Pleased were we to hear that Quentin Tarantino intends to not only shoot his next movie on 70mm film, but that he's pushing forward to have it screened that way as well. Yep, the star-studded (and presumably stylishly violent and dialogue-heavy) Western The Hateful Eight is going to get the widest 70mm release a movie has received in about 20 years. The last movie to get such a release was Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet back in 1996; more recently, Paul Thomas Anderson's 2012 opus The Master had a limited 70mm release. (A friend comments that Anderson used a digital intermediary print when putting his 70mm prints together, and wonders if the film-purist Tarantino will be pressured to do the same.)
JJ Abrams, and a vociferous Christopher Nolan convinced them to preserve the option of celluloid as a filmmaking medium (and thus keeping Kodak in the film manufacturing business). This enables some of Hollywood's finest cinematographers to continue working with their preferred tools, and offers you a deeper, richer visual experience when you step into one of the rare theatres still equipped to show films ON film.
