Home Movies Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” Will Get Two Week 70MM Showing Starting Xmas Day

Great news: Quentin Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” will get a special release on Christmas Day. For two weeks the neo-Western will play on 70 MM screens across the country. It’s film, baby! Real film! After the two weeks, TWC will go wide digitally, which makes sense financially. But if you’re anywhere near a 70MM screen, get there.

Here’s a description of the most anticipated film of the holiday season:

 

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the towns new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnies, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnies while shes visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
