Hateful Eight Poster 1

More bloody than The Avengers

Some new details have been released concerning Quentin Tarantino’s latest film – The Hateful Eight. Tarantino showed off a 7 minute long condensed ‘gathering of the forces’ of his titular Eight. Whilst there was no new images or a wide released trailer shown, we were told that the movies score will be composed by legendary composer Ennio Morricone.

Morricone composed one song for Tarantino’s last film, Django Unchained, and also had some of his previous movie sampled in the film. Morricone is best known for his work with Sergio Lionne and has created some of the most iconic western scores of all time.

Other news coming out of the panel was that the film would be shot in 65mm and would also be screened in 70mm before it is shown in any other format. Tarantino has long been a supporter of film over digital and his distribution choices reinforces that.

Tarantino also confirmed that he would make one more western after The Hateful Eight.

The Hateful Eight is an ensemble cast film starring longtime Tarantino collaborators Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell & Walton Goggins teaming up with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Demian Bichir to make up the Eight.
