Back in December, The Weinstein Company hosted an event at Abbey Road Studios with The Hateful Eight director Quentin Tarantino and legendary composer Ennio Morricone, who conducted a special recording of his score for the film. Deadline was on the scene that day and came back with a fascinating interview. Now TWC has provided this exclusive featurette showing off Morricone conducting the film’s music. The video also proves once and for all that the two have patched up their differences, with Tarantino proclaiming that working with Morricone was the fulfillment of a childhood dream, and Morricone expressing his appreciation for the way Tarantino let him work, and how he found his inspiration. It’s short, but riveting nonetheless, and you can watch it here.
Hateful Eight is currently playing in theaters across the country in both Tarantino’s preferred 70mm format and standard digital projection. Set some years after the American Civil War, The Hateful Eight follows the tension and ultimately terror that ensues when eight strangers find themselves stranded together in a Wyoming Haberdashery during a blizzard. As the storm worsens, old grudges and lingering resentments both personal and political come to a head. Written and directed by Tarantino, it stars Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bichir, and Bruce Dern.
