No film footage or panel footage has yet hit the Interwebs, but meanwhile Quentin Tarantino released the above, beautiful, retro-Western style poster to promote his 2016 release, The Hateful Eight, in advance of his panel at San Diego Comic-Con today.
But the bigger news is that he disclosed that iconic composer Ennio Morricone will be creating the score for the film, his first Western movie score in more than 40 years. Morricone is known best for Western film classics A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, and Two Mules for Sister Sara. More recently he’s covered every other genre, including scores for Footloose, John Carpenter’s The Thing, Red Sonja, Once upon a Time in America, Cinema Paradiso, The Untouchables, Wolf, Mission to Mars, and Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.
Look for The Hateful Eight in theaters January 8, 2016.
