Star Wars: The Force Awakens will release nationwide on December 18, and although the hype and excitement surrounding the release of the movie has been unparalleled, there is one person who can't quite bring himself to enjoy the celebration – Quentin Tarantino.
During an interview on the 'Howard Stern Show' on Wednesday, the Oscar-winning director accused Disney of alleged "extortionist practices."
Here's what happened...
Tarantino, sounding clearly upset, explains:
"We were gonna play at the Cinerama Dome on the 25th. We were gonna open there and play there exclusively for two weeks. And Star Wars was gonna play the two weeks before us.
So the thing about it was, Disney, who owns Star Wars, decided, 'Well, you know what? Maybe we wanna play throughout the entire holiday season. So we’re gonna go to the Cinerama Dome and say that they can’t honor their contract with us to show the Hateful Eight.'"
