The Weinstein Co. just released the new poster, or a new poster, for the Hateful 8, the new Quentin Tarantino film starring Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh. We know we’re getting great dialogue, good action set pieces and lots of violence. The film likely not disappoint Tarantino fans.

99 homes feat

Charismatic and ruthless businessman, Rick Carver (Academy nominee Michael Shannon), is making a killing by repossessing homes – gaming the real estate market, Wall Street banks and the US government. When he evicts Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield), a single father trying to care for his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and young son (newcomer Noah Lomax), Nash becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for Carver – the very man who evicted him in the first place. Carver promises Nash a way to regain his home and earn security for his family, but slyly seduces him into a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost – on Carver’s orders, Nash must evict families from their homes. As Nash falls deeper into Carver’s web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.

The Hateful Eight has had such a long bumpy road but once it was on track to roll, the publicity machine is on fire. Here is your first look of one revived star (Jennifer Jason-Leigh) joined by the rad Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson.

This Vanity Fair cover is encouraging because it looks like they’re deliberately putting Daisy Ridley front and center, as in, she’s THE STAR. Some say she’s the new Luke, therefore the actual lead and driving force and some say she’s one of three leads. Adam Driver is one, Oscar Isaac is another. John Boyega, Harrison Ford and Chewy join her. I will be heartbroken if this turns out not to be the case. Star Wars is the one franchise that could sell no matter who or what was in the lead so it would be mighty brave of them to have a female at the center. I guess we shall see. If it turns out to be thus, color me impressed.

Here are a few photos taken by Annie Leibowitz for Vanity Fair.

Poltergeist feat

Not sure what to make of the fact that this poster for the Poltergeist remake is more unsettling than almost everything in the trailer. Have they just re-shot the very same screenplay from 1982, complete with identical dialogue and line readings? (Am I the last one to find out about this or is it not true?) If the only upgrade is to enlarge the haunted TV to 1080p and give us more digital trickery to replace the incredible practical effects of the original, then I can’t say that I’m much more excited to see this now than I was before. But yes, I’ll admit, somehow this year’s clown is scarier, even when he’s sitting still. Nearly as scary as seeing this uncanny clone of Heather O’Rourke who’s playing Carol Anne 2.0 — yikes, that’s some advanced movie technology.

I think this might actually be the poster. Okay, Awards Daily readers, imagine what POSSIBLE. But first you have to accept their limitations (they’re mostly old white guys), accept the limitations of Hollywood overall (mostly run by white guys), accept the limitations of film criticism in 2015 (mostly white guys), accept the limitations of ticket buyers and the you can start to imagine what’s possible.

France, 1940. In the first days of occupation, beautiful Lucile Angellier (Michelle Williams) is trapped in a stifled existence with her controlling mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) as they both await news of her husband: a prisoner of war. Parisian refugees start to pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ own homes. Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts), the handsome and refined German officer staying with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and leads them into the tragedy of war.

Irène Némirovsky was already a renowned living in Paris when she began work on Suite Française in 1942. But due to events that transpired as she wrote it, the novel was unknown until it not rediscovered in 2006.

Publishers Weekly said of the novel:
Celebrated in pre-WWII France for her bestselling fiction, the Jewish Russian-born Némirovsky was shipped to Auschwitz in the summer of 1942, months after this long-lost masterwork was composed. Némirovsky, a convert to Catholicism, began a planned five-novel cycle as Nazi forces overran northern France in 1940. This gripping “suite,” collecting the first two unpolished but wondrously literary sections of a work cut short, have surfaced more than six decades after her death. The first, “Storm in June,” chronicles the connecting lives of a disparate clutch of Parisians, among them a snobbish author, a venal banker, a noble priest shepherding churlish orphans, a foppish aesthete and a loving lower-class couple, all fleeing city comforts for the chaotic countryside, mere hours ahead of the advancing Germans. The second, “Dolce,” set in 1941 in a farming village under German occupation, tells how peasant farmers, their pretty daughters and petit bourgeois collaborationists coexisted with their Nazi rulers. In a workbook entry penned just weeks before her arrest, Némirovsky noted that her goal was to describe “daily life, the emotional life and especially the comedy it provides.” This heroic work does just that, by focusing—with compassion and clarity—on individual human dramas.

Hateful Eight feat

Last week at Comic-Con Quentin Tarantino confessed that he’s stopped throwing a fit about the leaked script for The Hateful Eight and decided he’ll go ahead and film the damned thing anyway. The new poster seems to hint that the story might contain some violence? The poster also announces that The Hateful Eight will get a special Roadshow Release in Cinemascope — just like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Paint Your Wagon got. Because as we know, just like 3D and Smell-o-Vision, Cinemascope has a proven history of making movies automatically better. (Name 10 of the 200 movies shot in Cinemascope that aren’t junk and I’ll give you an extra-wide m e r i t b a d g e).

A few months ago at Cannes, Tarantino failed to scare very many people by proclaiming “The Sky Is Falling!” “Digital Projection Is The Death Of Cinema,”* so it’s good to see Quentin Is Here To Rescue Cinema with a big gimmick event like a Roadshow Theatrical Release! It’ll be just like 1952! Kewl!

*(no kidding, he really said this: “Digital projection is the death of cinema. The fact that most films aren’t presented in 35mm means that the world is lost.”

I wouldn’t make up a crazy quote like that. He actually said that shit out loud and people wrote it down as if it meant anything.)

Nobody tell Tarantino about how charging twice as much for a ticket to see movie in a special super-duper format is The Chronic Illness of Cinema. He gets angry so easy these days. Violently angry.

Hateful Eight

wild fea

Synopsis: With the breakup of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
