France The Hateful Eight - Les Huit Salopards - Edition Prestige Vintage



The Hateful Eight - Les Huit Salopards (Edition Prestige Vintage)

Release Date: May 25th 2016
Label: SND Films
Region: free (according to Amazon.fr)
Amazon.fr link: http://www.amazon.fr/dp/B01CT959UK?
Price (as of 03/18/16): 89.99 EUR

Languages: French, English (both DTS-HDMA 5.1)
Subtitles: French

Bonus Contents:

- Book "Quentin Tarantino, un cinéma déchaîné" (in French)
- Combo 4-Tray Digipak including the DVD and BluRay of the film
- Double Vinyl LP Soundtrack by Ennio Morricone
- An original 70mm film frame.
- A film poster signed by Quentin Tarantino, Kurt Russell and Walton Goggins
Also, at least the product shot also shows the original screenplay for TH8, not mentioned in the specs.

This release seems to be the only version worldwide of the roadshow cut of the film. The main cover contains the inscription "Version Longue" (Extended Version). The digipak contains this inscription as well, followed by some more indecipherable text.

Update of March 21, 2016: it seems that the distributor's package design is incorrect and it's in fact just the theatrical version, not the Roadshow cut.

This movie was treated so unfairly in the States. Yes, it had that glorious 70mm Roadshow at 96 theaters (with the other four screens in Canada), but after that, it did not get the awards and nominations it should have received.

So many people waste time complaining that Tarantino is "over[insert verb]" but I thought this film was an absolute joy (I went back to the Roadshow two more times within a week). Was it perfect? Of course not, there were too many tonal shifts, for one thing. But I was incredibly disappointed to see the film robbed of the Oscar for Cinematography and of nominations for Best Director and Best Picture, amongst others. I also really wanted the film to be a hit because I wanted the investment in film technology to pay off for other films in the future.

As for this release, I will keep my eye on it, as I do want the Roadshow cut on BD or UHD combo pack. Hopefully, a US release is in the cards, but who knows.

It must be a big box to fit the LP in (why not a CD?). At 90 euro, an easy pass for me. If it is the Roadshow version (& it looks like it), well that's a game changer, so QT is happy for the Roadshow to be seen at home...that's if it is the Roadshow version.

I was unable to see the roadshow version because it did not play in my town and I was quite disappointed in that. Nevertheless, I saw the film twice and I agree with you on its merits.

I definitely want the roadshow version on blu and I am glad there appears to be at least one release. Like you, I will wait to see all the options.

My personal opinion: if this set had English titling, it would be priceless!

If it's really the Roadshow Version, plus Oscar-winning score on vinyl, plus a film cell, and whatever extra goodies are thrown in, all for about $100 -- I'm definitely in. But I guess we won't know if it's really the Roadshow until May? (Also does Amazon France ship to US?)

Amazon France ships everywhere. They will even subtract the French VAT from the price when shipping outside Europe.

Do we know how many copies of this there are? Surely it's a pretty limited supply when you take into account the signed poster.

Tarantino is pulling the same crap he did with the DVD release of Grindhouse, where the original, long version was only released in a single country (Japan) in a very expensive box-set.

I was in Grindhouse (very briefly!) and thought "bugger that" at the extortionate price to get the whole thing.

Good question. Probably gonna just pull the trigger on this pre-order now to be safe rather than sorry. Wish Amazon took PayPal though.

EDIT: Pre-ordered, price came up as 74,99 Euro + 8,50 Euro for shipping, for a total of about $94 USD. Not bad. I don't even listen to vinyl or have a player to do so, so I might just end up selling it and recouping some of the cost.

BTW, Pieter V. posted in the US Hateful Eight BD thread that there's a barebones release in Brazil which purportedly has the Roadshow version. Cheaper and less space-consuming option, but again, it's not 100% confirmed like this one seems to be.

I highly doubt that Tarantino himself is to blame in the way you think. The Weinstein Brothers do seem to give him a lot of latitude, so perhaps he was able to influence certain aspects of the video masters, and particularly, the video release in the US (and possibly, English-speaking countries), but The Hateful Eight, like most of Tarantino's films, was licensed in several territories, and in the end the licensor and licensees decide what content will be in each release. That's what happened with Grindhouse and Kill Bill on DVD in Japan, and subsequently, with Grindhouse on Blu-ray. Tarantino's next two films were also backed by Hollywood majors (Universal, Columbia/Sony) so there was more uniformity in the video releases.

For example, I will be keeping an eye on Japan, where it looks like GAGA will be releasing The Hateful Eight on video this year. That release could be special.

Oh, I've gone for one. I nearly bought the soundtrack but as this includes it, the long version of the film and autographs, I'm in. £72 delivered to the UK. I hope the poster is properly autographed and not just a poster with an autographed card stuck onto it.

Re Grindhouse - I thought Australia had that long version on BD as well? I had one in my hand, and decided not to bother.

Me too, that's what made me consider this not terrible value. The LP is a limited edition too, as I recall. CD, man, sooooo 90s retro that would be

Ordered a copy to Australia. About $125 AUD at this point. I am wondering whether it is the full LP or a shorter/ smaller version

It sure does, got my hopes up.

As for the vinyl, it's says double vinyl so I imagine it's the same. That would cost about £25 on it's own.

I want to order one but the last thing I got from them was smashed to hell. Then it took a month to get my refund after paying 5 times what I paid to ship it here to send it back....

I mostly want it for the signed poster although it's a shame the whole eight aren't on there. The 70mm version -- and by the way, the full digipak text cover says "Version Longue 70mm Ultra Panavision" -- is a nice bonus though. For $100, especially when this could end up being worth much more, it's a no-brainer to at least pre-order.
