Background info (via Wikipedia):
“The Hateful Eight” is a 2015 American western mystery film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern as eight strangers who seek refuge from a blizzard in a stagecoach stopover some time after the American Civil War.
Tarantino announced the film in November 2013, stating it had originally started as a novel and sequel to Django Unchained. After the script leaked in January 2014, he cancelled the film, but announced that he had changed his mind after directing a live reading of the script at the United Artists Theater in Los Angeles. Filming began on December 8, 2014, near Telluride, Colorado. The score, composed by Ennio Morricone, was his first complete Western score in 35 years.
Distributed by The Weinstein Company in the United States, The Hateful Eight was released on December 25, 2015, in a roadshow release in 70 mm film and had a wide digital release on December 30, 2015. It generally received positive reviews from critics, though some expressed unease at the abusive treatment of the Daisy Domergue character. For his work on the score, Morricone won the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Original Score. The film was also nominated for two other Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Leigh) and Best Cinematography (Robert Richardson).
