THE HATEFUL EIGHT Poster Confirms 2015 Release Date for Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film

Fresh off confirmation straight from the horse’s mouth that The Hateful Eight will be Quentin Tarantino’s next film, we have the very first, official The Hateful Eight poster.  Not only is this an excellent piece of artwork that teases the bloody story of the Western, but the poster also confirms a planned 2015 release (likely in December) as well as the fact that Tarantino will shoot the pic in “Super CinemaScope”.  We previously heard that Tarantino was aiming to film The Hateful Eight in 70mm, and this poster indeed confirms that we’re in for one epic-looking Western.  The story follows a group of passengers on a stagecoach that get caught and trapped in a blizzard, where they’re forced to confront the ratcheting tension that develops.

Hit the jump to check out the Hateful Eight poster in full and for more on the film.

quentin-tarantino-the-hateful-eightWe now know that Tarantino intends to start production on The Hateful Eight in early 2015, and while some might see that as late given the proposed 2015 release date, you’ll remember that Django Unchained was still shooting in July 2012 before its release in December.

The cast thus far announced for The Hateful Eight includes Bruce Dern, Samuel L. JacksonMichael MadsenKurt RussellJames RemarAmber TamblynWalton Goggins, and Zoe Bell.  Of course, further additions or omissions could occur before production begins, but this is quite the stellar lineup and I’m incredibly eager to see what Tarantino puts together with yet another Western.

Read the official synopsis below, followed by the Hateful Eight poster via Empire.

The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

    Yay! I was worried that script leak would discourage him for making it.

        Thankyou. I just love how people confuse their opinion is fact. Tarantino is a symbol of pop culture in this era and if he is such a ” overrated hack,” why are his movies being studied in film schools across the globe.

        Transformers movies are also studied in film schools – but not for flattering reasons. Just because a film is studied in film school doesn’t speak to that film’s quality.

      • BigJimSlade

        In Tarantino’s case? Yes, it does.

        No, it doesn’t. It all depends on the professor and/or topic.

      Whoa bro. It’s ok to disagree on films, just don’t be a dick about it. For example I greatly dislike Rocky Horror Picture Show but I don’t go around bashing people who like it on random articles. If you don’t like Tarantino then don’t comment on articles concerning him.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        I feel like there’s got to be a middle ground between “if you like something praise it” and “if you don’t like it, keep it to yourself”. An open dialogue or exchange of opinions maybe? And he didn’t actually bash anyone but the director.

      • Humbaba

        I can only speak from experience Lex. I went to UTFI film school in Houston Tx for a bit and we studied Tarantino’s film method largly because of his excellent use of retro film nuances like the classic zoom-in techiques utilized in alot of 1970 films. Also, we learned of how someone who didnt go to film school shot his first 2 movies way under budget and on time because of improvising.cutting out scenes that werent needed (i.e. Resevior Dogs & Pulp FIction). So yea, i get that he could be used as what not to do but in my case and various website articles, he is largely praised.

        And I get that there are definitely courses or discussions with the theme that he is a great filmmaker, and I won’t argue the man hasn’t made some incredibly fun/enjoyable films. But there’s a reason there’s a long-running conversation over the man as either an expert homage artist or an unoriginal hack who hasn’t had a single original idea for a shot in his entire career. He’s been at the center of the homage or theft conversation for (almost) as long as he’s been making movies. It doesn’t help that, like Aaron Sorkin, all of his dialogue tends to have a very specific style with little variation across different films and characters.

        So, I won’t argue that he’s not a crowd-pleasing, budget-cutting wizard; all I’m saying is that to say that any dialogue about Tarantino in an academic setting would be exclusively positive would be to ignore the obvious flaws that many who went to film school (or have just watched a lot of films in general) could spot.

        Edit: After an additional moment of reflection though, a first-time director shooting his movie on a shoestring/virtually non-existent budget isn’t a trend started by or exclusive to Tarantino. So why people praise him for that like it’s something unique, is perplexing. That’s a pretty common thing.

        “So why people praise him for that like it’s something unique, is perplexing. That’s a pretty common thing.”

        You’re correct, it happens all the time but the topic in my professor’s lecture was how a no-name film geek did this with no experience whatsoever. Tarantino even admitted in an interview that he borrowed from other classic films all the time as with most directors (Kubric, Speilburg, Polanski). But like you said, its nothing new but nowadays…nothing is really new imo. Most ideas are borrowed but refined into someone else’s style. Again, this is merely my opinion of the matter. Feel free to disagree.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        I don’t disagree, but do you really think no one is doing anything new anymore? Nobody?

        Also, QT didn’t really do it with “no experience whatsoever”. He did create a film before Reservoir Dogs, and with Reservoir Dogs he had a bit of help from an experienced producer. And even if we assumed he did have “no experience” that’s still not unique considering the same can be said for like Kevin Smith, Kubrick, James Cameron, and more. It just seems like we give that an awful lot of weight since it’s not exactly rare. Hell, Cameron was a truck driver.

        You should just shut the fuck up Lex…

        Aww, how cute, you’ve pieced together the English language via Tarantino movies.

    Maybe I’ve just got Star Wars on the brain, but that poster looks like a lightsaber hilt with a red blade.

    Meh. I like his work but I wish he’d explore something different. His past few movies have felt thematically familiar and I’d love Tarantino to break his comfort zone, even if it results in disaster.

    “The 8th film by Quentin Tarantino”

    So is he considering Death Proof to be a film on its own? It was a double feature (with Rodriguez’ Planet Terror) but it was feature length so I guess that counts.

    • Person

      And he considers (correctly) Kill Bill a single film.

  • kemo

    Glad to see Mr. Blonde is back in a QT movie. I just wish that Hans Landa was in it. –his best characters besides Joseph “Joe” Cabot
