While the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western “The Hateful Eight” is typically star-studded — Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern and Tim Roth are just a few names in the ensemble cast — it’s ultimately the director’s ambitious plan to release the movie on film that has Indiewire most excited. One of the biggest proponents of film over digital, Tarantino is taking “The Hateful Eight” on a road tour, screening the movie on 70mm film at select theaters starting Christmas Day before releasing the film on digital screens nationwide on January 8.

The new poster for the western makes clear the exhibition is just as important as anything related to character or plot, as the Ultra Panavision symbol can be seen in the bottom right corner alongside stars Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Check out the poster below, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
