Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ Opening This Christmas Day

Now that the Star Wars bubble has burst, it’s time to look forward to this week’s Christmas Day releases. The first up is one we’ve been waiting for since last Christmas, when a version of the script was leaked and writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained) was urged to file a lawsuit over the incident. The Hateful Eight is the eighth writing/directing project from Tarantino and is another Western outing that takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming, where a group of bounty hunters are forced to seek shelter from a blizzard, only to find themselves in a game of betrayal and deception. This time out, Tarantino’s stylistic approach to filmmaking will be backed by a full score from Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone, whose last Western-film score went to 1975’s A Genius, Two Friends, and an Idiot, but he is more famously known in the Western genre for his contributions to films like A Fistful of Dollars (1964), The Good The Bad and the Ugly (1966), and Once Upon A Time in the West (1968). Starring in the new film are actors Jennifer Jason Leigh (Road to Perdition, The Machinist), Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street, Foxcatcher), Kurt Russell (Stargate, Death Proof), Walton Goggins (Predators, Sons of Anarchy), Zoe Bell (Grindhouse, Oblivion), and Oscar-nominee Bruce Dern (Monster, Nebraska), along with Tarantino regulars Samuel L. Jackson (Basic, The Avengers), Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction), and Michael Madsen (Free Willy, Kill Bill Vol. 2). The film will be getting a limited release in theaters this Christmas Day, owing to Tarantino’s decision to present the film on 70mm projection screens before the nationwide expansion on January 16th. If a theater near you is showing this one on Christmas Day I would definitely give it some consideration; anything Tarantino is always great, and throw Morricone into the mix and probably got one of the best Westerns that’s hit the big screen in a while, so enjoy!

New Horror Film From Eli Roth ‘The Green Inferno’ Opening In Theaters This Week

It’s been a while since director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) has had a new project on the big screen, but now his latest drama titled The Green Inferno is opening in theaters this week. Written by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock, Knock Knock), the film follows a group of volunteers who venture to the Amazon rainforest in order to help preserve it, until a group of natives discovers them and their trip of “good intentions” quickly turns into a nightmare. Starring in the film are Eli Roth regulars Lorenza Izzo (Que pena tu Familia, Aftershock), Ariel Levy (Fuerzas Especiales, Aftershock), Aaron Burns (Grindhouse, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Scar, Project X), and Magda Apanowicz (The Butterfly Effect, A Reason). The trailer looks pretty suspenseful, and knowing Roth’s style I’m sure there will be a great amount of gore layered over with a grim sense of humor, so it should be an entertaining watch nevertheless. The trailer is available here on MADE. Enjoy!
