Trailering More of The Hateful Eight

Watch the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (Christmas roadshow, Jan. 8th digital), boasting more breathtaking imagery in Ultra Panavision 70.

You can’t trust anyone in this post-Civil War thriller with Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir, and Walton Goggins.

Shot on 65mm film with classic Panavision lenses in the widest aspect ratio of 2.76:1, this marks the first anamorphic 70mm theatrical release in nearly 50 years. The two-week roadshow engagement The two-week roadshow engagement (they’re aiming for 100 theaters with the Cinerama Dome in contention for LA, of course) would be the best holiday gift for cinephiles.

The Hateful Eight will also pit three-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (HugoThe AviatorJFK) in a shoot-out with Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki, who’s going for a third Oscar in a row for his own frozen wilderness adventure, The Revenant, from Birdman director Alejandro G. Iñárritu.

Richardson proclaimed that Ultra Panavision 70 more than reinforces the notion that film can coexist with digital: it provides such unparalleled scope, resolution and beauty that everyone should be using it. “When we saw Sam Jackson in a closeup — or anyone — it just aided the skin. It’s remarkable. We never used diffusion, the only filters we ever did were outside. It was stunning.”
