The Hateful Eight Roadshow Featurette

"Here's what makes 70mm so glorious!" Still confused by the "roadshow" version of The Hateful Eight? The Weinstein Company has released a featurette explaining the story behind why Quentin Tarantino wanted to shoot this film in 65mm ultra-panavision and how they're planning to release it in 70mm in certain theaters around the country. The video features Tarantino plus Samuel L. Jackson, cinematographer Robert Richardson, and many others. They explain that this roadshow is basically a big, special occasion that features an overture, and an intermission, and a playbill and everything. This is awesome and I'm glad they finally released this video for The Hateful Eight, the 11th feature shot in ultra-panavision. Do not miss.

Featurette on the 70mm roadshow for Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

Watch the most recent trailer for The Hateful Eight here. More info on the official website here.

The Hateful Eight is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained). Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape carrying bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. But their journey is about to get disrupted by a blizzard, leaving them stranded at Minnie's Haberdashery with six other travelers (Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Demian Bichir), and they might not all make it out alive. The Weinstein Company will open The Hateful Eight in a limited 70mm roadshow release starting on December 25th, 2015, Christmas Day, later this year. We'll see ya'll in theaters then.

70mm film. This must have been such pain for Taratino. It really shows how much he loves cinematic art.

Film is the only way to go. The new Star Wars was filmed on film as well. You think anyone will remember that Hobbit 48fps garabge? Nope.

Anyone have any idea who/what/where/when/how to get tickets to the roadshow and what theaters it's gonna be in? Every news article is just showing repeating the same info from the video but it won't do us any good if we can't actually GO to the roadshow and see it!

I live in Pittsburgh and the closest showings that I found were Chicago, D.C., and somewhere in Connecticut. I think I'm going to the D.C. one.

How did you find those theaters?

Rob Cameron on Dec 1, 2015


I found this list and then I used the interactive map. I am willing to skip Christmas for this but I will be contacting the theater to confirm the showing first. http://www.in70mm.com/news/2016/hateful_8/index.htm

I need to go see this.

Franklin Carpio on Dec 1, 2015


While I'm not the biggest Tarantino fan, I would absolutely love to see this on the big screen. I'm sure it's going to look fantastic on the "big screen" at home too. You have to hand it to him. He's doing what he can to keep the art of film alive. Good for him.
