorable, risky roles in a film that’s generated quite a bit of awards buzz.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Star Wars’ Leads an Exceptional Holiday Weekend

At this point, we can officially start calling the box office for Star Wars: The Force Awakens astonishing. Last week’s record breaking opening was massively impressive, but the endurance showcased by the film’s second weekend is even more so. Not only is the film doing well, but word of mouth is strong enough to propel it to a sophomore weekend gross that most movies would kill to earn in their entire runs. However, the holiday weekend was kind to many movies, including most of the five new releases, making this one of the strongest top 10s we’ve seen in quite some time.

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.

How ‘The Hateful Eight’ Connects to ‘Inglourious Basterds’

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.
