Quentin Tarantino "stormed out of a meeting" after Universal offered him the chance to release the Hateful Eight on iPhone
Quentin Tarantino is like him or always loathes a man with a vision. You can imagine that this vision did not result in one of his last films being released exclusively on iPhones. However, he allegedly noticed this during a studio meeting - and you can imagine how the legendary director reacted.
A Wall Street Journal profile by Jeff Shell, CEO of NBCUniversal, reported a meeting he and Tarantino had during the preliminary talks about the release of The Hateful Eight (via SlashFilm).
It says: “Jeff Shell, at the time the director of the Universal Studio, was expressing his own tone. "What if we released [The Hateful Eight] on iPhones?" He said. "Great," replied Mr. Tarantino and stormed out of the meeting. "
Aside from U2 albums, it would be a brave step to release a film of this size on iPhones - but above all a film with a more definite "roadshow" presentation that was shot on 70mm, with additional scenes and a pause.
In the meantime, Tarantino joined The Weinstein Company, which covered the 70mm cost. Interestingly, director The Hateful Eight later turned into a four-part miniseries on Netflix.
What next? Principle of zooming? No time to die from a cup and string? Ironically, the current theatrical situation could lead to some more out-of-the-box movie ideas being reviewed, but giving Tarantino the opportunity to release his pride and joy in something that you can put in your pocket would never be a good thing end up. The only surprise was that he didn't drop a few F-bombs to a good degree.
