Following the first Hateful Eight photos that debuted back in May, Entertainment Weekly has released a new photo from director Quentin Tarantino's Western, which is set for release on Christmas Day.

"I can definitely say that as bleak as our movie is, we are definitely the funniest snow Western ever made. This is funnier than The Great Silence, it's funnier than Day of the Outlaw. Oh, yeah, funnier than McCabe & Mrs. Miller."

The Hateful Eight Image Finds Kurt Russell Taking Aim

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino is bringing The Hateful Eight to Comic-Con next week, but until the Western’s anticipated panel takes place, here’s another image from the star-studded pic, courtesy of EW.

Kurt Russell plays bounty hunter John Ruth, while Samuel L. Jackson is playing Major Marquis Warren. Both are definitely the kinds of guys you don’t want to end up stranded with – but that’s exactly what happens in the film, when a blizzard traps Ruth and Warren in a stagecoach stopover with an assortment of other rogues. Bloodshed ensues, but Tarantino assures the mag that there’s some humor on screen, too:

“I can definitely say that as bleak as our movie is, we are definitely the funniest snow Western ever made. This is funnier than The Great Silence, it’s funnier than Day of the Outlaw.”

The director also cites Bonanza and The Virginian as two influences on his latest movie, »

Quentin Tarantino's highly-anticipated Western drama The Hateful Eight is storming into cinemas with guns ablaze this holiday season.

The Weinstein Co is debuting The Hateful Eight with a special 70mm film print on Christmas Day 2015.

Viggo Mortensen: 'I wish Tarantino's Hateful Eight had worked out'

A wider digital release is planned to roll out in more cinemas beginning on January 8, 2016.

The Hateful Eight has been shrouded in secrecy since Tarantino confirmed its production would go ahead in spite of a script leak.

Set in post-Civil War Wyoming, the film follows eight travellers who are brought together during a massive blizzard.

The title characters will be played by Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Demián Bichir, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Samuel L Jackson, with Channing Tatum and Zoë Bell also appearing.

‘The Hateful Eight’ in 70mm Us December roadshow

12 June 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Weinstein Company (TWC) has unveiled its plans for the distribution of Quentin Tarantino’s next film.

The Hateful Eight will premiere in 70mm on December 25 in the Us as part of an exclusive two-week roadshow in select theatres.

The Civil War era ensemble about a group of dangerous characters holed up in a tavern during a blizzard will then go on nationwide release in today’s more conventional digital theatrical format on January 8 2016.

During this time it will continue to play in 70mm in what TWC brass claim will be the widest of its kind for the format in more than two decades.

TWC distributed Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master in 70mm in 2012. The company, along with Tarantino and a coterie of unnamed directors and studios, says it has negotiated deals with Kodak to continue production of 70mm and other film formats to honour the vision of those filmmakers who wish to use it.

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Gets 70mm and Digital Release Dates

12 June 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Easily my most anticipated film of 2015 is Quentin Tarantino's latest The Hateful Eight. I may or may not have read that leaked first draft of the script, and if I did, I would say it was pretty terrific. It also does not hurt that Tarantino pushed for 70mm both in production and distribution. And we have been twiddling our thumbs, waiting to know when exactly we'd get to see this film. Well, we can now go over to our calendars and circle a day. Like his 2012 western Django Unchained, we will see The Hateful Eight on Christmas Day, Dec. 25. That is if your local cinema projects 70mm film. Luckily, I am one of those people. If you do not have this kind of projection around you, you will have to wait until Jan. 8, 2016 for the nationwide digital release. That is a surprising length of time between the two releases. »

The Hateful Eight Arriving Christmas Day In 70Mm Only

12 June 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Weinstein Company has slotted Quentin Tarantino’s latest genre-romp The Hateful Eight for a Christmas Day opening, exclusively in the high-resolution 70mm format, before opening the movie in more standard “digital” resolutions nationwide on January 8.

Tarantino shot The Hateful Eight on 65mm film with plans from the get-go to deliver the largest-scale 70mm projection release in decades. Though 70mm projectors are rare nowadays, seeing as theaters skew more digital, the director will be traveling to 50 theaters to personally retrofit them to correctly project the pic.

The Christmas Day opening is in line with his strategy of personally delivering the projectors so as to reward the theaters willing to take a stab at the high-resolution format.

Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell and Bruce Dern all star in The Hateful Eight, which kicks off as a motley crew »
