Trivia

For the most part, the roles of Major Warren, John Ruth, Oswaldo, and Joe Gage were written with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen in mind. The role of Daisy Domergue was less specific, and many actresses were considered before Jennifer Jason Leigh was cast. Quentin Tarantino said, "Daisy became one of the most interesting characters, because she's on the page, but she's not on the page; an actress literally needs to invest in playing that character from beginning to end. They have to get you to that last chapter. It had to be an actress I could trust, and also a performer you enjoy watching her character work. When Jennifer came in, she was very impressive in the reading, but what really got me, was I'd just started watching a bunch of her movies. I had a whole Jennifer Jason Leigh film festival. I watched one, and I couldn't wait to put the next one in, she was such an entertaining actress, especially about that time in the 90s, like eXistenZ (1999), Georgia (1995), and especially Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle (1994). Those movies were built around her. Her performance was the center of the movie, and everything was built around that, and that's what was needed for Daisy."

Goofs

The dollar amounts of the bounties ($8,000, $10,000) are frequently mentioned. Assuming the story is set in the late 1860s, those amounts would be more than $200,000 today.


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
