In a move that should please Quentin Tarantino fans across the country, The Weinstein Company has moved up the nationwide release of “The Hateful Eight” from its previously announced January 8 date to New Year’s Day. The movie will open wide on January 1 with its 35mm digital print version. The movie will still open on Christmas Day at select theaters capable of playing the movie on 70mm film.
Tarantino’s latest follows a bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) traveling with a prisoner (a roughed up Jennifer Jason Leigh) to Wyoming. While taking shelter from a blizzard at a trading post lodge, they encounter a group of men who can’t be trusted and who all might want their hands on the bounty. Samuel Jackson, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins and Demian Bichir round out the star-studded cast.
