‘It Follows’ Director Responds to Tarantino Criticism

‘It Follows’ Director Responds to Tarantino Criticism

It Follows isn't a box office blockbuster by any means, earning $14.6 million throughout its theatrical run, but it opened rather large for an indie, earning $160,089 from just four theaters, for a whopping $40,022 per-screen average. The thriller, which also stars Keir Gilchrist, Lili Sepe, Loren Bass and Jake Weary, expanded to 1,218 theaters in its third weekend, cracking the top 10 for three straight weeks throughout late March and April. Do you think Quentin Tarantino crossed the line with his comments about It Follows? Or do you think he makes some valid points?

Hey QT, why don't we get together over a beer and talk about these notes. I have a few of my own for you.— DavidRobertMitchell (@DRobMitchell) August 26, 2015

It Follows was released March 13th, 2015.

Tarantino Planning Third Western, Ennio Morricone to Score ‘Hateful Eight’

Ennio Morricone has over 500 scoring credits to his name, including timeless classics such as Once Upon a Time in the West, A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, The Untouchables and Bugsy, just to name a few. Quentin Tarantino has frequently used his work while putting together the soundtracks for his previous movies, and the composer provided an original song, "Ancora Qui," for 2012's Django Unchained. The seven-minute clip that the director showed featured music from the composer's work on the 1982 classic The Thing.

It isn't known if or when the director plans on releasing the seven-minute clip from The Hateful Eight to the public, but we'll be sure to keep you posted as soon as more updates come in. The Hateful Eight is slated to open in limited release on Christmas Day, in over 50 theaters with 70MM projectors, before opening nationwide in January.

‘The Hateful Eight’ Opens in 70MM on Christmas Day

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino has set out to equip 50 U.S. theaters with 70MM projectors as the premiere of his anticipated Western The Hateful Eight grows near. The reason is simple. The Hateful Eight will be released Christmas day in 70mm only. It will then be followed by its digital projection release in early January, two weeks later. This follows the same release pattern as Django Unchained.

Quentin Tarantino and his cinematographer Robert Richardson went big with The Hateful Eight, shooting on 65mm film stock using classic Panavision lenses for a 2.78:1 aspect ratio presentation. The Christmas Day debut marks the widest 70MM release in 20 years. The director is a strong proponent of shooting on film, and led the fight to keep Kodak open. A full theater list has not yet been made available, but an update is expected closer to the December 25 release date.
