Tarantino's THE HATEFUL EIGHT Rides Onto Home Video (3/29) & Digital HD (3/15)
Quentin Tarantino's controversial western, The Hateful Eight, lands on Blu-ray& DVD March 29th and VOD on March 15th. According to The Weinstein Company, we'll be getting the shorter release version at about 168 minutes, rather than the longer road show version with the overture and intermission. While it's a tiny bit disappointing, they told us this a long time ago, so it's not a surprise.
