In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of nefarious characters.
Composer Ennio Morricone was quoted as saying he would never work with Quentin Tarantino, after how his music was handled on Django Unchained (2012). He ultimately changed his mind and he agreed to score this film.

Got room for one more?
The "snow" Joe Gage tracks and allows in when he angrily enters the station does not melt and only "disappears" (leaving a bone dry floor) multiple scenes later.
The roadshow version of the film opens with a faux-vintage Weinstein Company logo, in flat white-on-blue with a very 70s font along with a "Cinerama" logo. The first few credits appear in the same font as the logo's before switching to Tarantino's usual Friz Quadrata. The standard release opens with only the normal Weinstein Company logo before going directly into the sweeping Panavision shots.
From the week of December 25th to 31st 2015, the film was shown exclusively in a 'Roadshow' version at 100 locations across North America (about half of them were 70mm film projection, the other half digital). This version played without previews and ran 187 minutes, including a 4-minute Overture and a 12-minute Intermission. The 'Multiplex' version (digital only) runs 167 minutes, and was shown from January 1, 2016 onwards. In addition to not having the Overture and Intermission, it removes approximately six minutes of footage that Quentin Tarantino felt played better in the 70mm format.
