Director Quentin Tarantino’s latest Golden Globe-winning film The Hateful Eight is screening in Egyptian movie theatres starting 13 January.
The film was recently awarded the Best Original Score at the Golden Globe Awards, going to Italian composer Ennio Morricone. Like many other Globe-winning films, it is predicted to compete at the Oscars.
The eighth film in Tarantino’s signature blend of action, humour, and over-the-top violence, The Hateful Eight is set post-American Civil War during a wintry blizzard in Wyoming. When a bounty hunter known as “The Hangman” and his fugitive prisoner stop for shelter on their way to the town of Red Rock, they meet a collection of nefarious characters and they all soon learn they might not reach their destinations.
The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir and Michael Madsen.
At the Golden Globes the film was nominated for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Leigh’s role.
It also won the award for Best Use of Music in a Film and Best Supporting Actress at the San Diego Film Critics Society, as well as Best Original Screenplay from the National Board of Review. The Hollywood Film Awards granted the film the Ensemble of the Year Award.
