    "Finally, the issue of white supremacy is being talked about and dealt with. And it’s what the movie’s about [...] It was already in the script. It was already in the footage we shot. It just happens to be timely right now. We’re not trying to make it timely. It is timely. I love the fact that people are talking and dealing with the institutional racism that has existed in this country and been ignored. I feel like it’s another ’60s moment, where the people themselves had to expose how ugly they were before things could change. I’m hopeful that that’s happening now."

    To capture the widest possible shot for his new film, The Hateful Eight, accomplished filmmaker Quentin Tarantino utilized Panavision’s Ultra 70mm cinema format. The Ultra 70mm is the widest cinema format in existence and is very rarely used. It has been used in a very small number of films, including Ben-Hur and Battle of the Bulge.

    Ultra Panavision 70 was originally used from 1957 to 1966, but Tarantino has opted to bring it back for his eighth feature film. Images on Ultra Panavision are captured using 65mm film (the extra 5mm that make up the 70mm projection print accommodates the soundtrack) and is recorded at the traditional 24fps used in cinema.

    With the last film shot using Ultra Panavision being Khartoum in 1966, acquiring lenses and gear for The Hateful Eight was no easy task. Thankfully, Panavision keeps all of their equipment in storage, so they were able to dig up equipment for Tarantino, but it had to be fixed up and retro-fitted. Some of the lenses used in the filming of The Hateful Eight hadn't seen light since the 1960s, but they still worked perfectly well and captured stunning imagery.
