First Poster For Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ Promises Roadshow Release In 2015

First Poster For Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Promises Roadshow Release In 2015

“Yeah – We’re going to be doing ‘The Hateful Eight.’ ” is all Quentin Tarantino would say about his developing western when asked about the status of the movie at Comic-Con last weekend. But could plans be much further along that he’s letting on? Well, it would certainly appear that way as before a frame has even been shot, the first poster/promo for the movie has arrived, and no it’s not a fan made deal either.

Via the eagle eyes at Film Divider, next week’s issue of Empire magazine will feature a full page one sheet (see below) for the movie, with a “Special Roadshow Engagement” for the movie promised for 2015, in CinemaScope too. Damn. But is this even possible? It certainly is. Kurt Russell — one of the actors who joined Tarantino for a live read of the script earlier this year (read our review) — revealed recently that an early 2015 shoot was being eyed, so a release late in the year is very feasible. And given that most of the action in this one is in a couple of contained locations, the production will likely be a bit faster than “Django Unchained.” And it also looks like his plans to shoot in 70mm still seems to be intact.

Between this and a possible release of “Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair,” 2015 is looking like a banner year for Tarantino fans. Check out the poster below.

That poster looks like a leftover from the marketing materials for Django Unchained. Hardly anything to get all that excited about, except for the mentioning of CinemaScope.

Can someone please inform Empire that the poster is actually wrong? The 8th film from Quentin Tarantino? Huh? Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. In my book, that's 9 films. Which means that The Hateful Eight is the NINTH film from Quentin Tarantino. He always referred to Kill Bill as two separate films and when Inglorious Basterds was released back in 2009, it was considered "The Seventh film from Quentin Tarantino".

Like the script. Like the poster. Love the Muppet juxtaposition.


He plans to shoot in 65mm. 70mm is a presentation format.

This is a great news. I'm looking to it. Let's hope Quent is back in a good shape with a good story, and marvellous directing. Also, the cast seems to be promising, all making it a bombshell production that will blow our minds, as usual.
