Let Samuel L. Jackson Teach You About 70mm Film in Promo for ‘The Hateful Eight’

On Christmas Day, Quentin Tarantino’s newest film hits theaters with a select few scheduled to show the spaghetti western in old-school 70mm format. Filmed in 65mm and projected in 70, dedicated fans will enjoy the roadshow treatment that includes a program and intermission to provide full effect of how films used to be shown. The video above is led by Samuel L. Jackson, and also features appearances from Tarantino, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walter Goggins, and more.

The Hateful Eight hits theaters on December 25th, and be sure to check out the synopsis below.

“While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. Greeted there by four strangers, the eight travelers soon learn that they may not make it to their destination after all.”
