Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight may be bombing at the box office, but it's still reaching for the stars: Astronauts aboard the International Space Station are expected to get a screener of Tarantino's bloody western this weekend.

According to the New York Post, NASA contacted The Weinstein Co. to get the astronauts access to the movie. (There has already been a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens aboard the ISS, which is absolutely the best place to see a Star Wars movie.)

Apparently there is a projector and screen onboard the International Space Station for occasional movie nights. 

“I don’t think they have a screen large enough for the 70mm roadshow version," a Weinstein Co. rep said to the Post, "but we’re thrilled the astros will experience the film in space.”
