There's a fair amount of movie stuff popping up today—like a new trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, or the fact some mouth-breathing nerd has ruined Disney's attempts to keep a secret of their Guardians of the Galaxy stinger—but the thing I'm most excited about? The news, via an ad in Empire, that Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will be coming out next year.

Aside from the rapidly approaching release date (and the fact Bruce Dern, the obvious culprit, has yet to be imprisoned for leaking Hateful Eight's script back in January), two other things are pretty interesting about that poster: The 70mm part, and the fancy-pants "special roadshow engagement" part. Portland currently doesn't have any theaters that can handle 70mm*, which means that, like some did with Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, if you want to see this one the way Tarantino wants people to, in 70mm, you might be looking at a drive up to Seattle's Cinerama. There are worse things.
*I've heard rumors, though, that at least one Portland theater is working on making 70mm a reality. Hopefully that does happen—and hopefully it happens before Hateful Eight's release, which it's probably safe to assume would be in December of 2015.
