Los Angeles, Nov 29 (IANS) Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, “The Hateful Eight”, a movie that has been shot on 70mm film projection technology, is attempting to revive the dying culture.

“The Hateful Eight” is shot on 70mm film, which takes one back to the movies in the 1950s and 1960s like “Okhlahoma” and Bollywood’s “Sholay”.

“‘The Hateful Eight’ is by far one of Tarantino’s finest work and possibly the last 70mm film. We are absolutely thrilled and are eagerly awaiting its release on 15th January, 2016,” Kamal Gianchandani, CEO of PVR Pictures said in a statement.

“Some of the world’s most iconic films are made in 70mm and ‘The Hateful Eight’ is definitely ruling the league of such films,” he added.

PVR is also making arrangements to host a special trailer launch at Mumbai’s 70mm theatre to give the audience the experience of it.

“It’s a sheer joy to enable Indian audiences to enjoy Quentin Tarantino’s unique creative intent. We are certain that ‘The Hateful Eight’ will be in cinemas for a very long time in year 2016,” Gianchandani said.

The film is set to release in India on January 15 next year by PVR Pictures.
