They're now officially counting Kill Bill as ONE feature so that The Hateful Eight can be Quentin Tarantino's official "8th" film. Convenient, eh? But that's okay because they should've been one film all along. And oh what gross film-splittings have occurred in their wake.
QUESTION: Shouldn't you start filming before releasing a poster?
The movie is not scheduled to start filming until 2015... and the poster assumes everything will happen on schedule and it will be out by the end of that year. Good luck, movie! This reminds me of Amir's rants about all those opening day announcements for secret movies. Hollywood has a preemie problem.
And may Quentin get this out of his system since this'll be his second consecutive nearly all male western. May he some day return to writing great female roles again because he's slipping into terrain that other writer/directors have covered sufficiently throughout time. Which is a bummer since he writes well for awesome actresses. (So cross your fingers that he's given Amber Tamblyn and Zoë Bell something interesting to do because he sure didn't offer Kerry Washington anything worthwhile in Django.)
FWIW my preference order of Tarantino's filmography
- Kill Bill Vol 1 (2003)
- Pulp Fiction (1994)
⇡ the ones i couldn't imagine life without
- Reservoir Dogs (1992)
- Inglourious Basterds (2009)
- Jackie Brown (1997)
- Kill Bill Vol 2 (2004)
⇣ and the only ones I dislike...
- Django Unchained (2012)
- Death Proof (2007)
