Quentin Tarantino Slams Disney for Pushing 'The Hateful Eight' Out of Theaters for 'Star Wars'

Quentin Tarantino is not happy with Disney.

The 52-year-old director claims the studio forced his film The Hateful Eight out of Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinerama Dome to make room for Star Wars.

“A couple of days ago…the Disney distribution people came down to the ArcLight and said, ‘No, you’re going to break your commitment with The Hateful Eight,” Quentin told EW. “‘You’re going to not give them the theater on Dec. 25. You’re going to play Star Wars throughout the holiday season. And if you don’t, we’re going to pull E — the biggest movie ever made — we’re going to pull it from all the ArcLight theaters. So they actually literally are engaging in extortionist practices against us…They’re coming out to destroy us, to grind us into the gravel.”

    Tarantino is being unrealistic. Star Wars is going to be huge over the holidays, appealing to all ages and families… The Hateful Eight? No. Theaters will weigh what is likely to make the most money and pull in people. Money talks. They’re not trying to destroy you Quentin… they’re the ones being realistic. Opening your film opposite what everyone knew would be a hurricane force film event? Come on. The fault lies with your ego Mr. Tarantino.
