While the festival organizers are drooling over Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, “The Hateful Eight,” Quentin has declared that his film will not compete in any film festival this year, and will be released for the box office draw on the 25th of December this year.
Even though there is a big buzz around Quentin Tarantino’s next venture, he hasn’t finished filming it yet. His next movie, “The Hateful Eight,” which tells the story of eight bounty hunters brought together by a blizzard, is still incomplete. The release date is only five months away, but the director is still keeping his cool.
In an interview with the Vulture, Tarantino confessed to feeling a bit rushed as far as the movie is concerned, but also told the press jocundly that he wasn’t committing suicide yet. He said that the important thing here was to film the movie straight to the end. He will worry about embellishing it and making it even more interesting later. He said that he would just film the movie to the end first and make it better later in the review process.
Tarantino confessed that he only has about an hour’s worth of footage in yet. He also felt that he has to keep two steps ahead of the audience where visual sophistication is concerned. So he keeps that in mind when he is filming a scene. He told the interviewers that as time passes, audiences grow more and more savvy and sophisticated. He presented the case of fifties as an example. The audience in the sixties would chuckle at the technology that the movies used in the fifties. As the audience becomes cleverer, the directors have to think of better ways to engage their imaginations and Tarantino is always trying to stay one step ahead of them.
The new movie will pass all the movie festivals and go for a box office theatrical release. It is a suspense thriller with a talented cast and the director is confident that the movie will be a hit.
