Hateful Eight is storming into theaters on Christmas Day.
Quentin Tarantino’s newest film is set for a limited debut on Dec. 25 in 70mm format and will hit theaters nationwide on Jan. 8 in digital release, The Weinstein Co. said on Friday.
The Civil War-era Western joins a crowded holiday frame that includes Dec. 25 wide releases for Sony’s Will Smith NFL drama Concussion, Warner Bros.’ Point Break remake and Open Road’s Oliver Stone-directed drama Snowden. And Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be continuing its run after a Dec. 18 debut.
Tarantino wrote and directed Hateful Eight, which includes Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir and Jennifer Jason Leigh among its cast. The filmmaker’s last drama, Django Unchained, opened on Dec. 25, 2012, en route to earning more than $400 million globally and a best picture Oscar nomination.
