Quentin Tarantino has teamed up with Ennio Morricone to score The Hateful Eight, the first time the director has opted not to compile his own eclectic soundtrack. Now, the score overlaying the opening go the film, the overture, is available to hear online. And sample again and again, and maybe just keep on a continuous loop leading up to when you can see the film.
Here is the overture:
The score has everything. It has doom and dread, grand sweeping gestures, and that wonderful Ennio Morricone touch to match Tarantino’s spectacular vision.
The Hateful Eight will be released in its special Roadshow 70mm edition Christmas Day, with an expanded release December 31. You can purchase tickets to the Roadshow here if you’re within range of one of these theaters/cities.
