The Western's previous release date was Jan. 8.

Moviegoers can now christen the New Year with a viewing of Quentin Tarantino's latest film, The Hateful Eight.

The movie will now be opening wide on New Year's Day with the 35mm digital print version of the film, and will then broaden to even more theaters the following weekend.

The film was previously slated to open nationwide on Jan. 8.

The Weinstein Company is still going ahead with the Christmas Day release of 70mm prints that will play on roughly 100 screens around the country, for a two-week run. 

The Weinstein Company board of directors was meeting Friday in New York to discuss The Hateful Eight’s rollout, among other things.
