The 70mm roadshow presentation of The Hateful Eight has been in theaters for a couple weeks now, and Quentin Tarantino’s newest film went into wide release back on New Year's Day. However, the Weinstein Company has no intention of letting up with their push of publicity for the distributors’ huge financial gamble, and in their constant preaching of the Hateful Eight gospel, they’ve released anothe
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 the master of the comeback.

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.

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.
Tis the season for great films (and holiday cheer, sure), and while we're all pumped for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there's another highly-anticipated film hitting theaters just a week later — well, 70mm-equipped theaters. The rest of you will have to wait a couple more weeks to see The Hateful Eight, but if you're feeling mighty anxious to lay eyes on Quentin Tarantino's latest, we have several new clips from the film, offering eight (in)glorious minutes of footage.
Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is one of the year’s most hotly anticipated remaining releases, just as any new feature from the less-than-prolific auteur must be. The recent unveiling of a new trailer has Tarantino fans more feverishly excited than ever, but one of the most tantalizing aspects of the film can’t be conveyed through a mere teaser...
Yes, yes, there’s a new Star Wars movie next month — but there’s also a new Quentin Tarantino film! The marketing for The Hateful Eight (thankfully) hasn’t been as prolific as Disney’s push for The Force Awakens, but today brings the first TV spot and a new poster to get you in a very particular sort of holiday spirit.
