Quentin Tarantino has accused executives at the Walt Disney company of alleged “extortionist practices” in their refusal to relinquish a cinema in Los Angeles for showings of Tarantino’s new movie, The Hateful Eight.HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was hoping to release his new Western “Hateful Eight” on Christmas at Hollywood’s Cinerama Dome, known for its 110-foot screen and rare 70 mm film projector. The Cinerama Dome in Hollywood is currently booked to play Star Wars: The Force Awakens throughout the holiday season, but Tarantino says he and distributors The Weinstein Company had a verbal agreement with the picture house to book it for a 70mm run of The Hateful Eight, which opens in the US on Christmas Day. “It’s vindictive, it’s mean and it’s extortion,” said the director, claiming that when the ArcLight chain (who own the Cinerama Dome) attempted to tell Disney they would honour their agreement to show The Hateful Eight, the studio then threatened to pull Star Wars from all the chain’s cinemas. “It was real bad news and it fucking pissed me off,” added Tarantino. Tarantino, known for his technophobia, only shoots his movies on traditional film. “The movie is shot in 65 mm, then projected in 70 mm, with the image twice the size you’re used to,” actor Samuel L.

Tarantino says that Disney threatened the Dome’s cinema group, Arclight Cinemas, that the new Star Wars films would be pulled from all of their theatres if they didn’t renege on the agreement with Tarantino. This was further backed up by the fact tickets to the Star Wars film were available from the 19 October, but Tarantino had only recently heard about the situation. However, tickets had been on sale for the Christmas screenings of Star Wars at the Dome since October, and Deadline reports that Disney arranged screenings at the Dome months ago – but Tarantino only learned of the news far more recently. It’s the Disney people.” The director adds that he has made a lot of money for Disney when they owned Miramax which released Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill series. There’s a few movies coming out around the same time… none of us are any serious competition to Star Wars.” Howard called on Disney CEO Bob Iger to “be a gracious man”, saying: “Listen, Bob, I don’t give a s**t about this theatre.

Quentin’s a weirdo – sorry Quentin. “The f**king kit, they’ve got the stupid 70mm, they’ve got all the s**t that he cares about, he just wants to show his goddamn movie there… it’s Christmas, for Christ’s sake.” There was a beautiful episode during the post-match celebrations on the Twickenham pitch which told us much about the 2015 All Blacks, a little cameo which informed us that as well as being the most brilliant exponents of the game that rugby has yet to witness, they possess that same rare champions’ class off the field too.
